Happy JulyI am at Casa Carol's for a few days with buddy Dudley while his mama is vacationing with her family. Anyone in my neighborhood with a beer and a backrub? I mean it's such torture here. She stocked the 'frig and all that jazz with fresh fruits & veggies, a blueberry pie (ssh - don't tell the carb police), and some nice meals for me. I have the use of her laptops, so I can get on the internet when I'm supposed to be writing.
And I AM writing. Also reading. Have 3 manuscripts to critique (yes, Jackie, Leigh, & Aimee, you are with me in spirit this week), 4 books of my own to read, and a slew of Carol's lining her bookshelves. If you like tearjerkers, pick up her Cattle Valley Days books. That one about Nick becoming mayor and facing a disaster. OMG. Book #12. WAAAAH. And the latest one, a follow up called Neil's' Guardian Angel!!!! ANOTHER tear jerker. (Pretty hot cover, too.) It's here: http://www.total-e-bound.com/product.asp?strParents=&CAT_ID=&P_ID=806
Okay, I have some news of my own. I sold to Carina Press. Color me happy. It's a romantic suspense, a Bobbie Cole book. No clue when it'll debut. Gotta meet my editor and go through edits and all of that first. But Sunny Bob is now a Harlequin author. And it feels gooood. :) I wouldn't have gotten the book done, much less submitted, if not for Heather Rae Scott , so thanks, girlfriend. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for pushing me, critiquing me, encouraging me, and listening to me whine about it all.
Happy 4th of July, everyone, whether you are in the states or not.
