April 2010

Dear Friends and Readers:

It’s a hot, sunny April and I predict a lot of writing poolside with a tropical drink in my hand. This month is tax season (yuck!) and I tend to cringe from my lack of organizational skills when it comes to sorting through my files and receipts. I always try to keep everything in one place but with the traveling and moving, it’s been harder to keep everything organized when my life is in a suitcase or storage. Hopefully, I’ll see a big return this year but I won’t hold my breathe.

I know you’re probably anxious about waiting for summer to arrive but it’s going to arrive here before you know it. As for me, I have lots of plans which includes heading to the beach, writing retreat, maybe a conference and writing my fingers off. Speaking of which, my paranormal proposal is sitting on top of  the editor’s desks and waiting to be read. I’m just biting my nails while I wait on their responses. It’s always nerve-wracking during the wait period. The economy has definitely slowed down the buying process in New York so I can only be patient while they get through the submissions. Right now I’m diligently working on a contemporary proposal and then I’ll tackle a full manuscript and a sexy novella in the next few months. I forseee a lot of wine and chocolates in my future–Wish me luck!

If you’re going to be in the Orlando area, I’m happy to announce that I’m doing a group signing at Borders in Altamonte Springs, Florida in the Altamonte Mall on May 8, 2010. If you can make it, please stop by and say HELLO. I’m trying to figure out what kind of promotional items and prize I’ll giveaway at the event. Feel free to pass this bit of news around.

Looks like I’ll be living in the writing cave for a while so if I’m late to post in May, please forgive me. Life has been very busy of late so I’m not as active online as I normally am. Perhaps next month will be more entertaining….

Take care,
