blogs

I've neglected my blog terribly, I realized, and I have no excuse except that I've been busy:

1. Polishing my third book, which I turned in to my editor at the end of May.

2. Running the Tahmoh for Harlequin campaign--I'm up to 176 signatures on the petition thus far!

3. Sending out queries to agents for my Western-set fantasy.

4. Planning (and going) on vacation in Boston. (Fun times!)

5. Planning and writing the sequel to my Western-set fantasy.

6. Judging writing contests.

7. Crocheting.

I have no excuse for not updating my blog. At all.

 

 

 

 

 

So the blog tour begins for the release of Back to the Good Fortune Diner! I'll be talking about all kinds of things regarding the book, writing interracial romances, and more. Come and see me at these awesome websites—I'll be giving away copies of BTTGFD to commenters!

You can also find this list on the Events page.

Apologies for neglecting my blog. It's been a busy and rather stressful month. I had surgery to remove my gallbladder in October--in the weeks leading up to it, I was in and out of the E.R. and the doctor's office. I've had a stone measuring 1.9 cm inside me for a while, and after 7 attacks over two weeks, the surgeon said it was time for the gallbladder to go.

So here I am now, minus one gallbladder and plus a few abdominal scars. But now I can have all the bacon I want without fear of (serious) repercussions. Though I should probably, you know. Be healthier.

Send me a SASE and I'll send you a bookmark!

I've got bookmarks for Back to the Good Fortune Diner now! If you'd like you, send me a SASE and I'll be happy to forward a couple on to you:

In writing news, I'm working on my third book, another MMA story set in the same universe as Her Son's Hero, and starring Kyle Peters, Dom's wrestling coach. No release dates yet, but I'll keep you posted.

Also, I've finally finished my YA Western fantasy! It's been a project I've been working on for almost 3 years, and I'm hoping to get some beta readers and start sending it to agents in January.
