Wow! I didn't realize how long it has been since I posted a blog. So much has been going on. I thought I'd treat this entry like a newsletter and update you.
ON THE BOOK FRONT . . .
See my pretty book family above? I just found out this week that there will be a new addition this coming November. Yeah! I always breath a sigh of relief when a book is accepted. So much hard work goes into a novel just to get it to the publisher. And after it's accepted there's what? More work. But it's all good. My new novel's tentative title is Deceived. It may change, but then again it may stay the same. I have been very fortunate to have kept four titles which I gave my books. And the ones that were changed, I totally agreed with. That's a good publisher at work.
I'm also working on getting another novel to my publisher by this September. I'm having a ton of fun writing this book. It's a little different. And different is good, so "they" say.
And I'm also working on getting some novels ready for epublishing. I have had so many fans asking for more YA Time Travel, and guess what? I have two. I should know more about those books by fall. There's a huge learning curve for epublishing, and I want to give you the best product I possibly can.
I've also been working on a paranormal suspense series for epublishing. I'm excited about it. I wrote the main novel years ago. It was a finalist in St. Martin's Malice Domestic Contest. I will probably use a pseudonym for this series.
So that's what's been cooking on the writing burner in my office. Is it any wonder that I haven't had time to blog? I once read about a survey that asked fans if they would rather their favorite authors blog or write more books. Overwhelmingly they wanted more books. So, I've taken that to heart. I'm still going to blog, but not as often as I have in the past.
A LITTLE INSIGHT INTO MY LIFE . . .
I just watched two of my adult children head off to Comic Con and wished I could tag along. So many amazing celebrities are scheduled to be there, but I have work that needs to get done, and if I don't do it nothing happens. I wish my characters could write their own stories, but they just refuse to do anything without me. Hubby has gone bowling, so right now the house is quiet.
Don't you just love a quiet house?
Even Lizzie is asleep.
Poor little Lizzie. She will be fifteen this fall. She struggles now because she's pretty much blind and is hard of hearing. Here she is all snuggled up in her dog cave.
Next week (April 25-26) I'll be at the LDStorymakers Conference. It's always fun to see old friends and make new ones. I'll be there Friday and part of Saturday. They have awesome speakers scheduled. If you're attending and see me, I'd love for you to come say hi. This has happened in the past, and I'm always so very grateful.
Easter is this weekend. I love this time of year for it makes me reflect on the blessings in my life. One of those blessings are the people who visit my blog. Thank you.
And thanks to my readers who support me by reading and buying my novels. You're amazing and you'll never know how very much I appreciate you.
