If not for a loyal reader bringing it to my attention that I haven’t posted for awhile, I would have let the whole summer pass by without checking in. Naughty, naughty me! Sorry folks. Between my kids, my family, writing, working, church and exercising my butt off, I hardly have a minute to myself. It’s all good though. Life is good. I can’t complain. Here’s a short recap of what your favorite romance writer around these parts has been doing:
(March) Handed in, ESCAPE TO PARADISE, (on-time thank you very much! I hate waking up at the crack of dawn, but it had to be done, and I am proud to say I made my deadline. I’m 10 for 10 now!!!)
(April) Submitted the proposal for book 11, tentatively titled, PASSION BY THE BOOK. The honeymoon’s over, the passion’s fizzled, and Simone and Marcus Young don’t know how to get their marriage back on track. But when Simone comes across a salacious relationship book that guarantees fast results, she scoops up a copy, and makes a beeline for the cash register. Marcus better watch out because his wife is on a mission–to romance and seduce!
(May) I celebrated my birthday. No party, no cake, no fan fare. Just a GREAT DAY spent with the people I love the most!
(June) Two more pieces of wonderful news: My proposal for, PASSION BY THE BOOK, is approved, AND my lovely editor sent me the new cover for, ESCAPE TO PARADISE. Do you LOVE it as much as I do?
(July) Our family welcomes two international students from Taiwan into our home. Over the weeks, we go for long walks, bake together, attend church, go shopping, to the movies, dance around the kitchen while I make dinner, go to the gym, check out Stampede, hang out on the deck listening to Adele (they love her just as much as I do! Yay!!!), and all in all have a fabulous time together. I don’t want them to go. We’re having too much fun. I am really going to miss them! 🙁
Now, I really have to go. We’re throwing a party for the kid’s birthday on Saturday, and I have much to do. I finalized the menu, but my daughter just told me I need to add some more of her favorite foods. Sheesh!
