Spring is at last here. Posies are popping up out of the ground, the birds are singing and I have Spring fever, which makes it very hard to sit still and type. But my current hero, Mr. GQ, is quite charming and very sexy. Once I start writing his story, I’m very eager to learn more about him and to figure out how he’s going to get his HEA.
Speaking of Mr. GQ, I heard back from my editor on my formal proposal for his story, book #3, and the feedback is positive. Yay! But there’s still more road to go before this is a done deal. A book isn’t done/sold until it’s all written, rewritten and accepted. So this story has a ways to go until I can say that it’s a sure thing. But so far…so good.
I also got my AA’s (author alliterations) for SNOWBOUND WITH THE SOLDIER, book #2. I hadn’t read this book in a few months so it was great to go back and visit those characters again. I fell in love with the hero all over again and was so happy to watch them reach their hard-won HEA.
When I wasn’t working on my new story, I was building my NEW website which includes my first ever blog, Hearts & Scribbles. This is where I plan to do something I’ve never done before..I’m going to maintain my own personal blog hopefully on a consistent basis. I’m going to start with slice-of-life posts including Monday Mayhem, Weigh-in Wednesday and My Friday Reads. And if I’m out and about in cyberland, I’ll leave breadcrumbs so you can find me. I hope to keep the posts entertaining and less about writing. If you ever want to come visit me on Hearts & Scribbles, give me a holler and we’ll work out the details.
And the biggest moment of all was getting my very first cover for RANCHER TO THE RESCUE. I love it!!! My wonderful editor and the Harlequin Art Department did a fantastic job. My hat is off to them. The cover models really do look like my hero and heroine. I just love when that happens. Just makes the story that much more enjoyable.
NEWS: When I received my July cover, they included the inside cover images. And guess what? Harlequin Romance is getting a makeover with a totally NEW cover design! They are beautiful. Very contemporary. Very appealing. And with the new shift in editorial, this look should work perfectly. Wait until you seem them. Great!
I also did something fun this month, I picked out my first ever swag. In all honesty, it was a little stressful as far as trying to pick out the right quantities and not go broke. I saw some really cute stuff, but you had to buy in very large bulk and that made the price a little rich for this newbie. But I hope people will like what I picked out.
And that pretty much sums up my month. Now it’s your turn, does anyone have any other questions for me?
