I've sold another book to The Wild Rose Press!

This one is called A Hot Time in Texas and its a sizzling romance about a chef and a banker who are completely ill-suited to one another, but can't keep their hands off each other in the middle of a steamy Texas summer. Fortune tellers, county fairs, restaurant re-dos, and a Barney Fife-styled Sheriff keep things stirred up as the temperature rises.

So we're off again to follow the adventures of my book from sale to store!

It's Write-Off Time!

Writing, writing, writing. At least that's what I'm supposed to be doing. Yesterday was the first day of the DARA (Dallas Area Romance Authors) Write-Off. The idea is to set a goal (mine is five pages a day) and make or break that goal. Last time I beat my goal by 142% and came in third. But this time, I'm off to a slow start since I didn't write anything eysterday at all. Which means I have to write 10 pages today. YIKES!

So why am I sitting here talking to you? Procrastination, baby is the name of the game.

I'll start writing now. But maybe I should check email first.

Excitement and Disappointment and Waiting, oh my!

So I just got the release date for A Different Drum. May 29, 2009!!!

Okay, so that's a lot farther away that I had thought it would be, but the good news is that there is a great reason for the delay. The Wild Rose Press is now publishing the print version of each book at the same time as the online version, so I will be able to promote both the online version and the paperback together, which will give me more bang for my promotional buck and reach readers who prefer a prtinted book at the same time and with the same enthsiasm as the online version.

Plus, it gives me about 6 1/2 months to get my marketing plan finalized and ready.

That's a WIN WIN for me, the book and the publisher.
