Edinburgh Video

Tonight dh and I watched a video of Old Town Edinburgh. It was narrated by a ‘ghost’. The cool thing about this video was that it explained the history of Old Town Edinburgh while showing you the modern city. For those of you who have never made it to Scotland, this will give you a wonderful look at the city of Edinburgh during festival. Of course it’s just made me miss Scotland.

The Highs and Lows of Writing

Over the past few days, okay let’s make it a week, I’ve been in a lull when it comes to writing. I can attribute this to various causes, mainly not being able to get my single titles together in a manner that I’d be pleased with. So I’ve done a few laps in my pity pool without the assist of water wings. My skin is now pruned enough for me to want out of the water. I’ve decided it’s best to finish the novella partial I was working on before the funk hit and then start a new project. So I’m off to do just that.

Bombshell Chat

Wow! I attended the Bombshell chat tonight and ended up winning a book. You gotta love that. I will have to get the transcripts so I can see what questions were asked of the authors and editors. I’m truly curious where they’re planning to take the line. I’m also looking forward to the new romance line from Tor.

Today is my niece’s 14th birthday!

I’m still trying to digest this knowledge and get the picture of her running around in diapers out of my mind. Gosh, I feel old.

I remember fourteen so vividly. It was such a year of extreme highs and extreme lows. Of course at that age, there is nothing in between. That was the year I met the boy who would eventually break my heart into a million pieces. Man, I was crazy about him. Oh, fourteen…LOL! We later became good friends. It reminds me of that song ‘Strawberry Wine’.

I hope my niece enjoys this age and appreciates it as much as any kid can. Happy Birthday, E!

Once More Into the Mail…

I’ve made the changes my agent suggested to my contemporary cowboy novella, so it’s back into the mail it goes tomorrow. Fingers, toes, and eyes crossed it’s met with open arms or better yet, open pocketbooks. Next I’m going to finish a chapter and a half for a contemporary novel that’s tone is much like ‘Sex in the City’. Move over Samantha, Lucy’s on her way.

I’m so excited.

I received the backcover blurb to ‘Bad Boys Over Easy’ today. I must say it’s wonderful. The lovely woman at Kensington has outdone herself this time around. I cannot wait to see this book on the shelves. It seems like such a long time to wait, but I know the time will fly.

On another note, you should check out Alison Kent’s new site. She’s updated it and added a bunch of fun links. You can find the site at Also check out Sasha White’s Diary/Blog. She’s fun and brutally honest. It’s terrific and quite refreshing. You can find her site at
