I haven’t updated my readers on what’s coming in a long time. And for good reason. I’ve been getting a lot of ducks in order first. But I’m thrilled to say, I’ve taken some serious steps over the past few weeks that are propelling my writing forward and bringing new things to you (and me!).
First off, I gotta tell you that working the whole book-writing and book-marketing thing is not easy. It takes up every bit of my free time (of which there isn’t much, so I have to get uber-creative in managing my hours), and it often gives me a headache. But, and this is a big but (omg, did that sound funny only to me?), when I check off some of the major items on my book release to-do list, I get freaking ecstatic. Talk about a relief and an incredible sense of satisfaction.
I just sent in covers and blurbs and review copy for two book tours that will start in May and end in late June. Yeah, I know. The pace is going to drive me c-r-a-z-y (30 stops over 6 weeks–YIKES!) and that means I’ll be meditating more than just once a day to keep my focus and my sanity. I’ll be exhausted when all is said and done but it’ll totally be worth it. Lots of giveaways planned, and hopefully new readers to be found who will love my characters as much as I do.
I also just sent in copy for paperback covers to be created, so that my books will be available for e-readers as well as folks who prefer to hold paper and binding in their hands. My cover artist is a genius, and so totally gets what my stories are about and I can’t wait to share them with you! I’m bursting, knowing that it’s not time yet, but I promise you’ll see them when it’s right. I think they’re abso-freaking-lutely amazing.
I’m also working on Book 3 of the Past Life Series. This one is writing itself, for the most part, and I’m so totally digging how my characters are challenging each other and me. New twists and turns, new insights into David and Lottie’s past lives, new challenges, and new, nasty enemies–one of which I didn’t see coming!
Hot damn, I LOVE writing.
Okay, so that’s it. Yeah, I know that this week’s blog wasn’t long but I just had to share my news. Old stories finding new life; new stories being born. So many things to come, and I’m grateful to be able to share it with you, my readers.

So excited great things are happening for you.
Thank you, Lola!
I don’t know how you do it. Writing that is. I can’t ever seem to put two words together where I sound educated to entice readers. Congrats to you on your accomplishments.
LOL — Sometimes I’m not sure how I do it either! Because there are days I can’t even string two words together to TALK.
Terri, your enthusiasm is infectious. I’m pretty excited too — I’m going to self-pub for the first time soon, probably in April. It’s a novella in the Bayou Gavotte series — actually a prequel — and I think it will be called Back to Bite You. 🙂
Barbara, I gotta know when you release. The title alone grabbed me and now I HAVE TO READ.
LOL. Thanks, Terri. Believe me, I will make announcements when the time comes.
