It’s been a wet summer here, which is welcome after two years of drought. Somehow, the wetness has spawned a bumper crop of rabbits competing for the produce in my garden. I’ve tried everything from marigolds to fox urine on one of my uninvited diners. He hasn’t read any of these gardening manuals about what chases rabbits away. I resorted to chasing the furry critter yelling, “Get out of here.” My ninety-pound dog chased me while I chased it. It would be a whole lot more helpful if he chased the bunny. The rabbit and I are a standoff. I’ll bring him food if he promises to stay in the front yard.
I’ve joined the Tuesday Tales group. For those who are unfamiliar with the group. A dozen or more writers share snippets of their developing stories based on a common theme every Tuesday. Eventually the snippets turn into a book. Check it out at Tuesday Tales. http://tuesdaytales1.blogspot.com/
As far as books go, Dangerous Curves released May 23rd. Incognito, a fun and sexy romance about mistaken identity is out in July. Seeking Shelter, a mainstream fiction novel about an abused woman escaping her abuser and building a new life, should be out at the end of August. I just received contract for Perfect Stranger, which is a Christmas tale that should be out in November.
The month of July is a busy one for me. I am editing three new books to pitch. Two are the start of two separate new series. I have a new romantic suspense series that features a mysterious, abrupt investigator who always happens to be on the scene when something fatal happens. I am thinking of calling the series, Always Watching.
The second series is a paranormal time travel that focuses on a contemporary family of witches. I am calling the series Pagan Eyes. There will be six books in all. The first one focuses on Leah who keeps slipping back in time, which tends to be unfortunate since in the past they kill witches. She has a task to complete to be able to return to the future. It is unfortunate no one told her exactly what she needed to do.
If you are wondering about Rose’s story from Escaping West, it’s in the works too. I am finishing a contemporary romance entitled The Soul Mate Search, and then it is on to Rose. My loving husband and soul mate is in the middle of editing that one. Yes, I am very fortunate to be married to a man who is great with websites and knows grammar. To think when we were dating, it never occurred to me to date someone who would be beneficial to my writing. I just thought he was cute, romantic and smart. Gotta love an intelligent man who opens car doors.
Authors remember I not only host book tours on Writer Wonderland, but authors’ promos and blogs too. Because it is open website as opposed to being restricted, excerpts have to stay in the PG range. http://writerwonderland.weebly.com/about.html. The best part is it is free.
See you in August.
