Hey everyone!!!! It’s been a while. Sorry for my absence but life has had its way with me lately and blogging had to take a backseat. There are only so many hours in a day…which is a ridiculous flaw of nature in my opinion. I need at least 30 hours to get everything done.
Anyway…just wanted to announce that on Wednesday, my very talented friend Julie Anne Lindsey, (isn’t she a doll?) will be stopping by HERE to talk about her new book, Bloom. I first met Julie through Twitter and automatically wished I had even a fraction of her energy. The woman is a writing machine with a busy family life, something I can relate to. If you haven’t visited her blog Musings From the Slushpile, do so now. I promise you won’t leave without a smile. She’s absolutely adorable!
In other news, I am REALLY close to finishing The Awakening of Katherine Shaw. I feel like I’ve said that a thousand times, but if life will give me a break and allow me more than 5 seconds to write, I’ll be able to put this book behind me. I’m sure it will still need a little repair work here and there, but I have an amazing crit partner and talented beta readers to help me with that.
Secondly, I’ve come up with two ideas for future novels and oddly enough, both involve demon hunters. Where that came from, I’m not sure, but I like the way things are working out in my head.
Thirdly, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about trends in paranormal and fantasy. Where is it going? What will publishers look for next? What will make their eyes bulge in a frenzy and what will make them toss a manuscript aside like it has the plague? I know it’s really impossible to tell, but I like thinking about the possibilities; it makes the wheels turn and stirs creativity. I think I may do a little research into trends of the past.
So that’s where I’m at right now…come visit me and Julie on Wednesday!! We’d love to chat with you!
Here’s the blurb about Bloom from Amazon:
The debut novella in the Honey Creek Books series. (Sweet Romance)
In a town filled with her past, she never expected to find her future….
Seven years ago Cynthia left Honey Creek with a broken heart. Three years ago Mitchell arrived with one. Now Cynthia’s come home, and these two hardened hearts can’t stop arguing. If they’d only take a break long enough to find some common ground, they might be surprised to find love can grow anywhere.
If they let it, love will find a way to Bloom.
