The other good news is that the publication date got moved up from January to December! So here’s the skinny: BEER AND GROPING IN LAS VEGAS A contemporary […]

I got an agent!! No joke.

I can finally announce the news officially that I’ve been hinting about in posts. I GOT AN AGENT! The news became official while I was out of town for Georgia’s Moonlight & Magnolia Conference so I could only announce my good news on my social networks. For some reason it won’t feel really official until […]

Make Sure Your Curtains Match the Drapes–Why Your Query’s Tone Matters

As some of you know, I’ve started the query phase again for MUST LOVE BREECHES. I don’t want to get too detailed about this for obvious reasons, but I did want to provide an update and a cautionary tale. Some of you know I queried in the spring. I did a short burst to a […]

I’m a contracted author!

I’m so very excited to announce that I just signed my first writing contract! It’s for BEER AND GROPING IN LAS VEGAS, a 13K word novelette, due out in January 2013 by Secret Cravings Publishing!

My Fast Draft Experience

Whoa! Hello World! I feel like I’m waking from a two-week stupor. Monday, May 14 I started Candace Havens’ Fast Drafting class where we committed to a certain number of pages for a 2-week period, the goal being to finish your first rough draft as fast as possible. If you need convincing on the soundness […]

Blog going into low-wattage mode

Hello, I just wanted to do a quick post to say that for the next two weeks, there won’t be my regular posts to the blog. You might have noticed there was no Monday Hunk Who Reads post today. I joined Candace Havens Fast Draft class at the last minute as a kick in the […]

What’s Been Up Lately With Me

I don’t do these often, but I thought I’d post about what’s going on. I WENT PRO! Oddly enough, Romance Writer’s of America (RWA) allows you to join their PRO ranks if you get a rejection! You have to prove that you are in the querying stage and also send them a copy of your […]

Yay, MLB is a finalist in the SARA Merritt contest!

For those that are already published, this would be no big deal, but this is my first foray into the writing world and so I’m super excited! Just got the email today that informed me that MUST LOVE BREECHES is a finalist (one of three) for the San Antonio Romance Writer’s Merritt Contest in the […]

Exciting News! I finaled in the Marlene Contest! (and a conference update)

I’ve been aggressively entering RWA Chapter contests since December, and so far I’ve gotten results back from two. The first one I got pretty dang close (by a few points), but just this Friday, as I’m checking into my hotel in New Orleans and calming myself to pitch to my first agent in a little […]

Polishing my Pitch for the FF&P Fantasy on the Bayou Conference this weekend

I’ve had a nervous stomach since last Wednesday when I realized this conference was only a little over a week away. Now it’s only a couple of days. Eeep! Been hitting the Chamomile Tea pretty hard to calm the ole stomach…. Reason I’m nervous? Not only is it my first writer’s conference, but I’ll be […]
