June! Here in the Deep South,
summer heat is already a way of life and
the pollen and mold spores are filling
the air. I've found it easier to
drive with the top down on my car if I
keep the air blasting--just love the
sunshine and my hair blowing in the
wind! Of course, with the
humidity, I sometimes end up looking
like Don King on a bad hair day.
news! I accepted contracts with
Kensington for four more books for their
Aphrodisia line! Woo-hoo!
They are for two full-length, single
title novels and two novellas. My
current work in progress, HIP DEEP,
will be the first single title book.
I've been invited to participate in a
so novella #1 will be a Christmas story. Book #2 is a
total mystery--any ideas? I
imagine novella #2 will be whatever
anthology Kensington decides to do.
I'll keep you posted.
My editor contacted me a couple of
weeks ago and said
GIVE ME MORE (the book formerly
known as ALL THAT GLITTERS) was
in great shape--no revisions! He
called it hot, hot, hot! That
always thrills me. He also said my
firefighter novella, ALL FIRED UP
THE FIREFIGHTER anthology) was
in great shape--no revisions again!
Further stroking my ego, he told me
ALL FIRED UP was his favorite of the
books of mine he'd read so far.
Can't get any better than that--well,
maybe if I made the NYT
Bestseller list--but I am happy with
where my career is going and am striving
to enjoy this moment...NYT will
come to me eventually. I hope.
I'm anxiously awaiting cover flats
for my February firefighter book as well
as the author copies for
If things go as they did for
BEACH, I should be getting
something any day now and will post the
THE FIREFIGHTER anthology as
soon as it arrives.
Have a safe, happy, and HOT summer!
