A Favor

As you may, or may not, know, I'm a big fan of Maks on Dancing with the Stars. If you're so inclined, would you please go here here and vote for him. There are 24 days left, and you can vote every 20 minutes! He's currently in 4th place.

Thanks bunches!

I have to go to jury duty tomorrow. I have to say, I'm not too thrilled by the idea. I know people who are NEVER CALLED, yet I get called every year or two.
One time, when one of the lawyers was interviewing me, he asked what I did for a living. I told him I wrote historial romance novels, and he asked me if I knew the difference between reality and fiction. I so wanted to say, is this reality? But I didn't have the nerve!

Looks like rain here in sunny Southern California. We can always use more!

Hope all is well with you and yours and that the world is treating you kindly.

Speaking of New Covers

I'd no sooner finished writing the last blog when, lo and behold, the new cover arrived in the mail. I love it. What do you think?

Happy Spring

Well, here we are in April, and it's off to an interesting start.

There was a 7.2 earthquake on Easter Sunday. I'm happy to say I didn't know anything about it until it was over!

And the day after the earthquake, we have rain in sunny Southern California. Of course, rain is always welcome.

I'm awaiting the arrival of cover proofs for my October book, EVERLASTING DESIRE. It's always exciting to see a new cover!

I started a new story, which may become a book, or just another unfinished story on my computer, of which there are many. I can write beginnings all day long. Endings are easy. It's filling up those pages in the middle that come hard!

Hope all is well in your corner of the world.
