There has been a lot of good stuff happening around the web lately, so I thought I’d take a moment to share. And because I can’t find anything else that interesting to blog about with regards to my life. I’m still pregnant and 33 weeks along as of Monday. Tuesday is my OB appointment. Saturday is my childbirthing class. My baby shower has been moved to Halloween. Woohoo! 😈
Um… Well, like I said. Nothing that interesting. Oh, and I’m lovin’ Lovin’ LOVIN’ my YA paranormal. Got some serious revision time down on this thing. Oh, and one more thing. Have I told you guys how much I love fan mail and how my books are getting around by word of mouth? Oh, man, do I love this writing thing. 🙂
Okay, so like the news…
First, my heartfelt condolences to Kate Duffy’s family, friends, and authors. In case you haven’t heard by now, she died last Sunday of cancer. She’s edited some NY Times bestselling authors while at Kensington, so I know she’ll be sorely missed. One thing that always struck me about her is she’s a tell-it-like-it-is type of person and never afraid of the backlash it might cause. I loved that about her.
Second, I don’t know if you guys remember my friend Kalayna Price from ConCarolinas, but her golden goose has landed, baby. Not only did she sign on with Lucienne Diver of The Knight Agency, but about two weeks later, she landed her first NY contract with Ace/Roc. Way to go, girlfriend. I’m so happy for you. 😀
Third, I’m still waiting for my girl Nicki to confirm, but she won the Maggie for best single title. A huge CONGRATS to her. I met Nicki at my first Moonlight and Magnolias and she’s a trip to hang out with. I only wish I had gotten to spend more time with her.
Since I love giving people a leg up, my buddy Harry has also started a new blog and he has a great intro describing his passion for writing. Check it out at: http://throughaforestofideas.blogspot.com/.
My girl, Jax Cassidy has redesigned the Romance Diva’s website and blog, so make sure you check those out. There’s a reason why I think she’s Ms. Design Extraordinaire. Just scroll down on the homepage and check out that pretty STRIPPED cover, if you don’t believe me.
And before I forget, my girl Ryshia Kennie has a new book coming out this month, so I’m sure she’s both excited and nervous. But more about that later. I’m planning something special for her release.
Other than several friends of mine getting back into the writing groove, that’s all I have to report. Perhaps it has something to do with the phases of the moon. 😉
Any good news you guys want to share? I’d love to hear it.
