Hello, everyone! Thought I’d catch you up with what’s been going on with me. I’ve been sort of blog silent except for my regular memes (HHD and SSS) and the current blog hops and some guest blogs. But I haven’t been putting up any of my own posts. Sorry about that.
Truth is, up until the last few days I’ve been working non-stop on edits on two historical novels. I just sent the second one, As Long As You’re Mine, off to its editor this morning! Hooray! The first one, Only Marriage Will Do, is with beta readers. Also hooray!
Today, I’m starting on the last of my projects–revisions to my medieval historical Time Enough To Love, Book 1: Betrothal. I’m going to push to get it done by late Sunday, as my school starts back up on Monday. Wish me luck! I’m hoping to self-publish Betrothal by late January.
After I finish that one, I’m on to working on the other two books: Book 2: Betrayal and Book 3: Beleaguered. They’re written but need a good bit of revision. Once each one is completed, it will be released, approximately six weeks after the last one. Really wish me luck on that one!
Today also marks the beginning of my latest blog tour for my most recent release, 7 Days of Seduction. My first stop is an interview at Sizzling Hot Books. I hope I’ve answered the questions in such a way that you get an idea of me and of my sizzling little book. 🙂 The rest of the tour–interviews, guest blogs, and a spotlight–can be found on the BLOG TOUR page above. If you want to join me on the tour, you’ll get a little reward. I’m giving away copies of 7 Days of Seduction and Seduction Swag Packs at each stop. The swag packs include a couple of “naughty” items inspired by the book.
I also have very exciting news! Only Scandal Will Do was nominated as Best Historical Romance in the Sizzling Hot PR Awards! Squeeeeeeee! I’ve never been nominated for an award for writing before, so this was a totally fantastic discovery. I’d like to ask you all to vote for me and Scandal in the Historical Category, and while you’re voting, check out the other nominees in the various categories and vote for the ones you’ve read. I’d sure appreciate it. 🙂
Other than my blog tour and my regular posts, I’m going to try to publish one post each week that is writing or reading oriented. I’ve got several topics I’d love to explore, several experiences to share, and some questions I’d love to get opinions on. So that’s my New Year’s Resolution–at least one meaty blog post per week.
Except for those, I may be rather quiet. I’m trying to fulfill another resolution: publish at least eight novels or novellas in 2013. Crazy? Maybe. Three are in revision right now. Two more are written, just awaiting revision. And I’ve got two more with outlines written and one with a mental outline almost complete.
So if the blog is quiet, you’ll know my fingers are flying! Do you have any New Year’s resolutions for 2013?
