We have winners! Congratulations to Kim, who won the $10 gift certificate (and made me drool with her talk of grilled peaches), and to Jenni and Kame, who won copies of Naughty & Nice. Thanks for commenting, everyone! Loved hearing about your memorable meals. Come back next week for another round.
Happy Friday, everyone! I’m writing a dinner scene this morning in a manuscript whose hero used to be a chef, and it’s making me so hungry. Time for breakfast, methinks.
There’s a lot happening behind the scenes for me his week — contracts nearly signed, book manuscripts swooping around digitally from one person to another. As of two days ago, I have five books “in production,” meaning that they’re either in or through copyediting and are being readied for sale. Three are novellas, and two are full-length novels (longer than my novels that are already out).
Yesterday, I saw cover concepts for my March release, Along Came Trouble, and all I can say is hot. Looking forward to sharing when I can!
My website has an updated home page and improved Books and Coming Next pages, and you’ll be seeing more updates on those pages as soon as I get a few contracts signed, as well as back-cover copy and cover images finalized for my releases in the first half of next year.
So, yes. It’s exciting around here, but all very secretive. And my stomach is grumbling for a bagel with peanut butter and honey (my breakfast of choice). Let’s get on with it, shall we?
For this week’s giveaway, tell me in the comments about a particularly memorable meal. I’ll choose a random winner tomorrow morning to get a $10 gift certificate to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or iTunes. Two runners up will receive a copy of Naughty and Nice, my Christmas anthology with Molly O’Keefe and Stefanie Sloane, as soon as it releases.
My memorable meal is a hunk of grocery-store pecorino, a baguette, an apple, and a sleeve of cookies that I shared with my husband in the middle of a hike on our honeymoon in Italy. Great picnic, with cheese and bread of the sort you just can’t buy in Green Bay!
