I thought wrong.
For the present and unforeseeable future, I'll just say that I'll blog when I can. Best not to make any commitments. Just now every spare minute, every creative spark, every brain cell is going into a manuscript that's giving me fits. I guess every writer has an unruly child. This one is mine. And we only have so much time to work out our problems given my day job.
So. That's where I'm at.
In promo news: ROMANCING THE WEST officially hits shelves October 1! An excerpt and reviews forthcoming. Also in the pipeline and coming February 1, EVERYBODY LOVES EVIE. Pre-order now!
In the meantime, here are a couple of fun photos from my weekend in New Orleans at Heather Graham's Writing Conference. Forgive the skimpy narrative.
R) Me performing on stage at the Cat's Meow. I didn't know a lot of the songs on the provided song list. But I knew 'Me and Bobby McGee', a Janis Joplin standard that I use to sing regularly when I was performing for a living. It proved a good choice for the rowdy crowd. I actually have a poignant story about this moment, but no time to tell it. Later... hopefully sometime this year!
R) Authors Alexandra Sokoloff, me, F. Paul Wilson and Heather Graham. Yes, I know we look freaky! We'd just performed in a 'zombie' musical.
L) Author Mary Stella and I at the booksigning on Sunday.
R) Me in front of my favorite art gallery on Royal Street--totally devoted to 'The Blue Dog'.
Beautiful historic Jackson Square!
Sorry the pictures and captions are out of whack. I can't figure out how to fix them. Ah, well. You get the idea. I had a great time!
