So much to share, so little time. Last week I attended and was part of an amazing wedding. More on that later...

Nia, though an energetic pain in the butt, is worming her way into our hearts. More on her later...

My newest story, INTO THE WILD, is a complicated joy to write. More on that... uh, yeah... later.

I've spent the past two days preparing for the Romantic Times Convention. I leave for Orlando, FA tonight after work. Still not ready. Hence the rushed post and all those 'laters'. I'll try to check in throughout the week instead of just my normal Tuesday. Please check back... you guessed it.... Later!

Meet Nia

I missed Topical Tuesday, so we'll call this Whirlwind Wednesday. I'm up in NY for a family wedding. Will be here for the next couple of days. A joyous event although I wish the weather were a little nicer. Gloomy and COLD. It's Spring for goodness sake! In between festivities, I'm working on the new book and also preparing for the Romantic Times Convention--or at least trying. More on that next week!
In other news, in a moment of insanity, mostly mine, Steve and I adopted a new puppy from our local Humane Society. She's, approximately 7 mths, super sweet, but also a bundle of energy. She needs a lot of attention and training. On the upside, she's quite smart and attentive. It's a bit of an adjustment for everyone (she tends to drive Cheyenne, our other dog, and Sadie, our cat, a bit batty at times) but it's getting easier every day. We still miss Billie terribly, but we're grateful for the joy our new fur-kid brings into our lives.
Gotta run for now, …

Call Me Taz

Publication schedules are funny things. Evie Ever Aftercame out just last month. I turned in Out of Eden, a Spring 2010 release, last week. And last night I started writing Into the Wild, my Fall 2010 release. On top of that, my brain is spinning on what stories to propose next. As you can see, publishing companies work pretty far into the future, so I need to submit some ideas ASAP for 2011. I'm beginning to feel like the the Tasmanian Devil.
In order to make my next deadline, which is zooming up fast, I'm going to try something new--commiting to so many pages per day six days a week. I officially started last night...and I'm already two pages behind. Gak! However, that was because it took me so flipping long to find the right beginning. Although today I thought of a better beginning. Which I'm off to write now. Have a great week everyone!
