It’s June. While the Northeast is cooking, it’s cold June in the Pacific Northwest, the coldest since they started keeping records in 1894! My tomatoes haven’t grown even a smidgen since I planted them a month ago. Nevertheless, summer is coming (we hope).
But I’m a writer, and everything writers do is for a project that won’t come to fruition for months or sometimes years ahead. So what did I work on this week?
Down Home Ever Lovin’ Mule Blues–to be released this fall from Highland Press. Not only did my editor and I work on the manuscript, but I’ve been working on the book video. And good news–my niece’s bf, who wrote the theme song for my book video, just signed a recording contract! Check out Justin Saragueta on myspace. He’s awesome. (So’s my niece!)
Faery Merry Christmas–yes, a Christmas novella featuring the faery princess and matchmaker, Keely.
Looking ahead to 2009:
I’m working on a pirate novella for Love on a Dead Man’s Chest with Cynthia Breeding and Deborah MacGillivray. Here’s a sneak peak at the cover:
And, of course, there’re the ongoing projects that I’m writing on spec. I really love these stories!
