Wow. September is here, kids are going back to school, leaves are falling off trees. For me, September always feels like it's time to sharpen pencils and buy new jeans. I did, in fact, buy new jeans yesterday, my subconscious back to school wardrobe. I've got lots of exciting news. First, I'm thrilled to be a finalist in the Kindle Book Review 2013 Indie Book Awards for The Christmas Grandma Ran Away from Home. If you're looking for a fun, fairly short read, it's getting great reviews. Dawn at KBR was one of the early and strongest supporters of this story. Thanks, Dawn! Second, I'm thrilled (wow, I really need to think up more superlatives, enough already with the thrilled.) Okay, I'm delighted that I will be writing a Cosmo Red Hot Read through their partnership with Harlequin. My story comes out in February and is, of course, a Valentine's fantasy. Complete with chocolate, I'll say no more 😉 Details closer to the time.
