I’ve moved from my long-time home in New York’s Hudson Valley to the coast of Florida. My driver’s license makes it official. In the heat of July, I am enjoying writing indoors and find myself developing new routines.
I’ve been swimming first thing in the morning and then getting to my office to write. In the evenings, I walk the beach. The Skimmer birds and the Terns are raising their young near the sea grass and I enjoy the raucousness of their parenting. Those babies are always hungry.
I think the climate agrees with me. I got my proposal in early for book #3 in the Harlequin Intrigue series APACHE PROTECTORS: TRIBAL THUNDER. And I’m hoping to have the draft for that story completed this week.
The copy edits for book #2 EAGLE DANCER are done and so are the final edits for book #1 TURQUOISE GUARDIANS. Those stories arrive in January and February 2017.
I’m turning my attention to my September release, a Western historical, THE WARRIOR’S CAPTIVE BRIDE. My editor is encouraging me to enter this one in the Rita Awards from Romance Writers of America. That’s good feedback. I’m looking forward to the September 1 release and hearing from my readers if they agree.
