I finished the following covers for my upcoming novels today: Midnight Rain I See You Last Girl Dancing Night Echoes Because of a bit of a financial bump, I’m pushing hard to get all the backlist up in the next couple of months. To my amazement (because I thought exactly the opposite), I think the suspense novels are going to … Continue reading →
Lots of my novels for free if you’ll pay the postage.
Jean is giving away a copy of I SEE YOU. I’m struggling with deadlines, a book that isn’t coming together the way I’d like, and my older son’s dying cat. Last few days have been rough. … Continue reading →

This never happens, so I’m hoping the fact that it did this time is a sign (no, make that SIGN) of good things to come. I’m still doing the HTCB manuscript slog. I’m reacquainting myself with the world at the same time, and … Continue reading →
The proposal for a possible next suspense novel went out to my agent about ten seconds ago. Took longer than I thought possible to finish the revision, but on the up side, I like it a lot, and I’d love to write the book. It deals with a different level of relationships than the previous novels, maintains the light paranormal … Continue reading →
2700 words, give or take a few. It has a good story; it is, I suspect, short on romance. I’ll go over it and see what I can do to beef up those elements. Argh. Stuff you don’t notice while you’re doing the first draft. Maybe I could do it as straight suspense ….. Hah.
