Hot off the Presses!


My friend, CP, and fellow RT cover girl Bella Andre's new HOT SHOTS series kicked off today with the release of WILD HEAT.  If you like sexy firefighters, lots of emotional intensity, and a touch of suspense you are going to love this book.  If you're at the bookstore I hope you'll give it a look.  

So what are you guys reading right now? I'm in a bit of a rut myself--nothing's grabbing me right now (wish I had Bella's book to read :)).

Spring Break--Not So Much

In the old days, I used to do things like go to Mazatlan for Spring Break.  But funny thing happens when you have school age kids.  All of the sudden those "holidays" I used to look forward to so much become a hassle.  These are the days that I wish I had an office to go to.  It's not that I don't love my kids, but negotiating squabbles all day long while trying to write a love scene can prove something of a challenge.  My son is now in middle school and has unfortunately outgrown the school child care so I'm stuck with trying to figure out things to keep them busy AND still try to get some work done.  Easier said than done.  Sigh.  Only six more days to go and back to school!

On a completely different subject, I thought you guys would enjoy a funny little exchange I had with my husband recently.  We were following the story of the American captain being held by the Somali pirates and I said, "Why don't they just send him some SEAL snipers and get rid of these guys."  My husband gave me a skeptical look and said, it would be too difficult (or something to that effect).  How vindicated was I when a few days later they did exactly that.  Everyone was quite amused when I mentioned, "See what you can learn from reading romance!"  LOL.  But wasn't that an amazing story?  

Have a great week...If I'm a little quite you'll know why.  (My kids have probably strung me up like a pinata).

Just a Quick Note...

Today I'm blogging over at magical musings today (Thursday).  It's a post about first loves that I had the idea for after a recent post I did here.  If you have time, stop by and check it out.

More Bubbly!

I've come down from the chandelier long enough to share my good news (but then it's right back up for more swinging!).  My editor called yesterday afternoon to let me know that HIGHLAND SCOUNDREL debuted on the New York Times extended list at #23!  It also hit the USA Today (#92) so I had the double whammy.  I'm absolutely thrilled.  Thanks to all of you who rushed out and bought the book--I truly appreciate your support.

My hubby took us out to celebrate last night, but I think we'll be doing something fun this weekend, too.  What about you guys...any fun weekend plans?  My kids aren't on Spring Break until the week after Easter, but it feels like we must be the only ones.
