Yippee! It's finally spring. The intrepid Canadian geese have returned to the land of ten thousand lakes, foals are being born here on the farm, and Under Your Spell, my first Witches of Mayfair novel, will be released at the end of May--just in time for warm weather reading.
Earlier in the year, when I was certain winter would never admit defeat, I spent two weeks on an eco adventure in Costa Rica with Travis. We camped on the beach, howled at the monkeys, and climbed to the top of Mt. Cherripo. Feeling my heart try to pound its way through my rib cage was so exhilarating I decided to go with Chrissy's 'why the h*** not' philosophy and climb Mt. Whitney with my kids this coming summer. And since I'll be in California, I'm also going to attend the RWA conference. So, if you happen to be in the area on July 30th, drop by the world's most ridiculously large author signing at the San Francisco Marriot and get yourself some autographed romance novels to spice up your summer.
I'll be doing a bunch of signings in the upper Midwest, too. If you're interested, please check my website for dates. I love to see friendly faces. If you buy a book, even unfriendly faces are welcome.
And keep an eye out for my second Witches of Mayfair romance, my fifth Chrissy McMullen mystery, and a fun faerie anthology with Mary Janice Davidson, Leandra Logan, and Michele Hauf. Unless things go awry, all three novels should be released early in 2009.
Until then, I'd love to hear from you. My website has a fresh new look so please pop in, take a look around, and enter a contest or two. I'll be giving away some fun (and fattening) prizes in conjunction with the release of Spell.
It's been great meeting so many readers, booksellers, and librarians at stores and conventions recently. Some of you are crazy. (You know who you are.) Some of you are kindred spirits. (Probably the same people.) All of you are fantastic. I can't thank you enough for your support.
