Coffee Talk and Gearing Up for Daring Time
Thursday, March 12th, 2009

Hi All!

Sorry I’ve been so negligent. Very busy trying to finish my Berkley Heat book called Release. I’m nearing the home stretch, and things are getting a bit easier now. πŸ™‚

This Monday I met at the Michigan Avenue Borders with Stacy of Stacy’s Place on Earth and author Julie James. Stacy has pics if you want to have a peek. We had a ton of fun gabbing about books. Stacy’s quite the expert, so I got tons of good ideas on who to buy so that I can be more romance savvy. (Between writing and the other job, I need guidance as far as what to read in my limited time.) I had a great, relaxing time.

Frauke, who is my fabulous web designer, just made me the graphic for my Daring Time contest, which will start the first week in April! It’s so purty. I’m getting very excited for Daring Time to release. I’ll be giving away a BOOK A DAY until release day, PLUS two fabulous prize packs.

Also, RT is coming up next month! I can’t believe it. Anyone else going?

    Hi Beth!

    It’s so great to be able to put a “face to the author”. Looks like both you and Julie James were enjoying a great time!

    I can’t wait to see the graphic for your “Daring Time” contest. I hope you are getting great early feedback for your wonderful story.

    Warm Regards
    L πŸ˜€

    Hi Lea! I feel like I haven’t ‘spoken’ to you in so long. I can’t wait to finish this book and re-enter the land of the living. πŸ˜€

    We really did have a super time. You’re right. It’s always nice to put a name with a face.

    So what’s happening with you?

    Believe it or not I’m reading and reviewing ARC’s. I’ve got them lined up! lol

    I’m not complaining because two of them are for Larissa Ione and Jaci Burton and I love both their writing.

    There are two others from authors that I haven’t read before so I always worry that I won’t like the book. (Well, one is co-authored by Lauren Dane and I’ve read and like her).

    But, hopefully all will be well.

    Other than that, just keeping busy with the day job and life!

    Last time we chatted you were struggling with a little writers block. I hope you have gotten through that.

    I’m looking forward to reading “Flirting”, soon.

    Nice that you’re getting all those great ARC’s! Hope they are all terrific.

    I have moved past my block, thanks. Things are smoothing out a bit. My deadline is April 15, so I’m actually a bit ahead of schedule at this point. Phew.

    Expert? Ha! But thanx for the vote of confidence πŸ˜€

    It was a fun time. Can’t wait for another chance to get together and talk books. Good luck with your deadline.
