Shout and some little tidbits
Friday, August 21st, 2009

The end of summer always brings up a feeling of sadness and longing in me, probably left over from kid-dom from when I clung onto those last lovely freedom-filled days before going back to the structure of the schoolyear.

I had a very nice summer, though. You?

Just a couple annnouncements:

Snippet Saturday tomorrow–the theme is settings, so stop by here, read my tropical, sensual setting scene from my upcoming Berkley Heat book, Paradise Rules, and then click on links to read setting scenes from dozens of other terrific authors.

Lanikai Beach--where heaven meets the sea--one of my settings in Paradise Rules

Lanikai Beach--where heaven meets the sea--one of my settings in Paradise Rules

Wicked Burn is on the bargain list at Amazon! Buy it now here in paperback, new for $6.00. That’s a deal!

The summer was pretty fruitful as far as writing goes. I finished several proposals and am waiting to hear–gnawing my nails away in the meantime. (Just kidding, I don’t bite my nails. Internally I am, though–lol) I just submitted a proposal for an emotionally intense, family-focused romance to my agent–the first non-erotic I’ve written with the NY market in mind. We’ll have to see.

Meanwhile, mentally my fingernails are turning into stubs.

How do you rate your summer of 2009?

    That picture is beautiful!

    Summer went by too fast. My two older boys are back to school, my youngest son will be going to preschool in about 2 weeks, and that will leave just my daughter and I. As much as they drive me crazy at times, it is so quiet without them around the house.

    Have a fun weekend!

    My summer of 2009? Very busy… But thats okay.

    It’s been a crazy busy summer but it was a good stuff. Best wishes on those future books. We’re waiting as impatiently as you are.

    Hi Beth,
    Sweet Restraint and Wicked Burn the hottest books I’ve read in a long time. We met at the book signing in Palos Heights where I got your books with Julie James. Thank you so very much. The girls and I always said books were good or very good but yours are above and beyond any classification. My daughter let some of the girls at S&H case managers read them. It’s a wonder any of the pages are left. Sorry it took so long to comment. Keep up the great writing and I have to go shopping for some more of your books. Thank you again.
