Popping in

I've been quite busy these last few weeks. I wrapped up my time with my mother, who came up to Wisconsin for a 7-week stay with us (while she'd hoped to escape the oppressive Florida heat, the heat wave we had brought unusually high temperatures frequently above 90 degrees).  My husband and I attended his family's 40th reunion, held this year in St. Louis, and while there toured the family hometown of Crystal City, Missouri.  I did the happy dance upon the return of the rights to the remainder of my Arabesque titles, which I plan to re-release in eBook form.  And, of course, I've been writing, balancing two projects, one edging closer to completion and the other the most ambitious project I've ever tackled, with a structure still to be determined, with anticipated publication dates for this fall and next spring, respectively.

Here's a link to a sneak peek at my fall project, the title of which I will unveil with the cover at some future date.  It's fairly polished, although not as sparkling as it will be in the final version. Enjoy!

Congrats on your rights reversion. You've been busy but it sounds like you had a good time. And your new project sounds good too. Those of us who haven't been there might look askew as Racine, WI, much less North Dakota ;)

Thanks, Patricia! I know that using any Midwest setting north of Chicago might raise a few eyebrows, but I do plan to use it for both my current projects as well as several drafted projects as well, often with a tie-in to Mississippi. As for North Dakota, I'm winging that one completely!
