Update 04-08-2014 On My Latest Medieval Highlander Romance!

My manuscript is fully edited and now I will begin lining up the few beta readers who have requested to read the manuscript prior to publication. It is looking very good for a May release! So, so, so EXCITED!

I should be receiving the images from the photo shoot I ordered from Jimmy Thomas at Romance Novel Covers this week and then I can get the cover designer working on the cover. Yay! I can't wait for you guys to see the cover, either!

I've written a short "postquel", if you will (don't think this is actually a word) as a freebie, which 'stars' two characters from Robert's story, but whose complete HEA couldn't fit fully within the bounds of Robert's story. (They do have an HEA in the book, but it didn't seem as complete as it could have been, thus the "Postquel"). I will either offer it free here and at Smashwords (and maybe a few other places), or I will just tack it on to the back matter of Robert's story.  I'll decide that closer to publication.

Can't WAIT to share Robert's story with you!!

3/22/2014 Update on LATEST MEDIEVAL HIGHLANDER Story

Hi everyone!
Again, I will say I'm posting here on my blog so it goes out to those who follow me here but not on Facebook or my website.

I sent the latest draft of my manuscript to the new editor I was referred to by my previous one late yesterday. (My previous editor was unable to book a space for me until late July.) I haven't heard back from the new editor yet to find out when she expects to have her notes back to me, but I will keep you posted.

I'm very near to the time that I will be contacting those few beta readers I promised a read-through to over a year ago (o_O) to do a last run-through of the manuscript to find inconsistencies, plot holes, dropped threads, that I may have missed.

The cover image for Robert's story (and for the NEXT book--the one I haven't started writing yet), were shot last evening, so I'm hoping to see the photo proofs sometime in the next week or two. *Fingers Crossed*And then I can send the image off to my cover artist! Are you as excited as I am? I am DYING to toast this with some Champagne, or some chocolate--or BOTH!--but both those things trigger migraines, so I'll have to settle for toasting with a diet 7-UP and an Atkins Cranberry Almond Bar. (Doesn't quite have the same zip to it, does it, LOL!)

Can't WAIT to share this story with you!!

UPDATE on Estimated Release Date for My Next HIGHLANDER ROMANCE!

 March 15, 2014

Just a quick update: I am nearly through with my revisions/edits and should be ready to send it to my editor by Monday (so EXCITED!).

However, I am at the mercy of her schedule, and I may have to get in line for a month or two before she can work on it. I will post here when I find out for sure.

Also, I am having a custom cover image shot for the book cover, and that will take at least 2-4 weeks to receive, then I must have the photo made into a book cover (and, again, I am at the mercy of the cover designer's schedule as well).

My best ESTIMATE for release of this book is May of this year, "Lord willing, and the creek don't rise."

In the meantime, I will look for another sneak peek to post on my Facebook author page, but don't look for that until sometime next week.

Here's wishing you and yours all the best!

(Note: This has also been posted on my website, but for efficiency's sake, I have posted here as well, for those that don't get over there often, but follow my blog. This also feeds to my FB page, and etc.)

It's Done! It's Done! It's Done! My Fourth Highlands Romance Has Been Written!

Jumping up and down! (See Rocky pumping his fists at the end of this YouTube---That's exactly how I feel!) So HAPPY!

Now, I'll be digging into the edits and revisions. Happy Dance!  I have no idea how long this will take, but let's keep our fingers crossed that I can get it ready for the editor to see within the next few weeks (and let's also keep our fingers crossed that the editor has a slot open soon to look at it!)

For those who don't know: I've put a couple of teasers on my FB page, FYI. ;-)

Fourth HIghlands Romance Nearly Completed!

Hello Everyone!

Just wanted to give you an update, if you follow my blog, but don't visit my website or FB page often. I am down to only needing maybe a paragraph to finish Robert's story (although, technically, it's really the heroine's story)! The last paragraph is going to require some research, otherwise, I would have written it already, I promise!!! Also, I ended up needing to do quite a bit of research for what I wanted to do in the epilogue in general, which is why I haven't updated actual word-writing numbers the last few days. (Plus, I was on a trip back to my hometown to clear out some of my things and other memorabilia from my childhood home after my mother's passing last month). In the meantime, I've put a couple of teasers on that FB page as well, FYI. ;-) 

After I finish writing the story, it will be going through some intensive edits (meaning I'm perfecting, polishing, finding flaws, as opposed to extensive, meaning cutting out chunks and rewriting a lot---I do that as I go along, which is why it takes me so long to get a book finished, LOL!), which will take some time (but hopefully not TOO much!). It all depends on what my editor finds. I will definitely keep you posted on my progress as I go along.

As I've said before, the story is so much fun! Very sexy, with plenty of evil-doers and love-complications thrown in.  And Robert is such a guy! He tickles me. I cannot WAIT to share the story. Lots of plot twists and supporting characters to round it all out (as I'm sure those of you who are familiar with my previous Highlander books are familiar with--and possibly even counting on!) Please send me some positive vibes, as I can always use them!! 

Here's my current word count:    

 Wishing you and yours all the best,

Wednesday, January 1, 2014


I hope everyone had a splendiferous and safe New Year's Eve. I took a moment out of my writing schedule to wish everyone well today, and for this coming year. Later today, I'll be making black-eyed peas, mustard greens, and corn bread. Yum! Can't wait.

Sending everyone loads of virtual hugs!
