Hard At Work

So I am hard at work on my final pass of my next manuscript! My goal is to have this last pass complete before the BIG birthday at the end of the month. Think I can make it? Hmmm...probably with some solid effort. Of course there are still children to be taken care of, laundry to be washed, pitches to be honed and scripts to be written (and please God willing sold!) But I plug away hopeful and happy with this story. This is my first LOVE story. A contemporary romance. Yes, I've fallen back in love with the genre that was my first 'grown-up' reading as a child. I remember stealing so many of my Mother's books...books I am sure that I wasn't meant to read. But pilfering them nonetheless and LOVING these books. I also remember falling away from them as I grew older and had so many 'other' books to read. Now, I've fallen in love with these books again. I am just finished Kristan Higgins newest book Too Good To Be True. A great read. As per my usual, after reading a book I enjoyed I wanted to check out the author..and I can't find a web page! Is it possible that Kristan Higgins has no web page? Is this the case? I was shocked. Let me know dear readers if this is true.

Mark Your Calendars

So I am a big believer in community and the power of a community to effectuate great change. The power of the group being exponential instead of additive. And it's about time for the World to take another stand in the protection of our Mother.

Mark your calendars; March 28, 2009 8:30 pm. 60 minutes surrounding the globe.

Welcome Back

Hey ho! I'm back. I'd like to welcome myself back to my own blog, as well as hopefully all my kind and faithful readers. Yes, it seems I did take a sabbatical of sorts. Blame the holidays, sick children, finances, a spec script and a ton of other duties and obligations. And yet, I missed my blog fiercely. You'll note I didn't post much except for other authors with debut books. But now I am back...with a vengeance.

So what's new and what's up? Well let's see. Spec script? Still very much alive and out in the world. Fingers and toes crossed that it will sell and promise PROMISE that I will let you guys in on it just as soon as it does.

Number two...hmm..almost finished with a new manuscript. Almost. Doing a final pass before turning it into the most fabulous of literary agents; Miss Kristin Nelson. Then godspeed that it finds the right home.

Also...another script, in the works. You may or may not know that I love romantic comedies LOVE THEM. So am writing madly in that genre w/my writing partner Mike McCafferty. Right now we are working w/a fabulous producer on a great idea for a new romantic comedy...will share the news when I can.

Finally...hmmm...what else. Well, once I put the new adult manuscript to bed and have an excellent draft of the new script, then I am turning my focus to the rewrite of my first Young Adult book. So excited about this manuscript and its potential.

Wow, seems like I've got a ton of work to do... Guess I better get after it!
