I keep complaining that I’m so busy these days, but really who isn’t in December? My sister is in the middle of moving so I know she has it worse than me. Last night I spent a long time cleaning up for the cleaning lady, moving all the boxes and wrapping paper and such. I haven’t decorated for Christmas yet. I hope to get that done next weekend. Since LJ and Collin will be coming in early January we leave our decorations up a little longer than some.
There is one thing that has kept me very happily busy – I sent my first non-Cassie book to Blushing Books late last month. I was hoping that it would be accepted and published by February. It seems that things have happened much faster than I anticipated. The book was accepted, and it will be out a few days after Christmas! Sweet Ella helped me with edits early on and Blushing Books assigned me a new editor through them. She is a lovely lady from Australia and being sixteen hours different worked out pretty well over all. I really enjoy working with her, though it seemed fast and furious for a few days.
I’m a little nervous to begin this new series – but I have begun to get very close to these folks too. Don’t think for one moment that I’m giving up on Cassie, for one thing she would never allow it! Add to that the fact that she is one of my best friends. So there will be more Cassie books, but I hope you’ll love the new series too. The new book is Cal’s Law. Title suggested by Ella! I’ll be telling you much more about it soon. The edits are all done and now I’m waiting to see the cover. That’s always exciting and definitely nerve racking!
So if you get any Amazon cards for Christmas and you’ll still have time off… well the book should be out by the twenty-eighth of December. I’m going to need some mental handholding.
