Mea Culpa and News

My apologies for the missing Writing Wednesday yesterday! (To paraphrase Jasper Fforde, one of my Wednesdays is missing.) Miss Gwen was in the midst of warding off bandits with a trunk full of billiard balls. As long as Miss Gwen behaves– and stops lobbing those billiard balls at me– we should have Writing Wednesday back as scheduled next week.

In the meantime, I have exciting news. This website is going to be undergoing a comprehensive overhaul. I’ve just seen the new look, and it is bee-yoo-tiful. I’m guessing that the updated site will go live within the next few weeks.

Also, stay tuned for a new contest coming up soon!

Now back to Miss Gwen….

    How are we supposed to wait a WHOLE YEAR for Miss Gwen with all the teasing you are doing? 🙂 I would pay to be a fly over your shoulder as you type right now.

    PS thanks again for the heads up re: the Georgette Heyer sale on Sourcebooks yesterday. I gorged and completed my library. woo-hoo!!

    Will there be a book about Tommy? Maybe something like Turnip’s book?

    Hi, Priyanka! Originally, Pink X was going to be Tommy and Kat Reid’s story– and then Miss Gwen took over. I’d still like to write Tommy and Kat’s story one of these days, but it may have to happen out of series order, like “Mistletoe”.

    AngelB, we’re down to less than a year now! Eleven months and three weeks. : )

    Much as I enjoy reading all your posts, and find the writing process very interesting, I am glad you missed the Wednesday item to write your book, instead of writing about writing !

    Love the Jasper Fforde shout out! If anyone is looking for something to read to pass the time until Ashford comes out, his Thursday Next and Nursery Crime books are fantastic!
