And we’re back!

Yay! I thought of all kinds of things to blog about while the blog was broken but, of course, I can’t remember them now. One minor note—you might notice a slight lag when you comment. Just be patient a couple of seconds and it’ll go through. (Unless it thinks you’re a spammer, of course. It happens sometimes. Poor Heather always goes to moderation every time she comments and I can’t figure out why.)

So what’s been going on during the brief down time?

My upcoming Carina Press release has a new title! The book formerly called JUST JOE will henceforth be known as EXCLUSIVELY YOURS! Pretty excited about that.

I’m multitasking projects:

Working on DG4. The big picture’s settled, but I need to figure out where the story actually takes place. And I’m really having some trouble figuring out where to start the story. From the villain’s POV? Isabellas? Jack’s? I’m not really seeing it. Did write a really fun scene in which Jack gets tased by a cop, though. Bzzzzt!

Also working on a proposal for the sequel to EXCLUSIVELY YOURS. Joe’s brother, Kevin, owns a sports bar and craziness, love and happily ever after ensue.

The opening line:

Every time the New England Patriots chalked one up in the win column, Kevin Kowalski got laid.

So back to work for me! Oh…right after I call the groomer. Poor Mini looks like something that fell out of a janitor’s mop bucket and dried in the sun. I think she’s got dreadlocks in her tail. Lucky groomer.

    Rae, you didn’t go to moderation! How weird is that? Cool, but weird timing! And thank you. Will catch up on that in a bit.

    Melissa, Exclusively Yours will release this summer. I don’t have an exact date yet, but I’m hoping for June. And here’s the first line of that one…

    “You got busy in the backseat of a ’78 Ford Granada with Joseph Kowalski—only the most reclusive bestselling author since J.D. Salinger—and you don’t think to tell me about it?”

    Once it’s been through edits, I’ll get the first chapter up. :smile:

    Oops. Keep forgetting if I copy from Word I get weird symbols instead of punctuation. Fixed now.

    Now to remember I still need to fix that all over the rest of the site.

    Love the title! Love the first line to Kevin’s story and hate that I get moderated. Sometimes I don’t post over here because of it. Sorry! I still love you. In fact, I love you so much that I gave you an award. :lol: Payback and all that.
