Finally - I'm blogging

Hi everyone. I'm sorry it has taken me so long to write. I've been incredibly busy lately and I'm working on my organization skills to keep up with it all!

Anyway, here's all that I've been up to lately.

My Writing....

I finished writing the long awaited Left in the Dark, Book Two in the Mind Bending Series. It's due to hit the shelves late October. I am very excited about it and so far, I'm hearing great things! I've still been busy with book signings for Afterthoughts and I look forward to having this one on the table as well. Something interesting has been happening that I didn't expect. The Mind Bending Series has been referred to as the Detective Paige Aldridge Series. In fact, I'm hearing that more and more. Everybody loves Paige! I've also started outlining Book Three and working on another trilogy that I'm tentatively calling The Thaumaturgy Trilogy. The research on this one has been most fun. I was recently signing books at GenCon in Indianapolis. What a great place to find cool stuff, meet fantastic people and draw inspiration. I'm looking forward to next year!

The Literary Lynnch Pen...

I am re-vamping The Literary Lynnch Pen for 2010 to include more helpful information like grammar tips and what I'm reading sections. I look forward to learning more myself in the process. Thank you to all who are subscribers. I would love to hear from you and see what you think.


On a personal note... my husband and I recently bought a new home on bank of the Ohio River. We are absolutely loving it. It's a wonderful writer's paradise! I can't wait to get to work.

I've been reading the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer and have really been enjoying them. I'm getting ready to start Eclipse and am looking forward to seeing New Moon in the theaters soon. I'm also looking forward to reading more from Blackwyrm Fiction. They really do have an interesting set of books out this year! I am very proud to be one of the authors in this impressive line up.

I've been trying to catch some movies over the summer. I actually made it to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince three times; once was the 3D version. Even though the 3D graphics were amazing, I was disappointed that it was only such a small part of the movie. I just recently saw Tim Burton's movie 9. I thought it was incredible. But of course, I love all of his stuff. So many books and movies...so little time.

I'll write again soon! I have a lot coming up! Thank you all so much for supporting me in so many ways.
