For the first time since probably April, I walked in our neighborhood last night. We’ve had around 80 days of 90-plus temps. That’s almost three months of hellish heat in one year. Help meeeeeeee! Last night, the temps were in the lower 80s, and it felt like fall. It wasn’t, and by the time I got home, I was soaked in sweat. Bleh! But, I walked. Outside!
In the past few months, we’ve had some rough family times, and I’ve been working like crazy, and I have to keep exercising, so the blog kind of slid to the bottom of my priority pile.
Trying to drag it back up, even if I only post one line a day.
So–I’ve done all the work for the newest book in my Smoky Mountains Series for Heartwarming, A Christmas Miracle. (Love that beautiful cover!)
I’ve also written and edited a novella, Once Upon a Thanksgiving, for the holiday anthology that returns to Christmas Town, Maine in A Heartwarming Holiday. (Last year’s second visit, A Heartwarming Christmas went to #81 on the USA Today Bestselling Books list.) And if you’re interested in the first stories that set in Christmas Town, you can still find them in Christmas Actually.
Last thing–I’ve submitted a proposal to Harlequin’s Medical Romance line. I started reading them earlier this year when they ran a blitz, looking for new authors. After falling in love with the line, I wanted to write them, and I have this Nurse Practitioner daughter who lets me drill her sweet brain for technical details!
So–since I’ve gotten my work life in order and realized that real life is always a little squidgy, I’m catching up here! One line a day–I can do that!
