Congratulations, Alison, on winning Jade Lee’s, The Concubine! I’ll send you an e-mail to get your snail mail.
For this blog, I’m still doing historicals, this one by Olivia Drake called Seducing the Heiress. Olivia Drake is a pseudonym of Barbara Dawson Smith. As always, to be eligible for the drawing, leave a comment, and you must type in your email address. I’ll also add you to my newsletter for updates on all the fun stuff and releases, too. I’ll announce the winner on my next blog in two weeks! And speaking of that blog, I’m having special guest Bella Andre and she’ll be giving away a copy of Wild Heat, so don’t miss it!
Last time I talked about writer’s block and fears. Well, I’ve had a complete turnaround! Thanks to all of you for sharing, of course. My RWA (Romance Writers of America) meeting was on Saturday. Now, first, the meeting place is up in Berkley, an hour and a half drive. And it was so sunny and gorgeous on Saturday and I wanted to write, not be inside in a meeting! And plus, let me tell you about getting back home across the Santa Cruz Mountains on a sunny Saturday when everyone wants to go to the beach!!! Nightmarish is the most polite word I can think of. But, I’d promised to drive some of my friends, so well, I had to go. Oh My God! I’m so glad I did. We had Barry Eisler, a mystery writer, speaking. He was wonderful, and everything he said just hit me the right way, and I was furiously writing notes so I could come home and put into practice everything he said! He gave us all a copy of his latest book, too! So see, sometimes, even when you’re grumpy, the whole day can turn around at the snap of a finger.
Have you experienced any miraculous switches in attitude recently?
Don’t forget that the second Courtesans Tales, Hers for the Evening was out last week! Read an excerpt on my site! I really loved writing the stories in this book. Plus Take Your Pleasure is still available!
