Almost A New Year

Well, 2007 was pretty exciting for me, writing wise. It saw the publication of three of my books. I hope that I can get something out there for 2008 but I'm not sure. At this point I'm still not finished with Dreamer's Sea. I've upped my goal word count from 80k to 90k. Currently I'm nearly to 83k. Can't complain but I'm also getting to the point that I just want it done! One goal that I'd LOVE to reach this coming year, even if I don't get anything published, is to finish Dreamer's Sea and find an agent. That is my number one goal.


Now, also in 2008 I do know that I'll have 2 of my books coming out in print. Sweet Forever will be available in print February 26th, 2008 and Where One Road Leads will come out in print later in the year. Stay tuned for contests!


Exciting news! Finally Home has been nominated for Best Romance of 2007 long e-book format over at The Long And The Short Of It . Polls open on Tuesday January 1st!
I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!

5 Days Til Christmas.....gulp
I'm so unprepared this year. I've only gotten a fraction of my shopping done and even though I'm a last minute shopper, this year I'm really really late. It's ridiculous. I only get one day off a week (though I get out at 1:30 every day but Saturday I also have 4 kids-and I'm not going Christmas shopping with 4 kids). My one day off this past week we had a major snowstorm. No shopping. My mom was nice enough to watch the kids yesterday and I got some done, but there's still so much to do.

So, will I be a horrible person if I don't get my sister and brother's presents in time. After all, they're not going to get them on time ANYWAY. I'm just a horrible person.

I blame part of this on the cold that's knocked me down. I've had a horrible cough that hurts my neck (not throat) and keeps me awake at night. Yah, I should go to the doctors but I hate making that trip... with 4 kids.

whine whine whine.

Dreamers Sea is getting longer and longer and longer. I hit the 81K mark the other day and I still have a HUGE scene to add. Wow. Maybe it's going to be too long. I hope not. Well, better too long than too short. But I really have to get it finished. Next week is going to be a loss. Everyone is home (but me) on vacation. Usually that's not condusive to writing.

Off I go to get ready for work.

Old Dreams
I've been listening to Nora Robert's Birthright on cd and it's been reminding me of something that I had always wanted to do growing up.... well, two things really. The heroine is an archaeologist. The hero is an anthropologist. I went into college with the intention of going into one field or the other. Unfortunately I didn't A) choose the right college and B)was lured away from my intended path by the dazzle of the stage. But before all I wanted to do was to dig. I would've been happy to dig dinosaur bones too (after all the famous T-Rex named Sue was found on my cousin's ranch in South Dakota-I would've had a perfect place to go).

Luckily as I listen to the story it also makes me want to write. Writing is a much older dream to me than being a digger.

But instead I was stuck in the office doing the most boring of all jobs on earth. I guess I'm lucky that I could go home and write.
