Galleys are finished and I just wrote the back cover blurb a few minutes ago. Artwork should be here in a day or so for The Wolfen Strain, a gender reversal of Beauty and the Beast. Target date release is next month.


Tri--glad we've come to the end.

Nothing quite like free money to pad the bank account. I love books that keep selling while I'm working on other stuff.
Awesome!

Just went to final judgement rounds in a contest that pays a nice little cash award. Editor said the whole board thought it was a very strong contender. I won't say anymore, lest I jinx the whole thing.

This was quite a shock. I only did this as a lark.

Have been AWOL for a while. Apologies! Am drowning in edits, rewrites, and had to finish the fourth in the series by the end of April.

Congratulations on all the great news on sales!! Happy for all of you! And good luck, Tri!! Hope you kick butt!!

Contract signed and forms all filled out for the book I thought would never get done Dreams, Deceptions & Desires, part of Decadent Publishing's Western Escape series. Mine is historical set in 1868 and gives a look at the folk who began the town of Freewill, Wyoming.

Thank you! This was was tough because only half was in a digital file. The bulk of it was written on paper and sadly it was "lost" / inadvertently tossed. I wasn't really able to recreate a couple key missing scenes (totally bummed as it was some great emotional stuff) but it turned out pretty well.

Glad it worked out!! I'd be crying my eyes out if I'd lost that much work! Although I've accidentally deleted a file or two before--especially one big research file.

I'm thrilled that I finished writing the fourth book in the Amazon Alliance and working on developmental edits for book 2.

Because I love my Siren publisher so much, I took this week to write a novella for her. Sent it in Thursday night, received an offer to publish Friday afternoon!! That has to be the fastest turnaround I've ever seen! Sooo happy she likes my work that much!!

Dang, Barb, you resurrected a manuscript and filled in half of the blanks! Then sold it! OMG, way to go. I've lost four novels completely and it's heart-breaking. Don't know if I could ever go back to that timeline and bring them back to life.
