I’m a Guest!

on July 16, 2012

My third guest blog of the summer and I couldn’t be more thrilled than to be spending the day with the lovely PJ, Gannon, Andrea, and Buffy over at the Romance Dish. I’m talking about this Golden Heart experience really being the ultimate reader fantasy. What could be better for a long-time Romance devotee than… Read More

The Wild Ride Continues

on May 7, 2012

A month since the last post! Goodness gracious, where did the time go? My only excuse is what I now refer to as GH brain. A condition not unlike pregnancy brain or new baby brain and the shorter but still traumatizing moving brain. Between queries, requests, conference planning, new book writing, and, starting today, online… Read More

The Wild GH Ride Has Begun

on April 11, 2012

Just over two weeks since getting that exciting Golden Heart® call and life is already hectic and somewhat surreal. I’d heard finalist say this ride is exciting, but had no idea that excitement would start immediately. There is no ramp up to being a GH finalist. No adjustment period to let the mind-boggling reality set… Read More

I did it! I finaled in the Golden Heart®. For those who don’t know, the Golden Heart is the highest award for unpublished manuscripts through the Romance Writers of America®. Hundreds of entries compete in each category and by some miracle, my MS MEANT TO BE finaled in the Contemporary Single Title category. The whirlwind… Read More

Stuck In The Middle With Me

on March 5, 2012

Back on New Year’s Eve, I turned forty years old. I figure, if I’m lucky, I’ve hit the mid-point of my life. Getting older has never bothered me before. Like most kids, I couldn’t wait to grow up. Then I hit my twenties and realized everyone still referred to me as a kid. Made. Me…. Read More

Some Perspective or Living and Working With Idiots

on February 8, 2012

I have this motto in life. “You don’t have to like me, but you will respect me.” I think I made it up, but I could have stolen it from someone else. I don’t particularly care right now. Mostly because I care about too many other things. Which is my problem. I think I’m a… Read More

Not sure what happened to the last week. Seriously. Where did it go? Feels like I just got back from the Georgia Romance Writers Moonlight & Magnolias conference yesterday. Guess I should do a quick summary, huh? I had a blast. After three Nationals in a row (which I love) it was nice to attend… Read More

This weekend I’m attending the Georgia Romance Writers Moonlight & Magnolias Conference in Decatur, GA. My registration went in six months ago so I’ve had plenty of time to plan. Have I? Don’t be silly. I’m now in the throes of conference panic, trying to remember what to pack while not freaking about pitching. And… Read More

Two Life Lessons With One Wayward Click

on July 28, 2011

I must start this blog by saying I try to live by one important principle. Do no harm. I’ve had my feelings hurt and my heart broken. Neither experience was particularly pleasant, to say the least. (And I’m sure both experiences will happen again.) I do not want to be the person who inflicts these… Read More
