Here in Kentucky we had a pretty good winter up until the last couple of weeks. Then we got hit with ten inches or so of snow, then make-you-wish-you-were-in-the-South-Pacific cold, followed by another couple of inches of snow. Nothing like those poor folks in New England, but still enough to bitch about.
The silver lining in winter weather is that it’s a good time to write. Other than reading, what else can you do? Oh, yeah, shovel, but I’ve got another old dog in the house who takes care of that. So I’ve been writing and working on my websites. I decided to make a separate site for my blog (as you can see if you’ve visited before).
Bad Girls, the second book in my Eden mystery series, is coming right along. I estimate I’m about halfway through the first draft. I will publish it sometime in the spring, although I don’t have a definite date yet. I’m also in the planning stages of another romantic suspense novel.
On the negative side, the panel/signing scheduled for this past Saturday at the Fleming County, Ky., library had to be cancelled. It’s been rescheduled for March 28th. I have another panel this coming Saturday at the Woodford County, Ky., library; I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the weather cooperates for that one. It’s strictly for romance writers and I will be one of eleven writers on the panel. Besides the rescheduled one for March, I have three in April and a book fair in May. And I’ve got a lot of libraries left to call.
Below is a picture I took of the lake. That mist is what’s coming out of the only part we could see that wasn’t frozen. This is what I see when I stand up from my keyboard and look out the window. When I see this, it almost makes me like winter!
