Let the Good Times Roll
Jean's Precious Angel is finally getting his chance to fly. My grandsons are home! (Believe me, this Mimi is thrilled!) And as of today, I've got all my children in one place, except for my oldest son. Sadly, he's deployed right now and won't be home until later this year.
In spite of this small set back, I'm having the time of my life these days. Not only do I share a fabulous blog with four other marvelous writers, I now have a publisher for my book DUKE BY DAY, ROGUE BY NIGHT and a tentative release date... October 29, 2012!
I'm extremely grateful to Jennifer Lawler at Crimson Romance for giving me this opportunity to bring Percival Avery, Marques Stanton and Lady Constance Danbury's story to life.
While I prepare for the whirlwind publishing will bring into my life this year, and the RWA Conference in Anaheim next month, I'm revamping my website with the help of my fantastic daughter, D2, who's in her senior year as a Graphic Design Major. She's got fabulous ideas that will rock readers' socks off! And I'm especially brimming with anticipation to see the kind of online playground she'll create to showcase my professional life as an author and help me promote my books.
So much to do, and I've got grandsons to hug. My edits will be arriving in a few weeks. On top of that, I'm back to work on DBD, RBN's sequel, THE CAPTAIN'S PRIZE. And, with an invitation to host my first table at the Southern Magic Readers' Luncheon on November 3, 2012, I've got swag to prepare and a career to promote.
A successful ascent up another rung of the ladder does not mean the climb ends. We must never look down at the broken, brittle wood below. And above all, we must never give up, no matter how obscure the dream or the goal.
Jean's Precious Angel wants to fly. I'm high in the clouds. Where are you?
