Hi Everyone! Yes, I'm back, and hope to be around much more lately. Mr. Wolff is finally better and so am I-- after the man gave me the Chicken Pox. Yes, I said Chicken Pox. I never had them as a kid and when he got shingles, I got the Chicken Pox. As a 35 year old woman. Ugh. Seriously. Ugh.
But I'm better now and have tons of news to share.
If you're in the Austin area, I will be speaking/signing/doing all kinds of fun games, etc. with a bunch of other Austin romance authors, at Pflugerville Library this Saturday at 2 p.m. Stop by and see us!
I just finished revisions on my first contemporary YA romance, International Kissing Club, with two of my dear friends turned writing partners. It will be out in January of next year under the author name Ivy Adams and details the adventures of four girls from Paris, Texas who become international exchange students (well, one gets stuck at home) and kiss and tell all over three continents. It's fun, flirty, and was an absolute blast to write!!!! I'll post something from it soon :)
I'm in the middle of securing all my different writing conferences for the upcoming months and you'll be able to catch up to me at DARA-- Dreamin' in Dallas, RT Convention in Los Angeles, Texas Library Association's Conference in Austin, New England Romance Writer's Conference, RWA Nationals in New York, RomCon in Denver and Lora Leigh's RAW weekend! It's a ton of stuff, but I'd love to see some of you if you're in the areas :)
Unguarded, my December superromance, has been doing really well. Here are some fun review links to follow, if you want to hear more about it:
I'm about to start revisions on Forbidden Embers, Logan's book and the third in the Dragon's Heat series. I'm also organzing my blog tour for Hidden Embers, Quinn's book, which comes out in April. Less than two months to wait ....
I'm also hard at work on my first Urban Fantasy, currently titled, Something Wicked, about a woman who sees dead people. Not ghosts, mind you, but dead bodies. Look for more about this in coming months :)
And, finally, I just got the most amazing cover quote from the talented and hilarious, Tera Lynn Childs, author of Forgive My Fins and Oh My Gods! She wrote this about Tempest and I couldn't be more thrilled, especially about the achingly beautiful part:
"Dark, magical, and achingly beautiful, Tempest Rising enthralled me from beginning to end. I alternately cried and cheered for Tempest as she navigated the world between human and mermaid, land and water, comfort and passion, self and duty. A must read for any mermaid lover and anyone who loves an epic read."
Pretty awesome, right?
So that's what's up with me. What have you guys been doing lately?
