Drum roll please....

In other news, I've got some fun stuff happening on the Veranda. Later this month I'm interviewing my friend and fellow writer M.V. Freeman about her debut novel's release INCANDESCENT. It's a wonderful paranormal romance that you can already pre-order from Amazon and Barnes & Noble and through Crimson Romance. This is a digital book, so prepare your e-reader for a fantastic journey with M.V. Freeman's cast of characters who have special powers.
I'm also hosting my book club this month. We're reading THE RIVER WITCH by Kimberly Brock. If you want to read about her writing journey toward publication click here.
On the home front I've finally launched my chick into Auburn. War Eagle!!! Now I have no excuses and must sit down to write the next story. Although TYCOON was rejected, this writer was not rejected and must come up with a new set of amazing characters and three chapters to send to the editor. The story has finally germinated after much mulling and analyzing and cheapo writer's juice consumption. I begin building this new story TODAY!! So guess where I'll be for a while? Yup. In my writing cave and loving it!!
And there's nothing better than a shiny new story to build. Cassie and Marco's journey toward their happily ever after has changed, but the core of the story remains the same. Two lost souls find each other and discover home.
That's my news. What's yours?
