I never seem to do much during spring break but PLAY and this week is shaking out to be no different. My daughter came in town last Thursday night and it has been nothing but run, run, run. Writing? Pfffft? What's that? Yesterday I managed about two whole pages of my current project. Today daughter and I are heading off for our yearly checkups at the doctor. It has become tradition for us to schedule a day to get this crappy but necessary thing done and then we treat ourselves to lunch afterwards. I guess misery loves company after all, huh? So yeah, we do this together, take care of ourselves and, as a mom, I want to be a good example, right? So we'll heading out to get this done in a few hours.
Years ago when all the kids were living at home we took trips for spring break. It might be shopping in Dallas or heading to San Antonio to take the kids to Sea World (and more shopping) but times have certainly changed. Family trips with all four of us seem to be a thing of the past and I hate that. Mainly it's due to everyone getting older, moving off, having evil day jobs and things like that. It's rather sad but it has been like this for about five years or more now. Some things we just never get used to, huh? So today, and for the rest of the week, I'll hang with my daughter and we'll talk, catch up, stay in town and see what's what.
In other news: I'm happy to announce that Return to Delight, a contemporary western, has been contracted by Ellora's Cave for their Lawless line. Waiting for edits and a beautiful new shiny cover which I'll most certainly show off as soon as possible. I'm also working on Rio's Touch, book three of the Savage Sanctuary series, and hope to have this finished by the end of the month. Once spring break is over I'll head back into my cave and whip it out.
Special thanks to my friend, author Allie Standifer, who felt my pain last week over the loss of my Cadbury Creme Eggs. She kindly sent me a box of them which I quickly 'stashed away' in a secret location.
