I was explaining to a friend of mine that it's been months since I've written a letter to my readers, well, aside from the ones that appear in the front of my books. It's sad, too, because I really do appreciate each and everyone of you. It's just that my day job sucked the life out of me. Yeah ... I know. I should have made the time. I didn't. I'm sorry for that.
Thankfully, I took the plunge and quit my "day job" so I am back to writing full-time. This means more stories and more time for me to do all that author-type stuff -- like attending conferences, book signings and anything else that tickles my fancy.
So what have I been up to? Well, I'm in the home stretch for my second book in the X-Treme Racing League series. That should be done by the end of June. After that, I get to write my next Harlequin American.
I know a few of you have asked about the Lords of Silverton series. I want to reassure you that I've written the first two books of that series for HQN. When they will be released is anybody's guess, but now that I'm back to writing full-time, I plan to get to the bottom of that ASAP.
Other than that, all is well in my life. Many of my long-time readers will recall the death of my parents. I'm still grieving for them, but I suspect that I will always mourn their loss. Gosh, for awhile there it seemed as if a very dark cloud hung over our heads. It was horrible. Yet, we somehow managed to pull through, but I look back at those years and think how and the heck did we survive? Actually, I think I know how -- through God's grace and His grace alone.
I want you all to know that I think of you often. Whenever I turn on my laptop, your letters inspire me to do my best. I thank you for that.
