Popping in to say hi…

Still on a blog sabbatical, as you can see. It was Maya’s birthday last week (she got a camera cell phone, that’s her to the left) and we’ve been through three parties. And then it was my Nana’s birthday too. More parties! And our dryer broke and we now have a stack of laundry that reaches my chin. The new dryer arrives tomorrow, thank goodness!

And in between all of that, I’m bouncing from my day job to my other stuff. The novel is coming along soooo good. I wish I could spend every breathing moment on it, but that’s impossible. I can only work on it when everyone is asleep, so I’m up until 2 in the morning. I’m tired. I hope it is worth the effort. I could be dreaming about eating warm croissants in Paris.

Last week, I had three random readers check out a bit of my book and they all came back with great reviews, so I feel good about it. I’ve literally taken over the bedroom. I hung poster boards up on one entire wall to represent my chapters, and am using different colored Post-It notes for my characters. That way I can step back and make sure everything is evenly paced and move them around if need be.

I was at the Arizona Book Festival on Saturday and met the talented Lisa Plumley. She is a local that is also a USA Today best selling author! She writes 2-3 books a year and here I am whining about one that I’ve been working on for 18 months! Anyway, Lisa is an inspiration, check out her web site!

In case I don’t have time to post again for a bit, I want o remind you about the debut of Stylelicous this Thursday on the DIY Network! CLICK HERE FOR TIMES. I’m so dang proud of those chicas!!!
