I’m thinking that’s the sound that happens when I hit send lol Sent another partial out this afternoon. Still need to do the synopsis so I can send another one out next week. Its sad its been so long since I wrote one, I’m going through my notes on how I write one lol I have to pick out my top 5 plot points and then fill in the gaps. Hoping it won’t take too long. Printer is almost out of ink, so need to change cartridges this weekend so I can print out everything I typed out the last few days and do oneRead More →

On the agent requests. Emailed the partial to NYC. Would have been a lot sooner if Word would have co-operated all weekend and not lost chapter 4 numerous times. Which I didn’t catch till I was working on the laptop and the scene I knew I cut Friday night was suddenly staring me in the face. So I had to try and remember all the new parts, move them to one file then go back to the original and put them in there. Talk about a P.I.T.A *g* Still in the agent news, another request arrived yesterday afternoon for an agent wanting an exclusive, whichRead More →

Did this week go? Just me or did it pass by super fast? It wasn’t a bad week though, 2 agent requests to see Chey *happy dance* I’m printing out the release form tomorrow and getting it in the mail this weekend. One agent said I could sub the partial either by snail mail or email, I’m opting email because its quicker, cheaper and 99% better chance of it actually arriving. :o) (I’m still traumatized over the 3 missing partials from the summer of 05). Woke up early this morning (well early for me — 8 am) so I wouldn’t miss the chat with DeidreRead More →

I would have posted yesterday but I had Caridad touring so I waited till today. Chey got her first request for a FULL… *g* So that’ll be a partial and a full circulating around NYC by the end of the month. :o)Read More →

Today there’s a special guest on the blog, author Caridad Pineiro, author of SOUTH BEACH CHICAS CATCH THEIR MAN (Downtown Press 2007)! I was lucky enough to have a chance to interview Caridad about her writing and SOUTH BEACH CHICAS. Why did you want to be a writer?I love to create and tell stories and writing is one way where I can do that. I enjoy the process of getting to know the characters, finding out what kind of story will best tell their story and then sitting down to write it. How long have you been writing?I wrote my first book in the fifthRead More →

I had a great blog post worked out for yesterday all about confidence and really good stuff and then, I lost it. Gone into the abyss. Wah!! :o) So I’ll play catch up on my week instead. ~ Monday *the highlight was RAW and I was so totally right on who was the mysterious son ~ Tuesday * the arrival of my RWA CDS. Woohoo. Much rejoicing, till I realized that added to my nicely already inflated visa bill due to my purchase last week… (see cute pic below…) ~ Wednesday* listened to the Nora chat twice, just to hear her say F-Off lol* enteredRead More →

Suzanne asked yesterday if I was going to post a piccie of what it was I’d bought myself. Of course :o) Just had to wait to get the film back and get it scanned. So that first pic is my fave NHL player (who’s now playing in Switzerland…) And this would be me Friday afternoon…wearing the new jersey :o)Read More →

And it kicked off on the right foot. I ordered something for myself this week, a little treat kind of a thing and didn’t expect it till next week. Fed ex delivered it at 2pm yesterday lol Totally surprised me Editing is going well, except for one glitch. There’s a scene I know I wrote, its still in my head but I can’t turn it up. Not on the computers. Not in my back-ups at yahoo and not in any of the handwritten pages or the print outs. So I have no clue where it disappeared to, but I know that at some point IRead More →
