Whew! Last week was one busy week. Thanks to Jesi Lea Ryan for stopping by last Thursday, and to anyone who’s emailed about an interview or guest post, I’ll be getting back to you shortly. Anyone else who’d like to be featured either email me or leave a comment – plenty of Thursdays open…
If you’re interested in self-publishing as it relates to the romance genre, I’ll be guest-posting this Wednesday at the Aspiring Romance Writers blog – stop by and say “hi”.

Last week was crazy – very productive in some ways, insanely frustrating in others. I was off work all week, and took a few hours Monday to finish up the revisions for Desert Heat. It’s now in the hands of the editor, and hopefully getting all cleaned up and spiffy for readers. I barely had time for any other writing last week due to party preparations, and didn’t manage to get ahead on TBW. I’ll be happy to get back to regular writing this week.
On the personal front, we just barely made our own party, but a good time was had by all and the only household casualties were the pilot light on the water heater (which luckily, we discovered Sunday night), and the floor in the office where the dogs were contained. Apparently Lucy’s separation anxiety has progressed to epic proportions, and she managed to dig all the way through the carpet to the bare wood floor beneath, exposing a good foot and a half of wood. Good thing we were already planning to remodel the office over the next few months – I need a place to write that’s quiet on occasion, and a desk/chair for better posture. For those who may be worried, Lucy’s fine – next year I’ll make sure she’s treated with anti-anxiety herbals before the party.
Goals for the Week
Draft at least four chapters of TBW

That’s my week, along with going back to the day job – what’s going on in your world? Read any good books lately?
