Where did all the time go?

Well the summer was incredibly busy, and I didn't get near the writing done that I would have liked. School starts Tuesday for the kids, I don't go back until the 17th, so that's almost two weeks to try to accomplish some serious writing.

I had a plot bunny attack - remind me to post the picture of my "plot bunny" - that I am indulging. If things go well, I may have a sneak peek to show you all soon. Southern Summer Nights is also looking for some attention finally, and so is Price of Valor. It would figure - months with very little chatter from my characters, then all the sudden they all start talking at once.Wish me luck on my time management!

There are a lot of great things in store for Renaissance Romance Publishing for the fall, too. Lisa, Michele and I had a wonderful summit meeting here in Virginia the beginning of August where we began making plans for the next steps going forward. One of those steps was to officially open for submissions. On August 1st, we announced our first group of Open Calls,  and we have already signed one new author with an amazing trilogy. I am planning to sneak a few minutes of her time from her busy writing schedule, and sit down for a quick Q&A to share with you all.

If you are a writer, and are interested in more information about RenRom's Submission Guidelines and Open Calls, check out out website.

The next book in the Candy Collection is entitled Harvest Treats will release on Sept 25th and we will be revealing the cover on Sept 16th. The second book from Michele Richard's Mocked By Faith trilogy will drop in October, and we have several others in the pipes that I can't quite talk about yet. Suffice to say, there are lots of surprises on their way.

That's all for now, but stay tuned!

Oh- I almost forgot - My Plot Bunny! 

See you all soon!


  1. I know how you feel about not doing as much writing as you had planned. I'm lucky, I don't go back to school until 24th and this year I am only going back part time, so here's hoping!

    1. I only take one class at a time, but Master's level classes are HARD! I did less work in three undergraduate classes than I do in one grad level.

  2. Well, this year I am having to resit the 2 modules I failed last years. One is 3 hours a week, the other is my teaching practice which is everyday for 6 weeks, plus weekends will be taken up with planning and evaluations... fun times huh
