Good News Times Two

I've finished my WIP and gotten a request for a full of my second book from HQN!

Almost There!

I'm at 95% of the way to being done with my WIP! I hope to finish today or at least get within pages.

On an odd note, I had to sleep with two paper mache reindeer last night. I bought them for Christmas and they were sitting by my bed in a bag (waiting for me to find them a home until after Thanksgiving) when, around 3am, I heard rustling. Naughty cat rustling. Someone black fat and fuzzy was chewing their ears off.

The reindeer slept safely beside me the rest of the night.

Crunch, Crunch, Crunch

Time is ticking away to get my two Golden Heart entries in the mail.

I still have to write two synopsises.
I still have to polish both entries one final time.
I still have to finish the second ms. But I'm getting close.

What's up with your writing?

Kids, Not Cats

How cute is this child? This is my brother's little boy, Ben. Couldn't you just eat him up?

B. Also tomorrow, the Sun magazine with my short story, Sweet Beginnings, goes on sale! This is my first published short so I'm excited about it.

Better Late Than Never...

This is one of my goofy cats, Sam. As you can see, he's a great help when I'm trying to write. (How do I get anything done? That's really what you're thinking, isn't it?)

The conference was great! I got a request from an agent, so there's one more thing I need to get done. Yikes, I have a ton of work to do!

Off to write. Have a great day!

Gone for a bit

Howdy, blog friends!

I'm off to Virginia to the Chesapeake Romance Writer's annual Fantasies By The Sea Conference. I'll be back on Monday (and yes, there will be a Goofy Cat Monday). I'll be sure to bring presents for everyone!

While I'm gone, here's something for you to discuss:

How do you name your characters? How do you name your villians? Are there underlying meanings to the names you give them? Spill it!

Furkid Update

Shadow is home and everything went fine. They showed me pictures of her teeth before and after the cleaning - not only didn't she require any extractions but the vet said she has the teeth of a much younger cat than her actual 18-20 years.

They also told me that because of the anesthisia and morphine, not to worry if she didn't eat tonight or even tomorrow morning. As soon as I opened the carrier door when we got home, she made a beeline to the food. Such a tough cookie!

So far, so good. I think she's enjoying the morphine. I keep hearing these little half-purrs come out of her. lol

Say A Little Prayer

Shadow (my eldest cat) is undergoing surgery today. I took her to the vet this morning, they ran some bloodwork and were surprised to see that other than her infected ear, she's in pretty good health for a cat of her years. The surgery will be as short as possible so she doesn't have to be under too long.

Poor sweet creature. I pray this turns out well.

It's hard to write romance when a member of the family is in hospital.
