OOPS! I was in the cave for about three weeks and totally spaced my website Contest! Just for that, I've picked THREE winners instead of two. Congratulations, Norma, Shannon and Linda! I'll be emailing you shortly.
In other news, Not So Over Eli releases as part of the Midnight Ink boxed set in just TWO DAYS!!! I've posted an excerpt on my Not So Over Eli page so scurry on over and have a look. This turned out to be one of my favorite stories EVER! It came out so naturally and evenly, with no sobbing or head-desking, or any real stress except for a few all-nighters, which I just seemed to be programmed for. I MUST write in long, uninterrupted blocks of time and nights seem to be the only ones available. And I adore all three characters--much more than I expected to, actually. The heroine's name is Rhonda, which I have to admit was a name I picked for her in Not So Tiny Tim because she was a "throwaway character" and Rhonda was a name I didn't care for (I have a negative association with it) and would never use for a heroine. So OF COURSE she would turn out to be awesome and I love her and I might actually like the name Rhonda from now on. :D It's kind of the same story with Bart--I'd never have intentionally picked picked it for a hero because I have a family member with that name. But what are you gonna do? He demanded a book and he got one. If that doesn't teach me there's no such thing as a "throwaway" character, nothing will.
Oh, and I'll put up buy links for Eli as soon as they're available.
In farm news, harvest is almost done! Just 2 more days to go. I can't WAIT--well, I can't wait to be done running all over, taking meals to the field and doing errands for Mr Robin. But once harvest is over, Mr Robin is going to be in my hair full-time for the next six months. GAH! I need to find that man a hobby that takes him away from the house all day. Any suggestions? :D
Finally, my birthday is tomorrow--I'll be (drumroll, please) FIFTY!!! I can hardly believe it--I feel like I'm, oh, maybe 35? How can I be 50?! I just don't know, but as long as I have kinky books to write and teenagers around to keep me busy, I doubt I'll ever feel my age. Thanks for giving me something to stay young for, readers! Oh, and Mr Robin will also be 50--ten days after me, on Thanksgiving Day. He was actually born on a Thanksgiving Day. He's always sure to point out that I'm ten days older, while I very tactfully don't point out that he looks ten years older. *grin*
Well that's all the news for now. Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
