Welcome to my home page, where you can get the latest scoop!
April 9 - I will be at LARA, the Los Angeles Chapter of Romance Writers of America, giving a workshop on the Nuts and Bolts of Self-Publishing. It’s a topic I love to talk about, if only because the world of publishing is changing so quickly, and the people who are the most successful at it are the ones who can adapt. For more details about attending, go here: http://www.lararwa.com/meetings/
WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING?
Works-in-Progress My newest manuscript is a departure from anything else I’ve ever done, although it feels like a culmination of every childhood imagining I’ve ever had. It’s an adult historical fantasy, “new adult” for those familiar with the genre. I’m trying something a little different with this one, by querying agents to see what kind of traditional deal I can get. Although I love the sense of ownership that self-publishing brings, some projects might benefit from a publisher, especially now that I know what I want from a traditional contract.
What’s the book about?
Lisette de Lille is not excited to be marrying a local nobleman, but she is shocked when he and his Spanish mistress sell her to the pirate Rocco instead. Rocco is ruthless and seductive, and holds the secret to an ancient curse involving dragons. Lisette will do anything to avenge her kidnapping, even if it means becoming as ruthless and as seductive as her captor. But will she pay the ultimate price, of becoming a dragon herself, to bring judgment to her betrayers, or will her love for Rocco turn her heart from revenge?
Tune in next time to find out more.
In the meantime, I’ve begun the fifth Peri Minneopa book. It’s going to involve aerospace engineering fraud and espionage, murder and blackmail, and we’ll meet Peri’s brother, Endeavor (Dev).
March 26 Another Sunday, another month, means another OC Sisters in Crime. In February, we will hear from the fascinating Michael Thomas Barry, who will tell us all about writing true crime versus fictional crime! As usual, we will be at the Irvine Ranch Water District Community Meeting Room (visit the website and look at the map). The fun starts at 2 pm. For more information, http://www.ocsistersincrime.org.
