The reissue of Sweet Revenge is now out! I do love a man in a kilt and this cover is no exception. I'm getting all warm and tingly just looking at it. <G> Sweet Revenge was actually the second book I ever wrote, however it was the fourth one published. The main thought I had as I was writing Galen and Kyla's story was that I wanted there to be a strong female friendship for Kyla. As a stranger stranded in a strange land, I wanted there to be someone she could rely on other than her new husband. Friendships are important but they often get pushed under the rug to the main romance in stories and I wanted this one to be different.
I have another reissue coming out just in time for the New Year. This is the one and only contemporary spy novel I've written so far, The Loving Daylights, which as you can probably tell by the title is a spoof of the infamous James Bond series. It's about a heroine named Jane Spyrus who's more of a Q than a James Bond type character. Between Jane's talent with gadgets, help from her grandmother, a very savvy senior ex-spy, as well as aid from our hero Abel Andretti, she might have a chance of surviving the trouble that she's stumbled into.
Other than that I am in my writing cave working away on my next deadline. Hi-Ho… Hi-Ho... It's off to work I go! I'm afraid I've been singing this tune for too long without a break; however, I do see an end in sight...at least for this year. Christmas is only a few short weeks away and I'm really looking forward to decking the halls and jingling Santa's bells.
(Jeez, that sounded almost naughty didn't it?! Well I didn’t mean it that way so get your mind out of the gutter! LOL)
I hope you enjoy the weeks leading up to Christmas. Personally I always find the anticipation of Christmas to be almost as much fun as the day itself. Because once the big day is here, it will fly by just like Santa on Christmas Eve whom none of us ever manage to see even though he's essentially a flying target! I’m not sure how we keep missing a jolly, round fellow in a red suit laughing crazily as he travels around in a giant red sled full of toys led by nine flying reindeer...Obviously we're either blind, heavily sedated or both. Either way the man keeps getting away with it so I guess we’ll just have to appreciate the creepy guy in the red suit that breaks in every Christmas Eve as part of the mystery of the holiday. <G>
I hope my American friends have a lovely Thanksgiving and I hope the rest of you have a wonderful few weeks of relative peace before the big day arrives! Take care and be safe.
