Just stopped at the bank to open a checking account with my first advance check. What a thrill. Also left a business card with a very interested teller. The Barnes and Noble in Surprise want me back for the local author's booksigning in January, and when Fudge-Laced Felonies is released wants to throw me a launch party! It's just keeps getting better and better. I ordered 200 black pencils with my website in gold and once I see what I know will be an awesome cover for the book, I'll make bookmarks. I'm having so much fun!

More good news on the book front. Fudge-Laced Felonies has been moved from July 2008 to May 2008. Another author missed their deadline and that left an opening for me. I can hardly contain my excitement. My agent has book two in the series and I'm 15,000 words into book three. Then it's back to the drawing board for another quirky, lovable character that can live on through at least three books. I'm having a blast!

Robin Miller, writing as Robin Caroll has managed to draw the reader deep into Cajun country. Smack dab in the middle of the swamp. Alligator death rolls, Cajun food, age-old family secrets, love and distrust. These are all the components that make up her first novel. Having read the manuscript in critique form, I can't wait to purchase a copy and am eagerly looking forward to the next book in the series.
