I should probably see the first signs of book cover art for Fudge-Laced Felonies sometime in March. I can't wait. I'll probably cry. I've going through the first scope of editions for Candy-Coated Secrets (this was a fun book to write), and am 20,000 words into Chocolate-Covered Crime.
In addition to writing, I'm kept busy reading wonderful books and reviewing for Author's Choice Reviews at faithinlove.com. When you've got the time, head over and take a look. Reviewing is a priceless, and fun, way of keeping up with what is happening in the industry of publishing. Many of the books I have the priviledge of reviewing aren't in the stores yet. I get one of the first looks. The best way to see what publishers are looking for today.
If you're serious about writing, you must read. A lot.
