Wow! Long time no write


I really need to find the time to carve out the minutes to blog. One more thing on a long list of things to do.

Fudge-Laced Felonies will be available for retail the end of January. Candy-Coated Secrets will ship to the bookclub at the same time. For someone who wasn't gifted with patience, this seems to take forever. And no, I'm not asking God to teach me patience. Been there, done that!

My latest work, Shades of Crimson, was turned down by publishers as being too scary. Jeesh! Just because I read FBI profiling books and got into the head of the killer doesn't make it scary, does it? Okay, it was kind of scary. Someday the Christian market will be ready for a good thriller with a redemption story, right? Then I'll be ready.

I'm just so tired of Amish stories, you know? Too sweet. Although I did read one by new author, Beth Wiseman. Plain Perfect. Not your ordinary Amish story. I really enjoyed it.

Right now, I'm working on a historical that a couple of publishers expressed interest in. Of course, it'll have a healthy dose of suspense. Can't help it. Even my fun cozies have that. I'm managing to write an average of 10,000 words a week, but that will definitely slow down during the holidays.

Y'all have a great Thanksgiving!
