Where did January go?
In Minnesota we have had a very mild winter, in my humble opinion. That all changed on Tuesday, February 2. We were hit with a massive snow storm. I live south of the Minnesota River, and we received a large portion of snow. Eleven plus inches. I measured the snow on my deck with a wooden twelve inch ruler and it dropped beneath the top of the snow. Now, I understand that the measurements vary around our neighborhood, but it gives you good idea. We now have winter in the Twin Cities. I’m just glad they’re saying an early spring. But who can believe a groundhog?
Taming the Texas Beauty is a slow work in progress. I mean slow. I rewrote a new opening scene, which my critique partners prefer to the first draft, and haven’t written anything new beyond that. Stumped, I forced myself to plot a more in-detail storyline and came up with a new ending. Now to write the scenes I plotted.
My review tour for Up Close and Personal was a success. I received four wonderful reviews. You can find links to the reviews here, if you’d like to read what the ladies had to say about my latest release.
I created a cover for my upcoming short story, Love in Concert, in the MFW anthology, Festivals of Love, which you can see here. It’s a photo I took while at the Vans Warped Tour in 2015. The anthology is scheduled to release on May 30, 2016. When I made this cover, I decided to make one for my short story, Roadside Catch, in the MFW anthology, Love in the Land of Lakes.

Later this spring, join me as Midwest Fiction Writers celebrates the popularity and cultural importance to today’s women of romance fiction with a very special viewing of the award-winning documentary Love Between the Covers. Meet and mingle, in a warm and intimate setting, with smart and savvy local authors during a book-signing, and stay for a panel presentation. The event will be happening on Thursday, April 21 at 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm at the beautiful Heights Theater in Colombia Heights. You can learn more about this here.

There’s nothing new and exciting happening in my personal life. We’re all holed up for the winter. Looking forward to warmer weather when we get to sit along the sideline and watch my little guy play soccer. Oh shoot! Little guy turns twelve at the end of the month. He’s not so little anymore. He stands as tall as my shoulders, if not a little above. Man, the years are passing me by quickly.
