Deadline!!!!!!!!!!!





Yep, that's me........staring into the computer screen, feeling it suck my girlish spirit into the web of.....well, whatever is inside a computer, I don't know these things because I just want to know how to turn it on and turn it off.

I'm on the final polish of one Desire for Silhouette and writing the next Desire! Good times. At least this is a three book series about brothers. It's great when you can write connected books back to back to back. You remember everyone's names without checking. You know what they're doing who their children are and you can keep everything straight much more easily. This series, I absolutely love. It's about The King brothers.......and the three book series is called, The Kings Of California!

I came up with the name for that series....feeling absolutely brilliant. And what did I see not two weeks later?? An indy movie with Michael Douglas coming out called, you guessed it. The King of California!

So what's the deal? Is the Idea Fairy running around hitting everyone with the same idea? Does she do it deliberately? I think so. I think she enjoys watching us all scramble.

Needless to say, my books are going to be FAR different from this movie...but still. It takes the shine of creative brilliance off to know that someone else is talking to my Idea Fairy.

    Maureen, what's with that Idea Fairy anyway? Isn't he supposed to be EXCLUSIVE?

    I'm really looking forward to your Kings of CA Trilogy!

    Maureen, faeries have cruel senses of humor. You know that.

    I'm glad you made your deadline!
