Rebirth on Kindle...

This is really exciting for me!

One of my early historicals is now available on Kindle! SMALL TREASURES was one of my favorites.

I recently got the rights back to my early historicals and I'm giving them new life by making them available as ebooks.

Right now, its ONLY available on Kindle, but soon, I hope to get it up on all other ebook platforms.

It's really exciting to be able to give your much loved books a new life and I hope that my readers will love taking trips into Americana. This book is a western historical about a man so big and so strong, he's afraid to be around people--until one woman sees past what he is, to who he is and shows him that with love, anything is possible.

I'd really love you to take SMALL TREASURES out for a try and then let me know what you think.

RWA conference is coming...

Can't really believe conference is here again so fast, but it is!

Next week, a couple of thousand romance writers and readers will be gathering in New York City. (We'll be at the Marriott Marquis in Time Square if you want to stop in and say hi!)

For five days, there will be workshops, booksignings, meetings with editors, agents, fans. There will be time to visit with friends you speak to only in email all year long and there will be exhaustion, crabbiness, tears and laughter.

Once a year, we're set loose to play and we all look forward to it. The only downside........the plane ride.

The Dreaded Shopping

I loathe shopping.

I can't be the only one, right? I'm shopping for a few new things for RWA national conference and let me tell you....I'd rather face thirteen successive deadlines all within two weeks. Sigh.

So I tried to avoid stores by shopping online. BIG mistake. Worst part, the stuff never looks like the picture. Of course, the women in the pictures always look happy and shiny like the girl above. So then I end up not only not liking the stuff, but having to bundle it up and take it to the post office.

And THERE'S an exercise in futility. Twenty people in line and one woman behind the counter acting like she's on vacation in Tahiti...okay, clearly I'm too crabby to be blogging today!

How about you? Any shopping horror stories you'd like to share?

RWA conference

So, Romance Writers of America national conference is in a couple of weeks. Everyone's making their schedules and getting a little crazy......My suitcases will be out next week while I slowly fill them. And oh, dry cleaners.........make a note, make a note...

Anyway, I'm nominated for a RITA award this year, for my Christmas novella, The Wrong Brother. That's the RITA statue there on the left. Pretty, isn't she??

This is my seventh nomination and it's still exciting to have your book chosen as one of the best of the year. Even if you don't win, it's an amazing thing to be chosen as a finalist.

Of course, one of these years...I do want one of those statues.....
