So far, the blurb is as follows: Destiny is rewritten for Michael Malone, a mystically enhanced vampire, with an outcome so unexpected that everyone in his world is stunned—Michael most of all.

Have you ever pet a butterfly? Someone said the butterfly was an angel. I tend to agree. And the feeling gave me such comfort, I won't even try to put it into words. My vacation is at an end. I don't fully know what awaits Monday morning, but I'm sure it won't be pretty.

And if you want to hear what other paranormal authors have to say about current good reads, that's. March ing right along. I haven't blogged much lately, but I've sure seen a heck of a lot of snow. It's not that I don't have something to say. I'm pretty talkative most of the time.
Perhaps my muse has taken a vacation to where it's sunny and warm, not slushy and chilly.
At times, this break from writing worries me. The days are very busy right now, and I can't complain. As my son said the other day, "It'll come. Your intellectual curiosity is saturated lately. But I've been busy Life get's busier by the month.
I've been remiss with promotion, keeping up with blogs, posting updates, etc. Nothing bad; all good! Inheritance is now in the hands of my goddess of an editor. I finally let it go after many, many revisions. Now the wait begins - again I feel very blessed to be an author who can say this. The Halloween Book signing was a hoot!

Perhaps it's the end of summer that brings out mean-spirited people. I tend to look forward to autumn - cooler nights, beautiful, vibrant color - all those warm, toasty things that beg for a fire in the hearth and hand crocheted blankets.
Just when I'm settling in with a smile, out come the odd balls. I belong to several author groups. Tales of pirated e-books, publishing houses that close, and the sudden onslaught of hurtful reviews are being mentioned on a variety of blogs. As August fades away, I thought I'd share some "Author" things with you. Of course, so much coming up means the web site will have to be updated soon. My fingers are crossed and I'm praying for one particular announcement before I do that.
