I’ve decided to ignore the fact that I haven’t posted on this blog in ten months. No big deal! I had my reasons (break-up and MFA, hello!). I’m sitting in my yard listening to Astrud Gilberto, sipping a delicate rosé, working on my new romance novel, and trying to catch up on all the romance news I missed during my hiatus. Whoah! July, August, and September will be the best months ever because Tessa Dare’s much lauded debut series hits shelves. I’ve pre-ordered mine–how about you? And what’s this? Debuts from so many other amazing writers: Courtney Milan’s Proof by Seduction from HQN in January 2010, Sarah Lindsey‘s Promise Me Tonight from Signet in February 2010, Maggie Robinson‘s Tempting Eden from Berkley in summer 2010!
There is so much to be thankful for right now. Sun filtering through the bamboo above my head; plump raspberries and rainier cherries to pick for breakfast; my friends who are achieving the success they deserve; the drive, passion, and time to write romance again; frilly gingham sundresses; mojitos with lavender-infused simple syrup.
Are you feeling as summery and full of love as I am? I hope so!
