Age and Inspiration...

First, Happy Birthday to me!

Okay, so I have been hard at work writing on two manuscripts at the same time. I don't have a name for this series, but I have been keeping in the back of my mind. Of course, they all have the prerequisite Irishmen in them. Some women prefer a man in a kilt, I prefer one with a brogue. Not that there isn't something to be said for a nice pair of knees :)

I am also working on two books at the same time, something I've never done before and I find quite challenging. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, especially someone who is a newbie, but the process does work in this case since the books are tied together. And, of course, both of them have an Irishman in them.

RWA was last week and though I didn't attend it does always have me thinking about the past conferences that I've attended. It's rather ironic that I went to so many of them before I sold and now that I have I haven't participated. Also, I have the propensity for attending conferences that are far away and forgoing the ones that are closest such as Florida and Atlanta. I've been to New Orleans and Dallas twice. I'm headed to Dallas again next year when THE THREE TRUTHS OF KATIE TALMADGE is due out from Wings. This was the first book that I sold and it will be coming out on a book on disk format and in trade paperback. This book was written in a mad rush of inspiration. The proposal was written in less then 20 minutes as a thunderstorm was approaching my house. I wrote frantically to get the words onto the computer before I had to shut it down. I also wrote the manuscript in about 2-2 1/2 months. It was a fast one. But the idea of writing a paranormal Cinderella type story appealed to me. It was originally written with the Soulmates Line for Harlequin in line, but was lost in the melee of editors offices until the line had already announced it demise. Still, it was a story worthy of a home and I found one for it with Wings.

Okay, got to shuffle off to work! Hope you all have a great day!
