My apologies for being MIA lately but it's been a busy spring with traveling, working, commission work for my consulting firm, and general shenanigans. But I did want to drop in and introduce the newest member of the Wilson household.
For our fifth wedding anniversary, the dear hubby suggested that we adopt a new kitty as a playmate for Watson. Honestly it was the best gift he could have possibly given me knowing that he is merely tolerant of my cat lady tendencies. He disagreed slightly with me regarding Huck being the best gift ever though. He said he would have preferred to get me a purple gun. Maybe for six next year?
On the writing front, it's the usual two steps forward, three steps back. I've been working on "A Scandalous Bargain" lately. Interestingly enough I had a sudden spurt of creativity and re-wrote a section and added a scene which brought my page count up to fifty...so a quarter of the way there? Woo!
I'm also continuing to brainstorm on "Gaiety Girl". It will get there eventually, I am sure. I would like to visit London this fall (dreaming big, I know) and get into the mood for both "A Scandalous Bargain" and "Gaiety Girl". We'll see. Maybe I could sell a kidney?
Other than that, I've been preoccupied with reading and writing reviews for the Historical Novel Society. There are some excellent novels coming out this year so keep a look out for my reviews in the July edition of the Society's newsletter and online. I will run another giveaway for some of my ARCs later this week, but folks, you've got to comment, OK? It's not hard, I promise.
Happy reading (and writing)!
