And the week begins with a vengence. I've been having trouble sleeping, rotten colds to that to me sometimes, anyhoo, I was up and roaring around at some ungodly hour this morning checking email. Oh first got the coffee going, you really don't want to talk to me before I've had my coffee. There in my email was a lovely surprise. I'd done an interview with May from MayReviews about a month ago and she'd sent me a message saying it was live and for me to go have a look see. What a lovely way to begin any day. If you'd like to read a little more about me, go to:
It was great fun doing it and I'm thrilled to be up on Mays site.
Oh what else have I been up to? Yes, I finally sent off the sequel to The Deal to Venus Press. Another Deal, the second in a three part series that I hope will be as well received as the first one was. This takes place in a small coastal villiage in England, Whitby, where there's an Abby that just cries out for more vampire history. Bram Stokers 'Dracula' was filmed there and after doing some research, I can see why. I'll keep you all posted on when that one's coming out.
It's been quiet around here though. Husband has gone off with his dad for a week of visiting relatives. I'm not sure how much his dad will remember now, he's getting on in years and his faculties aren't as sharp as they once were, but it was something he truly wanted to do. I miss hubby and can't sleep well alone, sigh!
Oh, the contest is all ready to go. If you'd like a peak at the picture I'll be giving to some lucky person, click on the link here:

I hope to see some of you there. There's probably tons I'm missing out, but I'm off to get more done on this story that's taken over. It was supposed to be a short story for an anthology, but it's grown all out of proportion. I whined and moaned to my publisher, she laughed and told me to just get busy and write it. No sympathy... Jeeze!
Have a great day everyone, and I'll see you soon.

*** International On-line Halloween Costume Party!***
Where and when:* It's to be hosted by ebooklove on October 30th from 9 AM to 3 PM est. It's early so that our European friends can come! (For them it'll be late afternoon into the evening.) Cupid Library Reviews is advertising the event from their website in Germany. Click to join ebooklove
*What we'll do at the party:* 6 authors will each spend an hour each entertaining you with their excerpts, conversation and contests.
*The treats:* Each has a Halloween story that will be released from their various publishers in October, and each will be giving away a copy -- plus other prizes!
*The trick:* To enter the contest you need to send a picture of yourself in costume to Cyndi Redding! Use either her e-mail (for digital) or snail mail address (for hard copy.) Both can be found on her contact page. If you're one of the six winners, you'll get one of the Halloween books! Oh, and your picture will be posted on her website in her gallery! Your picture in any kind of costume can be from a long ago Halloween or Carnival, or you can dress up and take a picture for the occasion. Whatever you'd like to send in for the contest is fine.
It should be lots of fun! Oh, by the way, Cyndi as well as some of the others will make an appearance in costume too! It's only fair.
