Weekend pondering!

It's Sunday afternoon and I'm a thousand words, or less, from finishing what's called a Lust Bites for Total E-Bound. And I'm here, still flabbergasted by the number of people who came and commented on the revamped layout of my blog. I really can't believe how kind you've all been. Thank you.

This story I'm working on. It's the first one I've tackled since the holidays. It's been a thoughtful time for me. 2009 was an amazing year for me in so many ways. My work on Total E-Bound has done incredibly well. Jenna Byrnes and I have collaborated on several books that have been well accepted, and we've been planning the next couple. Quinn's Blessing is our next one, and we begin plotting that out tomorrow. Gulp. I do have to get this one done first though.

I've also looked at a number of e-publishing venues and think Noble Romance is going to be the best fit for me, for now. Jill works very hard to make sure the quality of the books she publishes stays high and that's a very good thing. There are still bumps and wobbles, but I'm sure she'll keep up the good work.

I got a release date for my third anthology title with Noble. Echoes of the Future is supposed to come out in March of this year. That's awesome news. March is also when Jenna's an my Stallion's Pride comes out through Total E. That's the last one of our Untamed Hearts Series. That was also our first attempt at working together. Wow!

Time really does fly when you've got your nose to the grindstone. LOL Okay, I've got to get going now. That story is not going to write itself. I'll be back again soon, so come back often.

Hey Jude

Cheers, Chloe

Thanks so much Chloe. I love it too. I'm just really glad I didn't screw it up. LOL

Jill does put out a quality product and she demands perfection from her authors, but she works hard too and it shows. Good luck on all your new stories. I'm especially looking forward to the new Sci-fi ones.

Jude Mason said...

Hey Pat,

That's my take on Jill too. She also tries very hard to be available for her authors too and that's huge. She might be busy, but she knows her authors are important.

Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!

Thanks for the sum up, I have only read a few from Noble and they suit me - so good for you, finding a fit there...

I am awaiting the series book from you and Jen and of course now I hear Sci-fi, I am all ears...

Have a great week my dear...

Hi E.H.,

Noble is very new, but Jill seems to be going about its growth in a very sensible way. She's determined to keep the quality high, and I love that.

Now, that sci fi thing, you'll have to be patient. I'm just now coming up with scenarios to send to my publisher for her okay. I figure I'll try to do two and see how it goes from there. Crossing toes here.
