Start crossing those fingers—my latest proposal went to my editor last week. It’s another witch-themed book. This one is set in the South, written in third person (gasp), and I can’t tell you how much I love it. I adore these characters and really hope my editor wants it so I can finish the story. I think, maybe, I was a Southern Belle in a former life—that setting is so much fun to write.
A few weeks ago, if you might recall, I was a guest at Chick Lit and Chocolate. Another guest was a real-life aura-reading psychic. Lovely woman who seemed to nail the personalities of everyone who spoke to her. I wasn’t planning on asking anything too specific, but couldn’t help myself. If she’s correct, the witch books are going to do really well (I hope she’s right!). But when Judy Cross (from Foul Play Books) asked her if I was going to win the Agatha Award, the psychic looked thoughtful for a moment, then basically said no. LOL. She was very kind about letting me down easy. Hey, at least I don’t have to get a speech ready.
Mr. W is a big fan of duck sauce with stir-fry and certain chicken dishes. That’s not the disturbing part. The disturbing part is the sauce we bought at Kroger (don’t judge) claimed to be authentic, blah, blah. Then, on closer inspection we discovered the sauce is made in...New Jersey. LOL. Just doesn’t seem right.
And just because...
A picture of the day. It’s an older shot, but it's one of my favorites.
