Happenings....

Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted since August 31st!  But then again, I can't believe that it's the 13th of Septembe already. When you are under a deadline, time really flies....

I'm serious....you need more...and it goes faster! Good news is, I'm in the final polishing stages of the manuscript and will easily meet my October 1st deadline.

In addition to that, I was contacted by Standard to write a short story that will appear in their December 2013 issue. I have accepted the offer because I really enjoy writing short stories/features as much as book length manuscripts. It's quite a challenge to tell an engaging story in 850 words. So, now I have another deadline to meet!

Next week I leave for the ACFW conference in Dallas, TX. By chance, my friend and best selling author Mary Coneally is on the same flight. YAY! Someone to chat with in airport! I'm taking my camera and plan to post some pictures on my blog when I get back. This is quite a large event, so I should have many pictures to choose from.

When I get back from smoozing with other authors and editors, I'll get right back to work on my short story and historical chapters, that my agent and editor are patiently waiting for!
