we are into a new year and I’m still scratching my head over all the
things I didn’t accomplish last year. So I’m going to view this month
as ‘fresh start’ month and move on. There’s lots of things on the
planning board and I hope you’ll join in the fun.
First, a street team. That’s right, you heard it here. Working on
the details now, but know there will be special prizes that members only

an editor tapping her red liner impatiently as I write this. Fingers
crossed for a March release, or re-release as this will be. Can you say
Hot? Yep, a Contemporary Romance that sizzles…in between the laughs of
And I have a column debuting at Night Owl Reviews Newsletter this
month! Behind the Scenes will focus on various individuals in the
publishing world other than authors. The kick-off will feature a
publisher of not one, but three publishing houses. Any guesses?
