Since I started this thread, I'm going to use it to brag about something I can't do too publicly. (It will be buried here... lol)

My alter ego is a finalist in the Passionate Plume!! It meant SO MUCH to me that I can write under a different name, in a new voice, and in another genre and people still enjoy my work. I was absolutely floored!!

Thanks!! I'm doing much better than I ever could have imagined or hoped, and I'm so very grateful to everyone who's held my hand each step of the way!!

Just sent the first book in a new series to my agent last week, so holding my breath to see what she thinks of it!! It's a futuristic romance -- think Falling Skies meets Guess Who's Coming to Dinner.
