A Creed in Stone Creek

Friday, May 14

Two chapters in, and I’m LOVING this book. I can’t wait for you to read it; I’m sure hoping you’re going to love it, too.

In the meantime, watch out for the next installment in the Texas McKettricks trilogy, “Garrett”, coming May 25. I’ll be in New York City then–one of my favorite places–for this year’s Book Expo America, and that’s always fun. I’ll be wining (but not whining) and dining with my beloved editor, Joan, my super-agent, Irene, and Leslee, Alana and Bridget from Truth Be Told. I’ll be doing a satellite media tour to promote “Garrett”–check your local listings, in case I’m on TV in your area. Parties, shopping (look out McKenzie-Childs and Kate’s Paperie!) and signing books will round out the week. And don’t think I’m prejudiced or anything, but the Harlequin booth is always the best one at BEA–I feel so fortunate and so proud to be published by these dynamic, inventive and forward-thinking people.

Spring has truly sprung around here, and I’m so thankful. The Canadian Wrangler set up my big “tomato tree” planter, and the starts are in. I actually have two, but I’m putting green peppers and zuchini in the other. All the plant pots have been brought in from storage on a high shelf in the garage, and I’ll be filling them with all manner of color this weekend, the splashier the better.

My peonies are set to pop open at any minute. I’ll post a photo here and on Twitter when they do.

Gotta go wake Sadie-beagle up now. She’s snoring away on my bed, but this is an exercise day and Jenni will be arriving soon to take her to the trainer’s.

Me? I’ll be writing, messing with art supplies, and standing over the peonies chanting, “Bloom! “Bloom!”

See you Monday.
