Whew. Just sent off the revisions to Book 3 to my editor last night. I promised myself I was going to sleep for a week, but who am I kidding with that? Instead, I’m headed off this evening to meet fellow Chicago author Beth Kery for a drink (or two, more likely). We’re checking out a new wine bar and celebrating the release of her latest book, Sweet Restraint. And I’m celebrating not having to work until 10pm every night. (Yeah!) At least, not until I get sucked into Book 4…
In other news, I thought I’d mention that Practice Makes Perfect received an Honorable Mention amongst all genre-based fiction at the Hollywood Book Festival. The aim of the festival is to “celebrat[e] books that deserve greater recognition from the film, television, game and multimedia communities.” Very exciting– I’m honored to have PMP included as part of such an event!
So now that I have some breathing room, it’s time to catch up on all my reading and movie-watching. I’m debating whether I can sneak out and see “Star Trek” without my husband. (Shh… don’t tell him I said that, I’m going to say I saw “The Proposal.”) On the reading front, I recently started “The Spymaster’s Lady” by Joanna Bourne and am really enjoying it.
Lastly, Book 3 may have a cover and a title… I saw a mock-up just today and while nothing’s final (so I can’t say more yet) I think the art department at Berkley did a fantastic job. Can’t wait to be able to share it!
