Reflecting and Reviewing 2016

I'm a huge believer in goals. Setting, working toward, achieving, I love the entire process. So as I wind down the 2016 edition, I'm looking at different ways to make 2017 Totally-Awesome-Sauce. (Like this Monkey Lamp.) Today, I reflected on the things I've done for 2016. It's been a busy year with lots of book related travel, a real vacation, and lots of writing in between. I wrote (as of October) 284,266 words. November will add another 15K and hopefully, December, another 44K. Yes, I'm on deadline. Looking just at the first 10 months, that's approximately 28500 words a month. That breaks down to writing Fatality by Firelight, Killer Party, Hospitality and Homicide, and a proposal for Wh

Thanksgiving anticipation...

With Thanksgiving (US) on my mind today, I wanted to pop in and let you all know how thankful I am for my readers and my writing career.

(The husband did it in a nice way, which kept him from being in the dog house.) So I'm taking it one day and one meal at a time. This was a travel weekend for me.

Coming Soon - 10-11-12

Yep, it's official. I just mailed off a contract extending the Tourist Trap series to books 10, 11, and 12. I have no idea what the books will be about, except of course, Jill, and Greg, and Aunt Jackie, and Toby, and Josh, and of course, Deek. Oops, you haven't met Deek yet. But you will, next summer. I love writing the going's on in South Cove, so if you love reading them, make sure you pre-order both Hospitality and Homicide (May 17) and Killer Party (July 17). That way, my publisher knows you love South cove too. #TouristTrapMysteries #CoastalCalifornia
