I guess it's time to start the official countdown...My new book, House of Secrets, comes out in April, which is less than a month away. I just got my first look at the cover, which looks good even though it's very much a standard "modern romance" format. Will I be a complete geek and look for it on the shelves of my local Barnes & Noble? Yes, I will. Will I be an even bigger geek and ask someone to take a picture of me in front of the aforementioned shelf? Very likely.
I'm working on another book proposal, in between juggling other projects. I'm finding the wide variation in deadlines somewhat dizzying. I write pieces for the Web and see them posted a day or two later. I write a magazine story that gets published a few months after I turn it in. But I wrote the proposal for House of Secrets almost two years ago! I've almost forgotten all the twists and turns. (OK--not really. I did so much revising and rewriting that I could have recited certain passage by heart last fall.)
More info to come as we get closer to the pub date.
