Excerpt time!

Hey all! Good news, if you’re waiting with baited breath for the release of Secrets of the Lotus. Lyrical Press, Inc., my publisher, has posted an excerpt. You can read it here: Awesome Excerpt. I totally expect you to be online to download Secrets at midnight on July 5, 2010!

In other news, I had the extreme pleasure of attending two excellent workshops at the New Bern Literary Symposium on Saturday. My thanks to the Craven Arts Council and the organizers of the Symposium. It was so wonderful to have the opportunity to attend such high quality workshops taught by super-fantastic writers here in my own backyard! Speaking of which, a special shout out to the multi-talented, charming and extremely funny (!!!) Ben Watford and Diane Merlin, whose grasp of both the ability to write romantically and the reality of the publishing industry taught me so much. Thank you both for your time and shared wisdom.

Best to all of you, and may you have a fantastic week!
