End-of-summer news

computer on table under fall leavesSummer’s over—I hope yours was great!—and my boys are both back at school, my dog is moping around because her buddies are gone, and I finally finished the first (and second) draft of book 4 in my Men of Steele series.

I’m so excited to get Kurt and Caitlyn’s story out there! (Probably January by the time it gets through rounds of editorial, cover art, etc.) I love this couple as much as my readers, but for some reason their story has been the most difficult to write, with several false starts over the last couple of years.

If you’re on my romance newsletter list, you’ll hear from me a few times between now and January with some sneak peeks and maybe a special request.

Book 4 has pretty much been my sole focus for the last two months, but for my Scrivener folks, I’m also working on some new courses—the transition course will be free—and maybe a book. If you use Scrivener, you probably know that version 3 is coming (for Mac this year, and Windows in 2018). It has some really cool updates and features that I can’t talk about yet, but if you’re curious, definitely check out Literature & Latte’s posts on the topic at http://www.literatureandlatte.com/blog/.

If you want to find out when I have new offerings, be sure to sign up for my Scrivener newsletter, or check back here from time to time (you can also subscribe to this blog in the right-hand sidebar at the bottom).

The only other new thing with me is that I got a haircut and it came out much too short (chin length instead of shoulder length, ouch). But it feels good and dries quickly, so there’s that.

Have a wonderful autumn (or spring, if you’re down south)!

I’m joining Writer Unboxed

NEWS on typewriter keyboard

About three years ago—wow, time flies—I wrote a guest post about Scrivener for the Writer Unboxed (WU) website. In case you haven’t heard of it, Writer Unboxed has a regular spot on the Writer’s Digest “101 Best Websites for Writers” list.

Well, I chatted with cofounder Therese Walsh a couple of weeks ago at the WD conference, and we got to talking and…

I’m excited to announce that starting September 16th, I’ll become a quarterly contributor to the site, writing about—what else?—Scrivener. 🙂

I’ll be sure to let you know when my first post comes out. Meanwhile, if you’ve never visited, you might want to check out all of the WU greatness.

By the way, at Kiss and Thrill this week I wrote (and posted lots of pictures) about some of the reasons I’m loving summer. Check it out and feel free to share what you like about the hot season. Enjoy the rest of yours!
