Great news! Just got word from my editor, Pam, that Diamond in the Snow is done! No more edits. So that one is now off to the proofers...and a load off my mind.

Why? Because I've already started on the next one. Actually, I had two stories started from last spring, both of which I set aside when the deadline for the Valentine's Anthology loomed before me. Then, while on vacation with my family, I started another. So many ideas, so little time!

I sent all three to my editor and told her I couldn't decide which one I wanted to take further. She read through them, told me the 'snowstorm' one and I was off. Wrote six pages today. I love it when the characters want to talk to each other. Conversation is the most fun thing to write above all else. In fact, I know I sometimes sacrifice description in favor of conversation...that's why I have an editor who constantly reminds me to "paint the scene."

Hmmm...need to find a title for the new story. It will be a full-length novel with tons of romance and sexual tension. As it gets going, I'll tell you more about it.

Till then,
play safe!
