Sweet Freedom!




I finally finished camp applications, tax forms, and a whole bunch of other stuff that has been hanging over my head for weeks!

 ❊ SWEET FREEDOM!


I also had a fantastic time at the Maine RWA meeting this past weekend. What a great group of women writers. We talked about how to use reviews for good instead of e-villlllll! And I got a big surprise. Steph from Fangs, Wands and Fairydust was there, too. We finally met in person and she was a terrific help at the meeting.

If any New Englanders are looking for a writer's retreat this spring, MERWA is hosting their annual retreat May 17-18 at the Embassy Suites in Portland, Maine. Sounds really fun. Here's the linkie!

To celebrate my new-found freedom, I downloaded some festive new books.

* Spanked by the Vet by Christa Wick
* Edge by Tiffinie Helmer
* Penelope by Anya Wylde

So, I have a spanky book, an Alaskan romance, and a kooky historical. Can't wait!

Other good news...

Eloisa James gave LUCY THE WONDER WEENIE a nice shout-out on her Facebook page this weekend. She also has an adorable rescue doxie named Lucy.

LUCY THE WONDER WEENIE is on sale at both Barnes and Noble and Amazon for only $7.65. And it's still just 99 cents for the Kindle version!

Finally, I realized my hectic pace this year has resulted in stress-induced shingles and throwing out my back--twice! So I decided to slow down. I'm going to work on SWEET ADVENTURE, the next Klaus Brothers book which isn't due until Christmas 2013. That gives me plenty of time to get it written, edited, formatted, covered, and ready for action! I can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually sort of miss the Klaus family and I'm looking forward to writing about the North Pole again. Even though it's March and Starbucks no longer has their gingerbread lattes.

NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! *Penny cries*

Hope that everyone has a happy week!
Penelope
