Drum roll please!

I have been working on a super-secret (not really), hilarious, fun, adorable, inspiring, and humbling project for the last six months. For some kooky reason I decided to write a children's book. I was lucky enough to find an incredibly talented artist--Sara Pulver--who was also interested and shares my same quirky sensibilities. Her paintings for this book have brought me to tears on more than one occasion. We will be self-pubbing the print book with Lulu, and I will let you all know when it's out. Definitely before Christmas, hopefully a lot sooner!

Speaking of Christmas, for some insane reason I have THREE books on the docket which I am attempting to publish before holiday time.

(Yep, I got those crazy eyes going right now).

Anyhoo, LUMBERJACK IN LOVE is Book #1 and it's already out and doing extremely well. (My new favorite quote from Goodreads is this..."a good book low on the angst, and high on the cute.") What a great description! That's just how I like my romance novels.

Book #2 is LUCY THE WONDER WEENIE, a wonderful children's book illustrated by Sara Pulver and written by my alter ego, Nina Clark. It's the story of Lucy, a black-and-tan miniature dachshund who eats some magic beans and turns into a superhero. (Modelled after my very own super heroic doxie Lucy!) Sara's artwork is nothing short of magnificent. (See cover above! SOOOO AWESOME!)

Book #3 is SWEET INSPIRATION, the first book in the Klaus Brothers Series. I have the rights back from Wild Rose, and will be self-pubbing it this holiday season.

All of this means I will be not be blogging as frequently. But I will be drinking frequent martinis.

Coming up next week....a big bloggy celebration for LUMBERJACK IN LOVE. We'll be discussing favorite beardy dudes and giving away fun lumberjack-inspired gifts.

See you soon!
