Back in the saddle…aka, it's been a long time since I posted

I have no excuses, just that my life is a series of busy-ness, dealing with health issues and all the usual stuff that makes up, well…life.


The great news, I finished recording Blood Bargain, and it’s now for sale as an audiobook via Audible.com or iTunesBlood Bargain audio cover art


Soon, I’ll start recording Blood Kin, for your listening pleasure. ::g::


A lot of folks have been writing me, asking me about the fate of the Blood Lines series. I’m afraid that at this point there are no more books as Pocket isn’t continuing the series. I’m concentrating on the audiobooks right now and am contemplating various options after that. I’m actually not sure at this point. There is always the direct-to-ebook option and I have not discarded that idea at all. I just need to focus on the recordings first and then move forward.
I’m extremely heartened by these emails, though. It’s wonderful to hear from my fans and know that they love the books. So often, we writers send our work out into the aether and don’t get much feedback outside of our editors. It’s lovely to be able to correspond with our readers.


I hope you’ve all been having a great & safe summer!

Happy Holidays, Blessed Solstice to all

Home for the holidays – doesn’t that just sound GRAND? I’m spending my long weekend (4 days) in the comfort of my lovely apartment with Kit: an introvert’s dream weekend. 🙂

For my holiday dinner, I’d thought to get a spiral cut ham, only they seem to come in size large, larger and ginormous! A wee bit too much for me alone. Instead, I visited several local area shops and picked up a smorgasbord of delightful treats. Serrano ham and a variety of cheeses from Cheesetique, lovely rosemary & olive boule from Harris Teeter and for dessert, eggnog frozen custard from the Dairy Godmother. No formal meal, just a bit of a lovely nosh. There’s also wine.

Other awesome things:

Matters of the Blood - audiobook cover image Matters of the Blood is now available for purchase as an audiobook! Narrated by yours truly, it’s available via Audible.com. I’d love for you all to spread the word, especially to those of your friends who love audiobooks.

My Agatha award nominated short story, The Butler Didn’t Do It will soon be live as an eBook for Kindle. It’s currently available at Barnes & Noble and on the iBookstore for a whopping $.99! It’s a bit of a twist on the English country house mystery and was nominated for Best Short StoryButler cover

Speaking of Malice Domestic, I’ll be attending Malice 24 next spring in Bethesda. I think this will be my 12th one? I definitely credit this con with getting me started in my writing career. I met tons of awesome people and have gotten to rub elbows with brilliant writers. If you are local, don’t miss this? If you’re not local, think about attending. It’s a really great conference.

2012 will be another quiet year. Not so much traveling. Not even the usual family trip as we’re planning a big trip in 2013 to the UK. Whisky & Wales! Looking forward to that.

Happy Holidays to all of you!! What are your plans for the balance of 2011?
