Happy May, Readers! In spite of the goofy weather we’ve had this spring, and it feeling more like winter on many days, the calendar continues to flip and here we are well into the month of May. The last round of snow we saw just last week really made me want to get the Ground Hog on the phone and give him a piece of my mind. Just what the heck was he thinking when he said spring would come early this year? Boy, was he ever way off base. But, I guess he has only about a 39% accuracy rate, and he is just a rodent, after all.
But regardless of Mother Nature and Punxsutawney Phil’s disagreements over the weather, Old Man Time insists on doing his own thing. And whether we’re ready for it or not, the 2012-13 school year is winding down and the kids will soon be free for the summer.
For the past month or so we’ve been pulling double duty around our place—enjoying all the end-of-the-year activities like field trips, spring concerts, track meets, and archery club, but we’ve also been gearing up for the horse show season. We’ve logged quite a few hours in the saddle already, and have had multiple 4-H horse practices with our local club.
It’s been a hectic few weeks and I’ve been slowly checking things off the schedule, each one bringing a little sigh of relief. One more down, one less to go.
In between it all, I still have to find time to write. Some days are easier than others. Some days I make great progress and others not so much so. Kind of depends on how tired my brain is feeling after spending a day with a group of rowdy 5th graders on a bus for my son’s field trip, or sitting in the rain to watch my daughter burn up the track at the elementary track meet!
But, I’m excited to tell you that if you’ve read COWBOY FLING and if you enjoyed it and have been waiting to find out if Paige’s sister, Dorie, fulfills her side of their fantasy bet, you don’t have much longer to wait. I’m in the process of finishing COWBOY AFFAIR (working title) right now and, hopefully, with a little luck Dorie and Vin’s story will be available before the end of 2013, or at the very latest, early 2014. Trust me; Vin Sheridan is one big, tough cowboy you’ll be drooling over. At least I know I am as I write!
If you haven’t read COWBOY FLING, you might consider giving it a try. You can find COWBOY FLING on sale at Ellora’s Cave, Barnes & Noble and at Amazon. It’s a great bargain at all three sites.
And if you have read COWBOY FLING please share your thoughts on the book. I’m always interested in reader feedback. I’m also curious to know what you like and don’t like about cowboys. And in your eyes, what makes a cowboy super hot!
In the meantime, with just one full week of school left, I’d best kick it in gear so I can get COWBOY AFFAIR done as promised! Have a great May and I’ll see you back here in June during the Authors By Moonlight 2nd Annual Summer Solstice Bash! A Kindle Paperwhite will be up for grabs so, don’t miss out!
