Monday Mishmash 10/22/12

Happy Monday! Here's my short mishmash of thoughts with an announcement:

1. 3 novellas with Swoon Romance  If you missed the announcement on Facebook on Friday, I've signed on with Swoon Romance to write three novellas. The first book in the GAME. SET. MATCH. HEARTBREAK series is titled LOVE ALL and it will be releasing in January 2013. Add it on Goodreads. Here's the blurb and cover:



Seventeen-year-old Meg Flannigan wasn’t very lucky at love. In sophomore year, her idiotic boyfriend dumped her by making out with another girl in front of her locker. Ouch! Now a senior, and with a little more self-confidence, Meg catches the eye of not one, but two guys at school. Lucky! Both attend her tennis matches, vie for her attention, and are each gorgeous in their own way. So what’s the problem? Meg has already chosen one of them, and the one waiting in the sidelines will do anything to change her mind. She’s enjoys the attention right up until it’s her heart that’s caught in the middle, and she risks losing both. Can Meg Love All, or will choosing be her undoing? LOVE ALL is a debut contemporary Romance novella from Kelly Hashway.

2. Edits  I'm deep in edits for Stalked by Death, book two in the Touch of Death series. I'm also editing for clients. My eyes are killing me.

  4. Me too! Cute model on the cover. This looks like a really fun genre and format to write--I heard these "pocket" novellas are really popular in the UK and I'm excited to see them become a fad in the US. I can see it taking off! Congrats on the deal again and staying on the edge ;)

  30. You already know that I am over the moon, actually I'm swooning for you! Me, I am buried in writing. I love it though, every moment of it. I have so little time for other things, but I'm passed caring. The only things that come ahead of writing is my family, after that I'm selective. Congrats, I know how hard you worked to live your dream.
