Short Post

It’s a very short blog today. I hope we didn't have a theme this week. I am hopelessly behind on reading emails and blogs.

I finished rewriting my manuscript for my sixth book earlier in the week. Then it was just proofreading, or so I thought. Proofreading turned into tweaking and then to a little rewriting.

In the midst of it, the first copy of You Better Knot Die arrived. It's my first hardcover and it's beautiful.

I am in the home stretch. I just have only 37 more pages to go over. Then I’ll type in the recipes. They’ve already been tried and tasted. The crochet patterns are written, but all over post it notes and index cards. I need to decipher them and type them in. Then I’m done. And I attack the mountain of laundry and 1700 emails.

The winner of Dirty Rotten Tendrils is Kay. Please email me your snail mail address at and I’ll send it off to you.

Congratulations on your new book You Better Knot Die! I see that it's now available on Amazon for pre-order in Kindle format as well as the hardcover.

Congrats also on almost finishing your current edits. Maybe you can sneak in something fun to celebrate in addition to going through a mountain of e-mails and laundry!

Thank you planner. I went through 4 pages before I started falling asleep at the computer.

When I'm done there's definitely going to be some fun.

The theme is romantic encounters, which you had with your new book! Congratulations, Betty!

Betty Hechtman said...

Thanks, Camille. Yes, you could say I did have a romantic encounter with the copy of You Better Knot Die. I hugged it.
