It's August Already

... and L.A. feels rather like the weather I grew up with back east: hot and humid.  Only problem is that it's actually pretty dry here still despite the humidity in the air.  Hard to believe that a lot of us are looking forward to seeing whether El Nino really appears this winter and brings us some rain--even though it's not expected to end the drought.

I'm still not entirely back in my usual groove since returning from my trip to RWA National and to see grandkids.  I also gave a talk at the San Joaquin Sisters in Crime last weekend in Fresno, which took up a couple of days--for a very enjoyable reason.  Great group!

So now I should be back to writing, and I am--or at least editing the beginning of my third Superstition Mystery so I can finish the draft.  But at the same time I've been working on some administrative things that also occupy some time.  I have my possible new website maintainer narrowed down to a couple of final choices and believe I know who I'll choose. Plus, I need to finish the details necessary to get two more of my backlist books up as ebooks.

It's all good, though.  I did happen to recall that I hadn't opened my personal law email account for a while and wondered if I'd had any old contacts clamoring after me with projects.  When I opened it I had a lot of junk mail there, but not too many personal emails and none that made me regret having my law license officially inactive.  Being a full time writer--and all it entails--works fine for me.

Enough blogging for the moment.  I do have a blog tour and other blogs scheduled for the publication of my second Superstition Mystery, KNOCK ON WOOD, in October and also have my seventh Alpha Force book in my Harlequin Nocture paranormal romance series to publicize since CANADIAN WOLF--my fortieth published novel!--is a September release.  Plus, I've another regularly scheduled blog to post in a couple of days.

I think it's time now to return to my editing!

Wow, your fortieth book! That is so impressive. I admire how you manage it all.
