Heidel by April (If Not Sooner)!

Hello Royal Readers! 

For those who were impatient for the next book in The Nine Princesses Novella Series, I'm really sorry it took this long. Seriously. Really sorry.

These are not excuses (I hope) but just to give some reasons: I work at a department store during the day. I have 3 children (all boys) who need help with homework more and more. I've been struggling with some health problems. And I went through a sad period of discouragement where I felt like my life was too hectic and difficult to write a book series. So Heidel got shelved for a while and neither she nor I liked it much.

Plus, Heidel's story is considerably longer and more complicated than Maelyn orCoralina. It's actually about as long as the first 2 books combined. Which is good! But it meant a much bigger project and less time to do it in. I got a bit overwhelmed, I'm sorry to say. 

But! I finally got back on the royal steed and I humbly think this book is the best of all three. More action, more mystery, more romance, more princesses, more passion, more fun!

I'm not giving an exact release date yet, but I am shooting for sometime in March, with April at the latest. Just wanted to let you know, say I'm sorry, and I hope that some of you, at least, are on board for another Nine Princesses story.

Thanks for sticking with me! You're the best.

Real Hair Bandits!

Not happy about this at all, of course. But the irony struck me. Venezuela has real hair bandits! Stealing women's hair to sell to salons for hair extensions.

How horrible for the fair maidens of Venezuela. Hope they catch the muggers. Wish I could send Gord to go clobber 'em.

Get Offa My Laptop!

I don't exactly have the ideal writer's life. I don't have a home office or much personal space at all. We have a shared computer out in the living room and that used to be where I wrote. Until my boys got bigger....

Then the shared computer became Game Central where one of my boys was always playing. I encouraged them to do other things, like go outside, build Legos, read books, etc. But even so, one of them could always be found at the computer, gaming away, and I'd have to bully him off to get my writing done. And then they would stand right at my elbow, saying "Mommy, are you done yet?"

So I gave up the fight and bought myself a laptop last summer. And for a while that was great. Until my boys discovered this virtual game world for kids. Now when I go to the living room, there's one boy parked on the desk computer, another on the laptop, both playing separate characters in the same virtual world. They like to do it together, they say. So I sigh and say "One hour!" after which I have to wrestle away my laptop amidst wails of protest.

I could crack down and put my laptop off limits entirely. But I tend to loosen the rules during summer. Looking forward to school, quiet, and un-harassed writing time!

Book news: Maelyn audio book is now available. Three-quarters done with Heidel - I made great progress at Chuck E Cheese's yesterday! New free book promotion to be announced soon.
