Getting in the car this morning, my teenagers and I caught part of a news cast. "...cocks roaming the street." I have no idea why or where these cocks are roaming or what the rest of it said because we were laughing too loudly to hear it before my son popped in Flogging Molly for our morning commute.

If anyone else caught this broadcast, please fill me in! I'm sure they were talking about roosters on the loose, but my mind automatically jumped to disembodied penises wandering the streets. Some in little suits and ties, others with piercings and studded cock rings. And the one little depressed one flopping around, all flaccid.

At least it made for a humorous drive.

Gotta start somewhere…

I’ve had this blog set up since…August? So, five months later, how about a first post?

Back in August, I submitted my first manuscript to Dreamspinner Press. A short while later A Simple Romance was accepted. I’ve been mostly in denial since then. Last week my denial took a serious blow when I got my first batch of edits. It was overwhelming and, at the same time, a wonderful experience. I still feel like I owe the poor soul that got saddled with my manuscript something more than a heartfelt thank you. She had her work cut out for her and did a fantastic job. The day I returned my edits to them was the day I got my final cover art. Denial is officially over. I’ve got a book coming out sometime in March and I have the gorgeous cover to prove it!

I’m still not sure what I’ll be doing on here. Most likely I’ll end up posting little free reads and the occasional recipe. My goal is a weekly update. Let’s see how that works out.
