Tomorrow I get to speak at the Los Angeles Romance Authors’ chapter meeting as one of the folks who received a contract in 2010. I’m excited – it’s taken me long enough to get there – but I’m also conflicted about the time it’ll take, as I need to complete the second pass of edits soon.

Once I managed to get through the first pass of edits and all the stuff my editor pointed out that needed changing, all has gone well. I’m now tweaking the relationships, the tone of voice, smoothing out the grammar – few story changes at this point, so it should go much faster. Got about 30 pages done in the car on the way home from Carlsbad, where hubby and I had a romantic get-away at the Pelican Cove Inn Bed and Breakfast. A fabulous place!

My posting will be irregular from now through the end of the year…lots of holiday and writing madness. But I promise I’ll come back strong in January.

May your Christmas be happy and bright, with those you love safe around you; and may your New Year bring all good things to you and yours.
