"Sin" City

Did you miss me?

We went to Las Vegas with my husband on business last weekend and didn't get back until w-a-y late last night (yawn).

Since we went with the whole family, we stayed at Circus Circus and had a blast. The amusement park inside is small, but since it was during the week and not busy, the boys got to ride, and ride, and ride the little railroad rollarcoaster~

The sad part was that the wireless card for our laptop simply would not connect with the wireless service at the hotel. I felt a bit disconnected...but came back to some really great news.

I got new cover art for a 2008 release from Cobblestone Press titled Fool's Gold.

And it looks like I have a new home for The Werewolf Whisperer! I'll make a formal annoucement about it once the contract's been received and signed...but it's a relief to know it'll soon have a publisher. What it really means is I need to get cracking on writing the three sequels to it as well ~ LOL!

All the time without the internet meant I did a lot of writing. I have one final scene to write for The Vampire Oracle: Chalice and then I can type THE END on the first draft. I'm probably a little off target for hitting submit by 31 October, but it'll be close.

My next project is going to be a time's part of an idea I've been thinking about for years and all the details are finally beginning to gel. I have to have it written and submitted by the end of the year but am shooting for 15 December so that I can take a bit of a breather during the holidays and start thinking about what projects I need to tackle in 2008.

Anyway...that's what I've been up to. What about you? Have you met your goals for 2007? Are you even close?

Welcome back, Ericka!

Good to hear that you all had a great time.

Love the cover, looks awesome! Congrats.

As for the 2007 goals, yikes! I got a LOT done this year, but still wish I could've squished more into it. Still got a few things I want to finish up during the next few months, though. Starting with Nano.

Have a great weekend! :D

Yes, I did miss you.

Great cover, and congrats on a new home for WW.

Man, does Cobblestone put out excellent covers or what!!

I love hearing how busy you are, it's inspiring!

Ericka Scott said...

Glad you are on track Yolanda....Nano is always fun but I'm going to take a pass on it this year.

Glad you missed me Alice. I had to go back and read all of Mr. Al's history lessons.

Thanks Gillian...I agree about Cobblestone's covers. They are THE BEST!

I love Vegas. I'm glad you had such a great time. It doesn't hurt to take some time away from the internet. Beautiful cover! Can't wait to hear where we can get the Werewolf Whisperer...
