I’m writing in little bits, hoping they’ll add up to big bits and trying to stay calm (and cool!) as kids run wild and temperatures hover in the high 80’s to low 90’s–not hot if you’ve air conditioning but sweltering if you’re at a computer without a breeze.
Fortunately I’m feeling more and more settled here, but not so settled that I won’t be going back to Bellevue end of August for my kids school year. That’s right. For those of you worried that I’ve moved to Hawaii permanently, that’s a no, not happening, not possible until son Ty goes to college which is 7 years from now. So until then, Baby Mac and I will be making lots of trans Pacific flights to see Surfer Ty and Ty will be making the same flights to come see us in Washington, and if you’ve a private event scheduled with me for the Fall, I will be there as I’m only in Hawaii for the summer.
Speaking of emails, I’ve been getting quite a few emails about upcoming book events for Easy–which Amazon now says it starts shipping on July 11th instead of the official release date of the 22nd–and thought I’d brief you here as well as on my events page.
While my Bellevue book launch hasn’t been scheduled yet, I do have two events in Hawaii, one this Saturday at the Aina Haina library when I speak to the local RWA chapter, and the other on August 6th at Borders at the Ward Center. I’d love to see you at either event, so if you’re in Hawaii come find me, and if you’re not in Hawaii, rest assured that I will be doing some events in Washington and California this Fall. All the details will be on my site on the Events page so keep checking back.
And finally, as many of you know, Odd Mom Out and Mrs. Perfect were also optioned and remain under serious consideration by several production companies. Due to the current economy I’m not sure if and when the project would be green lighted, but I’ve had the most amazing feedback on the books and their stories and am honored to have such talented directors and producers reading my books and discussing them so thoroughly.
Mac is waking up from his cat nap so I better rescue him from his swing. Thank you to everyone for your emails, your reviews you’ve begun posting at Amazon, and your support. You guys rock! 🙂
