I finally gave in to necessity and have buried myself under a snow of writing. I turned in the sequel to Lone Star Trail, A Ranger's Trail, around the 4th of July.

Then I persevered through writing my next, and as it turns out, my last book for Heartsong Presents. The bookclub which gave me my start is closing at the end of the year; I'm not certain what form my book, Pride's Fall, together with the other two titles from Carla Gade and Susan Davis in our "Love in Four Corners" collection.

But . . . now that book is finished. I am taking a week's vacation. (I slept about 30 hours in 2 days' time. Does that give you an idea how tired I was?!)

My publicist tells me I should get my copies of Lone Star Trail sometime during the third week of August! Coming oh so soon!

River North Fiction (the imprint of Moody Press) is doing things right for the Texas Trails series. We even have our own website! Check out Look at the trailer while you're there . . . it's amazing. Wande is radiant and perfect!

Reviews of Lone Star Trail are popping up all over the place:

I even have my first-ever review in Romantic Times (4 stars!)

Can you tell I'm excited?!

I look forward to connecting back with my fellow authors, readers, and friends.
