February Reflections

Snow days for kids. Mountains of soggy play clothes, mittens, and muddy boots for young mothers. For those of us in our second childhoods, it's coffee, tea, or cocoa by the fireplace, a good book on the iPod, Sony, Nook, or Kindle. and sometimes the quirkiness of making an adult snow angel and photographing our pets or grandkids frolicking outside.

For me, it's margaritas and Mexican fare with girlfriends, hatching new plots with critique partners, and baking cookies (for those moments by the fireplace with my iPad and my romantic suspense of choice.

I'm also developing my website...launching soon, hopefully. And I'm staring at my new cover for my first book with Carina Press, cover done by the fabulous Frauke Spanuth. I discovered after I had my cover that Laura Phillips, a good friend from MARA (Mid-America Romance Authors) had interviewed Frauke for Novelists, Inc.


What I love about Carina is that we get to color outside the box. Instead of a heroine with amnesia, I have a hero who can only remember a phone number...hers. Problem is, someone paid for his facial reconstruction after a devastating auto accident, and now he doesn't look like himself. But to prove it?  Both will risk their lives, their careers, and the love they once had.

Hope you will join me when Memories Of You debuts,
March 21, 2011, 978-14268-9134-2. My editor (okay, on ONE...everybody bow)...Melissa Johnson. She was so great to work with...I am spoiled.


And if you can't read the full cover, the blurb says: The one man she can never forget. Problem is, he can't remember her...

How about you? How goes your frosty February?  And have I intrigued you with Memories?

Sunny/Bobbie -- I *love* the premise of your story! I will indeed look for it when it comes out. Great cover, by the way. Frauke did mine for On Her Trail and I think it's gorgeous.

So, can I come over for margaritas and Mexican food?

I love your premise, Sunny. Frauke is a goddess. I want her to do all my covers and I love yours. Can't wait to read the story.

February is a birthday month in this house. I'm guessing big sleepover and pizza and movie and lots of giggling young girls and one dazed eight year old boy :)

Loved the cover, your two leading characters and the thought of Mexican food. Feb. is hubby's birthday and I've got to brave the cold and buy theatre tickets and a gift.

Congratulations. You have had a lot of great things to reflect on in February. :)

We escaped the snow for tonight but it's still bitter cold. I'm having some coffee and switching to wine later.
Lovely cover and great blurb.

I'm glad to see so many Frauke fans and Melissa worshippers. Lol. Those two ROCK.

Thank you all for the well wishes and comments. Stay warm. And Happy Birthday to your loved ones, Toni.
