Spring Forward

 Happy spring!!

Even though spring's a week away, in most of the US, we're springing forward today.  I feel like I've gone back in time when I lose that hour.

Speaking of going back in time....

I'm going back to some of my earliest writing this week.  A Day Late and a Bride Short, my first Silhouette Romance, is finally available as an eBook!!  Thirteen years ago, when I sent this proposal to my editor, she sent me back a note from the Senior Editor saying that with that title, she'd expected a marriage of convenience story.  My original idea wasn't that at all, but as a very newish author, I said, "That's exactly what it will be."

My editor bought the proposal.  It wasn't quite the story I intended to tell and to be honest, I wasn't sure how to write a contemporary marriage of convenience.  As someone who's been married for many years—someone who is still wildly in love with her husband—I have to confess, marriage isn't always convenient!  But I fell in love with the story and the characters!

I had so much fun going back in time with this story!  My house was loud and crazy back then...wait, it's still loud and crazy.  Maybe that just goes to show that as much as times change, they stay the same!

Oh and you can have a chance to win  a copy of A Day Late and a Bride Short (Kindle Edition) in an Amazon Giveaway!. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.See Official Rules.

Speaking of fun...I've been playing with videos again.  There's a new Cooks and Books...definitely on the book side of things this time!  And the first of my "Ask the Author" videos.

My kids would tell you that I amuse myself a little too easily!  LOL

I hope you're reading for spring! I'm heading to Barbara Vey's Readers' Luncheon in May!!  Maybe I'll see some of you there??  I'm so itching to get out to the garden again!  I'm sure there will be more Cooks and Books videos when all the fresh produce starts coming in! Do you have any fun spring plans??
