Happy Thanksgiving!!

Wishing a Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers. I know there's not a whole lot to be thankful for this year, but try to focus on the positives in your life, at least for this one day. Aside from cooking that turkey, I have a rather relaxing day planned. No company, just my husband and three sons. I'm taking today off from writing projects, too. I already surpassed my November goal anyway. More on that later. Whatever free time I have when not cooking, will be spent reading a good book.

Just give thanks for what you have and hopefully things will get better for all of us soon.

Another TWRP contract!!

I just sent off my fourth contract with The Wild Rose Press. This one's for my short story titled Angel of My Dreams, which will be part of an American Civil War romance anthology.

I'm really excited about this one, because members of my critique group have written the other stories.

I've talked about this story before, but to give a reminder, this one's about a present day Civil War reenactor, who falls in love with the ghost of a Civil War nurse.

Working On Something New

I've started the first draft of my first ever science fiction romance this week and have already completed the first 6030 words.

After writing historical and paranormal/historical, writing sci-fi just feels like fun. That's not to say I'll stop writing those other genres, because they were a lot of fun too. It's just that switching my gears brings out a fresh feeling to my writing.

What do all of you out there think about switching genres? Do you think it's a good thing for writers to stretch their wings?

November Goals

About time I post my writing goals for November. Since I'm in the middle of galley proofs and edits for Erin's Rebel and Confederate Rose, I'm only listing one goal for this month.

1) Start first draft of my new science fiction romance, Moons of Cynara.
My goal is to write the first 20,000 words this month.

Be back at the end of the month to let you know how I did.

Monthly Goals

Well, I managed to meet my October goals, one by a hair.

1) Edit, proofread and submit Sweet Redemption, my new vampire story.
I've done this and am just waiting to hear back from my editor.

2) Finish outline for Moons of Cynara, my first science fiction romance.
Also finished. I actually didn't finish until November 1st, but it's close enough.

Be back with my November goals.
