Hoyt Manor is abloom with violet-purple crocuses–despite Darla‘s tendency to want to gallop through my flower garden. Hopefully when more things start sprouting she’ll stay out–although I’m not holding my breath.
I just sent back the galleys for Thief of Shadows. Whew! The galleys (printed pages that show the layout of the finished book) are the last step I have to go through to finish the book. It’s a lovely feeling to know that a book is finally all done. If you’re a reviewer, you should be getting an arc (Advanced Reader Copies) soon.
Meanwhile, I’m hard at work writing Lord of Darkness, the fifth book in the Maiden Lane series, which will be out February 2013. And! I’ve just heard that all three books in the Princes Trilogy: The Raven Prince, The Leopard Prince, and The Serpent Prince will soon be made into audio books, with a release date of February 2013 as well. This means all of my books will be available in audio book!
Finally, some website updates: Check out my Books of the Month for January and February, I’ve posted an article about Lad, the dog from Scandalous Desires, and I have a new Contest prize up for March if you haven’t already joined one of my newsletters.
