Characters Live On!

I've been woefully deliquent in my blogging. My only excuse is that summer is hard! My daughter is a teacher and was off until last Friday, so we did lots of lunching, shopping and goofing around. Then in the afternoons I went to my part-time job in our company. Summer is our busy time, so I was very busy at work there. My life was a study in extremes these past two months.

I fear I am much better at goofing off than I am at hard work.

But just in time for the upcoming fall season, I have received a new contract for two more Brody's Crossing books. Yeah! My continuing characters will live on. The potential heroes and heroines mentioned in previous books will find love. The cattle, bison and other animals on the Rocking C will continue to be fed. My heroine in (tentatively titled) An Honorary Texan will restore the 1960s Sweet Dreams motel so visitors will have a place to stay. And best of all, everyone will get together again for the Christmas traditions, including the parade, Settlers Stroll, and chili dinner at the VFW post. I'm thrilled to have another Christmas book in 2008.

I hope your summer was great and you got more done than I did these past few months. Here's wishing we all get our deadlines met in the coming months! Best wishes from sunny, hot Texas.

The summer has gone by so quickly I can't believe it. I hope everyone enjoys these last weeks.
