Hello my faithful fans,
Thank you so much for sticking with me while I took a brief hiatus. Working full time, attending classes, and writing novels fills my plate to overflowing, and I just needed a wee bit of a break to sort out my thoughts for Life's Blood. Now that the New Year is fast approaching, I'm anxious to get back into the swing of things and put out the next book in The Cordelia Chronicles.
As some of you may know, in October, I traveled to Romania to do some hands-on research for Life's Blood. I'm a bit of a traditionalist in my vampire views, so I couldn't resist making Romania a prominent part of my series. Many of you may also know that, while my characters are not based on anyone I know, many of the scenes in my books are based on my real life--the UK umbrella in Wanderlust is a prime example. One our first day in London in Fall 2010, my mom's umbrella broke in the middle of a rainstorm. She was forced to buy the first umbrella she saw, and it bore an enormous Union Jack on top. Anyway, these snippets of reality are fun for me to share with my readers, and I hope you enjoy the ones I will incorporate into Life's Blood from my Romanian travels earlier this year.
As we head into the holiday season, I vow to do my best to keep in touch a little more often. In return, I hope that you will spread the word about my books to anyone who is getting or gifting an e-reader this holiday season. At just 99 cents and $2.99, Breathless and Wanderlust are affordable ways to fill a Kindle!
Talk to you soon!
