I was so happy to visit Amira'website today and see Deceived listed among the releases coming soon. This is the story idea I had one morning over the holidays and just couldn't stop writing until it was done. The release date is April 12.

While I was over at Facebook and Twitter updating some images, my daughter thought she'd be helpful and remove the protective plastic from the screen of my phone. She'd removed the plastic from our router yesterday and was praised for it so I guess she thought she'd keep the ball rolling. Fortunately, I have more covers, but as anyone who has ever placed one of these covers, you know it's not easy. I do wonder why her helpfulness never seems to extend to her picking up her toys.
If you've been watching my Works in Progress page, you'll notice that I removed one of the names from the list. It's going to be published with Amira. The title will be Deceived. More details to come.

I've been writing, writing, and writing some more. I've had lots of new ideas. My last story idea came to me one morning over the holidays. I woke up and there it was. The idea was pretty firm within minutes but it took me a few days to work out some of the details. The more I thought about it, the more excited I became with the story idea. I completed the story last week. Since then, I've been proofreading and adding a few more details, but for the most part, I’m satisfied with the story.
I've also been reading lots and it occurred to me that I have several types of stories that I like that I will buy again and again despite knowing that I will encounter a similar plot. One of those is the idea of friends falling in love. I can't resist a marriage of convenience that becomes more. Or the story of a woman who has an affair with a man and later conceals the resulting pregnancy. (Of course, they get back together when he finds out after a delicious show of male fury.) There are more plots I adore, but still, you'd think it would get dull and that I'd be looking for something different. Somehow it never does and these remain my favorite themes.
