A FEW THINGS...
 
 
First off, I want to congratulate Amy D. of Gentry, Arkansas for winning my Spring Giveaway Extravaganza! She posted a pic of her prize package on Facebook, so I think she's pretty excited about receiving it!
Thanks also to my new webmistress, Carol. My newsletter and its sign up form are functioning with style.
 
Secondly, Amazon & Barnes and Noble are running a sale on all the books in my Cursed Princes series! Kindle & Nook versions of my full-length novels are $1.99 Novellas are only .99 cents.
If you haven't read any of my books yet, now is a great time!
 
Finally, I just tried my first mint julep and let me say, I'm obsessed. Nothing is more refreshing on a spring day. Okay, I may not be at the Kentucky Derby or in the south at all, but I love sipping this delicious beverage on my porch while I watch the sun go down.
 
Enjoy this classic recipe!
 
 
To highball glass or silver Julep cup, add minted simple syrup, then 1 cup crushed ice, bourbon, and splash of water. Add enough of remaining ice to almost fill glass. Stir well and garnish with mint sprig.

I just registered for my very first Romance Writer's of America National Conference!
 
Since California is a hop, skip, and a jump away from where I live, I'll be loading up my car and driving to breezy San Diego this July. (Who wouldn't want to escape the brutally hot weather in Arizona that time of year!)
 
Besides offering incredible craft workshops and revered guest speakers, RWA conferences are also opportunities for romance writers to connect with their wonderful readers. I will be signing at the big Literacy Autography Event on Wednesday, July 13 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Proceeds for anyone purchasing a book will go to various literacy awareness charities.
Win, win!
Hope to see you there!
 
 
 Meanwhile, I just sent off two new manuscripts to my fabulous literary agent. The first book is a sultry historical romance that will kick off a new series for me. The other is a chilling psychological thriller in the vein of The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl. This one was written under the pen name Gwen London.
Wish me luck as my agent shops them around!

Hope your spring is delightful. I'd love to hear what you've been up to...
