I’m on TV in a couple of hours, so I should be spiffing myself up. However, I wanted to write this blog and my morning pages first, so I’m sitting at my laptop. (I need to find an Apple store because this thing keeps shutting down for no apparent reason.)
I’m in Salt Lake City
My good friend Leslee Borger is coming in today. What a pleasure it will be to spend time with her. We’ll be talking about Harlequin’s plans for publishing and promoting the Creed books, my new trilogy (February, March and April) and just generally having a good time. Leslee is a hoot, and a cowgirl-after-my-own-heart.
I just left Oklahoma, and I’ve got to tell you, I was so impressed with that place and it’s history, not to mention the friendly down-home people, that I’m planning on setting some books there. Maybe I’ll come up with a new family, but I think the Oklahoma Creeds has a certain ring to it. Carol Smith from Nancy Berland’s office (they do personal PR for me) schlepped me all over town–we went to the Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Hobby Lobby, and Coldwater Creek! As you can see, there was some goofing off mixed in there with the research! We also had lunch at Toby Keith’s restaurant, and that was definitely a cowgirl’s kind of joint.
Time to write those Morning Pages. Thanks for buy “The Rustler” in such numbers, ladies and gentlemen. I’ve had a peek at the cover for Gideon’s story, “The Bridegroom”, and all I’ve got to say about that is YUMMO.
