Yipeeee!!!!! It’s my first official blog day with the other six oh so deliciously wicked writers! I’m jacked! Totally jacked!
So today I’m going to hold a little contest….each person who asks me a question — now it does have to be a real question — will have their name put in my cauldron and tomorrow morning not-so-little Mel will pick the winner. The prize — I found these really neat forget-me-not note cards that I love using.
So what’s new with me? Hmmmmmm…..
Well I’ll be signing Her Eyes (www.Amirapress.com) at Walden’s in San Rafael, California next Saturday from 4-6 with Alan Jacobson. I learned about Alan when one morning, Ronn Owens, one of our local radio talk show hosts, did one of these events he does now and again where he has callers call in with topics about why they would be a fabulous guest. Then listeners get to vote on who they want to hear. Alan won and he talked about the ins and outs of publishing and his newest book The Seventh Victim about an FBI profiler. He was so fascinating to listen to I tracked him down and asked him to sign with me. Happily he agreed!
The news that has me totally jumping up and down is that Indentured Bride (www.awe-struck.net) has been chosen as a book club selection on Writers and Readers of Distinctive Romance ( http://blog.elceepublishing.com/2008/09/16/november-book-selection-1.aspx) for November. Lynda Coker, the owner is preparing a selection of discussion questions to make this a solid discussion. You can pick up a copy of Indentured Bride from Awe-struck, Fictionwise, in e or print from Amazon or write me at Regan @ Regantaylor (dot) com for an autographed copy. Of course I’ll be running a contest during the month with this great jar candle I found with layers of scents!
Nano Write is starting in just a little over a month and this year I’m going to be writing Michael’s story from Jason’s Accord (www.eXtasybooks.com). My editor fell in love with Michael, I beefed up his role in Jason’s Accord and in response to a number of readers asking he’s going to have his own story — tentatively titled Amazonia — where one of Austin Quinn’s roles from America’s Hero (www.Champagne.com) does one of his movies.
In the meanwhile I have Her Eyes two off with a Beta reader — this one has some really creepy scenes in it as well as The Photograph which has me writing the Crystal Ball — another Kelly McKenna story which, The Spell is currently out for submission.
So here it is, a slightly chilly Saturday in Northern California (my favorite weather) watching a DVD of Murder She Wrote and looking forward to some good questions and a relaxing three day weekend!
