Tombstone's Treasure Arrived!

My fourth book, Tombstone's Treasure: Silver Mines & Golden Saloons arrived last week. I was at home sick with a bad head cold. There is nothing like the smell of a new book from your publisher. As I turned the pages, I could hear them crackling. It's dedicated to my dad who passed away 8 years ago, so when I saw the dedication in cold hard print, I cried. Reality has a way of hitting you when you don't expect it.

Now I have to wait for the reviews to show up. My publisher did an awesome job and they are planning some radio spots for me. Check my website once in a while and I will update it with the stations and times.

I might have found a publisher to reprint Taste of Tombstone, which is in danger of becoming extinct.

I may be able to share some good news soon...waiting is always hard, but you know the old saying - good things come...

More soon.

Yes, I'm Still Here

Wow! I can't believe it's been since January that I posted. I swore I was gonna do this often. Valentine's Day just passed - it was a nice one. I got roses and chocolate, and dinner out. Okay, dinner out was a fiasco, but the restaurant paid for the meal and drinks at the bar to try and suck up. Hard to tell if we'll go back any time soon.

Some good things might be happening, but I can't share them here just now. I'll keep you posted. The kitties are still not getting along like I had hoped...we'll keep trying.

I just got a copy of a brochure from my publisher, University of New Mexico Press, and they did an awesome job! Tombstone's Treasure should be on my doorstep soon.

It's my friend's birthday today, but we are celebrating tomorrow. We're going to an antique show, wine tasting, and who knows what else with us...

I'm getting closer to finishing my latest MS (manuscript) and that's exciting. I can't wait to start the next project - it's quite fascinating and even a little creepy!

Well, I better check on dinner and save the latest changes to my MS.
