When I wrote a newspaper column, Window Over the Sink, I used to always end it that way. “Till Next Time,” waving when I typed it. I used to frown at it sometimes, wondering if it should be ‘Til Next Time, and occasionally an editor would change it to that. But I still used Till. I still waved when I typed it.
I’ve loved our time at the Café. I loved writing for Carina Press, too, which is how we all came together to begin with. We’ve watched the changes that have metamorphosed publishing, some of us gleefully and hopefully, some of us mumbling and cussing. We’ve learned from each other and about each other.
I’m going to miss the Café, but I’m everlastingly grateful to have been here.
I write for Harlequin Heartwarming now and hope that continues, but next up on my writing horizon is The Magic Stocking, my contribution to A Heartwarming Holiday, the third annual anthology that takes place in Christmas Town, Maine. The first two years’ offerings, Christmas, Actually and A Heartwarming Christmas are still available, too.
If you’re out and about, you can find me waxing eloquent at Word Wranglers, Gems in the Attic, and Harlequin Heartwarming Authors’ Blog. I hope you come by and visit.
Till next time! (I’m waving.)
The title of this post was the prompt for our “assignment” at my writers’ group on Monday. I was late getting around. I’m writing this late Tuesday afternoon. As you might notice, I’m late getting around again. Well, always. It … Continue reading
I’m sure this is a subject that we’ve covered before, but I’ve been thinking about it because I have one coming up. Conferences. Do you go? Why do you go? What do you get out of it? Which ones do … Continue reading
It didn’t take much imagination to come up with the “best days” idea because I just had one of them. The UPS guy came up the driveway and since I (for once) hadn’t ordered anything, I knew he was bringing … Continue reading
Speaking of procrastinating…I’m running behind. Sigh. I hope everyone’s having a splendid first month of 2016. I just noticed in the past few days that my Carina Press books, One More Summer and Jar of Dreams, are 99 cents. I … Continue reading
I read two blogs by writer friends lately—thank you, Vicki Batman http://plottingprincesses.blogspot.com/2015/12/best-of-best-mfrwauthor-rssossisters.html and Ava Cuvay http://wordwranglers.blogspot.com/–that talked about favorites and books that “rocked your world.” Like everyone else who’s ever opened a book, I have some, ones that hold warm … Continue reading
Oh, holiday romances—I love them! Way back before indie-pubbing and boxed sets, there weren’t all that many of them, but I’d buy all the Christmas anthologies as soon as they came out, honing in on Nora Roberts, Mary Balogh, and … Continue reading
My muse is quiet today. She’s given me the name of a new heroine, but no story, no hero, not even a setting. She’s teasing me, knowing I want to work on the book I’ve already started and that I … Continue reading
THE GINGERBREAD HEART is being released tomorrow as part of A HEARTWARMING CHRISTMAS boxed set. I am annoyingly excited. Here’s an excerpt: He came into the kitchen the same time as she did, dressed only in faded jeans. It had … Continue reading
I have been sitting here–for too long, I must admit–trying to think of which character to introduce. Now that I’ve waited until periously close to time for a conference call with an editor and, following that, a football game my … Continue reading
