So, life is a bit busy. Bet you hadn't noticed, eh? :) We bought a house. Well, us and the bank are buying our dream house next week. I'm excited and a bit scared, too. Going in debt does that to a person. I'll post pictures after we sign the papers.

I'm working on revisions for my third medical romance. Have I mentioned how much I adore my editor at Mills & Boon? She's so great and really focuses in on ways to make the story better. I should finish the revisions this weekend and have them turned in by Monday morning. Before the moving starts--yea!

On July 10th, I go to Dallas for a week. Yes, this is when my family is moving. Going to be very interesting to come home and it be a different home. We've been in our current house for fifteen years and my children haven't known anywhere else. Lots of happy and sad emotions go into leaving our current home. Anyway, Dallas. :) It's time for the RWA National conference which means I'll get to hang out with lots of really cool romance authors and industry professionals. AND I GET TO SEE MY FRIENDS. Most of my bestest friends in the world are romance authors. Unfortunately most of us live in different states and only see each other in person a few times a year. On the 10th I get to see my buds and I'm soooo looking forward to seeing them.

I've sold my fifth book since my last post. :) I'm not sure of release dates and such, but I'm really excited at the prospect of having another book come out during the next year . The Doctor's Pregnancy Bombshell comes out in November and I'll likely have a cover within the next month or so. Waiting for a cover is like wondering what your kids are going to look like because each and every story an author writes is a 'baby'.

It's late and I'm rambling on, but I wanted to try to ketch-up a little and to let my pals who read my blog in on what's going on in my life, basically, the moving bug. :)

Britain's Got Talent

I'd never heard of this show until a friend of mine sent these links through via email. I had to share because I was so moved by this man's emotion, his sincerity, his heart. Wow.

I think as someone who aspires to achieve my dreams (hey, NY Times bestseller list, here I come!), to watch someone so REAL step up to his dream so amazingly is...humbling. I'll admit I'm a total sap & cried during his performance. I didn't mean to. It just happened as he's that moving.

If you've ever had a dream and wondered if it could come true...


Here's his final performance after winning.


Truly amazing.

Kelley St. John chat!!!

Be sure to join Kelley St. John's chat tomorrow night at 8 PM Central time. You can join the chat by going to and clicking on the chat feature that will be available tomorrow night. I can't wait to talk with Kelley about her sexy ghost stories she writes for Harlequin Blaze. And it'll be great to see what she has coming up next from Grand Central Publishing. Mark your calendars!!

Kelley St. John's previous experience as a senior writer at NASA fueled her interest in writing action-packed suspense, although she also enjoys penning steamy romances and quirky women's fiction. Since 2000, St. John has obtained over fifty writing awards, including the National Readers' Choice Award, and was elected to the Board of Directors for Romance Writers of America. She currently writes for Grand Central Publishing (formerly Warner Forever) and Harlequin Blaze.
This is a blurb from Kelley's next Harlequin Blaze:

He’s never touched her but he’s made love to her.
He doesn’t know her, but he has to find her…
Before a killer does.

Gage Vicknair has been dreaming—incredible erotic visions—about a mysterious brown-eyed beauty.

Makayla Sparks has been dreaming about a strong, sexy man who keeps her safe-- and very, very satisfied.

When a spirit from beyond tells Gage he needs to rescue a stranger named Makayla, he never expects that stranger to be the same sensuous woman he’s enjoyed so thoroughly in his nightly fantasies. But Makayla is very real—and she’s living a nightmare. A vengeful murderer is determined to get her. And Gage is equally determined to save her.

Because the only way he and Makayla can have the love they’ve dreamed of is if they’re still around to live it…
