Changes, changes.

There will be a change, as I mentioned, coming to the looks of my website and blog soon. I think it's pretty cool, as I've seen the design. Not flashy or extra-sparkly, but I like it. And it reminds me of a website Catie did for me once, so you know, that's fun too.

Oh, and it's June. That means my Cerridwen book is only two months away. (It feels like it's been forever since I sold it. *pant pant*) And so, I offer a peek at the cover:

Pretty cool, no?

Went riding this past weekend, again, and had a ton of fun actually getting the horses to canter. Lots of trotting to work up to it though, and lots of bouncing around, means that Sara is pretty sore. Oddly, it's all in the torso. Well, not so oddly, as you have to hold yourself up, but man. Places I didn't remember I had are sore. It's all good!

Still in holding on the career scene, but that's par for the course. I'm finishing cleanup on a book to turn in and I so don't want to. I keep thinking 'but I just read this book, do I have to do it again?' Woe, woe is me.

Speaking of reading, I've been doing quite a bit of it lately. Clearing out Ye Olde TBR Mountain Range. It's funny to me how, reading back through old series romances from 2002 (yes, you read that right), I've really seen the truth in the concept of having to read what a line's releasing now to know how to write for them. The tone's completely different, the story styles have changed. This is actually a pretty good exercise for me, I think, but wow, what an on-the-page eyeopener.

Anyone else had one of those lately?

I stopped trying to write for Harlequin because their style shifted out from under me.

Yep. . . the books I read 2 years ago in category romances are nothing like what they are releasing now.

I have to hope that eventually they sync up with me!
