Yesterday I received a new contract from The Wild Rose Press for a short story titled A Faded Photograph. It will be in the Last Rose of Summer line. This was a different step for me, as it's written in the POV of a male rather than female. I really like this story and I hope you'll check it out when it's released.
Also, today I posted a "craft" blog on Sweeter Romantic Notions Author Blog. It's all about "empowering" the word smile in your manuscript. On Friday, I'll be posting some examples of what I changed in my current ms, and I'm challenging everyone to do the same. I hope you'll take a few moments to read my blog entry, and then look what you are currently writing. Then on Friday, join me to add those brilliant lines you've revised.
