Mmm, Saturday morning. Back on my diet, worked out, awaiting hair appointment and writing. Great day1
It’s been while since my last post. Unless you count Facebook, lol. Like everyone else, I’ve been super busy–still working full time, kids in college coming and going, dogs and birds to take care of, and of course–the ever present specter of housework. (shudders!)
Anyway, here I am, back at it. Writing is ongoing, lol. I’ve got three books going through revisions right now and two new ones I’m working on. Plus, I’m also re-editing one of my backlist books. THE MAD EARL will soon be coming out on Kindle and Nook as TO RESCUE AN EARL, and it’ll be under my name Pamela Labud. Check out the cover art!
What a perfect day! 25k done on my manuscript! I’m half-way there!
I have to admit, I don’t blog, tweet, google, linked in, goodreads or facebook enough. So many social medias, so little time. Sigh.
Strong Arms To Hold Me by Leigh Curtis (me!) is # 19 in Amazon’s kindle books-genre-westerns ranking! Whoo Hoo!
Whoo hoo! Just bought Irene Peterson’s new book, Kiss My Ectoplasm! I can’t wait to read it. http://ow.ly/f0vAH
Book 1 in the Blue Star Baby Trilogy
A Post Apocalyptic Zombie Killing Love Story
Are you doing it? Have you signed up for National Novel Writer’s Month challenge? You totally should. If your an author, or even have thought about writing a book, this is the year to do it.

This year I handed the reigns over to my alter ego, Leigh Curtis. She’s writing a book, tentatively titled: I’ll Remember You. Think amnesiac cowboy/conman who falls in love with the feisty rancher’s daughter he’s supposed to con. Lots of fun, angst, and cowboy/cowgirl goodness, I promise.
Other than that, I’ve been working on the last of my revisions for To Catch A Lady, the first book in my Regency set historical series, The Hunt Club. I’ve got five Regency gentlemen who think they can outsmart the marriage mart and choose their own brides, pursuing and catching their lady-loves by using their hunting skills to do so!
Also, I’m finally resurrecting my Alternate Universe series, starting with Cry Wolf. It’s a series about a race of beings descended from wolves and scraping out their existence under the heel of the English Regency aristocracy.
Finally, my alter ego, Leigh is working on her first Menage story, a spicy western/sci-fi story about two beings hiding out on earth in the 1880s wild west. The heroine is running from the law and a forced marriage when she meets two of the handsomest cowboys in west. Desperate for a wife to complete their family, the two are also hiding out, from the most powerful man of their world who wants to claim on man for their own and destroy the other. Lots of love, intrigue, and hot cowboy awesome-ness!
Time for me to hit the ‘nano’ trail. Plus, I’m meeting up with my critique partner. We’re going through final edits on the first book of my Urban Fantasy series, Grave Danger. I’ll post an early draft of my cover created by my cover artist CLL, and my lovely cover model, HC.
I just wanted to stop in and thank the folks at Necronomicon for the fantastic weekend I had with them. It was an awesome Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror Convention this past weekend (10/25/12 through 10/18/12).
Many thanks to the awesome Linnea Sinclair for putting out the call for romance authors, and including Nancy Cohen and Lucienne Diver, as well as the other fabulous authors who came out. It was fun, informative and supremely cool to be a guest.
Also, I got to spend time with the wonderful and talented M.A. Ellis, an awesome Ellora’s Cave author and fellow RWA chapter mate, M.L. Joy. It was great hanging out with you!
Kudos to the Stonehill group who are responsible for putting on the convention. Also, I think it’s awesome that they kept a booth and ran a drawing for Kids and Canines. They are a fantastic group of people donating time and money to: “work with at-risk teens, teaching them how to train assistance dogs… providing independence to individuals with disabilities.” (From their website: kidsandcanines.org).
Okay, back to work. I’ve got lots of writing stuff to do. Catch ya later!
It was also my first convention without my kids and I have to say it was a little lonely at times.
