Good Friday Morning, everyone! Thanks to all of your for your kind words of congratulations, they mean so much to me.

So Tracy gave me a head’s up and my cover for Sudden Desire is on the Coming Soon Page at EC. I think I need to send an email to the Art Department so I can get one sent to me to update my website and blog, etc.

I’m editing. I’d say editing hell but it’s really not. A lot of work, yes, but dare I say it? I think I’m used to this now and it’s just another layer of writing a book. I like Angie, my editor at Samhain, a lot. I’m pretty lucky with Ann, my EC editor and Angie – having an editor you like and respect and who respects you is priceless.

I’m having dinner tomorrow night with Samantha! How fun! And then I think we’ll do something family oriented on Sunday during the day.

My husband brought me home flowers last night as a “happy one year publishing anniversary” present. Again, I must say it, he’s a keeper.

Okay, so I haven’t followed American Idol that closely this season, I caught it here and there but that’s during my writing time and so I usually work instead. But I saw the last moments on Wednesday when they announced Chris was cut. And hello? Aside from being totally shocked that the guy with the most regularly demonstrated talent and charisma got kicked off instead of the chick who is moderately okay, was it just me or was Ryan Seacrest sort of nasty when he told Chris he’d been cut? It just seemed totally mean, the way he made it sound like he was going to say, “go sit down you’re safe” but instead said, “you’re going home.” And I know people are exited about the offer to sing lead for Fuel, but um, well, where has Fuel been the last what, ten years? Anyway, he’s a talented guy and he’s gotten a lot of exposure and I hope he can work it into something big for himself. But it felt like back in season one when Tamayra got cut and that doofus Nikki got to stay – it makes no sense.

I read Definitely Dead this last week and I liked it. I know some folks have not liked it at all but I’ll do a review next week about it and say why I did like it. Now I have to pretend Broken isn’t in my TBR pile so I can finish my edits.

Anyone doing anything exciting this weekend?
