Man oh man am I glad it’s Friday. Nearly done with CAPTIVATED. In fact I’m on the last scenes now. The book is probably the most sexually intense I’ve written in a while. Not every book and every story will demand that sort of level of sexuality and the intensity of sex scenes. I don’t want them to. Each story and each group of characters is unique and who they are, what they are and what their story evokes will always be different.

Wrapping up packing for RWA next week. I leave on Monday and I’m so excited. Well, actually I’m stressed, of course, because I have so much to do, so much mail to get to, another book to get started, promo to plan for ONCE AND AGAIN, NEVER ENOUGH and HEART OF DARKNESS and you know it’s summer and the kids are home and I want to spend time with them too. BUT, I’m really excited about National and I know the moment I get off the plane I’ll leave all that other stuff behind for a week and just enjoy the conference, NYC and all my friends.

If you leave in the area, there’s a HUGE book signing with more than 500 published authors from 5:30 – 7:30 Tuesday, June 28 in the Marriott Times Square. The publishers all donate the books people buy so the proceeds all go to a literacy charity. It’s really amazing every year! If you’ll be around, please do come and say hello.

I’ll be posting lots of pictures at my tumblr during the week. But to keep content going up over here I thought I’d do some excerpts so I’m calling for suggestions! What books would you like to see excerpts from?

I’m off to bed now, as it’s not quite Friday here (just shy of midnight my time).

    Love more excerpts on Never Enough and Heart of Darkness…. and of course most certainly Captivated, when you’re ready to share. Was just re-reading Mesmerized… can’t wait for Captivated.
