Lady Darby Series Updates - August 22, 2011

Well, contracts have been signed, and I should be receiving edits for Lady Darby Book 1 from my editor any day now, as they are due back to her by mid-October, so production of Book 1 is well under way. I have also been given more definite publishing dates for the books. Book 1 is set for November 2012, and I’m told that is pretty set in stone. My best bet is that the release date will either be just before Halloween (Oct 30th) or Election Day (Nov 6th), because publishing r...

Research Topic - Elizabeth Parsons Ware Packard - August 22, 2011

While doing research on Monday, I stumbled across an interesting person in American history - Elizabeth Parsons Ware Packard.  Mrs. Packard was married to Reverand Theopilus Packard in 1839, and they had six children together.  In June of 1860, Mr. Packard, a strict Calvinist minister, decided his wife was "slightly insane" and had her committed to the insane asylum in Jacksonville, Illinois.  Mrs. Packard was not informed of this decision until the county sheriff c...

Confession: Sometimes...I pretend I'm really cool - August 19, 2011

Sometimes…I pretend I’m really cool. Driving through town on a beautiful day with the windows down, my sunglasses on and the wind blowing through my hair, and music blasting out of the car speakers. It has to be something loud and fast—something that really gets my blood pumping—something that gets me dancing in my seat and drumming my fingers against the steering wheel.    I love the way the sun kisses my skin, the way it glistens off my hair, making i...

What I'm Reading Now: Envious Casca by Georgette Heyer - August 17, 2011

Envious Casca by Georgette Heyer A marvelous mystery!  Filled with all the elements Heyer's readers have come to expect - insightful characterization and witty dialogue.  This is not the first book I've read by Heyer, being a fan of Regency Romances, but is the first of her mystery thrillers I have picked up.  It certainly won't be the last.  A holiday party takes on a sinister aspect when the colorful assortment of guests discovers there is a killer in their midst. The own... Click Here To Read More >>



Confession: Sometimes...I don't listen very well - August 16, 2011

Sometimes...I don't listen very well. And I never realize it until after the fact.  I take great pride in being a good listener. In knowing how to do it the “right” way. In being an active-listener, and repeating what the speaker said to make sure I truly heard and understand them. In letting them vent their hurts or frustrations, and empathizing while not always offering a solution, because I know sometimes people just want someone to listen.    But...

Back to School Rituals and the County Fair - August 8, 2011

When I heard that my nieces and nephew in Alabama were returning to school today, all I could think was, “So Early!” And then I discovered that some of the schools in my area were starting later this week, even though most of the districts in this section of the Midwest wait until late August because not all of their buildings have air conditioning. However, more and more of the buildings are being updated, and more and more of the districts are returning to school earlier ...

Family - August 1, 2011

Last week was a busy one for me, with family from out-of-town visiting. My brother and his new bride drove down from Toledo, and another brother and his wife and 3-year-old daughter came up from Sidney, Ohio to join my husband and I, my parents, and my two college-aged siblings who still live with Mom and Dad during the summer. In fact, the only people missing from our large family gathering were my brother who lives in South Carolina and his wife. This has been a summer of gather...

Back-to-School Drama - July 29, 2011

  It’s late July, and that means…back-to school sales!    Although I don’t yet have children, I still take advantage of the deals to stock up on office supplies for the year. (When else can you regularly buy notebooks for 20 cents or less a piece?) Meandering through the packed aisles at Target, I couldn’t help but smile at the children’s excitement as they selected their school supplies. I was pleasantly reminded of the back-to-sch...

A Reader For Life - July 19, 2011

  I read a blog this morning (http://www.likesbooks.com/blog/) about whether readers are born or made, whether we can raise our kids to be readers or if genetically they are just born that way. It got me thinking about my own journey as a lover of books.    Genetically speaking, reading is in my blood. Both of my parents love to read, though my dad did so much less often when I was a child than he does now. Several of my grandparents loved to read, especially my ...

Can you take the heat? - July 18, 2011

I hate heat. Hate it. Loathe it. And high humidity is even worse. This is one of the reasons I live in the Midwest—the northern portion of the Midwest. There are weeks like this one when the temps reach 100, and the heat index climbs over 110, but they are few and far between.  I spent two years in midstate South Carolina and seven years in middle Tennessee. Believe me, I understand what true heat is. And beautiful as it is there in the early spring...
