I always think it’s better to have too much work than not
enough. Maybe that’s why I get myself so involved in projects.
I’m very happy that my new agent is trying to find a home
for a series I dreamed up awhile back, the Texas Festival Mysteries. I envision
my sleuth driving her Cookie Cart (a cookie food truck) from one Texas festival
to the next, selling cookies that are themed to the celebration. Let me tell
you, Texas has enough strange and wonderful festivals to keep that series going
for many years to come. Like this one!
Meanwhile, I turned the second Vintage Sweets mystery,
DEADLY SWEET TOOTH, in to my editor at Lyrical Press. That series will also
take place in Texas, but will mostly stay rooted in lovely touristy Fredericksburg
nestled in amongst a lot of wineries in picturesque Texas Hill country.
Meanwhile, I’m working on a short story to submit to an
upcoming anthology with a deadline looming very soon.
Meanwhile, I need to tell you about an exciting event coming
up the last Sunday of this month—a radio broadcast about me! A short piece
about me and my work will be read by Jody Sims on WUOT, the local public radio
station. The program is called TheAuthors Page
and comes on at 8:35 am EST. But don’t worry, they shows are
all recorded and can be heard any time.
Most of the programs are about famous TN writers. These were
written by the member of the Authors Guild of Tennessee, of which I’m a member.
(I wrote one of the scripts that will appear later.) Check out some of these
while you’re there. The broadcasts are short, about five minutes. The last
Sunday of the month, however, is devoted to telling you about the members of
our group. And mine is coming up this month!
