Dark Prince update: It is in the hands of the publishers and HOPEFULLY, it will come back to me in perfect proof form. Time will tell. I expect to get the proof within the next week or so. If it passes muster, I will hit the publish key and it will be available in paperback. A few days after that it will be available on Kindle. Shortly thereafter it will be available via all other channels, i.e., Nook, iPad, Galaxy and other ereaders, I'll let you know.
Shadow King update: Once Prince goes live, I can concentrate on The Shadow King. I have two scenes to rewrite and in the meantime, my cover designer Jennifer, will be hard at work creating a beautiful cover which will feature the prince on it. Can't wait to see who we find to become Andrew Easton.
Crescent Summer update: Crescent Summer is the first book of my new trilogy. I am currently making the rounds with agents/publishers which means a lot of hurry up and wait.
The Gypsy Thief update: The screenplay treatment is complete. As soon as Prince is available, I will send the treatment and a copy of Prince to producers in Hollywood. Then it's more hurry up and wait.
And now onto a completely different topic...I imagined a conversation between two people I knew back in Shaker Heights and what they might say if they know about the recent changes in my life. These are two people who used to be friends of mine and the conversation went something like this:
P#1: OMG! Did you hear what your friend Kellie Tayer did?
P#2: Oh, gawd. What's she done now? Remarried her ex?
P#1: HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! No! Even better! She met some Hispanic guy on the Internet and ran off to Mexico and married him!
P#2: Oh, gawd! No way! I mean, she's crazy but nobody's that crazy.
P#1: Oh, it's true. I heard it from A who heard it from B when he overheard a conversation between C and D. Then E confirmed it. It's totally true. I bet she's pregnant and he took all her money. I heard they live in a trailer in the middle of nowhere and he beats her. And they have no electricity or running water.
P#2: Awesome. I bet she loves it!
P#1: I know, right? She probably orchestrated the whole thing for research for a book she's writing. Ever since she read "Fifty Shades of Grey" she's been different. I heard it affects everyone differently.
P#2: That's true. I read it and now I have an account at Ambience.
P#1: Really? I read it but I didn't get it. Where I come from, that kind of, shall we say, activity, can get a gal stoned.
P#2: Ooh, kinky. So Kellie doesn't live in Shaker anymore? She didn't even say good-bye. What a bee-otch. I always hated her. She always acted so goody-goody.
P#1: She had some weird habits, that's for sure. I mean, seriously...who eats that much ketchup in one sitting?
P#2: And her clothes! Blah! And her fingernails were always too short! So were her pants! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I would hate to be her! And now she's thrown her life away for an Internet fling. Wow. I always knew she'd go off the deep end. I'm so glad I'm normal.
P#1: Amen to that. I've gotta go. My family's trying to have me committed and I need to get to my sanity hearing. See ya later.
P#2: OK. I've gotta get home anyway. The...uh...plumber...is coming over to service my pipes. He's very expensive and I want to make sure to get my money's worth. If you hear any good gossip about Kellie, make sure you call me.
P#1: I will. And if I don't hear anything, we can still get together and make stuff up.
P#2: Sounds good. Bye.
On that note...I shall close here. My trailer is tipping and I need to find some rocks to prop it up. I also need to go to the well to get water for bathing. And if I have time, I'm gonna rub some sticks together to make fire. I also need to let out the hems from my pants and buff my nails. I'm craving ketchup--pregnancy will do that to you. Until next time.
P.S. We have electricity and running water and we don't live in a trailer (though sometimes Oscar pulls one with his truck). I do love ketchup and once ate a whole bottle of it. I am not pregnant and my pants are plenty long enough. Oh, and I have beautiful nails. Teehee. Adios..........
