House Hunting

You may be wondering why I haven’t been blogging much lately. The reason is that, in addition to working at my day job and trying to complete Book 3 in the Jean and Rosie series, as well as participating in a recent event, keeping up with my emails, running a promo last week, etc., etc. (the list is too long), my husband and I have been house hunting.

We haven’t found our next home yet, but after looking at about 18 houses so far in all different shapes and sizes (I feel sorry for my Realtor), we have a better idea of what we really want now and still believe the right one is out there.

And, through all of this searching, I’m getting some great material for Book 3. Yes, the next book will have a few interesting real estate scenes in it, like in Polyester Pajamas (the first book in the series) does.  I’m not 100% sure what it will be titled yet, but it will be published later this year.

Regarding in Polyester Pajamas, I want to extend a big THANK YOU to the many sites who promoted the ebook, to my publisher and Amazon, and to the thousands of readers who downloaded it during its first free promotion last week. I don’t have the exact number of downloads from my publisher yet, but I know it was a lot because it made it to #6 in the free books at Amazon.com and stayed there for quite a while.

(FYI – in Woolen Bikinis, the 2nd book in the series, had a free promo last year and made it to #9 in the free books at Amazon.com. It was only at that rank for a brief time and had over 16,000 downloads.)

      It’s going to be a little later this year, but it’ll be out. Thank you! It means so much to know that others enjoy Jean and Rosie as much as I do. :)

    Waiting patiently for your next book. Didn’t I hear something about motorcycles being in it somehow; in the title? I hope you are having a great time looking at houses.

      Yes, there are girls on bikes in the next one! I’m late this year, but after a stretch of writer’s block, I’m busy working on it again. It’ll be with the publisher no later than Sept 1st for editing (I hope to have it there sooner) and published by end of year. As for the house hunting, it’s fun but it’s also frustrating. I’m SO READY to find the right house!!
