Yes. I’m Alive.

I’ve been absent but here I am, not that I have much to say at the moment. πŸ™‚ But my Books page has been updated with new covers and I’ll be including excerpts very soon. My current releases seem to be doing okay and I’m fluffing up a new trilogy proposal for my agent.

I’ve started the first book already even though I’m nowhere near the submission stage. I’m antsy when I don’t write, but my time lately has revolved around family and friends. We’ve entertained nearly every weekend since we moved in (very modestly, because my husband is still recovering. He still wants to use his new gas/charcoal/smoker grill every chance he gets, though. It is the size of an aircraft carrier.).

This fourth of July weekend will bring most of the Robinson clan together on the lake—kids, kayaks, beer and Dirty Scrabble… if I’ve unpacked the Scrabble set yet. What is Dirty Scrabble, you ask? Just what it sounds like. Only provocative (and sometimes mis-spelled) words are allowed. I’m hoping to learn something to add to my knowledge of naughtiness.

Have a safe holiday weekend! What are your plans—fireworks, hotdogs, parades? What does your family do for fun when you get together?

    I immediately got an image of the classic scene from Frankenstein when I saw this blog title. lol

    Like I’ve said to you, I think you needed some time off. You’ve been so busy lately (with the book releases, the nonstop writing, and real life events). Plus, it’s an entirely selfish motive on my part in my attempts to catch up to your warp-like speed of writing and completing a book.

    I really cannot wait to read this new proposal when you’re done. HINT. I’m sure it’s fabulous and will be bought up in no time. I love your writing, which is why it’s so easy being your cp/friend, and I really cannot wait to see what you come up with next. HINT. πŸ˜‰

    Hi Maggie, you have been busy! Been thinking about you. Your plans for the 4th sounds idyllic! Take care!

    Ely, when it’s polished and shiny, you will. πŸ™‚

    Hi, Venus! I bet Hawaii’s pretty nice on the 4th too—but there is something about a Maine lake!

      Maggie! Who knows if I’ll ever see Maine but I can imagine! Yes, Hawaii isn’t bad at all. BTW, I got something special (and tempting) in the mail yesterday, Mucho Mahalo my dear, much appreciated! Love everything you write!

    Dirty scrabble! Oh I’m definitely going to try this at my next get together!
