Haven't Fallen Off the Face of the Earth

Hi All:  I'm sorry that I haven't been blogging much.  It's been a long, hard summer.  I was late with the current book and I struggled with it.  It was late and that drove me nuts.  All my focus was on getting the book done and I'm afraid I let other things, like the blog, slide.  I apologize.  The good news is that the book finally landed on my editor's desk on Monday.  Whew!  Howard and I were glad to see the last of it...for now.  At the moment I'm just recovering and trying to catch up with everything I ignored through the summer.
My most immediate project is to put together the proposal for the next two books to present to my editor (the book I turned in was the 2nd in a 2 book contract, so technically, as of now I'm unemployed).  Assuming all goes well with contract talks, I'll be continuing the Joslyn Family Series. With Barnaby's half-brother, Luc's book back in N.Y. I'll be concentrating on Simon or Mathew's book.  Haven't decided which one of Barnaby's cousins that I'll do first.  Thanks for putting up with me.  Ta, Shirlee
