Love is in the air!
First off, I need to apologize. I have been a very bad blogger of late. As some of you know, from the 8th to the 13th, I ran a cyber-launch party on my author blog to celebrate the launch of my newest book, POPULAR VOTE (and though POPULAR is not technically a Simon Pulse rocom, it is a romantic comedy in the same vein, so by all means, check it out!). Since then I have not only been derelict in selecting the prizewinners from that party, but I'm also quite late checking in to this blog (I usually post here mid-month, for those of you keeping score at home).
But I have a good excuse! I swear! In addition to literally being buried under deadlines (schoolwork went in two weeks ago, new manuscript in the Bradford series--eek!--tomorrow), last weekend my loverly N surprised me by popping the question!
Yes, it's the truth: this hopeless romantic is going to get hitched. Squee!
The pic you see is the flowers with which he proposed, and a Scrabble board and a Noah and Micol Mad Lib (random inside jokes). Aren't the roses pretty?
And as if that weren't enough romance permeating the atmosphere, this weekend we're up in Toronto at the future brother-in-law's wedding. It's been a lush, lavish weekend filled with love and well-wishes. If it weren't for the book deadlines, I wouldn't want to go back home!
(Meh--on second thought, forget the book deadlines. I can always write from the EXTREME comfort of this hotel).
It's a good thing I write romances, since I seem to be drowning in it of late. Next on my reading list: SOMETHING BORROWED by Catherine Hapka, of course.
