First off, farewell to Bobby Charles, who wrote one of my favorite old songs that I associate with Louisiana. He died today in Abbeville. Take a listen.
New from the book front…the contracts are in my agent’s hands and will be winging their way to me shortly assuming she doesn’t find a problem with them. Yee-hah. Except….last night I realized I needed to get my backside in gear and work on the third book in the series. I’m supposed to have a proposal ready by April, which means (gulp) I have to really give serious thought to what’s going to happen in it. So I am now juggling FOUR novels–ROYAL STREET is getting ready for revisions, RIVER ROAD is in crit group, STOCKHOLM is getting its first draft massaged out, and ELYSIAN FIELDS is in planning stages.
I need a nap. Or a Xanax.
