Cruising, Revising, and Cave-Dwelling

Hola Amigos!

Sorry I have been so scarce in this little corner of the blog-o-sphere lately. Thanks for waiting so patiently for a new post.

As most of you know, Aunty was off on an eleven day cruise to sunny Mexico. AHEM! More like HOTTER Than HADES, Mexico. But we still had lots of fun, and got to visit two ports (Topolobampo and La Paz) that we'd never been to before. Plus, I'm sure all that sweating I did cleansed my pores as thoroughly as any expensive sauna or steam bath. (Pictures are coming as soon as Aunty finds someplace that still actually processes 35 mm film!)

Unfortunately, the moment the ship docked, I had to crawl off and seclude myself in the deep, dark 'Revision Cave' in order to meet my deadline for my third release, The Wild Irish Sea. That deadline was TODAY, by the way! WHEW! Glad to have that task off my plate.

Meanwhile, The Treasures of Venice continues to receive positive reviews and raves from readers. My most sincere thanks to those of you who have read the book and enjoyed it! If you have a picture of the book on a store shelf, or in your hot little hands, please forward it to me. (here's a shot of TToV--third row down-- in the Barnes & Noble in Fresno, CA)

My favorite reviews are from those who claim they never read "those books." You know, the ones with bare-chested men on the covers! HAHAHAHA! I am hereby making it my writing mission to convert those non-romance readers!

Hasta Luego!

Congrats on meeting the deadline.

Thanx Jane!

It was a tough slog, but I knew I would make it. My book and my readers (like YOU) deserve my very best.

So glad you had such a great time and the the revisions are done I can't wait to read your next masterpiece.

I love it when I can convert someone to reading romance books they really don't know what they are missing out on.

Looking forward to seeing the photos

Have Fun

AWWW Helen!
You're so sweet to call it a masterpiece! I wouldn't go that far, but I am proud of it, just like my previous two.

And you are sooo right! People who don't read romance do NOT know what good stories they are missing.

It's reassuring to know that a writer can take a vacation and still meet a deadline! (The other Lucinda)

Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

Yes, Lucinda, it can be done.

However, I would NOT have had to push myself quite so hard had I stayed home...

But what's the FUN in that?!?!
