The New Covey Awards rocks!

And Southern Man is in the running! My book cover is #9 and the voting buttons are down the left side. Kudos to David Boultbee for making the site available; it's a boon to writers. Follow the link below to visit the site, learn more about it, and find out how to submit your cover. And if you're so inclined to cast your vote for my cover, I'll just be tickled to death!

Thank you for the interview

My online friend and critique partner, Cara Martens, recently interviewed me for her blog, Moonstruck Gems. I'd love to have folks visit her blog read my interview, but the real treat is seeing her photos of gemstones and the lovely jewelry she makes from them. Don't miss it. And Cara, thanks so much for the interview. It was fun!

In the LASR Spotlight

I recently had a great time in the "Author Spotlight" at Long and Short Romance Reviews. Judy and Marianne at LASR had drawings back in the summer for several spotlight features -- and I won one of 'em! The spotlighted author writes five essays that are posted at the LASR review site from Monday through Friday. Site visitors answer questions from each essay and the winner receives a gift from the featured author. My gift to the winner was an autographed copy of my novel.

My essay topics were as follows (click to go to LASR to read the essays).

Monday -- On Writing
Tuesday -- On Agenda and Theme
Wednesday -- My Hero
Thursday -- Dialog and Dialect
Friday -- Excerpt from Southern Man

I had a great time in the LASR spotlight, and I enjoyed the comments left by readers. LASR is a terrific site run by folks who do so much for romance authors. My thanks to you ladies, and best wishes for the continued success of your site!
