I have a new love in my life

Big chocolate brown eyes. A very cold nose. Very sweet, shy, and loves to lick.

Her name is Zoey and pictures will be coming soon. The Diva cat is doing pretty well with the new addition, objecting with a smack when she gets sniffed.

Ding dong the scene is dead

The wicked scene.

It's been a beast to write. Kicked my butt actually. But, it's done except for the edits. And hi ho there will be edits LOL. I don't think I nailed it. But, it's on to the next scene, which should be a lot of fun.

And I'm around halfway done with Settler's Mine 1: The Rivals.

Happy Valentine's Day! And congrats

I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day.

I know my buds who write Marissa Alwin are having a good one. Their first book, Heart on His Sleeve released from Ellora's Cave today as part of their Valentine's Vixen Quickies. I've had the honor of a preview. Great story.

Later today, I plan to give a Valentine's present to my newsletter group, The Crayon Chronicles. A short story with Nick and Sarah from Blood Lines: Blood Kiss. I'm excited about the story and hope everyone enjoys it.

May the muses have Valentines

The great debate

Racism In Publishing, How Does It Affect You?

Are you an African American author who’s been published for at least one year? If so Karen Scott wants to hear from you.

She’s conducting a survey based on the racism within the publishing industry, and whether or not it’s as prevalent as some believe. She’s looking for black or African American authors who have been published for at least one year.

She would like to know about your specific experiences within the industry thus far. She wants to know how AA authors feel about the current shelving policies, and niche marketing. She wants to know who you feel is to blame for the problems that you face. She also wants your suggestions on how things can be improved upon.

In all, there are twenty questions in the survey, and all that she asks is that people be as honest as possible. Confidentiality is assured if requested, but for the findings to yield more weight, she would request that she be granted permission to directly quote from the answers given by the authors.

She’s hoping to poll at least 100 AA authors, in an effort to ensure that a fair representation is achieved.

If enough authors agree to partcipate, (and depending on the findings) the results may well be sent to representatives within media and press. No promises that Oprah will hear about it, but all efforts will be made to get the message out.

If there are AA authors out there interested in participating in this poll, please e-mail Karen at hairylemony @ gmail. com (without the spaces) with the subject header ‘Please send me the survey'.

The deadline for the survey to be completed and returned to Karen is March 1st 2007.
