Feeling Organized, but Still Passionate

I spent Labor Day weekend going over the page proofs for Mistress by Midnight. It’s always a thrill to see what the book will look like in my hand, and it means soon Kensington will be sending me ARCs! And you know what that means (see here and below for a way to win an ARC of Lords of Passion). As soon as I get some, we’ll have more fun with a #Mistress Monday or two and a website contest.

Mistress by Midnight is a bit different from Mistress by Mistake. It’s an emotional, angsty reunited lovers story, filled with broken promises and a not-so-secret baby. I call it my Cathy and Heathcliff without the full-on crazy. For a tiny taste, I’ve uploaded the cover copy and prologue here.

You’ll also see some spiffing up to the blog side bar on the right, with a new Coming Soon feature and links. Everything’s got excerpts up now except Any Wicked Thing. Thank you, Frauke at Croco Designs!

And more in the organization department, I’ve been sending out ARCs of Lords of Passion for review, arranging a blog tour (hard for this pantser to plan months ahead), and getting gorgeous new bookmarks designed. I guess my summer’s officially over, LOL.

I need a new planner for 2011, because I believe I’ve got four books coming out! How do you keep yourself straight–with a daily diary, a calendar online, or little slips of paper all over your desk? (guilty as charged)

    Hi Maggie! Another wow cover!!!! Haven’t gotten the hang of using the iPhone calendar and still rely on post-it notes to remember anything!

    I just brought a pretty pink leather desk planner, but it’s small enough to slip in my bag. It’s just like this year’s, which unfortunately my 2 year old granddaughter scribbled in from January thru September, LOL. I’m just not tech-savvy enough to feel comfortable putting everything up electronically/digitally/whateverly. And thanks for the cover compliments, Venus. I love it!
