Even though fall doesn’t officially start until Wednesday, here in western North Carolina, we’ve been getting a teasing glimpse of autumn with cooler temps at night and apple-scented breezes wafting our way from all the apple orchards in the area.  On Saturday, I spent the day canning apple jelly and of course, I used local apples.  So sweet and juicy.  Did you know that home-made apple jelly has a lovely pink tint to it instead of the fake goldish color of store-bought apple jelly?  So much prettier!

Got a couple of promotions to pass on…first, over at the Dames of Dialogue blog, author Loretta Wheeler is guest blogging and she’s talking about blow-up dolls.  Huh?  Yep, blow-up dolls and how she uses them to enhance her writing.  Funny post!  I guarantee you’ll have a smile on your face after you read it!

Next, my hero in Storm Shadows, Marcus Tassel, is guest blogging on Stacy Juba’s 25 Years Ago Today blog.  Marc talks about the second time he saw his heroine in his visions.  We’d both like to thank Stacy for hosting us on her wonderful blog!

And that’s it from me today.  Off to label my beautiful apple jelly and maybe sit outside on the porch swing for a while and enjoy this gorgeous weather.  Hope everyone has a fabulous fall!

Thank goodness it’s Friday and the final day of my author spotlight at the Long and Short of It!  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed being in the spotlight, and for the most part, I’ve also enjoyed all the other promotions I’ve been doing, but I’m ready to get back to writing now.

One good thing about not being able to write whenever I want to, it just makes me want to write even more.  And while I was suffering from a bit of a block when I started all this promotion, I think that’s over for now.  Hmm…could that be the cure for writer’s block that every author’s been searching for–no time to write because of too many other commitments?  Could be or maybe it’s just that I’m contrary that way.

Whatever, after I clean up a few more summer contests and promotions I’m doing, I’m going to take at least a week to do nothing but write.  Woo-hoo!  In my world, that’s what you call paradise!

So anyway, here’s your little bit of BSP for the day:  on my final day in the spotlight over at the Long and Short of It, I’m talking about my favorite place in the world, the library.  Hope to see you there and don’t forget to enter the contest for a free signed copy of Snow Shadows and a large Storm Shadows coffee mug!

I’ve been meaning to get this post up for days now but never got around to it.  Sheesh, all these promotions are clogging my brain and since I have a hard time remembering things even when my mind is firing on all cylinders, I’m starting to wonder if I even have even one functional brain cell left.

Warning:  BSP ahead!

Are you still here?  Yeah, so okay, I’m in the Author Spotlight this week on Long and Short of It and I really hope you’ll hop on over and leave a comment on one of my guest blogs.  As an extra, added incentive, you can email the answer to the question beneath the blurb under my book covers and you’ll be entered for a free signed copy of Snow Shadows and a large Storm Shadows coffee mug.  So go on, you know you want to–or at least I hope you do!

Little side note here to the Red Sox–Stop Getting Hurt!  I love that you’re playing your hearts out and that you’ve worked your way into 2nd place in the AL East but seriously, the injuries have to stop.  Then again, maybe they don’t, maybe this is the perfect time to have all these injured players.  If you get it out of your system now, maybe that means the entire team will be healthy come September and everyone knows, the most important baseball is played in September.  Well okay, maybe not the most important, I suppose that would be in October but in order to be around in October, you have to play well in September, right?

Anyway, please stop with the injuries because it breaks my heart when I see any one of you go down and not just because that threatens our chance at a spot in the post season.  I understand that you’re playing to win, and I commend you for that, but I also want you all to be healthy.  Okay?  Okay!  Now, go out there and win one for the Gipper…no, wait a minute, wrong sport, go out there and win one for my Grand-niece Gabi who’ll be making her first appearance around September 8th.  She’s bound to be a true Red Sox fan, if her mom and I have anything to say about it, and I’d love nothing more than to be able to tell her when she’s older that her team won the World Series the year she was born in honor of her birth!

I keep falling behind with my promotions and right now I can’t see ever catching up.  I think I need a secretary…or maybe just a good schedule.  Yeah, that would work, provided I hire someone to stand behind me and crack the whip every once in a while to make sure I’m staying on task and accomplishing what I need to accomplish.

Glug, glug, glug.  That’s the sound of me drowning in all the things I need to do.  I know, I know, I can be a drama queen sometimes but seriously, right now if all those undone tasks were liquid, I’d be going under for the third time.  

Okay, enough with the drama.  I need a plan and I’m open for suggestions!  What do you do when you fall so far behind you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel?

In the meantime, I’m going outside to pick green beans and stake my tomato plants.  And maybe, the solution will come to me as I’m doing a couple of the things on my to-do list that I actually enjoy.

Ever wonder what authors like to do in their spare time?  Come on over to Coffee Time Romance and More to find out!  There are authors posting every day and I’ll be posting about my own “special interests” on June 20th.  Lots of fun–you don’t want to miss it so come on over!
