Contest! Blog post! Hello!

Is that cool or what? It's the Knit Kit (you can read more about it here) and one lucky knitter will win one on Saturday when my new Human Random Number Generator plucks a number from the cosmos. (Translation: "Hey, Goldisox! Pick a number between 1 and 8372.") (Trust me, 8372 is a wildly inflated number. Your chances are much better.)

All you have to do is send me an email here with KNITKIT in the subject header and I'll do the rest.

It's been a crazy couple of weeks around here. First I finished the sequel to CASTING SPELLS then I sent it off. Then the copy-edited version came back to me. Then I sent that off. Now the page edits are screaming for my attention this weekend. Add to that a ton of promo stuff (script for video; Author Buzz info; answering mail that's been languishing longer than I care to admit) and new proposals and I feel like my head's going to pop off.

I've been longing to knit but it's been relegated to car time only which means not much is getting done. I hope to remedy that over the weekend and cast on some new, fun stuff. (Meaning: enough already with the Lion Brand spiral socks. This girl needs some spice in her knitting life.)

Now here comes the confessional part of the program: I've been cheating on you with other blogs. Honestly, it's not you, it's me. But the truth is out there and you can see for yourself.

Part 6 of my grandmother's story is here and available now at Totebags 'n' Blogs. (Book giveaway in progress.)

Where ideas come from -- CASTING SPELLS specifically -- will be up and running here at Fang-tastic Books tomorrow. (And another giveaway.)

I hope you'll stop by and say hi.

Don't laugh but I'm going to plant tomatoes next week. It'll probably go as well as my attempts to knit lace but the gardening urge is irresistible this year. Now if we can just keep the deer and rabbits away we might get somewhere . . .

More to come on that tomorrow.

Laced With Magic

My editor emailed me my new cover on Friday and I'm ecstatic!

LACED WITH MAGIC is the sequel to last year's CASTING SPELLS, the second in the Sugar Maple series featuring Chloe the knitting sorceress and Luke the all-too-human cop.

Pub date is August 4, 2009.

If I manage to get myself organized, I'll post the first chapter on my website later this week.

Watch this space!

Interview with Dallas Book Diva Cheryl Nason

Tomorrow morning is the phone interview with Cheryl Nason, The Dallas Book Diva, and I'm getting very excited about it. I have no idea what she'll ask and, even scarier, I have no idea what I'll say. Things tend to fly out of my mouth before my brain engages and that can be either great fun or terrifying!

The only bad thing is that it's a morning interview and as we all know I'm a night person. I hope I sound coherent, if not intelligent.

You'll be able to hear for yourself in a few days. Cheryl will post a review of CASTING SPELLS and a MP3 of the interview on her site. I'll let you know when it's up.

Hold a good thought for me around 10 a.m. EDT!
