Sold my book? No. Not yet.
But I did get my oldest daughter, my first to leave the nest, settled into college seven hours away. And I'm proud to say I did it with a minimum of tears. (Although I lost it after I returned home and popped my head into her still messy room, which still smelled of her incense, and didn't see her lying in bed watching TV.)

At the same time I will begin brainstorming another medical romance and maybe dabble in my military series which sadly has taken a backseat of late.
So what's new with you? Share your successes, I can't wait to read about them.
