The Edit Process--Not a Pain but an Opportunity

On an author loop I'm on, Tymber Dalton posted this reply to a new author who was discouraged over her first round of edits. I loved her reply so much that I asked if I could use it on my blog. Well, great minds think alike, and she'd already posted it to her blog.

If edits are getting you down, read Tymber's The Edit Process: of Tires and Pastry Chefs:

You'll find Tymber's take on editing encouraging and entertaining.

Returning to the San Juan Islands

My first two books were set in Washington State's San Juan Islands. The next two, including my new football series, were both set in the Seattle area. With Book 2 of the Seattle Lumberjacks Series, I'm returning to the San Juans, as Tyler, the cocky quarterback in Fourth and Goal, inherits a rundown mansion in the San Juans with one caveat. He must stay in the mansion for ninety days before he can legally own the valuable waterfront property.

This year I also returned to the San Juan Islands in another way. It's been years since I've boated to the San Juans, but my husband and I were lucky enough to spend 10 days in the islands on a boat this August. To see pictures of the trip, friend me on Facebook. Here's a teaser:
