I haven’t been around lately. I’ve been a busy busy girl!
I’ve been working my way through a marketing class, which has led to some changes around here. This is kind of the in between version of my website. I have actually started building a brand new site with Cloudpress. Cloudpress is a nifty concept. It allows you to build a brand new wordpress theme without knowing a lick of CSS or PHP. There’s a learning curve and it’s a relatively new technology, so they haven’t worked out all the kinks. My site was problematic to the way they are designed because I have 10 years of content and my XML file was too big to easily import. I eventually found a way to do it on my own (because their tech support is uncommunicative and not helpful if you have anything that’s not a simple problem–my repeated inquiries were met with a suggestion that perhaps their service was not best for my project–in other words, please go away, we don’t want to deal with you). But there are a variety of other things I’m still working on there to make sure there’s a smooth transition when that happens (because this isn’t a matter of just importing and installing a new theme–it means installing a plugin to link your site to the version on their servers, and that version will OVERWRITE your site entirely…hence the need to get EEEEVERYTHING set up correctly because it would be very easy to lose stuff). I’ve been working on the new site in a sandbox and will unroll it…whenever I finally finish. Anyway, I made some changes here to kind of ease things in the direction I’m headed.
I got started on the second book in my Sooper Secret Project trilogy, did an outline for another Wishful novella (because you ARE going to find out about Gerald Peyton’s mystery woman), and I just got back my revision notes from my editor on Just For This Moment. They aren’t bad at all, and I should be finished by the end of the week. You may have noticed that the preorder links are going up, with a planned release of March 31st.
In more normal world events, I’m in the midst of updating one of my classes for summer to go with a new textbook (I hate when I have to do that). So that’s sucking up some time I’d rather be doing other things. Someday I won’t have to do that.

Anyway, just wanted to pop in and say I’m still around!
