Hello out there!

Wow--it's been a LONG time since I posted here. I'm sorry! It's hectic like crazy keeping up with two personalities! Lol! Apparently, I'm not very good at it! I do apologize, folks.

I hope everyone had fabulous holidays, a super-start to a great new year, and everyone's reading superb books!

Savannah, GA has been hit with some seriously cold/wet weather this winter, so I thought I'd post a nice beachy scene to warm us all up ;)

A little update: Unfortunately, I don't have news that a new Cindy Miles novel is in the works, BUT--for those of you who read MacGowen's Ghost and Thirteen Chances, you may remember Captain Justin Catesby? I've given him a little happy-like ending in a short story that will release via The Mammoth Books in October! The Mammoth Book of Ghost Romances! I don't have a cover yet, but I will post it on the website as soon as I get it. My short story is called THE HEART THIEF. More updates on that one later!

What I'm working on: Well...I'm not only working with a new agent, but a new editor, as well. :) I'm THRILLED with both! The super-talented, highly-energetic and just plain NICE, DEIDRE KNIGHT, from The Knight Agency, is representing me now, and we are excited about a number of projects! My new editor at NAL is the lovely and enthused Jhanteigh Kupihea, and I'm so happy to be on her list of authors!

I'm on the last installment of the Savannah Vampires series, The Dark Ink Chronicles. Book Three, EVENTIDE, is due to release March 2012. That deadline for that book is March 1st, so I've been busy on it!! At the same time, I'm changing gears a bit and working on some younger projects that I'm SO excited about!!!! The second I can divulge the info, I will!!!

Meanwhile, THANK YOU, Readers! The Cindy Miles books are still selling, and as you know, they are my HEART. I really miss writing them, and hope to one day get the chance to work on them again--especially Jason's story. :) I love him!

And thank you to all the new readers of Cindy Miles books, for sending me the greatest emails! I really appreciate them!!!

On a personal baby (well, 17 year old daughter!) graduates high school in May (SOB!) and we are headed to Scotland for 3 weeks for a pre-college trip! I hope to gain inspiration for new material, stomp around some old castles, and hit a few new places that I haven't been to before, like the Orkney Isles. So excited!

Well I hope all of you are staying warm, reading lots, and keeping healthy! I will try my best to post at least once a month here, so check in, leave me a comment, and enjoy the site!

Happy 2011!!!!!
