Just got back from Romance Writers of America National conference. Am quite done in. Really. But I came home to an awesome email- the cover for the next Halloween Anthology. I have a story in it called The True Believers. This is a wicked cool cover and I’m happy with it. Whortleberry Press is stepping up their game with these covers. This one reminds me of the cemeteries in New Orleans.
I believe the book will be available Sept. 1, 2010. The last one came out a week early so we’ll see if this one does as well.
Is now available to order: here is the link: http://whortleberrypress.com/
My story is called Rumpelstiltskin’s Quest. Hope you’ll enjoy it if you read it. It was a fun one to write.
Had a plan for a story for a Halloween anthology- had the first ten or so lines rattling around in my head for a few days. It was going to take place in New Orleans- or near New Orleans, I should say. At Oak Alley. But, little did I know, the trip to Pensacola Lighthouse with Cynthia Eden on the 4th of July weekend for a ghost hunt was still lurking in the old noggin.
Started the story and lo and behold, these characters were NOT at Oak Alley, they were at the lighthouse. Rascals. Didn’t let me in on that one til the writing process was underway. I always say I like to be surprised by my characters and they got me this time.

Woke up this moring with the premise of a story I plan to submit to an anthology about Dream Lovers. Here’s the place that inspired me. Check out the lovely gardens. Can’t you imagine a dream lover here?
