Back to blogging

Where have I been? Not lying around on a beach like these elephant seals.

After I finished the first draft of Bedding Lord Ned, I went into revision mode. It takes me about a month of intense work to get a manuscript whipped into shape. Then we dashed off to San Francisco to visit third son who moved there this summer--drove alone cross county with his mother trying very hard not to worry--and his fiancee and her family. We visited these seals in the course of our travels. Too bad we don't have sound on the blog...well, maybe it's a good thing. They make rather rude noises.

Once back home, it was time to start the next book. And then copy edits for my May novella, The Duchess of Love, showed up via computer. They were my first experience with e-edits--my old eyes were NOT happy. And then, when I'd barely caught my breath, the novella page proofs were on my doorstep.

Anyway, I'm back now because my agent is doing the twelve days of Bookmas again. You can read all about it here. The first clue goes up tomorrow at noon EST...once I figure out what the clue will be. Any you might get some more SF pictures.


  1. Hey Sally! Please do post some more SF pics, I'm going in July (have never been), and am super excited. And know that all your hard work is appreciated!


  2. Oh, Angie, you may regret that you asked, lol!!! Now I feel I have justification--but yes, I'll post pictures. One word of advice--be sure to pack layers. SF in the summer can be quite chilly. The RWA national conference was there a couple years ago and I was very surprised. Everyone told me Mark Twain once said: "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." says he never actually said that, but the sentiment is true.
