I need a kickstart to finish my WIP

Yesterday was my birthday, and I have to confess I used it, not to write but to celebrate. I'm not sure why becoming another year older is a reason to celebrate--seems the years are speeding past all to quickly when you're on the slippery slope side of life. Anyway, I procrastinated on finishing the ending of my next book and instead went to my daughter's for the day. We had a great time, and the weather was almost spring-like. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner and glasses of Asti Spumanti. While himself watched football, I was treated to a foot massage. Ahhhhh.

Today, however, is another day and I must tackle the resolution of my WIP.

Love Engineered

Love Engineered, a Victorian-set novel is a review and giveaway today on Reviews by Martha. Check it out.

Late Harvest featured book today at Fiction Witches

I'm so pleased that my gal pals are busy pimping my wine country contemporary today.

Late Harvest is set in the fabulous Mendocino wine country and features a hunky German hero, a precocious five-year-old and a host of secondary characters that include a couple of gypsies and a feisty old Appalachian woman (Sharp as a Toledo blade, and with the directness of a bordello madam, Mags Emory had never couched her thoughts. She never missed a thing. She knew all the under-workings at Cresthaven. Or almost all of them.).

I loved doing the research--staying in quaint bed and breakfasts, interviewing winery owners, tasting an astonishing assortment of late harvest wines (dirty job, but I had to do it). This story which was originally a Golden Heart finalist, is one of my favorites, not only for the story but because I broke the rules. (Still remember my then NY editor telling me "We don't like Germans." I like to think my German grandfather is smiling from his grave.)
