January 2012 Newsletter

Well, it’s January, a time for new beginnings, or maybe for resurrecting a habit long gone. In this case, my newsletter!

It was a busy 2011 for me: I started a new day job here at the base, kinda pooped out on writing, and quit my other night job as the Editorial Director for Liquid Silver Books.

Here’s hoping that 2012 brings me a bit more time to sit back and enjoy reading and writing, which seem to have been banished from my vocabulary for too, too long.

On the writing management front, in 2011 I took several of my Keira Ramsay books and went indie with them. The first book of the Runequest series is free now at most major etailers, if you have a reading device and you’d like to try it out. But remember, the Keira books are spicier than the TL Schaefer ones!

For those of you who’d rather follow my updates on Facebook, then please feel free to sign up either on my fan page (where you’ll get the Facebook equivalent of this newsletter) or my main page, where all the rest of my stuff gets posted (to include blog and more personal stuff). Either way, folks who are subscribed to either the e-mail version of the newsletter (join at OR Facebook will be in the running for my monthly prize, and then we’ll do quarterly fun stuff that’ll include signed books, bling and all kinds of fun.

Right now I’m working on the second book in the CASI series, Shoot to Thrill, and when that’s done (hopefully SOON—fingers crossed) I’m gonna snag a Keira book I started a million years ago and want to finish because I really liked what I wrote back then, and can’t figure out why I put it down.

I’d also like to take a stab at working on a fun continuity story for my blog, but that’s probably for later in the year, if at all, since I’ve got about 10 stories in the queue right now that are all clamoring for my attention.

Gonna make this newsletter short and sweet, and announce the winner of the new and improved, sparky, shiny contest! And the winner of the $15 Amazon gift certificate is….Rendalay!

Hope to “see” all of you around, and looking forward to hearing from you!!
