This Week on The Variety Pages
Tuesday: Ch. 31 of The Biker's Wench
Friday: Ch. 32 of The Biker's Wench
I almost forgot – the giveaway for eight ARC's of Desert Heat is online at Goodreads now, so enter if you want a chance at one of those! If you would like a digital copy in exchange for a review, email me, and I'll put you on the list. Digital review copies should be ready to go sometime next week. Sample chapters are available in the left sidebar - feel free to download, read, pass along to friends, etc.
And of course Tempest (ebook) is 99 cents for the holidays, so now's a great time to get a copy, or send one as a gift. It will go back to regular price as of January 2, 2011.
As far as writing goes, I've been doing pretty well keeping up with things, though I did decide to discontinue the "choose your own" style erotica serial I've been working on. I'll start a new regular serial for that this coming weekend. The edits for Desert Heat are coming along nicely and I really want to have them done by Tuesday so I can get the book formatted and proof copies ordered before Christmas. Once that's out of the way, it's smooth sailing right up to release day, so I'll be happy to have that done. And The Minister's Maid just sort of "clicked" with the chapters I wrote for TBW this week, so I can continue working on that now as well. So everything's moving forward nicely.
On personal goals, my Christmas cards aren't done yet (I know!), so I need to get them out this week. Most will be late, but at least they'll get there, right? The shopping is done, the wrapping will probably get done on Friday (since I'm off work), and that should do it for Christmas. I have new dress pants, and I've been reading up a storm, though I still have a ton of books on my TBR-ASAP list.

Two chapters for TBW
One chapter for new erotica serial
