I was going to send my first edition of the new, improved reader newsletter today, but promotions, publisher stuff, etc., forced me to schedule it for June 14. However, it’s all set up and ready to go, and this month’s maiden voyage will be touting new release info about my Smart Girls Gone Country series, the Montana Brides #1 & 2. Spoiler alert: there will be freebies and things on sale. There’s a link at the top of this website to sign up for the newsletter if you don’t want to miss out, so if you know someone who enjoys sweet, clean romance, and adventure romance set in the barely-tamed Rockies, then you’ve got time to send them a head’s up.
What else is new…? Well, here at Planet Tash it has been a crazy few weeks. Seamus had prom. I’ve been working on three books at once, which is downright luxurious after juggling four. Tim enjoyed a lot of antics messing with his Elon Musk Tower of Babel project, but hopefully he will fill you in on that soon.
Seamus’ graduation came and went, and I got some photos of him in his cap and gown. He decided not to walk with this class due to anxiety, and as a student who only learned his had Autism Spectrum Disorder three years ago, I have to say, it shows a lot of growth and maturity to handle it the way he did. No shame in this game! He has a few credits to finish up online before he can pick up his diploma, and he is already knocking out so much work! We’re super thrilled for him and I am so thankful for the support and cooperation we received from Floyd Central High School.
The other kiddos have been working on enjoying their summer vacation. I can hear our daughter practicing the harp as I type this (SO much better than any other student instrument!). It won’t be long before summer camps start up for the two youngest. They didn’t get to go last year due to the pandemic, so I’m sure this summer is going to be extra special! Our youngest son is spending time with his father right now and we sure miss him.
The oldest boy has moved into our basement, trading rooms with one of his brothers, and making him the third and likely final “basement dweller” in the family. Tim and I are scoping out real estate in Brown County, Indiana, and pondering a move to Nashville, which means we are also making a to do list for this house about a mile long. It will be some time before we list it officially for sale.
We have trips planned for Nashville and Bloomington coming up soon. Miss those parts. Looking forward to moving back “home” in the next few years. Funny how your heart knows when it is time. Who knows, maybe I’ll even finish up the sequel to This Brilliant Darkness when I’m back in the area.
My current work in progress is set in Brown County, so…why not? I have a feeling inspiration will abound, and soon. Just waiting on cover art, then I can set a release date for book one in my Miss Fitz series (a paranormal women’s fiction mystery series).
