First off, farewell to Bobby Charles, who wrote one of my favorite old songs that I associate with Louisiana. He died today in Abbeville. Take a listen.
New from the book front...the contracts are in my agent's hands and will be winging their way to me shortly assuming she doesn't find a problem with them. Yee-hah. Except....last night I realized I needed to get my backside in gear and work on the third book in the series. I'm supposed to have a proposal ready by April, which means (gulp) I have to really give serious thought to what's going to happen in it. So I am now juggling FOUR novels--ROYAL STREET is getting ready for revisions, RIVER ROAD is in crit group, STOCKHOLM is getting its first draft massaged out, and ELYSIAN FIELDS is in planning stages.
I need a nap. Or a Xanax.
