I’m off by a day.
Long weekends always through me off. Yesterday I thought it was Sunday, today was Monday when I woke up. It’s a good thing I figured things out mid day or I would miss my plane. (I’m headed to Birmingham (Alabama) tomorrow.)
ANYway, last week I posted book news, which is that the paperback of The Splendor Falls comes out on January 11, 2011, and that I have a new book, titled Texas Gothic, coming out in early summer.
Then I asked y’all what you thought a book with that title would be about, which was a big mistake, because your ideas were so good, I’m totally
stealing them intimidated that the actual plot won’t measure up. That’s what I get for having creative readers.
All the comments were so great, anyone who submitted one gets a prize. (You just have to wait until I get back from Alabama next week, provided I don’t wig out (again) on the plane and end up detained by Homeland Security.) Just email me at rosemary at readrosemary dot com and I’ll send you a neato keen button… either Maggie Quinn or Splendor Falls. (Or both, if you ask nicely. But only one each.)
What’s the book really about?
Amy Goodnight is the only normal one in a family of psychics, ghost whisperers, kitchen witches and mad scientists. She’s looking forward to escaping her family’s reputation in college, but first she has to spend the summer farm-sitting for her Aunt Hyacinth. Unfortunately, she can’t escape the freaky, as magic, ghosts, dead bodies, ancient secrets and modern feuds keep her hopping. (And one handsome cowboy just keeps her hopping mad.)
If you like the Maggie Quinn books, you’ll definitely like Amy and her sister Phin, and if you enjoy The Splendor Falls, this has a lot of the spooky romance from that book, plus the adventure of the Girl vs. Evil series. Something for everyone.
Talk to you next from Beautiful Birmingham!
(Dear Homeland Security. Just kidding about wigging out. Really. I’ll be fine.)
