So, Carolyn, Whatcha Been Up To? A SECRET Project?

Oh, hey! Good question!

Petting the cat. That’s one thing. Also petting the dogs. Important.

I sprained my ankle pretty badly right before Thanksgiving and spent a week barely able to walk and completely unable to drive. My son was home from college and it was a challenge to find someone to drive me to pick him up and return him to the bus to get to San Francisco and back to get here from/to school. I can drive and walk now, but my ankle is still bruised (so colorful!) and quite sore. Ouch. That should conclude the pity part of this post.

Oh, except for this: I have been unable to wear my normal totally cute shoes on my injured foot because 1) swelling 2) pain 3) my brace would destroy the shoe. I thought I’d cleverly put the right-foot half of my go-to pair of around-the-house shoes (well, everywhere shoes but whatever) out of the big dog’s reach. I was wrong. She retrieved my shoe from the bag where I had hidden it from her and chewed it to bits.

Wah!!! On the other hand, I can still wear the left one.

Writing News

1. Lucy and Thrale (The Next Historical) are coming along. I actually think I finally have a 1st chapter worth posting. I’m in the final phases of having something to send to editing. I’m close…

2. My secret project is about ready… I’m waiting on final covers and a few final edits before I prep the final files. Yes, covers. The name is “Whispers” and you can learn about it here.

3. I have some other news that’s good for me (and readers!) that I’ll only hint at. I want the paperwork in hand before I say anything for sure.
