The holidays are finally upon us and this year it's a little strange. It doesn't feel like Christmas at all. As for feeling festive, well lets just say the only decorations I had the energy to put up this year was a Charlie Brown Christmas tree, and a wooden advent calendar my sister gave me.
I think I speak for many people when I say good riddance to 2020! I hope 2021 will be a much, much better year for us all!
As you can see below, Terri was successful in her attempts to get a shot of all the pups. This was the only half decent pic she got. As she said, trying to get them to sit and stay still long enough was up there with trying to herd cats! ?
The next Highland Brides story, Highland Treasure, is set to come out in less than a month, on January 26th! This is Rory Buchanan's story and I think this story contains the largest subset of secondary characters yet... it involves an entire town!
The reissue of the anthology My Immortal Highlander comes out on February 23rd.
The next Argeneau, book #32, Meant To Be Immortal, is scheduled to come out April 27! This is about Mac and C.J., two new characters to the scene. Mac Argeneau, one of Katricia's brothers, is new to town. No one knows him so it's strange that someone setting his house on fire would be the first thing to happen to him.
CJ Cummings is a no nonsense CSIS agent who's there to investigate a list of complaints against a local officer. Due to a shortage of local manpower, C.J.'s been asked to help out with the recent arson case. they've been thrown together and Mac discovers he can't read her.
Immortal Angel came out this past fall in North America, UK and Australia.
The reissue of the first book in the MacNachton series anthology, The Eternal Highlander, came out August 25th.
The reissue of Love Is Blind, one of my older hysterical historicals, came out June 30th.
The book that started it all, A Quick Bite, reissue came out in March. This is the first book in the Argeneau series and Lissianna and Greg's story. It's full of humor and passion, but it also sets the stage for many of the original Argeneaus.
What I'm working on...
I just finished the next Highland Brides book. I have plans for Alick in the future, but think he needs a little seasoning first. So, in the meantime we're going back to the first book and a relative of Ross and Annabel's whom we haven't heard about in quite a while, Bryson MacDonald.
The next Argeneau after Meant To Be Immortal is about Quinn (Pet's sister from The Trouble With Vampires) and Jet (Abigail's friend from Immortal Nights). I'm currently working through the first set of edits and it's going painfully slow. Edits are up there with going to the dentist so hopefully I'll be able to get them out of my hair soon. (Very few people actually enjoy goinig to the dentist, my hubby is one of those freakish few that do. However, I have an especially strong aversion to them, due to a bad childhood dentist who would give a shot of freezing so quickly as to make it painful and then start drilling before the anaesthetic took effect.)
And now the holidays are here, which means some long overdue rest and relaxation! For me this means plenty of time to cattch up on some reading and kill things on my PS4.
I hope you're all doing well and that these holidays give you a break away from the craziness happening all around us.
