Almost two weeks ago, I hinted that I had projects in the works I couldn't talk about. Guess what? I still can't talk about them. But I might be getting closer.

Meanwhile, life goes on. I finished my big postcard project. The bookmark project continues, and I've been signing between 50-100 bookmarks a night because the requests keep coming in. Yesterday I got a note from an indy bookstore in Central New York asking for them. You bet! The package is ready to go, along with a request for bookplates from a library in California, and a request for a bookmark from a fan.

A fan. I always hoped I'd have fans, but I never believed it would happen. And now I want some sycophants. (Anybody wanna lobby for the job?)

Progress on the new book hasn't been as good as I'd hoped, but I'm inching along and have already made the bare minimum word count for the month. (I have today and tomorrow--just think what I might still accomplish!)

Bookmarked for Death has been popping up all over the place. Weeeeee! I'm guest blogging next Wednesday on The Diva Dishes, and next Saturday on Poe's Deadly Daughters. I guess that'll be my blog tour for the book. Much less than I did for Dead In Red, but I've been so busy with other promotion, I didn't get off my duff and scout around for guesting opportunities. Then again, I'd have to write six or seven different posts, and I have enough trouble coming up with ideas to keep this blog going.

Speaking of this blog, I've contracted for a new banner. I got to see the first pass and I LOVE it. I hope to post it sometimes next week.
And then there are the secrets I alluded to up above. If even one of them comes through, I will be a LOT busier in the not-so-distant future. I'm thrilled and terrified at the same time.
