A Crazy Year

One of the most difficult parts of being a writer is finding the patience to wait. We wait to hear back about submissions, then wait for the contract to come, wait and wait until release day. For someone born with no patience, this is a tall order!

Yet when I look back on the past year -- Wynter's first year in existence, I realize how swiftly things have actually moved. My very first book (as Wynter) was released in March 2010. Since then I've had fifteen stories published, which completely boggles my mind! I can't possibly be waiting as long as I think I am.

This is a big week for me. Tomorrow is my birthday and today is release day for my first book from Carina Press, Protective Custody. I'm also doing a blog tour and will be all over the blogoshere. If you'd like to find me and have a chance to win some of the prizes I am giving away, here's my schedule for the next couple of days:
Monday: Not Your Usual Suspects, You Gotta Read, Book Junkie. Tuesday: Manic Readers. Wednesday: Carina Press Blog, Romance Junkies, The Romance Dish. For a full list of blog stops and interviews, check my website.
So please wish me luck that I can keep up with all this promotion. All I can say is, it's been crazy - thank God!

Here's a little about Protective Custody:

Witness to a murder, but no one will believe her… 
Shocked by the brutal crime she witnesses through the window of her small office, Megan Jackson calls the police and is devastated when they question the truth of her story. With no body and no evidence of a crime, she’s written off as a nutcase. Megan suspects the killer saw her face. Terrified, she calls the only person she can trust—her ex-boyfriend and former police officer, Will McCoy.
Despite a devastating breakup, Will jumps at the chance to help the woman who broke his heart. When the killer ramps up the stakes, Will is forced to take her into hiding—where the passion they once shared reignites, deeper and hotter than ever. But can Will keep Megan alive long enough to win back her heart?

Wonderful news on the birthday and the release. I know what it's like to combat impatience. I do it every day. Impatiently. But yes you must have had a lot of non-waiting time this past year with fifteen stories. Way to go and the blurb sounds wonderful!
