Pleasanton, California

I spent last week with a group of writers who were working on elevating their stories to breakout novel status. It was quite inspiring to see artists hard at work. In addition to helping them with their stories, I did some work planning a proposal for Book 3 in the Southern Witch Series.

Pleasanton, California where we stayed was lovely. Main Street has the look and feel of an older era. (I wish I had taken a picture of it to show you. The one above just shows wonderful fall color.) Anyway, I couldn't help but wonder if the creators of the movie Pleasantville (which I loved) had been to Pleasanton for inspiration.

Have a wonderful week!

Looks like an aptly named place.

Paul -

It definitely is. And the employees at the Sheraton where we stayed were terrific.

It was wonderful getting to know you.

I'll send you pix once I get a chance to download them. I'm still mentally unpacking from that week and am afraid to start doing a task which might be allowing myself to procrastinate on writing.

So thrilled to know there is going to be a book 3. Enchantress Tammy Jo has become essential to my book collection (both on my shelf and in my kindle). The only bummer is the wait until September when book 2 arrives!

Linda -

It was so wonderful meeting you, too!

I don't know about you, but it took me a couple of days to settle back in to my routine. I've mostly been reading rather than writing...but I'm getting back to work now. (You should , too! I expect wonderful things from you.)

I'm so glad that you liked Would-Be Witch! Having readers means so much to me. :)

I should clarify that it's not official about there being a Book 3 yet. I'm working on the proposal for it. I have to turn that in and then Berkley has to decide if they want to continue the series.

I do think that chances are good that they'll be interested in a third book. Fingers crossed...

Some years ago on Xmas Eve, I tried to recreate a dessert from a cookbook called Death by Chocolate: The Last Word on a Consuming Passion...
