The Big D

So I recently had a jam-packed visit to Dallas, Texas. I stayed with some friends of mine who are fantastic hosts, the kind of people who make a houseguest feel as though she'd like to move in. ;) (Thanks, Larry & Jane!)

In addition to visiting my friends, I spoke to a creative writing class at a Dallas high school, which I think was as energizing for me as it was for the kids. I also had lunch with a friend who's an aspiring author.

This is Peaches, the FreshFiction mascot.

Also while in Dallas, I visited a FreshFiction readers' tea as a guest author. They are a fabulous group of women who read tons and have wonderful and entertaining insights on lots of topics, not just books. They make me wish I lived in Dallas, so I could become a regular reader member.

Overall, January's been terrific for connecting with old friends and making new ones.

How about Kellan for Zach?

What about Kellan Lutz for Zach? He's blond, blue-eyed, and buff. Another possibility would be Channing Tatum if we dyed his hair blond. Channing's a Southern boy from Alabama.

Who would I cast?

Thoughts of casting the characters sometimes comes up when I'm guest-blogging or when I get emails asking if there will ever be a Southern Witch movie.

I think Isla Fisher would make a good Tammy because she's beautiful in a cute sort of way, is often hilariously funny in her roles, and has red hair, of course.

I couldn't come up with a Bryn at first, but then Liz, one of the fans of the series, suggested Henry Cavill. I googled and saw this picture of him and thought...yeah, that works. Now I have a couple of his pictures stuck to the top of my Halfway Hexed storyboard.

So far, I still haven't come up with a good Zach, but surfing the net for him is a fun pasttime.

Happy New Year!

Happy 2010!

Last year, I decided not to make any New Year's Resolutions. After all, I was working and had two book releases scheduled and so much to do...but this year I'm thinking taking a good life and making it better is a great idea.

Kimber's New Year's Resolutions

1.) Return to regular exercise

2.) Eat more fresh produce and more organic foods

3.) Have even more fun with writing
(By: completing Halfway Hexed and brainstorming new stories)

4.) Connect more often with friends, family, and readers

So, what about you? Any new year's resolutions?

Kissing the Suspect Release!

Chapter 1 Callie Melville was wanted by the law, but to put it that way made things sound worse than they were. She hoped. The rumors...
