Coming soon, personal news,and a winner!

Hi all!  The winner for Catt Ford's contest is Sin Chan.  Please comment on this post so I can get you the GC.  I'll need your email addy and your DSP account if it's different.

So, exciting news for fans of Fire Horse.  The sequel, Ride-Off, is scheduled for release in October.  No firm date yet, but watch for it on the Dreamspinner Coming Soon Page in September.  There's a brand new character in this novel who won the hearts of my entire critique group.  He's no threat to Preston and Konrad so everyone relax.  Ned and his young lover, Bandi, are in this sequel, as well as a few more surprises.  I can't wait to share it with you. I'll be gone for most of September so we're doing edits very early.  I may have a cover to share before I leave, but it'll depend on how busy Anne Cain is.  

Now, for more personal news.  After years of wishing, hoping, and saving, I'm FINALLY going on a fabulous 3 week land tour of England, Scotland, and Ireland.  Blame Diana Gabaldon and her Outlander series for my obsession with everything Scottish.  She got me hooked years ago, and it got worse with each new book she released.  Guess what they're filming while I'm there?  The Outlander mini-series will start filming in September.  For those who don't know, it's going to release on the Starz channel in 2014.  This has been in the works forever, and it's just my dumb luck to be there when they start! I might even bump into a member of cast.  Wouldn't that be cool?  The actor who's playing Jamie Fraser is Scottish and bloody gorgeous.  Sam Heughan is his name.  Search for images and you'll see what I mean.  Do I sound like a fangirl?  I am, I am, I am!  So excited!  Anyway, I'll take tons of pictures and will post when I get back at the end of the month.

Wish me luck everyone.  I'll finally get to see what's underneath a kilt:)
