Countdowns and Deadlines ... oh my!

Six days and counting!! Six more days and HOMICIDE IN HARDCOVER will be out in the book stores! If you have a chance to buy it at your local independent mystery book store, that's always good for business. :-) It's also available at all the usual online suspects, too, wherever fabulous books are sold! *g* And I thank you. **End of commercial.**

And don't forget! I'm in the middle of the big countdown to publication and my contest is still going strong! Be sure to leave me a comment and you'll be eligible to win my Launch Party Package of books, gift cards, chocolates and more!

I'm also in the middle of a deadline. My second book in the Bibliophile Mystery series is due any day now. Talk about pressure! But it's a pressure I've wanted for so long, I wouldn't dream of complaining. Well, you might hear a little moan escape now and then, but no whining! When I look at the big picture and think of how many years I worked to get my books published, it's thrilling to have such problems.

One thing that helps is that I have wonderful romance writer friends who post things like ... this! I love my romance writer friends!

So ... are you under pressure? On a deadline? Racing around trying to get things done? Tell me all about it! I can relate.

The Countdown Continues!

Just a reminder that I've got a contest running all week in anticipation of Homicide in Hardcover arriving on bookshelves February 3. That's barely a week away! Leave me a comment and you'll be eligible to win a Launch Party Package of books, $25 Barnes & Noble gift certificate, chocolates, and more!

Okay, today I'm wondering if anyone remembers those questions James Lipton always asks at the end of The Actors' Studio. I really like those questions and always wanted to answer them for myself. Let's try one here today.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

I'd like to be a spy. I think I'd make a really good spy. And nobody would ever know I was spying on them -- because I'm invisible.

How about you? What would you like to be?

Countdown to Book Launch!

Welcome to Kate's Chronicles, my beautiful, new, professionally designed blog. Isn't it fabulous? Now that you know the way here, I hope you'll come by often to say hello!

You're also getting a sneak preview of what my newly designed website will look like. The website will be unveiled in the next few weeks but meanwhile, the images you see here are all connected to my new Bibliophile Mystery series which features Brooklyn Wainwright, a bookbinder specializing in rare book restoration. Brooklyn lives and works in San Francisco and that impressive looking tool you see up there belongs to her. No, it's not an instrument of torture, it's a book press, a bookbinders' tool!

Speaking of the Bibiophile Mysteries, the first book in the series, Homicide in Hardcover, is on the book shelves February 3. That's barely a week away! To start the celebration rolling, I'm blogging at Romance Bandits today, all about my book launch party next week. I hope you'll come by and help me plan the party. You could win an Amazon gift certificate!

And if you leave a comment here on Kate's Chronicles anytime this week, you'll be eligible to win a launch party package of books, Barnes & Noble gift certificate, chocolates and lots more fun stuff!

Let the party begin!

Free Books!

No, not mine! Not yet. Soon. But not yet. :-)

But my buddy Maureen Child is giving away a few copies of her latest fabulous paranormal, BEDEVILED! Stop by her blog sometime this week and leave here a comment, and you might win.

By the way, besides lots of fabulous buzz, BEDEVILED got a **starred review** in BOOKLIST, so you won't want to miss the chance to win it for your very own! The cover alone is worth the price of admission. Yum!
