Holiday Greetings!

Hello from deep within the bowels of the Deadline Cave. I'm busy, busy, busy, hard at work on book three of my Bibliophile mysteries, so yes, my blogging time has definitely suffered. :-(

So, what's going on in Kate's world? Well, in October I flew off to Indiana to attend my first Bouchercon convention. Indianapolis was beautiful and I had a great time attending workshops, meeting wonderful new authors and getting to know some fabulous booksellers and librarians.

Just a few weeks ago, I spent the evening with a fabulous group of fiction readers at the Barnes & Noble in Huntington Beach. What a great group!

I gave a workshop on self-promotion at my local RWA chapter. Isn't public speaking supposed to be more scary than dying? I think I might agree with that. But since it was my home chapter and lots of friends were in the audience, I guess you could say it was scary and fun, all at the same time.

I'm thrilled to have recently sold my second romance to Silhouette Desire! Yippee!

And by the way, have you seen my beautiful cover for IF BOOKS COULD KILL? This is book two of the Bibliophile mysteries and it comes out in February 2010!

I'm on Facebook now, so please come by and visit!

And finally, I just found out that HOMICIDE IN HARDCOVER was nominated for an RT award for Best First Mystery! I'm so honored! Woohoo!!

I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving had a wonderful day, and I wish you all a happy and healthy holiday season!
