Hello 2006!

The new year is upon us and I have to say I'm really excited about it. For one thing the Crime Sistahs, Pamela, Gammy and I, all have new books coming out this year. Pamela's debut legal thriller, Every Reasonable Doubt, will be released in February, Gammy's new book, Down & Dirty, the sequel to A Landlord's Tale, will be released in March, and my second Kendra Clayton mystery, Tangled Roots, will be out in either June, if you go by what Amazon says, or May according to my editor. I was really surprised to notice on Amazon today that a mass market paperback edition of The Company You Keep will be released this year in May as well. Who knew?

I'm anxious to see how my second book will be received. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. I think my writing has improved and hope people will find it as entertaining as my first one. It will be interesting to see what my cover will look like and what my newly acquired and renamed publisher, Kimani Press, will be doing differently as far as promotion. I will be working with freelance publicist Susan Schwartzman again. Hopefully between Susan, my publisher, and myself we will be able to expand my readership. I'm currently working on the last book in my contract and can only assume that more Kendra books will depend on the success of the first three. So, I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that the Kendra Clayton series will really take off.

This is also the year that I will be turning the big FOUR OH. Forty! Wow! Actually, I'm not filled with dread at the thought of turning forty. My only regret is all the wasted time and missed opportunities. But nothing is gained by dwelling on the past. I'm trully looking forward to 2006 and all the possiblities that come with it.
