Dear ones!

Do I have news for you? By golly, I think I do. News has just sparked its way down the wire that The Bewitching Mysteries will be moving to ... hardcover! This is big news for any author, so I'm celebrating. Snoopy dancing, in fact. Now, nothing in publishing happens quickly, so the 5th book in the series -- WHERE THERE'S A WITCH -- will be released as the usual mass market paperback on July 7, 2009. Book 6, however {my as yet unnamed monster-in-progress} will be coming out first as a hardcover release in April 2010, with the mass market paperback issue to follow later that summer. I'm so excited about this -- it's a big step for any author.

Did I tell you WHERE THERE'S A WITCH is already up for pre-order on Amazon? I'll also be posting an excerpt here and cover art just as soon as I can.

May 16 - 17th, 2009 -- Paranormacon! at the wonderful Fort Wayne Masonic Temple in Fort Wayne, Indiana. {Address: 216 E. Washington Blvd, Fort Wayne, Indiana} Yes, it's true. Fabulously gifted and renowned psychic medium Kristy Robinett and I will be speaking together once again with an eye toward Putting the Normal Back Into Paranormal.

Kristy and I are scheduled to be speaking on Sunday, the 17th from 1 to 3 p.m.

That's about it for today's update... Love to all!!

Mad {madly!}

Fort Wayne, Indiana? hmmm...wonder how far that is from Bloomington, Indiana. Moms radiation will be going on at that time. Wonder if we have downtime if we could swing by and catch you. I'll let you know when it gets closer.
