Or is it that I stay busy? Because, really, when am I NOT busy?
Whatever the case, I’ve got lots going on this month—no April fooling!
First, I’m excited to have released my first non-fiction in many years, a book that has been requested for as long as I have been teaching “The Chunky Method of Time Management for Writers.” THE CHUNKY METHOD HANDBOOK: Your Step-By-Step Plan to WRITE THAT BOOK Even When Life Gets in the Way has been a project of mine for many years. I have always been fascinated with productivity, especially how it applies to creative fields like writing. Over the course of my career I’ve developed a practical system for getting words down on the page to meet a deadline, and I’m thrilled to share it with writers everywhere. Now you know why I take it as a compliment when someone calls me “The Chunky Lady!” If you’re interested, you can sign up to join “The Chunky Nation” and receive a free Chunky Method Calculator here.
I’ve also been busy with my April Love Inspired Historical, THE DOCTOR’S UNDOING. Readers who loved Ida Lee Landway from HOMEFRONT HERO will be pleased to see Ida get her own happy ending. It’s garnered one of my favorite reviews ever from RT magazine, which gave it 4 stars and called it “a delightful read filled with laughable scenes, adorable children, and sigh-worthy romantic moments.” They also said the epilogue “made for a great ending.” That sure put a smile on my face.
With our children grown off on their own and in college, we are hosting our extended family for the Easter holiday. I’m making a ham, deviled eggs (a Pleiter must-have), and apple pie while others are bringing sides and such. What’s on the menu at your house?
