Want to help write the book?

If you know anything about me, then you won't be surprised when I say that contemporary romance isn't my usual genre. I do write romance, but my other book-length fiction is Regency romance; in other words, adventurous fun and romance during the era of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice..

I'm hard at work on my sequel to Before the Season Ends, my award-winning first book, which is why I'm inviting you to chime in now--while I take a break from finishing The Swimsuit Club,--to say what you'd like to see in the book. Read the posts on this blog, and get a feel for the characters. Then, let me know if there's an issue I haven't addressed that you think would be a good fit for the book. When I get back to work on this book, I'll take your ideas into consideration, and if I choose to add an element or character trait suggested by a reader--like you!--I'll award the person who thought it up with a free copy of the book when it's published, and a mention in my acknowledgements. If you haven 't already, you'll see your name in print!

What am I looking for? Sharona's got trust issues; Angela's got a techno-wizard of a kitchen, but no one around to put a ring on her finger. Frannie is a borderline anorexic(or not so borderline; you'll find out in the book). See the trend, here? Every lady in the club, as well as the fellows in the story, have a certain problem they really need help with. Tell me a problem you'd like to see addressed; and even which character should have to deal with the issue, if you know. Just leave your suggestions in the comment box. If you'd like to email me, tell me that in the comment box, and I'll get in touch with you. (Sorry--Tasteless SPAM forces me to cloak my email).

SO--get those ideas rolling in!
