I mentioned previously that I was expecting another grandchild. I was fortunate enough to be able to fly down for the birth of my newest granddaughter Ava. Mother and daughter are doing great. She is a delightful baby and I am blessed that she is in my life.
I've been really focused on writing the next book in The Tea Series, Dark Tea. Along with the next release in The Girls Series, On The Road (again). While working on those I came up with something I believe to be really exciting for the whole issue about Bernie's trunk (okay, it was actually my son that thought of it, but it's a really good idea and I'm running with it). People have been waiting to peek into that trunk for so long, the moment deserves something special.
I'd also like to announce a new project. Not quite a series, more like a group of short novellas. I'm calling them The Blends. As you know, The Tea Series is a hybrid of both a novel and a serial. The series is really one long story. I love the approach. Unfortunately, in order to move the series along, I can't always divert and tell the whole story of each important character. For example, we now know that Teagan is engaged - but exactly what happened with that? People want to know. So, I've started writing about those important parts of the story that didn't quite fit in the series. First up, Romantic Blend. It is the story of Teagan and Jessie's engagement. Each story will be a stand alone, but they will all be centered around characters that we have met and gotten to know in The Tea Series.
