Monday Mentionables

"Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world." ~Ada Louise Huxtable

Welcome to the first day of my "revised" blog...where I'll only be posting 3x/each week -- but I will be offering a giveaway to one lucky commenter each month! What's August's prize? Your choice of either a download of Diane Craver's brand new release Whitney in Charge, a download of my newest release One Night in Napa, or a print copy of The Write Ingredients, a cookbook of yummy recipes collected and organized by Lori Foster and featuring Samhain authors.


Worth mentioning this week:

I'll be signing copies of One Night in Napa at the Waldenbooks in the Oakdale Mall in Binghamton, NY on Saturday, August 29, from 1 - 4 pm.

I'll also be at the Monroe Cheese Festival in Monroe, NY, on Saturday, September 12, from 1 - 4 pm and the Pine Bush Harvest Festival in Pine Bush, NY, on Saturday, September 19, from 10 am - 4 pm.

Finally, my local RWA chapter is holding a luncheon workshop on Saturday, September 12 to welcome potential new members and have an informal meet and greet of its published authors. You can find more information here.


Finished my edits for Summer's Song yesterday, and for the first time I don't have a book under contract to think about! That's both good and I have to figure out what direction I want to go next, and which project I should focus on. Ah, decisions, decisions!

One Night in Cleveland? Did you think I'd forgotten? *G*

Allie Boniface said...

Aw, I get teased so much about that one...but I'm still gonna write it! You'll see...even Cleveland has romance!!

Diane Craver said...

Wow - thanks, Allie for including my Whitney book.

I love your idea of writing a romantic story in Cleveland - I know yours will make me feel that I'm right there. A famous romance author wrote 50 books with each one in a different state. She chose Cleveland for Ohio and I was so disappointed because she didn't mention anything about the area. It didn't even seem like it took place in Cleveland.

Now why didn't I think of making my weekend at the fair somehow profitable. I need to think of these things.

I'm sure you'll have something under contract in no time!
