Also this summer: our annual July 4th bash with lots of guests at our Idaho home, a family reunion in Kentucky, and the annual authors' retreat at our Idaho home. Somewhere in the mix was the ChiLibris retreat (which I attended only for a few hours due to book signings), ICRS, and a business trip with hubby to Sun Mountain Resort in Washington State.
Before leaving on the tour I turned in the manuscript for Over the Edge, my novel about Lyme Disease. Over the Edge will release in May of 2011—during Lyme Awareness month. The book is another Seatbelt Suspense® story, this one interwoven with information about Lyme Disease and the "Lyme wars" in the medical community, pitting doctors who won't treat the disease long term against patients who desperately need help. I'm already excited about the release of this novel. For incredible stories of people fighting Lyme, check out my new blog Lyme-Over the Edge.
