And itâ€™s not just book deadlines that are driving me nuts these days. Iâ€™ve taken on blog guest appearances in addition to my weekly post on Killer Hobbies and my monthly post here at A Slice of Orange.
Plus, Iâ€™ve thrown myself into pet rescue after all the research Iâ€™ve done and continue to do for my new Pet Rescue Mystery series, which started in March with BEAGLEMANIA. I volunteer weekly as a dog adoption counselor at a local private shelter, plus Iâ€™ve become the L.A. Pet Rescue Examiner. I have to admit that I havenâ€™t been posting articles for the Examiner as often as Iâ€™d like, but I hope to remedy that–and in the meantime Iâ€™m collecting some good stuff to talk about there.

Then thereâ€™ve been the signings and other appearances, including my upcoming signing at the Mysterious Galaxy Bookshop in San Diego. Conferences, including a day at Romantic Times, then Malice Domestic, followed by the Festival of Mystery held by the Mystery Lovers Bookshop.
As I said last month, I miss OCC and hope to get there for a meeting soon. Meantime, hi to all of you.
