Crossing Over

Last month I submitted my latest mss to my editor at Wild Rose for consideration. This is Jake's story: the last in my series.

This week I got an e-mail from an editor at the Yellow Rose line at TWRP (Normally I write for the Champagne Rose line, which is contemporary romance.) Since Jake is a bull rider, and his riding is an integral part of the story, the mss was transferred over to the Yellow Rose line which is designated for contemporary western stories: in other words, the cowboy line. She said she was looking forward to reading the mss and would get back to me no later than December 1.

In some ways, December still seems so far away, but it was nice to know things are moving along. I'm excited that my series (If this story gets contracted!) will be somewhat of a cross-over at Wild Rose, spanning two different lines! Maybe it will even increase my reader base.

To celebrate, I thought I'd share some of the pictures I've taken at the rodeo over the past couple of years, featuring my favorite kind of cowboys: those bull riders!

Until next time,

Happy Reading!

I think the loudest event I have ever been to in my life was the Pendleton Round up in Oregon. These rodeo people play hard and party even harder.

The rodeo is kind of one big party. It's a blast to watch, that's for sure!
