For those of you who follow my blog posts here at my personal Weblog, you may not be aware that I also post every Thursday at "Dishin' It Out" and monthly at "A Slice of Orange" (RWA's Orange Country Chapter), "Gems of the Attic" (authors of the Precious Gem Romance line) and at BWL Insider (my publisher's blog feature their authors).
