Spring Fever

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  What are you doing this week??  I got my latest Harlequin Regency romance turned in (yay!!) and am getting caught up on a few things before diving into the next Elizabethan mystery.  Things like grocery shopping and running the vacuum cleaner, which always fall by the wayside when a deadline looms.  Among my projects–a fun round-robin story my local RWA chapter is doing with a St. Patrick’s Day theme!  Stay tuned for more info on that….

I am also announcing a winner!  The winner of a copy of A Stranger at Castonbury is…Emily!  Congrats!  Email me your info at amccabe7551 AT yahoo.com….

LadyAndMonstersCoverIn between taking a few naps and watching some DVDs that have piled up while I was working on the book (including all of season one of Girls, I have also been dreaming of spring.  Like many places, winter has been dismal here, with more gray skies and snow and freezing rain than usual.  (I also just read The Lady and Her Monsters, about Mary Shelley and the writing of Frankenstein, which included some depressing details of 1816’s Year Without a Summer.  It hasn’t been that bad here, but still…).  So I’ve been perusing garden catalogs and spring fashion websites (already bought some shorts at J Crew!).



If I was in the Regency this is the outfit I would be wanting to wear now (from my Regency Pinterest page!):

And we could go out for a nice drive on a sunny afternoon:


What are you looking forward to this spring???

This week I’m rounding the corner on Chapter 25 of mess-in-progress. Nice but I don’t know how many chapters there still are–one of the consequences of pantsing for a change.

Don’t shoot me but I’m not totally ready for spring. I had the flu so much this winter I only got to ski once. Now that I’m better (knocking on wood) I hope to get out a few more times. There’s good skiing to be done in March–good snow and no lift lines. 🙂

I blogged about pining for spring myself on my Diane’s Blog site.

Yay on finishing the book. I’m chasing a deadline myself
