Look for things to be relatively quiet here over the next week as we retool and perform "model changeover."
We've got a new computer coming, which has already begun arriving in bits and pieces. This time it'll require a full reconfiguration of office space, as we're keeping the old one in order to give husband Paul his shot at the Internet.
Other things are happening, too. There will be big news in several areas once we get everything organized!

Hi, authors and writers:
As you probably noticed, Authors Secrets is on a hiatus, as the internet radio station ceased airing, but we are looking for a new home and will let you know.
In the meantime, we are inviting all of you to participate in a chat with the authors and editors at TRISKELION PUBLISHING, a new publisher for women's fiction (Romance, fantasy, horror, mysteries, historical, Science-fiction etc). This is your chance to ask the questions directly.
DATE OF CHAT: Wednesday, February 25, at 9pm EST (means 6pm on the west coast, 7pm in Arizona, etc. you do the math.)
Click on Chat at the bottom of the page then follow the directions to participate.
Hope to get a chance to talk to you guys there. This is a great place to get a feel for a new publisher, its editors, and the authors already writing for them. Triskelion is publishing in electronic format followed by print books. Find out more about them at www.triskelionpublishing.com
Talk to you tomorrow night on the chat.

Meanwhile, if you miss your book people by voice, check out the Dragon Page, which has an on-air radio program hosted at KFYI in Phoenix. this also comes in streaming audio!
