Covers and stuff

Sorry, I think I wrote in my last blog that my YA book was called Party Girl, but the title is actually a working title. I think it might be called Party of Three or The Party Planner. Obviously, there are a lot of parties in the book. Very fun and light hearted like all my other books. I also saw the sketch for the cover which is always very exciting.
Also, just got my German edition of Roommates. It's always so fun to get new covers. I'm so sentimental that way. I love getting all the foreign books, even though I have no idea what they say on them.
I've been staying up way too late watching horribly addictive shows like The Hills. These shows are like a bad hangover. I regret staying up watching them when I struggle to wake the next morning. What the hell is wrong with those girls on The Hills? I know I went for some idiots, but Justin Bobby? I've also become glued to The Rock Life, which makes me extremely nostalgic. My husband played in a rock band for ten years, and I have to say there are a lot of similarites there. I miss the old shows at The Viper Room etc. Don't miss having him on the road though or the long hours in the studio. His old band, Louis XIV, is releasing a new CD this fall and they gave us a demo at my daughter's b-day party. I LOVE it. I've been listening to it while writing and it's so sexy.
All right, off to watch the Charger's game.

Crazy week

What a week! Wednesday, had my Fox 6 television interview. Much to my surprise, I didn't pass out on live television. This is my third appearance on their morning show, and fainting or having a heart attack is always a concern. Angela Chee, the anchor, is just lovely and asked great questions. Charlotte (my one year old) waited in the green room while I went on. From what I understand, she terrorized the pet of the day, a very patient and apparently kid friendly Australian Shepherd who was up for adoption. I forget the dog's name but he was due to appear on TV later in the show. Hope he found a good home!

Thursday was my San Diego book signing. It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces and new faces too! I can't tell everyone who went how much it means to me to have the support. Without you guys, I wouldn't have a job! So thank you, thank you, thank you!

Woke up Friday morning and jetted off to Los Angeles where my niece was born about 24 hrs later -- a girl named Sophie. Obviously, I love the name Sophie as it was my French name in high school. I'm so honored that they named the baby after me. Hee! Hee! Seriously, Sophie is a beauty. I'm so excited that she's here!

Well, my own baby is having a day with my husband and the in-laws while I get some writing accomplished. So it's time to visit to my new characters in the young adult book, as of now titled Party Girl.

Still really busy. I absolutely love writing my young adult novel. It's coming along very well, and I 've really enjoyed reading other YA novels this summer. I think my favorite one was Lost It by Kristen Tracy. She is so talented. I think it's one that all ages will enjoy.
I have about a million books I'd like to read. I've been tripping over the stack in the middle of the night when I get up to check on my daughter.
What else? My sister's baby is due any day now and I'm dying to know what she's having. I hate it when people don't find out. I don't care if it's the middle of my reading during my book signing when she delivers. I'll need to be informed at once as to whether I have a niece or a nephew. I don't know how she's waited nine months.
