Poor Little Blog

Oh dear.

I have sadly neglected this poor little blog of late! Guilt abounds.

But I have been relatively busy these last few months. For starters, I was on a deadline. Not just any deadline . . . we are talking the Mother Of All Deadlines.

Two months to write an 120,000 word novel.


By the grace of God, I succeeded, my editors liked the draft, and we are moving along at a fair clip. Soon I will post the cover for VEILED ROSE which will come out in summer of 2011. So exciting!

And, because life can always get more exciting . . . .

I am now married to the kindest, the most wonderful, the dashing, and clever, and charming, and brilliant Rohan de Silva, fencer extraordinaire!

And we are ridiculously happy!

Okay, back to the manuscript . . . .

Congratulations on your marriage! With God's grace, I hope all continues to go well. I'm looking forward to the new book.

First off, let me congratulate you on your marriage. I hope you and Rohan spends many great years together.

Secondly, I would like to tell you that I am looking forward to your new book. I must tell you, after I stayed up literally all night due to the fact I could not put "Heartless" down, I knew I had found an excellent author.

God bless.

Hello Anne, I'm friends with your mom on xanga and thought I'd stop by. You're wedding pictures are beautiful!

God Bless

Thank you, everyone, for these lovely comments! Sorry I never check this site. I'm a terrible blogger! But these encouraging words and well-wishes are greatly appreciated. :) My Rohan and I are very happy, and he is such a wonderful encouragment to my work, being a great brain-storm partner and sympathetic ear. I'm expecting my stories will improve tremendously now that he's in my life.
Blessings to you all, and I hope you will enjoy VEILED ROSE, coming July 2011.

Congrats on getting married, you look stunning.

I've tried to get a hold of you through email, but you don't have a contact me info thing on your blog or on your profile page on Bethany House site.

Right now I'm reading Heartless and I'm completely enchanted by it. Since I haven't heard to much about the novel I would love to do an interview. Please contact me if you would like to do one

Hello! Just wanted to let you know, I finished "Heartless" last night and I really enjoyed it. I did a write-up in my Christian "sci-fi/fantasy" blog here: http://faithfictionquest.blogspot.com/2011/03/heartless.html

By the way, I noticed your earlier post about "Come Away, oh human child." Did you ever happen to hear Loreena McKennit's beautiful rendition of this poem to music? It's called "Stolen Child" on her very first album, "Elemental"

I'm very excited about your next novel!

Shera: Just sent you an email!

Faith: Thank you for the encouraging note. I'm so glad you enjoyed "Heartless"! I enjoyed reading your review. :) And thanks for letting me know about the Loreena McKennit song . . . I've listened to some of her work, but hadn't yet encountered that one! I will go look it up asap . . . .
