Blog Shortcut on One of the Lazy, Hazy Days of Summer

I had several ideas for posts but didn't get any of them written yet. But I have a good excuse. Drumroll, please...a few days ago, I completed my first manuscript in seven years (well, technically, it was a reformatted and edited manuscript lifted, literally, from one of my old books, but it was a tough job) and emailed it to my publisher!

 (The above images aren't mine, 
but having found them on Google Images
I'm not sure who gets the credit.
Those below are Collin's work.)

The book I just delivered is Ms. Maxwell and Son, the first of my nine Silhouette Romance novels. This is the cover Silhouette used. I don't know yet what the Creativia cover will look like! 

So for this week's post, we have the creative talents of my son Collin, who's been following the Stanley Cup finals (since the San Jose Sharks eliminated our St. Louis Blues, we were rooting for the Pittsburgh Penguins--this year's champions). 

He also took a couple of shots at our less than spectacular Presidential candidates (again)....

Have a good weekend, everybody!



  1. Bravo, Norma! Very well done!

    It's really come to this, that cartoonish villains are running for president!

  2. Well Done, Norma !
    thehamish and I are sending you lots of Champagne Bubbles.
    Trump and Billary no choice the are different but cut from the same piece of poo.

    cheers, parsnip and thehamish

  3. Hooray! Wishing you vast success!

  4. Congratulations! Hope it sells like crazy!

  5. I thought I had commented. Good for you!

  6. Thank you--all of you!

    I just received the copy from the publisher for proofing, and they're about to start work on the new cover. Yay!

  7. This is wonderful news, Norma. So happy for you.

    Very, very, cool :-)

  8. Wonderful news. I bet you feel so great!

  9. Ivy & Lorelei: Thanks! The publisher tells me they're trying for an updated version of the original 1988 cover.

  10. Well done Norma, I admire you so much, you really work at your craft and deserve all the success you get!

    1. Thanks, Grace. I'd do a lot better if I were to go for some serious brain decluttering. It's a mess in there!

  11. Don't talk to me about 'head mess' Norma, not sure how much more I can squeeze in.. we should have a 'empty the rubbish bin' button like we do on the computeršŸ˜ƒ
