Thanks to Ning Yu for her pencil sketch of Coral. I especially like the fun macrame details in her hair and on her sandals.
Yesterday I completed the character sketches for Fern and Beri from the Meadow Magic story, so they are up on the site, along with a chibi couple portrait that came in an hour ago from Fleet. I had to ask my dd why they had little red marks on their faces–they’re blushing! <g> I love it!
I have started the character sketches for two of Beri’s friends from Emerald Isle, and a witch who’s doing a college internship. So look for those in a few days.
Today, I’m polishing my Seaside Sorcery manuscript in preparation for pitching it to an agent at a writing conference–Romance Writers of America’s 2009 National Conference. This will be the third national conference I’ve attended and this year it’s in Washington, D.C. I’m nervous about my pitch, though I’ve already prepared it and am practicing, but I’m super excited about the opening speaker–Janet Evanovich!
DD and I have read all of her Stephanie Plum books and most of the others. I even own her How I Write book. Have to say, one of her reprints is my favorite–Love Overboard, maybe because the hero owns a two-masted schooner, just like Coral’s family.
