So, all the cool kids are off at Dragon (No Asterisk) Con or Worldcon. Or they’re having wonderful end-of-summer weekend celebrations with friends or family. Or they’re preparing for the Jewish High Holy Days, getting ready to welcome the new year with symbols of sweetness (apples and honey for the win!)
And some of us are left at home, staring at our computer screens.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t have our own fun. We can have a kaffeeklatsche, just like at the big cons.
Pull up a seat. Lift a cup/mug/glass of your favorite beverage. Help yourself to some of the chocolate scattered across the table (or, if you’d prefer, some of the late peaches or early apples).
I’ll kick off our very open-ended discussion. What are you writing these days?
Me, I’m working on a series of category romances, all built around a (made-up) major league baseball team. The first, PERFECT PITCH concerns a left-handed pitcher who is trying hard to live up to the ideals set by his Hall of Fame father, even when he’d much rather pursue romance with a beauty pageant queen who is trying to promote a program that teaches music theory to kids in public schools. The book is fun, fluffy, totally hawt, and — perhaps most important to my current good mood — short (50,000 words, or thereabouts.)
How about you?
