Back from Vegas

Man, can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted. I’m a bad, bad e-published author 🙂  Oh well, moving on.

Spent a great weekend in Vegas with my sisters.  Visited the Spa at Mandalay Bay and saw Australia’s Thunder from Down Under.  Can you say “YUMMY”?

Christmas was crazy and January has been very busy.  We did several home renovation projects and it’s tax prep time for us.  With two businesses and my writing – time goes very fast.

I’m working on Roz’s story and a spicy contemporary story targeted for another publisher.  I hope Samhain will buy this next Half Moon Rising story, but no guarantees.  My editor said her slots are closing fast for 2008, so I don’t expect anything out until 2009 – if she buys it.

Sometimes I feel like I’m staring down two roads with my writing career.  The e-published route or the unpredictable road to the NY publishers.  I know there are authors who do both, but right now I can’t devote full time to writing.  Little kids, my husband’s businesses and all.

I know to make good money in the e-publishing world an authors has to do TONS of online promoting…and guess what? Not my strongest suit!  The screen time writing is sometimes all I can take of the technical world in one day.  I swear computers sap my inner spirit and drain my energy.

So rather than blabber on and on, I’m going to go check on my daughter who is home with the flu and write 500 words before supper.

I’m pretty certain the right road will eventually reveal itself to me.  In the mean time – I write.

Hopefully next time I check in I’ll have Roz’s story finished 🙂

This is what December 2007 Romantic Times Book Review had to say about Half Moon Rising:

“[an] entertaining and action-packed addition to the werewolf genre…”

“…characters are likable, the villain is nicely evil and the ending is highly satisfactory.”

They gave the book 4 stars! Yippy! Needless to say–I’m thrilled.

Today is also the day it is available in print.  You can buy it any of these links: Barnes and Noble.com, Amazon.com, and MBAM (Samhain’s store).

FREE SHORT STORY!

October 2, 2007 at 5:36 pm (Half Moon Rising, Margo Lukas Books, romance, Romance Books) (, , , , , )

I’ve added a new 2000 word short story to my page menu– Half Moon Origins: The Witch’s Spellboook  Check it out–the heroine isn’t your usual girl–she’s an elderly witch!  Hey, romance doesn’t end when you’re a senior citzen 🙂

Here’ the intro paragraphs.

Village of Lucia, Spain; 1485 

      The moonlight glowed too dimly through the cottage window.  The thick wax seal remained an undecipherable blur to the old witch, her eyes clouded by years spent toiling in the garden.

       While the stranger loomed over her small table, Isabel DeLagado caressed the wax ridges and let her fingertips prove the truth of the package’s sender.

      Surprise jolted her frail frame.  “The seal of the Alpha King himself?” 

     Carlos, her companion, protectively laid his gnarled hand on her shoulder, mistaking her awe for fear.  Her lover’s struggle to bring his frame to full height filled her with sadness.  Alas, any defense Carlos mustered against the stranger would have been useless.  Utterly useless.   READ THE STORY’S END.
