The print proof of the book came yesterday so I read it all and faxed in the proof approval last night at two am. Two-hundred copies are in the works right now. I will be looking for a box on my doorstep on July 7th! It takes nine hours to read The One. I have done it so many times already!

summertime happenings

Wow! It makes me hot just looking at that profile picture. It's 96 degrees in Greensboro right now on the second day of summer! Lots of book happenings to report. The print proof is on its way to me and I should receive it tomorrow. I should have my first run of books in about two weeks. The fourth of July was the original target date and it looks like we are right on schedule.

There is a book signing event planned in Greensboro for Thursday, July 29th at The Mix Martini Bar at Quaker Village from 6-9 pm. It's half-price wine night so bring your friends and buy an autographed copy or two (or three) of The One! Stay for dinner. I can promise you that the food is excellent!

If you plan to be at the Outer Banks on August 2, stop by Sam and Omie's Restaurant on the Beach Road in Nags Head from 3-5 pm for a signing event there! They have great food too, and the atmosphere is really cool. A trip to the OBX would never be complete without a visit to Sam and Omie's! A chapter of The One takes place there, and S & O's is mentioned, in case you were wondering...

The sequel to The One is finished as of this week. It is entitled, Second Time's a Charm, and is the story of the Outer Banks characters, Stacie and Tyson. It is an adult romance, so be ready for some heat...and lots of beach scenery, too. Unfortunately I have to sell enough copies of The One before I can start publishing this one, so tell your friends. The website will be up and running shortly so we will be ready for online orders soon.

Stay cool!
