When In Doubt, Break Out The Vacuum Cleaner

I just finished the new synopsis of Only In My Dreams. If this one doesn't fly, Halle Pumas 5 will be about Sarah and someone who isn't Gabe, because at that point it just hasn't worked out for them. I'll be submitting it to Angie, my editor, today, finishing up My Heart's Desire over the next two to three weeks and sending it out to my betas, and really knuckling down to work on Bear Necessities, the first of the Pennsylvania Shifters (although some work has already been done on that one. Bunny and Julian have already introduced body parts to one another).

Aimee? Thanks for suggesting I use the vacuum cleaner to chase my muse out from under the couch. It worked like a charm.

UPDATE: Only In My Dreams is currently winging it's way to my editor. Wish it luck!

Good luck. I hope it works out. The Halle Pumas have got to be one of my favorite shifter stories. I love them all and still think one big book with all of them in there would be fantastic.
