Girls Write Out
Monday, March 15, 2010

After five months of hard work, I turned in my cowboy story today. Woohooo! Even though I know the editorial process is just beginning, it's always such a relief to turn a story in. A Cowboy's Touch will be the first in a 3-book cowboy series, due out spring, 2011--by Thomas Nelson, of course!

Now it's time to celebrate. Well, and catch up on the laundry, cleaning, and chores I have so neglected. I'm not even kidding.

But back to the celebration . . . Normally I don't do anything other than treat myself to a few Romantic Comedies I've missed out on, but this time, I'm doing something special. Hubby got me a gift certificate for a massage for Christmas, and I am so using that baby. And soon.

What about you? What accomplishments do you celebrate, and how do you treat yourself?

Congratulations Denise!! How fun! I usually collapse when turning in a book, but got a massage when I turned in Dining With Joy. I think I'm going to need another one after the rewrite. :P

A massage sounds wonderful! I catch up on all the shows I've recorded on DVR but never had time to watch.

Me too, Rachel! Rewrites hurt my brain, but it's so worth the effort.

Great idea, Julie! I have a bunch of stuff on DVR I haven't had time to watch too.

Way to go!! Can't wait to read the book.

I treat myself to a pastry and a gourmet coffee or some fancy latte, or just buy dark chocolate.

Congratulations, Denise! A massage sounds wonderful but so does a long, uninterrupted NAP!! :-D

Great news, Denise - enjoy the massage :)

But please tell me, there is a Hunter book somewhere in 2011????!!!

I love a good nap, Ruth! And Leticia, dark chocolate is my fav!

Rel, Driftwood Lane, the last Nantucket book, releases July 6. :-)

At 8:33 AM, Blogger Rel said...

Yes, Driftwood Lane is 2010, A Cowboy's Touch in 2012 so my question was for the year in between - 2011 :) Anything to highly anticipate??

At 8:36 AM, Blogger Colleen Coble said...

yay! It's your best book too, D, and that's saying something!

I usually celebrate turning in a book by cleaning house. LOL

At 8:37 AM, Blogger Denise Hunter said...

Oh, Sorry! That was a typo in my post. A Cowboy's Touch releases Spring of 2011, not 2012!

At 8:38 AM, Blogger Rel said...

Well, that's a relief!! So Colleen, her best book yet, not building any expectations there are you?! Music to my ears, though :)

At 8:39 AM, Blogger Denise Hunter said...

Thanks, C! And yes, there's a lot of cleaning to catch up on. :-(
