Hello my friends! Everything is pretty hectic here at Casa Peeler . . . mostly because Casa Peeler is being uprooted to Greensburg, PA. I hate the actual act of moving, obviously, but I’m very excited for my new job and my new apartment. It’s HUGE:
I have been trawling furniture stores looking for dining sets, and of course I’m obsessed with two from Needless Markup. I could sell a kidney and maybe buy the chairs! Who needs two kidneys?
Before I sell any of my organs for hoity-toity furniture, however, I will be in Denver, for RomConvention 2010. I’m super excited to bond with my fellow leaguers Mario Acevedo, Jeanne Stein, and Carolyn Crane. I’m also ridiculously excited to meet Nalini Singh, because I’m a huge nerdy fan of hers.
For those of you attending RomCon, here’s my schedule:
2:00 PM 2:50 PM Q&A Author Chat – UF/RE Authors Steamboat
3:00 PM 3:50 PM Memory Lane Convention Center E
9:00 AM 9:50 AM Speed Date an Author Steamboat

In other news, Tracking the Tempest hasÂ been out for over a week now. I think she’s doing pretty well, and it also seems like a lot more people have picked up Tempest Rising because they’ve heard of or seen Tracking. Which Nikki likey. And I trace this success to my readers. I know you guys talk about the books, lend them to friends, review them, et cetera.
So I heart you guys! And I love when you send me your photos of Jane.
Here’s Aimee’s Corgi, Wilson, with Jane. That’s an adorable dog! I love how his paws frame the books perfectly. He’s like a fluffy book stand!
In a dramatic turn of events, Amber Y. suffered a broken alternator something or other (not much of a car person!) on the way to buy Tracking. Here’s Jane with the evidence:
Becky sent a picture of her cat with Jane, and Heather C. sent one of Jane with her pup, Harley:
Dawn sent pics of Tracking from North Dakota. Here are two with the capital building, or, as Dawn called it, “The Penis on the Prairie” framed in the background. I’m still giggling.
Qwill took a picture of Tracking with two of her own sows:
Jessica S. and Zita sent in pics of their books, as did Jessica W. Hers was autographed!
Melissa already has Jane housed in her very crowded bookcase (very nice!) and Lauren B. made it look like Jane is swimming on her sheets.
Finally, here’s Jane on an iPad. She’s so fancy!
Very cool! Thanks, you guys, for all the pictures and all the support. I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know you enjoyed the books.
Viva la Jane! 😉
