This & That

Hey folks,

I just thought I’d give you an update on what’s happening this summer. First off, I signed with a German literary agency that requested the German rights for PLAY WITH ME. So with any luck, TEAMWECHSEL will be traditionally published sometime in the future.

Next big day on my calendar is the release date of the German edition of RYAN HUNTER. June 30th … or maybe sooner, who knows?😉 I’ll keep you updated on that one on my facebook site.

In less than a month, my son has to undergo a severe surgery, which needs to be planned, and I’ll also stay at the hospital with him for the entire time. This means I’ll take a break from writing for a while. But once I get back to my desk, I’m going to finish GABRIEL and TONY. Both books should come out in winter, if my plans work out.

Okay, and finally the really, REALLY big news. I’m going to Las Vegas in August!!

The review magazine, InD’Tale, is giving away the RONE Award, and PLAY WITH ME is a finalist. I don’t know if I’m going to win, probably not, 2012_RONE_Finalist(Novella or Short Story) - 300(1)but I’m going to be there Wednesday through Saturday and am looking forward to meeting TJ Mackay, the editor-in-cheef of InD’Tale. TJ reviewed and loved my book and she personally invited me to hang out with her and a few other members of InD’Tale; among them Jimmy Thomas, a romance cover model.😉 There’ll be a costume ball, too, can you imagine? I’ll be the sparkling Cinderella in a candy pink ball dress, should you be on the lookout for me.

The entire Romance Novel Convention takes place in the Golden Nugget Hotel in Las Vegas from August 7th through August 11th.

It would be lovely to meet some of you there, too. I’m sure we all are going to have a blast! As for me, I can’t wait! I mean, OMG, look at that pool!! There’s a water slide running though a shark tank!! A. SHARK. TANK. Dammit!

Stay cool this summer!

Cheers and smiles!!

  1. How exciting! I hope you win; the book was truly amazing, and I hope you have much success with the literary agency that will now represent you. Have a fab summer!

    1. Thanks Aneta. It ist totally exciting. I’m nervous like hell, because I’m going to fly to the other side of the world all alone, but I’m sure it’ll be worth it. I’m a big gal after all. I’ll just get my shit together and face it with a roar!🙂

  2. I hope your son’s surgery went well! I just read Play with me & Ryan Hunter (my reviews will be up tomorrow) and absolutely fell in love with them!!! I’ll be stalking you waiting for more🙂

    1. I don’t mind being stalked by readers. That’s the whole point of giving people a good story to reads😉

      My son’s surgery is in 2 weeks. The closer it gets, the more I get nervous…I want to hug him all the time now.

  3. Hope your son’s surgery goes well! I read Play With Me about 5 times already and then i found out that u had a Ryan Hunter book out! I was so excited. I just finished reading it and plan on reading it about 4 more times.I love Liza Matthews and Ryan Hunter and hope that another book with be written about them! Love your books(:

      1. I know .. its just that i love ur books and really hope you come out with more of the Grover Beach Series ! (:

      2. I hope you write a story for Ryan’s friend Justin. You mentioned that it was a possibility. There are several characters that could have a spin off.

      3. I won’t write it right away, but he’s definitely on the list for a story. After Tony’s book, I want to finish some other projects, too, and then get back to Grover Beach when it feels right.🙂

  4. Hi Piper,
    I just wanted to say I’m glad that your sons surgery went well. I hope that he is doing okay. Good luck with the RN Convention!

    1. Thanks, C.K. It was a really nerve wrenching time. All the waiting during the surgery, the thoughts running wild… But now we’re back home, my son feels all right, apart from a little headache still, and we’re happy it’s all over. Time will tell if the surgery was worth it and the seizures really stop. I do hope so with all my heart!🙂
