Countdown, Zumba, and Other

It's definitely time to countdown!! In exactly one week from today, Secrets of Jenkins Bridge will be released! And I'm completely ecstatic. My sweet baby will go out into the book world for all to see. So I'm a little scared, too. But, I keep in mind that I can't please everyone. And that's okay. I believe in this one wholeheartedly. I'm setting up a blog tour (well actually resuming the one I had begun back in February) and as soon as all dates are finalized, I will post the schedule up on my side bar.

I kept hearing about this wonderful thing called Zumba. You know, the dancing exercise videos. The class that seems to have overtaken nearly every major gym. It looks fun, but there is NO way I will get up there and do this in a gym. I love to dance. And I've put on some weight (UGH), so I decided to go ahead and give this a try in my own home. (This way I can become proficient before doing it in public and making a horse's butt of myself). I just began it today and I have to say it is the most invigorating fun I've had in a long time. And mind you, all I'm doing is learning the dance steps. I'll probably be sore tomorrow, but that won't stop me from jumping in front of that TV and doing it all over again. I figure within one month, I should have all the dance steps down, and with that 5-10 lbs lighter (I don't dare wish for more than that). Then, I can move on to the next dvd in the series.

Other news? Not really much. I'm nearly finished with my rough draft of Boneknapper (that pesky end that seems to elude me). I'm bouncing some ideas for future books (As if my list of ideas isn't long enough). Fleshing out a couple of new books. My son's last week of school this week, so it's time to find him some things to occupy him besides the computer.

But, that's about it. How about you? Got plans for this summer?
