At this writing, Lucy’s wonderfully amazing By a Thread has reached the Amazon rank of #4 in the Kindle store! What an amazing achievement 17 days after release! I’m so proud of Lucy!

Can we get it to #1?

Lucy announced today that the fabulous Erin Mallon and Sebastian York will be narrating the upcoming audiobook By a Thread! The audio is currently in pre-production, we’ll let you know when it’s available! Such exciting news, stay tuned for more updates!

Against a cardinal. Yup. There is an all out assault against the Score household by a randy cardinal. So far Lucy has tried pictures of animals taped to her windows, an owl cookie jar set outside, and eating lunch outside on the patio.

This is Lucy’s latest update:

Cardinal update: I’m on to Plan W. I keep a spray bottle next to the door and every time I hear him peck his little face into the window, I run out and try to squirt him. So far it just makes him fly to the railing and give me the evil bird eye.

The bane of Lucy’s existence
This did nothing.
Neither did this.

Ever had this issue? Do you have any tips or tricks?

Lucy got a little derailed writing her WIP (think Lucy-fied Stephanie Plum) so she started re-plotting! She told Tammy and I that she had to draw a diagram of who is getting shot at by whom! I can always tell when Lucy is excited about the book she’s writing, and I love getting some behind the scenes peeks at the process! Thankfully, the re-plotting worked and her current work in progress is back on schedule!

Old school plotting in a spiral notebook!
Who needs fancy white boards when you have yellow stick notes?
