The Heat is On!

Well, I'm still waiting for my galleys (proofs) of Desert Magick: Superstitions. I've been told by my publisher that I'll receive them any day now. I'm excited, I can tell you, really excited about this new series, and have been approached by so many people wanting to know when they can buy a copy. So not only is the heat on here in the valley--we're topping at 107 this week--but the pressure's on to get the book out to all you wonderful readers. So please check here or my website www.danadaviswriting.com for progress.

Again, I would like to thank all of you who sent me wonderful emails concerning my family. They're going to be fine. My aunt in Galveston still hasn't been home to check on her place but I looked her up on the city's aerial web views and the house is still there. Whether it's still livable or not well....

While you're waiting for my new paranormal fantasy book, please pop on over to www.podiobooks.com/title/quest-for-freedom and check out that sci-fi audio book. Yes, it's for teens but adults enjoy it too. And there are about 30 chapters out of 46 that are live.

Happy reading!

Houston/Galveston family okay!

Well, I'm not posting about writing today. I would like to thank everyone who sent their good thoughts out for my family living in the Galveston/Houston area as Ike roared through. I spoke with my mom this morning and everyone is okay, but those who had to evacuate can't get home and we have no idea what kind of damage they will find. My aunt, who lives on Galveston Island, probably won't be home for a while. My brother and his family have some damage to their home but they got lucky that the neighbor's tree missed the house and cars when it toppled. My brother really doesn't need this added stress, since he lost his son in April, so your continued good thoughts are appreciated.

I'll be back on my blog later in the week when I have more information.

My best to all those who were in Ike's path.

Audio books, dust storms, and cable outages, oh my!

Sheesh, this is turning out to be one active week. For all those following my Quest for Freedom teen audio book, I just submitted chapter 23. That's the half-way mark! Woohoo! It should be posted in a day or so at www.podiobooks.com/title/quest-for-freedom, so pop on over there and sign up for your downloads. Three chapters went live last week and I was scrambling to get as much up as possible before tomorrow. My cable company is updating my neighborhood so I will get knocked off Tues/Wed and may not get the chance to post anything. I should be up and running again by Thursday/Friday. Thanks for your patience.

While we're getting nothing more than a dust storm around here, I have family in the Houston/Galveston area watching out for hurricane Ike. I know they would appreciate your good thoughts that Ike winds down before it hits.

Happy reading!

The Big Monsoon!

OMG, just when I thought monsoon season was winding down, we get the monster storm. The lightening storm that accompanied it was very much like being inside a strobe light. It just didn't quit. For about three hours! Wind, rain, hail and lightening. The biggest monsoon I've ever experienced. Some areas got hurricane force gusts that ripped stuff up and tossed it around. Wild weather all around. It may sound selfish, but I'm so glad Gustav missed the Texas coast as I have family there. My best goes out to all those who weren't so lucky.

The weather's not the only thing that's wild around here. I'm wild with anticipation about my Desert Magick series. So many people have been asking when they can purchase the first book. Another couple of months. I'm as anxious as anyone.

Happy reading!
