Change seems to be my middle name! And speaking of names, as some know, I've taken on the pen name of Abagail Eldan. I'm leaving the In the Shadow of the Cedar books on Amazon under Sheila Hollinghead.

My western romance will be published under Abagail Eldan. As many know, I have a book in the Lockets & Lace series. If you have not seen it yet, here you go--

This beautiful cover was designed by Carpe Librum

The book is scheduled for publication on the 25th of this month. It's up for pre-order on Amazon for 99 cents. The price goes to $2.99 after publication. Click here to pre-order: Melly, Unyielding.

Lockets and Lace have a couple of events planned at Facebook. Meet five of the authors next Thursday at the Authors Event. And then we will have a fun game. Stay tuned for that!

Thanks for your support!

I'm attempting to remain on schedule while dealing with selling our house and building a new one PLUS not one but two secret projects. 
Yes, shhh... coming soon, I will share details of two projects involving other historical western romance authors! Exciting times to be working with such talented authors!

(By the way, that is my new logo that you may have noticed on my Facebook page or Twitter.)

In November, Thunder Snow will be released free so be watching for that. I have updated and re-edited Clothed in Thunder and hope you'll check it out. 

And if you wonder if that's enough to tire me out, yes, yes it is. However, I MUST stay on schedule. I've committed to having 15,000 words written by Tuesday of this week. Only 9,000 to go! I have done it before and can do it again. I've sketched out several chapters today and should be able to get the words written fairly quickly. 

Life is settling down, I do believe. A stray dog showed up at our door and desperately needs befriending. And we've taken in a rescue horse. I don't have a picture of the dog but do of the horse. Here are the BEFORE and AFTER pictures:

Her name is Rosie and she's a sweetie! 

In an attempt to become more organized, my new goals are to write 3,000 words per day Monday through Friday and take Saturday and Sunday off. Well, not completely off. I'll schedule my newsletters and blog posts and other such activities on the weekend. Sounds like a plan! Have a wonderful week!
