Winter isn't leaving peacefully. It started snowing last night and it's still snowing here. Snow has buried all of my crocuses, pansies, and daffodils that were starting to be pretty and to convince me Spring was really on its way. Looking through some pictures I took during the winter I found this shot of one of the hawks that hung around my back yard most of the winter eating the little birds that visited out bird feeders. It isn't a really good picture, but it's not too bad for being shot through the guestroom window. Does anyone know birds well enough to tell me if it's a Sharp Shank or not? This little guy is my grandson, Calton, who just helped himself to a second cupcake from his big brother's "snake" birthday cake (made of cupcakes). He's still debating whether to eat the cupcake or go after a slice of the more traditional birthday cake, the one with all the candles.

Don't forget that a comment on any blog since the fifteenth of March is an entry in my book give-away contest!

I was excited that my crocus and dafodils were blooming and today they are all chrushed by the snow. There's still hope for the tulips.

I just had a couple of questions.

1- When does the next installment of The Bracelet series come out?

2- I read High Country when it first came out and I found myself disappointed. I am not sure if it is because you are my favorite author and your books single handedly got me through my childhood so I expect a lot or what. I loved the story until the last two pages. It felt like it ended like this,
and then they got together and lived happily ever after. The end.

SO, the question in this is. Is there going to be a sequel to this story? I need a sequel. Please give me a sequel. :)

Jeulye, sorry no sequel for High Country and no more Bracelet either. However the book that would have been the next in the Bracelet series will come out next year (if I ever get it finished) and be a complete stand alone with no references to the Bracelet. My publishers have decided that in light of today's economics series that go to six volumes don't sell well enough to be financially feasable. I wrote High Country and my next book, Shudder, both contemporaries, but not connected to each other because I needed a break from historical research for a while.
