Hanging with the Dude


Hi, everyone. I’m Lace Daltyn and it looks like the party’s going strong! So…since I don’t have the cover for my newest story yet (slated for later this month), I thought I’d show you one of the two brave, handsome guys in my life. This is Dude, my five year old, 17 pound cuddler. It’s been years since I had an animal imprint on me. Our last cat, though wonderful, was attached to hubby at the hip and heart.

Dude, though, picked me. And he’s been as perfect a hero as I could ever ask for. He’s there for me whenever I need a cuddle and he leaves me alone to write. In fact, our office here at home now has three office chairs. Hubby got tired of me always giving mine up to “the Dude” and went out and bought me one. (My other hero, by the way).

Anyhow, Dude now sits and listens to me plot out my stories or rave about some twist I can’t get right. Sometimes, I’ll ask him a question and get a little meow, sometimes he’ll just cock his head, as if to say “Really? Think it through, Mom.”  But always, he’s my biggest fan.

I’ve got a new series starting a little later this month with Evernight Publishing. It’s called Secrets and I’ve angsted over this series for a year and a half and am so excited to be this close to sending it out into cyberspace. Dude is, too, and he wants me to let you know he approves. :)

Here’s a quick blurb about the over-arcing story:

The world is full of secrets.

Drea Fortier, a reclusive philanthropist whose painful past influences her belief that there can be no happily ever after for her, reaches out to help others in the hope she can transform their pain and give them hope for the future. Drea’s own story, along with that of her assistant, Michael Smith, is slowly revealed throughout the Secrets series.

    Got to love a hero like Dude. As I’ve had the privilege of getting a sneak preview of Secrets I’ve got to say I’m excited for you. Each book is fresh and hot. Great summer reads.

    Hi, Lavada, thanks for stopping by. And for the spot of approval on Secrets. I love your idea that these are great summer reads, since they’ll be coming out over the summer. :)
