I've been doing my taxes this week. That's an Easter Egg hunt in itself!
Other news: I finished a draft of a Presents and I haven't written new words in three days. That's stressful for me. My intention today is to start picking away at my next Montana Born, but first I have to work on:

Baby Swap - Which Is Your Favourite?
I've been really delighted with the response from readers on the baby swap books. If you missed them, you can still get them. The links to order are below, but I'm curious. If you've read them, do you have a preference between the two stories?
When I wrote them, I wrote the Marriage book first. It was more challenging for a few reasons. Octavia was a very suppressed character--something I love to read, but I'm learning is a complete pain to write! Those characters never want to give up anything, even to the author. When I have a hero like that, I might as well fold up the tent and go home.
That book also demanded that I set up the second book, which I hadn't written, so I didn't know what I would need and had to guess-and-by-golly my way through a lot of details.
That paid off with the Consequence book, which had a nice foundation of background details in place so I was able to focus on Sorcha and Cesar. And, even though Cesar is not really in touch with his feelings, he knows exactly how he feels about the amnesia: furious!
I did fall in love with the heroes from both, for very different reasons, but if I will say I enjoyed the process of writing a little more with The Consequence He Must Claim. Do you have a favourite? Why?
If you have yet to discover this duet, or missed one of them, here are the quick links:
The Marriage He Must Keep
The Consequence He Must Claim
Taken By the Raider
And, just in case you haven't grabbed this bad boy yet... (Literally a bad boy short story.)
Now I have to get some new words written or there will be No Chocolate For Me. What's on your To Do list this weekend?
