Have you had a chance to see my profile on Goodreads yet? http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/5122241.Tricia_Andersen
When I finished Black Irish, one of the first questions I received was “When will the next novel come out?”
Well – the wait is over!
The beginning will be a little slow. I am once again typing as I write. And just like Black Irish, this new book doesn’t have a title yet. So for right now I’m calling it BI2. I hope you enjoy!

I am very excited to announce that I have been accepted into the Author’s Program at Goodreads!
If you haven’t had a chance to stop by the Goodreads website (www.goodreads.com) it is a social site for book lovers. You can share your favorite books with your friends and they share theirs with you. It’s like a gigantic virtual book club!
So to celebrate this news – and a certain day coming up next Tuesday *coughmybirthdaycough* (which, incidentally, is why my favorite holiday is Halloween), I have a present for my friends. Between now and Tuesday the first 39 readers (since I will turn 39 on Tuesday) who go to the Author’s Profile of my Goodreads page (http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/5122241.Tricia_Andersen) and add me as their friend or send me a message – I will send them a coupon for a free e-reader copy of one of my books from Smashwords! (I can’t send hard copies of the books at the moment – maybe in the near future I can!)
It’s very simple really (I have a bad habit of making things sound more difficult than they are)…
1.) Click on my Authors Page on Goodreads (http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/5122241.Tricia_Andersen) and add me as a friend or send me a message.
2.) Let me know which book you would like and how to get the coupon to you by sending the title of the book and your e-mail address to me. You can send these either by message on Goodreads, comment below this blog post, leave me a message on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/t.l.andersenauthor) or send me a message on my website (http://www.triciaandersen.com/contact-tricia.html).
3.) If you are already my friend on Goodreads let me know and I would still love to send you a coupon!
My hopes are that if you enjoy the book you will go back to Goodreads and rate it. And if you really love the book – tell a friend about it!
Thanks – and Happy Reading!!
Not about writing or publishing…yet…
I tried my hand at belly dancing this week. Brian bought me classes for my birthday. I was excited. Then I watched videos on YouTube – then I was terrified. My body couldn’t do what the girl in the video did!
Come to find out – it wasn’t too bad. Acutally it was a lot of fun!
The class I am in is friendly and fun. And it’s a huge workout. I was feeling it just limping up the stairs after class! The only downside was watching myself in the mirror (yikes!).
It’s great exercise – it’s something I can do at home – and once I’m confident enough to dance for my husband it might have some added benefits. 😉
That is, of course, if I make it all eight weeks…
So almost a month ago I wrote a post deliberating whether I should stop chasing my dream of being an author. I thought long and hard.
And I realized that would be a silly idea. Not many people can say they are able to live there dreams. I may not be living my dream full time but I am living it. And that is all that matters.
I am also proud to announce that I am a member of the Romance Writers of America (RWA).
Admittedly I made this decision quite a while ago. I’ve done something else also – I started the sequel to Black Irish. I was hoping to add it to this post. But with Halloween costumes and football games…it’s not quite there yet. So keep checking back – it should be soon!
