According to the latest, Hurricane Irene is set to hit New York City Saturday night, and the governor has declared a state of emergency, and the MTA is shutting down mass transit tomorrow. It’s a little strange to think about now, given that it’s sunny outside at the moment (calm before the storm?). But, as a result, it looks like I’m going to be stranded in my apartment all weekend (luckily I’m not in an evacuation zone—I live in a neighborhood with “heights” in the name, which is not just there to be silly). Let’s hope I don’t lose power so that I can use my exile for good!

I’m going to be hanging around The Romance Studio’s End of Summer Bash all weekend with book excerpts and I’ll be giving away a book from the backlist. Lots of other great authors are participating, so be sure to stop by!

And to those of you on the East Coast, I hope you stay safe and dry! I’m gonna make one last run to the store to make sure I’ve got enough food for the weekend.
