Time Marches On by Jannine Gallant

Is March any more mad than any other month? Life, in general, tends to be a little crazy. For me, March is about change. The snow is starting to melt, and I wait with eager anticipation for the day I can dump my snowshoes back in the garage for good. That probably won't happen until April, though.

My daughters put up their cross-country skis after the final State Championship race, and I switch from freezing at Nordic races to sweltering at track meets. Luckily, March also provides a nice easing in period of weather adjustment.

My youngest has her final ballet show of the season, and the hectic rehearsal schedule lets up as we close out the month. She also turns 14 in a few days. That means a sleepover birthday party with a bunch of loud, giggling girls. My oldest is 16 and has her learner's permit. Where did the time go? Wasn't it just yesterday they were the little, bitty girls in the ballet shows, so cute and awkward?

I'm feeling a bit nostalgic. Maybe because I'm writing about babies. Another change of pace for me. My suspense trilogy is complete and awaiting the release of the 2nd book at the end of the month. And while I stress over sales and promo, I'm writing a fun, cowboy book that one of my editors requested. The aforementioned baby is a demon in a diaper. I'm amusing myself writing this one, a sequel to Nothing But Trouble to be titled Asking For Trouble.

So, has the onset of a new season brought change to your life? Do tell. Find links to all my books on my website. And have a happy spring!

I loved Nothing But Trouble, but now I can't wait for Asking for Trouble! I love reading and writing about babies.

Ditto what Alison said. I must say the trilogy books aren't too shabby either. And all of it woven around the activities of two busy girls. Can't wait for your newest 'baby'. Pun intended. I find my life is changing too, and in the best of ways.

Thanks, ladies. Asking For Trouble is turning into a comedy. So fun to write. It's not every day a cowboy uses duct tape to strap on a diaper!

Chase as a father? SQUEE!! I just loved him to pieces in NOTHING BUT TROUBLE.

Jannine Gallant said...

Thanks, Jerri.

Sorry, Vonnie, Chase isn't the father. The baby in question is Jackson, Andee's baby who was born in Nothing But Trouble. The inept hero is the baby's uncle. But the whole story takes place in Redemption, and you'll recognize some familiar characters (I'll throw in Chase just for you LOL) from NBT.

I can't wait for you to read it, either, Stacy. I'm up to 10K and cruising right along.
