Sorry for the ten-day absence. I wish I could tell you I was on a beach that was so remote, wild and untamed, there wasn’t any internet access, but you probably guessed the truth: it was just my day job, which has become a full blown nightmare in which Kate does not sleep, nor does she write fiction. Law – what is it good for? Absolutely nothing.

Meanwhile, I’ve been hearing good things from readers about CHARADE, and that has helped boost my spirits, and remind me I’m not really a lawyer, I’m a writer. Thanks to all of you for that! I'm so pleased that you're loving the ATHENA FORCE books.

So what’s new otherwise? Here’s some Movie news, some Doggie news, and a bit of Writing news.

MOVIES: We went to see SUPERBAD, and yes, it was funny. Not as funny as KNOCKED UP, but pretty good. A lot more juvenile-boy humor in SUPERBAD, so I did notice that the men in the audience were howling during certain scenes where I was just rolling my eyes.

Once again, the trailers before the movies promised a great Fall and Winter season. The new Denzel Washington movie looks fantastic. Then there’s Jessica Alba doing romantic comedy – it looks hilarious, and since I like her, I want that one to be a huge hit and the start of a new phase of her career.

Even National Treasure II looks good. The first was good also, and again I give credit to that cast. They’re funny and charismatic, and just the right group to take a fairly preposterous plot and make it work. (My husband has warned me that I’ll need to see this one without him. That’s fair, since I won’t go see that 3:10 to Yuma thing with him, right?)

DOGGIES: poor little Parker, the mini pom-chi, was finally disemballed. He came through it surprisingly well, full of energy that same day. Such a trooper.

WRITING NEWS: Last month I finished the manuscript for the YA novel I began in May, and I have now found the perfect, perfect agent to represent it, so I’m hoping for great things! I’ll keep you informed about this as things progress. I’ve known for a while that I should switch agents, but it’s not an easy thing to do. It feels right though – in fact, it’s amazing. I would have been so much more disheartened this month if I hadn’t had something exciting going on in the background, writing-wise.

Anyway, wish me luck on that!

I’ll blog again soon. Have a great day.

Kate

Man, you and I should go to movies together. :) I didn't know Jessica Alba had a romcom coming out. I *like* her, although I have never yet seen her in something well-enough written to convince me she can act. I must think she *can*, because I rarely enjoy watching people on film who I think have no talent, but I haven't seen anything which actually proves she's got any. :)

YAY for the YA novel! Yay for perfect agents! Good luck with it all! *cheers you on*!

That's exactly how I feel about Jessica Alba. She hasn't had the right vehicle yet, but she's got "something" -- we just need to find out what it is. Plus, the movie world really needs a new romantic comedy heroine.

Thanks for the good wishes on the new book and agent!
