We all have someone important in our life, so whether you’re a mom, step-mother, doggy-mom, daughter, sister, aunt, friend or whatever, I wish you a day filled with love and joy!
To celebrate Mother’s Day, let’s have a contest!
We all create our own story…every moment of every day. Drop me a note right here and share a brief moment of your own personal story (about whatever you wish to share today), and I’ll enter you into a draw for a signed copy of one of my paperbacks (your choice) and some chocolates. 🙂 Deadline is midnight MST on May 19, 2018.
Update: And the winner is…Diana T! Congratulations, Diana!
(Your prize will be in the mail shortly.)
First off, I’d like to wish everyone a Happy Easter. I hope you’re out there spending time with your family and/or eating some wonderfully delicious chocolate.
Now on to the latest news…
There’s a new book out and it’s rocking the bestseller lists in so many genres, it’s created a new Guinness World Record. Have you heard about it yet? They’re already talking movie rights, TV rights, franchise rights and a whole bunch of other rights…and the book hasn’t even been released yet.
It’s about an undercover journalist/superheroine who infiltrates a nudist colony on British Columbia’s famous Vancouver Island where she investigates an unsolved murder and discovers the secret behind her parents’ romance, the truth of her biological parents, the secret of the sexy stranger who wants to make babies with her who claims he’s an alien from a distant galaxy, and if that’s not enough great stuff, finally meets the daughter she gave up for adoption years ago.
My characters…it’s like they’re hidden in the shadows, too shy to make an appearance all at once. Or perhaps they just enjoy teasing me (driving me crazy would be more like it!).
From the foggy mists of my imagination, my characters appear bit by bit. The longer we spend together, the more pieces of their personality they’re willing to reveal. If I take a wrong turn and attempt to shape them into something they’re not, they plop themselves down in the middle of the floor like a pouty two-year-old throwing a hissy fit, and refuse to cooperate until they get their own way.
They have a life of their own, beyond what I can see,
Take Abby Watts, the heroine from my upcoming release ONCE A HEARTBREAKER.
Abby is the sister of the heroine from A Time to be Tender, book three of the Rocky Mountain series. Restless. Independent. Kind of slutty. Full of guilt. She blames herself for what happened to Jane. If she’d met her sister like she was supposed to, Jane would have never landed in a predicament that nearly ended her life and left her with a lifetime of nightmares.
Abby loves her sister. And now guilt plagues her constantly for the lie she told to cover up her whereabouts on the fateful night that changed Jane forever.
It’s a lie she hasn’t quite revealed to me yet, a secret she’s determined to keep hidden. It’s the reason she won’t let herself fall in love with a good man like Zach Malone. A secret affair with the hunky rancher is one thing. But marriage and commitment…no way…
Did you like this inside scoop? What do you think Abby’s secret could be? Please tell me because I’m dying of curiosity…
I recently took some time off from writing the upcoming books in the Rocky Mountain Series to clean up my website. If you don’t already know this about me, then I have to tell you how much I love building websites. It’s like play, so taking a few days off from writing to work on the site is no hardship.
Anyway, a couple of years ago, I created pages for each individual book with hopes of giving you all an insight into the development and writing of each story. However, I didn’t complete the pages and they’ve been sitting there. I’ve never really talked about them because they’ve been half done and messy. But now, finally…
Ta da! Just go to my books page, click on any cover, and you’ll get the inside scoop on that particular story. Character info, blog posts I wrote giving the inside scoop on the stories, and more. Or click on the images on this blog post and get taken directly to the first book in the series (where you can then access the other books in the series).
I’ll be adding more tidbits and extras to these pages, so check back occasionally to see what’s new.
Do you like getting the inside scoop on your favorite stories? If so, what kind of things are you interested in seeing more of?
