Cover Reveal – STORM!

What an exciting evening for a cover reveal for STORM… As I write this post, a storm has just stopped here. And thank heavens it cooled things off a bit.

But now, on to the post I’ve been so excited to do. Storm is the 3rd book in the In Harm’s Way Series. With Broken coming out in a couple of weeks, it’s time to reveal the cover for book 3. This series has been such a rush of constant excitement and adrenaline pumping suspense that when I finish my daily writing session, I have to sit and take a breather.

Storm will be a fast paced book, so make sure to fasten your seatbelt and hold on. In the coming days I’ll be posting more on the blurb and characters, but for now I’ll just leave you with the entire cover. I know I only gave you a teaser before.

So, what do you think? Intense was my first thought when my cover designer finished with it. I couldn’t have asked for a better example of what this book will be like. And it will be a wild ride. But there is more to come. There will be five books in this series and they get wilder as the series builds.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

P.S.

Grab a copy of book 1 to get your blood pumping…

Exciting news and more to come!

So, before I rush in and tell you everything about Broken, here’s the cover!

This book was more than I expected. I fell into the spell of the story that unfolded under my fingertips. Even when things seemed to fall apart for the characters, I somehow kept it together. This story will pull you in and break your heart one moment, then give you hope the next. But until the end, you won’t know how it will end. Don’t you love a suspenseful read that keeps you on your toes until the last couple of words.

Now, as I work on the outline for the next book in the series, I need to give you a small peek at the cover…

Storm will take your breath away and leave you hanging on every word. I’m so excited about this book. It’s been in my mind for a long time, but now it will be in yours. So, there will be more to come soon on it. As I said, it would just be a peek…

As always, good writing and May God Bless You….

Cover Reveal for SAFE – Coming 2021

Good morning! When I say I’m excited about this new series, it doesn’t do it justice. This is something that’s out of my usual comfort zone. And it has me so engrossed that I’m having a hard time finishing the upcoming releases.

My normal writing is sweet, comforting, sometimes a little suspenseful romance. Well, get ready. Put your seat belt on and grab the ‘Oh crap handle’, because this is going to be totally different. And believe me when I say, it’s going to blow you away.

A little, itty bitty peek at the unfinished blurb:

Writing Christian romance was easy for Hadley. And that’s how she liked things, simple. But one wrong turn and she finds herself in the middle of a horror story. One that will change the way she looks at everything and everyone around her. If she lived through this, it would be a miracle. She had one chance at safety.

Drew left everything to find solace in Wyoming. His world had been filled with espionage, murder, and keeping the country safe as a member of an elite Navy Seal team. But now, all he wanted was peace. That would change in an instant with one phone call. Drew couldn’t go back to that life, but now he has no choice.

To get the job done, Drew has to dip into the darkest part of his soul. The part he’d locked away. The moment Hadley sets eyes on Drew, she isn’t sure which way to run, back toward the imminent danger or toward the man standing in front of her. Both can end her in the blink of an eye.

Hope you liked this little snippet and this cover reveal…

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Preorder, Cover Reveal, & Backlist Sale…

Good Friday morning!

It’s a cold, rainy Friday here in Georgia, but that doesn’t make the excitement about an upcoming release go away. There’s so much going on right now within my writing world and I can’t hold it back. I have two, yes two Christmas romances coming out this year. Here’s the scoop!

This Sunday, the longest book I’ve ever written will be coming out. ‘Christmas at Mistletoe Ranch’ is over 75,000 words and is such a sweet, good feel romance. It’s the first book in a three book series. Books 2 & 3 will be coming out in 2020. It’s on preorder for only $1.99 until the release this Sunday, November 17th. Then it goes up to $4.99, so grab it fast.

As for the cover reveal, well, when the Christmas spirit strikes hard and heavy, you write two Christmas romances. This little gem is a sweet, and I mean sweet romance. The main characters are complete opposites until they come together over gingerbread cookies and horses, but will it be that simple? Without further talk, here’s the cover for ‘The Christmas Wish’ which will be coming out near the end of November and first of December.

Then there’s a couple of sales on my back list titles. Poor things get lost in the glamour of the new, shiny ones, but here’s an incentive to revive them again!

Beyond One Moment is on sale for only .99 and that’s $2 off the regular price. And don’t forget the 2nd book in this series is coming out soon. Oh yeah, I haven’t mentioned that have I?

Safe in the Pirate’s Arms is on sale for .99. Who can ignore a handsome pirate falling for the nice young lady that stows away on his ship?

And last but not least, ‘Lacey’s Choice’ is only .99 for a limited time. Take a trip to the Swiss Alps in this sweet love story.

So, have a great Friday!

As always, good Friday and May God Bless You…

Cover Reveal Time…

It’s those moments in an authors career that are so exciting. One of those moments is when you get to share a cover for a new book. This is one of those moments. I’ve been hiding a little secret and it’s a new series that’s in the works. But, now after a couple of months of planning and preparation, it’s time to let the cat out of the bag, so to speak.

The series is called ‘Tangled Vines Romance’, and each book will be in a different part of the world, but each will be based around a vineyard. The first book is ‘Beyond One Moment’.

I can’t give you too much about it just yet, but that’s coming soon. I can tell you that this book is going somewhere really special, but as to where, well, that’s a secret for now. I know, I know, too many secretive plots, but hey, I’m a writer, we tend to keep things in our heads until just the right moment.

So, without further babbling from me, I give you, ‘Beyond One Moment’.

Beyond One Moment Front cover

Didn’t I tell you it was special? I’m in love with this cover, but the story behind the cover, well, you’ll fall in love with it. It’s one of those stories that gets under your skin and carries you away.

As always, good writing and may God Bless You…

Saturday Cover Reveal!

Wow! The sun is shining this morning. It inspires me to have the sun coming in through the window as I write. I guess you could say it brightens my mind.

Since Breakwater Lane is on its final edit before release day, I’m working on the 2nd book of the Sky Ridge Series. The first book in the series did well and continues to do well in the charts. I’m excited to get book two out as it continues the story.

Here’s the beautiful cover that my cover designer made and I must say, I want to be there it’s so beautiful!

Promises Forgotten front cover

This series is full of sweet romance and drama. It’s a clean read, so if you like a clean romance where you can fall in love with the characters, then this is the one for you… But I suggest that you read Promises Made first. Promises Forgotten will be out soon, but I’ll keep you posted as soon as the release date is set!

Hope all is well with you this weekend and that you’re getting in some writing or reading whichever is your pleasure. As for me, it’s writing and a bit of reading. I have to keep my mind flowing you know.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

When you dream…

It’s Saturday morning, time to make the house look a little less lived in. But my mind is on finishing Breakwater Lane so that my editor gets it first thing Monday morning. I dreamed a dream and it was this series.

Do your books come to you in dreams? Some of my dreams are too frightening to put in a book, then others, well, I’m afraid I’d be locked away in a ward with padded walls. But then the dreams that take on meaning and substance, now those are what writing is all about.

A couple of nights ago, I dreamed about Wishful Harbor. I could see it so plain, just as I see it when I’m writing. I walked down the old cobblestone sidewalk and peered into the windows of the five businesses that will be featured in the series. I saw the characters in their natural world. It was amazing. When I woke the next morning, everything seemed right.

Breakwater Lane has many twists and turns, but the latest twist in the plot road has been baffling me. It’s amazing that when you write what’s in your mind, sometimes you sit back and go, wow, that came from my brain. This twist has been that way for me. It seemed like I might need to start over with this part because I couldn’t get past a certain spot, but then the dream came and bam, there it was.

Maybe it was because I’d been thinking about the problem spot when I got into bed, I don’t know. But there’s one thing for sure, I’m glad I dreamed the problem away. One of the problems with dreams is, sometimes you only remember bits and pieces, but in this case, it’s very clear. I can see the way to the words The End so clearly that my fingers won’t move fast enough on the keyboard.

To say this book has been special, well, that’s an understatement. I’ve finally been able to jump into a new genre of mystery, added in with the sweet romance that flows through the story. So, take a journey to Wishful Harbor and fall in love…

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
