Halfway to the weekend!

It’s already halfway to the weekend and I feel like I’ve accomplished nothing. Time flies when you’re having fun I guess. I’m getting excited about my upcoming release of “Her Wish For Christmas” which is scheduled on Amazon for Thursday night at midnight. Since I’m donating 1/2 of the preorder and 1st week of sales royalties to a domestic violence charity I hope you’ve gone over to Amazon and preorder or maybe you plan on getting it Friday. It’s for a great cause.

As for my week, well it’s been busy as usual. I’m working on Ridge which will be set up for release later in the year. This is the first book in the new Five Oaks Ranch series. It’s based on a ranch and the five siblings are funny, complicated and exciting. I hope you’ll check them out as they come into being. Ridge has been an interesting character to write. He’s a hard man with a heart of stone, but he wasn’t always this hard. Two tours of duty in Iraq have changed him. But the new vet might just change that.

I hope all of you are enjoying your hump day! Don’t forget, the weekend is right around the corner.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Her Wish For Christmas… Pre order up and running

Good Wednesday morning to everyone! It’s a beautiful, chilly morning here in Georgia. I just love the crisp air that Fall offers. It’s so invigorating and refreshes my soul. I begin to get more itchy to write which is scary because some days I could write for 24 hours a day. Yikes, that sounds a little obsessive, but if you’re a writer you know exactly what I’m talking about.

I’m currently working on Her Wish for Christmas, the 3rd book in my Lean on Him Christian Romance Series. This book has torn at my heart and brought me to tears several times. I thought book 2 in the series, Faith Through the Tears was bad on my nerves, well this one has totally cleared out my tear ducts. Actually had a fan recommend sending out a box of tissues with each copy sold.

If you’re wondering why it brings me to tears, well it’s a book about a problem that plagues this nation and it’s something that just affects me so deeply. But it’s the reactions of the characters that totally takes me by surprise. If you’re not a writer, the last statement might seem strange, but sometimes as writer’s we’re surprised by how the characters take over.

Also, for this book, it’s on pre order through Amazon until the release date of November 14th at http://www.amazon.com/Her-Wish-Christmas-Lean-Book-ebook/dp/B00OJI0BN0. I’m donating 50% of my royalties from all the pre order sales and first week after release sales to a domestic violence charity. I want to help out with making a difference. This is such a problem and it breaks my heart that so many feel they have nowhere to turn.

The first couple of days the pre order was out it was in the top 100 on Amazon which is exciting. I’m so touched by the response to this book and can’t wait for it to be up and running. Since the book is almost completely through the editing process I’m crossing my fingers that maybe this book can inspire someone to speak out and get help.

Monday morning writing…

Good morning peeps! Hope all is well with everyone this morning. As for me, it’s the end of tax season and I’m trying to get out the last few returns that are still hanging out on my desk. But first things first, I’m working on my Christmas romance this morning early.

Oh, you haven’t heard about it, well let me fill you in. As some of you know I have a Christian Series “Lean On Him” that I’ve written two books in. Well this is the third installment. It’s called “Her Wish For Christmas”. This book has been working on me for a while, but I wasn’t sure just how to get the story across to my readers. Well, guess what, I’ve figured it out and hope it helps someone out.

The book is about domestic violence and how a couple finds their way through it. I’ve been researching many avenues of domestic violence and the statistics were scary. Did you know that many of us are friends with or work closely with someone that’s a victim of domestic abuse and we don’t even see the signs. In this book I’m only hitting the surface of the problem, but I just hope to add a little hope to someone that feels like they don’t have anyone to turn to. I’ll leave it at that for the moment.

Let’s just say I’ve shed many tears writing this one, even the outline tore my heart out as I imagined the woman’s pain and even the man’s pain as realization hits.

As for this weeks happenings I had an interesting call Friday. I’ve been chosen to be interviewed live on the radio tomorrow for my accounting business. It’s through the WRNW Radio network which is a Women’s Radio Network. They place women business leaders in the limelight for 8 minutes as they interview them and try to inspire other women with their story. I’m really excited and you know I’ll be mentioning my writing. Not sure what radio station it is, but I’ll let you know when I know. The interview is at 4:30 tomorrow afternoon. Wish me luck!

Hope you have a wonderful Monday!

As always, great writing and May God Bless you…
