Inlet Circle – Inside the Story

Coming February 14th

Good Friday morning! I hope all of you are happy and well. We are fighting the flu and winter crude here at the Hurt house.

So, the third book in the Wishful Harbor series will be coming out on Valentine’s Day! This series has been so much fun to write. I just love the New England coast and all the little seaside towns. A trip when I was younger inspired the town of Wishful Harbor. I’ll never forget it.

But, let me introduce you to Inlet Circle. The two main characters are Lacey and Chip. Lacey owns the local coffee shop, while Chip owns the Inn just outside of town. She’s a quiet woman with a past that has broken her and made her not trust just anybody. Then you have Chip, a new guy in the small town with a lot of baggage hanging onto him.

It’s a story filled with mysterious pasts that come back to haunt and a budding romance that will have you sighing with love.

So, be watching for the release of this one. It’ll warm your heart.

As always, great writing and May God Bless You…

The book that started it all…

Good Thursday morning!

My writing life started when I was a young teenager and I picked up the romance novel that made my fingers itch to put words on paper. And that novel was Remembrance by Danielle Steel. After reading it, I began to devour her books, one by one. This also started my obsession with reading romance and writing it. I still have my collection of her books and the Harlequin books that I’ve gotten over the years. 

It’s amazing what an impact that a book can have on you. I’m so glad that I picked up that book in the second hand store. I just wish I’d thought about publishing my work a long time ago, but maybe it wasn’t time yet. 

So, what inspired you to start writing? If you’d like to tell your story on my blog, just let me know.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

P.S. : If you’ve never read one of Danielle Steel’s books, then I suggest you start with this one.

Focus

Good morning! I do hope all of you had a great 3 day weekend. As for me, we did. I was able to get some cabinets cleaned out, tossed some old stuff and organized. Ummmm, that’s not what I had planned, yeah, well…

As writers, we often lose focus of what we need to do. For instance, this morning I had planned on getting in my word count, then working on promotions and social media. But, as it is the Monday for the week, my brain wouldn’t function. I lost focus.

So, my plan is this, to regain my focus. I need to finish my manuscripts that are hanging there, waiting for the words ‘The End’, and move forward with the planned releases coming up. But, how do I do that?

For me, the problem is social media addiction. Yes, I said it, addiction. The first thing I do when I grab my coffee is scan through, planning to just make a quick glimpse. Yeah, right! I end up reading posts, looking at more posts, commenting, etc. Then an hour later, I’m sitting here trying to power through my word count before I head to the office.

Today I plan to focus on the task at hand, well after my morning loss of focus. So, how many of you lose focus on priorities?

As always, good writing and May God bless you…

P.S. Don’t forget to focus!!!

Saturday laziness…More Coffee!

It’s Saturday and time to take a moment to just sip my coffee, check my stats and just be… Of course I have plenty to do, but it might take another cup of coffee to get me up and going. So what’s up with you this beautiful morning?

So, as I amble through my social media, it reminds me that I need to set up my automatic ads for the week, write a couple thousand words today, clean house and do laundry. But, well… Yep, I think another cup of coffee is waiting for me. Then maybe I’ll get started on my list.

So, great writing and May God Bless You…

Be lazy for a moment and just be… It’s good for the soul. Don’t forget the coffee or tea, whichever is your go to!  HAPPY SATURDAY!

Women of Magnolia Hill is coming to a close…

Good morning! It’s Wednesday and we’re halfway there.

As I work on the final book of the Women of Magnolia Hill Saga, I feel drained. Why is it so hard to end a series?  Characters and places that fill our head also fill our heart. But saying goodbye, well, that isn’t easy.

This series began a long time ago with the first book, Victoria. It was filled with a spirit that engulfed me. As the series progressed, so did the years and the times. It went from Emma Rose to Lily and now in the final chapter, Georgia. But, what will be the fate of the loved Magnolia Hill? Will it still stand or will it fall from time?

Here’s a short, short snippet from Georgia:

Georgia whirled around, anger filling her eyes. “I’m not leaving my home. He wants a fight, well he’s got one. There’s one thing you don’t know about the women of Magnolia Hill. We don’t give up at any cost.”

Coming Soon Ad1

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
