Novel Release!

Take one sassy, capricious City Girl. Add one broody, hard-working Country Boy. Throw in the world's most disgusting RV, a rag-tag group of rescue animals, a reality TV Star, and a rattlesnake. What do you get?

A recipe for romance! 

You've waited long enough for the second installment in the Harmony Ridge Romance Series. I couldn't be more thrilled to announce it's publication. Get it for just $0.99 on Kindle or read it free on Kindle Unlimited.

Leaving Twitter & Writing Updates

 I just wanted to let you all know that I deleted my Twitter account tonight. That makes this blog my only form of social media. 

Drafting of my third Harmony Ridge Romance is underway. My plan for the series is to subtly dip in and out of different contemporary romance subgenres and book three is going to be a thriller romance! It is making for a fun change of pace.

Stay tuned for a release date for Book Two.

Moving Forward

After my amazing book launch for A Blueprint for Hope, I've made some decisions about how I would like to move forward in my writing.

Firstly, I will minimize my time spent on Twitter. What was at one time a wonderful app for connecting writers and readers has devolved into a numbers game and a pissing contest. I don't believe that readers find novels through Twitter. 

As to the Writing Community, you can imagine how dismayed I felt when I shared the happy news of my book launch, only to find a thread of other writers ripping me apart. Apparently, they decided to take the screenshots that I shared as an invitation to criticize a book they had never read and a marketing strategy I never shared. My goal in posting the screenshots was to thank my audience and to encourage other indie authors on their publishing journeys. I never wanted to make anyone feel badly about their own novels. I decided not to engage with the thread, but reading the nasty comments has soured me to the platform for now. I am not going to delete my account at this time. However, I will be removing the app from my phone. I will use Twitter only to share writing and publishing updates in the future.

My time is limited and I have decided to devote more of it to this blog and to writing my new novels. 

Secondly, I have withdrawn my last submission to Harlequin Limited Addition. 
As you can see, my novel was submitted almost eight months ago. I have had no response. I wrote His Lucky Catch to follow A Blueprint for Hope in the Harmony Ridge Romance Series with just a few edits. So, I will be working on polishing this manuscript and scheduling a release date for it in the near future. At this time, I believe that self-publishing is the best route for me and I am excited for my future.

I think good things are coming and I will do my best to keep you all updated. As always, thank you for your years of support!

What an Incredible Book Launch!

Wow!

I am stunned. 

To everyone who has downloaded A Blueprint for Hope this week, thank you so much! I hope you love the novel.

They say a picture is worth a thousands words, so I'm going to leave a few screenshots here to show you what this launch looked like from my dashboards and why I've been left almost speechless.

*Above: 4,579 copies downloaded!
