7 Things: Books for Summer

7 Things: Books for Summer

Okay, so I know that summer is already almost half over. (What? I know, right?) But there are still six more weeks for summer reading--you've got plenty of time! (Six of the seven are indie authors or were published by small presses, and several are by Canadian authors. Can you guess which ones?)

So This is Love

Ready for Jason's staff Christmas Party, December 6, 2014

It's hard to believe that Jason and I have been together for over fifteen years, now. Not because I still feel like that girl that fell in love with him--I am less rash, more confident, and more patient, in no small part thanks to my husband--but because I am still "in love" with him, and love him more every day. And I am so thankful that my Prince Charming loves me back. We are definitely a couple of the lucky ones.

Jason, you are amazing. Thank you for making my life wonderful.

New book cover!

I am so excited! I got the cover art for "The Friday Night Date Dress" back last Thursday. Thank you to the amazing Fiona at Fiona Jayde Media for taking my few ideas and making them look amazing.

The book is with my editor right now. It's her first reading, so I am praying that any required revisions will not be a complete overhaul, and maybe I can get it published in time for Christmas.

Since the story itself wraps up in mid-December, that would be good timing, don't you agree?

What do you think of the cover?

From Prosidy to Prose

Well, I figured I'd make the official announcement: I will soon be launching my career as an author.

I am currently working on my second novella, which I am thinking will be released as a package with the first one I wrote in December to make a sweet little couple of romance stories (pun intended).

The first story is about Melinda, a twenty-something woman recovering from the tragic loss of her family and fiancee, and Peter, an engineer-cum-UPS driver trying to launch a photography career. Every week, Melinda creates a couture masterpiece of a dress which she then hides in a box forever after wearing only once. Is Melinda finally ready to move on? Can Peter draw her from her protective shell? Find out when you read "The Friday Night Date Dress."

It may be a month or two before the second half of the pair is completed, so I am trying to decide whether to just release this one now or not. I will keep you posted.

Have a great weekend, peeps!
