release day!

Just popping in to let everyone know that the follow up to Loving Jenna is available today! I’m really excited about this story since the heroine, Nadine, is just about to turn 65. Yep! A heroine with a little life behind her.

Romancing Nadine is the tenth book in the Wells Landing Series, but if you’re new to the series, don’t let that stop you. All the books are easily read out of order. They might contain spoilers, but there are no cliffhangers or continuing storylines to closely follow.

Book Birthdays are always strange days for me. I usually have regular work–writing–to do and I get up believing that I’ll go to my ‘office’ and write as usual. But every release day is the same. I find myself distracted by the little things. Posting about the release on Facebook. Making sure that all my website links are working and so forth. Checking to make sure I made the Pinterest inspiration board for the book public where everyone can see it. Just the little things. A million little things. Today is even worse as I just received the copy edits for A New Love for Charlotte (the next book in the series) and I have about two weeks to get them back to my editor. My husband is home for the week, and I’m anxiously awaiting word about two very special projects, so every time I get an email notification I grab my phone as if my life depends on it.

But if you haven’t checked out Romancing Nadine, click the cover below. It’ll take you to my web page dedicated to Romancing Nadine. It’s a fun story about second (and even third) chances at love. The links to the major retailers are at the bottom of the page.

(I was going to post them here for your convenience but wordpress has changed how the blog post are aligned and I can’t figure out how to get them here in a concise way. A million little things.)

And if you haven’t read Loving Jenna, the last time I checked (this morning…a million little things) the ebook was still 99 cents. Click the cover image for Loving Jenna and it’ll take you to my webpage, etc etc.

I hope everyone has a happy day and you find a way to enjoy all the million little things. And if you have a minute, I’d love to hear what you think about Nadine and Amos! <3

Happy reading!




Welcome to my Blog Relay. I’m so glad you’re here today. I thought it would be great fun to share with you one of my favorite scenes from my latest book, Courting Emily.

Now, Emily is the bishop’s daughter, a good girl who does her best to always do the right thing. But when Luke, her life-long love, leaves their home in Wells Landing to drive racecars in the English world, Emily is torn between the world she has always known and the man she always thought she would marry.

blog relay 1 (1)Then Elam steps in, using Luke’s absence to show Emily how much he cares about her. And…well, that’s all I can say about that for now. For those of you who haven’t read the book, I can’t give away all the surprises.

The scene you are about to read occurs after Emily has started going to Elam’s house to help take care of his father. Elam is prideful and hates having to have help for his family, even as deep down, he knows how badly they need it. Add in his secret feelings for Emily, and he’s barely accepting of all these changes in his life.

For now, sit back and enjoy this little glimpse into Courting Emily. There are ten blogs in all, including this one. They are all linked so never fear, as long as you click on the link at  the bottom of each site, you’ll stay  in order. Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog to be entered into the drawing for the purple themed basket. Also, while you’re out and about, I’m sure the bloggers would appreciate it if you took a moment to check out their sites. Who knows? You might find a great new site to join.

Thanks for reading!
