Now that’s not a comment authors often hear from their editors! However, having just returned from the first vacation I’ve had in years, I’m all about break taking.
Visiting the land of Shakespeare, Austen and Wordsworth has left me feeling inspired. It’s been invigorating and not a little fun to see things you haven’t seen before, or to see the same things but from another perspective.
The great part about inspiration is you don’t have to cross an ocean for a new view. You could rearrange your office. Or move your chair to another spot in the backyard. Even park your car where you normally wouldn’t. The smallest and simplest gestures compel me to think and to be hopeful. So here’s to inspiration and being inspired!
What inspires you?
Something else inspiring are the four Heartwarming titles that have been released this month. Each is unique. Pamela Tracy’s Small-Town Secrets features an intriguing hundred-year-old mystery as part of the storyline. Kathy Damp is a debut Harlequin author with the sharply-told Waiting for Sparks. A compelling brand-new miniseries begins in Winner Takes All by Cheryl Harper. And Patricia Forsythe’s romance features a fan-favorite iconic hero—the cowboy—in Her Lone Cowboy.
