Dear Heartwarming Readers,
I can't wait for January 1, 2016.
New Years is a favorite holiday for me and I always make a frivolous resolution. In the past four years my resolutions have been:
1. Play the lottery every week
2. Make a new cake recipe every week (my kids loved the year of cake)
3. Go barefoot more often
4. Have more fun
I'm starting out 2016 by having lots of fun: my first Heartwarming novel Under the Boardwalk releases on New Year's Day! This novel takes place at a summer resort and amusement park. I always think falling in love is fun, and with sand and thrill rides in the background, you can't go wrong!
Just yesterday, I received this cover art from my wonderful editor Dana with permission to share:
Thank you to the talented and professional cover artists and editorial staff at Harlequin! They captured the mood of summer love with the images and colors of this cover, and I couldn't be happier with it.
In addition to revealing this cover, my editor called yesterday with news I've been waiting (patiently...I promise) to hear. Harlequin Heartwarming has contracted the next two books in the Starlight Point Stories! While Under the Boardwalk tells the story of Jack Hamilton as he takes over his family's amusement park Starlight Point, the next two books are about his sisters June and Evie. I can't wait to share their stories with you.
Although I've made silly New Year's resolutions in the past, I'm going to make a serious one this year: keep writing novels in which falling in love is fun!
Is it too early to think about New Year's resolutions? Do you make resolutions and keep them? Make them and break them? Take it seriously? Have fun with it? I'd love to hear your take on New Year's resolutions if you'd leave a comment. I'll be busy getting a head start on my 2016 resolution by writing a love story, the best kind of story.
