I remember the first book I sold, how I felt when I saw the cover for the first time, and then a few months later when I held it in my hands.
There's nothing like that very first sale.
But, the great thing about writing books is… it's exciting every time you see one come to fruition.
There's a bittersweet feel to The Missing Twin. It's the final Scorpion Ridge novel. I've enjoyed writing each and every one of them and now am looking forward to coming up with my next endeaver.
The secret between them
Angela Taylor knew her sister was in trouble. For anyone but a twin, her instincts would seem crazy, and her actions crazier. Picking up and moving herself and her daughter, Celia, to Scorpion Ridge and asking questions put them all at risk. Even more risky was trusting Jake Farraday, the handsome ex-cop turned forest ranger. Years in witness protection had taught Angela to trust no one. Yet with Abigail missing, Jake was her only hope, and she found herself wanting to share more of her past with him. And more of her future. But did Jake have his own motives for helping Angela?
One of the absolutely best things about being an Heartwarming author is never being alone. It's a sisterhood. I've been a published author since 1999 (Yes, I was 12) and I'm amazed by the comaraderie in this group. I feel like I've got ice skates on and I'm being whipped around the ice by a strand of friends who lead, follow, and laugh.
Speaking of what we do together… The January Heartwarming authors have yet another promotion. Read on.
In Thursday’s post, Amie Denman mentioned another giveaway we have planned to celebrate our January releases being available as mass-market paperbacks through Amazon. In just a few days, this month's Heartwarming authors will launch our own #AmazonGiveaway where we'll each award five copies of our books. Your chances of winning will be 1:500. Those are much better odds than winning the Powerball! Watch for the announcement of the start of the giveaway!
And just to add a bit of humor. Here's one of my favorite photos finds thanks to Facebook.
And, the cat, well Tyre is mine and he says that I should notice that nowhere on the blanket does it offer space to puppies.
So, Tyre says we can just keep crating the new puppy forever.
Hmmm, I'm thinking a new blanket will be in order. I wonder where we'll put the German Shepherd/Husky mix that is now terrorizing Tyre's peace and quiet.
