A Note From My Projects (Tara Taylor Quinn)

Here I am again, sitting down just to chat, and have three projects pushing at my back, insisting that I use this time to share them with you. They run my life, you know. These projects. They are my life. Not just because they take up such a huge chunk of it, but because they are the way in which I process and express everything that goes on in my world. In the worlds I observe. And one thing I've very clearly learned...I don't argue with them. They'll just make my life miserable until I give them their voice. They sound kind of spoiled. They aren't. I promise. They're just...intense. Important. They have things to contribute to the world. And so...here they are...

First up - This month saw the debut of my new Harlequin Heartwarming series, Family Secrets. Preliminary reviews have been really exciting. I love this series. It has so much going on...so many avenues to explore. We've got a reality cooking show. Contestants competing with secret family recipes. We've got some actual cooking tips. And we've got family secrets that are haunting those keeping them. If you haven't already checked out For Love or Money, Book One, it's here:


Next up is an exciting pre-order opportunity for our upcoming Christmas Anthology! 15 novellas written by current Heartwarming authors all set in the same town - a wonderful, loving town - Christmas Town, Maine. I've loved my time spent in Christmas Town! The people here have problems, face challenges, but that Spirit that embodies Christmas lives here and it's the strongest force in the world. I personally believe in the Spirit of Christmas with all of my heart. I believe in this power. I turn to it. I know it really is the strongest power on earth. And I am thrilled to be a part of this very special project! Right now you can pre-order it for just $.99!!


And third (not in importance, I'm doing these strictly in order of release!) is another very very special anthology - A Heartwarming Thanksgiving!! We're giving you two holiday anthologies this year!! A Heartwarming Thanksgiving is also a set of novellas, all written by Heartwarming authors - 13 of them! The stories are set in different places, with all kinds of plots, and each one of them revolves around Thanksgiving!! It is also available for pre-order right here:


So...they've said I did well. I am now allowed to go fold a load of laundry! Happy Thursday, everyone!

  1. Yes, well done Tara. I think an outing or lunch would be more fun than folding laundry. chuckle.

  2. Tara, what a fun mix for your projects! Cooking, secrets, Thanksgiving, Christmas, even a little mystery thrown in there. Thank you for sharing. Your energy, focus, and work ethic are an inspiration.

  3. Congratulations, Tara, on the books that sound wonderful, and all the hard work, energy, and fortitude they represent. How appropriate that you're talking Christmas because, you know, (am ducking and protecting my head) it's just four months from today!

  4. Tara, For Love or Money is next up on my very tall TBR stack. Such a neat cover. And the Christmas novellas are going to come all too soon. Since I love fall most of all, maybe even more than Christmas, the Heartwarming Thanksgiving stories look very enticing too. Like Muriel says---ducking because December looms large this year.

  5. You always have so much going on, I don't know how you do it all. :) As for me, this morning I'm heading out to start cleaning out my storage unit, LOL. Happy laundry folding!

  8. I really liked for Love or Money, especially the mom's dedication to her son. I've preordered the Christmas anthology. Looking forward to it. Enjoy your folding; you've earned it.

  9. I remember when my bucket list had "become published". Boy, once that happens, the to-do list just explodes. I'm glad you reminded me to order to Christmas anthologies. I've tagged it on my Facebook.

    UP at 5 to write, then get Mike ready for school (remember to shower) 8:30 meeting, 11:30 meeting, call Mike's doctor see if I can squeeze in an appointment for after school, and 1:00 meeting. Come home from work exhausted and happy.
