I’m fashionably late today but if you could see my pajamas and my puffy eyes, you would not call me fashionable at all. I have many excuses, however. Sunday afternoon, I put the finishing touches on a book due on Monday. Then my husband and I cleaned and rearranged my office so I could see out into the front yard more and enjoy the new recliner Santa brought me. It has beach words all over it! (And had my name written all over it, according to my husband.)
After we had rearranged, I cleared away the clutter that comes with researching and working on a book. Lots of scribbling that now makes no sense at all. Then on Tuesday, I did edits on a suspense, started research and the draft for the next proposal and thought about working on a sweet novel due to Tule in about a month. (Never got that far, however.) Finished up and went to eat lasagna my husband had cooked. Good! Add to that, watching the weather because a huge ice storm has covered the South and well, most of the rest of the country, too. So I promptly forgot to write and schedule this post. EVEN THOUGH I HAD IT WRITTEN ON MY CALENDAR PAGE!!!
But I’m here now and since writing is such a fast paced, get it done job, we like to celebrate the fruits of our labor. So here are two of my upcoming books:
This one is from Tule Publishing and will be out in February. It’s a modern day version of the Cinderella story that involves Castle’s Department Store in Dallas, Texas and … shoes, of course!!! Such fun to write.
And this one is a totally different book, my first Amish book. I never thought I’d write Amish but this idea came to me while I was walking on the beach and it stayed with me. This book was challenging but so healing to me. I do love this cover. And because I’m celebrating a clean, rearranged office and new books out this year, I’m giving away a copy of Their Amish Reunion! Just post here and tell me if you’ve ever been late for a very important date or have you ever forgotten something you needed to be doing?
P.S. We got a smidgen of ice and snow this morning. Snow on palm trees is something you don’t see every day. Stay safe and warm, my friends.
