It’s always fun to have a new book out and this week I’m celebrating the release of my second novella in the Driftwood Bay series I’m writing for Tule Publishing. Tule is a boutique publisher based in California that focuses on e-book novellas and full length romance in various genres. Started by author Jane Porter and some friends, it continues to grow and expand.
I write sweet, inspirational stories for Tule’s Southern Born line. My first novella came out last year. Driftwood Cowboy and the current Driftwood Hero are both based in a small Gulf-coast community I call Driftwood Bay. But the stories move back and forth between that community and Northwest Louisiana (where I lived for thirty years.) These stories are about three Louisiana sisters who visit a family-owned beach house on the bay. There, they find strength in God’s love, pray, walk the beach and sometimes, fall in love. We all know how the ocean can soothe any lost soul.
I decided to try my hand at something a bit quirky and different but still in my voice and still warm-hearted and PG-13 rated. I appreciate how Tule allows me to write my stories my way but with good editorial direction. I can work on these and keep up my pace with my Love Inspired and Love Inspired Suspense stories, which I also enjoy writing.
Sometimes, it’s good to branch out and try something different. It’s challenging and scary and risky but I’ve learned so much from this new venture. And I’ve made some new friends who appreciate the art of the written word as much as I do. If you enjoy stories that are sweet but with a bit of edge, you might consider these two connected novellas. I also love the covers. They are highly romantic. Driftwood Cowboy is still available on most e-reader sites and now Driftwood Hero is out there. The third book–Driftwood Bride–will be out in early summer (hopefully). Here are the two books. Do you like romantic covers? Or do you prefer landscapes and still life?
