Gardenias Blooming and Contests Brewing :)

First off, here are the photos of my gardenia bush that I mentioned the other day. I wish I could pass along the wonderful, sweet fragrance. But you'll just have to use your imagination.

I've also inluded a photo of how I usually display them in the house. I choose a clear vase and float a single blossom. It's about all the fragrance we can handle in a closed space! :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you'll check out my blog tour schedule to the right. I'm visiting a lot of blogs this month to celebrate the release of my new book, His Forever Love.

I hope you'll stop by to see my four-legged babies (aka my doggies) on Roxanne Rustand's blog! She has a new blog, All Creatures Great and Small, and will be featuring our pets. I share the story of getting my dogs when they were "babies". :)

And don't forget the contest at Harlequin/Silhouette Readers (til June 15). Win a book and some Mary Kay self-tanner. You can enjoy a beach read and tan right at home!
Also, come see me this week at Margaret Daley's blog:
And at the Love Inspired Authors Blog:
And on Friday, at the Steeple Hill Books Facebook, Shoutlife and My Space blogs!

Hi Missy:

You have a very nice web site here. You sure seem busy. Are you currently writing a book or are you between books promoting your current release?

Thanks for checking out my sites.

Hannah, the month that a book comes out is pretty crazy! Luckily a lot of the promotion can be done online. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi, Vince. I appreciate your comments on my blog/website!

I'm actually finishing the final edits for my November book (got done today!). It's the very last look I'll get at the book before it goes to print, and as I read the ending, I felt a real sense of contentment. I like how it turned out--thanks to my editors' great work! (And I appreciate your feedback. I think I got the reader rewards in there! :))

I'm also working on a proposal for another book for Steeple Hill. I'm anxious to get back to it. Just another chapter or so to write, plus a synopsis. Then I'll be ready to send it off.

AND, I'm also promoting. I'm doing a blog tour plus a couple of book signings this month. I'll also do a couple of newspaper articles. But it's all fun! :)

Thanks for stopping by! I enjoyed visiting your blog.

The November book is about Gregory, right? I think that is an amazing idea!! I cannot wait to read a story about him. He is so deserving. By the way, I LOVED the ending of His Forever Love. It was a very fulfilling read, if I haven't told you that yet!
