My New Cover!!

I don't have permission to post the cover of my November Love Inspired, A Forever Christmas, yet. But I thought I'd give you a link so you can check it out. I absolutely LOVE it!! They took my art fact sheet and the photos I sent them (that showed how I envisioned the cover) and made the most gorgeous cover!! Click here to see it on CBD. If you click on the cover, it'll enlarge. :)





Don't forget to check out my blog tour to the right! I still have a few more stops. And I'm giving away books at most sites. :)

AWOL!


So sorry I've been AWOL! I've been working on a new proposal, trying to polish and finish up the synopsis. And my parents and sister have come to town for Father's Day, so we've been doing fun things during the day.


Today we visited a quilting shop, bead shop and yarn shop in Watkinsville. You can tell what my sister loves best! :) And I actually had a great time. Mindy brought me a cute pin she'd quilted (see photo), and I bought supplies to make some pins myself. I'm hoping to offer them as blog prizes. So maybe by the next book release in November, I'll have some made!


And speaking of new releases... Don't forget to check out my blog tour schedule on the right. Come visit and say hello!

Book Sighting!


Finally, a book sighting! I'd heard word of people buying a copy of His Forever Love. But I finally found it at Walmart the other day!
And it's no less exciting the second time around. :) I thought I'd share a couple of photos. Woo hoo!

Also, for writers, the Break Into Fiction site is hosting several bestselling authors this week who've answered writing questions in a Writing Extravaganza. It looks interesting and will only be online this week! So check it out: http://www.breakintofiction.com/fiveforfive1.html
The new non-fiction book they're promoting at that site, Break Into Fiction, is co-written by a writer friend of mine, Dianna Love. I'm sure it will be an excellent resource!

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". :)
