Given the fact that Set Fire to the Rain is set to be release and the interactions of Winds of Betrayal characters in The Bastard Son, The Bastard Son will be FREE February 13-17.

BLURB:
Sumner Meador walked in a world of wealth and privilege as part of Charles Town’s elite, but that was years ago. Now he fights in the Southern backwoods driven by the passion he holds for the Patriot cause, shadowed by his past. Reeling from a devastating defeat at the hands of the British, Sumner seeks haven at his farm, only to find an interloper—an unwelcome and unwanted distraction. He has no time for the young woman or the complications she brings with her, but soon discovers he has no option but to give aid to the stubborn, courageous beauty whether she wants it or not.
Jane Kilmer has been violently thrust into the midst of the civil war ensuing in the backwoods. Hiding from one of the most dangerous vigilantes, Jane trusts no one. Suddenly, she has no choice but to put her life in Sumner’s hands. Both desire revenge, but neither wants what happens—to fall completely, undeniably in love with each other. As the war rages around them, their love is put to the ultimate test. The question becomes not whether their love will survive, but will they.

REVIEW~ C. Roberts
I wept at the end of the book for more than one reason. I was ready for the end of the series but I still want more. I loved this book the most because it pointed out the failure of resolution. It also pointed out that the north held their own prejudices. The most meaningful quote for me was when Jo reflected, "...life is not about making an impact on the world as we know it, but on the lives of those you love. I wonder what impact I have made..." This series is definitely the best I have ever read regarding the War Between the States. It was gripping, romantic, suspenseful and historical. A story well-woven.

The Holidays Are Upon Us!

I was shopping yesterday. It struck me that Christmas is just around the corner. The shops are filled already with Christmas decorations. Most years, I might have complained. This year, though, I think I appreciate the atmosphere more. I want to feel the joy and happiness that the holidays bring, even if it is before Thanksgiving.

To be honest, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It's about being thankful. This Thanksgiving, I'm so grateful for so much. My family. My health. Also, for having the precious time with my momma before she passed. The loss of my mother has hit me hard. She fought hard to recover from her stroke last November, but I will hold to the moments we shared during those last few months. She will always be in my heart.

I'm also grateful that I feel my writing again. It has come back.

For the holidays, I hope you enjoy the free books I have to offer you. Belle of Charleston is perma-free everywhere (Amazon, Barnes and NobleiTunes and Kobo). You can, also, get Shadows of Magnolia free if you sign-up for my newsletter.




BUT now you can also get WINDS OF BETRAYAL for FREE—ALMOST EVERYWHERE! 



Which means that Set Fire To the Rain is on the Horizon! I will have a release date in the next couple of weeks.





Also, Enter my new contest  #HOLIDAY #KINDLEVOYAGE CONTEST for your chance to win a Kindle Voyage...Just in time for Christmas.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
Be Safe!

It’s Hard to Say Good-by

Ramona and Gerald Caveness' Wedding Day

Last November, my mother had a stroke. Over the following year, she fought hard to recover. Unfortunately, she lost her battle last Saturday. She was 81.

My mother, Ramona, lived a full life. Reasonably, I know that it was 'her time.' I know that I'm old enough to understand that this is life. I have faith in God and his plan he holds for each of us. I take comfort in that knowledge.

But I wasn't ready to say good-by.

There is nothing...nothing like a mother's love.

Momma inspired my love for books. She is the reason I write. The picture I will always hold near my heart is her sitting in her chair with a book in her hand.

I am an Indie writer. In the Indie world, writers battle to compete with the big 5 publishers. Readers don't realize what goes on behind the covers. Nor should they. Readers deserve books that will entertain them and allow them an escape from reality for a short time. I am the one that has to deal with the extremely competitive world of publishing. To get your book in the hands of readers is like finding a needle in the haystack.

Before I began writing, I was not a business woman, but I had to become one to sell my books. I love to write and create stories and am so appreciative of the fans I have. I realize I owe them the conclusion to Winds of Betrayal. I have had emails asking when...when is Set Fire To The Rain coming. I have set dates that I have not met. For that I apologize.

The real reason it isn't complete is because I write what I feel. The story comes to me while I type. To be honest, I haven't felt the story since my mother became ill. It's hard to get into a book and have your attention drawn away. It is not an excuse, but the reason. The fact of the matter is, I'm truly not a very good business woman. My emotions get the better of me.

I do have some funny stories about Momma and my writing, but that will be for another day. Today, I am returning to writing with my momma, once again, as my inspiration.

Momma, you will be missed.
