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.

BE SWEPT BACK IN TIME! The Governor's Daughter—FREE for Limited Time!


THE GOVERNOR'S DAUGHTER
Cathryn Blankenship has no desire for a season in London! Why on earth would her father want her to leave her home in Charles Town? Upon Cathryn’s steadfast refusal, Governor Blankenship is forced to assign a young lieutenant to watch over Cathryn on the journey and ensure his daughter’s appearance in London. Cathryn finds Lieutenant Jake Pennington the most aggravating, maddening man she has ever met...a man Cathryn soon admits she is in no hurry to see leave.

But fate has other plans for her in a world she is ill prepared to enter. She descends into a place where love and betrayal go hand and hand, where greed and treachery are second nature, but moreover the threat her father believes he has sent her is awaiting her arrival. When fate tears her apart from her Lieutenant, Cathryn finds herself desolate and alone. Soon, Cathryn makes fateful decisions that will send her back to her home.
A home far different than the one she left. A war rages. Soon, she discovers her life is in danger and the only one that can save her is the one who left her heartbroken.

Author's Note: This book was previously published with Whiskey Creek Press as The Judas Kiss and The Promise under the Tides of Charleston Series.
