• Annnd…It’s Monday, Friends

    Wowzers, I can’t believe it is already the middle of August. Grandboy starts school today, online, the weather is pure Midwest summer–sultry with the occasional t-storm, and I’m still in book promotion. Meant to Be, book 2 in the Four Irish Brothers Winery series is free for a few days, so if you haven’t read it yet, here’s your chance. But hurry, it won’t stay free for very long! Today, my focus will be writing the new series. My amazing publisher has been doing workshops that have been incredibly inspiring, and now Ryker and Kitt’s story is bouncing around in my head like a tennis ball. It’s coming together, they’re…

  • On Promotion…And Some News!

    So…promotion…I’m not great at it. Some might even say I suck at it. I love writing, I love putting a new book out into the world, I love it when people read said book and leave glowing reviews. Heck, I don’t even mind not-so-glowing reviews–at least they read it, right? What I don’t love is promotion. I’m just not good at it–it doesn’t fit me. I’m uncomfortable in the Look-at-Me suit that you have to put on in order to market books. I’m fortunate that my publisher, Tule Publishing, is so great at helping out with promotion, otherwise I’d probably never sell a book. And they motivate me to get…

  • The Baby Contract

    We’ve got a cover and a title for Brendan Flaherty’s story, Book 4 in the Four Irish Brothers Winery series from yours truly and Tule Publishing. The Baby Contract. I’m so excited about this book because Brendan didn’t really start talking to me until I was into his book. His character was a little hazy at first, as was Tierney Ashton’s. But as I wrote their story, they both got so very chatty that it was hard to decide which part of their story to tell. I think the book is the longest one in the series and honestly, it could have been a series in itself. They are intriguing…

  • The Famous Sister

    I love that I’m currently ranked #33 among all of Amazon’s Best-Selling Contemporary Romance Authors–what a wonderful feeling that is! My sister, PJ, teasingly refers to me as “my famous sister,” which I find delightful and hilarious because although I treasure her pride in my writing, I’m hardly famous. I’m simply a midlist romance author, although I do have a small cadre of loyal readers to whom I owe any success I can lay claim to. My publisher, Tule Publishing, has added to that group and I’m ever always grateful to the team there who work so hard on my behalf. But I have to tell you honestly, as I…

  • Hunkering Down…Really?

    Right off, this is not news for me–I’m a freelance editor. Lock-down has basically been my life since 1996. I work from home, I write at home, I’m pretty much at home about 70% of the time. However, the whole idea that I have to stay at home is new to me and frankly, it’s kinda bugging me. I keep thinking of reasons I need to get in the car and go somewhere. If this self-quarantine thing wasn’t happening, I’d be merrily working away, needing nothing. Go figure. Here’s the thing, though; this isn’t really terrifying me. We needed a reset in this country, maybe this is the start of…

  • So Close…

    I’m soclose to writing THE END on Book 4 of the Four Irish Brothers Winery series–Brendan’s story. Very soon, I’ll have a title and cover reveal for you. This series has been a ton of fun to write and I’m delighted my publisher and readers are loving the Flaherty brothers and the town of River’s Edge. In fact, my publisher has invited me to write another series that happens in River’s Edge, Indiana. So stay tuned! All your favorite characters–Mac from the Riverside Diner, Noah from the hardware store, Dot and Mary from the quilt store, Janet from the yarn shop, and many others old friends, as well as the…
