Merry Christmas

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas.  We ended up iced in and ate all the goodies that I made to take to the family dinner.  We'll be eating Cherry dessert I made for awhile.  And the cheese appetizer I made we'll also work on.

I am excited for this new year.  My project for the next few months is a WWII book that will come out in the Summer of 2014.  The series will be with B&H Publishing.  There will be a series of WWII books, but each will be written by a different author.  My book will be set in the Netherlands and England. More later.

I also will have a book out with Love Inspired.  In Redemption Ranch there was a female captain who was injured and was at the ranch to regain strength.  Well, I've finished her book and I'll let everyone know when her story will be out.

I pray this year will be a good one for you.

My prayer

With what happened in Connecticut all our hearts are sad.  It is beyond understanding.  It is my prayer the God will wrap each family, victims and survivors, in His tender love.   He can comfort them in ways we can't understand.  Please join me in prayer.

Brenda's story is finished.

Some of the best time a writer has is when they finish writing a book.  I finished Captain Brenda Kaye's story on Tuesday.  I did a happy dance, then sent the manuscript to my proofer.  There is no way I could turn a book in without another person reading it.  Most writers need another set of eyes to look over the book, but with me, well, it's twice as bad.

I met the lady who does my proofing when I was in Bonham at their library doing a reading.  Bonham has organized a day in Feb. when they invite local writers to come and talk.  The ladies there bring a dish and feed us all.  It is a wonderful day.  Meeting readers is a highlight.  And I love going there.  That's where I met my proofer and she's been doing it for me for several years.  She's a jem.
