Finally Finished Writing My Book

I am dashing in to share some fun news, but first . . . These are the highlights of what has been happening in my life in the last year since I have blogged. My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary last May. I am more thankful for him and more in love with him than I have ever been. What an incredible blessing that is! Molly is now the author of 6, soon to be 7, books. She also started her own publishing company. My son finished his second year of college and has been accepted into a nursing program. And my youngest son graduated a year ago, which means the many years of home schooling are behind me. I loved home schooling, but after all those years, it’s a good feeling to be done and have accomplished what we did. Especially when I look at my kids, how close we are and how proud we are of them.

That leads me to my news. I put blogging on hold because I couldn’t do everything in a day I was trying to do. One of the things high on my list: writing. More than I had been. I knew it was finally time to finish that book I’ve been writing for so long. So, I got serious, worked hard, learned a lot, and spent a year finishing and editing. It’s finally done. I self-published with CreateSpace, like Molly, and am only waiting for the paperback to go live on Amazon. It’s crazy scary putting myself out there like this but very exciting. Smile

Here is the cover. eBooks are now available at Amazon and Smashwords. Back cover text below in case you are interested. Smile

Wooing Sam Walker's Widow

When a retired firefighter-turned
resort owner moves in next door, the tranquility
of a young widow’s life is shattered.

Living in a small cottage with her three
young daughters, Carly Walker is content to remain
the widow of the only man she will ever love.

Mac McCaughey has other ideas.
Widowed and starting over, he makes no secret of his intent
to woo her. She makes no secret of her intent to resist.

Carly doesn’t want anyone but the husband she had,
but with her large family encouraging her, her girls loving him
like crazy, and even her dog trailing after him, how long can
she possibly resist a man who makes her heart race?
