Whew, seems like we just flipped the calendar to 2018. What happened?? Already winter’s barged through NC, plummeting temps into the thirties at night, but that’s okay by me. After living in Florida for a gazillion years, where we could stow all our winter gear combined into one dresser drawer, I can hardly wait to pull out the sweaters and scarves. What’s one of your favorite aspects of winter?

And I’m ready to get back into my writing groove. This summer all I heard were nail guns popping and saws buzzing. Not much writing happened. Because of this…

Our kitchen remodel is finally complete! We love the new look. We were shooting for a contemporary rustic facelift. Here’s the “before.”

What do you think? Did we pull it off?

So my word count tanked, but it was still a productive year. Earlier this year His Valentine Promise released as part of the Cooking Up Kisses Valentine’s anthology featuring some of my very favorite authors, and I was thrilled to see that Amazon Bestseller banner show up!

Fully Committed released in August as part of the Fall in Love anthology, and it quickly catapulted to #1 on Amazon in its category on release day and again several days later. The collection will dissolve in February 2019 and then Fully Committed will release as an individual ebook. But for now, the Fall in Love collection features five sweet romances for only 99c, and BONUS, a recipe is included for each wonderful story! Check it out!

I enjoyed the whole contributing to an anthology experience that I committed to one more. Her Valentine Vet, the second book in the Cider Lake series, releases in January 2019, again with some of my favorite authors. Check out this amazing cover!

I can’t wait for you to meet Micaela and Murphy! A wealthy heiress. A shy veterinarian. Two adorable furbabies. A prescription for happily-ever-after or disaster?

What’s up next? I’m switching gears and heading back to the Merriville Firefighter Heroes to finish the 3rd book in the series, Fully Surrendered. Be prepared to swoon over sweet and hunky Bear, the last firefighter in the series. Doc Brink has her work cut out to take their relationship from friends to forever. Oh, and look for A Marshal’s Secret to release any day now. 😊

That’s it for me. Please know that you, dear reader, are one of my greatest blessings! It warms my heart to open your sweet, encouraging emails and to hop on Goodreads or Amazon and read your kind reviews, so keep them coming! You all are awesome!!

Thanks for hanging out with me for a few minutes. I hope you’ll come back often. Wishing you the most joyous of holidays and a blessed 2019!

With all my love,
