Every year The Bearded One and I go in search of a yearly Christmas ornament. This year we didn’t have a chance to look before Christmas (we don’t like to go too early), so the day after Christmas we went to St. Nicks and amazingly they were already low on stock! I was a little worried that we wouldn’t find our special ornament this year, but low and behold we found it! We actually had found a couple others that would do but were not nearly as cute or “us” as this one. I am a huge fan of tradition and this is one the The Bearded One and I agree on that must be repeated every year. There are some others that we both enjoy but I tend to be the driving force behind them. I don’t mind, though it is nice to have a few that he is as gungho about as I am.
Yesterday evening I received this wonderful message. This is the kind of thing that totally makes an authors day and better yet, urges us on to keep writing. For me personally, it pushed me that much farther to believing I actually have something special here. I know, I know, it might seem that if I didn’t believe I had something special I wouldn’t have published, but in my case that’s not exactly how things went. So after going to bed with a huge grin on my face and a renewed sense of wanting to write book 2 I woke up to the second surprise. A stinken author recommendation on Facebook! it might not seem like a big deal but people sharing an indie authors work is huge for us because we don’t have the budget to promote like the big publishing houses do. Reviews, recommendations, shares and all those other little things go a really long way for us. On top of that, what Jamie said in her recommendation completely and totally made my day! I couldn’t hold back my enthusiasm and had to share. I am blessed and honored to be able to write a story that pulls people in like this.
It’s finally here! I know that its 7 days later than I initially announced and I am really sorry, but the ebook is now live! Being the first book I’ve published there were some unexpected technical difficulties that I ran into. Hence, the later date than I advertised. Speaking of technical issues, I had to switch printers, and as a result my paperback books have also been delayed for a little longer. This is a whole new learning experience and I am so grateful for all the patience that you have had with me and this process. I will let you know as soon as the print and audio versions go live, but in the meantime I hope you will enjoy the ebook!
This has been a long road with plenty of unexpected twists and turns but I am happy to say that my first book is going to be published on September 20th! After Bridges Burn is the first installment in the Cassidy Chronicles and I am over the moon to be able to begin to share this amazing story with all of you.
Is forgiveness possible when the truth finally comes out?
When Summer returns, after disappearing with nothing more than a note telling her family not to look for her, will she be able to rebuild the relationships she broke or will her secrets destroy everything that’s left?
