Debut Novel Winner & On the Newsfront

On August 7th, I hosted the fantabulous Pamela Hearon who is celebrating the release of her debut novel OUT OF THE DEPTHS with Super Romance. If you haven't had a chance to read about her journey to publication, I encourage to visit her interview here. Many comments were made and one lucky commentator won a copy of Pamela's book.

Drum roll please....

Melissa Outhaka Wins!!!

Congratulations Melissa! 

In other news, I've got some fun stuff happening on the Veranda. Later this month I'm interviewing my friend and fellow writer M.V. Freeman about her debut novel's release INCANDESCENT. It's a wonderful paranormal romance that you can already pre-order from Amazon and Barnes & Noble and through Crimson Romance. This is a digital book, so prepare your e-reader for a fantastic journey with M.V. Freeman's cast of characters who have special powers.

I'm also hosting my book club this month. We're reading THE RIVER WITCH by Kimberly Brock. If you want to read about her writing journey toward publication click here.

On the home front I've finally launched my chick into Auburn. War Eagle!!! Now I have no excuses and must sit down to write the next story. Although TYCOON was rejected, this writer was not rejected and must come up with a new set of amazing characters and three chapters to send to the editor. The story has finally germinated after much mulling and analyzing and cheapo writer's juice consumption. I begin building this new story TODAY!! So guess where I'll be for a while? Yup. In my writing cave and loving it!!

And there's nothing better than a shiny new story to build. Cassie and Marco's journey toward their happily ever after has changed, but the core of the story remains the same. Two lost souls find each other and discover home. 

That's my news. What's yours?

Thanks for the Shout out Christine!

And I'm cheering you on as you write. :) May the words and story flow.

I am revising a partial--that is my goal. Onward and upward!

So, no more distraction, huh? Will you change the name of your blog? :-) It's a fabulous feeling when the story comes togther and you just know it's right. Congrats and (((hugs)))!

M.V., You are so welcome. Good luck on the revisions.

Hi Pamela: I am always digging out of distraction, but when I get out, I work work work. Can't wait to hit this story hard.
