Girls Write Out
Tuesday, October 12, 2010

I've been working on Lonestar Angel like a madwoman (as Denise can attest since I've been burying her with scenes to read) and feeling a bit overwhelmed with family health issues. And we're going to Hawaii so the book has to get done! But what a great week it's been in spite of those challenges.

I have great friends. That makes everything bearable when the stress piles on. I was a finalist for the Glick Indiana Author Award in the Regional category. The big day was Saturday. I spoke on a panel with other finalists (that was way fun!) and the library put me and Dave up in the Omni, a great experience. I was treated like royalty. Then Saturday night at the big banquet, Diann, Jim, Denise and Kevin all showed up! When you have friends like that, what challenge can overwhelm you? Sitting there waiting for the announcement would have been unbearable except for my buds. I didn't win (I didn't expect to though. The rest of them are all college professors.) and I didn't mind because I had my peeps around me! It was a great evening. :)

Then yesterday I found out that The Lightkeeper's Daughter hit the CBA bestseller list. I have a great publishing team. What would I do without them? I'm so blessed!

So in honor of the fun week, I'm giving away 5 copies of my new book, The Lightkeeper's Bride. To enter, comment here on the blog or on our Facebook page or my personal Facebook page. Or if you're not into social media, email me at

Good luck! And I'm so blessed to count you all as friends.
