LONE HEART needs you!

Thanks to everyone who purchased Lone Heart this week! The sequel to True Heart is Lone’s story where he finally finds his “one-and-only”!

If you haven’t read the book, there’s still a way to do something to help get the word out. Please consider taking one minute to head to Amazon and “like” and “tag” the book. Here’s the link:
Post likes and tags at Amazon

If you read it, and feel so disposed, there’s something else you can do to help an author out…review it! Here are the links to the book. Choose your poison. Thanks so much!

Sunday Report Card

This week was a dismal one so far as getting new words on the page. I’ve been babysitting all week, and who knew a 7-year-old and a 3-year-old would be so unreasonable when asked to let Nina have some time alone at the computer. “Shhhh. Nina’s working.”(from the 7-year-old) “Nina? Whatcha doin’?” (from the 3-year-old) “I’ll be quiet!” (7-year-old says as she pulls down pens, paper, notebooks, to create her next masterpiece.)

1) I did manage to complete edits, polish, and ship “Marmalade” to an editor.

2) I recieved, but have not read, two more submissions for the anthology project, Wild at Heart! All you writers out there, be sure to check out the details. Stories must be submitted by April 1st! Find details here

3) In those rare moments when I did have quiet, I brainstormed some new ideas. I have tons of disconnected notes for new stories. Can’t wait for a stretch of time alone to think them all through!

This week, the kids go home and I get my life back. Then it’s head down, because I have a ton of work to get done! But enough dreamin’ about quiet time. I’m not there yet, and the 7-year-old just reminded me that we have to watch the new show “How to Rock” on Disney. So movin’ on…

New Contest! The Believe Fairy Contest

What can you win?
I took two pictures because the glare obscured the pretty picture. This is an Amy Brown fairy picture on a ceramic tile. You can use it in your kitchen or there’s a pretty ribbon that can be used to hang it. I have a woodland fairy hanging in my bathroom, just like this one. They are gorgeous and a large 8×10 inches.

How can you win?
Post a comment every day this contest runs. Each post is another chance to win!

This contest ends on February 16th!

    Congrats to Jennifer on winning the Three Signed Books Contest!

    I have “liked” all of your books at amazon.
    Even though you been watching those little ones and they have been a distraction from getting a lot done you still accomplish some stuff.
    I like the fairy picture.

    Your books are awesome. I always spread the word on facebook, goodreads and Library Thing. Plus I get friends into reading your books and they end up getting hooked.
    thanks for the contest. You always come up with some great prizes. :-P

    I have not read the new book yet, but I did like & tag it for you. Children are fun, but so much work! These days, I think I would go crazy keeping my nephews for more than a day or two at a time. They are aged 4, 6, & 11 (my nieces are 17 & 18 today).
