Two Amazon Giveaways for New Release!

I love to give back to others so here is your chance to win my newest release. All you have to do is click on the links below and send a tweet to enter for a chance to win.

Here’s the blurb for Thinking About Love, Part 1 on Amazon.

Can love trump faith?
Seventeen year old, Trina Weber has the world at her feet: beautiful, part of the in-crowd, and with almost enough college credits to earn her AA while only a junior at Stonehaven High School.
With her whole life planned, all she needs to complete her perfect world is a boyfriend.
But not any guy will do.
She’s searching for a partner, who will accept her goals and all the studying that goes with becoming a family doctor.
When the gorgeous, equally ambitious college freshman Stuart Grant blazes into her South Florida paradise, he fits right in. He’s everything she dreamed of and more…except he doesn’t agree with the most important part of who she is.

The two links for the giveaway are:

1st giveaway    2nd giveaway

All the giveaway rules are on Amazon’s website.

Both giveaways end on June 28th at 11:59 pm PST. If you don’t win you can borrow it for FREE on KU or purchase it for only $0.99!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I want to wish all the moms reading this post a Happy Mother’s Day.

May this day be filled with the love you share with your children, grandchildren, moms, and grandmas or any other special mom in your life.

This day is bittersweet for me.

Unfortunately, my mom passed away before my children were born. While I enjoy the day with my own HEA hero and my children, every year I wish she could be here with us to celebrate her and the love I had for her.

I would’ve written her a card so I could express everything she meant to me in my own words, swallow her petite frame with big hugs, kiss her beautiful face, buy her a gift she really wanted, and spent time with her returning the love she always showed me.

If you can, please spend the day or a few hours or even make a call to express your love to that special mom in your life. We just never know.

And if you can share some love with other moms, even those who are strangers, by wishing them a Happy Mother’s Day.

You just might make that mom’s day.

This made my day: A 5 Star Review from a Blogger and not a Fellow Writer!

Last week, my husband told me that a co-worker had complained that she couldn’t put my book down and therefore couldn’t complete her weekend to do list. It made my day. But the next day, a tiny bit of doubt crept in because she knew my husband.

But today, was totally different.

A blogger, an actual reader, posted that she loved my book.

A five out of five stars!

Can I scream at the top of my lungs without being hauled in for a psychiatric evaluation?

I’m beyond ecstatic as I write these words. And once I’m done here I’m posting it all over social media, because yes, I’m super excited.

Here’s the link if you want to read it. Alyttérature

Please feel free to comment: am I crazy for being so happy or not?

Alycia, thank you so much!

¡Muchísimas gracias, Alycia!

Je vous remercie, Alycia!

Yes, today I have been shown love.

Stretched Nerves or Jumping Beans?

I’m finishing up with the last and final, I hope, edit of my novel before it’s handed off to formatting. And at the moment, I can’t decide if my nerves are stretching or if my stomach has jumping beans bouncing off its walls. It comes in spurts as I listen to the monotone voice on Word read two pages at a time.

Yikes, did my editor miss that typo? If he did, are there more? Or is it my eyes playing tricks on me. I double check the spelling as my ears listen to the slow, boring voice read on. And there go the nerves, pulled too thin.

Will the readers complain if they see a tiny typo or will their brain skip over it because the first and last letters are right? Oh, no the dreaded bad review because my editor and I missed a typo.

Should I postpone the release?

No!

It’s time to let this baby enter into the unknown world of readers and see how well it’s received. My friends and family say I’ve held on to this book too long and they’re right. Almost five years after I finished the first draft and thousands of hours working on it.

Yes, it’s time.

Besides NaNoWriMo 2016 is right around the corner and I haven’t figured out whose story to work on next. Jason? Sabrina? The antagonist, Dave? Or  the bus story?

Heck my first born entered college this August and I can’t decide, which one I dreaded releasing more to the world. He is in a safer environment than my book will be, so it seemed easier after a year of preparing for the final day we said, “Bye.” And he did come back for laundry day and brought a friend, who is the sweetest suite mate.

Hence the toss up between nervousness and excitement.

Fortunately, my to do list is reaching the stratosphere. Okay I’m exaggerating, but it sure feels like it, so sometimes it’s more like numbness that I’m feeling.

Until next time.

When maybe

                           I

                                 ….. WILL   (drum roll, please)

BE

PUBLISHED!

I bury my head back into my book, and yes, the nerves are stretched and the jumping beans ricocheted off the walls.
