Lucky Number Ten

Hey everyone!

I know it's been quite a while since I last posted.  That's simply because our lives have been rather chaotic with post-surgery stuff, collapsing lungs, and pneumonia...but God has been merciful, and Daniel now appears truly on the mend.

So first, I want to thank you all for your prayers.  Your words of kindness, of consolation, of encouragement have meant more to me than I could ever aptly express.

Along with the stress, however, there has certainly been excitement.  And again, I owe my gratitude to all my readers.

Family Fiction Magazine in their Mar/Apr edition listed me as one of the "Top Ten Essential Voices in Regency Romance."

Then, for Family Fiction's Readers' Choice Awards, (listed in the May/Jun edition) I was listed in the Top Ten list for "New Author of the Year."

So, since I was 10th on both lists, I'm thinking I might have a new lucky number on my hands here ;o).

Now, i'm hoping everyone will forgive me for being slack in responding to messages, or sending out promised packages, etc.  I'm getting back on schedule, and hopefully, I'll have everything caught up in the next week or so.

Until my next post, I just want to say THANK YOU again.

I truly have the BEST readers in the world!

Launch Party for Engaging the Earl

Hi everyone!

I'm writing this from the waiting room at Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.  Today is my husband's major surgery to have his first rib resected (don't ask, even explaining it makes me cringe) and to replace the main vein in his chest because its been damaged by being pinched and having the blood clots.

So, since I have Wi-Fi and some extra time (and a ridiculous amount of nervous energy), I'm posting about the launch party coming up this Saturday, March 10th, 2012 for my newest Regency Inspirational romance, Engaging the Earl.

Here's the official press release from Fiction Addiction:  LAUNCH PARTY AND BOOK SIGNING

Just a note to tell everyone that the epilogue for The Blackmailed Bride can be found via a page link at the top of this blog.  Where there were two parts and two separate pages previously, I combined them for ease of viewing.

Slight Delay

First, I would like to apologize for not having Part II of the Epilogue to The Blackmailed Bride posted already.

As those of you who follow me on twitter or on Facebook might know, since the beginning of the year, my husband has been struggling with having both a blood clot in his arm and one in his shoulder/chest. This, of course, has resulted in several surgeries, an extended stay in ICU, and basically mass chaos at our house while we wait for these clots to dissolve.

We discovered earlier this week that my husband is being sent to the Medical University here in SC (about 3+ hours away from our home), so my life has been in a bit of an uproar, trying to pack enough clothes for an indefinite period of time, making sure to spend plenty of time with my four-year-old daughter who will be staying behind with my sister while we are gone, and basically trying to make sure I have everything done before we leave.

So, I heartily apologize for not having the second part of the epilogue posted yet. That is my priority either as the last thing I do when I go to bed tonight, or the first bit of business in the morning. Fortunately, the hard work is already completed; I just have to do a proof before I post it.

But to all my fans/readers, I apologize for being off my game.

But I would ask that you keep my husband and family in your thoughts and prayers. From what I understand, the surgery he is having done is very risky and rare (only about 15 of them done a year in the whole country). And while I am not a person that usually vents all the "woe-is-me" moments in my life online, I am hoping that you will all join me in believing for the best!

And Part II of the Epilogue to follow...promise =)

((Also, I understand that some members of the LIH bookclub have already received their copies of Engaging the Earl. While I mentioned it in the "Dear Author" letter, I just want to reiterate that I welcome ALL feedback. You can reach me through the various methods on the "Contact Me" page at the top of the screen, or you can send an email to

Epilogue for The Blackmailed Bride (First Installment)

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

In honor of this day of love, I've been authorized to post an epilogue to my first Love Inspired Regency, The Blackmailed Bride.

Since I can't be too sweet, however, (it goes against my nature ;o), I'll be posting the epilogue in two installments. (Got to do something to keep the suspense up, after all).

Below is the link to the static page with the first installment. Watch for the second installment coming later today!
