Coming Soon!

Jenna is running from an over-bearing father and Jack is running from the pain of his past. A terrible car accident throws this mismatched couple together for a heartwarming Christmas story--Snow Angel 
That's right! I just signed a contract with Passion In Print for my Novella - Snow Angel. Coming Soon!  I'll be sure to shout out the release date as soon as I have one!  I'm so happy to have a Christmas story for the Holidays!  Yes, it's written by ADELLE Laudan , so it's not a hot erotic tale, but I promise it will warm your heart.

Just a Note

Hi there! It's been awhile. I'm sorry for that. I just finished writing a Christmas story I think you'll really love. Once I finished it, I tried to go back and work on my WIP, a dark suspense about a serial killer. Trust me, the transition from Christmas to serial killers is not an easy task. Especially when the characters from your Christmas story are still hanging out in your mind. It seems my muse feels Jack & Jenna's story is not finished. I am putting together on an outline and hope to work on it for NaNoWriMo this year, that is if my muse co-operates.

I've got a fun Thursday 13 planned for this week.On November 4th is Blog Blast for Peace. I am totally looking forward to that.

We had a lovely turkey dinner at my best friends' house today. I love a good turkey stuffing, and she's a master when it comes to cooking. I think it's mandatory after a good feed of turkey to turn in early, which is where I am headed now. Why do I have a feeling my muse is going to make this difficult?

G'nite, sleep tight, and may all your dreams come true.
