It’s my turn to have a “last post” on Contemporary Romance Café.
I have been so blessed to be a part of such a great group of writers. It’ll be a little weird not to have to remember the first Friday of every month and try to come up with something brilliant (as if…) to write!
Let me first give you a quick update on how things are going with my husband’s battle against colon cancer.
Jeff had a PET scan as a follow up to his radiation. There was some good news and a little bad. The good is that the two cancerous areas being radiated are now nothing but scar tissue, and that means the treatment was 100% successful! The bad is that a very small hot spot has appeared on his left lung. According to the oncologist, having colon cancer is like constantly “putting out fires.” We will have to be vigilant to address any of these spots that appear in the future. In this case, the doctor is sure radiation will end the new spot the same way it did the two other areas. A few lymph nodes are a little “hotter,” but we’re going to take a wait and see approach to those until after the radiation is completed.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the well-wishes, the messages, the comments, and the prayers you’ve all offered to support us through this journey. Jeff and I appreciate them more than you could know.
Next, let me tell you what lies ahead for my writing career—at least for the near future.
I have a new series coming from Grand Central Forever Yours called Nashville Dreams. The first book, Can’t Walk Away, will debut in March. You can pre-order on Amazon, B&N, iBooks, and Kobo.
Finally, I want to thank the writers of Contemporary Romance Café for allowing me to be a part of their world. I wish them all the greatest success!
I’m happy to have a second bite at the apple! (For those of you who are confused by that statement, I totally screwed up my post last month, thinking it was THIS month’s theme. So I get to write about … Continue reading →
This month’s topic is about deleted scenes. I thought about sharing one. Heaven knows I’ve had more than my share of scenes I’ve cut through the years. Instead, I’m going one better. I’m not going to talk about scenes I’ve … Continue reading →
April is here! My turn at bat—on April Fools’ Day, no less… Since the topic is open, I thought I’d write about time. I’m sure a lot of you out there will empathize with some of this… We all face … Continue reading →
Since March’s topic is Writing Life, I’m going to share a story with you… I always remember what agony it was as a child to have my father tell me his “stories.” You know the ones I’m talking about… They … Continue reading →
I love my critique partners. If it weren’t for their help, most of what I write would probably be gibberish. They point of continuity problems, find the ever-present typos that plague a writer, and often can simply tell me when … Continue reading →
Since my turn to blog on Contemporary Romance Cafe is the first Friday of the month, I get to kick off our 2016 posts! And I want to do that by saying…screw you 2015! I know that sounds a bit … Continue reading →
When I found out the theme for November was writing about holidays, I despaired. (I know, I know. Writers exaggerate. I was a little worried, okay?) Why? Because I had to rack my brain to remember if I’d included a … Continue reading →
I’m writing again! A fun story set in Nashville with an alpha hero, a free spirit heroine, and tons of sexual tension. What has helped release the dam holding back my ideas? My husband—he’s cancer-free. Well, as he always qualifies … Continue reading →
My latest release is my first scifi romance, The Seeker! Release date is…TOMORROW! Please allow me to share an excerpt with you! **** Chance trotted beside her to the cabin and went right on through the door as if he’d … Continue reading →
