Celebrating!

If you’ve been following my writing agonies and struggles to keep focused on my WIP, What She Didn’t Know, I’d just like to say…

WOOHOO! I’ve done it!

The first draft of What She Didn’t Know is now FINISHED! 🎊🎉 🍾🥂🌟🎊🎉

I’m going to go out to dinner tonight to celebrate. It took me a year and half to finish this novel of 88,000+ words through much mental exhaustion, sweat, dedication, and love!

And. It. Feels. Darn. Good!

My First Radio Interview

Last night, I was interviewed about my writing by my dear friend, John, on his radio show. The interviews are in fifteen minute segments. My interview is the last one.

Just an FYI: The interview wasn’t scripted, basically informal, so this shy introvert did the best she could with her first interview about her books.

By the way, the name of the anthology with my short story, Summer Memories, in it is called Take a Mind Trip, available on Amazon, if you’re into reading anthologies. At this time, you can read the anthology for free on Kindle.

Summer Memories was one of the first short stories I wrote when I returned to writing in 2014. It was written in 2015.

In the future, I will probably combine all my short stories into one book.

The Business of a Brilliant Blurb

I’ve been working on my blurb for Passage of Promise, and I believe I’ve gotten it where I want it. With a little help from my husband and oldest son on tweaking a few words, the blurb came together. Hope you like it and find it intriguing!

Marina loves babysitting her four-year-old nephew, Christopher. But when her family gets the shattering news of her nephew’s life-threatening illness, their lives are forever changed.

Marina’s family sends her to the Greek island of Santorini to retrieve her great grandmother’s wonder-working icon of Saints Anna and Mary for healing Christopher. But Marina discovers the icon has been stolen. She recruits a high school English teacher vacationing on the island to help her search for her great grandmother’s precious heirloom. During the search, she finds something more than the icon.

Returning home, Marina must face her fears of Christopher’s serious health condition and her family’s fractured bonds. Will she gain the courage and faith through Saint Anna’s guidance to bring about healing for her family and a love that lasts?
