Hi everyone. I'm so excited that November is here - it's one of my very favorite months. It's the month when my wedding anniversary, my parents' wedding anniversary, two of my children's birthdays and Thanksgiving all happen. And for all of that, family is front and center! I hope your November is equally as lovely!November is also the month when the Readers and 'ritas Reader weekend in Dallas occurs. I'll be attending, and not only hosting a table, but also sponsoring a readers' tea where there will be lots of fun giveaways! I hope to see some of you there..
On the writing front, I'm looking forward to the release of my Christmas book, The Holiday Courtship, next month. I just absolutely fell in love with the hero, Hank Chandler. And this book dealt with a few issues that were new to me, but so far it's been received positive. In fact, I'm excited to report this book received a 4-1/2 star review from Romantic Times Booklover Magazine. And of course I'm already at work on the next book in the Texas Grooms series. I'll give you a little more info on that one next month.Don't forget to take a look at the great guests I have lined up for my Spotlight Interviews.
- This month I'm welcoming the lovely Nancy Mehl into my spotlight. You can see her interview over on my AUTHOR VIP page!
And for my November giveaway, Nancy has generously agreed to give away a copy of Rising Darkness to one of my lucky newsletter subscribers.
- Also this month, I'm hosting Independent Editor Anne Victory in my Industry Spotlight. Be sure to check out her interview on my INDUSTRY VIP page.
And last but not least, here's my quote for the month.
Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another's skin, another's voice, another's soul.
~Joyce Carol Oates
