Romantic Times!

I got some great news this afternoon from my very good friend Cindi Myers. My Summerside Press book Love Finds You in Treasure Island, Florida is a Romantic Times July Top Pick with a 4-1/2 star review! Wahoo!

One thing I've learned in this business is that things change from day to day. I had no idea my book was even being reviewed, but thanks to publicist Jeane Wynn and the wonderful folks at Summerside, the reviewer got the book in time to read it.

Isn't life like that, though? We think we have everything all figured out, but the Lord has a much bigger plan, with little surprises along the way—some happy and others that leave us wondering why. I’ve suffered the pain of rejection many times, but this little reward made up for it.

Thanks, Debra! I'm still very happy, but now I have to focus on my to-do list for the day: Long Ridge instruction, vacuum the carpet, write pages for my next book, dust the furniture, laundry, cook dinner. The glamorous life of a writer!

Congratulations, Debby! YAAAAAYYYY!

As you go through your to-do list, though, remember that you are wearing the 4 1/2 stars tiara! Not many writers get to wear that!

Congratulations again! (And you look very nice in the tiara, by the way!)
