I'm not gone

No, I haven't abandoned this blog. Life has gotten in the way.

My grandson was born two months early. He's doing well, thank you very much. We still don't know when he'll be released from the hospital, but he's not having any unusual medical issues. He's not even in the NICU anymore. :)

But in the meantime, I have a baby quilt to get finished. I'm working on it like crazy, because I'd love to have it done in time for him to be wrapped up in it when he goes home. That means my writing time has ceased to exist. Yes, I miss it, but first things first.

I'd hoped to have my next book, Her Ladyship's Ring, released by the end of January. That's not going to happen. I haven't set a new time frame in my mind yet, but maybe March? I'll be taking off for a couple of weeks when he is released to spend time with him and his parents, and that will factor into the schedule. Once things settle down somewhat, I'll let you know.

And hey, when I get the quilt done, (it's a stamped cross-stitch embroidery kit) I'll post it on here.  

Thanks for reading!

Happy New Year! And I did it!  I finished the quilt. As I promised, here's a picture.

Cover Reveal- Double Betrayal by Ada Frost

Double Betrayal (Surviving #3)


Ada Frost

Release date: 29th January

Firstly I want to thank you for taking part in my cover reveal, you don’t know how much your support means to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart x

Emily’s life had three basic rules, love her family fiercely. Never expect forever and most importantly, shield her heart from pain. At a tender age she had learned love is not forever, sex destroys and if you don’t invest your heart, it can never be broken. She played life safe.
All it takes though, is one moment, a defining light in the perpetual darkness to bring life into your heart. For Emily, it was a night she would never forget, an ordinary evening of dancing, drinking and if she was in the mood, a brief one night stand. But then he beguiled her. His emerald eyes captivated and enslaved her to him.
What Emily didn’t anticipate was the mysterious giant to sit beside her and rock her foundations. His dirty mouth and sexy innuendos intrigued her. The green eyed Adonis took her for the ride of her life, on his motorbike. One she would never forget. He intertwined himself into her life and captured her soul.
But the illusion of beauty can hide a broken past. And as the lovers fall deeper, the darkness leeches into the light, suffocating and destroying all within its path. Until there is nothing left but betrayal and shattered hearts.
Due to sexual content, it may not be suitable for readers under the age of 18 years of age.

New Release from my friend Lila Rose

I'm tickled to share this. Lila Rose was an immense help with my first book, Wolves' Pawn. Her new book looks to be another great read!

Title: Black Out
Author: Lila Rose
Series: Hawks MC Series, Book 3
Genre: Fiction/Humorous/Romance/Erotica 
Cover Designer: Louisa at LM Creations  
Release Date: December 15, 2014

At twenty-four, Clarinda James has lived a traumatic life. One of the last images she saw before losing her sight was that of her parents' death. The nightmares of that time still haunt her every night.  Taken in at nineteen by her sister, Clary didn’t know there was going to be a price to pay, a price far greater than her blindness. It’s not until Blue walks into her life, she realises it’s possible to experience the joy of warmth. In her darkness, Blue will become her beacon, her guide. Little does she know that she’ll need to count on Blue more than she thought she would. 

She has to…if she wants to stay alive. 

Blue Skies is on the lookout for a woman. Always there to support his brothers, Talon and Griz, he’s not a stranger to the craziness of love or life. Nor is he a stranger to making it clear that comments surrounding his name are out of bounds. Despite the often effed-up situations his brothers find themselves in as a result of their women, he’s more than happy to settle down when he finds his missing piece. 

After three weeks of seeing a gorgeous redhead in a cafĂ©, he refuses to let the opportunity pass him by. Building a tentative relationship with Clary is no easy task; she’s damaged. It’s not until he discovers the truth behind her darkness that he willing lays claim to her. He is determined to protect her, no matter the cost. She is irrefutably his.

The Christmas Ship

I'm please to welcome Linda Andrews and her new book The Christmas Ship.

In 1917 when U.S. President Woodrow Wilson declared war on Germany, the entire nation went to war. Families didn't just send their sons and daughters overseas, they too were expected to make sacrifices. None other than Herbert Hoover (future president) was in charge of making certain the soldiers and sailors had enough food by making families conserve. His plan was simple—give up one thing per day of the week to help the war effort and bore his name, Hooverizing.

There were Wheatless Mondays (corn meal was substituted)
Meatless Tuesdays (beans and fish were substituted)
Porkless Saturdays (beans and fish were substituted)
Heatless days to conserve coal (needed to power the steamships carrying troops and supplies overseas)
Legal holidays every Monday during the winter to conserve coal
Industrial shutdowns to conserve coal.
And the introduction of Daylight Savings Time to allow work to be done during normal daylight hours.

Woman in large cities were sent to pick over rotted produce to save what could be saved and canned for troop use. These volunteers rescued millions of tons of produce and received extra rations for their families for their work. 

Land Armies were created in every available lot to grow produce and we saw the rise to the Victory Gardens usually associated with World War 2. Families sent jars of grease collected from their kitchens for the war effort. Every association banded together to create comfort bags and donate goods to relief efforts. 

The efforts were enough to turn the tide of a war that had been stalemated for years and bring an end to the suffering of peoples on both sides of the conflict. So as we enjoy our holiday this year, take a moment to be thankful for those whose sacrifices have been mostly forgotten and remember that when humanity stands united, anything is possible.

American businessman Jacob Kerrigan works behind enemy lines to help feed seven million starving Belgians and bring Christmas to the children. The Commission for Relief in Belgium asks only one thing of its delegates: remain neutral in a war-torn country.
Roselle Perrine works in soup kitchens and her family farm by day, and spies for the Belgian resistance at night. She uses her position in society to convince Jacob to stay in her chateau, hoping the relief delegate’s presence will cover her nocturnal activities.
But the Kaiser’s Army is watching.
When Roselle’s spying is discovered, will Jacob remain neutral or fight for love?

To be entered in a drawing to receive an electronic copy of The Christmas Ship please leave a comment with a tradition you continue that connects you with  your family's past.
