Good Morning Friends and Welcome!
Well, hurricane season just keeps on giving. Misery that is. Although Tropical Storm Nicholas made landfall in SW TX, it's been steadily raining here since Monday night. Hopefully it'll clear up today though before we all float away.
There's not a whole lot going on in my life right now. My newsletter goes out tomorrow and I'm sharing a link to my website with slideshows and recaps of my trip to Alaska. Although I shared some here a couple of weeks ago, you'll find a lot more info on the website so, if you're not subscribed to the newsletter, do so now so you can check it out!
I shared these memes to social media a few weeks back hoping to encourage readers that I am writing (although I haven't written much on that particular story since).
Kyleigh's Cowboy is almost finished. First draft of it anyway. I only need to flesh out the last chapter and then, hopefully I can get it to an editor and up before the end of the year. I also have a couple more ideas floating around in my brain (not to mention a dozen or more sitting in files waiting to be developed). My goal for 2021 was to retire from insurance, wrap up projects that really have nothing or little to do with my writing and be organized and focused to WRITE more in 2022. Please pray that I can do all that.
Another item on my To Do lists was to get all of my books in audio. Well, I'm happy to say Lori's Redemption is in production with ACX. Which means it's been narrated and approved by me so once it goes through ACX production the audio book will be live! I had to find a new narrator because the lovely Terri England, who narrated the entire Tempered series & My Heart Weeps retired from narrating! Never fear though, Lia Frederick is wonderful too. I'm truly impressed at what she's done with Lori's Redemption and have contracted Tempered Truth & Keri's Christmas Wish - both of which should be done and out before Christmas. I'll keep you posted on that.
Guess that's about all for now friends. Thank you for stopping by. Be sure and check back weekly for Wednesday Words with Friends and Saturday Spotlight.
Until next time take care and God Bless.

It's starting to feel like Fall here in SWLA. For today anyway LOL! Other than the fact I've contracted with my narrator for Keri's Christmas Wish to come out (hopefully) Nov/Dec, not much news since Wednesday so I'm going to introduce you to a brand new-to-our-blog author, Jeny Heckman with her spicy paranormal romance book, Dee's Cornucopia.
A no-nonsense spark plug, Dee keeps everyone around her hopping. When she meets fellow field hand, Arthur Taylor, her colorful world becomes even brighter when she makes him an offer he can't turn down.
However, this story of a bright explosion of color in a monochromatic world isn't what you might imagine, as Dee's life doesn't exactly turn out like she thinks it will.
This novella is the life story of Dee Taylor, the feisty and eccentric grandmother of Finn in the Heaven & Earth series. Her bright colorful muumuus and big floppy hat are her trademarks, and this story will tell you how it all began. She also has this little ability to see future developments. Oh, and commune with the greatest Greek family in history, but she just doesn't know it... yet.
Excerpt: Furious, Demeter waved a hand to soften the noise of the door before it reached anyone’s ears and settled the house with her other hand. She gazed up at the bright light in the sky.
“You must deal with this blight, niece,” Themis’ voice echoed in her mind. “The last drop of blood is nigh upon us. This will be our last chance.”
Demeter’s face fell at the all-knowing Oracle. “She has been a loyal and faithful servant, perhaps…”
“Demeter, we have all risked and many more sacrifices are yet to come. Catherine is not Persephone. We must allow the mortals to gain their strength for no one is yet in place beside Deidre and even she will not be ready until her hair turns white and her skin wrinkles. Many years in their time. Time for us to prepared, for my father seeks revenge.”
Demeter understood what was not said. If they didn’t win this time, no hope remained.
