New Release from White Rose Publishing!

Hello Friends!

Today's post was actually going to be my Saturday Spotlight but the wireless service was down at my friend's house in Wichita Falls, TX so without further ado let me share with you the latest release from White Rose Publishing..... Stealing Home by Veteran author, Rhonda Gibson as she kicks off the Bayfield Bachelor Club series with this precious tale of second chances. Don't miss book 1 of this great series featuring strong heroes--vowed bachelors who find themselves trying to figure a way for bachelors to marry!

Charisma Diner is busy with her floral business as well as caring for her young brother Joey since their parents' deaths. But when Joey befriends Will Lovelace at the baseball diamond, she realizes just how much she's been neglecting her little brother.

Will is part of Charisma's past. He may not recognize her, but she'll never forget the affect he had on her. Her heart fluttered for him during college, but he never even noticed her. Now Charisma doesn't want Will in her life. But how can she deny a lonely little boy a friendship that makes him happy...or the growing attraction between herself and Will?

Stealing Home is available now and while you're there, check out Rhonda's other titles!

Well Friends, not much else going on, been visiting & dancing in Ft. Worth and Wichita Falls this past weekend. Now I'm in Durant, OK visiting my friend Nona Cross and will be heading home to LA on Thursday (2/3).

Until later....take care & God Bless!

Saturday Spotlight - New Release from White Rose Publishing!

Good Morning Friends,

I've started writing a new book, am helping a couple of authors get their books off the ground and studying to take my state exam for my Life & Health Insurance license - other than that, not much going on in my world ( I know, that's enough right LOL!)

Oh and, got the green light the other day from my editor @ Five Star - The Visionary edits are complete and the book is now on its way to production - I'll keep you posted as more news is available.

Anyway, today's spotlight is the new release from White Rose Publishing and veteran author Kara Lynn Russell, author of the Orchard Hill series also from WRP.

Kara's new book, Snow Blind is a contemporary Christian gothic romance (nope that is NOT an oxymoron LOL!)

A woman scarred by the past...

Spurred by obligation, Robin Spencer drives through blizzard conditions to find the one person she never wanted to see again: Shale Anderson. When her trip turns deadly, Robin's only hope is to trust this man who broke her heart. But can she, when he's more like the dark, reclusive hero in the graphic novels he creates than the caring Shale she once knew?

A man in need of forgiveness...

Shale Andersen is poison. When the only woman he's ever loved shows upon his doorstep, he'll do anything to send her away. If he doesn't, he will end up ruining her life, or worse, killing her-just like every other woman who's ever gotten close to him.

A danger so complete, it threatens to consume them both...

Robin's only chance at happiness lies in acceptance. Shale's only chance at freedom lies in forgiveness. Can they weather the storm and begin their lives anew, or will someone with a thirst for revenge destroy their future?
Sounds like another winner from this prolific author! Snow Blind is available now for only $3.99 so get your copy today!

Well Friends, hope you enjoy this spotlight - stay tuned for more.

Until later....take care & be Blessed!

Saturday Spotlight - Mary Manners

Hello Friends and welcome once again to Saturday Spotlight. Today our guest is fellow White Rose author, Mary Manners with her book, Tender Mercies.

Mary lives in the beautiful foothills of East Tennessee with husband, Tim, daughter, Danni, and the cherished pets they've rescued from local animal shelters...dogs Abby and Molly, and cats, Lucky and Gus. 

She enjoys the outdoors, and especially love the cooler autumn weather. She loves cultivating flowers, taking long walks with her wonderful husband, and reading romance novels while lying in our hammock beneath century-old shade trees.

When Lexi Taylor resorts to hosting an online auction to raise money for her fledgling youth center, Thursday's Child, the last thing she expects is to be matched for a date with…

 …Cooper Jackson…hometown hero and former championship-winning University of Tennessee quarterback. Lured by the promise of a lucrative NFL career, he broke off their engagement without so much as a backward glance six years ago. Now he's come home to Knoxville to nurse an injured knee and his wounded pride--and he wants Lexi back.

A heartbreaking secret stands between them…and Lexi plans to keep it that way. But when Cooper's gentleness and renewed faith coax the secret to the surface, will forgiveness draw them close…or will their love be shattered forever?

Tender Mercies is available now from White Rose Publishing! 

Be sure and check out Mary's other WR titles and visit her website.

Well folks, hope you enjoyed this spotlight - stay tuned for more!

Until later...take care, be blessed & remember....Live fully~laugh often~love deeply~forgive freely & you will create magic wherever you go ~

New Year - New You

Good Morning Friends,

First I'd like to take a moment to apologize to my friend & fellow author Delia for misspelling her name on the Saturday Spotlight - it is LATHAM not Lantham - sorry Delia! Hope you enjoyed finding out about her new book despite my error.

With the dawn of every new year we make goals and resolutions to accomplish certain things in our life. One of the most popular is to take better care of ourselves.

As you all know I fell in love with the Silver Spur Guest Ranch when I attended The Wild Rose Press's "Saddle Up and Write" retreat April 29 - May 2, 2010 and returned there to work through the summer and fall last year.

Being in this lovely place with the wonderful staff has aided in healing of my grief in ways words can't describe and it is with this in mind I want to tell you about a new vision of ranch owner, Kay Walsmith.

A deeply spiritual woman, Kay desires to help every person find the best in themselves and their life, so with the help of folks of equal passion and desire, she is implementing Health & Wellness (Spiritual) retreats.

Beginning this month (Jan 21-23), there will be retreats held at different times throughout the year. These retreats will focus on rejuvenating the mind, body & spirit and each person will receive tips on continuing and maintaining their personal journey into wholeness.

Find out more about the dates/programs of these retreats by visiting the Silver Spur Guest Ranch Health and Wellness Retreat website.

Hope to see you there!

Saturday Spotlight - Delia Latham!

Good Morning Friends and welcome to the first Sat. Spotlight of 2011!

As with every new year, you'll see a change in this as I may not have spotlights every week - I will continue to feature authors and White Rose new releases will be spotlighted, so you will continue to find out about new books and authors.

Now, on to our featured author and book.....

DELIA LATHAM is a Christian wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. While she considers each of these roles important ones, she treasures most of all her role as a child of the King and an heir to the throne.

A former newspaper staff writer, Delia promised herself a novel for years, while raising her four children, working at various jobs and writing the occasional article, poem, or song. She fulfilled that promise when Vintage Romance Publishing released Goldeneyes in 2008. A Christian historical romance with a touch of the divine, Goldeneyes is set in the farm country of the author’s childhood, and therefore close to her heart. In 2010, White Rose Publishing released Yesterday’s Promise in electronic format, and Destiny’s Dream in print and e-format. A children’s book will be available early in 2011.

Delia grew up in Weedpatch, a tiny agricultural community near Bakersfield, in California’s San Joaquin Valley. She and her husband Johnny recently transplanted from that area to Okmulgee County, Oklahoma.

Find out more about Delia by visiting her Website, Blog or Facebook Reader Page or her online Newsletter!

Is a little respect too much to ask at a parent’s funeral?

Apparently it is for Destiny May. Her mother’s “going away party” is crashed by an unfamiliar and totally irreverent guest. Difficult to ignore, Clay Gallagher is built like a small mountain and far more vocal than is fitting for the occasion. When it turns out the annoying stranger is not even at the right funeral, Destiny demands retribution in the form of an escape from the day’s dreary proceedings.

From the beginning, their relationship has some kinks – starting with Destiny’s determination to found a Christian dating service in their conservative town of Castle Creek. A highly esteemed investment broker, Clay has little respect or patience for such a frivolous profession. But when Destiny is threatened by an anonymous caller who deeply resents her and what she does for a living, Clay makes it his business to keep the saucy redhead out of harm’s way.

Trouble is, spending time in her company weakens his defenses … and Cupid’s arrows are known to fly straight to the heart.

Destiny’s Dream is available at White Rose Publishing and Amazon in paperback and kindle!

Well friends, that's the first edition of Saturday Spotlight! Stay tuned for more.

Until later remember....When the going gets tough the tough get on their knees.
