|I see patience in your future|
This week I've got three different authors I'm highlighting on my site, women I've known for awhile now through blogging, who are all enjoying the publication of a new book.
It's not unusual to see someone celebrated for a week or two when they have a new release, to find their book cover on multiple blogs, and read guest posts and interviews with them. And I have to say I'm honestly very happy for these writers when I see them getting the attention they deserve after years of working hard toward their goal.
If I'm honest, though, I also wonder why the heck it's not me. I used to think I'd be there by now. I mean, I have a couple of novels I could pull out of the drawer, polish up, and self-publish, but I don't think that would be the smart thing to do. First, those novels aren't very good, and, second, I think I'm finally onto a project that is exactly what I've always wanted to write. I just have to learn to be patient and know that we're all on different schedules, and when the time is right it will happen. But somedays it would be nice if I could peer into that crystal ball and see the future, and know that it was going to happen. Sigh. Until then I am more than happy to cheer on my fellow writers who are already there.
Christa can mask the pain and hide the scars, but running from a birthright is impossible.
She’s tried to escape her grief by fleeing to a small town in Florida. Much to her frustration, the locals think they recognize her even though she's never been there before. To make things worse, a man named Jack spouts outrageous theories about her.
Both spur Christa to bolt, to start fresh yet again, but there’s something about Jack that intrigues her enough to stay. The only problem? Someone else wants her to leave, and they won’t stop until she’s dead.
Available for purchase here. Isn't that a gorgeous cover?
