Yes, it’s now the second month of this year.  As I mentioned last month, it will be a busy one for me.  I have four books coming out in 2018!

Publication of the first is fast approaching.   That’s in March, and I have already received my author’s copies.  As always, it’s great fun to actually touch and thumb through and read the book that I started writing many months ago, saw the cover online much more recently, and am eager to actually get out there.

That book is Second Chance Soldier.  I’m starting to ramp up how I get the word out about it.  I’m very fond of everything I write, of course, but this one’s special because it will be my first in the K-9 Ranch miniseries for Harlequin Romantic Suspense.  I have written other HRS books and enjoyed them all, but because this one features dogs I’m particularly excited about it.  Plus, its sequel comes out later this year, A Chance to Heal.  And I hope there will be more.

Last month I mentioned the other two books I’ll have published this year.  You can be sure I’ll be talking about them more as 2018 progresses!

Warning. Today is more of a blurb than a blog. Short, to the point. Just something I wanted to share. I want to be happy. Doesn’t everyone? Heck, according to the Declaration of Independence—United States of America edition—one of our inalienable rights is the right to happiness. Or rather, the pursuit of happiness. You have… Read More
