A BIG THANK YOU TO MY READERS!
AND HEARTSTOPPER IS NOW AVAILABLE
As of mid June, the first book in my Miami Heat Series, HEARTSTOPPER, has been available on Kindle, Nook, Kobo and iBooks. But before I talk about my latest projects, I need to shout out a huge thank you to all my readers for the big boost in sales I had when I placed NIGHT WIND'S WOMAN on sale for .99 cents during June. I was thrilled by reader response. Please watch for news about more such sales in the future. Now, on to the latest news. I hope the sensational cover to the right will tempt you to read an excerpt from the book on the Upcoming page.. A hardened Miami homicide cop and a socially prominent cardiac surgeon make odd bedfellows, but they're thrown together to solve a bizarre series of murders. Lots of action, humor and romance. Give it a try and I think you'll enjoy it!
Readers have indicated that my story concept for a Cherokee mixed-blood hero should be my next historical romance. I've been busily at work researching and blocking out the plot. The story is set in 1870's Montana and Oklahoma. I'll give you a preview to read by year's end. A very vulnerable and lonely heroine whose wealthy parents reject her, Carolina Randolph is fascinated by Ross Chisholm, a hard-eyed gunman who her father hires as her bodyguard in a rough and tumbled gold-rush town. Caro learns that the half-breed has a great deal of loneliness and vulnerability of his own. I can't wait to get started to see how their love survives all the obstacles between them.
This has been the rainiest summer ever recorded in the lower Midwest. Lots of gray days, soaked flowers and shrubbery. Even the new carpet on the lower level of our bi-level house has to be dry-vacced every day. But considering the floods and droughts so many across the land are suffering, we cannot complain. To cheer everyone up, I've included a wonderful summer recipe for baked Vidalia onions, simple and oh so delicious. Check it out on my Recipe page. One of these days, Jim will fill you in on all the doings around the asylum here in a new newsletter.
In the meanwhile, have a good summer and hope for better weather. And, please keep on reading.
