I’m going to try a new kind of giveaway. How would you like to see your name or the name of someone you know in one of my books? Well, if this sounds like fun, I happen to have two hurricanes in my upcoming book, The Key to Her Heart, that need names. So for this game, all you need to do is submit a name suggestion. It can be your name, the name of a loved one, or simply a name you like. At the end of the contest, I’ll choose two winning names, and the readers who submitted those names will each win a $5 Amazon gift card to enjoy now, plus a signed print copy of The Key to Her Heart when it’s released. Pretty simple, huh? So have fun and send me those names via the Rafflecopter widget below.

As promised in my last newsletter, here’s my rather lengthy update on my writing activities in 2017 (or lack thereof :-)). I’m sure you’re all eagerly waiting for me to publish a new book, and I swear I’m working on it. In all honesty, I wasn’t being a total slacker in the writing department last year. I just had some unexpected things come up, as well as some things that simply didn’t go as planned.
As you all know from my Bookaversary celebration this month, I published my third novel, Butterfly Serenade, in January of 2017. Normally, I try to do things at a steady but leisurely pace, because I have an anxiety disorder and my brain has a tendency to revolt if I put too much pressure on it. Although I managed to stay sane, I did push myself pretty hard in the months leading up to the release in order to meet my goal of getting it out by mid-January, which left me a little burned out. Even after that, I had a lot of new release marketing to take care of, so that was what I focused on for the next couple of months.
