Romance Writers Weekly ~ New Year's Resolutions ~ #LoveChatWrite



 This week, the question posed by Romance Writers Weekly is a two-parter: "Did you make a New Year's Resolution? Have you stuck to it so far?"

The answer to both is no. I make goals and plans for each new year. Last year's plans worked out fabulously, for the most part. This year, however, has gotten off to a bit of a rough start. I haven't actually started anything and my leftover task from last year--finishing a story that needs to be turned in at the end of the month--is similarly stalled as LIFE continues to get in the way. 

I have, however, bought a nifty new journal/planner to help keep me on track, along with some new pens and a set of colored pencils. Now, if I could only find the TIME to actually put things in motion.

Next, hop on over to Brenda Margriet's page to read about her resolutions. And be sure and check out her book, Secrets Under the Covers.

New year…new series!

Start the Silverberry Seduction Seasoned Romance Series for FREE with SECRETS UNDER THE COVERS.

Two long-time friends…one impulsive seduction…zero percent chance their lives will ever be the same again.

 The peace Helen Mansfield struggled to achieve after the death of her husband is threatened when she discovers a lump in her breast. Determined to keep the alarming news to herself until the biopsy results are revealed, she sets out to wring every drop of delight from her days. 

Nathan Spieth stood by his wife while she fought and ultimately lost her battle with cancer. Since then, he’s devoted his energy to rebuilding the career that he neglected during her final years, and all his hard work is about to pay off. ​

As neighbours and friends, Helen and Nathan’s lives have been woven together for more than twenty years. One impetuous, impassioned night might destroy everything they share—or prove to this fiercely independent woman and determinedly solitary man that love is always worth the risk.

Just Another Day

This FREE Valentine's Day collection is available through Bookfunnel–but for a limited time only. It includes the short story: Put a Ring Around the Rosie

February 14th is just another day...until it isn't.

They say timing is everything, and that certainly has always been the case where Alex and I are concerned. ​We were friends for a while, and then we weren’t. And when we reconnected with each other last month it was after a prolonged period of hurt feelings and miscommunication during which we barely spoke to each other at all. 


Now, our friendship’s caught fire, so to speak, but I feel like we’re both still recovering from that last, disconnected phase. Heaping a bunch of unrealistic expectations, or a need for chocolate hearts, plush toys, or rose colored anything on top of that seems like a little too much added pressure.
