Out the door at last

Whew – sorry for the silence, dear readers. I've been on crunch time getting my latest inspirational romance out the door to my agent. I rough-wrote the story during NaNoWriMo, but I was writing kinda blind because the proposal (synopsis + three chapters) had not yet been approved by my editor.

She finally got back to me in late November with just a few changes, so I finished writing the manuscript, then went back and re-wrote the parts where she had suggested changes. I just completed this task about five minutes ago, booted the manuscript out the door to my agent, and now I can take a breather at last ... just in time to work on a column and a magazine article, both due Friday, and neither of which has been started yet.

On the bright side, my book "The Amish Midwife's Bargain" hit the Publisher's Weekly bestseller list!

That was exciting news indeed! And much of that can be attributed to your faithful support. Thank you!


  1. I do like how you are using the new enclave as a continuing appearance in your new work. I still think the one about you vet was the best because I could see your life in it.

    1. Ha. You should read the manuscript I *just* sent in. Talk about art reflecting life!

  2. I almost read your book cover to cover but made myself go to sleep at 11pm instead. And eagerly finished the next day. Best story yet, imo!!
