Christmas After July + Forged by Sacrifice

forged by sacrifice coming soon

Hello all my lovelies,

So, I had these amazing plans to do a Christmas in July for my newsletter subscribers and then life happened. I’m a little late and thus calling it: “Christmas AFTER July,” and it starts tomorrow!!! If you haven’t subscribed, you’ll be missing out on the chance to enter and win one of these books.

What else is new in my world? Well, Forged by Sacrifice is out with beta readers and getting ready for line edits. I may have put a little teaser in my newsletter, too. See all the lovely things your missing out on?

I’m thinking, tentatively, that Forged will be available in October, and I’m hoping to have the cover for you this month. Fingers crossed that Megan at Designed with Grace and I can make that happen. Also, the winner for the Forged by Sacrifice TBR $25 eCard Giveaway will be announced on my Facebook author page tomorrow (Aug. 1, 2019), maybe “like” me there to find out who it is and enter by the end of the day to have a chance at winning?

If you’ve read my books, you know that they always have music tied to the chapters. I’ve got thirty-one songs for Forged as we speak. The Spotify playlist only has the first three songs at the moment because I’m being an annoying brat and drawing out the suspense. If you want to follow it, I’ll be randomly adding more songs.

BTW, in my real word, I’m back to the teaching job. Summer is over (insert sound of a little kid whining because that’s what I sound like). It’s crazy, but I’ll have little first graders swarming my world as of Tuesday. THIS Tuesday! As in August 6th! I’ve been in my classroom for a week and a half because I had to move rooms and craziness ensued. Thank goodness for the most amazing husband ever, my parents, and some of my beautiful teacher friends who made this happen for me in the midst of all my health issues (I’m doing good, but…again…life happened).

If you have kiddos, when do they start back to school? Any of you in college and waiting for the end of the month when you have to hit the books? Let me know what craziness is happening in your life. I need to feel like I’m not alone here people.

Okay, just a couple more reminders, and then I’ll disappear on you.


There’s another Amazon eCard giveaway that is up and running with 25 romance authors (including me). You just have to follow and enter for a chance to win one of two $125 gift cards.
