What a glorious thing to be able to label ourselves with the title most dreamed for. To wish, and hope, and work, work, work toward that which we want most. Today, as I reveal my beautiful new website (thanks Andy, my under-paid but much appreciated brother!), I can’t help but think of all choices that led me to where I am today, on the cusp of debuting my very first novel, surrounded by supportive friends, family, acquaintances, and even strangers. What a dream job!
A year ago this week, I was waiting with baited breath for the Golden Heart finalist announcements, wondering if my life was about to change. Boy was it ever! This year has been one of the very best in existence, and I am forever grateful and thankful to all those who offered help, support and well-wishes.
In thanks and appreciation for all of you lovely people who have come to join me as I debut the new website, I’m thrilled to offer up a special treat: One lucky commenter will win an Advanced Reader Copy of my debut novel, MORE THAN A STRANGER! Win it way before you can buy it, as the book will release officially June 5th :) Simply leave a comment between now and Wednesday night. The winner will be chosen at random and announced at 9pm EST on March 21 here in the comments section. Good luck!
S0 tell me: what would be your dream job?
PS - Have a look around at the new digs! Excerpts from both MORE THAN A STRANGER and A TASTE FOR SCANDAL can be found by clicking the "Books" link on the menu to the left. Enjoy!
