Hope to see you all at my facebook party on the 5th. I enjoy getting to know my readers and feel this brings us closer together.
Over twenty years ago I started writing my first romance novel. That was Lord of the Blade – back then called Devon’s Desire. It was almost bought by Harlequin, but the editor left on maternity leave and with her went my chance to be published by this big, prestigious publishing house.
Nevertheless, when I started publishing my own books after losing my job five years ago, I started with Lord of the Blade. It was an experiment and I thought no one would buy a lone book from a virtually unknown author. But, to my surprise, it sold quite well and to date is one of my top three sellers!
I didn’t have social media or a mailing list or even a website for the first year of publishing on my own. Still, the readers somehow found me and bought my books. Thank you, all of you for all your support! I hadn’t written a word in ten years, and the five books I had traditionally published were virtually dead by now since it had been so long. So this was a scary, but exciting new career change for me.
Today, I am proud to say I am working on my 75th book and loving being my own boss. I control what I write and I make my own covers. Yes, this is a dream job for me, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Lord of the Blade has recently gone through professional editing, as well as gotten a new cover. And it is now available in audiobook form, narrated by the multi-talented UK narrator, Kevin E. Green. (Click on the audiobook photo to purchase or to listen to an excerpt of the narration on amazon. The audiobook is also available on itunes and audible.) The narration brings the story and the wonderful characters to life. Above you’ll see a movie poster for the book. Hopefully, someday that dream will come true. I would love to see my books made into movies.
You will notice a few other new covers in the series as well. Watch for the whole series to be in audiobook form, hopefully by the end of the year! The books are all available as paperbacks on amazon or Barnes and Noble or ebooks from amazon only. If you are a kindle unlimited member, you can read the entire series for free.
Lord of the Blade is a story about a man (Corbett Blake) who is out to find redemption since his father married the vicar’s daughter and has sullied the Blake family name. (See the prequelfor more on this.) Lord Corbett’s father had been stripped of his title before he died. But now Corbett has worked hard to regain the castle and lands that were lost. All he needs to satisfy the king and bring honor back to the family name is a noble wife. Devon is a girl who has been hidden away and raised at the monastery by the old midwife, Heartha, brought there by an old sorcerer right after she was born. Corbett finds her and brings her to his castle as his servant, and against all rules, he and Devon start to fall in love. But not everything is as it seems. And sometimes our dreams can come true if only we believe. Watch Lord Corbett’s raven closely, because there are some secrets amiss and you won’t want to overlook a clue.
So pick up your free copy of Lord of the Blade before the offer expires. And if you’d like to see the old covers, I haven’t had the chance to change them in the booktrailer yet. It is still a great trailer, so check it out as well as some of my other booktrailers by clicking HERE.
First, let me tell you about my brand new preorder, Finally Home for only 99 cents! This is a book I found in my archives that I had started years ago.

For those of you in the U.S., have a happy fourth of July. And if you’re interested in a simple but delicious treat for the holidays, try Echo’s Berry Trifle.

Hello and I hope you had a great Father’s Day weekend.
As you all know by now, I’ve been publishing my father’s poems into books as a thank you to him for all the things he’s done for me my entire life. He is always thinking of others and never himself so I thought it was time I did something special for him. He will be 89 this year, and having his poems published to share with all of you has been a thrill for him. I also thank you for all the reviews.

I wish everyone a good Memorial Day weekend. It is very hot and muggy in the Chicagoland area. While I like hot weather, this is much too soon. Update on my granddog, Banshee, is that she is still a handful, but she is getting better each day. She has overcome her fear of going up stairs, and has found a new job patrolling the yard for birds, squirrels, and today she even saw a stray fox in the driveway! She is so cute, I just have to show you the latest photo of her.
Since school will be out soon, I have decided to offer Teaching Philip – Book 8of my Tarnished Saints Series for FREE from May 27 – 31.

They are opposites and don’t get along. Think of this as an “Odd Couple.” Lots of laughs are in store when they find out they’ve been dating each other online and didn’t even know it.
