The Human Condition and Sisterhood

There’s something to be said about a sense of belonging, whether it’s with your loving partner, or a group of ladies with like-minded interests, who’re the best friends ever. So, I’ll try to make this post short and sweet.

Regarding The Authors’ Billboard and Our Sisterhood: We applaud each other’s triumphs (and there are many), offer heartfelt comfort and empathy when we’re experiencing life’s downward slides or chaos and, as a community, we all have each other’s backs.

About Social Media: I’ve met some darn fine people over the course of my journey through social media, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t say so. My dearest hope is I will have the honor of meeting all of you individually someday. So, let’s start planning!

About the human condition, in particularly my man: I am That Person who was glad to see 2018 depart. I’d hoped 2019 would bring less sorrow and more joy for my hubby, but it doesn’t look too promising. Even so, I’m extremely grateful how my sisterhood has supported my man and me during these last trying months.

So! What DOES Zippity-Doo-Dah really look like? Here’s a sample of the awesome sets The Authors’ Billboard has created for our fans, with many more to come this year. It would take me way too long to list them all, so please enjoy a titillating taste of what’s in store for you.

My story for this anthology is called DRIFTING INTO LOVE: The Triplets Trilogy, and the first of a new three story set I’m working on for other anthologies, and also available as stand alones.

What’s it about?

After a precocious pooch wanders into Zoey’s yard during a blizzard, she discovers an unconscious forest ranger hurt in a snowmobile accident. After a successful struggle back to her cabin, the two are stranded with no cell service, and only each other’s company to pass the time until help arrives.
Will placing trust in the handsome stranger provide the solace Zoey seeks once her secrets are revealed? Does confronting the past together enable the young woman to reconnect with the family she hasn’t seen in a decade?

As for me, marking my personal goals for 2019 after the Holidays were lost in the zero zone – “My muse took a hike, it was riding its bike – I thought it left town, hadn’t felt it around.”

Then, after chatting it up with the other ladies in our group, I felt rejuvenated. Long story short, there’s something to be said for being associated with a collection of caring, enthusiastic ladies with similar aspirations in mind. SUffice to say, I am blessed!

Speaking of hearts, please keep in mind we have several romance anthologies available containing full length books and novellas from NY Times and USA TODAY Bestselling authors for Valentine’s Day!

Lately, I’ve been questioning my ability as a writer and it’s left me feeling lost and depressed.

Do you ever doubt yourself?

I think it began with the big change in our lives this summer. As many of you know, my daughter and grandson have moved over six thousand km away so she can continue with her dream to become a marine biologist.

While I’m incredibly proud of her, it’s also left a big gap in my days. I’m used to being there for my grandson, often picking him up for lacrosse or hockey or swimming practice.

He’s a key part of our lives and we are lost without him.

I’m empty inside and find it increasingly hard to put words on the page. I hope this is a short term thing, I mean it’s not like I can’t text or FaceTime him whenever I want. But, it’s not the same, either.

I’ve been working on a holiday novella for our Love, Christmas 2 collection set around the theme of our favorite holiday movies. Mine is Mistletoe Inn, taken from the Hallmark® movie, The Mistletoe Inn.

Here’s a short preview

 

For my story I’ve adapted the inn as more of a bed and breakfast with my hero as a scarred, bitter loner that the heroine, Molly McCarty, falls in love with.

 

MistletoecoverLG

 

Molly McCarty has picked up roots and traveled across the country to run a bed and breakfast with a sweet-sounding old lady. Imagine her surprise when her partner turns out to be a surly, way-to-handsome recluse. It’s too late to back out now, she’ll have to mend his lonely heart in time for the holidays.

 

I’m enjoying this heartwarming tale, but it’s also making me realize Christmas won’t be the same this year.

What do you do to get rid of the blues?
