End of February Greetings & Readings

Let’s Go, 2020!

It’s hard to believe we’re only just now reaching the end of February. I don’t know about you, but so far, 2020 has felt like it’s been the loooongest year! In any case, I hope this year is treating you well. If you have a challenge or two like my family and I have had (thankfully, all surmountable), I hope that you’re keeping your head up and continuing that onward march!

Keep on Reading

Thanks to all of you for downloading my free short story Playing Cupid! It’s so exciting to see people from all around the world take a glimpse into Bailey & Luc’s special moment on Valentine’s Day. If you haven’t had a chance to read it, download it now. It’s a quick read at a little over 3,500 words.

Love Games is a longer story, but also fast-paced. Marisol & Dante have great chemistry, and surprisingly, the two have a lot more uncommon than Mari initially believes. She loves challenging him, and Dante loves meeting those challenges and surpassing Mari’s expectations. Love Games is available wherever you get your ebooks, and it’s on sale until the end of the month!

I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m working on my next Holiday Heartbeats Christmas story. I’m in the process of looking for Advance Readers, so if you’re interested, contact me and I’ll put you on the list.

There are about 6 reasons why I’m looking forward to the month of March; one of them is because my umpteenth wedding anniversary takes place! Another one is because Luck of the Irish finally gets its holiday moment in the sun. I’ll share more about this love triangle (yikes!) in a later post.

Until then, I hope to post more about Love and Life next month.

Sending Love & Light,

Motivated Monday: Never Fear the Light

Wishing you all the very best & as usual, I’m

Thank You to All of Our Veterans

We See You

Today is Veterans Day here in the United States, and I’m happy to be one of many extending my thanks to those who have served. I want to use this opportunity to share a link to Charity Navigator.org that’s devoted to helping our veterans and their families: Highly-Rated Military and Veterans Organizations. This is simply a reminder that we can help in many ways, both nationally and locally.  A thank you to our veterans is great, but getting them food, a place to stay, and consistent medical attention is even better.
