Crazy Busy Week Prior to Vacation

This has been such an incredibly busy week, writing-wise:


All of the Jewel books started the week in the top 100 Christian romances on Amazon.


I had a feature in InD’tale Magazine for Hallee the Homemaker and a bread recipe for my upcoming cookbook, The Walking Bread.

I had a feature interview in Book Fun Magazine, which had a lot of Hallee the Homemaker focus in the questions.


I was the featured interview on The Christian Authors Show talking about my upcoming release, A Melody for James.

I found out that Emerald Fire is a finalist for RONE Award Inspirational Novel of the Year!

I’ve been writing recipes and discussion questions for readers’ guides, and working with my cover artist to redo and rebrand my covers.

I’ve had a lot going on away from the computer, too.

rose garden

I built a rose garden in my front yard.  My vegetable garden is in the state where it requires almost daily care with new growth, weeding, and all of the things that come with a garden.

AND — EXCITING!! 0 For the first time in a LONG time, our family is going on a family vacation that has NOTHING to do with extended  family, friends, or the military.  We leave Thursday evening and are headed down to Louisiana, and will split our time between New Orleans and Gulfport, Mississippi.  I am SO ready for a break, for relaxation, for family time.

The day we return is the publication date for A Melody for James (stay tuned for purchase links!), and the garden will need some serious care after a week’s absence.  Everything will get crazy busy again.  For today, though, while I’m insanely trying to prepare my house for our house sitter, catch up on laundry so that I can pack, and seriously weed my garden so that nothing dies in our absence, I’m just imagining how wonderful it will be to kick back at the pool in our resort or sip coffee at Cafe Dumond.

The next post you get from me will be the announcement of the book sale!

Have a WONDERFUL week — and don’t forget to plan to spoil your husbands and dads for Father’s Day!
