All About Firsts

Firsts....
 
Well to start, this is my first blog hop.  I'm excited to see what it's all about, and I hope it's fun for all of you as well.
 
But my really big first is that my book is published.
 
I'm not a newbie writer, I've been writing for years, getting better, winning contests...but I never had the right book in the right niche that needed to be filled at any of the publishing houses I contacted over the years. I received very nice letters....of thanks, "but we don't have a spot for you, or we have too many of this type of story." 
 
But I believed in me.
 
When it became clear to me that digital publishing was the wave of the future, I wanted to get on top of the wave and ride it all the way in, then get back up and do it all over again.
 
And here I am. 
 
 

First book out, filled with love, adventure, mystery, in the mountains of Colorado and the beaches of Hawaii. 

And did I mention love?





How perfect is this first book for Valentines Day or any day you need to curl up and fall in love all over again.  Just the way Cate and Jason did.


Dare To Believe....
 
I did.


And for fun, I created another first. A book trailer:


 
 Please Visit Me  I'd love to hear from you.  I always have lots going on at this blog, so sign up to a follower and I'll give away a book at the end of the hop to one of you who has!
