Paul Richmond is a bit of a genius, isn’t he? I think it’s sweet, and rather perfect for the anthology as a whole. That’s the cover of Heartwarming. Release is just two weeks away, people. 13 days actually. If you’ve already bought the whole anthology, then the first one will arrive in your inbox on Sunday, December 1st. If you just want to buy individual titles, they’ll all be available for purchase on that day as well. It’s a fantastic mix of stories. You can purchase the whole thing here.
Jackson Bennett and Ryan Hennigan met and fell in love while Ryan worked on Jack’s family’s Christmas tree farm. Back then, Jack broke his own heart by convincing Ryan to leave and pursue his future. Ryan went, but only after they made a pact to reunite after Ryan graduated from college. Now, five years later, it’s time, but Jack is convinced Ryan won’t show—and when he does, Jack is certain Ryan can’t possibly want to stay. Ryan, however, has no intention of being anywhere other than in Jack’s arms. But he faces a hurdle he never expected: proving to Jack they can have each other without having to sacrifice their dreams.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
In other news, I received the first edit on my next release. It’s always a bit of a nerve wracking experience. Now, this is only my second time on the merry-go-round, and I like to think I learned a little from my first trip. So that part’s a bit easier. But even though it makes me nervous, I also sort of love it. Seeing the changes needing to be made and really thinking about what the story is, making it say exactly what I want it to say to convey the story as it should be, is kind of an awesome process. I’m working on it now and hopefully will be done tonight.
In another couple of days, I’ll be taking another stab at my WIP, tentatively titled Postcards. That one is going to be a big mess to sort out. But I like to think I’m up to the challenge. I hope anyway. At the very least, it’s another step on my journey to becoming a better writer. I certainly want to keep improving. It’s the only way I’ll be able to share the stories in my head with the world.
