MONDAY MUSINGS

I had a fun week with my grandson. He stayed with me while my daughter went on a business trip. 
But, saying goodbye yesterday was tough.



The house is so quiet and I miss him.

Back to work for me.

I was able to get a little done last week, but not much.
This week I will be working intensely on my latest book, GIRL OF MINE, as well as writing the synopsis for my next book, which is as yet untitled. I have a lot of notes and ideas, now I just need to put it all together.

Other book news:

SIERRA is now available as an audiobook, here. 



And . . . this week I received this wonderful review of FOR NICK!

on October 14, 2014
Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase
Such heart and soul in this book! Laughed, cried, got pissed, and most of all...I fell in love with the characters in this book! Fantastic storyline, great pace, such well written words....many kudos to Taylor Dean! My third book from this author in just a week!!!

The new cover of FOR NICK will be available very soon!



I love this new cover. The fact that she's underwater relates to the happenings on the inside of the book so well.

Would you like to win an autographed copy of one of my books? How about two autographed copies? Even better, you get to choose which two books you'd like to receive!
Hop on over to Christy's Cozy Corners and enter to win!

That's all the news for now!

Have a great Monday, everyone!

Exciting news!

This week I received an invitation to participate in a book series that will come out in 2016.
The series will start with a free novella. 
Each author will then write a single title novel that will somehow include the main character from the novella.
One book will be released a month in 2016.
The participating authors are: Karey White, Rachael Anderson, Heather Moore, Amy Harmon, Jaima Fixsen, Regina Sirois, Sheralyn Pratt, Janette Rallison, Julie Wright, Heidi Ashworth, and possibly Sarah Eden.
AND Taylor Dean!!
Wow! I'm in good company and I couldn't be more thrilled to be collaborating with these amazing authors.
More news later as this exciting project moves forward!
I'm still feeling a little in awe that I'm included in this lineup.
I'm trying to be professional, when secretly I'm jumping up and down, crying, and trembling with excitement!
But don't tell anyone. That's just between me and you!



This is the last day to grab a FREE copy of I HAVE PEOPLE.

Go here.

As of Saturday night (when I wrote this) I had 6642 downloads and the stats were: 


I'm extremely happy with the results and it's only Saturday. 
This is a wonderful way to introduce new readers to my books.

This week I have the opportunity to have my grandson with me while my daughter goes on a business trip.

I'm looking forward to my time with him.
He's a busy little guy, but he plays happily in the living room, allowing me to sit in there with him and get some work done on my laptop!
There's no better way to work!
I could spend hours just watching him.
I'm so lucky to have this little guy in my life.
Being a Grandma is the best!

Have a great Monday, everyone!

Of course, Gabriel wants to wait till Holly’s health is restored, much to Holly’s dismay. She feels perfectly fine. So what if she just woke up from an eight-month coma? So what if some of her memories are missing? She remembers Gabe and that’s all that matters, right?

MONDAY MUSINGS

The last two weeks have been fun, filled with lots of wonderful family time. 

We visited our daughter in Arizona. My other two daughters and their sons, as well as my mom and dad visited too. One of my sisters lives in Arizona too, so it was a bit of a family reunion. 


It was the first time in a long time that all three of my daughters were together.



And I enjoyed time with two of my grandsons.



We all live far from each other, so family time is precious.

Back to normal life now and I miss every minute we spent together.

However, we can all move forward with memories that make us smile and tug at our heartstrings.

And that's a good thing.

Book news:

Did you know that you can now rate a book on Amazon without leaving a review?
I only just discovered this. I check for any new reviews once a day (that's a lie--I check obsessively). I normally check the Kindle page. When I checked the paperback page, I found the option to see ALL of the ratings readers have left for my books. 
I'M WITH YOU only has 47 reviews, yet it actually has 104 ratings, 91 of which are five star.
SIERRA has 102 reviews, yet it actually has 283 ratings, 160 of which are five star.
Wow! What an amazing discovery! It sure left a smile on my face!
How did I not know this???

AND I HAVE PEOPLE is back from the ebook formatter. It will be published this week with its new cover! I added drop caps and fluerons to the ebook version and it turned out amazing!



Have a great Monday!!

WORK:

I've been working hard on my new novel, GIRL OF MINE, and it's coming along nicely.

I HAVE PEOPLE is now with the ebook formatter and the new and improved version along with a new front and back cover will be finished shortly! Besides a new cover, the new and improved version includes a few edits and a fancier ebook format.

The audiobook for SIERRA is officially complete and will be available soon. It has been fun to hear my book come to life, although time consuming to listen to and approve each chapter.

LIFE:

I get to have this cute little guy with me for the next two weeks!


So, if I'm not around much, this is why. I'm going to be BUSY!
Taking a break will be good for me. I'll be able to approach my new manuscript with fresh eyes.
Time to break free from the office and my computer, sit back, and enjoy life for awhile.
