This week I received a review on Amazon for I Have People.
I am so glad I tried out this new author (new author to me). She built a believable storyline with a suspenseful plot. I liked the book so much that I had to go and get another of her books just to see if she could keep the magic going. I am a very satisfied customer.
Great review and it made me smile.
At the same time, it made me nervous.
So much pressure!
Can I keep the magic going?

I'm about to release my next book, I'm With You.
It's not necessarily a suspenseful book, although I did add a little suspense. After all, it's what readers expect from my books and I liked the slight mystery it added to the plot.
Some readers said they KNEW what was going to happen. Others said they were very worried it wasn't going to go the way they hoped. Others said they kept themselves from turning back to the prologue to check their facts.
Above all this book represents a forever reminder of my precious grandson, Jerad.
It was a book I felt a pressing need to write.
And now I feel as though my grandson will forever be remembered through the pages of this book.

That being said, I'm With You is, in the end, a romance novel. It just happens to include a Trisomy 18 story. It deals with baby loss grief, and this story-line propels the story forward.
So, can I keep the magic going?

I certainly hope so!
On another note, I've been super busy lately . . .
I'm With You is currently being formatted for ebook.
Lancaster House and The Middle Aisle are about to receive new covers. After each received a light edit, they have now been sent off to the ebook formatter as well.
Sierra just went through an intense edit and is now with my editor, just to be sure it is a grammatically clean read.
(The story hasn't changed at all.)
And suddenly I felt as though I didn't have anything to do. Everything was done and I'm now playing a waiting game.
And then . . . it came to me.
A new idea for my next book.
I can hardly wait to start writing it, as a matter of fact I'm about to burst if I don't get it on paper.
Maybe the magic isn't over yet.

Have a great Monday everyone!
