Candles for Surrender Series!


Candles for Surrender Series!


     OMG! I love, love, love the scent of this candle and the wax melts! Thank you to Book Scents for creating an unforgettable scent that perfectly matches what my characters smell in the novel. The owner worked with me until we got the scent just right and I received my package the other day. The large candle is $15.99 plus s/h. You can click their link and click shop, then request a special order for the Surrender Series candle in they type you'd like and she will ship it to you. I so wish I could create a scratch-n-sniff right here on the blog.
      Authors who read this can also work with the owner to create a candle of your own for one of your novels, series, or a character. Click over to her site and click Writer's Block to see her price packages.
      Readers, get into the contest below to win a small cup of the wax melt. I'll give away THREE of them!
      MORE GREAT NEWS!!  The other day I was notified that Never Surrender won a literary award. My publisher called to congratulate me and sent out a press release. I'm so honored to have won this. Thank you to the Marie M. Irvine Literary Excellence Award - WOW!!

Contest for 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!





     Wishing each of you a safe holiday! Let's celebrate America and what we stand for. Hug your family and friends and enjoy the time you spend with them. Life is precious and is taken for granted much too often. I pray for peace and happiness, yet there are those who refuse to let others be happy because they are not. May each of THEM be blessed with the happy fairy dust we sprinkle on them.

     I've got a contest for you over at my new blog on my website. Get your entries in and use the share buttons below so others can get into the fun, too. Click over and see what I'm giving away. I'm also getting the next newsletter ready so subscribe if you aren't already!

Let's Pray for Peace....

My Heart Hurts
 
I hope you join me in offering up prayers for Orlando and the violence taking place there, for those killed and injured at the Pulse Bar and those left behind who lost a child, friend or loved one. Let's also pray for the killing of a young singer taken before her time because of a crazed fan and his selfish act.
 
I don't understand the need for so much killing and it still continues throughout the world, not just here in the US. Texas is also dealing with another hostage situation because of obvious suicidal tendencies and those who want to hurt others because they hurt.
 
Our police force and other first responders need our prayers also, that they may continue to protect us and stay safe themselves. Their families worry daily about their safety against the crazy people. May they all be watched over and protected as they do their jobs and put their own lives on the line for us.
 
When will all this stop so we can come together and live in peace? We shouldn't be afraid to travel or attend events in our own cities for fear of being shot at, killed, taken hostage or help someone commit a crime they think is necessary. Our world needs peace and right now, I'm not sure we'll ever see that....
