Hello Dear Reader!

THE home improvement store is my new best friend. Inside, it smells like progress.

I'M stripping old wallpaper from the walls of another bedroom this month in between my writing sprints for the new book. Our house was built in the early 1900s so there is a lot of wallpaper (and horsehair mixed in with the plaster once you take off the last layer!). The bedroom I'm working on has already been redone once since we moved here 27 years ago but it needs a facelift. I've decided to ignore the cracks snaking up and down the plaster walls this time and just paint over them instead of papering. My recent trip to Menards cost me thirty minutes looking at the bajillion paint samples and another thirty shopping for brushes, rollers, paint trays, wallpaper stripper, a wallpaper stripper tool (can't remember the technical term but that's the gist of it), and replacement blades. No wonder I haven't tackled these walls in so many years.


IN bookish news, two books in the Hearts in Hendricks series are on sale this week. LOVE LIKE WATER (#1) is free until Sunday, and LOVE LIKE FIRE (#2) is $0.99. It's the perfect time to grab them if you haven't started the series. Go to the series page to read more about it and take advantage of this special deal.

ALSO, this Friday I'll be posting on my Facebook page as part of the 17 Days of Sweet Romance for the anthology I contributed to in December AND sharing a yummy recipe that inspired my short story, "French Toast with a Side of Love." I'll have some special prizes to give away too so if you don't follow my page, now might be the time (link in the Where to Find Me section below).

IF you'd like to hear more frequently about what I'm working on, help me name book characters, get advance notice on sales and other cool bookish events, consider joining my Facebook Reader's Group. It's an up-close and personal place to be if you want to hear about the fun and sometimes weird inner workings of one writer's life (me!) and like to hang out with other book-loving friends. I hope you'll join us!

UNTIL next time and Happy Reading!
