Hmm . . . in the words of my friend Cindy Hickey . . . "Which one?" Since I arrived in the nursing home last July, I turned in two books in August, one in October, one in December, one in February, one in May, and I'm closing in on my June 1st deadline. It's been an extremely busy year, God's blessing in spite of my physical ailments. (For a look inside my internal battle this month, check out http://www.novelrocket.com/2013/05/why-did-i-quit-my-day-job.html, "Why did I quit my day job?"
I have a box in the right column called "What I'm writing," broken into the four category my friend Janice Thompson pointed out: proposing, writing, editing, marketing. If you ever wonder what is involved in being a full time writer, check it out.
May 2013 is a month to celebrate: I have three new releases. So I will give the pics, blurbs, and descriptions below. Check them out, and hopefully buy one.

Hidden Dreams starts a new historical romance series in Maple Notch, Vermont. It is my first book with the new owners of the Heartsong bookclub, Love Inspired.

Other highlights of the month: I had a "happily editor after" appointment with Emily Rodmell, editor of Love Inspired Historical, and she wants a complete proposal from me. Kathy Davis at Heartsong asked for a title change on the book I'm writing, so that has become Homefront Dreams. (Yes, it's book 3 in the series starting with Hidden Dreams.)
