Hello everyone. Fall is here, school is back in session, spider lilies are blooming and by and large the 100 plus degree days are behind us. Days are getting shorter, football fans are ready to cheer on their favorite teams, and I'm starting think about soups and gumbos simmering on the stove. This is the time of year where we think about home, family and thankfulness. Hope your September is lovely!September is also the month when the American Christian Fiction Writers Conference occurs. I'll be attending, as will my agent and editor so I'm looking forward not only to the great workshops but also the opportunity to visit with some wonderful friends and associates.
Also, as I write this I'm wrapping up work on the eighth book in my Texas Grooms series and starting to think about what comes next. I'm certainly loving spending so much time with the people of Turnabout and will hate to see the series end as eventually it must. Don't forget to take a look at the great guests I have lined up for my Spotlight Interviews.
- This month I'm welcoming the lovely Belle Calhoune into my spotlight. You can see her interview over on my AUTHOR VIP page!
And for my September giveaway, Belle has generously agreed to give away a copy of An Alaskan Wedding to two of my lucky newsletter subscribers.
- For the month of September, Erin Taylor Young, acquisitions editor for Redbud Press, will step into my Industry Spotlight. Be sure to check out her interview on my INDUSTRY VIP page.
And last but not least, here's my quote for the month.
Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another's skin, another's voice, another's soul.
~Joyce Carol Oates
