Lindi here. I hope everyone has had an amazing week and, can we believe it, the month is almost over! I hope your October was great. I’m not sure where mine went, but, it did include a lot of special days. But first, reading recap. Okay, so my non-fiction book was one I had to read for a seminary certificate. It was really good. Delighting in the Trinity by Michael Reeves. Excellent read. I’m now reading Think and Eat Yourself Smart by Caroline Leaf. I haven’t actually started it yet, but I’m about to. I love reading books on nutrition. This is a new love. Not one I’ve ever had before. My fiction reading has been slack this month. I did buy a few books at a conference I attended, though.
So last month I talked about new things going on.
And yes, new things are going on.
I know I’ve shared posts before about my Single Dad Next Door series. Well, I’ve finally put them in one collection, and am super-excited to show you this cover! Single Dad Next Door series.
I’m trying to create a small-town feel with the cover and the Devon Park reference on the cover. The four book in this series are connected only by the town and the fact that the heroines in the story all live next door to single dads. Well, one heroine moved to the town because her best friend moved there, so there’s that connection as well. I’m continuing the Devon Park theme next year with a Main Street series, highlighting the owners or employees of the business I’ve mentioned in the Single Dad Next Door series. I also have story ideas for a holiday series if readers love Devon Park.
I know a lot of the gals here on the Inspy blog write series novels and novellas. They really are a great way to create community within the pages of the book and with readers. When readers find a town and a cast of characters they can bond with, it makes reading fun. And it’s fun talking stories and story towns with other readers.
While those novellas are on the calendar for 2018, I’ve got a new series titled Sweetly Southern, that the first book came out in April of this year.
Sweet Love of Mine is my NY chef story where my hero looses his passion for food. My heroine needs food for the very first event her new business is planning. It’s a sweet novel, and well, her best friend, Scarlett shows up and I now have to tell her story. And Scarlett has a twin sister named Savannah who gets book 3.
I’m working on Beautiful Heart of His as we speak. I don’t have a definite release date right now, but it will be in the near future. This is Scarlett and Mason’s story and it is proving to be a lot of fun!
It feels good to be able to share the writing journey here! I love hearing from readers, also, what they love to read. So in the comments section, can you share one or two series that you have read, or maybe have read a couple of books and you can’t wait to get back to the rest of the series? Thanks in advance for sharing that info!
