May is a big month for me. During the first few years of writing, it seemed I was on a yearly publishing calendar for the month of May. My first book Holding on to Someday was released on May 8, my second book A Half Made Whole, released the next year on May 9, and my third book When I Found You released the following year on May 14. I finally changed my publishing pattern in my third year when I released two books in one year. That was certainly an accomplishment for me since I work full-time and have a busy schedule. While I would love to be the author that releases multiple books a year, I finally had to realize I’m not that girl. However, I keep reminding myself: baby steps.
It was never my intention to publish a book–ever. So the fact that I’ve published six books still kind of blows my mind. People who know me and my hectic schedule ask me all the time “how do you have time to write?” And my answer is always this: I have no idea. I just write when I can find the time. And that’s probably why I don’t publish more than two books a year.
To add to the May celebrations, I announced this month the first book in the new series I’ve started. The Thing About Falling in Love is book one in the It’s A Love Thing series.
Some would say I grew up with a silver spoon in my mouth, but I know the truth: I’ve worked hard for everything I have. However, love has always taken a back seat to my entrepreneurial pursuits.
From the moment I walked into her family’s restaurant, I knew she was…different. When fate brings us together once again through my new business endeavor, I’m certain God placed her in my path for a reason.
I never expected to fall in love this fast. The attraction we share is undeniable, but the matters of the heart are more important when it comes to the future I’m looking for.
Will she let me lead her down the path I know she’s destined for, or will she run in the opposite direction?
In addition to my May book birthdays, we celebrated Mother’s Day, my second son graduated from college last week, and my oldest son turns 22 at the end of the month. Whew!
To celebrate all May things happening in my life, I’d like to give away an ebook copy of each book having a birthday this month. All you need to do to enter is comment with your favorite way to celebrate special events. I’ll pick 3 winners to receive one ebook of Holding on to Someday, A Half Made Whole or When I Found You.
