Back in my December InspyRomance post I described a whole new approach for writing and releasing my new series. Instead of writing a book and releasing it, I’d write the entire series (or close to it) and then use a Rapid Release approach. Starting with my birthday June 7, I’ll be releasing one book on the seventh of the month for five months!
So, in retrospect, how’s this new process going, you may ask? I have to say I’m really enjoying it! Here’s a few reasons why:
I’m spending more time with the common characters across the series so I don’t have to get “reacquainted” with them between books.
The completed books have more time to sit and season before I go back and edit them. It’s so difficult to edit a book when you only finished writing it a week ago! Often I find myself asking while reading it over, “Didn’t I just say this? Or am I remembering it from when I originally wrote it two weeks ago?”
The excitement and anticipation builds as I’m writing and preparing the books. I’m excited about what I’m doing, and I hope that passes on to my readers!
So, with no further ado, I’d like to introduce you to The Matchmaking Moms of Oceanview Church! They are all on preorder now so take a look at this series and if they appeal to you, go ahead and preorder to your Kindle! Once released they will be on Kindle Unlimited.
Moms go the distance!
A team of mothers determined to covertly jumpstart the stalled love lives of their adult children. A light-hearted, faith-filled, fun series that will make you smile and warm your heart.
Dahlia, Lily and Rose attend a Bible Study at Oceanview Church. As an introductory exercise, the leader encourages them to dig deep and discover one thing they have in common. After sharing, they discover one interesting fact: they all have adult children who, for various reasons, are striking out in the love department. So, the ladies form a covert team of matchmakers and take matters into their own hands. Of course, their efforts have to be secretive because their kids would never go for it if they knew.
Will the moms be successful finding matches for Winston the Loner, Isabelle the Workaholic and Micah the Playboy, while remaining in the shadows?
The Matchmaking Moms are in for a tough job finding a romantic match for Lily’s son Winston. Gun-shy from love due to past rejections, he’s built a life around his job, his dog and his online video game prowess. He’s perfectly happy, thank you very much. Except Lily knows his life will be better when the moms find a perfect match for him.
Rose is the matchmaker for the job, finding Tina, a fellow dog lover. Will the two of them connect, and if they do, will they be able to get past Winston’s solitary ways, and Tina’s need for control?
A successful match under their belt, the Matchmaking Moms now set their sights on Rose’s daughter, Isabelle. An accomplished Public Relations executive, Isabelle decides to combine her passion for entertaining with her corporate know-how and create her own business. A talented chef, she sets up a company offering pop-up dinners, lifestyle advice and traveling chef services. The last thing she has time for at this busy juncture is finding a man.
Knowing she’ll need help setting up the business, Matchmaker Dahlia sends over a parade of trained professionals, hoping one will be that special someone. But the question is, will Isabelle realize she’s been looking for the wrong type of man all along, and finally recognize the attributes of Zach the photographer?
The Matchmaking Moms face their biggest challenge yet. Dahlia’s son Micah is a high-powered agent in the entertainment industry. Red carpet appearances are a common part of his job and he always has a beautiful woman on his arm. However, he’s never seen anyone as a forever partner. How will the Matchmaking Moms handle that one?
Micah learns the basics of an equal relationship from single mom Maria. Is he finally ready to give up the playboy life and commit his heart to one woman?
Dahlia, Lily and Rose celebrate the successful matchmaking of their three adult children. Through a lot of hard work, many extraordinary measures and blessings from God, all three of them are happily in love. The Matchmaking Moms decide to throw a Christmas party to reveal their secret efforts to all six.
But is it possible that while the Matchmaking Moms were covertly arranging love for their children, they weren’t quite as covert as they thought? Did the matches turn the tables and actually find love for one of the matchmakers?
Now, I’d love your input! What do you think of this series? Do you like matchmaker stories? Do you like the premise? The covers? Thank you for your early feedback!
