Hola, from the Texas Hill Country. Jolene Navarro here. Just got in from my morning walk and ready to chat.
Sometimes we are in such a hurry to reach a goal, to get through today we miss the simple joys around us.
Worry and guilt. Anger and bitterness.
These are a few of the things that can steal life’s joy. We start to think if we get this or go there or if this person would only…..
At times finding joy in the every day can be a challenge. I believe it does take intentional thought and planning. Starting the day with a favorite verse. Sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee as the sun makes its appearance. Not a morning person? The sun set is a beautiful thing too.
A single wild flower brightly reaching for the sun.
In my July 17th/August 1st release, Texas Daddy, the heroine, Nikki Bergmann has a secret she has kept since she was seventeen. This secret comes with massive guilt. For over ten years, she has avoided her three sisters and father. Because of this, she has lost the simple joys of life.
The hero comes into her life through his daughter. I love watching a character develop and grow.
To live in our true essence instead of fear is a great gift.
On a side note, the digital form of Texas Daddy is on sale for 1.99. Not sure how long this will last. If you pre-order, it will be on your Nook, Kindle, any tablet or phone on Aug 1st. I think this is a pre-order sale and it will go back to 4.99 at the time of release. The print book is in stores now.
A SOLDIER’S SURPRISE FAMILY my fall 2017 release is also on sale for 1.99.
Reading brings me joy. I love a good pull at the ol’heart strings. A sweet romance that takes me away is a true pleasure. How do you bring joy into your life? A baby’s giggle or a moving song?
I have joined a group of authors that want to spread joy so, at the start of each week we post something positive. You can find them on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook at #upbeatauthors. Next week it is a positive quote. Do you have a go to quote that gets you through hard times?
If I use your quote, I’ll send you a print copy of Texas Daddy. (Or an ebook Aug 1st if you roll that way).
The Cowboy’s Second Chance
Being a devoted dad is former bull rider Adrian De La Cruz’s top priority. So when Mia suffers a rodeo injury and winds up recovering alongside Adrian’s first crush, Nikki Bergmann, he becomes even more protective of his daughter—and his heart. Nikki is back in Clear Water solely to recover, and he knows she has no intention of staying. But as the bond between Mia and Nikki grows, Adrian can’t help falling for her once again. Until Nikki’s long-buried secret comes to light, and Adrian must decide if he can forgive the past, or face a future without the woman he’s never been able to forget.
Thank you for stopping by. I look forward to hearing your ways of finding joy or a positive quote.
