Hi everyone! This week it’s my turn to host Sunday Edition. Valerie Comer here, all excited about spring flowers.
Did March come in like a lion or a lamb out your way? If “lion” means a week of slushy, messy snow, that’s what we got here in southeastern BC, Canada. It couldn’t decide if it was going to snow or rain in the valleys, but the mountain passes got heavy snowfalls with accompanying avalanches. Now, however, our snow is gone and it’s all about gentle rain. Good for the soil…I guess.
Snowdrops are the first flowers to poke through every spring, often before the snow has melted. Sometimes other things grow among the snowdrops. ;)
And then come the crocuses, and soon the daffodils and tulips and, before you know it, the grass is green, the trees are leafing out, and the whole world seems alive again. Ah…..spring…..
We’ve had a great week with some fun posts here at Inspy Romance! If you’ve missed some, you can use the big arrows on the edge of the page to leaf back through them.
On Monday, Jennifer Slattery posted From Life to the Page — Missional Romance and gave kudos to her real life romance.
On Tuesday, Hallee Bridgeman got us up to speed on Being the Light at a secular romance convention. Great stuff!
On Wednesday, Carla Laureano blogged about Putting Real Life Romance on the Page. Sounds like her hubby is quite the hero (are you sensing a theme from these romance authors?)
On Thursday, Lynette Sowell claimed But I’m Not an Amish Widower! Really, Lynette? What was your first clue? Okay, all kidding aside, read how Lynette’s character Jacob Miller formed for her.
On Friday, Kimberly Rose Johnson blogged about Dark Tide, a romantic suspense by Susan Sleeman.
On Saturday, I (Valerie Comer) chatted about The Romance Heroine: Your BFF. I’m also giving away an e-copy of Raspberries and Vinegar, and you’ve got a few more days to enter. The winner will be announced next Sunday.
Coming up this week, Annalisa Daughety, Ginger Solomon, Pepper Basham, Lisa Jordan, Merrillee Whren, and Elizabeth Maddrey. I’m sure they all have interesting tales to tell, so join us!
