As I mentioned in earlier blog posts, 2019 is going to be a big PIVOT year for me and I couldn’t be any more excited. The last two years I’ve felt rather like I’ve been hiding under my bed, afraid to stick my head out and see what is happening in the world. Chicken Little in the worst way.
So I’ve decided to change my attitude this year, to trust God in faith and step forward with determination and confidence.
One of the ways I’m going to do this (in addition to continuing to traditionally publish books with Harlequin Love Inspired and self-publish some of my own) is to write a couple of books for a new small press, Sweet Promise Press.
The first book is coming out in March as part of the Mommy’s Little Matchmakers series of Romantic Comedies. I don’t know that I’m particularly funny in real life, but my characters regularly crack me up, sometimes to the point where I’m quite literally laughing out loud. Yes—I’m guessing that looks pretty odd from a bystander’s viewpoint when I suddenly burst out laughing as I type.
Here’s what the series is about:
This six-book, Sweet Romantic Comedy series features single mothers and their precocious children who take it upon their little selves to help their mommy find love. Just like these unsuspecting bachelors and devoted moms, you won’t be able to help falling for these kids’ creative capers, amusing antics, and hilarious hijinks.
Sounds fantastic, right? I’m so excited to be a part of this launch series. And as it happens, I finally caught the first glimpse of my cover this week. I can’t say how excited I was to see the talented cover artist Mallory Rock used the exact picture I wanted of my widowed heroine Ashley and the matchmaker—her wheelchair-bound eight-year-old daughter Gwennie.
When they bring their new dalmatian puppy in to be seen by shy veterinarian Dr. Luke Bryant, Gwennie meets Dr. Luke’s receptionist mother and the two immediately take to one another, collaborating to make Ashley and Luke aware of the attraction they both adamantly refuse to acknowledge. It will take an old woman, a mischievous little girl and a rambunctious puppy or two to get Ashley to acknowledge what Gwennie has known all along—Mommy Loves the Doggy Doctor!
