New Goodreads Giveaway: ONE SWEET DAY in PAPERBACK!

Now in paperback--so that you can read it on the beach or by the pool this summer, or give it as a gift, or buy it to pass on to your friends--is my newest novel, ONE SWEET DAY. And to get the word out, I'm giving away 3 copies on Goodreads! Starting tonight until February 21, you can click on the link above to enter. Each copy will be personally autographed for its winner. So good luck, readers!

And before I forget, I've been at work on developing a new Christian romance series. More info will follow, but as it stands right now, it looks like this will be a 3-book series.

For now, enjoy ONE SWEET DAY!

Pictorial: A Walk in Winter

"The only friend to walk with is one who so exactly shares your taste for each mood of the countryside, that a glance, a halt, or at most a nudge, is enough to assure us that the pleasure is shared." - C.S. Lewis

It just seemed right, with the weather more agreeable on this Sunday afternoon, to include a pictorial of walking in winter. Of course, that would be a mild North Carolina winter! And that friend who shared the walk with me is my best friend of over thirty years, my husband Bill.

Soundtrack for ONE SWEET DAY

It's that time again! Time when I give the playlist, or as I like to call it, the "soundtrack" for my book, which in this case is my newest release, ONE SWEET DAY. These are all songs that are playing somewhere or characters are listening to them within the story.

Incidentally, there are no less than 3 Christmas songs in this playlist. ONE SWEET DAY isn't a Christmas story, though there is a section during the 40-year span where the reader is visiting with some of the characters for a Montana ranch Christmas, and that's when these songs are played.

The two Paul McCartney & Wings songs are a tribute to my mom. Mami LOVED Paul McCartney & Wings! Both songs also just had the right feel for the section in which they appear.

And "Sweet Beulah Land" was a song I'd never heard before until a friend who'd been very sick mentioned how much she loved it. My friend, Mary Ann, has since gone to be with the Lord. This song appearing in the book is a little tribute to her.

You can find all these songs on YouTube & they're all great. Enjoy!

"I Love Music"..........The O'Jays
"Silly Love Songs"..........Paul McCartney & Wings
"Maybe I'm Amazed"..........Paul McCartney & Wings
"Beyond the Sunset"..........B.J. Thomas
"The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power"..........Andrae Crouch
"Heard it in a Love Song"..........The Marshall Tucker Band
"Runaway Train"...........Soul Asylum
"Sail On"..........The Imperials
"I Wish You Love"..........Sam Cooke
"Merry Christmas, Baby"..........Elvis Presley
"Holly, Jolly Christmas"..........Burl Ives
"Jingle Bell Rock"..........Bobby Helms
"Sweet Beulah Land"..........Carroll Roberson
