RIP Robin Williams

We grieve the loss of Robin Williams. He will continue to make movie night with the kids full of laughter for many generations to come. His wise words will survive the test of time. If Robin could say one last thing, I think he'd say...

PLEASE don't make my LIFE all about my DEATH.

If you are battling any kind of addiction and/or depression, grab hold of the hand being offered you. You don't have to go it alone.

5 Star Review & WINNER

 Wolf's Reading Den gives Angels in Red * 5 Stars *
                                     Sally says;
This is a classic romance filled with believable characters, fantastic dogs, and a bit of a twist which will keep you turning pages. I like how the love scenes are subtle and romantic instead of hot and graphic. I believe this style flows better with the overall feel of the story. I would recommend it to anyone who likes romance novels.
Stop in and read some interesting facts about how I came to be a published author. Leave a comment to be included in a draw for  a signed, print copy of Angels In Red.
 Go to Wolf's Reading Den now! Winner will be drawn by Sally at midnight, Friday the 8th. 

Congratulations Sherrie!

Three became four... and now five?

Here's the latest members of our 'All Girl' household. The cat in the back is named Creature. It's my oldest daughter's cat and once she finds a suitable apartment will be leaving the nest with Creature in tow.
The wee one in the front is my little girl. I named her Charlie. It was a pet name my Dad used to call my Mom. She's a real cuddlebug, purring all the time. Don't tell my girls, but I'm actually loving them both being here. Even though Creature broke my lamp last night. Of course this pic was taken shortly after. Talk about going from ANGRY to Awwww in 60 seconds or less. 
My little diva dog, ChaChi finally came around when Creature came first and before long the two were wresting and chasing each other through the house. Now we add Charlie to the mix and I'm pretty sure when ChaChi looked at me she was thinking'Are you serious? Two of them?' Poor old girl. She hasn't really taken to Charlie yet, but I'm sure she'll come around..... like she has a choice LOL

Don't worry, Eva is on her way!

Eva (Women of Strength Series)  Is available NOW! Check it out HERE

At eighteen years of age, Eva Denison’s father offered her a gift she’d only dared to dream of. In return, all he asked is for her to keep everything a secret—a small price to pay for her hearts’ desire—or so she thought.
Breaking her promise had never crossed her mind over the next six years. That is, until the day she accidentally fell into Jeremy’s life—a dreamy street musician who stole her heart on the wings of his love songs. For the first time in her life she is faced with the possibility of sharing her well-kept secret, and breaking the promise she made to her father long ago.

“I, I really have to go.” She shook his hold of her elbow and turned her back to him. Walking at a brisk pace to avoid further scrutiny. She hated that he thought she didn’t want to be seen with him. Maybe it’s for the best he thinks that.
“ Okay Eva, you win.” He spun her around to face him.
The hurt in his eyes were almost her undoing.
“If you ever stop caring about what people think less than what you feel in your heart, you can find me easily enough. For the record, I think you’re a very beautiful woman—the kind of woman men like me writes songs about.”

New Release, New Icon, Newsletter

Coming July 30th!
Eva is the next installment of my Women of Strength Series
‘Any secret worth keeping can be hidden in plain sight.’
At eighteen years of age, Eva Denison’s father offered her a gift she’d only dared to dream of. In return, all he asked is for her to keep his present a secret. It was a small price to pay for her hearts’ desire—or so she thought.
Keeping her promise proved to be more challenging than imagined. That is, until the day she had an epiphany of sorts.... ‘Any secret worth keeping can be hidden in plain sight.’  And that’s exactly how she lived her life from that day forward.
Then came Jeremy.... a dreamy street musician who stole her heart on the wings of his love songs. For the first time in her life she is faced with the possibility of breaking her promise, or.....
Maybe it’s best if he doesn't know.

Everyone has a pet peeve. Some of us have more than one. 
One of mine, is surprises in the genre of a book. If a book has two people embracing on the front cover and it's in the romance section, it best not be a story about a serial killer eating people's body parts. Um, ew! I just grossed myself out, lol  Anyhow, you get what I mean.
There are a ton of genres, but I think most people, me included want to know the rating of the book and whether it is a book about a man and a woman, or a gay couple, or transgender etc etc
Since creating my own covers, you will find  one of these  in the corner of the cover if it has adult content eg explicit sex or strong language etc so there is no mistaking it is a sweet romance. 
I've just created another icon for books that involve, in part, or in whole any person/story line that lends itself to the LGBT community. 
You will see the icon over there  if this is the case. . 
Thank you so much for such a positive response. It appears the general consensus is the 18+ icon is enough and the LGBT icon gives away too much of the story. So you talk....I listen and will nix the new icon. 
Thank you, my dear friends xxxx 
Do you think this is a good idea? I'd love to hear from you. 
After all, all that I do to better the reading experience of my books, I do for you, Dear Readers. 

My newsletter will be going out at the end of this month. As always, I will be drawing a name to receive an ecopy of my new release - Eva (Women of Strength Series)
I'm also going to be drawing a name to win a copy of the calendar,The Beauty in Trees, I put together with photos my readers have sent in to be included. There are some amazing shots from as far away as Zimbabwe. So, if you know of a friend who isn;t signed up, give them a nudge to do so on the main page *at the bottom*  of my website. 

If you want to hear what else is going on with me, Adelle Laudan, make sure you read My Newsletter going out on July 31st
