Now, if you're a part of my Motley crew, please feel free to comment but since you're already getting a free book, I'll not enter you in the drawing. K? (You know who you are!! And I do too!!)
And in the book news arena, I thought you'd like to know that I Also just signed yet another contract, along with three other stupendous authors to write part of a Novella called Rendezvous at Central Park.
Experience the beauty of Central Park where four heroes
dare to risk their hearts once more for a timeless love.
The “Rendezvous at Central Park” is a collection of stories which trace the journey of a Civil War era coin, inscribed with the words “Love Never Fails, Central Park” through four generations of the Wolfe family.
Here are the four authors involved and the stories they are writing. Each of us writes our tale in about 20K words or so, making the entire book between 80-100K, which is the general size of a regular novel. This is my first time doing something like this, and I'm SO EXCITED to be a part of such a great team! This book will be Incredible!
