I just received an email from Book Country, and here's what they've said: Our editors pore over titles on the site in order to feature the ones that they think deserve to be in the spotlight.
So... now my book, THE GOVERNESS, is featured on Book Country! Click here to see:
Thanks, Book Country!
Happy 4th of July! In celebration of America's birthday, all volumes of The Governess are FREE on the 4th of July! (Not The Trilogy.)

So here's the deal. Many of you have read my first three volumes of The Governess without the added chapters that now belong in the Trilogy. I've had requests to put those chapters out there in a novella...

I'm not real fond of forums, but they do have their purposes, and mine, right now, is to gain new readers.
My book sales have really slowed down since the big publishing houses put their old books all on Amazon this last September 2013 to sell older titles that have already done well. What do they have to lose? Nothing. But those of us who are self-published have really felt the hit. I was hoping to reverse that trend. To do this, I started a discussion about The Governess, whether you've read the Trilogy (with new end chapters added) or one of the original volumes. I would love to encourage anyone who has read this book to participate in this discussion.
Would you share what others might possibly enjoy about my story to increase the interest on Amazon.com (which is, by far, my largest audience)? I sure could use the help, please. Thanks, everyone!
Join the discussion here. (New link)
P.S. Please feel free to add comments to any avenue for book discussions (i.e., Goodreads, Shelfari, Kobo, Lulu, etc.). These comments would, I hope, draw attention to the book as well. Thanks! ;)
P.S.S. If anyone has a blog or website--I would certainly make myself available to do an interview or blog tour. Sorry! I feel like I'm pushing myself on everyone, but I could really use the readers. Thanks!

So...here I am at my writer's retreat, actually connected to the internet for however many minutes it will decide to be connected. But honestly, the only reason I've needed internet is to stay in touch with my family, because there is no phone service here. Anyhoo...it's been actually kind of cool to be restricted from the outside world up here in the mountains of Heber City, Utah, writing to my heart's content with 20ish other writers. It's been awesome!! We write and write and write. So far, I've written 7,386 words that I've actually remembered to count. We have contests, sprints, prizes, and yummy food.
It's been so amazing to be so focused. I've been able to finish all the new chapters for The Governess that I'm hoping to release this month, November 2013. I can't do the fancy stuff on this computer since it's different than mine, but I'll do that at home when I have a chance. I'll be working on a new cover as well, but most likely reuse one of them, but just add some stuff. Not really sure yet, since I'm still learning to do that myself. I hate bothering people. I learned some stuff about creating covers but it all still leads mainly to paying for someone to do it for you. I'm still poor enough that I'll keep it close to home. *sigh* But...someday... :)
I'm now working diligently on Pirate Bride. Guess what!! It's so fun!!! I love writing when I get to do it like this!! I love creating stories and characters and adventures. I'm also thrilled to compare my skills and writing and sales with other authors. Its been a real treat to see how well I actually am doing. It's been great incentive to keep doing what I love. Writing! So hang on to your britches, the stories are coming. I'm hoping that I'll have more time again once I get home. I'll just have to be creative and schedule time wisely. (And probably significantly shorten the length of them.)
Here's to more dreams, folks! So dream on.
P.S. I sure miss my family though! Love you!
So excited!!! Thank you, Wendy S., for the kind invitation!
I can't believe it! A whole weekend of nothing but writing! Woohoo! Yes!
My goals are: To finish all the new chapters for The Governess: Book One--Volumes 1-3 combined; and then to fully exhaust myself with Pirate Bride. Awesomeness!
I have really enjoyed getting back into Carly and Creighton's story and adding the new chapters about their wedding. It's been great fun! Many of you wanted that more in depth ending, so I hope you are happy with what I am coming up with. :) I look forward to hearing from you about what you think, too.
I LOVE being creative!
Just thought I'd let you all know its in the works, anyway...
I've had so many readers request more about Carly and Creighton's wedding...so I thought I might as well give you more, especially since I've combined all the volumes into one easy read. Kind of a gift to my readers, you could say. :)
I’ll let you know when the big day is to come! Right now, I still have much to do.
P.S. Let me know if you have other favorite things you'd like to hear about. :)
How cool is this?? I was blessed with an opportunity to be interviewed on Book Country! Thank you, Nevena, for this chance!

I guess the link didn't work. Try this link! I'm just curious what readers want. :)
I'm happy to say that Volume Three has done well this first week since it's release. In the UK, Volume Three is at #1! YAY!! Volume Two is at #3, and Volume One is at #11.
In the US, Volume Three was at #3 last night, but is now at #6. I'm still thrilled with that; any day of the week, in fact! Volume Two is at #8 while Volume One is at #12. All good numbers, and I'm thrilled to be on the first page of Religious Romance Fiction on any chart out there. Hooray for Christian Romance!
I'm in the process of assisting a few other authors with their projects (my friend, my sister, my husband, and my son--a fourth grader last year who wants to compile all his writings and drawings into a book before school starts. I'm thrilled!). But as soon as I'm finished with those projects, I'll be busily typing away at Pirate Bride's creation. Progress is always being made, thus bringing me closer to publishing new books in The Huntington Saga series novels. Pirate Bride is scheduled for release spring of 2014. I'll be thrilled to be working on that project! Woohoo!
In the meantime, if you are looking for good authors out there with good stories, visit my bookshelf, either on GoodReads or on Shelfari. I've read some amazing books over the years, some more satisfying than others, but they have driven me to share my own creative writings.
Have a happy day, everyone!
That’s in the USA, folks!! In the Religious Fiction--Romance genre. It's a great genre to read from and write for. Click here to see.
Wow! I’m freaking out with the biggest smile on my face ever! (…I can only imagine what that looks like…)
Thanks for your tremendous support, everyone!!
Yes, ladies! It's here! Volume Three of The Governess has finally finished processing... Whew!! It's in both Paperback and Kindle. Still working on the eBook and Hardcover, but they'll be ready shortly.
Click here for links!
That's weird...it's still 'publishing', but when I looked up my books in the UK just now, Volume Three came up with the other two. Okay--Cool! I'll go with that.
So UK--you're ready to go, I guess. :) Click here!
