I couldn't resist this title. Writers around the world call their novels their babies and I am no different. After months of waiting, the time is almost at hand.
Today is the beginning of my labor pains:
excitement - it's really happening
anxiety - will anyone else like it?
excitement - my name in print
anxiety - am I really a writer?
Back and forth, just as though I were birthing a live child. I remember those moments when I worried if I would be a good mother or if I could make it through the pain of childbirth.
But this baby is coming forth Tuesday, February 4th, 2014. Mark the day on your calendar. :) I know I will.
And just for you - well, not really because I've shared this picture all over facebook and in e-mail - for your viewing pleasure.
Look, there it is with my name on the cover. Somebody pinch me. :)
Okay, so here's the deal. It will be available for purchase Tuesday, but I don't get any links until it goes live, so I can't send you there YET.
When I get them, I will POST them with the cover on the sidebar. (I'm having a guest blog that day and I do not wish to take away from her wonderful post.) You'll be able to click and it will take you to Amazon to purchase a digital copy (I hope).
Oh, and here's a quick blurb, so you know what the book is about. :)
Cahri Michaels is American by birth, but Belikarian by choice. Being selected to participate the Bridal March forces her to give up the independent life she’s created for herself. She’s not ready to be anyone’s wife, much less to a man she doesn’t know.
Prince Josiah Vallis despises the centuries old tradition—the Bridal March—that is forcing him to choose a wife from fifty women. Why does it matter that he’s twenty-five and still single?
When Cahri and Josiah meet, sparks fly. Will it ignite a godly love that can see them through or will they be burned, never to be the same?
