Celebrating Spring with a New Release

Happy Spring, everyone! I hope you're having lovely weather where you are.

Before I talk about my brand new release, I want to show you some pictures of our garden. Here in Central Florida, we get an early start. This year, we'll have a few blackberries on the bushes planted just last year. The bushes should branch out over time. At least we hope so.

We've had better results with our veggies. I'm looking forward to harvest already! There's nothing more tasty than fresh produce from your own garden.



And then there's another kind of produce: the books I write. Here's my brand new April release:
Cowboy Homecoming, Love Inspired Historical, April 2017

Love finds a home out West.
After two years, Tolley Northam returns home, transformed from a mischievous youth into an ambitious lawyer confident of winning his father’s approval at last. But he soon begins to wonder if the only way to do so is to marry family friend Laurie Eberly—a woman his father has always liked. If only she weren’t so adamant about refusing Tolley’s proposal…

Laurie’s childhood friend is now a handsome, accomplished lawyer with undeniable charm. But she can’t accept Tolley’s proposal; she believes it’s just to earn his father’s praise. First he’ll have to prove to her that he wants her for a wife not because his father thinks she’s the perfect match, but because he does.

Click on the safe link below to find out how you can purchase your own copy of Cowboy Homecoming.

On May 1, I'm giving away one copy of Cowboy Homecoming to a U. S. resident. To be entered for my drawing, leave a comment below and tell me what's growing in your garden OR how you celebrate spring where you are. Blessings!

Just one more note:
At last my entire "Then Came" post-Civil War series is available in both print and ebook. I hope you'll take a look. Please take a look: Then Came Faith, Then Came Hope, Then Came Love.

The only thing growing in my garden, as it is to early to plant my garden here in WV, is my rhubarb and garlic are up. My hyacinths and daffodils are blooming. Thank you for the chance. Blessings

My husband is the gardener in our family and was so excited to find a raspberry that can be grown in a pot! We have lots of raspberry canes just leafing out, and our wisteria is going to be beautiful soon with bunches of blooms!

We don't have a garden, but my Mother's nephews do and they provide us with a great bounty. I'm not sure what they've planted yet. Now here at home, my Mom has beautiful roses all over the yard with some different but beautiful colors. Thank you for the opportunity of this great giveaway.

It is way to early for growing things in Duluth, MN. Love your garden things. It has been years since I gardened.

Thanks for the chance to enter this contest!
Every year I try to grow a few things but so far I haven't had much luck. :)
God Bless,

We are still in the process of planning our garden as it is too early to plant here in New Jersey. Last year the deer and rabbits ate every single thing we planted, so we are contemplating using galvanized horse troughs to plant in this year and surrounding them with protective fencing. Hopefully that way we will get some vegies and not just spend time and money feeding the wildlife! Thank you for the chance to win your book!

We don't have a garden. We just don't have time to take care of and maintain one. But we do love being outside, especially this time of year when the weather is so nice and temperature is perfect. We just moved to a new house that has a built in fire pit on the back porch. We've already used it twice to make s'mores. It's been yummy and so much fun! :)

Thank you for your wonderful books. I can't wait to see who your next hero or heroine will be in Esperanza. I love Tolley the most, so far. My garden has just a few flowers now with; purple periwinkles, and white daffodils. My primroses, roses, irises, and my favorite peonies are growing, but it is too early for them to bloom here in Washington state. I love to sit in my swing and read.

Thank you for all of the lovely comments. Please tell your friends to stop by and leave a thought to share with us. May 1 is coming soon, and I want lots of people to be in my drawing for a print cope of Cowboy Homecoming!
