This time I did it. I eschewed self-publishing and went with a publisher. It’s a clean romance so I’m now part of the stable of writers for Forget Me Not Romances, an imprint of Winged Publications.
As you might guess, they publish only clean and Christian romances, as well as other cross-genre fiction. My latest story isn’t exactly Christian though it’s close but it’s definitely clean because every time I try writing a hot, steamy sex scene I re-learn a lesson I learned early on in my writing career. That I simply can’t write while rolling on the floor laughing. Sooooo I’m into clean romances only.
Anyway, Shhh — Don’t Tell is now live on Amazon and I’d love, love, love to have readers read it and leave a review, which are the lifelines of books, unless your name is Steven King, and I’m definitely not him so any help in the review department will be much appreciated. Oh yes, you do have to have a valid Amazon account to leave a review. Sucks, huh?
And in case you are curious. Shhh — Don’t Tell is the story of a jilted up-and-coming corporate career woman who goes back to her small home town to recuperate emotionally, where she works in her aunt’s outdoor garden store and finds a clutch (I think that’s the correct term, correct me if I’m wrong) of Mallard duck eggs in one of the pots that’s for sale in the outdoor portion of the store. In her depressed state, as a kind of therapy, she decides to take on the job of protecting the mother Mallard and the ducklings until they leave in the autumn and she decides no one must know of their existence because people love to watch baby birds and too many people could be deleterious to their health.
Of course, there’s a romance with the town newspaper reporter whom she won’t tell about the ducks though she tells him everything else for the aforesaid reason — he’d write about them and they’d be deluged with unwanted visitors.
Read the book to see how everything works out. And, of course, it will work out because I wrote the book and I always, always, always end my books happily. I mean, why end a story any other way? Life is short and should be enjoyed and I don’t believe in wallowing in misery either in real life or in books.
As soon as I figure out how to link my newest book to this website, I’ll get it operational so all you readers who are panting with eagerness to buy the book can do so easily from this site.
