Winners, Free books & Good cheer!


Hello readers! It’s December 1. Yippee! A very exciting month for me this year and not just because of Christmas. But before I get to the good things coming this month, let’s have a quick recap of the successes from November.

I’m a NaNoWriMo winner! Despite all the other deadlines that I had in November, I still managed to meet the 50k word challenge for the month. I have to admit I only managed to hit it at 10pm last night (I typed about of 6k words yesterday) but I did it.

I’ve also completed the first draft of a story to be published in a Valentine Anthology by Romance Writers of West Africa. I just need to work on polishing it off now. An excerpt of the first chapter of the story titled A VALENTINE CHALLENGE is available here.


Editing on HIS STRENGTH, book 2 of the Men of Valor series is going well. Publication date is set as February 10, 2012. The completed book 3, HIS PRINCESS will be off to my editor shortly after I tweak a few things. It’s a much longer story. I hope she loves it like she did the first two.

Now on to December! If you didn’t already know it, HIS TREASURE is out on eBook on December 2. Hurray! I think I’ve been on a constant high for the past week in expectation. I don’t know if I’ll sleep tonight. I’m sure it’ll be a similar effect to waiting for the New Year.

The book is currently available on Breathless Press website. From Dec 2, you can buy it from Amazon and other online book retailers. A big thank you to everyone who pre-ordered a copy and put it in BP Bestseller top 5 for 10 days. It even got to #2 for a few days.
