Well, it’s Sunday again and the start of a glorious new week in Anna’s World. I hope you all had a fantastic week. We returned from our Branson getaway on Friday evening, relaxed and ready to take on whatever the world throws our way in the week ahead. As some of you know, we will be on the road again at 4:30 Monday morning but this time not for a pleasure trip. My husband of nearly forty years has been fighting a battle with cancer for over four years and this is the week we go to IU Medical Center in Indianapolis for another week of intense immunotherapy.
Our four day getaway in Branson was awesome! We met some of the nicest people there and I handed out several bookmarks for one of my upcoming romances, Unlikely Lovers, which will be available in February from Rebel Ink Press. New friends were made and if we go back there, we will definately look them up. I did find some inspiration while there and may be including some Branson locations in future stories…we shall see. One of the local businesswomen we met was very enthusiastic about my work and couldn’t wait to get home and tell her daughter about me. 🙂 One fellow asked for a bookmark and after reading the blurb requested several more to pass along. I had to make a phone call to place a rush order for more bookmarks as I haven’t had a chance to give one to everyone I had intended to give one to yet!
We spent our time shopping, eating, and relaxing, as well as telling people about my upcoming releases. Now that’s my kind of vacation…I actually found time to read a Debbie Macomber romance while there.
I came home geared up to finish my current romance, the third in the Fab Five Series, and after writing most of the afternoon and evening yesterday am happy to tell you that it is finally very nearly finished. I am hoping to be able to work on it while at the hospital this week and submit it very soon to Lazy Day Publishing.
After that, I will go back to that pesky little love story that has been nagging at me for weeks to be told. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you might remember that a few weeks ago, I had to stop one day while working on The Road to His Soul and get the first few chapters of Sealed With A Kiss started. Those characters just would not leave me alone until I did. My hero and heroine in The Road to His Soul were probably glad I did because their story has blossomed since that day. Sealed With A Kiss is not a part of the series, so as soon as it is completed, I will get back to my wonderful “Fabs” and their drama. Because as you know, in Anna’s World, there is always a love story begging to be shared with the rest of the world. And after you meet my wonderful “Fabulous Five” and their families you will discover that drama and romance always seem to find them, where ever they go.
Edits should be rolling in soon for my first two releases so I am looking forward to a very busy November and December between my writing and editing, my day job at Southern Hills, and of course, the wonderful holiday season with family and friends.
Have a great week in your world and don’t forget to say a little prayer for us this week as we face the week ahead.
