Happy Fourth Of July to my American readers! I hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend.
Today's news: I updated my cover for Hustled To The Altar and put it on sale! For a limited time, you can save $3.00 and get it for $4.99! Here are your quick links:
Hustled To The Altar was a Golden Heart and American Title finalist. I indie published it because it was the manuscript I had on hand that was closest to publication quality when I sold. Everyone was putting out indie manuscripts at that point and I didn't want to miss the boat!
It's full-length at about 400 pages, is a stand-alone story and it's genuinely funny, according to my son. He read in Grade Nine silent reading, didn't skip any pages and wasn't being sarcastic with his compliment. If you can't trust a teenager to give you the truth without sparing your feelings, who can you trust?
My fingers are crossed that by next weekend I'll be providing you with a link to the free download I've been talking about. Here's the blurb as a teaser:

“Is there anything I could say or do to earn your forgiveness?”
Website designer Chelsea Parks grew up believing she would marry her best friend’s brother. In college, she gave him her virginity and he broke her heart. She knows she’ll have to face him, now that she’s maid of honor at his sister’s wedding, but she doesn’t expect to sit next to him on the plane to California. Good thing she’s so completely over him.
Architect Gavin Fairfield knows he screwed up, but he’s matured since then. Standing in as Father Of The Bride because his dad recently passed, he’s reassessing his future, realizing how short life is and how much he misses Chelsea. He can see now that they’re meant for each other. Too bad she’s so completely over him.
Staying at his family’s summer home, revisiting their old stomping grounds, burns Chelsea alive in old flames. Gavin is as easy to love as ever. She’d like to be friends again, might even succumb to a fling for old time’s sake, but real relationship aren’t built on a weekend of nostalgia. Are they?

I'll have a cover reveal next week too (hopefully!)
Meanwhile, I'll leave you with this shot from our back deck the other night. My daughter was home for Canada Day with her boyfriend. We were playing Pictionary and I noticed the brilliant colours outside. Not long after this, as soon as it was properly dark, it opened up with heavy rain for about half an hour. We were so relieved! The nights had been those hot ones that don't cool off at all, but it did that night.
Enjoy your weekend!
