Winners and stuff!

I think I’ve contacted all of you (thank you for leaving your emails when you commented!), so be sure to check your emails from me! As a special gift, if you’re a subscriber to my blog (and that means you’re getting this post in your email), then I sent you a copy of this release as a thank you!

 

If you’re in the South Arkansas/North Louisiana area, I hope to see you Thursday Night in Ruston! We’re having a book signing at the Lincoln Parish Library! I’ll be signing Rough Ride and Apple Trail Vol 1. Authors who will be there with me are Connie Cox, Beth Cornelison, Winnie Griggs, Liz Talley, and Lenora Worth!

 

It’s not too late to grab a copy of In Her Sights early. For every 10 people who add my book to a goodreads list, I’ll give away a free copy to one of you! Contest runs until the book releases October 16!

 

My husband has been reading and proofing In Her Sights. Every 20 or so pages he makes a comment about the story. If you’re on twitter, you’ll see the hashtag of #dhproofing. Last night’s comment was too long for twitter, so I posted it here:

 

Husband reads aloud: “You don’t look so good.”

He laughs and says: Hell no. No man would ever say that to a woman he’s attracted to. Ever. I can tell you what she’s going to do with that dagger now. She’s going to stab him.

 

Happy Tuesday All!!!

Celebrating 9 Years!

Today marks 9 Years of Happily Ever After Marriage with my husband!

(this was us on our honeymoon)

Leave me a comment and I’ll pick 9 of you (if I get 9 comments at least!) to win an e-copy of my upcoming new release, In Her Sights. I have a busy weekend and week ahead, so comments will be open until next week! I’ll pick winners then!

 

Some call her a killer.
Others call her a hero.

Lexie Olympia calls herself neither. She’s getting the job done because she can. A beloved philanthropist by day who’s nicknamed Melville’s Sweetheart, Lexie has the city wrapped around her little finger. Having been a victim in the past, left behind with the killer still on the loose, Lexie knows what it’s like to live with that fear. Instead of biting her nails over it, she takes action. Drug lords, gang leaders, con artists, kidnappers, serial killers, anyone who leaves behind innocent victims are marked on Lexie’s list.

Local Private Investigator Clayton Addison finds there’s more to Lexie than meets the eye. Sweet on the outside, dark secrets that he’s uncovered underneath. Now that he knows what she’s hiding from the rest of the world, Clayton has to wonder if his time is ticking.

Coming October 16, 2012

Add To Your Goodreads Bookshelf (tip: for every 10 people who add my book to their goodreads shelf, I’ll give away a copy to one of you! Giveaways end when the book releases!)

And then again, my book–the reason all this is happening!

Like to read before you buy? Chapter One is here

You do for family, no matter what. Lane Iverson knows that better than anyone. Harboring a secret about his mother’s death, Lane is counting the days until he finishes helping his brothers with some work and can head back to his hiding hole hours away. As long as he doesn’t have to face his three brothers every day, the guilt is easier to carry.

There is only one thing that can risk his plan. All of five foot tall with these deep eyes and a voice that shudders through him. The completely addicting, Gretchen Jones. She’s been watching him the entire time he’s been in town. With courage from her friends behind her, she confronts what she wants. To her surprise, that’s the easy part. Keeping her heart protected when she knows he’ll be leaving? Not so easy, but her only choice.

It’s Planting Season!

that’s “it’s planting season” is off of something and I can’t think of what. For some reason I’m thinking The Rats of Nimh but that doesn’t seem right. Anyway, the tomatoes are doing their seed thing!

First I got all my stuff together. I’ve been saving my toilet paper rolls. I cut them in thirds and fit them in Little Debbie boxes.

I also didn’t have near enough toilet paper rolls (never thought I did) so I used a bunch more Little Debbie boxes. And yes, we really did have this many Little Debbie boxes in use in my house, at the same time. It’s a sickness. A tasty one.

They all got filled with dirt and seeds poked in them.

I tried not making a mess, but it happens.

Faced them toward the window, watered and covered with plastic. I think the plastic does a greenhouse like effect. I’m really not sure. I saw it somewhere, about something.

I wanted to let them live in their little cardboard houses a while and let them get bigger, but I imagine since I had so many seeds I was squeezing in and around, I’ll have to put them outside sooner rather than later. Stay tuned for the next step!
