Cover Art Opinions Wanted

Almost there!

I am very close to uploading my story to Amazon for Kindle download. I put together samples of a temporary cover - One to be seen on Amazon until the book gets printed in hard copy.  What speaks to you? I created these, so I can always alter, add or delete. Please feel free to comment. Suggestions welcomed!


And because I can't resist, here's another brief excerpt from the story:


“Marie’s a busy body. Likes to hear herself talk.” Toby said the words without anger, despite the dig at Marie.
“Seems she also likes you.” I tried to lighten the mood. “Said you were easy on the eyes.”
“Hey, we need the help, so I do what I can to keep those women coming back. I’m always polite, but I got them figured out,” Toby said, with an air of knowing. “Mrs. D and the rest of those church ladies are all about the eye-candy. Every so often, I walk around without my shirt on.”
About to pick up a shovel, I burst out laughing.
“You are a real piece of work.”
He grinned and said, “Thanks.”
I had a feeling Toby would keep me amused all week.

I can't take the credit for this, but the words are so true I had to share.

How many people will smile today because of you?

My husband is a natural smile-maker, and a champion of making people feel good about themselves. He has a smile, a greeting, and kind words for everyone he meets during his day — the clerk at the deli, the men and women he sees briefly, who sign work orders — and he's liable to break into song and dance at any given time, around perfect strangers. Because of this, many, many people enjoy his company.

I find the more I smile, the more uplifted and positive I feel at the end of the day. It's such a good feeling, I wish everyone could experience it. The truth is, a smile is such a simple, easy thing to share.

In case you need a few suggestions, try these: Smile and say good morning, hello, or have a great day!Not only hold the door for someone, but step back and let them go first.Say something nice about someone's c…

Keeping Claudia Update

Get your tissues ready

I found myself crying as I finished re-reading my edit copy of Keeping Claudia. These characters have come to mean so much to me, they're like family.

It looks like release will be… (fingers crossed) sometime in April. I really hope you guys will love this story as much as I do.

Your Song sung by Lee Mead (originally by Elton John) was a strong inspiration during the writing.
