Now available. *Sigh*

Many thanks to the wonderful people at Resplendence Publishing, who have been so good to me during my husband's illness.

Home Sweet Legend released today as an ebook on the Resplendence site. In the near future it will be available at third party retailers like Fictionwise, Barnes & Noble, All Romance Ebooks, and Amazon. Eventually it will come out in paperback as a two-book anthology with Where Her Heart Is.

To read an excerpt, go here. I love Greg and Chloe. Just love them. Definitely hope you will too!

A neat thing about the timing for this--Maddie James' new book, Romancing the Scone, also released today. Maddie's matchmaking chef series is a spin-off of the original Legend book. If you were needing a Legend, Tennessee fix, today should help.

Items in, items out

We continue to enjoy a plateau of "okay-ness" here. My husband's strength is increasing, he is able to get out daily because of nice weather, and so many lovely memories have been made, thanks to friends and family.

Happy memories in.

Also in is my new cover. Home Sweet Legend is the story of Greg Andrews and Chloe McClain, who were both supporting characters in Where Her Heart Is. I love the cover's rich texture, the fact that Chloe's art is represented there with the paint brush and the interesting light on the models, and particularly because it makes me feel the passion that exists between these two characters from page one. The story is sweet in that there is no love scene, but there is lots of tension and innuendo. What I have put them through--shame on me! But it will all be worth it. :) Publication date to be announced... You'll hear me shouting about it later.

Going out is stuff. I've been purging stuff, little by little, the last few months. Today the floor-length crinoline (yes, seriously, I have one of these) is going into one of the bags for Goodwill. I think I only wore it once, for our local pioneer festival. It's amazing what one can accumulate without even trying.

The less stuff I have, the lighter I feel, and the more capacity I seem to have for enjoying life. What a great trade-off.
