This past week I've had a number of bookish blessings! My new release, Mercy in a Red Cloak, is now out in paperback and I got my first copies! It is price low for July, below its regular retail price--only $3.99, a bargain! Also available in Kindle. Currently has a 4.5 Star rating, praise the Lord!
My Heart Belongs on Mackinac Island. What a delightful surprise to learn that my Maggie Award Winning novel and Romantic Times Book Reviews Top Pick was available at the ultra low sales price of 99 cents!!! That's a steal. A lovely benefit was that Maude's story then went into the top 100 Inspirational Romances on Amazon (that's a high category even than the Inspirational Historical Romances, so a huge blessing!). As of right now (you need to check if it is still on sale) you can still purchase the ebook for only 99 cents!
I also got a proposal out to my agent and it's ready to go to the publisher for possible approval. And for another proposal, for a Women's Fiction novel, my friend Diana Flowers, a former contributor to this blog, brainstormed some great tweaks to my story. And she's agreed to be a Beta Reader!

I leave for Michigan on Wednesday and have a busy two weeks planned. I have a book signing scheduled at the Island Bookstore on Main Street on Mackinac Island on Thursday, July 18th, from 1-3 pm. I would love to see you there! I'm researching two novels while I am there, one set in the Straits and the other on Lake Superior.
