We're not here anymore...


We've moved permanently to Legend. The sweet tea is on the porch.

Monday, September 5, 2011


Ah, Legend, how we love you!If you haven't read the first four novellas by Janet Eaves, Maddie James, Jan Scarbrough, and moi, here is a cool way to do it.

The four stories are seamlessly woven together in the composite novel, Finding Home.Fall in love--in Legend, and with Legend.



And if you already love Legend, why not share it? Tell your friends about Legend, Tennessee, where romance lives next door!

Tangled Memories Released

Have you ever “repurposed” something? A chair, maybe. A dress? I’ve repurposed Tangled Memories several times. This "book of my heart" was a 1994 Golden Heart finalist in Romantic Suspense/Gothic.

I contracted the book in 1999 with a very early e-publisher. At the end of that contract, Tangled Memories went to ImaJinn Books for a few years. There it was given a 4 Star Review at Romantic Times Magazine. Not one to let a good book die, I contracted with another e-publisher after that contract. And now Tangled Memories is being re-printed by Turquoise Morning Press.

The beauty of an e-book is that it doesn’t go out of print!

What people have said about Tangled Memories:

“Lush, vivid writing. Tone, style and voice are all original and quite wonderful. The mood is nicely maintained, with just enough brooding suspense and Gothic overtones. Reminiscent of Mary Stewart.” Author Patricia Kay

“If you liked ‘Rebecca’ or ‘Jane Eyre,’ you are going to love this story.” Becci Davis, reviewer

eBooks are Here to Stay

NEWS: “On Monday, the 40-year-old Ann Arbor retailer called it quits after years of trying to compete with online bookseller Amazon.com and other booksellers. And while customers at Borders' flagship store on East Liberty Street in downtown Ann Arbor said the company was slow to adapt, they say they will miss having a brick-and-mortar place to browse for books.”

In 1999 when I contracted Tangled Memories to an upstart e-publisher, I quickly learned it was a waste of time. Twelve years later, online book sales and ebooks have brought an end to an era in publishing. Back then we didn’t have electronic devices for reading ebooks. Now we can choose from Kindles and Nooks. My iPad is equipped with three different types of e-readers. I’ve read more books in the year and a half since my husband bought me my iPad than I read in the five years before. Let’s face it BUY WITH ONE CLICK is too easy to do!

A multi-published author told me recently that authors have “more power than we've ever had before.” In my hometown, a local businessman John Locke became the first self-published author to join the "Kindle Million Club."

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, you can’t ignore ‘em any longer.
