 I got word last week that my debut novel NO SMOKE WITHOUT A FIRE is scheduled to be released in September! I've been so busy last week with edits and re-writes I forgot to post this in here!! I'm so excited!!

 

Here's the blurb for my book :)

 

Bitter and wary of men after her husband of 18 years leaves her for a younger woman, forty-year-old ER nurse Beth Sawyer has decided dating isn't an option. That is until an arsonist's crime brings Jackson Stanton--a strong, handsome, twenty-seven-year-old fireman suffering burns--to her trauma unit. Despite loathing the title of "Cougar", Beth finds her attraction to Jackson too strong to resist.

It seems simple at first--a fun fling with the added bonus of payback to her ex-husband. But the more Beth dates Jackson, the stronger her emotions grow. So, too, does the arsonist's death toll. When suspicion for the fires lands on Jackson, Beth must determine if the man she's falling for is out to set her body and heart on fire ... or has her marked as his next victim.

That's so cool!!  I have a novel I started a few years ago that I put aside because life had gotten in the way.  I am so excited for you...what an undertaking, and not only did you finish it, you are being published.

Many, many congratulations!  I will be on the lookout for your book in Sept.  Please post an update on where it will be available.  Cheers!!

 I sent out a ton of query letters to both agents and publishers. I had several hits from both, and finally an offer from Soul Mate Publishing. They publish both e-books and paperbacks, although my book will come out in e-format only in Sept. It will be next yr before it comes out in paperback.
