News, Reviews, & Favorite Quote Friday

Happy Friday!  The first week of 2017 has been a productive one for me, as was the last week of 2016.  I’m loving Aidan’s book (Immortal Guardians Book 7).  I think Aidan and his heroine have made me laugh as much as Ethan and Heather did in Shadows Strike.  :-) 

I also got an idea for what I think will be a great Immortal Guardians novella.  And this time, since I’m not going to traditionally publish it, I won’t have to adhere to a word count.  For the first two, I was given a word count limit of 20,000—25,000 words (or 80–100 manuscript pages), which I admit I exceeded both times.  LOL!  But now there will be no limits, so I’m even more eager to write it.  

I’ll keep you in suspense as far as who the hero will be.  And for those who have already begun asking, I intend to finish Aidan's book first.  I don’t like to work on two projects at once, so—once I start one—I keep going until I finish it.  :-)

I also received more good news from Kimberly at The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  A Sorceress of His Own made her Top Ten Romances of 2016 list.  Woohoo!!  Here's what she had to say:

"I loved this tale from the setting to the characters.  Duvall is an auto-buy for me.  Dillon and Alyssa are one couple you'll want to spend time with."

You can read her full review HERE.

If you don't have a business page on Facebook, then you may not know that Facebook is letting fewer and fewer of the people who like an author/business page see that page's posts in their feed.  So I've begun to post links here to some of my posts for those who may have missed them.  :-)  Here are the most popular recent posts:

I also thought I'd kick off the new year with a giveaway this weekend over on Facebook.  You can find it on My Author Page.

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  Since A Sorceress of His Own was on my mind a lot this week, I thought I would share a narrative quote from it today:
His eyes returned to her face, taking in every detail of her features, struggling to come to terms with the fact that this lovely young woman was the same treasured friend and companion who had been by his side for the past seven years.  The same one who had seen through his formidable facade to the quiet man beneath.  Who had advised him so wisely, never once thinking him weak for seeking her counsel.  Who had argued with him, challenged him, comforted him, brought laughter into his life, and been there for him in so many ways.   
The wisewoman had possessed every quality he desired in a bride save youth. 
Now she possessed that, too.
Have a wonderful weekend!  And stay warm.  It looks like it may be a chilly one for many of us.  Perfect weather for curling up with a good book in front of a crackling fire.  :-)
