Of Rags and Riches Made the ECPA Bestsellers List!



God is so good! 

My agent emailed me last night with some news, and I liked to have jumped out of my seat! If you're Southern, you'll know what I'm saying here. She forwarded the link to August 2017's ECPA Bestsellers List and told me to check out #16. I was FLOORED. (Another Southern phrase? I'm not sure.) 




Someone was on the phone in the room with me, so I couldn't jump up and squeal and do a Scooby Doo dance like I wanted. So I held my breath a few seconds, ran and found my mom in the other room and told her, then my sister and Dad. What a fun surprise!

Congrats to all my sister-authors in this Collection! Getting this news felt like a God-hug to me, and just knowing He is in control means so much. 


While you're here, have a slice of cake! We have chocolate, caramel, birthday, red velvet, German chocolate, orange slice, coconut, strawberry, Italian creme, and a good Southern favorite, hummingbird cake. (Anyone know where that name came from?)

I want let you in on the celebrating, so I'm giving away a paperback copy of Of Rags and Riches Romance Collection! Winner will be announced August 14, 2017. Comment with your email to enter.

    1. Hi, CARYL! Thank you! They are fun, aren't they? I love a book-length plot that I can read in an afternoon, and novellas are perfect for that. And finding new authors!
