Life changes and I started self-publishing my romances in 2012. It's overwhelming at times being in charge of everything, but I have a great support system...my husband, my long-time author friends, and other author friends from my previous publishers, Rebecca Vickery Publishing and Desert Breeze. I appreciate their help in editing, cover designing, formatting and other help with self-publishing. Their names are listed under my Writing Friends here on my blog. But an even more important support I have received has been the Lord. He hears my prayers and answers them the way they need to be...not always the way I want, but the very best answers for me at each time. I'm thankful and happy to be a Christian. God's blessed me with wonderful children, daughter-in-law, and grandchildren.
The other week I asked for my rights to all three books. I received my rights back from Samhain Publishing on Wednesday, July 2nd. After I told my news to a close friend, Regina Andrews, she said, "That's a big step towards your independence on this 4th of July weekend." She's right. It is another big step in my writing career.
I'm excited to give two of the books new titles that I think will be much better. I have ideas for new covers, and I'd love to have a sequel to A FIERY SECRET. I always wanted a Catherine Steel Mysteries Series so now might be the time for this to happen!
