Fall in Review – Newsletter

Fall in Review – Newsletter

 

Newletter BannerIt’s so hard to believe that it’s already November. The year has flown by way too fast! It seems like we just celebrated Christmas and will be again practically next week.

  • So much has happened since the last newsletter posted:
  • Brokenhearted Beauty hit both Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Thank you so much to every reader who has taken the time to write a review for either bookseller as well as at Siren and/or Goodreads. 562619_504283562965593_1469787352_nAn extra special thank you to all of you loyal readers who purchased a copy of Heather’s book legally and never ever share pirate links, or purchase them from pirate sites. You are the reason the world of Divine continues to grow. <3 <3 <3
  • If you have an Amazon account you can now mark Heather as a FAVORITE author. This feature appears to have replaced simply “liking” your favorite authors on Amazon.

images2October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It was great to see so many profile pics changed to pink in support of the survivors and those who finished their race – all are heroes!

Book 20 in the Divine Creek Ranch, Absentminded Angel, has been submitted to Siren Publishing and will be released December 19th. This book contains a crossover with Cara Covington’s Lusty, TX series.

  • Some characters we meet in books have zero redeeming qualities and wouldn’t know a happily ever after if it hit them square in the face ((cough*Tabitha Lester*cough)) but there was something different about Presley Ann. She was bratty and difficult when we first met her but her turnaround has been nothing short of amazing. This story will knock your socks off! I want to say more but…as a certain MSU friend of mine likes to say, it’s a heart hugger. <3
  • Heather’s dream house, with it’s 1001 electrical sockets *vbg*, is coming along beautifully. I heard she’s inviting  everyone out for the big reveal when it’s complete…just kidding, H~! ((please don’t fire me! 😀 )) (Note from Heather: No firing, only paddling 😉 )

  • pickup line banner 3Have you been reading the pickup line Ethan Grant posts each week? Ethan gives us a neat look at life in Divine from behind the bar at the Dancing Pony. It doesn’t get much more real than that. A recent pickup line post even featured a much anticipated emporium owner and a couple of hot handy men. Did you miss it? Go back to the October 26 post on Facebook. Also, keep an eye on the blog here. Heather is cooking up some extra special fun that relates to the pickup lines.
  • Speaking of blogs: Do you have a blog or reading group that does giveaways or guest author events? Please, email me at lilycastlevpa@gmail.com. We would love to provide you with some specially selected Divine gifts for your event.

  1. *jumping up and down excitedly* I can’t WAIT for Pressley Anne’s book! My heart has been needing a hug! 😉

    1. Thank you, Tammy. Slowly bringing Presley Ann around to the point where she would make a good heroine has been challenging but also rewarding. I’ve really appreciated the encouragement along the way♥

  2. Love Ethan’s posts about the happenings at Dancing Pony. They lift my heart. Thank you Heather for giving us the wonderful world of Divine, Texas!

    1. You’re welcome Eniko! When we set out to introduce Ethan to the world of social media I had no idea how enthusiastically he would be received by readers. And the following that has developed as a result of the Dancing Point pickup lines is nothing short of amazing. It’s a pleasure seeing readers enjoy a little slice of life from behind the bar at the Dancing Pony and I’m so glad that they bringa smile to your face♥

  3. If anyone can redeem Presley Ann, it is Heather!!! She is an inspiration to me as a writer and I really appreciate the encouragement for NaNoWriMo this month!!

    1. Thank you for that confidence, Tracey. Bringing Presley Ann around from a bratty ding-a-ling to a heroine worthy of a happily ever after has been challenging but also fun. And I have to say I enjoy watching pre-published authors get excited about setting goals, plotting, and then discovering through their own hard work and determination that they can achieve a decent-sized first draft in a month. That’s the fun part of being an author, being in that creative mode, taking in the world around you and focusing that energy on the creative process. I’ll also be cheering for you on December 1st when the work of shaping that novel into the next step of the process. ♥♥♥

  4. I can’t wait for presley Ann book. In the last 2 or maybe 3 books you have prepared us and slowly converted us to love her. Heather i really (love) the way you write. You really put your all in it. I can’t wait to read your books. I started a new author last week and i invested alot of money for one series which i stopped reading and can’t finish it. Due to missing depth (detail) to the story. December i still a long way. I really can’t wait!

    1. Thanks Josie. ♥ I’m going to be talking about that very issue on December 1st, here on my blog. I’ve learned the hard way recently, as a reader, to take advantage of the sample feature on Amazon, because many of the books I’m reading are not living up to the rave reviews that are posted for them. I’d rather pay ten dollars for a well written, well edited book that satisfies, rather than waste $2.99 reading a poorly written and poorly edited first draft. I’m sorry you had that experience and can definitely commiserate. Thanks for your confidence in me. ♥

  5. love the post about dancing pony. Can’t wait for next dvine book to be in print.
    i just picked up divine chasity and leah book…. yippy in paperback at amazon today!!!
    thank you for your gift in putting words together.
    aloha janis
