Summer Fun! Awards and An August Bride returns to Mule Hollow
Like the others who have posted I returned from RWA and have also been busy busy busy!
The conference was wonderful and I saw good friends, editors, my agent and also learned a lot. I also came home with an unexpected award! My historical mail order bride novella AN EVER AFTER SUMMER won the National Readers Choice Award. I was so pleased and completely surprised. It was an honor to win the award. Other winners were Brenda Novak and Jodi Thomas among others who were hoping for the unique Tombstone award. I'll head to ACFW in September where the novella is a finalist in the Carol Award also and I'm just honored to be nominated.
I'm in between Love Inspired books right now but I do have a very cute novella out this month from Zondervan and the Match Makin Posse of Mule Hollow have gone to Corpus Christi to Esther Mae's niece's beach wedding and they have their sites set on Esther Mae's other niece Kelsey! I really think this is a very good story and all my readers and new readers will enjoy it! RT Mag reviews give it 4 stars.
As far as Kelsey Wilcox is concerned, her last cowboy was the last cowboy.
Kelsey Wilcox has had enough of cowboys. After the last one broke her heart, Kelsey traded in her boots for flip-flops, and the open range for a bistro on the beach. Her life on Corpus Christi’s gorgeous beach might be a little lonely, but at least it’s heartbreak-free. At least until her cousin’s beachside wedding bucks Kelsey right back into the rodeo.
When unlucky-in-love Brent Corbin packed his groomsman’s tux for his friend’s wedding, he brought his boots and belt buckle with him. Brent isn’t exactly looking for love, but when he sees what appears to be a mermaid in distress, he jumps right in to rescue her.
So Kelsey finds herself plucked from the sea—and certain-drowning—by a gorgeous groomsman . . . in soaked cowboy boots. She’s quick to say thanks, but no thanks.
Brent dedicates the weekend to pursuing Kelsey—and Kelsey spends the weekend trying to deny an obvious match. She’s as stubborn as a wild horse, but Brent’s determination may tame her yet.
Until next time live laugh and seek God with all your hearts!!!
