On Babies

Sandra Orchard here.

The past few weeks have been a wild and wonderful whirlwind for me. I joined the police.

Oops, how did that photo get in there. I mean I had a new book release.

As many of you know, my "big" book, Deadly Devotion, released June 1st. Unlike my Love Inspired Suspense, the romance in Deadly Devotion will arc over the three book series—Port Aster Secrets—while each book is a standalone mystery.

If you enjoy fast-paced whodunits and/or herbal teas and remedies, I hope you’ll check it out. I happen to think it’s pretty good, but I might be a little biased. 

Many readers have asked me if I’m still writing for LIS as well. The answer is a resounding yes. I love writing these books!

That’s partly why this month has been so crazy. Along with celebrating Deadly Devotion’s release with a blog tour and book signings and speaking engagements etc., book 2 in the series was due June 1st, and my next LIS manuscript is due in 3 days, and edits for book 2 have landed, and they want chapter one of Book 3 and then there's Art Fact Sheets for LIS and #gasping for air# attending the Write!Canada conference, and, and…

Did I mention I expect to be a grandma again any day now?!!!

Do you know where the stork is that brings my new baby brother or sister?
Our newest little boy or girl is one day overdue, not that I’m complaining as I told my daughter I wanted to get all my edits done before she gave birth. But…she’s not happy with me! I’m supposed to hurry up and get done already. #grin#

So…if I suddenly go AWOL today and leave comments unanswered, you’ll know why, but…I’ll pop back in later and post the baby pic!

Your Turn: Any baby stories of your own to share?

Have you heard of The Book Club Network? The facilitators describe it as place where people can "feel safe, have fun, share hearts and embrace, Finding Hope through fellowship in reading groups." Membership is free. And until June 30th my publisher is giving away 5 copies of Deadly Devotion in the discussion we're having in the "Revell" group. You must sign in and join the group to leave a comment to enter. We're having a lively discussion. I hope you'll join us!


  1. Congratulations on the new grandbaby!

  2. Wow, Sandra. You just made me tired reading!

    I'm so excited about the new babies (books and human)!! :)

  3. Congrats on the grandbaby and all your writing success.

  4. You're going to have a most exciting day. I'm looking forward and will check back to see the baby picture you'll post later.

  5. Just got back from the midwife with my daughter...still waiting for some action. ;)

  6. Sandra, what a great hook! You had me at police. ;-)

  7. What a busy woman! I still say you look way too young to be a grandma. I probably won't be one until I'm over 65! That's okay by me though. Still dealing with teenagers!

    Good luck!!


  8. I guess I'll be dealing with teenage grandchildren when I'm 65. Yikes, that sounds scary. ;)
