I Am Back

Hi Folks,

As you can see I have been working on my blog again.  It's so much fun rearranging things.  Wink!  I have been busy writing on a short story, and I'm about to finish it up.  Also, if you look down the right side of my blog, you'll see I have downloaded new book covers.

My publisher, Eirelander Publishing, decided the bookcovers for my mystery trilogy needed to be updated.  They are going to be re-released at the end of August.  Until then they won't be for sale.  Another change is my publisher will not have a store front at their site to sell books, but all books will be sold at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, All Romance E-books, and other spots. 

Below is another contest at Romance Books 4 Us.  Be sure to join in the fun and win some great prizes by going to

The covers are so pretty. I've found that covers make the biggest interest in books. I wish you all the best.

ps. I love the updated blog. I also change mine around to keep it fresh.

Sandy said...

Thank you, Melissa. I think it's a good idea not to let your blog grow stale.
