I feel like I have been a writer all my life--as cliché as that sounds, even to me!--from childhood essays that ended up in the Sunday School bulletin, to long-ago burned journals (I hate that I did that!), to love-sick poems written on napkins while having a glass or three of wine, to newsletters and articles and press releases written on-the-job, and finally to happily-ever-after romances that I love love love writing!
As an award-winning author of four print-published novels via traditional publishers, I have now happily embraced the ebook revolution and am delighted to be on the indie path. I'm tellin' ya, the freedom is exhilarating!
So, what makes me different than the skads of other romance writers? I think my romances offer a little "something extra"--whether it's really interesting secondary characters with their own arching subplots, unique and detailed settings, or research that translates into unexpected facts sprinkled in. Whatever it is, my stories do seem to translate into something even first time romance readers enjoy! Nothing makes me happier than to read a review from a reader who was surprised by how much the story touched him or her. And, do realize that your reviews on Amazon are GOLDEN to indie authors, so do leave a sentence or two after you've read an ebook!
My debut ebook is HOMECOMING-a Wisconsin reunion romance. With over 40 reviews and averaging 4.7 stars out of 5, I'm over the moon with readers' responses (AND HOMECOMING was a Quarter-Finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest!). My second ebook is UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL--a Second-Chances sweet romance.
Also, all my ebooks include a 10% donation of my royalties to a designated charity, a different one for each ebook (my way to pay it forward!). I use the company name of Grantitude (grant + gratitude) Press, and you'll see the heart and pen logo on each of my ebooks.
