Thankful Author

     Even as my latest novel LOVE LIKE FIRE celebrates its first week out in the world and I start the third book in the series, I continue to learn about the fictional town of Hendricks and how its proximity to Lake Superior and the North Woods affects the characters and their story. To me, setting is one of the most fun elements to work with in a story. Researching locations excites me, but I also love to drop in fictional names and places into real-life places. I continue adding to the roughly-drawn map that I keep in my binder to keep track of business names, streets, and other landmarks. A reader sent me an e-mail last week, asking, "Is Hendricks a real place? I feel like I've been there." That made me happy. It means I've made Hendricks a living, breathing place in the book.
     LOVE LIKE FIRE was featured on Clean Wholesome Romance on Monday, and is currently $0.99 through 12/3. I'll also be talking more about the writing process behind the novel during a 40-author Facebook Christmas Party on Dec. 7th during my half-hour time slot. Sign up at the link so you don't forget. I'll be offering a multi-author prize pack then, too.
     Also, today I was the guest poster in Angela Hayes' Thankful Author 2018  series. Read about the many furry blessings I've had in my life.
