A Friend's New Release!

There are thousands of thoughts lying within a man that he does not know till he takes up the pen and writes. ~ William Makepeace Thackeray

Today's blog is all about a new release from a friend of mine -- I'm excited to announce that "Sweet Forever" by fellow New Hampshire-ite Ceri Hebert is being released by Samhain publishing today!

Torn between the home she loves and the man she’s falling in love with, Hayden must decide which one she will leave behind.

When Hayden Merrick travels to meet her grandmother for the first time, she doesn’t expect to find the father who abandoned her or a man who could prove to be the love of her life.

There hadn’t been much time for romance in Ben’s Winslow’s life and no woman has interested him enough until Hayden arrived at his neighbor’s home. As soon as he meets her, Ben believes she could be the woman he’s always hoped for, but he has to convince her life could be just as sweet on the prairie as on the coast.

Hayden’s plans to return to her home are put on hold as she struggles with a difficult decision—pursue a life in South Dakota or return to the one she’s loved at the edge of the ocean? Ben hopes he can give her the best of both worlds.

Congratulations to Ceri!


Today is also my daughter's eighth birthday -- time is flying by. It seems like I just had her yesterday (or, at the very least, last week). At this rate she'll be in college by May.

I'm just thrilled that the weather is nice enough she can wear a dress or skirt -- she's a girly-girl (except when she's playing in the dirt, though she'd prefer to be wearing a dress to do that, too) and it'll be a nice treat for her to dress up for her birthday.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Have you entered to win a free book yet?

Congrats to Ceri! And H.B. to your daughter, too, of course. Any big plans for the day, besides digging in the dirt in her dress? (C'mon, you know you have to let her...it's her birthday, after all)

Ceri said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUR DD!! Playing in the dirt with a dress? I love it! My DD is going through her tom boy phase right now.

And thanks so much for posting Sweet Forever. I'm all a bundle of nerves right now!!

Ceri said...

Oh and wonderful progress on your novella!! I'm in awe! I've got so much work to do on mine, but I have to save it for after my galley is done. Still can't stop the ideas from bouncing around my brain. I'm going to be looking at Wild Rose as a possible place to publish it when its finally finished. :)

Kudos to Ceri (How do you pronounce that?).

And imagine how I feel: I have a kindergardener, a first grader, a newlywed and a divorced father of three! They DO grow too fast!!!!

Melissa said...

Happy Birthday to your daughter! Hope she has a wonderful day!!!!

Cool about your friends book, too!

Charity said...

Best wishes all around. Kyra likes dresses and skirts, too, unless we're talking "rock star" jeans. Then all bets are off.

Congratulations to Ceri! As someone who moved from Alabama to South Dakota (SIGHT UNSEEN!!) for love, I think I will have to purchase this book! Off to check it out now.

Well, there've been technical difficulties over at Samhain and Sweet Forever isn't listed yet. I'm really bummed out, but seeing all the well wishes really warms my heart! Thanks everyone!
