New Book Now Available-Their Surprise Second Chance!

 Look! Their Surprise Second Chance is available for pre-order! This is my first novel with Love Inspired and I'm so excited!

After her adult son survives a plane crash, Nicole St. John believes the one person who can help him heal is his pilot father—who doesn’t know the twenty-four-year-old exists. Now Adam Hawk will do anything to support his son, even spend time with the woman who kept him a secret. But as old feelings resurface, can Adam convince Nicole she’s the final piece in their new family?

Nicole and Adam's story was amazing and fun to write. It's a second chance, secret baby, return to hometown novel. All the feels! (I hope!)

When Grant offers to help Eden save her business, she never imagined she might lose her heart.

Eden Conrad and Grant Allen have come a long way since a childhood kiss on the playground--the kiss that kicked off a lifelong crush on her best friend. Now, the inaugural event kicking off her new event planning business is in shambles when the caterer goes missing.

Scarlett Davis, still reeling from her twin sister’s betrayal, is laid off from her marketing job days before Christmas.  Stunned, she has no idea what God is doing.

Mason Langford runs a homeless shelter in Atlanta, but unless he finds the promise of funding, will have to close the doors January first.
It seems natural for Scarlett to help Mason with his funding proposal.

Scarlett can’t believe that Mason, who everyone describes as a man with a huge, beautiful heart, has such a past.
When Mason tries to speak into Scarlett regarding her relationship with her twin, she doesn’t listen. Scarlett knows healing comes from forgiveness. Will Scarlett remain steadfast, refusing to open her heart, or will past hurts change the course of current betrayal, so Scarlett can learn to love?

Designing a Boxed Set Cover

There is so much talent in this group of authors. Below, Cindy tells us how she came about designing our beautiful cover!!

Designing a Boxed Set Cover
Kisses, Kids and Bundles of Joy
Cindy Flores Martinez

When I began the design process for the Kisses, Kids and Bundles of Joy cover, I knew I needed to portray two things – winter and a couple-in-love with kids. The boxed set is a collection of Christian romances, and every story is set in winter and has at least one child (babies, kids, teens) as part of the storyline. I’m no design expert. I had only experimented with my dad’s Photoshop, so I was prepared to hand the project over to a professional. Before I did, I wanted to see what images were available on the stock photo websites. Out of curiosity, I began searching for a winter couple with kids.

I found a lovely winter family that I liked, but the photo appeared pale and dull when I experimented with it as a cover. That’s where a bow came along. I had seen other boxed sets use them, and I liked how they looked, so I found a blue one that made the scene brighter. But things took a dramatic turn when I came across a glittery aqua blue bow that captured my heart. The glitter reminded me of the glittery sheen on the surface of snow when the sun reflects on it. And, well, aqua blue is my favorite color. In an instant, I knew I had to have that bow instead. Unfortunately, it didn’t match the winter family, or any other winter family that I came across, or a winter couple without kids for that matter. Finding winter scenes that match aqua blue isn’t easy!

And then I found the perfect couple. The look in their eyes won me over. They reminded me of the couples in our stories who are hopelessly in love. But they didn’t match the aqua bow, either, and neither did any other winter background that I sampled behind them.

It seemed the only solution was to give up on the bow, but I couldn’t do that. I loved that bow. When you really love something and want it badly, you’ll fight for it, right? You’ll find a way to make it happen no matter what the odds are against you. I couldn’t stop. I had to make that bow work. I didn’t relent, and I eventually found a winter background that matched. The little girl on the cover was the icing on the cake with her aqua dress and the glittery snow in her hands.

After I placed the images together and created a 3D mock-up cover, we decided to use it. Total cost for the full cover? Less than 42 dollars. Maybe next time I’ll rest and let a professional take over. I hope you enjoy the stories in the collection!

Reading Again

So, I've been reading A LOT! Which means I haven't been writing a lot, but that's okay. I think sometimes we need a break and we need to read some amazing books. As I read, I learn. I get lost in story and I learn.

I read books 1 & 2 of Carol Moncado's The Montevaro Monarchy Series

Good Enough For a Princess

Such a sweet story!! Loved it and moved on straight away to book 2--

Along Came a Prince

Ha!! So good! Will be reading book 3 shortly

More Than a Princess

I love reading about royalty, kingdoms, princesses, princes, kings and queens. And islands! All their own. Seriously. This is good reading.

Won't you join me?

My Word of the Year

I'm a day late! Apologies. But not sure anyone is reading this blog anyway. :)

So my WOTY is:

Renew! defines it several ways:

1. To begin or take up again

2. To restore or replenish

3. To revive or reestablish

I'm viewing my WOTY as a spiritual renewal. Not that God has every left me. But I'm to be reminded that He never leaves us. His spirit within us is always renewing us to be the person He wants us to be.

We have continual renewal through Him. I tend to forget that. When I worry, I'm forgetting that He is faithful. When I choose a wrong path, I'm forgetting to look to Him for the way to go. When I say things I shouldn't I'm forgetting to wait for His words.

The list can go on and on.

Psalm 51:10New King James Version (NKJV)

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.

So, this is where I'll live in 2015. 

What about you? Do you have a word?

Word of the Year

It's 2015---Any resolutions?

A lot of people talk about how they don't make any resolutions because they never keep them. Like 1 day into the New Year and they're done--broken.

I know the feeling.

So, a  lot of those same people now pick a 'word of the year.' I really like this. I've done this in the past. I've had people ask me how you get your word for the year. The simplest way, in my opinion, is that the word will settle in your spirit. It will feel right and give you a peace.

Have you done this before? Do you have a word for 2015?

Or if you have resolutions, that's awesome, too.

I'll be posting my word on Monday.

How about you? Will you join me?
