Like children, every book gets the loving care and attention they require, but try as you might, sometimes you can’t help but have favorites. Maybe it’s because some are easier to deliver than others, or maybe, with each birth, your latest becomes the favorite.
Whatever. I’ve never had children so I have no idea what I’m talking about!
What I can say is, I love The Bonding Spell.
I love all of my other books, but this one … well, there’s something about it that makes me feel some extra pride. I love the world, I love the characters and I love the potential for this series. There are so many places this storyline could go I’m having a hard time deciding where to take it next. I’m sure wherever it goes will be just as interesting as this first one.
Yes, I plan to write another Master Sergeant Harper story, but right now, Hester Trueblood and her friends are occupying a big chunk of my heart and it may be some time before I have room for much more. This is my first crack at the urban fantasy genre and like everything I write, there are some heavy romantic elements as well as a juicy mystery. I feel as if everything I’ve written before has led me to this.
I’ll be bringing the very first copies of The Bonding Spell with me when I go to the Twin Cities Book Festival this year, Saturday, October 17 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. I’m looking forward to linking up with family and friends and getting The Bonding Spell into the hands of my faithful readers. I cannot wait to hear what you think of it.
In the meantime, you can read a large excerpt here. You can also give me a big hand by nominating The Bonding Spell for publication. I’ve “entered” it in Amazon’s new Kindle Scout program. If enough readers show interest in the story, Amazon may decide to publish it for me. All you have to do is read the excerpt posted on the site, and if you think it’s any good, nominate it and we’ll see what happens.
Amazon publishing contract or not, I’m still polishing this shiny new story and look forward to releasing her to the world soon. I can only hope you love it half as much as I do.
