I am excited to share the news that Falling for Kate (An Angel's Lake Novella) will be published by Penner Publishing in time for the holidays.
Don't know if you remember Lucy's younger sister from Falling for Home, but Kate was part of the reason Lucy came home.
Though Kate Aarons had just finished her degree in social work, designing was her hidden passion. Lucy was able to hook her sister up with a sweet internship at a major fashion house in New York City.
Fast forward a couple of years. Kate's dream may have been in New York, but her home and her heart are in Angel's Lake. Wanting the best of both worlds, Kate decides she'll open her own dress shop in the town she loves.
Elliot Peters wants to give his daughters a stable, steady, predictable home life. Something his ex refuses to do. When he brings them back to Angel's Lake for Christmas, he knows he'll fight to have them with him for good.
With Kate home, needing a place to live and a temporary job, Elliot thinks he has the perfect plan. If Kate will be a nanny to his girls, they'll be well cared for and she'll have plenty of time to focus on her plans of opening her own store.
Both Kate and Elliot wonder if they've made the right choices in their lives up to this point. But when they give into the attraction that sparks between them, they learn, sometimes, it takes a while to get where you're meant to be.
Come back to Angel's Lake this Christmas as Kate and Elliot fall for each other.
Part of being an author (it's in the unwritten rule book) is checking your email obsessively. From the moment you decide, yes, I'd like to be published, you commit to becoming increasingly attached to your email. I'm talking send-yourself-an-email-from-your-other-email-to-make-sure-your-email-is-working attached. The kind of attached that means you're happy to get junk mail, even though you get that quick jolt of "Yay, I have email" before the inevitable, "Oh, it's junk mail" because it means that yes, your email is operating correctly.
You might be waiting for responses to queries, word from your agent, word from your editor, publisher, critique partner, beta reader, blogger...you see what I'm saying. It always makes me wonder how people survived the writing/publishing process in the age of snail mail. Can you imagine mailing your query, waiting for a response, mailing your manuscript, waiting for a response.
It seems unbearable but even four years ago, when I started querying, agents were still accepting snail mail. Now, not so much. So email matters! Writers spend a lot of time waiting and hearing the whoosh or ping, or ring that you've got mail is like getting a tiny shot of oxygen after you've been under water for too long.
On Tuesday, I got one of those lovely types of emails that weren't junk mail or Netflix telling me what I'd really enjoy.
It was notification that my story, Undercover Distraction, is a finalist in The Catherine Contest, through the Toronto chapter of Romance Writers. I've finaled before in contests, but I have to say, it feels especially cool to make it to the next round in a Canadian one. I love this story. It was very fun to write and starts with a disastrous first meeting between the hero and heroine. It's a reminder that we never know where the moments in our lives might lead us.
