In so many ways, February is a great month. Two of our most famous presidents were born in February. My grandmother was born in February. It’s Black History month. We celebrate Valentine’s Day.
For me, February is a month to endure on the way to Spring. This year, in my little section of the world, Winter hit us with a king-sized wallop in February. #Snowmageddon2015. We got somewhere near twelve inches, which may not seem much to some of you, but in the mid-south, it’s a lot.
Even the squirrels disappeared for several days. When they did come out, they either skittered over the surface of the snow or disappeared beneath.
Having nowhere to go, I stayed inside. About now, I really need to get out, but we have freezing rain. And more bad weather in the forecast. Ack!
I don’t want you to think I’m complaining–I love the snow. My favorite time is at night, when the world should be dark, but it’s not, because the light from the stars and moon reflect off the brilliant white snow. It’s gorgeous. Even though it’s twenty below out there.
Authorview is a great success this year. My first guest was Katie Weiland, author of Outlining Your Novel Workbook and Structuring Your Novel Workbook. You can read her interview here. February’s guest was Rachel Hauck, author of How to Catch a Prince (which releases today). You can read her interview here. How to Catch a Prince is available here.
Coming up in March: Amy C. Blake, author of newly released Whitewashed, will be my guest March 3rd. And my Authorview guest on March 17th is Siri Mitchell, author of Like a Flower in Bloom.
Guests and guest posts aside, March is big month for me. It’s my birthday month, and I’m going to celebrate by giving away books. So you will want to stop back by in March! There will be several chances for you to win free books.
As always, thanks for stopping by. I appreciate all of you. Hope you’re staying warm and safe!
The Love Boat Bachelor
Romance is a joke.
After the love of Brent Teague’s life came back into his world only to marry someone else, Brent is through with women. He might be through with being a pastor, too.
Brent was so sure that God brought Mara Adkins home to him so they could marry and live happily ever after. Six months after her wedding to another man, that theory is obviously a dud. If Brent could be so wrong about that, who’s to say he’s not mistaken about God calling him to pastoral ministry?
Tired of watching Brent flounder for direction, Brent’s feisty older sister boots him out of Spartanburg and onto a cruise ship. Brent’s old college buddy manages the ship’s staff, and he’s thrilled to finagle Brent into the role of chaplain for the two-week cruise.
As the ship sets sail, Brent starts to relax. Maybe a cruise wasn’t such a bad idea after all. But there’s just one little thing no one told him. He’s not on any ordinary cruise. He’s on The Love Boat.
What’s a sworn bachelor to do on a Caribbean cruise full of romance and love? He’ll either have to jump ship or embrace the unforgettable romantic comedy headed his way.
