Building Ties On SALE for $.99 (And An Excerpt)

I've put Building Ties (Book 4 of the SEAL Team Heartbreakers Series) on sale until the 17th of December.  The book has a 4.8 rating out of 5. So if you like Hot SEALs and Hot Romance...

I Ain't A Writer Without You Dear Reader

Dear Reader: Thank you for reading my words. Without you I would be writing for an audience of one. Thank you for spending your hard earned money on my books, because I know it doesn't come easy. Thank you for interacting with me on my social media sites. I know that takes up your time. Thank you for helping me promote my books by sharing my posts, tweets, and sharing the books themselves. I gain more readers from your efforts than my own. Thank you for writing reviews for my work, and letting me know what I'm doing right, and what I'm doing wrong. It is so helpful. Thank you for your encouragement when I am overwhelmed Thank you for understanding my obsession with my work. Thank you for not thinking I'm crazy when I talk about my characters as though they are real people. But the biggest thank you is for giving me your time for all of the above, because it is so valuable. Because of you, I have the joy of doing something I love in my life

Does Size Matter? --In Books?

I've been seeing a trend in the writing-reading world. A trend toward shorter books. Mostly novella length things that run between 20,000-35,000 words. I suppose some readers like them because they're usually less money to purchase and can be read in about an hour and a half instead of the all day marathon most of my books demand. I'd love to know what you think so please leave a comment to this post if you have time. I've highlighted the questions I'd like you to ponder on as you read this blog. I have written several shorter works. My latest is Have Wand Will Travel a Magic and Mayhem Kindle World novella of 35,324 words. But I have to tell you writing short is difficult for me. I've posted the word count for all my shorter pieces below.
