Finally finished. Daffodils was sent today. I struggled with the final submission piece over the long weekend. Here's the blurb to go with the submission. I'll keep you all posted!

Margaret Ellington moves to Solsta, CA after her husband dies, hoping to find satisfaction in her teaching career. She vows never to marry again unless she can love with all her heart – and she’ll never be able to do that unless she can finally get over her first love.

Lukas North is determined to reclaim the love he threw away over ten years earlier, and begins his campaign by sending flowers daily to Margaret. He realizes that she may need more time to recover from losing her husband so he’s determined to let their relationship develop slowly—but letting her go is not an option.

When the position of principal opens up at a Solsta school, Lukas goes after it wholeheartedly, but keeps it a secret from Margaret in case it doesn’t work out.

Can their budding relationship be built on anything less than complete honesty?

Happy writing my friends!

New Beginnings

The beauty of God's creation is amazing! I've decided to rewrite one of my stories to submit as an inspirational. Even as I was writing it originally, I wanted to let God lead but I fought to do it my way. Well it was rejected I'm happy to say because now it can be what He wants me to write, not what I was writing to suit someone else. ...a few small changes and it will be ready to submit.

Pray that this time I get it right!

Here's a little peek at Daffodils:

Lukas watched Margaret step around him…his Megs. God, he wanted to hold her, to wrap her in his arms and cry with her for all she had lost, for all they had lost. She looked brittle, like fine crystal that might shatter with too much pressure. Dear Lord, give her the strength to get through this. Please take away this burden of grief she carries. It’s gone on long enough, Lord. Help me to be the friend I ought to be, and if it’s your will Lord, please heal the pain I caused her so long ago.
