Merry Christmas everyone, even though I'm a few days late. My family had the wonderful blessing of sharing Christmas in the mountains of Tennessee with my parents. It was an amazing time of sharing memories and making new ones. Our cabin was on the Little Pigeon River and we listened to it's rushing waters continuously day and night. As my parents age, I've learned to appreciate every moment I have with them. I also cherished the time my children, now nearly grown and on their own, got to spend with their grandparents.
I hope your Holidays were just as cherished as mine.
In the near future, I will be posting another chapter in the Fan Fiction I'm writing at this time and finishing it up shortly. There should be some news later in January on Drifting Sands as well. I am well into writing the next installment of Justin and Marcus's story at this time, Crashing Waves. Two more characters are starting to develope in this story line and there could very well be a third book in this series. I also have another paranormal story in the outline stages. 2014 looks to be a very busy year for me and hopefully some new books for you to read as well.
Look for me to continue to review and post new books that I come across that I think you may find as a good book as well.
A toast to you and yours for the New Year and thank you for spending time with me in 2013!
Happy New Year!

Please check out Yesterday's Kiss by Carly Fall. This is one of the sweetest, saddest, wonderful stories I've read in a while. Though it is short, less than 100 pages, it is packed full of an emotional roller coaster that I am sure you will enjoy. I highly recommend this story. You can check out my review on amazon.com.
Check out the blurb and except below, as well as the links to where you can purchase it and learn more about Carly.
Is she really encountering her one true love from the past?
When Maggie Ramos signs her divorce papers, she’s determined to start a new life free from her ex-husband’s verbal abuse and unfaithful behavior.
As a new start and celebration, Maggie decides to take a trip to Bisbee and Tombstone, Arizona. Because of her fascination with history, the two places have always captivated her with their rich pasts.
During a tour of the Copper Queen Mine in Bisbee, Maggie’s encounter with a miner named Joseph leaves her questioning her sanity. Claiming that he is her dead husband from the past, he is determined to prove to her that their love was real. He takes her on a journey vacillating between the present and the early 1900s, leaving Maggie to wonder if her psyche is shattering, or if she is really encountering her one true love from the past.
Does true love transcend death?

She jumped and stepped back, putting a hand over her heart. The miner she had seen earlier stood before her, and now that he was closer, a strong feeling of recognition overcame her. She tried to remember where she knew him from, but the information eluded her.
“I’m sorry,” she said. “Do I know you?”
The man smiled, his teeth bright against his dirt-stained skin. She guessed his age at twenty-five or so as he took off his hat and ran his fingers through a mop of chin-length black hair. His light blue eyes twinkled as he smiled. “It’s me, Joseph. I’m shocked that you’re here. I knew you’d come back, Margaret.”
Why was he calling her Margaret? The last time someone called her by her given name she had been in line waiting to be summoned by the worker at the DMV.
A cauldron of emotions swept through Maggie, and she took another step away from him. Her heart raced as she tried to put a name on the feelings: uncertainty, excitement, relief, fear, and . . . something else she couldn’t pinpoint. For the life of her, she couldn’t place where she knew this man. However, it was obvious he was very pleased and seemed excited to see her.
“I’m sorry, but it’s just not coming to me. Where have we met?” she asked.
“Margaret, I’m your husband, Joseph. Please try to remember,” he said.
Her husband? What he said resonated as truth deep within Maggie, and she felt the urge to run, but something held her there, standing in front the miner. She shook her head. Obviously, this man . . . Joseph . . . had her confused with someone else.
“I wasn’t sure it was you until you smiled at me,” he said, “but then I knew. Only you could smile at me like that and light a fire within my heart.”
Maggie swallowed, trying to wet her throat so she could set this guy straight.
“I’ve been waiting for you for so long, Margaret. I’m so happy to see you."
