A Wanted Man

Friday, Sep 01

The book is finished.
I had tears in my eyes at the end–I always celebrate, when I finish a book, but there’s some heartbreak, too. I feel like a mother, sending her children off to college all at once, letting them go, sending them out into the world on their own. I feel both pride and sorrow at the prospect.
Anyway, there’s another batch moving in soon–I’ll be starting the second book in my new romantic suspense series–“Deadly Deceptions”, after a short visit to my dad and stepmother in Grand Coulee. The first is “Deadly Gamble”, and you’ll be hearing more about that as the time to release it approaches–November of this year. And wait until you see the hot cover!
Which leads me to another subject. The books I’ve written this year–amazingly, there are four of them–are sexier than anything I’ve written in a long, long time. At the same time, they have a deeply spiritual quality. Go figure.
I had a letter from a dear woman who had read “The Man from Stone Creek”–twice. She was, however, offended by the love scenes. God bless her, she certainly has a right to her opinion, and I respect it. But, as Father Andrew Greely once said, when criticized for the love scenes in his books, the love between a man and a woman is but the palest reflection of the passion God feels for His Creation. You won’t find my heroes and heroines involved in promiscuous sex, because I believe that’s destructive. Sex is sacred, holy. But you WILL see more passionate love scenes in all future books.
I’m really taking the lid off.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
