Summer Journal 2013 - Entry #3

I'm heading off in a few moments to spend the day catching up with the Dads, but I thought I'd take a minute to do my weekly update. And that's all it will take, is one minute, since there's not much going on.

This week I sent of the second round of edits on This Feels Like Home to my editor. She received them and said she'd format and then send them back to me for one last look before sending them off to the line editors. She thought including the reader letter and blurbs at the end wouldn't be a problem, so that's good.

Between my initial version and the blurb committee, we did come up with a fabulous blurb for the book:

Can a danger-addicted cowboy and a safety-conscious urbanite ever see eye-to-eye?

When Chicago native Amber Winfield visits her aunt in Texas, she’s happy to absorb some local color—but dating a bull rider? That’s more cowboy than she’s prepared to go. As an accessibility consultant, she knows too well the hazards of extreme sports. Just one night with Jake Hawkins, though, and she’s captivated by the caring man underneath the cowboy swagger. But she could never fall for a man so intent on chasing danger…could she?

Jake’s got one goal—earn enough points to ride on the pro circuit—and he won’t let anyone stand in his way. Especially not a sophisticated city lady who thinks bull riding is crazy. Women like Amber are the reason he’s perfected the art of loving and leaving. So why can’t he get her off of his mind…or out of his heart?

I'm hoping a cover appears soon, because then I can get started on ordering some promotional items.

And yep...that's it for the week...

Until next time,

Happy Reading!
