A New Inspiration

I came across a new inspiration recently, and I’d like to share it here before moving it up to my list of inspirations:

It always seems impossible until it’s done. – Nelson Mandela

I’ve posted this one on my wall where I’m forced to look at it every day!

My book 2 did seem impossible at times, but I am pleased, happy, and relieved to report it is now complete and revised/edited (by me) and will be off to my editor tomorrow.

In celebration, I read RULE’S BRIDE by Kat Martin, the third book in her THE BRIDE TRILOGY, and it was excellent.  Over the next few days I’ll be cashing in my Kindle gift cards to load up on some new books. In contrast to what most new writers want, I hope my editor doesn’t get back to me too quickly. I could use a few days off!

So, can you recommend any recently published books I should consider for my Kindle shopping spree? I should specify, ROMANCE books. And I’m not much into dark paranormal. Thanks!!!

Be Sociable, Share!

    Hi Wendy,

    Congrats on sending the second book to your Editor.

    Recently I read Kate Hardy’s A CHRISTMAS KNIGHT and Janice Lynn’s THE NURSE WHO SAVED CHRISTMAS. Awesome books! So emotional and lovely. Steamy stories. Medicals are a bit steamier now, don’t you think?

    Wendy, If you look me up there are a few that aren’t fantasy of mine on Kindle. You might like Shortcut To Love. It’s short, amusing and medical.

    I’ve just finished reading Magnolia by Diana Palmer but that’s more a historical romance 🙂 Loved it though!

    Hi Nas!
    I have Janice Lynn’s book on my list. It may even already be in my Kindle….if not, it will be soon!

    And I like a steamy read. My books lean in that direction!

    Hi Janet!
    I’ll have to check it out! Short, amusing, and medical sounds perfect for me!

    Hi Lacey!
    I enjoy historical romance. And I can’t explain why, but I like Diana Palmer. She typically writes needy, young heroines forcibly helped by not always nice, much older men. That scenerio does not appeal to me at all, and yet her writing is so good, I enjoy her books. I see Magnolia is a reissue. I’ll have to see if I’ve read it!

    I’m a huge Diana Palmer fan too but I’m also baffled to some extent lol. I guess that just goes to show you what you can get away with as a great, emotive writer 🙂 I bet you could too Wendy!

    Hi Lacey!
    I appreciate your confidence in me! I hope I don’t let you down!!!

    WoooHoo, Wendy on getting book 2 done! That has to be an awesome feeling. I think. 🙂

    I know, you said Romance, but I have to recommend Michael Connelly’s The Lincoln Lawyer. Not only is it a great story — I read it in 2 days — but it’s such a great example of creating sympathy for characters. I can’t wait to see the movie.

    Okay, a romance I will recommend is Amy Andrews’ latest: Rescued by the Dreamy Doc. It should be available on Kindle. I love her voice and the story.

    Okay, I’ve talked too much.

    Abbi 🙂

    Hi Abbi!
    You don’t talk too much!Thanks for the recommendations. I’ll check them out.

    HI Wendy, Am reading Call Me Irristable by Susan Elizabeth Phillips and am completely hooked. Love it! I also LOVE the quote you posted – I am stealing it to put on my computer.

    You know I took Call Me Irristable by SEP out of the library but returned it without reading it. I was busy finishing my book 2 and couldn’t get involved another book. I’ll have to try again.

    Glad you liked the inspiration. It’s one of my new favorites!

    I see Abbi has already recommended the most recent romance I’ve read that I thought was fab. I really love Amy Andrews’s books.

    How about India Grey’s latest? It has a racing driver hero and a truly romantic snowy mountain setting 🙂 Plus her writing gives me serious writer envy!

    Hi Joanne!
    I have Rescued by the Dreamy Doc on my list! I haven’t read India Grey. I’ll have to check her out!
