Woot! It’s a happy Monday. 🙂 I got the email today from Siren that they’ve accepted my latest submission, Hope Heals (mfm, contemporary, funny LOL). No firm release date yet, just a September/October range. I’ll let you know when it’s assigned a release date.
For a preview, you can go to this WIP Wednesday post about it. (Not many books I get to use the phrase “killer goat posse” in them. LOL)
Don’t have the blurbs ready yet, but the short version is that after the death of her husband in a auto wreck that nearly killed her young son, too, a woman has to move back home to Florida from New York. And while you can go home again, sometimes it’s not the same as you remember. Like the fact that her widowed father now has livestock that have seemingly conspired to either kill her or drive her crazy. Maybe both. And her next door neighbors are the hunky Hope cousins, who she’d secretly lusted after in high school.
I’m sure you can suss the basics. 🙂
Now to the Hubby pimpage. (No, not like THAT.)
Hubby is also a writer. And he’s going to be self-publishing his first book, writing as Jon Dalton, titled Dancing on a Tightrope. It’s a mystery series centering on main character Wolf Mallory, who’s retired military and now a PI living in coastal southwest Florida. Think Mickey Spillane meets Travis McGee. (And Hubby even let me borrow Wolf to be a secondary character in one of my mysteries that I’m going to self-pub, too. LOL)
I did the cover for him, and yes, expect further pimpage from me about the book once it’s released. 🙂 We’re in the editing phase at this point.
And also, yes, if you’re wondering about the pen name… LOL Actually, “Dalton” came from him picking it first, years ago, when he first started writing the book. I wanted a pen name that, in part, matched his. So I made up “Tymber” and used Dalton. 🙂
(OMG, yes, we are SOOO “that” disgusting couple who’s still in love sixteen years later and does gooey sweet stuff like that. LOL)
This book actually holds a special place in my heart. We originally met on the Novels-L critique list on the Internet Writing Workshop. I was doing crits of this book for him, and he was critting my earlier version of Red Tide. Eventually, we met in person at a writing conference and it was love at first sight. 🙂
