Ultimate Blog Party 2014: Welcome

 

bmini-8871

I’m so glad you stopped by. My name is Heidi and I’m a wife, mother of three boys, Jesus follower and lover of dark chocolate. I’m also a voracious reader, coffee consumer, and as of this year, a published author. This blog is my home base for musings on motherhood and word wrangling.

My debut novel, Unraveled, releases 4/29/2014 from Winslet Press. Woot! The designers at Tekeme Studios did a fantastic job with the cover. I can share a sneak peek with you here:

Here’s a taste of the back cover copy:

Blindsided by her unethical fiancee, Lauren Carter returns home to Emerald Cove, Alaska to help save the family’s floundering bed and breakfast. Blake Tully, wildly successful new owner of a whitewater rafting business, finds that Lauren’s reappearance in his life reignites old feelings. Although she broke his heart once, he longs to give his childhood sweetheart a second chance. Lauren’s spent years running from her scandalous past. When her shameful secret is revealed, Blake’s trust is shattered. Will Lauren allow her past to define her? Or can she accept grace and forgiveness and embrace a future filled with hope?ย 

I love reading your comments, so do take a minute to leave a comment and say hello. Share either the name of your favorite book or your favorite hero in a movie.

{My favorite children’s book is The Little House and for women’s fiction, Christy. My favorite hero is Sam played by Tom Hanks in Sleepless in Seattle}. ย

    Hi, Heidi! Love your book cover. I’m so sorry I couldn’t help with your April release. But I’ll definitely add your book to my summer reading. So fun to see you at the party. Thanks for visiting me!

      Renee, no worries at all about helping with the release of Unraveled. When I see all that you do for other launch teams, I can understand why you declined. Whether you realize it or not, you’re teaching me a lot about promotion and what it takes to launch a book. Believe me, I’m taking notes. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I do hope you’ll get a chance to read Unraveled in a less busy season. Thanks for visiting.
