Happy New Release Coming & Goodreads Giveaway ~ Be sure to sign up!

Welcome to our Sweet Romance Reads blog! Happy 2017! I hope the new year will bring you and your loved ones health and happiness. For me, personally, it will be a big year. Two of my big 2017 events are the release of two new novels, THE HAPPINESS IN BETWEEN and THE MEMORY OF BUTTERFLIES. THE MEMORY OF BUTTERFLIES will be out in July, but THE HAPPINESS IN BETWEEN (women’s fiction with romance and suspense) releases on the last day of January. JANUARY 31ST! It’s almost here! [Happy Dancing!]

Authors will tell you that releasing a new novel is both exciting and terrifying. In this case, I’m especially excited because I love this story. I grew up as that good, obedient daughter who wanted to please her parents and teachers, and also as a late bloomer—a girl who was smart in school, but never in sync with her peers. One basic truth of growing up is that a person who doesn’t have a sense of who they are, their own worth, even if their self-knowledge is imperfect, are prime pickings for those who victimize. 

THE HAPPINESS IN BETWEEN, via the main character, Sandra Hurst, tells the story of how some take longer than others to figure out their future and sometimes need a few extra chances, and that confidence isn’t something that comes naturally to everyone. It takes hope and courage to face your life and make (or remake) your future. 

I hope you’ll read THE HAPPINESS IN BETWEEN and enjoy it. 

If you order now, before the official release, you’ll get Amazon's lowest price guarantee and it will be delivered directly to your ereader on 1/31! Same with the print book, or the audio version. You’ll get the lowest price and the book will ship right after release.

Important: There is a **GOODREADS GIVEAWAY** for THE HAPPINESS IN BETWEEN. Do you use Goodreads? If not, this is a good time to start. Get details & sign up here:
