Winners announced and their comments brought me to tears--good tears! Thank you, Readers!

If you are familiar with RaffleCopter, you know they give contestants several ways to win. I gave readers an easy way to win that I thought would also let me know they read Book One without making them jump through hoops. What I got back in response brought tears to my eyes.

Here are seventeen of the comments left by readers of She Belongs to Me who wanted to win a copy of Split Decisions. What lovely readers I have. They make what I do worth the fifteen-hour days. J

Jo R: The story kept my interest! The love scenes were just enough without going overboard lol, I am so glad that you did a sequel as I have often thought about what happened with Jayne and Jordan. Hopeless romantic that I am!!

Wendy N: The love, suspense everything couldn't put the book down now that I see that you have Split Decision coming out, I can't wait to get it. I have been looking every day.

Tessa J: I loved everything about this book. I love the story & I enjoyed that it wasn't one of those raunchy sex novels. I couldn’t put it down! I would love to win.

Jennifer M: I loved the intense love that they shared and that Jordan never gave up on her. I want split decisions because I bonded with both characters. And I want to continue with their journey.

Cristina A:  Because it rocked and I KNOW SD will rock too!

M.J. K: Because I loved the way the opening of SBTM hooked me and kept me guessing until the end!

Amanda: For sure the who-done-it aspect, I didn't have it easily figured out. Excited for Split Decisions because I love to read Rom Suspense!

Amy R:  I enjoyed the suspense in SBTM as well as Jordan. He wasn't your typical hero, but one that was more "real" than most.

Kerry:  I loved how the book opened up with Jaynee getting shot and went back in time from there. I loved seeing their relationship from the beginning stages.

Marie D:  The genuineness of the male lead

CM: I liked the suspense and in particular the ending.

Arianne S: I love mysteries! Jordan and Jaynee were two interesting & mysterious characters so I want to read more of their lives.

Phuong P: Loved the suspense surrounding this couple. I want to see what happens next.

Ruthie: I like it that Jaynee finally found a man who truly loves her after what she has been through.

Terry G:  I fell in love with YOU!!! Oh..I mean your I mean YOU!!!

Diana D:  Unfortunately and regretfully, I actually have not read 'She Belongs to Me' (so sorry). It's been on my Kindle for awhile now, just haven't gotten to it. I would like to win 'Split Decisions' because even though it's not technically a series, I love it when books that relate to one another.

Lynda D: I love the cover, and I love the way the cover of the new book complements it.

"As in any fairytale, everything good must come to an end." ENTANGLED DREAMS:

Now, if you’ve read any of my novels or excerpts, you know I don’t do happy-go-lucky beginnings; and as in any fairytale, a little rain must fall, or in the case of my stories, I prefer a monsoon. This week’s excerpt: But alas, as in any good fairytale, everything good and wonderful must come to an end. After the tragic accident that snatched her mother away from Alexandra, her father moved them away from the beaches of Destin to another beach in Florida. Cocoa Beach. Cocoa Beach was loud, the water murky, and there were no weekend adventures as there had been in Destin. Her father married her evil stepmother, Lilith, who Alexandra was certain was a witch with her long, black as midnight hair and pale-white skin as if she’d never seen sunlight. Her father had admitted he wasn’t in love with Cruella, as she had come to think of the witchy woman, but that he’d wanted Alexandra to have a mother and siblings. Well, she definitely got that. The k

To prologue or not to prologue, that is the question. Readers, please weigh in!

Personally, I love prologues. They get you right into the action whether it was in the past or something exciting that is to come. But that’s exactly why most agents’ blogs I’ve read say not to use them. Paraphrasing…“If you need a prologue, then your story must not be strong enough…” Hmm … well, I like them, and I use them. But I’m curious what readers think, and I’d love you to weigh in. AND, if you have some great examples, please leave the title in the comment section. Now … here’s what I’ve noticed. Plenty of bestselling books have used them, even though they aren’t always called prologues . Same diff in my opinion. My biggest example is ‘Twilight’. If that little blurb wasn’t in the beginning, I don’t think I would have made it through the first chapter. How about movies? I don’t watch a lot. But I’ve started to notice how many have “prologues”. I also don’t have cable, but I have NetFlix, and hubby has just started watching ‘Breaking Bad’. Okay … I

The rule of thirds: No matter what you do, someone will hate you. Get over it and Write On!

No matter what you do in life, a third of the people will love you, a third will hate you, and the rest will be indifferent. Get over it and Write On! Yes, I'm talking to myself. If you're listening, GREAT! It's good advice! Is it easy advice? Heck No! For some reason, even though that percentage is rather low on my books--the percentage of people who hate my books runs about 4.6%--it still hurts.  Note: I only averaged the 'firsts' in my books, the books I actively promote. Because if I go to the second, third, and fourth books in my series, those numbers drop drastically. Obviously, if readers don't like my first book, they don't go on to the rest of my books in a series, so those books receive little to zero one-star reviews. So...if the number of one-star reviews we receive is less than five percent--Thank God ALL of the 33 1/3% of the haters don't write reviews--why do we get so depressed when we receive a one-star review
