Sorry for the delay! Victoria is uploading as I type!!!
I want to thank all of you for your continued interest, help, suggestions and support. Judy, Sally, Julie, Fern and Susan, I couldn't have done it without you.
Victoria and Lucas are close to my heart and I hope you enjoy reading about their journey as much as I did writing it.
Where has the time gone? So much has happened since I last posted that I don't know where to start.
Victoria is nearing completion and I am planning on releasing her in late November.
Wray and Kim are still working through thier problems so it's looking more like January, sorry.
In November I was the featured author in S.E. Smith's newsletter and it ROCKED!

I want to thank everyone that has emailed me or commented here, I've tried to respond to all of you and hope you'll forgive me if I missed you.
From Victoria's Challenge:
Victoria looks back at her plate, he’d made her snowman pancakes that morning, the morning the Earth was destroyed.
“You need to remember, time’s running out.” Standing Jacob walks to the back door of the cabin and Victoria suddenly realizes that’s where she is, in the kitchen of the cabin. Standing she goes after her grandfather but when she reaches the door all she sees is devastation.
“Grandpa! Grandpa! Where are you?”
First of all I want to thank everyone for posting to my site and your encouragement. A special thanks to Judy for her continued support with all my questions. To Amanda, yes I've signed up on Goodreads and to Fran in the UK for your support.
It's been an amazing week, full of ups and downs, the good and the bad but that's what makes life, well life right?
October has to South Dakota and currently I'm sitting at home under a tornado watch...what the...and the other side of the State has three feet of snow. You know what they say, at least in South Dakota, "If you don't like the weather wait a few minutes, it'll change." And it will.
Wray and Kim are struggling with much more then the weather but they will work it out, it just takes time.
Victoria is at the Editor!!!! Yes!!! I'm so excited!!! I'll let you know if I still am when I get the changes. Sorry Laura.
Have a great weekend!
Hello! Thank you for visiting my new site. For all of you that helped me not only build it, but tell me I needed one and give me the courage to do so...Yes Judy I'm talking about you!!!!
Judy is one of the many of you that emailed me after Grim was published telling how much she liked the book, edit problems and all and that she thought I had talent.
I'll be honest with all of you, I thought I'd gone through the proper channels for the editing. I'd tried to find an editor but with no luck, new author and all.
I tried to find help on a few boards, no offers.
No, I knew no other authors, no beta readers(never heard of them) so I took the leap and hit 'publish' on smashwords. And told no one. That was Cassandra....
Then Grim came along. Same process. Same results but low and behold, I started getting sales and reviews and emails, what the...
From nearly the beginning there were comments on the grammar and editing, some very nasty, including emails.
I looked for help on a few boards that shall remain nameless seeking help and to be honest am surprised I didn't slit my wrists at the harsh comments, yes some were that bad.
But then people like Judy emailed me, encouraging me, telling me about an editor she'd just found and liked, about how I really needed a domain and webpage and...it goes on and that was her FIRST email!
And more came in from so many of you! And I realized that just like in life there are those that would rather tear you down then help you up. So I ignored them and continued to write.
Yes, I will probable always need a proof reader and editor (maybe even in my blogs, which I'm just learning how to do) because my fingers don't always type what I think they do. So I'll apologize right now.
Now on to updates:
Victoria's Challenge is at the editor! Yes a real one! Thank you again Judy!
I am hoping for a November release but since this is my first 'official' edit please be patient.
Wray is in process. Can I throw in a teaser...the cover, by Judy Bullard at email@example.com, is AWESOME. Yes she did Grim and Wray is his brother...
That's all I'm going to give right now until the story is closer to completion.
Best wishes to all of you and keep reading, no matter who it is because we all have stories to tell
