Well, it’s that time of the year again. We all seem to be so busy, but this year I’m taking time to enjoy the important stuff like family, faith, and friends. And the fact that I have a writing contract. That always lifts my spirits.

I'm excited about my March 2009 release, The Sheriff of Horseshoe, Texas. It’s part of the Men Made In America Series. I received my cover the other day. (It should be to your left if I clicked the right buttons.) Before I look at my new covers, I close my eyes for a second. What I‘m really doing is praying for the best cover ever and bracing myself to accept what I see on the screen. I take a deep breath and open my eyes. Boy, did I get a surprise. It was perfect—just as I had the hero pictured. Kathleen and the art department are doing a fabulous job with the American covers and I hope you’ll agree. Take a peek and let me know what you think.

Wishing you a happy holiday season. May you enjoy the things that are important to you.

Oh, I love that cover, Linda. Very cool.

And I hear you on enjoying the fact that you have a writing contract. Considering all the bad news in the economy, I was thrilled to sell two more books to American a couple of weeks ago. Yay!

I think the cover is great!

Gd to hear that you have a writing contract...

And, Trish, way to go - glad you will still be putting out some books.

Being a writer (published) and a reader - I find that in times of economic stress - a lot of things get pushed by the wayside...

But, for me and a lot of others - books (especially paperbacks and good quality writing) are something we hang on to - maybe because it isn't a huge expense but yet a little luxury we can grasp and hold on to.

Congratulations on selling two more books to American. It's a wonderful feeling in this economy. We'll be working. Yay!

Linda Warren said...

Thank you. I love what you said about books--it isn't a huge expense but yet a little luxury we can grasp and hold on to.
That is so true. Buy American--It's the best entertainment you can get for $5. I think I'll put that on my computer.
Happy Hoildays.

Wow, what a stud on your March cover! Love the horse and the colors, too. I agree--the covers for the American line have been terrific lately!

Way to go Trish and Linda and I certainly agree with Sara on books being one luxury we can afford. I love the cover of "The Sheriff of Horseshoe, Texas". And I bet I'm going to love the story as well.

Really nice cover!

Jennifer Faye said...

Wow, Linda, awesome cover. Love the whole thing. Can't wait to read it.

The best thing about books is you can enjoy them any time you want, anywhere you want. Like a very cold winters night tucked under the warm covers. *G* They are well worth the money. Besides it's the cheapest form of travel you'll find and the places you can visit between the covers of a HQ are almost limitless.

Linda Warren said...

Thank you. I was happily surprised. I loved everything about this cover. And yes, the guy was a big plus.

Linda Warren said...

My Texas friend, right? Thank you. I looked at that cover several times a day when I first got it. I'm still loving it and really hope the story lives up to the cover.

Linda Warren said...

Thank you. There's just something about cowboys.

Linda Warren said...

Jennifer Faye,
You're so right. I never go anywhere without a book. When people say they don't read, I'm like what--what do you do on rainy day or a lazy afternoon or a winter's night? I love getting lost in a book and meeting new people and visting new places.

And since it's the season, remember books made great gifts.

Thank you about the cover. I think it's awesome, too.

Ellen said...

Yes Linda I'm your Texas friend. And you know I love books set in Texas.

Linda Warren said...

Hi Ellen,
I was right. Yay! And yes, we love those books set in Texas.
