Before you read my post below, feel free to let your gaze linger on the man to the right.
This is Sam. Hot, isn’t he? ;)
I won’t go into details, but trust me, he has just experienced a life-changing event and is still reeling from it. You couldn’t tell by looking at him, though, could you? Anyway, on to my regularly schedule blog post...
I’m due in two weeks!
No, I don’t have a deadline two weeks from now. As if that’s what you were thinking! ;)
And, no, I’m not expecting a baby.
Or am I?
All right, I may not be the first person in the universe to compare publishing a book to having a baby. But the truth of the matter is, A RANCHER’S PRIDE, my fourth Harlequin American Romance, will be hitting bookstores shelves soon (and is already available online), and it’s not much of a stretch to say I feel as though I’m welcoming a child into the world.
~~~Warning! Pun Alert~~~
...I conceived the idea for this story, carried it with me for months, labored over the manuscript, and am eagerly awaiting its delivery. And I know, once it makes its first appearance in the world, I’m going to feel extremely happy and proud.
Baby or not, it seems like—and is to me—a very special event.
I’m sure many authors know the feeling and many mothers do, too.
Speaking of mothers... My next post here at the blog will be past the date to wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day, so let me do that in advance.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
To get us ready for the upcoming holiday, I’d love to hear about your best, most touching, or funniest Mother’s Day memory ever—whether you play the starring role or the honor belongs to another mother you know.
All my best to you,
Barbara White Daille
