It’s getting close!

Have you ever had that feeling? You’re a mile from Gramma’s house and you can’t wait to get there? Or the flight attendants are securing the cabin for landing and you’re on your dream vacation? Or you’re closing on that house you’ve always wanted and the movers are coming? Or you’re ten months pregnant and you’re waiting for that first labor pain so you can actually hold that sweet baby in your arms? There’s much angst and excitement and nervousness in the anticipation of these events.

Well, I’ve been waiting a long time for this ‘baby’ to arrive. It’s not a visit or a trip or a move or a real baby, but to writers we often refer to our books as our babies because we tend them with such care and devotion as a mother tends to her baby. And so, my baby is ALMOST here! Just a few weeks until August 1st when it officially releases! And just like packing for a trip or moving or preparing for the arrival of a baby, there is much to do.

Today, I’ve posted an excerpt on my website! I hope you’ll take a look. This is not the usual first chapter of the book. But I hope you will enjoy it. A couple of weeks ago, I posted a different excerpt on my e-newsletter. So here ya go:

Just go to the book page on my website ( and click on Plain Fear: Forsaken. You’ll see the button to click on the left in red.

    Leanna, stay out of my journal, or I am going to raid your house and steal all your coffee.

    So much to tell…But, yes, amazing how Satan can slide the most appealing “things” into the deepest voids…and oh my!, but they look…and sometimes feel…good.

    I love you. Don’t make me take your coffee.

    Beverly, Sooo glad you liked the excerpt! It’s so scary to put my baby out there…it’s like saying, “So what do you think of my baby’s big toe? Ain’t it pretty?” LOL! To an author our books are our babies. So hope you like this one!

    Emma, Bless your heart! You have been! Thanks so much! Seems like it’s taken forever for this book, but then I realize how long this book sat in my head before I ever started to write it. Can’t wait!!!

    Jerri, my dear friend, if you have vampires in your personal journal then we are all in serious trouble. 😉 LOL! You don’t have to take my coffee, I’ll gladly share! We have to find a date and put it on our calendars.

    My2sons, When I first thought of that combination, I just laughed. But something about it nestled into my brain and took root and started to grow. The more I thought about and prayed about this book the more I had to write it. 🙂
