I've been writing non-stop, but none of it has been for the blog. I entered a contest and to my utter shock, I made it into the final round. Last night at 9:30 p.m., I hit "send" and a full manuscript is now in an editor's hands.
I may be sick.
But the best way not to think about an editor with a big red pen is to read and write - a LOT! Which is exactly what I plan to do!
Let's kick things off with a book I thought I'd reviewed a couple of months ago, but didn't.
If you like romantic suspense, historicals, and, like me, are always on the lookout for a way to support a local writer, then Beneath a Navajo Moon by Lisa Carter is the book for you!
(Lisa's from Raleigh and as far as I'm concerned, any Carolina girl is a local).
In Beneath a Navajo Moon, Erin Dawson is a cultural anthropologist. She's hoping her internship at the Cedar Canyon Information Center will help her fulfill a personal mission to uncover the story behind one of her adopted ancestors, Olivia Thornton, a white woman who served at a mission on the Navajo reservation in the early 1900s.
Her search leads her to butt heads with tribal policeman Adam Silverhorn. A man who turns out to be far more complex than his shallow, womanizing ways lead her to originally believe.
As Erin digs deeper, she has no idea that her search for Olivia will uncover a dark secret that threatens her life and the lives of those she loves.
Beneath A Navajo Moon kept me guessing with complex characters who struggle to make the right choices in difficult circumstances.
For someone like me who loves a great historical, but also loves a great contemporary suspense, this was the best of both worlds.
Check it out. And if you read Beneath a Navajo Moon, be a friend and leave a quick review on Amazon, would you please? Authors really appreciate reviews and it only takes a few minutes of your time to bless them in this way!
Grace & Peace,
