We all have flaws.

You know, those things that annoy us about ourselves. Those things we wish we could fix.

The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron and *GIVEAWAY*

by Andrea Renee Cox

Has a book ever swept you down a river of emotion and elegance? Was there beautiful despair tossed in?

The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron not only took me down that river but sent me into an ocean of awe. The poignancy of the tale captured my interest from the first chapter and built layer upon layer of various emotions until I couldn't help but weep as I read.

Be My Guest: Camille Eide

by Andrea Renee Cox

On a couple of occasions now I have had the pleasure of copy editing manuscripts written by Camille Eide. Let me tell you a secret: Her novels have this sweet realness to them that is difficult to master as an author. I hope you'll give them a try soon. Welcome, Camille!

What If Inspiration Is Right Under Your Nose?
by Camille Eide

I can name the exact moment each of my novels were inspired.

My first novel came from a conversation about my American brother and my friend’s Norwegian sister who fell in love via email. How romantic for two people from different countries to fall in love over correspondence! Of course, characters and conflicts were added, but it was that conversation that sparked Like There’s No Tomorrow.

Triple Crown Winner

by Andrea Renee Cox

Kentucky Derby. Preakness Stakes. Belmont Stakes.

Three individual horse races for three-year old thoroughbreds. But when you add them up they equal the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing, the most difficult accomplishment to achieve in horse racing (at least in America). Few have attained the feat of winning all three competitions that are held in a five-week period. There hasn’t been a Triple Crown winner in 37 years. Not since Affirmed won in 1978.

Until this past weekend.

Another charming eNovella is now available to own. Can’t Buy Me Love introduces the new Destination Weddings series written by Beth K. Vogt. It’s the perfect way to kick off the series, if you ask me.

This bite-size book features dog groomer Bellamy Hillman, who has pinched pennies her entire life. She’s engaged to Reid Stanton, who has led a very privileged life. When Bellamy ends up with two wedding gowns, will their dreams of a Manhattan wedding combust before they even reach their destination?
