Today marks the official release of my debut novel THE WELL OF TEARS: Book One of The Dream Stewards. It was a long time coming – 10 years since the first draft was completed. All the struggle, sacrifice, and just plain hard work has finally paid off, and I am taking the entire day to revel in the accomplishment. And that is a big deal considering I am a mere 90 days away from the deadline to deliver Book Two!
So far I’ve had breakfast in bed, hung out in my PJs until well after lunch, and spent several hours watching my Amazon sales rankings climb. Yet to come is dinner with friends, followed by a champagne toast with my husband. I’m sure I’ll manage to find time for chocolates, and a pumpkin spice latte somewhere along the way. These are some of the little luxuries a writer foregoes when working under contract – so while it may not sound like much to you, I am loving every minute of it.
But wait, there’s more! So that the rest of you can also partake in my celebration of this momentous occasion (aka the day every writer dreams of), I am sponsoring a number of book and goodie giveaways around the web. I’ll be adding more events to the list over the next few weeks, so be sure to check back here, on my website, or on my FB fan page for updates!

Congrats on your new release! I love the cover–the cover designer at our publishing company (Madison Street Publishing) even pointed it out to me as an upcoming release cover that she really liked. And thanks for the giveaways–I am entering to win!
Thanks Rosanne!! I’m really proud of the cover – the design team did an amazing job. Good luck with the giveaways :).
