Looking Ahead to 2023
2022 has beena bit of a whirlwind--in writing and in other parts of my life too.
Once again I had three books scheduled to release ... and they all did! Destination: Romance came out in June, starting off my three-book Roadtrip Romance series. In September, I added another novella collection called Love in Any Season. And this month, my second Roadtrip Romance, Roadtrip for Two hit the market. Whew! Even though they were all several months apart, it still added up to be a lot. But in a good way.
This gives me a total of NINE releases now. I can hardly believe it. But what else have I done?
Behind the Story: Josh and Mama Hart
You've met the main characters of Roadtrip for Two, but how about some side characters? I mean, you've already met Katie and Skye in Destination: Romance, and they don't play a huge role in this story. Though Bree talks to Katie a few times. But there are a couple other characters you see. Some fun church people in Dallas. And then, Nathan's brother Josh, and Mama Hart.
You guys, as someone who never thought she wanted to write a series, I can't begin to describe my excitement over having the second book of a series release. It's so much fun. And just look at those covers next to each other!!! I am on pins and needles waiting to see what the third one will look like with Skye and Benjamin and Boulder in the background. But more about them later.
Because today, we're still focused on Bree and Nathan.
Behind the Story: Dallas
My last Roadtrip Romance book was set in several different areas, but this one is different. Roadtrip for Two isn't supposed to be a roadtrip at first.
If you remember at the end of the first book, Bree and Nathan's friends are talking them into taking their honeymoon cruise despite the engagement being called off. And they're not telling the other one, so it will be a surprise when they both show up on the same ship.
No one was expecting a hurricane to mess things up. So, when Bree and Nathan run into each other in the Dallas airport ... and get stranded by bad weather ... plans change.
Author Interview: Dulcie Dameron
Recently, I've joined a group of Christian Mommy Writers. In it, I'm discovering lots of new authors to me, like Dulcie Dameron. I can't wait to get to know her better right along with you. Her books sounds like lots of fun.
Dulcie, you say your love of writing goes all the way back to seventh grade. If you're like me, you have some stories you hope never see the light of day that were written way back when. Can you remember the premise of your favorite? Could you see yourself revamping it in the future?
I actually do remember the very first story I ever started writing about ten years ago, and though I remember some of the premise, I don't know that I actually knew where the story was going myself! Haha. All I knew was that it was going to be a single mom romance/police officer romance and YES, I actually do think about revisiting that story a lot! I just wish I still had access to it to take a look at how horrible my writing must have been, haha.
You live in a small town. How does it compare to the small towns in your books?
It's actually very similar to the town I describe in my books. River Hollow is loosely based off of my hometown and it's where I've drawn much of my inspiration from.
If you had to describe your books in one sentence, what would you say?
I'd say you'll find quirky characters, swoony kisses, and small-town vibes in each one.
Sounds great to me!

This is a place for me to tell you about what I'm writing, talk about the process or where some of my ideas came from, or even have other authors come in and talk about their books.
