Hello! Over the last year I have been so blessed by meeting each of you. Now that the Stark Series is complete I will have a little more time to devote to the Stark Raving newsletter. I hope to put forth some great information and entertainment for you. Of course I have four current works in progress but I will post snippets in the newsletter as well as a release timetable.
Stark Resolution will be released on March 25th! A long time coming I know! I appreciate your patience, as we dealt with family health issues. Never in my life have I been so afraid as I was on the way to the hospital in December. In my years working in the emergency room I have stared into the face of death many times. I have held hands and offered comfort and love in many people's final moments. Compassion and empathy are what allows us to truly love our patients. But that night in December, looking into my husbands eyes, I watched beads of sweat drip from his gray face as his heart screamed for oxygen. I have never felt so helpless and afraid. I am thankful beyond words that he is safe home with us now. I am eternally grateful for our Christmas miracle.
It took me a while to be able to finish book three. I poured so much of that emotion into this final book and at first I just wasn't ready. I think you will see and hopefully feel it as you go through the pain and anger and joy. I am writing to you as an author, a mother, and the wife of an incredible soldier. I love this story. I believe in this story. I can't wait to share it with all of you.
I want to do a really big kick off for the release of book three. Today is the 1st day of March so we have 25 days to get ready. You are all a part of this. Together we can make this the biggest book release party ever. You guys are why I do this. The encouragement and love that I got from you brought me back to the pages. The story was begging to get out and you gave me the courage to finish it. I want to do a give away to get the party started just for you guys. Reviews make a book. Reviews : good, bad, and ugly are craved by authors such as myself. So I am asking you, for this giveaway, to review books one and two and I will send you an ARC of Stark Resolution. If you have not yet read them, never fear. I am making them $2.99 for the entire month of March and free on Kindle Unlimited. Please give your honest review. If you hate it I want to know! If you love it I want to know!!
Just Send me an email with the links to your reviews before March 20th and I will send you the ARC. Now here comes the fun part. Post your review of Stark Resolution on the release event page and invite your friends to the release party for a chance to win a $50 amazon Gift card.
