A Release Day & Progress: ROW80 Update

First, I'd like to mention my fellow ROW80 writer, Juliana Haygert... today is the Release Day Blitz for her new NA Contemporary Romance, Her Heart's Secret Wish. For more information, please visit my book review blog here (there's also a giveaway).

But I at least wanted to share the cover and summary here...

Her Heart's Secret Wish Summary

With a renowned reputation as a player, she had everything figured out...

Twenty-year-old college student, Natasha is the life of every party and the reason behind many celebrations. The easiest girl on campus has all guys at her feet and more than a few in her bed.

... until he came into the game...

Having entered the academic world by chance, Professor Jason Stone is surprised to find one of his young students a huge temptation. The infamous Natasha has caught his attention. But is there more to her than meets the eye?

…and changed the rules.

As their unexpected friendship grows, so does their attraction to each other. When Jason’s Christmas plans are canceled and he ends up at the same party as Natasha, sparks flare, destroying the safe zone around them. Will they figure out how to break through their self-imposed barriers to be together, or lose one another forever?

Congratulations, Juliana! **throws confetti**

As for my A Round of Words in 80 Days update...

---> Depression Cookies follow up chapter
Made progress. I had a sick daughter home yesterday, and I found out my uncle had a heart attack (he's okay after a couple of stints). My brain was occupied, especially since my uncle was my first crush and he holds a very special place in my heart.

---> Editing
Progress. Still behind where I'd like to be, so my goal is to be back on schedule by Sunday.

---> Blogging
I posted here on Monday, To That or Not to That, and on Mom in Love with Fiction each day this week so far. I'm getting back in the groove.

I'm looking forward to the start of 2013 and reevaluating my goals and priorities, especially since I hope to publish TWO books in 2013.

Please stop by my post about Juliana's big release and leave her some comment love (or in the comments here). Happy 12/12/12!

Congrats on the release day!

I saw Juliana Haygert cover on several blogs and it looks like a good romance book. I wish Juliana much success with it!

And I think having your uncle home for Christmas is the best of gifts. Glad to hear he's getting better.

So happy about your uncle, and your continued progress...

I am hoping to publish a book of poetry in 2013....scary, and exciting.

I love reading about your progress, and hope your daughter is feeling better now.
