Happy 5th Anniversary to me!

Today is a very special day. Five years ago I published my first book, A Father’s Sins. I still remember how nervous/scared/anxious I was. Would anyone bother reading it? Would they like it?

At the time, I couldn’t imagine writing anything other than the planned sequel, Finding Their Way. However, reality and an overactive imagination took over and I’ve written so much more. Whatever happened to Finding Their Way? I’ve written and finished it twice. I didn’t like either. Now, I am chipping away at it again out of shear determination. Let’s see how that works!

In celebration of today, I have discounted the eBook for A Father’s Sins for five days. It’s FREE in all Amazon markets. Yay!

Do I have anything else up my sleeve? Oh, yes! I’ll be posting my Work In Progress here – today. It’s a Christie Capps novella that is 3/4 finished so you won’t have long to wait until the end, which I will also post as soon as I finish.

Also, today is special for Jennifer. She published her first book four years ago today. Check out Jennifer Joy on Amazon for the deals and a new release that’s live as of this morning. It’s SO GOOD!!!

    Congratulations! I have the original paperback with the first cover of this book, and I did so enjoy it! Is there much difference with the ebook that is out there now? I was wondering how Bingley and Jane’s story is coming or is it waiting for the ‘Muse’ to kick in? Hope you, your mom and the rest of the family are well. My copy of Jennifer’s book downloaded this morning! Can’t wait to read it! Off to check out your work-in-progress!

      There aren’t many of those with the old covers out there, Carole. Other than a few grammar/punctuation corrections there is no change at all. Bingley is being difficult!!!

      I have total confidence in saying you will love Jennifer’s story, The Remarkable Miss Darcy. I’ve read it twice during the editing process. It does a perfect job of wrapping up the whole series while giving us the tale we need. I will warn you – Lydia Bennet is a hoot. And Darcy and Tanner are pure mush with their families. Happy reading!

    Congratulations on your five year anniversary on your first published book. I enjoyed reading it years ago. I will go check out Jennifer Joys’ book at Amazon.

  • J. W. Garrett

    Oh, Joy, Congratulations!! I have this book already and I am so excited for some other lucky person who can get it during this celebration special deal. Keep up the good work and I wish many blessings on you and Jennifer.

      Thank you so much, Jeanne. This has been an amazing journey filled with so many lovely stories to read. I’m grateful for every author brave enough to put their work out there. I can’t wait to read to the conclusion of your story with Nicole. Each scene takes my breath away. Well done, you two.

    I do have this book…but should really reread it. Congratulations on 5 years! Looking forward to your WIP.

    Many congratulations on your anniversary, Joy. And to Jennifer on her fourth, too! My goodness, the years go by so quickly, don’t they? Even though Bingley is being stubborn, I have to say that I don’t really mind, as what you have written in the meantime just keeps getting better and better!

    Now to go and check out your WIP.
