Either way, it’s a perfect time to curl up with a good book and here’s some brand new releases for you to enjoy! ❤

Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

Life is not boring!

You get a post from me twice this week! 😉 Although, it’s my pleasure and so easy to share the new Medical Romance releases.  I love doing that, my wallet does not…

So a lot of stuff has been happening to me since I last blogged and it’s been a bit of a struggle. I will admit, I’ve been struggling the last little while. It’s been a rough couple of years, but I’m still here and life certainly isn’t boring. It’s been rough, but I’m hanging in there.

I went to back to back conferences end of July and early August. RWA Nationals in NYC where I got to hang out with fellow medical authors Louisa George, Robin Gianna, Amy Andrews, Susan Carlisle, Scarlet Wilson, Janice Lynn and Denise Chavers!IMG_4812

It was my first time meeting Amy Andrews. We’ve talked online for years and I got to hang out with her, which is amazing. I also got to meet some of my favourite Harlequin authors including Reese Ryan who said “Damn, girl you ARE tall!” and Joss Wood who is an absolute hoot!

I also got to meet Becca Syme, who is an amazing speaker and knows me so well. I took her Write Better Faster Course on advice from a friend just after Mom passed. It was mind blowing and then I took her Strengths for Writers, again AH-MAZING. So when I went to her RWA session, I thought yeah she won’t know me. She did. She knew who I was and I got a hug, which made me cry…she’s been there through my whole journey of realigning myself.IMG_4757

I know I’m forgetting people, but all in all Nationals was amazing!

Two days after Nationals it was on to Ottawa for Romancing the Capital, which I’ve gone to for the last five years.

IMG_4825
Some of my favourite RTC authors! Eve Vaughn, Desiree Holt, Susan Hayes, Becca Jameson.

It’s on hiatus next year, as am I, because one thing I’ve learned in the last year since my mother passed is to take a break and I was facing burn out, big time!

The problem was, I got a call the morning I was leaving Ottawa that my father in law passed away unexpectedly. Ottawa is 6 hours from where I live and then where my father in law was, was another 2 hrs.

Since 2018, it’s been a steady stream of losses for my family. It’s been constant and on top of that I got a new editor, then that editor left and I got ANOTHER new editor.

I was staring down book #25 and thinking I can’t write this. This is a milestone book and how can I write this??

I worked for ever word and turned in a draft 10,000 words short. It was also the first book I was working on with my new editor. The first round of revisions were tough, but she knew what I was going through and she gave me such support about being able to write at all! I did the revisions and then within a day (man she’s a speedy reader!), second set with two deadlines. I opted for the earlier one, though I told her I was worried I wouldn’t make it because of my daughter’s 16th birthday and Ontario University Fair in Toronto (yes, my daughter has started looking at universities eek!).

But I got the revisions in and I’m happy to say that Book #25 Baby Bombshell for the Doctor Prince was accepted today.

AND I’m sharing my cover for my January 2020 release. that’s part of a duet with Susan Carlisle. Pregnant with the Paramedic’s Baby will be out in the new year (It’s book #24).

So, I guess the point of this rambling post is to not give up. Life doesn’t make it easy sometimes, but even if you feel like you’re struggling, that you’re failing, keep going! And know that I’m rooting for you! ❤

Summer Plans

Me again! I’m suffering through a sinus infection, but I’m here and I’m really looking forward to summer. I’m going to RWA in NYC in July and then I’m headed to Ottawa for one of my favourite Reader events Romancing the Capital, but also I’m looking forward to camping! Especially now that we’re the proud owners of this:

Resized_20190529_085707

I spent many happy summers as a kid in my parents Coleman camper. And I love camping, but haven’t been able to do a whole lot. It was fine when our kids were little and we were able to all fit in our tent, but as I get older and they get bigger, it wasn’t feasible.

And I missed camping.

So the DH and I have been talking about this step since we got married. We toyed with the idea of a more permanent trailer in a park, but the thing is we love travelling. We didn’t want an RV because first they cost $$$ and like a car depreciate a bit more than a tent camper or a travel camper.

We did start looking, but we’re overly impressed at the dealers with what we saw for our price range. Then my DH got word from a work buddy. He’d upgraded to a hybrid travel trailer and this was in our budget, in awesome shape and we were helping out a friend.

Resized_20190529_085828

It has a slide out. My parents didn’t. It also has heated mattresses and a furnace so we can camp right up until the Provincial Parks close in October.

Since, we were SO late starting a lot of the popular northern parks and our vacation time was already taken, so we’re doing some weekends. Next year we can do a week. And I’m already planning.

On the top of my list next year is Algonquin Provincial Park:

algonquin

Arrowhead Provincial Park:

arrowhead

And finally, Neys where famed Group of Seven artist Lawren Harris painted Pict Island from this park:

neys

This year our plan is just to stay close to home and we’re hitting Inverhuron and Point Farms.

So those are my plans for the next few summers. 🙂 It’ll be nice to unplug and relax. One thing I learned about travelling to Wood Buffalo in the summer of 2017 was that it totally recharged my muse being disconnected and being up north. We’re all looking forward to it and I’m looking forward to sharing this experience with my kids before they get too old. Best part, we can bring the dog!

What are some of your plans for summer? Or if you’re heading into your winter season, what did you do for your summer?

And if you’re going to be in NYC for RWA in July 2019 I would love to see you! I’m signing at the Harlequin Signing and the big RWA signing. 🙂

And if you’re going to Romancing the Capital in August 2019 in Ottawa, I’ll see you there too. ❤
