Happy Holiday Weekend!

Happy-4th-of-July-2015

Happy July! I can’t believe the 4th of July here! I have so much fun stuff to share with you all on this Independence-Day weekend! I’m thrilled to reveal the amazing cover from Patricia Schmitt with PickyMe Artist for my upcoming Whisper Cove novel, SPIRIT FREED! Thank you all for the immense support you’ve given me and my Whisper Cove family! I’m excited to take you back to Whisper Cove with Dane and Abigail’s story (preorder coming soon).

SpiritFreed_Ecover_600x911

With their second chance at love threatened, lovers held prisoner by dark magic fight a spirit controlled by a sinister force…in book 5 of the Whisper Cove series.

 

Sworn off Dark Magic… Riiight

Dane Kershaw never let his ego stand in the way of duty and doing what is right. When the firefighter is injured in a horrific fire that nearly steals a precious child’s life, he sets his pain aside and rallies fellow wounded firefighters for a beach-side fundraising pin-up calendar…if only he can find a worthy photographer.

 

Only on one condition…

Freed from the wrong side of curses and spells, the last thing Abigail Haven wants is to reconnect with the thrill-seeking heartthrob…until Dane silkily summons her to Whisper Cove with a desperate plea: Photograph the calendar and help raise funds to save a little girl’s life.

 

But, when Abigail discovers Dane’s human image is degrading while his spirit image is becoming dominant both Abigail and Dane race to decipher the magical elements.

 

With their second chance at love on the line, will they survive descending into the world of dark magic or will embracing curses and spells be the key to setting their spirits free?

 

For Pre-Order, stay tuned… I’m targeting a fall release for SPIRIT FREED.

 

Next up….

In a couple of weeks I’m headed to the annual Romance Writer’s of America Conference! This year it is being held in San Deigo, CA.

Print is here!!! There’s such a wonder feeling of awe that comes from holding my books. Here’s Spirit Awakened in the full. Squee! The other books in the series are in the works and should be available for purchase by end of month.

May is such a special month for me. I’ll be celebrating family birthdays, Mother’s Day, and my favorite season, Spring. Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal. So, what better time to announce I’ve been working on a new series. Believe me when I say I’m biting nails having to keep the title, blurb, and cover secret for a little longer. Yes, I’m such a terrible tease, but I guarantee the waiting will be worth every single minute of pleasurable reading.😉

Return to Whisper Cove. For those of you who’ve asked (demanded…hehe), Dane will get his very own story and happily ever after. I’m targeting late fall 2016. So, inside book 5 of the Whisper Cove series, we will see return characters and face a whole new set of mystery, page-turning suspense and twist-turns and, of course, steamy romance to Excite, Empower, and Embrace. So, hold on to your seats…er, ereaders!

On the website front, in the next few weeks expect website changes, along with a wonderful monthly newsletter offer that includes a first peek at new works, excerpts, slices of my life, and a monthly drawing where winners have a choice to grab an autographed book of your choice from my Whisper Cove series, and much more.

That’s all for now. I hope May brings you lots of blessings. Oh, and don’t forget to grab your Free and Reduced priced digital copies of Whisper Cove.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! This is such an exciting and busy time of the year. Thankfully, I’ve had the opportunity to spend some quality time with my mom and sister. We had the most fun baking cookies and sharing them with family, friends and neighbors.

SnowmanFor me, it’s important to give something back during the holidays. Sometimes it’s easy for me to get caught up in all the frills of the holidays. This year, I participated in a fundraiser for a local family whose daughter has leukemia. Seeing all the people there giving their hearts and souls to help is the best present I could have received this holiday season (FB page: Prayers for Reece )

The exciting continuation of the Whisper Cove series follows with Mason and Katrina’s story….

Mason Jayme is rumored to be a healer and the one prophesized to save his hometown of Whisper Cove from an ancient Lover’s Curse. Until that curse is broken, however, he has no business taking a lover—a lesson harshly learned after Mason sleeps with his first love, Katrina Rendon. Believing he’s the reason Katrina was burned and scarred, Mason leaves Whisper Cove, rejecting any notion he can be good for anyone, let alone a whole town.

Katrina was far more devastated by Mason’s rejection than the injuries she sustained in a fire. She wants nothing to do with him—until her father falls ill, and the only way to save him is with Mason’s healing skills. When Mason returns to Whisper Cove, he promises not only to help her father but to help Katrina open her burn victim retreat. Once reunited, the passion between Katrina and Mason sparks higher than ever.

But, when Katrina’s soul is threatened by an Original Spirit who has claimed Mason’s body as his own, she’s caught in a whirlwind of spirit possessions and secret rituals. This time, Mason’s ready to risk death by fire in order to save Katrina and their love.

Happy Labor Day!

To Every Thing there is a Season

Wow…time flies! Seems like yesterday, I was stressing about finding a house after ours sold, worrying about my sons and praying they’d find direction in their lives/careers, and trying to enjoy family beach time celebrating Memorial Day with so many other things on my mind.

Three months later, here we are Labor Day weekend and the official close of summer. My youngest son is now a college freshman. Woot! The oldest son secured a surgical assistant position at a prestigious hospital. Once again, I’m a beaming mom!

And ready to share my light with you!

Best of all, my hubs and I finally bought a house and renovations are in the works to make the park-side house a home! It has been a long but thrilling process. I am a bit sad to leave my farm behind and especially my pigmy goats and chickens but, thankfully, the new owners love my babies and are going to keep them in the pastures they’ve always roamed.:). (Aren’t they adorable!!!)

image

Another shining moment of my summer was being named one of iBooks Rising Stars in Romance. It’s such an honor to be included with so many wonderful authors and have Spirit Released, Jake and Faith’s story, celebrated in such a way. (Winner of the drawing will be contacted shortly.)

As I head into this new chapter of my life, I’ve realized how important you all are to me. I’ve missed you. I’ve grown to understand life can be a struggle—a season that will pass—and a time that also has to be shared and not hidden away. I’m hoping to share more about me in the future.

Writing wise, I’m delving deeper into my latest hero Mason from my Whisper Cove series. The Whisper Cove series is very near and dear to my heart. I cannot wait to bring you all Mason and Katrina’s story, the fourth Whisper Cove book! I am almost finished writing their romance and itching to share it! October holds a lot of excitement for me. I’m looking forward to my annual writer’s retreat on the east coast where myself along with 10 other great friends and authors will be writing and swapping tales of our ongoing lives. Finally, on October 27th Mason’s book, Spirit Returned hits ebook stores! Until then, I will be jumping for joy and anxious with anticipation!

I’d love to hear about your favorite stories from the summer, hardships too, or what you are looking forward to this fall!

As always, happy reading!
Cyndi
