Being an author is like being a pregnant mother. You don’t know what to expect when the baby/book is born. You constantly wonder if you’re ready to be an author/mother. You think about all the time it will take to take care of this baby/book. Instead of diaper changes and feedings in the middle of the night there are blog posts to write and book signings. Even an author has sleepless nights of turning and wondering if you’ve made the right decision. Believe me I’d rather give birth to a book than a baby. All in all it’s less painful. The only thing that’s different for me is instead of thirty-five minutes of labor, I had months writing and waiting on the book. But the book/baby is beautiful. Maybe only in the eyes of the mother/author, but it’s still beautiful.
This has been a different birth, because Pam Watts Harris and I delivered at the same time. We co-wrote the book. That’s a little different almost like having twins but a lot less painful. The delivery date is today and the birth was right on schedule. With all of that said, Pam and I would like to present to you our new baby, Smoky Mountain Brides. You may visit/purchase this baby at amazon.com/…book/dp/B075QQLKW6/ref=sr_1_1 at the ridiculous low price of $12.99. The ebook is $2.99.
Kyla Porter and Becki Hunley had been friends since childhood. They had gone to church and school together and had graduated from the University of Tennessee. They parted ways when Becki moved to Nashville to enter the country music field while Kyla continued her education in veterinary school and eventually moved to northern Mississippi to practice veterinary medicine.
Scarred by a tragic ending to a relationship, Kyla finds it hard to trust any man, even the handsome teacher she meets at Graceland, who seems too good to be true. Becki finds the perfect man for her, a handsome doctor she meets at church, and both she and Kyla become engaged within a few months of each other. They had always dreamed of being each other’s maid or matron of honor when they married, but their plans are in jeopardy when their wedding dates are in conflict. Will they be able to solve their dilemma, or will their dream die?
