Very excited to have two new releases to announce! Ladd Christmas is book #6 in my Ladd Springs series. After traveling the globe on an extended honeymoon, Nick and Delaney Harris have returned home for Christmas. Eight months pregnant, Delaney can’t imagine being anywhere but Tennessee when she gives birth. Ladd Christmas reunites your favorite characters from the Ladd Springs series with a blend of crisis, faith and love…and new beginnings.
Not Without You is book #1 in my new and upcoming series, Silver Creek. Set in a fictional ski resort village against the wild landscape of the Rocky Mountains, each novel in my new Silver Creek series features a romantic adventure sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.
From the unspoiled beauty of alpine trails to the well-funded cobblestone streets of Silver Creek, these eco-minded heroines combat controversy, danger—even the unexpected romance—in their quest to empower those without a voice. Nature remains supreme in this bold and beautiful country. But is it true what they say, love can conquer all? When the human spirit is involved, anything is possible…
Battling a killer in high country and an undeniable attraction between them, grad student Lisa Richardson and Marine survivalist McIntyre Walsh must work together if they intend to get off the mountain alive in book #1, Not Without You.
After a fun start with my Facebook Release Party, I can’t wait to see how the New Year unfolds!
I find myself whipping through the holidays against my every intention to slow down and enjoy the moment. I want to consume the scent of evergreen–something we don’t get a lot of here in Florida–and linger in the beauty of the lights, the magic, the meaning of the season. My children have been counting the days, of course, hardly able to contain themselves as they anxiously await the big night. (Who knew there was something called Christmas Eve-Eve-Eve?) Thank goodness the actual day has arrived!
It’s a beautiful time of year, one we celebrate with friends and family, sharing our hearts and time, contemplating our blessings. It’s a time to give, a time to receive, a time to take stock in where we’ve been, where we’re going and what it all means. This year has been a whirlwind for me. I’ve completed my new series, Ladd Springs, releasing book 5 out of 5 later this month. It’s been exciting, exhausting, challenging and rewarding but well worth it. Now, I take time to breathe and simply “be” before continuing the process of marketing and brainstorming the next set of books from Dianne Venetta. (Does it ever end? ;))
Hopefully not. Hopefully, for as long as I’m living and breathing I will have the spirit of creativity in my heart, the passion that sustains me and gives back in the form of entertaining stories which provide escape and release from the everyday stress and strain of life. We all have busy lives. We live in a time where technology propels our minds at the speed of light and thrusts us from activity to activity, goal to goal. I, for one, am taking a breather. If only for a day, an evening, a moment, I’m jumping off the “merry-go-round” of obligation and duty and sitting calmly at home with my husband and children.
Trying to, anyway, and I hope the same for you. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and wonderful New Year. See you in 2014!
