Thank You For The Great Release Party

It's been great sharing my new release all day here at the Party Pavilion.  Destiny Redeemed has had to wait a long time for its release.  Completed and through first edits by the end of March, I made Amon and Thea wait until now because my Victorian Erotic Romantic Trilogy novellas took center stage all summer.  Now that they've had their time, it's the novel's time at last. 

I began writing Destiny Redeemed almost a year ago, right around Thanksgiving. By the end of February, I was finished with the book and had to type it. (I hand write everything, so even when a story seems complete, it's just beginning in one way!)  By the time I was finished, destiny had something different in store for me.

In the dedication to the book, I explain that some characters are the type that get into your head and don't leave.  Amon is one of those characters for me.  From the moment he came into being, he demanded his story be told. Bigger and badder than most of my heroes, he just wouldn't fit into a mold and every time I wanted him to, he pushed back against me.

Writing Destiny Redeemed was truly a labor of love for me.  I had wonderful characters I loved and a story that I believed in.  For me, there's nothing like a flawed man whose greatness threatens to undo him.  And I'm a sucker for a heroine who is sweet and sexy with a little bit of tough in her. Surrounding these two is a secondary cast of characters who range from the best the world can offer to some very bad men who will stop at nothing to hurt the hero and his heroine. I'm happy to finally be sharing all of them with the rest of the world. 

Thanks again to everyone who came by today. :) Remember to comment for a chance to win a copy of the book.  One commenter will win.
