I just discovered my April 2013 release,The Bride Wore Spurs is available for pre-order on Amazon here. Can barely believe it! It's too early for a cover. I keep imagining different covers for this Texas set story but know Love Inspired Books will do a great job. I'll let you know when a cover is available. Just for the fun of it, I'm posting a couple of picture that I promise will NOT be on the cover.
I couldn't resist this huge spur photo opp in Fort Worth.
Or climbing on this longhorn bull with his 6-foot horn span. All in the name of research. :-)
The longhorns in my story are not such gentle beasts.

Janet grew up in a family who cherished the past and had a strong creative streak. Her father recounted wonderful stories, like his father before him. The tales they told instilled in Janet a love of history and the desire to write.
During their early years together, Janet and her husband found their church, joined Bible studies and developed a love of Scripture and a closer walk with God.
Teaching and rearing two daughters put her writing on hold. When she returned to her dream, Janet’s journey toward publication took nine exciting, sometimes painful years of learning her craft and dealing with rejection.
Today she spins her inspirational historical romance stories for Love Inspired Books.
