A huge thank you!!

A huge thank you to friends and family who've helped get the word out about my second release Courting the Doctor's Daughter!

My cousin Cathy sent me a picture of her with my book in a Wal-Mart store. Love it! Thanks, Cathy. Hope you enjoy Courting the Doctor's Daughter.

So many of you have passed along bookmarks to friends and family, even sticking them in my books on store shelves. I'm waving at Judie Oberheuser in Texas for all the efforts she's made to publicize my books. And to Pam in AZ. Whether you passed out one bookmark or a 100, I'm grateful.

If you enjoy my books, tell others. That's the best way to create buzz.

God has blessed me with wonderful people in my life, but one particular person has made the biggest impact on my writing. Thanks to Shirley Jump, my dear friend, a wonderful writer and critique partner who's taught me so much about craft.

Blessings, Janet

Happy Memorial Day!

I hope you're enjoying a lovely Memorial Day holiday with family and friends. Take a moment out of the day to remember the men and women who lost their lives serving our country. And for those serving now. Because of the sacrifices they made, we live in freedom.

Blessings, Janet

This is the last book set in Noblesville, IN. A huge thanks to David Heighway, Hamilton County's Historian, for your help with my research and to Diane Nevitt of the Hamilton County Historical Society who showed me around the museum.

And a special thanks to my daughter who rallied her fabulous friends and shared this special evening with me.
