Happy Holidays - Francis Ray
I love this time of year. One of my favorite winter past times is snuggling up with a good romance book, pecan fudge and an ice cold Pepsi. Through the bedroom window I can see the blooming Camellias, Azaleas and roses. All the hard work I put into planting, pruning, and fertilizing fade and I can just enjoy my garden.
Writing is hard work as well, but just as enjoyable. I put your heart and soul into breathing life into characters readers can care about, and then I test the love of the hero/heroine so that at the end of the book readers will know that whatever life throws at them, their love will remain strong. If you read ONE NIGHT WITH YOU, Book # 3 in the Grayson Friends Series, I hope you'll agree.
ONE NIGHT WITH YOU was book # 42 for me, but the writing never gets easier. Hearing from readers that they enjoyed my book is my emotional payoff, just as watching the garden come alive with the brilliant colors is my pay off. Please look for IF YOU WERE MY MAN, Book # 6 in the Invincible Women Series coming March 03, 2010. By then it will be time to plant Spring annuals and perennials. The cycle of planting and writing will, hopefully, continue. Life is good.
