What a day!

First, to anyone out there who is an elementary school teacher, you have my admiration. Today I did another all-day field trip. And nearly returned home bald. It was THAT crazy. The coming, the going, the hustle, the bustle, the NOISE, the yelling and screaming, the weeping and gnashing of teeth. It was almost more than I can handle. Almost. But there were three things that got me through the day, two of which were my children. I went because I love them. Which is pretty obvious when you consider the conditions I had to suffer! And the other reason? Three years ago today, Intentions of the Earl became my first eBook! I have had A LOT happen since then: made my way up and down the sales charts, won awards, made the USA Today, met readers who love my books, met a few who didn’t, flown to multiple conferences and events to meet other authors and awesome readers and published 14 more books! Yes, in the last three years, I’ve had 15 books come out! Isn’t it awesome? I think so and because it all started three years ago today, I thought that such an event demanded something special: A PARTY!

So on Monday, February 17, 2014 from 7-9pm CSST, I’d like to have you and anyone else log onto Facebook and come join my party! Here’s the link (a cover image will be added when I have a chance to come up for air and make one).

All the good things that have happened to me these past three years wouldn’t have been possible with all of my readers and I want to thank you all so much for sticking by me. After having 15 books, there is bound to be at least one somewhere in the mix that you didn’t just love, but nonetheless I thank you all for staying with me on this journey! It has been extremely exciting.

Second, tonight, I’ll also be attending another Facebook party hosted by Darcy Burke to celebrate her newest release: Scoundrel Ever After. There will be several authors there doing blurbs and giveaways, come join us! My time is 7:45 EST. If you’re interested, anyone can join at this link.


Thank you all for your support, I appreciate it and look forward to many, many more years!

  1. I can’t believe it has been 3 Years!!! I think I’ve only known you for a year bt look at how far you’ve come!!! Eeeekkk~

    Bob will have a treat for you right? Oh, and happy Valentine’s Day!!

    1. Bob always treats me right, but an actual treat of ice cream is (was) certainly in order. It’s not every day that you can say it’s been three years since your first book came out.

    1. I have to be honest and admit that they’ve been in school for a good portion of the last three years. I did write my first five books with them at home though, which was a bit of a challenge–but a good one.

  2. Congrats, Rose! You’re very prolific, and I’m a little jealous. LOL. Seriously, You’ve done a great job not only getting lots of books out, but getting GOOD books out. Sometimes, when people write too fast, they don’t have good, well-edited books. But you have quality AND quantity. It makes me want to get on the ball. šŸ™‚ I’ll see you at the party if nothing happens to prevent it!

    1. Thanks! Oh, no need to be jealous. I think the key to success with a quality book for me comes with when I don’t feel it, I stop writing on it, or at least slow down or start from the top and re-read it to figure out what’s not working. I might like to hurry and get the next one done, but, I don’t want to put out a hot mess though, either.

      Thank you so much for all the support!

  3. I used to think I wanted to be an elementary school teacher until I had kids. Thank God I never finished that degree. LOL It’s not for the faint of heart.

    Congratulations on hitting the 15 book milestone!

    1. Thanks, I’m in awe of you and YOUR huge milestones. Something to strive for, I think. My idea of being an elementary school teacher lasted all of an afternoon. It was very short lived. For a while I did want to be a teacher, but only of high school or college level. I don’t think I could manage a gaggle young children running to and fro. I’d be the teacher with all the wild kids who couldn’t control them.

Share your thoughts--I'd love to hear them!
