A Match for Emma

COVERBook releases can be crazy things.

I’m a little behind with celebrating on my blog because other life things have been busy…but here we are now! And I’m so excited that Jon and Emma’s story has entered the cyberworld 🙂 (and also paperback).

Leading up to it there are so many things to put into place to help spread the word and gather in as many people to celebrate as possible.

A Match for Emma is my thirteenth book release and I can’t tell you how very sweet it is to have such a wonderful group of readers, bloggers, friends, and family pull together their forces and cheer on each story.

The seed for Emma’s story began as I wrote book 1 in the series, A Twist of Faith, and it was such fun to finally bring her story to light. I didn’t expect it to be so much fun…or challenging. You see, friends-to-more tropes can come in a lot of different shapes and sizes too. This one came with the two friends not having any romantic feelings for each other at the beginning of the story, so I was a little concerned about the ‘tension’ and ‘pacing’ matching what I usually wrote.

    Another wonderful addition to this series, and I just loved how Jon and Emma came to the realization that they felt more than friendship for the other.
