Thanks Anna for inviting me today.
My book BRIDE OF PASSION is now available.
If you like to read about the adventures of pirates, you’ll enjoy Andreas in Bride Of Passion. It's a Historical Romance set in New Orleans.
In schemes of greed and deceit, Claret is blackmailed and compelled to leave France, but vows to return one day…whatever the cost. During the voyage she encounters Andreas, a renegade pirate who has a debt to settle with an outlaw of the seas. Nothing will prevent him, not even the redheaded enchantress with a temper that matches his own.
Being a member of writing groups helped me to become a published author. I am member of a local chapter, Heart of Louisiana RWA (www.heartla.com) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and several online historical writing groups.
I enjoy working, painting, photography and I’m a Red Hat member. In the summer and winter my family enjoys traveling and snow skiing together.
Doing research for books makes writing Historical Romances challenging and fun. My novels have intrigue and action filled plots and I add interesting historical facts to the stories.
Bride Of Passion begins in France’s wine country. After I wrote the story, I had the opportunity to take a grand tour of France and stayed in a castle in the Bordeaux Wine Country. The story’s setting is in New Orleans.
All my author’s royalties from the sales of this book will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in Baton Rouge to help in research to find a cure. My grandson, Casey, has Cystic Fibrosis. He is eleven years old and a very special and an active boy.
The book is available through www.amazon.com, www.wingsepress.com You can contact me on line at firstname.lastname@example.org or www.myspace.com/conniewriter. I’d love to hear from anyone to chat about anything about writing.
Sometimes writers get distracted and put their stories away unfinished. My advice to getting published is to pull out that work. Finish it. If you can write a story, the fine tuning can be done with a critique group.
MY motto is “Beware, characters WANTED for my next novel”.
