I did it. I have finally accomplished a lifelong dream -- to become an author. Yesterday afternoon my first book went live on Amazon.com for Kindle. Soon it will be out in paperback. I can't express the feeling. I was on a natural high all day.
You're probably saying, well, get to it! What did you write? A gardening book? a quilting book? A genealogy book? Yes, those are all of my loves, but I wrote a fiction book based in Western Michigan, my home state, and it touches on all of those things. If you love romance, with a little history thrown in, this book is for you. It's the first in a trilogy; Number two is finished but still in editing and proofreading, and I'm working on number three now. Here's a synopsis of
The Tangled Roots of Bent Pine Lodge:
Kate Lemanski's world has been shattered with one family problem after another. When she inherits her family's log home in West Michigan, she returns to the river property to make a new start and to put the pieces of her life back together.
As soon as she meets the handsome stranger who lives through the wooded path, Kate immediately feels a connection, but is unsure of what it is. Living alone in the woods along a river presents some challenges, but it isn't long before she begins to feel like herself again. When she starts to dig into her family tree, a long-time hobby, she discovers some new and unsettling facts. But what does it all mean for her and her new-found relationship with the man next door?
