I love all of Dee's writings!! More books please keep them coming!!
God Bless for clean (not graphic writing). Love Sheryl Illinois
So are the funky-cool chix in the photo your Bible study group or somethin'?! Or modeling friends?
I mailed Courting Trouble to my daughter up in WA and she loved it. She said the ending was wonderful. She told me that it brought her to tears. So that is three "thumbs up" from us! What a beautiful story. I am so glad that my daughter discovered your books and told me I "just needed to read them." WE cannot wait for your next book!
Awwww! Thanks, Dorothy and Sheryl! That's so encouraging.
Now, Barb, you're asking me to spill all my secrets. That pic represents all us gals here in our online community--who are a pretty happening bunch and have lots to chat about around the water cooler! (Fact is, I use clip art!) ;-)
You may want to discuss the growth of the inpirational market and what has changed about it in the last few years sometime so people may be more open to giving it a try.
I actually did that a while back, AP. I'd do it again, but they don't much like us to do "repeat" posts. I'd love to have any other suggestions y'all have, though. I always struggle with what to write about when it is my turn!

I have been patiently waiting for Courting Trouble to be published I loved the 1st 2 novels, and would love to win an advance copy! God is so Good! I have been sharing my other DeeAnne books with my friends, and introducing many new fans.
I enjoyed your post, Dee...I like how you explained your time-line and how your characters start out with baggage on page 1. It seems to be working very well for you, because I have loved all THREE books! I blazed thru "Trouble" this weekend...it was FABULOUS! I liked the ending...I'm anxious to see what other trouble Essie cooks up. :-)
The title of the blog you posted on Deeanne, reminds me of a story I read in Chicken Soup for the Writer's Soul. There was a woman who'd always wanted to be a writer so she went to college to study creative writing. She was the only freshman recommended for a senior class at Yale (or Harvard, I forget.) The night she was supposed to read her writing to the class and get critiqued, the prof called her in and told her that her story stunk. He said there were no redeaming qualities and she would be better off in nursing school. He made her promise to never right again if she wanted a B in his class--which she needed to graduate with honors. She reluctantly agreed, went home to burn her manuscript, and didn't write for 14 years. Then, because she had the guts to tell a journalist that she admired him, he gave her his card and said that if she ever wrote anything to send it to him. She did. And she went on to write ROMANCING THE STONE.
You've probably heard the story, but it's so good I wanted to share it. Then I want to go have a little talk with that professor. 14 years!!! I'm inspired. And hopefully I can come see you when you are in Washington:)
I *loved* Romancing the Stone, Angela. That was such a fun movie!! Is there a book, too? (Btw, I'd love to see you in Washington. Keep an eye on my schedule--which is under the *Meet Dee* tab--so you can see when I'll be where. Right now, I don't even have travel dates.)
Wow! That was fast, Katybug--and, thanks! I'm furiously writing the sequel. My critique partner says the title should be "Courting More Trouble." Ha!
I am always looking for new authors to read and would love a copy of Courting Trouble.
I've read your book A Bride Most Begrudging and I loved it. I'm looking forward to reading Courting Trouble.
Hey--"critique partner" as in Miz Meg? Where's she been lately???
You know how the Bible speaks about not causing a sister to sin? Well all this talk of "Courting Trouble" is making me jealous! So I think it may be your Christian duty, Dee, to send me the book so I will stop sinning. *grin*
My other critique partner, Barb. (J. Mark Bertrand). Meg was out of town, then on deadline and now has a house full of guests. She still stops by, though, and lurks about.
I'm looking forward to Courting Trouble! I'll have to run over and check out that website that you have listed.
