FRENCH PERIL is a published book now. I can’t thank you enough for the support you gave me during the last week. Seeing your friendly comments on a daily basis on my blog helped me cope with the stress.
Amazingly we believe that once we write a book, edit and polish every chapter, every page, every line, the job is done. Once we finale and win contests. Once we snag a contract from the right editor after coping with many rejections, then we’re done.
Are you kidding me? We are NEVER done.
We have to present and advertize the book, submit it to reviews, and move to writing the next one. The ultimate approval is the fan letter that says, I love your book. That’s when we smile and relax and realize we wrote a good story.

Today I will leave you with the official blurb of FRENCH PERIL and beautiful pictures taken two years ago during our South America cruise:
A summer job in France with room and board in a chateau owned by a handsome count. Can it get any better for Cheryl Stewart? The graduate student in Architecture is now officially on a mission for her sick professor.
Count François can’t hide his disappointment when Cheryl arrives instead of the eminent professor. But the aristocratic playboy is not one to turn away a beautiful young woman. He allows her to manage the restoration of the chateau’s chapel while keeping his search for a valuable historical statue a secret from the other students working on the project.
Soon things deteriorate. The professor is poisoned, the chateau’s butler attacked and Cheryl’s
room burglarized. When Cheryl’s summer job changes into a romantic involvement and dangerous treasure hunt, Count François is faced with a difficult choice. Is the priceless statue worth jeopardizing the safety of the impetuous young woman who has stolen his heart?

On Saturday, I will pull the names of three persons from the comments on the blogs of this week. Prizes: an onyx ring, adjustable to any finger, from Corfu, Greece.
