Words can not express the happiness I felt the day that email arrived from SCP accepting my manuscript Keeping Secrets for publication. The reality still wasn't there even when I received my contract. It wasn't until the cover was designed did the reality of my dream of being published sink in.

All you have to do is answer the following question...and leave your email address in your comment. I'll draw the winning name on January 13. 2012.
It's all about the secrets in...Keeping Secrets, so let's stick with that theme.

“When a home renovation brings the fiercely independent Samantha Witherspoon back to her childhood home in Montreal and to a world where she thinks her secrets are safe, she has no idea that soon, she will be celebrating new beginnings. Still grieving over the loss of her grandmother, she begins a home renovation that leads her straight into the arms of a handsome contractor who immediately challenges her every decision. But Samantha could never have predicted that she is about to face the most difficult decision of her life. Will she find a way to honor her heart and her promises at the same time?"
