A little R&R

Hi, all!
We here at the Wranglers took the month of April off for a little R&R. I don't know how much of that we actually got. Everyone was really busy! But I'll let everyone share their own news. It was a crazy month for me. I contracted my contemporary western suspense, Ride A Falling Star, with Heart's Desire Press and finished edits on it. I have some blog appearances coming up on it. Please watch for them!
My novella, Sunny Days Ahead, became perma-free and it's been fun to watch it make it into the top ten on Amazon and stay there for awhile.
Gosh, this sounds like one big ad, doesn't it?
The most exciting thing that happened was I finaled in the First Line contest over on Authonomy. Almost 800 entrants were narrowed to ten. We were then asked to submit a synopsis. I was blown away to learn I won it! The editors at Avon will review the manuscript. Fingers crossed.

Overall, April was crazy-busy and it looks like the rest of spring and summer will be the same. We will be here just like always now that we're back! See you next week!
