Mama's Pride and Joy

Hi folks,
            Just a quick blog about motherhood.  As you all know, I'm a newly published novelist, my first book, The Phantom Pilot, having been released last December.  Oh, I'd had a few short stories published here and there, and won a few contests (one in Alfred Hitchcock Magazine, woot!), and I'd even written a couple of bottom-drawer novels.  So of course I was THRILLED the day I received the acceptance email for The Phantom Pilot (Cool Well Press).
           But let me tell you, that day was nothing compared to the day my only daughter, Sara Barnard, called me and told me HER historical romance novel, (shameless promotion here, skip ahead if you're allergic), A Heart on Hold,  had been accepted by 5 Prince Publishing.  I whooped and hollered and carried on so loudly the cat "lit out for the territories," which is just another way of saying she dashed under my bed.  
           Now, I also have a novel coming out with 5 Prince. All For Love, a contemporary romance, will be out later this month.  Great people at 5PP, let me tell you.
           My second Phantom book, The Phantom Student, will be out next month from Cool Well Press, another great publishing company (YoDen!).  But enough about me.  This was supposed to be about motherhood.  So on that note, here is the link for Sara's novel http://tinyurl.com/9zap784   
It will also be available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble at any moment.  It's a great read.  And I'm not biased.  Not in the least.  I swear!

  1. Thanks, Mom! Well you certainly weren't biased when you were helping me revise A HEART ON HOLD all hours of the day and night since 2010 <3 Thanks for helping me on the path to publication! I love you!

    1. Love you, too. And I totally forgot to mention your children's books that are going to be published!
