As a writer, I often live in a make-believe world.  So, really, why should today be any different? This week, I have a novella, Baby On His Doorstep, available on Kindle (for only 99 cents!!)  In the 40+ books I’ve written, I’ve never had a launch party, but I thought why not now?  Not a party that would necessitate a lot of work, or tons of time.  One that would simply be FUN.  

So, I’m pretending the porch below is mine.  And I’m inviting you to join me for lunch!  We’re having beautiful weather where I live so we should be comfortable outside.  I’ll furnish pizza and soda and you can bring your favorite dish.  Just tell me what you’ll be bringing (or tell me what’s your favorite kind of pizza) and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a copy of Baby on His Doorstep!  They’ll be FIVE winners (announced on Sunday)

 porchAs you can probably tell (by the pizza and last second invitation) this is a very casual event.  You don’t need to dress up or stay long.  Just pop in, grab a slice of pizza and say hello…or hang out all afternoon.  Your choice. :)

Help me enjoy the launch of this novella that I absolutely love!  This book begins a series of novellas set in the town of Harmony, Idaho.  At the end of November, Love at Mistletoe Inn will be out.  In December, His Runaway Bride, will be available.  Characters you see in Baby on His Doorstep will be in those other two books as well.  Such fun!

What’s the book about?  I’m glad you asked.  Here’s a brief blurb: 

Second-grade teacher, Callie Goodhue, built a good life for herself in her home town of Harmony, Idaho.  Successful in her career and happily surrounded by friends and family, she was content.  Until the day she learned her former heartthrob, Dr. Eli Webster, was moving back to town.

 

Because of a past incident involving Eli and her twin sister, Callie is determined to keep her distance from the handsome doctor.  That quickly proves impossible.

 

First, Eli moves into the cottage right next door!  Then her car breaks down and he’s the one who comes to her assistance.   And when a baby is left on his doorstep (with a note indicating he’s the father), Eli asks her to watch the child while he tracks down the mother.  Despite her hesitation, Callie finds the offer impossible to refuse.  It’s her summer break and she desperately needs the extra money for a new transmission.   If Callie didn’t know better, she’d think the Almighty was deliberately throwing them together.

 

Yet, as she begins to get to know the grown-up Eli, Callie wonders if God has a better plan for her life than she ever dreamed possible.  And the man she once thought was perfectly wrong for her is actually perfectly right.

Think of all the times you’ve put yourself out there.  Maybe it was back in your school days when you ran for student council or tried out for a play.  As an adult, it may have been when you applied for a job or did something as simple as ask someone to write a reference for you.

Every time we put ourselves out there we risk rejection.

I love Facebook.  For several years I’ve had a personal page which I absolutely love.  (I hope that you and I are Facebook friends on my personal page).  But for authors, also having an author page is recommended.  Though I’d been encouraged to have Facebook author page, I didn’t do it because I had this vivid image of me hanging around this author page (often called a fan page) all by my lonesome.  I swear I heard crickets chirping in the distance.  

Finally I sucked up the courage and did it.  I’ve managed to pick up a few friends over the past ten days on this new page, but I’d LOVE to have you join me.  If you search for Cindy Kirk on Facebook, find the picture of me that says “author” then go to that page and hit LIKE.  

This is the picture of me on that page:Cindy-0323-Revise-LR Color-headshot

There’s also a contest link on the page and I hope you’ll enter.  Next week I’ll be giving away a whole bag of books from a variety of authors so please enter to win!

In thanks for your help and support, I’m offering prizes today for my Jaunty Quills supporters.

Simply comment on this post and tell me:

1. that you went out and LIKED me on my Facebook author page (or you’d already LIKED me), and 

2. the last time YOU put yourself out there

If you do that you’ll be entered into a drawing to win one of my books.  This week I’m drawing TEN names!!

Thanks again for your support.  It means so much to me!

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow to see if you’re one of my TEN WINNERS.
