It’s all About Love

by Nola on February 7, 2017

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? What’s your preference? Flowers? Chocolates? Dinner at your favorite restaurant? Or maybe some naughty lingerie? After being married for thirty-four years to my best friend, I have to admit that Valentine’s Day is kind of anticlimactic at our house. (This year I bought a pair of gorgeous amethyst earrings as a present from me to me.) ┬áBut I usually do make an extra nice dinner that day and light pink candles for the table.

What’s your favorite Valentine’s tradition? How long have you been with your sweetie? If you’re currently without a sweetie, what is your fantasy Valentine’s Day like? Give me the deets!

Thanks for stopping by.

“Small town…big love.”

I’m thrilled to announce I just signed a contract with Beachwalk Press for the publication of my full length novel, Hawk’s Promise. This New Adult Interracial story is a break-through book for me. At 72,000 words, it’s by far the longest novel I’ve written. Let’s hope the majority of those words survive the editing process. […]

I’m taking a […]
