I Ain't Down Yet


        Hello, gentle readers! Hope you are all well and staying safe!
I did it. Took my heart in my hands, offered up a silent prayer, and submitted Wife For Hire AND The Maverick and Miss Miller to several publishers. So far, I’ve received three Thank You But No Thank You’s (these were not my first rejections, but still, you know, your confidence kinda takes a hit). Not saying I thought someone would accept Wife For Hire the first time out, but there’s always that little spark of hope someone will love it like I do (I have not heard anything on The Maverick and Miss Miller yet, but I’m sure I will).
So, how am I dealing with the rejections? Well, first, I beat myself up a little bit (because that’s what I do…asking myself “Are you out of your mind? You weren’t ready! The manuscript, query, or synopsis weren’t ready either! You could have done better!). And after I shut my inner critic up, which wasn’t easy (she sounds very much like Meryl Streep, whom I adore as an actress, in the movie The Devil Wears Prada), I consoled myself with a heart-to-heart talk with some dear (and very supportive) friends, then fell into a carboholic’s dream coma (my carbs are restricted right now; however, carbs are the first thing I reach for when I’m feeling this way). Had some chocolate, too!  
After the scale spoke to me in a very condescending voice this morning (yes, like Meryl Streep again) and another heart-to-heart with my fantastic critique partner, I’m back to pounding the pavement, so to speak, and just sent off Wife For Hire to another publisher. What can I say? As the great Debbie Reynolds sang in the movie The Unsinkable Molly Brown, “I Ain’t Down Yet! 
Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!

Beautiful Russian Monster (A Vancouver Mafia Romance) by Odette Stone

 Her grandfather, a shipping tycoon, is missing, and Blaire is kidnapped by a frightful Russian man.  What else can go wrong?

Viktor has a mission, different than his former position in the Russian Mafia, but somewhat the same.  He needs to be stealthy and better than his opponent because there are no "ties" in this game.  


In order to save his tight friends, Viktor steals Blaire who is supposed to have the answers he needs.  If she can help him find her grandfather, he can save his friends.  Quite a mess of steps to get to the end of the maze.

Constant action, bad timing, luck, and ingenuity not only reveals clues to the end, but a bond between the captor and captured.  

Viktor has no use for a needy woman in the future and Blaire can't imagine this ruthless man as anyone who could have compassion.  Little by little, they work together to get what they want, which may include a first date...

Yea!  

Happy reading,

Dawn

Veronica Reviews - WYATT'S WAY by Lexi Post

 

Wyatt's Way
(Last Chance #7)
by Lexi Post

5 Stars

★★★★★

“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
—Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland



Welcome to Last Chance Ranch. A working ranch set up to care for rescued and abused horses, and for Wyatt Ford, perhaps a second chance at finding a place to call home…

If you’ve been following this series, you’re in for a much-welcomed return to familiar characters from the past. But if this is your first visit to Last Chance, pull up a chair and get ready to fall head over heals over Wyatt and Alyssa’ story.

Wyatt’s Way is a roller coaster of a romance full of witty banter, past turmoil, and smexxy new beginnings. Lexi Post has an amazing talent for brining her characters to life within the written word, and I always look forward to her next read!

Loved and highly recommend!

Sharing what I love, 

Veronica
