‘A Decent Woman’ is now available in ebook format on Amazon, with the paperback version soon to follow! We might be looking at a new book cover design, still featuring the Our Lady of Montserrat, so lots to look forward to!
A special thank you to my loving kids, family, friends, FB and Instagram friends, and blogger friends, who offered great information, love, and support, while pushing and encouraging me to keep writing despite an uncertain publishing future.
Now I can finish my second book, ‘The Laments of Sister Maria Inmaculada’, knowing my first ‘child’ has an awesome, new home and a brighter future. Lots of lessons learned this month…
and Mercury is out of retrograde! Hallelujah 🙂 Be well and happy writing to you!
More to come…
