It put me in mind of a similar day about 18 months ago when we met at that same coffee shop and I shared a story idea with Jaime that I was working on. A western 'fish out of water' story called The Cactus Creek Challenge.
A couple of weeks later, Jaime messaged me to say she'd been looking all over her house, every book bag, every bookshelf for that story where the sheriff and the schoolteacher swap places...then she remembered that it wasn't written yet! I have treasured that compliment for a long time. :)
Well, today, is the official release day of that story, and I'm so excited and proud to hold this book in my hands.
On this day of celebration, I'd like to give a shout out to a few folks. To Annie Tipton, Becky Germany, and JoAnn Simmons who are the best editors ever. To Shalyn Sattler, my marketing liaison at Barbour/Shiloh Run, who has celebrated every review and endorsement of The Cactus Creek Challenge with me. To my newly-formed Posse, who are even now spreading the word about this new release through reviews and tweets and facebook posts and pinterest pins. And to my family, who are always encouraging. I couldn't do any of this without you.
So here it is, finally. Release Day for The Cactus Creek Challenge. My book baby is launched out into the world for readers to enjoy.
We've got some fun giveaways planned for later in this month to celebrate the release of these books, so I hope you'll return here to find out about what we've got in store.
Here is a bit about The Cactus Creek Challenge:
Anything he can do, I can do better. At least that was what Cassie Bucknell thought before she pinned on Ben Wilder’s badge and took to patrolling the streets of Cactus Creek, Texas. Cassie has been in love with Ben since primer school, but Ben treats her like a little sister. When they are picked to swap jobs for a month as part of the annual Cactus Creek Challenge in their Texas hometown, the schoolhouse is thrown into an uproar, the jail becomes a temporary bank vault, and Cassie and Ben square off in a battle of wills that becomes a battle for their hearts.
