These lovely covers are from books by my friends that are releasing next month. As their release dates loom just around the corner they have been inspiring me more and more. Jessica Subject's romantic sci-fi tale, Celestial Seduction releases July 1st, Denise Grover Swank's paranormal mystery, Twenty-Eight And A Half Wishes releases July 15th, and Eisley Jacobs's middle grade fantasy, Born To Be A Dragon, Releases July 20th. These ladies have inspired me not only because they are my friends and are fantastic, supportive people, but because they are outstanding writers as well. Their grasp of the writing craft is something I aspire to.
During the first three weeks of July on my critique group's blog, the Critique Sisters Corner, we'll be interviewing one of these fabulous ladies each week to chat about their novels. Be sure to stop by CSC starting July 1st for the first interview. The success of my friend's never fails to inspire me and make me smile. Good things do still happen to good people and that's something we should celebrate. Here's hoping good things happen to each and every one of you.
Do any of you have good news you'd like to share? It doesn't matter how big or how small. Sometimes we have to be reminded to celebrate the little things and the steps along the way that bring us closer to our goals. What inspired you'd last week?
