It’s been said, “Never be afraid to try new things and make some mistakes, it’s all part of life and learning!” I recently learned some new skills to design covers and format the interiors for two of my novels. When I finally pushed the publish button for Along Came Love and Surrendered Hearts, I was proud and delighted I could make these books available to you! Click on the covers to order your copies.
