This week I want to share a free newsletter link with you.
Now I will warn you this newsletter has ALL types of writing opportunities, not just Christian markets, but it DOES include Christian markets, book markets, copywriter jobs. You name it. They list it.
I've found several opportunities and resources since signing up for the newsletter. I hope you peruse it and find it valuable too.

This doesn't mean that Love Inspired editors won't consider other book ideas from me, it just means, they aren't interested in this series. I really liked this series and the occupations I chose for the heroine's since all of the hero's were rodeo calf ropers. Maybe someday I can recycle those story ideas.
For now, though, I'll put them in my story idea file and start working on one of my new story ideas! The unfortunate thing for me is I would have had a book release every six months. Now, after my April release, Reclaiming the Cowboy's Heart, I won't have another book release until early 2016, which is a novella in compilation with other authors.
By the way, Reclaiming the Cowboy's Heart, is available for pre-order and if you are a Goodreads member, I'll be hosting a giveaway next week, stop by and enter!

I turned in my novella to Barbour Publishing. This will be a story included in their Lassoed in Marriage compilation. I'm not certain of the release date, but for my readers who enjoy historical over contemporary this book is for you.
Union Gospel Press was happy with my sample assignment so now I can go forward with the remaining stories for their children's publication, JEWELS.
Standard Publishing contacted me with a short story assignment which I accepted.
So, I've been working on short stories this month which falls into my one word for my writing: Diversity.
I'm sure depending on where your live February might have seemed like a long month with ice and snow storms. We keep missing the really severe weather which make me wonder if March will come in like a lion and go out like a lamb or vice-versa.
Did February seem long or short to you?

This conference has something for every type of author interested in writing in the Christian genre. Below is the link to their website. Not all of the authors and editors presenting are listed yet.
I was recently interviewed about my presentation and writing. You can read my interview here:
If you are interested in writing for the Christian markets, this is definitely a conference you should attend!

I have always loved this day because my dad always gave my mom, my sister and me a box of candy. Being a HUGE candy fan, I anticipated Valentine's Day more than Christmas (we did have our fair share of sweets at Christmas time too!). My dad's gesture is also why I don't always associate Valentine's Day with romantic love.
So here is my question for the week: Do you associate Valentine's Day with romantic love? If you're single do you dread the day or try to share it with a family member or even doing something special for yourself?
