Happy Release Day)!

Hey there, everyone! Today is a really special day for a couple of reasons:

1) it's a book birthday! Today the third book in my Texas Girls trilogy releases to the world and I couldn't be happier! What a Texas Girl Dreams, I think, wraps up the story of the Witte sisters nicely - it gave me a few teary moments while I was writing, editing, revising and editing some more, let me tell you. Release days are always a mixture of manic-happiness, manic-sadness and a twinge of fear, because in the writing, books become a part of the writer...and it's scary letting them go out into the world.

Here's a little more about the book:

Monica Witte has life the way she likes it. She comes home to be babied every few months and the rest of the time she has no strings holding her back. But after her horse is injured in a rodeo performance, Monica knows it's time to come home and face her family – warts and all.

Trickett Samuels works best on his own. The large-animal vet likes his quiet life in the Texas countryside. When Monica Witte blows into town, demanding a quick fix to her horse's big issues, his life is turned upside down. Trickett doesn't understand Monica's need to perform before perfect strangers or why she wants to keep the truth of their relationship from her family. And the more he gets to know her, the more he wonders if he can convince this Texas girl that having roots will only help her soar higher.

2) it's the eve of my publishing birthday! June 4, 2012 was the date my first book - and the first Texas Girl - hit store shelves. What a Texas Girl Wants was (and still is) definitely a book of my heart, and I can't believe it turns 1 year old tomorrow...but we'll get into that (and a fun Anniversary Contest) tomorrow...for today, it's What a Texas Girl Dreams Day...so, tell me readers, what is your dream?
