To other authors...

I just saw a review left for an author by another author ... and I needed to say something. I love supporting other authors. Only we know the hard work and dedication it takes to take a concept and bring it full circle to a book, releasing it into the world for a mass of armchair writers and readers. It blows me away when I see other authors leaving 1-star reviews for their fellow writers. While e Read more of this blog post »

“You know, I think God allows those, who have passed, to visit loved ones for a short time.  I feel my mom with me at certain times of the year … my birthday, her birthday, the anniversary of her death.  Any moment in life that would have special meaning,”

“Some people dream. Others go through life doing what it takes to get by, leaving their dreams by the wayside. I'm a dreamer and a doer, making my dreams a reality and hoping to inspire others to do the same.”

Thank you! I will make sure to add yours this weekend!


Kimberly The kindle version of Second Chances is availabe for pre-order today! Here's the link to Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Second-Chances-...

Below is the synopsis:
Recently divorced Paige Knight is struggling as the shadows of her broken marriage appear around every corner. It’s insult on top injury when she realizes that her ex, not only left her practically penniless but also for a woman half her age. At the urging of her family, Paige decides to move home to Granite, Virginia, where at 42, she’s left with the challenge of reinventing herself. Although her future is uncertain, she's not afraid to step out in faith and take chances in her life, but she’s she’s convinced that love won't be an option.

After a knee injury, Nick Granger, a professional football player, lost his career and wife in the same week. In one short month, he finds himself retired, divorced and living the life of a single dad. After moving back home to Granite, Nick slowly manages to balance his new high school coaching career while being a single father, but begrudgingly accepts the fact that his teenage daughter, Katie, will need the guidance of a good woman as she matures. Caught between making sure she has everything she needs and rehabilitating after his career ending injury, Nick doesn’t have time for love even if he were open to it.


As both Paige and Nick accept living life with status quo, will they dare take a chance on love when they run into one another, where they shared their glory years? Or will their ex’s spoil any chance of a happy reunion?

After you read it, please drop me a note. I'd love to hear from you!
Thanks, Kimberly
