Meanwhile, back on the old homestead...

I did it again. Submitted, that is. I wanted so badly to enter the 'Got Wolf' contest with The Wild Rose Press, but nature (remember Gustav and Ike?) insisted on putting crimps into the game plan. Hey, just a minor setback. Well, I did it. I sent my 18k werewolf story, HEAVEN SCENT, to the Black Rose on Monday. Yay!

Then I get hit with a sinus infection. Nothing like a foggy head to take the edge off the celebration of a new contract. So, hey, since I was sick anyway, why not send HEAVEN SCENT in?

Next, I asked a few authors to review my newly contracted story, HEART'S REUNION. I'm sure all of you become a bit nervous letting other published authors read your work. I do. Can't help it. The mother rises up and I wonder if I checked to make sure teeth and hair were brushed on my newly birthed baby.

I always drive myself crazy wondering what these wonderful ladies will think of my newborn.

Well, I received two reviews and I have to say, I'm pleased!

P.L. Parker commented:

"Heart's Reunion is an eerie, but thought provocative journey into the mysterious realm of mountain folk lore. The heat between Bre and Micah sizzles from the first moment they meet and continues throughout. This is a "must read," and I look forward to reading more of Ms. Leger's works."

and Aithne Jarretta, Paranormal author, said this about the story:

"HEART’S REUNION is a spellbinding tale of spirits, an enduring connection of family and true love. Ms. Leger fulfills a promise to her Readers to give them a fully passionate love story with ghostly quirks, unabashed adventure, and the happy ending we all seek."

Awesome remarks! Thanks ladies!

You are sooooo on your way, baby! I can't wait to say, "I knew Judith Leger when she wasn't a household name yet!"
