BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENT = New Release: Silver Belles and Stetsons, a Cowboy Christmas Anthology with 10 novellas from 10 different authors. My sincere thanks and appreciation to an unknown reader who posted a favorable review on Goodreads for The Drifter’s Proposal, my contribution to the anthology [which released three weeks ago on its own]. My heartfelt appreciation to readers who purchased both the anthology and the single title–simply to show support.
