Talk it out!

I know that I could have written out a beautiful blog with marvelous advice, but I thought a crazy video would work better.

Just to give you some background, my husband and I have been married for 21 years (together for 26 years – yes, high school sweethearts). We have raised three children and are surviving their teenage years. We have also endured the struggle of both of us having various levels of PTSD while one of us has seasonal depression and anxiety.

This video is the start of a series we have wanted to start doing for some time. It is a little crazy and full of laughter but our advice is clear.

Speaking of book launch…

Isn’t it exciting? A new book in the Independence Islands and a new island series – Elnora Island.

This first book is by the magnificent and talented Chautona Havig.

If it ain’t broke, why’s she so intent on fixing it?

Tessa Booker hates romance.

For twenty-five years, Tessa Booker has insisted that romance is something Hollywood cooked up to sell books and movies. Yes, she knows the word existed before movies.  She doesn’t care. That’s her story, and she’s sticking to it.

So when Ross gets a gentle nudge from Mallory Barrows to look into what Tessa’s doing every day while he’s at work, he discovers a romance in the works–one that sounds a little too “ripped from the pages” of his life!

Who is this woman, and what has she done with his wife?  

Armed with advice from 101 Ways to Romance Your Wifeand a copy of the manuscript he printed while she was napping, he’s determined to figure out what’s up with his wife… and if maybe a little romance wouldn’t be a good thing after all.

In a twist of the “on the rocks trope,” this book introduces the next island in the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

The Independence Islands Series: beach reads aren’t just for summer anymore.
