Happy Birthday, Wild Rose Press!

It's a very special birthday today for The Wild Rose Press! I'll always be grateful to Rhonda and everyone at TWRP for helping me attain my dream of becoming a published author. When I got "the call" from my editor at The Wilder Roses that my first book, "One Good Man" had been accepted, I was over the moon!
In "One Good Man", heroine Andie Benedetto is too shy and insecure to reach out for the things (and the man) she really wants. She's afraid of wanting what she can never have. I could identify with Andie as for a long time I was afraid to try to reach my dream of being an author. I started many stories but couldn't seem to finish any. Writing is such a solitary activity, it's easy to look at your work and think "Ugh, what's the point? I'll never make it." But with the support of fellow writers  I at last finished a manuscript. And the support from everyone at The Wild Rose Press has been incredible and everything a beginning writer could wish for. 

But hey, it's not all about me! It's a celebration! Woo hoo! Happy happy birthday Wild Rose Press and may there be many more.
