It's Here!

Book Two in The Huntington Saga Series Novels~

Pirate Bride!

Miss Susannah Blakemore is kidnapped and sold into white slavery as payback to the Huntingtons. Will her pirate hero save her?

“The Huntingtons will pay. Oh, they will pay.” Plots and unholy alliances are put into action carrying out long-awaited retribution.

Only … one was not thought of. One was not even considered. How would anyone have guessed that a descendant of a pirate would take up his old family tradition in a mad quest to regain his bitterly lost love? The Marquess of Latham will not abide by this act of violence arranged for his precious love, but will surely save her -- will he not? And will he make her the next pirate bride?

Next? There must be a first to have a 'next'. But there was another ... centuries ago ... that still walks the halls of Stonecrest Castle.

I've been avoiding them like the plague...

...and now I remember why.  Forums can either really bring out the nasties in people or show that the kind ones really, truly shine no matter where they show up.  

As for my first few attempts at getting involved in several different websites' forums, only one out of four brought forth a kind comment.  Perplexing.  And yet, its not.  If people have anonymity, them seem to show some pretty true colors...and so far, I'm not impressed.  Sad to say it, but many of my fellow authors out there in the myriad of writing communities can be downright ugly.  

That's why I keep coming back to my own little publishing world on my own little websites.  I don't have to talk to the meanies; rather, only to friends and other authors who care.  They've been there and haven't forgotten civility and concern for others.  I'm ever so grateful.  

I knew all along that stepping into this world of publishing and being seen by the 'world' would be tough on my sensitive nature, but my family and their needs are still worth the effort to push past the hurt feelings and even the ignorant words of others.  So I keep plodding along...trying to have a stiff upper lip.  Gosh!  I'm bad at it!

Have a great weekend, everyone!  And be determined!
