Three Part Harmony

Three Part Harmony

Sometimes, the best-laid plans just fail to come together. That’s been the case with my Harmony Springs novels — spicy and sweet small-town contemporary romances. I think part of the reason they initially failed to find a home was their original names. The titles were all Sinatra songs — romantic, fun classics — what could be wrong with that?

So, last week, the thermometer hit almost eighty degrees.  Today, we’re expecting a high of 40, and the winds are enough to bring tears to your eyes. I’m wearing fleece socks on my feet and a T-shirt, long-sleeve T-shirt, and sweater. But that’s not what I mean by “bundling up.” Instead, I’m writing to tell you about the bundle I’m in. Okay. Not me. Fly Me to the Moon. What’s a bundle? I’m...
