“Dinny’s Challenge” becomes a #1 Best Seller!

As a Christian author, I thank God for each gift of success.

“Dinny’s Challenge” became a #1 Best Seller for a glorious while and I knew took screen shots of its exalted status immediately!

Creating the book was an interesting exercise in humility, as you can see from my post, “Dinny’s Challenge:” A Fresh Start. It taught me not to take criticism personally, but to see it as a helpful aid to improvement.

My critiquing circle’s good judgment made the book successful, and I am eternally grateful to them.

Readers tell me my books bring back happy horse memories from their childhood, and one was even encouraged to get on a horse again, after reading about the equine adventures of my heroes and heroines!

Such feedback is enormously rewarding and encourages me to continue writing.

I’m now working on “Friday’s Folly,” Book 3 in The Sinclair Island Romance series.

“Dinny’s Challenge”: a Fresh Start

It’s been interesting to discover that an author friend of mine, who is way more successful than me, is having the same trouble with her current novel as I am. We both suffer from a difficulty to move on from the hero in our previous book to the next one.

Grant didn’t own a horse in the first version. He’s quite a bit older than Fulton in ‘Saving Prophecy’ and his only sport was golf. I hadn’t realized how boring he was until I decided to make him the owner of a beautiful grey gelding. After all, the horses make the book, don’t they?

Dinny’s Challenge is proving a real challenge!

That immediately gave him a snazzier car, an interesting extra hobby, and he is also a member of the volunteer emergency services on the island. I shan’t say which one, but no, he’s not a fireman.

Which brought me to Dinny, who needed spicing up, too. She was under her husband’s thumb for many years, but broke out of her shell after his death. I wasn’t conveying that, apart from having her fulfill her lifelong dream of buying a horse. Now she’s up to all sorts of things, and I’m having a hard time keeping up with her!

Wish me luck as I follow the tricky romance between the two of them.
