Love’s Tender Heart is available!

Free! ( link below )

When I set out to do something, it always takes longer than I plan for. This is my second novel and you’d think I’d know by now, but alas, not so. This second book proved it again.

In  two, two-year writing courses and numerous short stories, I’ve learned a couple of things about the craft of writing. But too, I’ve learned several personal things along the way.

Truths I’ve learned while writing:

  • To enjoy the journey.
  • Professional editing makes publishing way less painful!  ( RedAdept Editing, with manuscript evaluation by Mary Rosenblum )
  • With my writing schedule, family, friends and church still come first. I occasionally have to remind myself of that when I’m snuggled in my ‘writing chair’ lost in the story…
  • Time is precious. As the old saying goes, better make hay while the sun shines.

Love’s Tender Heart is FREE two days—May 21 and 22.

Download a copy—I hope you enjoy the read, and may I remind you how important Amazon reviews are to the author?  Pure gold … Thank you! 🙂

Until next time, keep your heart tender, study God’s word.

Mary 🙂

  1. Hey, Mare, I forgot to mention – did you know that Donald may pick Ben Carson as his VP? I just posted an article to my Timeline – it’s the second one I’ve read that implies it may be him? Donald has been picking his team, and he’s making some great decisions, I think!!! Now if only he can get in?

    They might be a good team? Carson is calm and level headed. That could balance out Trumps brash/hot headed personality type. LOL!!! I mentioned it earlier today to Susan – she’d not heard it yet. She didn’t sound too enthused. I imagine she was picturing someone with a lot more fire and assertiveness. I think Donald has enough of those characteristics for everyone!!!! LOL!!!


  2. Hey Mare, congratulations on your new book. Can’t wait to read it. Send me an email. I think I have the wrong one. I sent you a couple and you didn’t respond which I know is not like you. So I think I have the wrong address.
    I’m so proud of you!
