A Change of Plan!

A change of plan, Miss Penny speaking. First, I want this on record that I do not approve. As everyone knows, I am the centre of attention, after all I am a princess. It seems that Susan, my boss thinks that we need to revert to the original title Susan A. Jennings Author For the Love of Story the latter being the blog. Susan says, if I want to continue hosting the blog I must talk about books, writing, reading and fun stories about all her novels especially those in progress. She (notice I don’t use Susan or boss, that’s how miffed I am) has

Don’t mess with me, I’m miffed!

condescended to give me a line or two for my antics. Huh! Antics indeed! We’ll see about that. I noticed a new pair of slippers in the hall and they look particularly chewable. I could pee on the carpet, except we don’t have a carpet, so that won’t work. I could ignore her too. But that would be harder on me than you-know-who. So …. I, as the host of For the Love of Story, shall take second place and sulk. But, a message to my loyal fans, rest assured there will be consequences. Psst! I’ll make sure my stories sneak in—stay tuned.

February is Valentine month. Susan is featuring The Lavender Cottage a women’s fiction series with a love story. Individual books or the box set of three. A delightful and cozy read about love’s heartaches and joys, this series is full of warmth and happy endings.

Covers were the topic of the week specifically The Blue Pendant. Susan was considering changing the title to Anna. However, all the five star Amazon reviews  would disappear and it is incredibly difficult to accumulate reviews, so there will be a new cover but no new title

Work in progress!

Heart of Sophie’s WarBook 2 of the Sophie Series is getting very exciting. Sophie’s life is in turmoil, the worst since she arrived at Passchendaele. Sister Sin’s watchful eye is dangerous.
