On this exact day one year ago, I was at the Killer Nashville Conference surrounded by published authors and told my friend Nancy Naigle  I was tired of being unpublished. I decided then and there to stop behaving as though I was unpublished. It was time to square my shoulders, step up my game and—as us Texans would say—take the damn bull by the horns. So I submitted some of my early work to several publishers. By early September, one was interested in my small-town Texas contemporary series and by October, I’d been offered a contract on the series by another.
Today—365 days later—is the book birthday for Personal Assets , the first in my four-book Texas Nights series. Talk about the power of positive thinking!
But we all know it takes more than thoughts to get us where you want to go. It takes a plan, perseverance and several success secrets individual to each writer. Today, I want to share the five most important secrets to my writing success.
I have several other success secrets in my closet, but these are the big five. Tell me, what are the secrets to your success?

Sex therapist Allie Shelby has the professional credentials, but she could use a bit more practical experience. Finding the right man to bring out her inner bad girl is tough in a population-challenged Texas town. So when sinfully sexy Cameron Wright rolls back into Shelbyville, Allie wastes no time inviting him to join her in some hands-on research.
But while her personal life heats up, Allie’s business is about to crash and burn. And she has to convince Cameron that she’s one princess who’s not looking for a prince to ride to her rescue.
