Means of Mercy #1
By: Terri Rochenski
Hired as a nanny for her cousin’s children, Anne Tearle finds security and a loving family. The children are a dream, but London society is a world of its own, one where a displaced farm girl has no business being. But, wealthy rake, Gavin MacKay, helps her to see associating with the upper class might not be as horrid as she first assumed.
Like all things worthwhile, love comes at a price, and the cost soon bestows more anguish than joy. Lost, but not undone, Anne must find the courage to begin life anew, or succumb to sorrow’s unrelenting waves of grief.
Terri started writing stories in the 8th grade, when a little gnome whispered in her brain. Gundi’s Great Adventure never hit the best seller list, but it started a long love affair with storytelling.Today she enjoys an escape to Middle Earth during the rare ‘me’ moments her three young children allow. When not playing toys, picking them back up, or kissing boo-boos, she can be found sprawled on the couch with a book or pencil in hand, and toothpicks propping her eyelids open.
I never set out to be a writer, I only set out to write a story.
That story evolved and grew to the point that more worlds spun out of it. More ideas encircled the original expanding it further than I ever dreamed possible.
More stories demanded to be told– perhaps that’s what a writer is supposed to do…
Just write and so I have.
Purr-fect Mating.. coming to eReaders everywhere
Keep the date open.
I received an Arc (advance copy of) For the Love of Murphy, as a beta read. I liked it so much; I bought it. Then I thought, hey? What if other people might want to know about this neat book. So, here I am, telling you about it.
Here’s the link where you can get it. http://splashurl.com/pysc7qp
Here’s what each story is about (No Spoiler’s I don’t want to ruin your fun).
No wrong turns: I had a hard time moving to the next story after I read this one. Why? because there are some stories you read, and you just want to savor them a little longer. That is what No wrong turn was like. Instead of reading the rest of the stores as fast as possible. I gave this a few days, for the savor flavor!
Falling for You: There is nothing better than an old flame. This story managed to light up the candle inside my heart.
Coffee and Cufflinks: A saucy little tale that doesn’t disappoint.
A Slippery Slope: so cute. My definite favorite by one of my all time favorite writer’s. The ending, what can I say? She nailed it. The entire story was cute, just the perfect amount of aww.
The Shamrock Incident: Since I found London Saint James’s, Heart of Winter novels, I’ve been in love with her writing. Her sassy little love story hit the spot.
Each story was different yet wonderful, and together they made this Anthology a very refreshing read.
Today, I have exciting news to share.
A few months ago I was looking around trying to find a publisher for my kitty cat story. It’s about a nice couple who fall in love and get married. Only to find that they are cursed. It’s up to Fhina, our beautiful Siberian Tiger shifter to figure out how to break both curses. A cute shifter romance with a lot of humor in it.
Being that it wasn’t your normal everyday romance, I was a little bit leery about it’s chances at being accepted in this big wide world of publishing.
So, I searched for a publisher. I found one that was currently seeking stories for an Anthology. Naturally, I thought of my kitty story and sent it in. This weekend, to my great surprise, I got my answer. My very own short story, Purr-fect Mating, has been accepted by Roane Publishing.
I’ll be sharing more information with you as I get it but until then, i’ll leave you with this picture of my own kitty. Summer might not be a real Siberian Tiger, but she is a sweety.
