As of this date, Eva and the Irishman has been uploaded to Smashwords.com and is available for download on your ebook device! This first novel in the Eva and the Irishman series is FREE. In a few weeks, we will put up Wild Rose and the Horseman for pre-order.
I want to thank my sister Annette Toivonen for her relentless push these last weeks to format and upload Eva, all around her regular work. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are the best sister anyone could ever have.
You may ask, how do I feel? Well, when I saw it appear on the front page of Smashwords, it felt pretty surreal, and then I felt proud. I did that. That’s mine. It feels so good to be an author. If anyone had asked me ten years ago what I’d be doing now, I would’ve never, ever guessed that I’d have nine adult romance novels written let alone self-publishing any of them. Am I worried it won’t do well? My gut says not really. I have a solid sense of confidence about our presentation on Smashwords, the cover, and following their recommended best practices. Everything is well written, the stories are well-crafted, the characters are strong, and I know with every fiber of my being, this is what I’m supposed to be doing. I’ve never felt so right about anything, this writing, this genre, this story. So, I invite you to take a look.
