Welcome! Before I tell you a little bit about myself and offer you a chance to win COOL STUFF,
If you haven't already done so, don't forget to enter the drawing for the KINDLE VOYAGE here on our new BLOG. You'll find the form in the first blog post.
I've always written stories, but never had the confidence to seek publication, until in 2003, after writing the first book in my pirate series, I felt God leading me to get an agent. Three months after I got representation, I had a 3 book contract! After 15 books with that publisher, I've branched out on my own and am self-publishing. Why? Because I get to write what I want! And more importantly, what my readers want.
I grew up in South Florida where I spent most of my time on the beach, and now I live in California with my husband, 6 kids, 2 grandkids and 3 cats! I have zero time for hobbies, but I do have this cool Reef Marine Aquarium, pictured here.
I'm giving away this really awesome Tea Set (below), along with a Free Ebook of my latest release, The Reckoning!
To be entered to win, just leave a comment on this blog, indicating what prize you would like, and I'll draw a name in 2 weeks on the 18th!
Also, if you go to my website and sign up for my newsletter, you'll be entered to win a signed paperback. Here's my humble website .
We are so happy you are here!!! We hope you find this blog relaxing, encouraging, and fun.
Hi, I’m Danica Favorite, and my third book with Love Inspired Historical, Shotgun Marriage, will be out in April. My most recent book is The Lawman’s Redemption. Isn’t the hero dreamy? He’s even more dreamy on the inside, so check him out. My books are set in Leadville, Colorado during the silver boom of the 1880’s. I’m a mountain girl at heart, and we just bought our dream house in the mountains. Well, okay, it’s a rough start at our dream house, because it’s definitely a fixer upper. But you know, every time I feel discouraged about not living in the “perfect” house, I just look out my window and want to pinch myself, because I am living the dream and loving it! We have just over eight acres, and are starting to collect quite the menagerie of animals at our place. We’ve got chickens (I LOVE chickens), ducks (my little duckies are so cute!), geese (I tolerate them), and cats (I’m allergic, but we have a mouse problem). Eventually we’ll expand to other animals, but life at my place is pretty crazy right now. We also have visiting bears, deer, foxes, and assorted wild birds.
Seriously, it’s a little ridiculous sometimes how happy I am, and I really believe in encouraging others to find that same happiness. Yes, there are struggles, and I’m sure you’ll hear about those, but the best part of hearing about any struggle is how a person overcame it. And that’s what you’ll find my books are about. Ordinary people, living out the hard stuff, so they can get to the good stuff. Because I believe the good stuff is available to each and every one of us.
If that sounds good to you, I hope you’ll find me elsewhere on social media. I blog (infrequently) on my website at www.danicafavorite.com, and I have lots of fun goodies there, so check it out! You can also find me on Twitter @danicafavorite, Facebook (@DanicaFavoriteAuthor), and Instagram (@DanicaFavorite).
I'm a newspaper editor by day, night, or anytime that the news breaks. It's a never-a-dull-moment kind of job and I love it. I've been a fiction writer for far longer than the five years I've been writing the news. I've always had an active imagination, too, and started writing stories when I was a kid in elementary school.
A Recipe for Family is my most recent release, a contemporary Christmas novella that's part of the collection, Cookies and Kisses. My heroine is one of four friends who meet up every year over the years for a Christmas cookie exchange. Who doesn't love Christmas cookies? I'm looking forward to seeing where our reading road here at Clean Romance Reads Cafe takes us.
