Guest Blogger: Annette Snyder

Joining us once again, it is my pleasure to welcome the talented and generous Annette Snyder. Thanks so much for being my guest again, Annette.

Thanks Denyse, for letting me blog today. It’s a pleasure to be among some of the best writers and readers around.

Since warm weather finally made it to the Midwest, I’ve been doing the regular outside stuff; planting the garden, cleaning the gutters and writing on the new laptop my kids bought me for Mother’s Day. I found that I love writing outside and with the portability of my laptop, I enjoy it even more.

I’m working on a title I’ve named Eureka Springs. The subject is Ruth Seidle, a mid-twenties woman who was in love with a married man. An accident changes her life and she’s forced to start over in another town where she meets a man. John Vickers was married. His wife had an affair. An accident changed his life and he was forced to start over in another town where he meets a woman. Since I write without an outline, even I’m not sure how this book gets to the end but my readers know I love happily ever after. Ruth’s story is an extension of a book that got snagged up by my publisher titled Viveka’s War, releasing soon. Both are set in the Pre- and Post-WW2 era.

Also releasing soon is Intimate Flames, my first contemporary. I wrote Intimate Flames years ago and only lately made time to bring it in line with all the new things I’ve learned since I’ve been published. Personally, I’m in love with the sullen hero, Andrew ‘Amen’ Packard. He has six brothers and sisters and, as I wrote this story, I got scores of new idea lines based on the Packard family.

You can find the information for my newest releases and the essays I write at my website http://annettesnyder.atspace.com/ or at the publisher’s site http://www.whiskeycreekpress.com/

Also on my website are blurbs, reviews and links for all my novels along with anything else you’re curious about including a button to contact me. And feel free. I always answer all my emails--make sure to fill in the subject line.

I love free stuff so, as a thank-you to Denyse for letting me blog, here’s a chance for participants to win a pampering summer prize of one of my releases of your choice and a bottle of Juniper shower gel. Just comment here about which novel you’d like to read from my published list on my website http://annettesnyder.atspace.com/ Denyse will draw a name from the Blog comments and let me know. I’ll contact the winner for mailing info. Just a note, if you choose Whiskey Shots Volume 1, it’ll be a download copy as that’s an e-book from the new line of short stories at Whiskey Creek Press. My two short stories were selected to premier the Whiskey Shots line of novels.

Good luck and read, read, always read!
Annette

  1. Thanks Denyse for having me. Father's Day started out wet here in Nebraska but it looks like the weather is going to perk up. The sun is shining.

  2. I follow links to learn about new authors and found your blog announcement on SweeterRomanticNotions.

    I think Travis Pass sounds intriguing, and if your grandmother couldn't put it down, then it's got my attention too!

  14. Hi, Denyse and Annette! All of your titles sounds really good, but I think I'd start with Travis Pass--I agree with Faith, if your grandmother gave it the two thumbs up, there's no better recommendation :)

  15. Annette,
    Thanks for the blog. I was able to click your links to find out more about you and Whiskey Creek Publishing. I like westerns. Sally Murphy sounds very interesting. There are others on your list as well that have made my wish list.

  17. Hi Annette and Denyse.!!!!

    Since I already have Travis Pass and enjoyed it very much as will anyone that would choose it as their prize, I would like to read Rock Creek or maybe Liberty Road.

    Either one sounds like I would really enjoy the story.

    If any of your other books are as good - (as I am sure they are) no one will be disappointed to read them.!!

    Have a great evening and thanks for the opportunity to win one of these.

  22. I would love to read Sally Murphy. The strength that she shows in overcoming the obstacles that life threw her and how she finds love again with the sheriff gives one hope that all is not lost. Your books tell beautiful life stories that can help one when their life is troubled and the historical settings sound exactly like life was at that time. Kudos on brilliant writings.
