Good Deeds Challenge Year 2, Week 21

Welcome to my second Year of Good Deeds, a challenge I set myself during April 2013. I decided to do at least one Good Deed a day for a whole year, now I an into my second year.

New Good DeedsDuring my week I’ll also being updating you on My Kindness Challenge which I’m also doing. I read about a new challenge to make the world a better place to live in. “Speak Kind Words, Receive Kind Echoes” see the inspiration on  The Kindness blog . During my learning process I’m donating money to charity for my slip-ups to make me work harder to achieve results. I earn no money from any of my book reviews, so having little to spare should focus my mind.

Romancing September #RomancingSeptember – Day 9


Romance September 2014 cover (1)

Welcome to Day 9 of Romancing September Across The World Tour. Today our guest is Debbie Peterson. Catch up with more from Debbie in a few hours with the second part of our tour when Stephanie chats to her.


Where is your home town?

Though I didn’t spend my early childhood here, I suppose I will have to claim Las Vegas since I have lived here for the greatest portion of my life.

How long have you been writing romance?

About six years ago I once again picked up my proverbial pen (keyboard) and wrote what ended up being my second published novel. Previous to that I spent about two years writing a few stories that I shelved when I made the decision to home-school my dyslexic daughter, but that’s a story for another time.

What is your favourite sub-genre of romance?

I love both paranormal and historical.

Tell us what Mariah does for a living.

Mariah Jennings is world-renowned artist.

What has she been hired to do?

She’s been hired to paint a series of castles for “The Gallery of Castles” project. Her final castle is in the highlands of Scotland and it is in this fictional castle where the story begins.

Who does she meet there?

Mariah meets the spirit of Sir Cailen Braithnoch, the very knight she has inexplicably been sketching and painting her entire life, as well as his entire garrison.

What must they discover together?

They must solve the mystery surrounding his death—a mystery that involves black magic.

Who is the jealous rival?

Evan MacGilroy meets Mariah the day she arrives in the village. He is immediately drawn to her and has every intention of winning her heart.

Tell us what you are working on at the moment.

I am working on the edits for my novel “Court of the Hawk,” which is more of a fantasy romance than it is anything else. This book will be published by The Wild Rose Press in 2015. I won’t get a release date until we reach final galley. At the same time I am working on my current WIP, which is another paranormal romance.
