News and an Exciting Contest

I've just received some wonderful news from Lori Graham, my late, dear friend Sharon's editor at The Wild Rose Press. I'll let her tell you herself:

Sharon Donovan was one of Wild Rose’s authors. Unfortunately, she passed away this year but her characters live on. In fact, one of her stories has yet to come out. It is being finished now but we could use your help.
The story, a Crimson Rose, is set in New Orleans and features a dating service. I would like your help to name the match-making agency. Here are the possible names:

Fulfilling Wishes
Dreams Come True
Happily Ever After
Wishes Granted
Granting Wishes
Make Me a Match
The Perfect Match
Desired Endings
Search No More
Two Hearts
Eternal Bonds
Please send your vote in an email to 
lori (at), putting Matches in the subject line. In the email body, just type in the name you like. The one with the most votes will be featured in the story and then one of the people who chose that name will be picked at random to win a free download of the manuscript.
All entries must be to me by noon on August 9th.
What a great way to honor Sharon’s memory and help out with her story.

Lori Graham
Senior Editor, Crimson Rose
The Wild Rose Press, Inc.

Thank you Hywela Lyn and Lori! Sharon does in fact live on among her friends. We shared several emails and I still miss her. What a sweet spirit she is! We miss you, Sharon but we know you're still with us...
