I wish to cordially invite you to join me in celebrating the second book in a new billionaire romance series.
Coming March 8th, the second book in the Grimwood Legacy series will release. My Charming Billionaire is about the youngest brother, Jeremy Grimwood, who has just inherited a portion of his father's billion dollar conglomerate.
He has lived the charmed life. She only has her devoted seven workers to depend on in this modern day Snow White retelling.
Jeremy Grimwood followed in his father's footsteps and went to work at the family's investment bank. But his life has become dismal and is racing toward a dead end. Until he joins his family at their favorite ski resort. There he runs into his longtime friend, Melody Carson, whom he's had a crush on for as long as he could remember.
Melody Carson inherited the Sky High ski resort when her parents passed away in an accident. The resort has been in her family for the past four generations. Now her mountain refuge is about to collapse on itself and the predators are circling.
Jeremy wants to help Melody and maybe get himself out of the friend-zone. But Melody has built a protective wall around herself and refuses to accept hand-outs or take advantage of her friends.
Will Jeremy ever be able to break through Melody's icy fortress so she can see true prince he wishes to be?
Archetype. It means an original pattern of which all other similar persons, objects, or concepts are derived, copied, modeled, or emulated.
Basically, archetypes come from the basic personality types that make up all people. And we take those strong personality types to create our larger-than-life characters. I think, the more thought and planning one puts into developing a fictional character, by weaving in a few realistic traits, the more three dimensional of a character ends up coming alive on the pages.
These are our Frodo's, our Aslan's, Harry's, Peter Pan's and I can go on. Those characters that stick with us, are unforgettable and so realistic that readers talk and think about them as if they were real people, indeed.
Today, I'll go over some of the archetypes that are most popular. These are ones that have resonated most over the past generations of literature.

Ha! Trials. of research? Not really.
I'm having so much fun with my research for My Wayfaring Billionaire- book 3 in the Grimwood Legacy Series. I wanted to share some of the cool things I've found and have been doing.
Last year I released The Heart Collector and I must say, it's one of my favorite Madison Creek Township novellas.
When I was younger, I heard about someone writing a letter to their "older" self concerning the guy they hoped to eventually marry. I thought that was a brilliant idea! So, I did the same thing.
You know, planning out these thing in advance is prudent for a young girl who has a whole life spread out before her.
I kept that letter in my special box, waiting year after year for me to open before I married Mr. Right.
And that night before my wedding, I opened my secret box, pulled out the yellowed envelope, and slowly opened it. The penmanship was in childish print, odd sized letters and hearts over the i's. The paper was torn from a school notebook and still had the ripped tabs running down the side.
Taking a deep breath, I read through the letter, written by my younger self.
I wish to cordially invite you to join me in celebrating a brand new romance series.
Starting this month, I'm embarking on a new story adventure. Meet the Grimwood family, consisting of three brothers and a sister, who have just inherited their father's billion dollar conglomerate.
Oh, but there's a catch. Each one has been given a portion of Marcus Grimwood's multi-business conglomerate and they must turn a profit with their allotted venture or risk losing their share of the inheritance.
But wait on minute...
You're counting five books when I mentioned only four siblings? Ah, you are sharp, aren't you. Well, let me explain.
I'm so excited about this new romance series that will be released this week. I hope you'll enjoy reading about the Grimwood brothers and sister, as much as I'm enjoying writing about them. Today, I'm sharing a sample of the first couple of chapters.
Grab your copy of the first book on January 17th!
I've been spending the past month making plans for 2019.
I know some people like to make resolutions. (Guilty of making and breaking many resolutions). So nowadays, I'm more likely to make "plans" instead of "resolutions."
I know not all my plans will work the way I'm hoping, but by laying down a few dreams, the possibilities begin to come to light and hope springs inside of my heart.
How many of you are already thinking about the year to come? Are your calendars already purchased? Planners filled with fresh pages and ready to go? Goals, or perhaps resolutions, written down. Maybe this year we’ll make it to March before scraping them? Ha.
