I’m so glad you stopped by for a chat! It’s been an exciting summer and I’ve been especially thrilled to hear how much readers are loving Tidewater Inn. I’ve been writing nonstop all year with some exciting new projects coming your way: a new Rock Harbor digital novella titled Silent Night (coming the end of November) and a whole new Rock Harbor series coming in April 2013 (Rock Harbor Search and Rescue) as well as a new Smitten book (Secretly Smitten.) I’ve also been working on Rosemary Cottage, book 2 in the Hope Beach series and Safe in His Arms, book 2 in the Under Texas Stars series. Whew, no wonder my fingers are worn to stubs! I so love hearing from you! Email me any time at colleen{at}colleencoble.com.
