From the Author
Holding Out For Love, a companion book in my Coach's Boys series, felt like it took forever to come together. I wrote the first fifty-thousand word draft during the 2012 NaNoWriMo. If you're unfamiliar with that term, it's short for National Novel Writing Month, and it's a challenge for authors around the world to write a complete manuscript during the month of November. I wrote this in twelve days, then Erin's Christmas Wish, and finally, about ten-thousand more
words in another story ... for a total of 82k words in less than thirty days.
'Erin' was published the next month, but Holding Out For Love (aka the NaNo book for eighteen long months) sat around collecting virtual dust. Yes, I had so many other projects on my schedule it took forever to get around to the editing.
But it's finally here, and I'm excited because thanks to some great reader suggestions, it's much better than the original version. I hope you enjoy Wendy and Jake's story - and catching up with some old friends from The Daddy Pact, A Hero For Holly, and Code Red Christmas.
