Been a long time since I posted. But I have a good excuse.
My husband had a life-changing surgical procedure which went into an infection and we’re still recovering. I say we because anyone who’s gone through something life-changing with a loved one knows care-givers are right in there dealing with the changes as well. But he’s finally making progress and we seem to have found a new normal/routine for ourselves. Life goes on.
And boy is life going on for me big time this month!
NO PLACE LIKE HOME has finalled in WisRWA’s WRITE TOUCH READERS AWARD. Since entering the contest, this book has been retitled FINDING HOME, given a new cover, and reissued. Both versions are presently available in digital and print from Amazon.com.
I am proud to announce the reissue of INDENTURED HEART, my American Colonial Romance. Now available in Kindle and Nook download formats. www.BarbaraRaffin.com
She was a woman in a man’s business, shipbuilding, and someone didn’t want her to succeed.
Crippled in the carriage crash that killed her husband and betrayed by her solicitor and doctor, Megan McCall will trust no man to help her right the wrongs done to her.
But, the one person who can help her walk again is her newly acquired indentured servant…a convicted pirate…a man. Worse, Royce Devlin’s every touch reminds Megan of the passion she believes she will never know.

I lost one of my heroes earlier this month. Jane Toombs was far more than the one hundred plus books she published. She was more than one of the few established print authors to champion digital publishing at its inception. What she was above all was a mentor, encouraging and supporting new authors and readily sharing her vast knowledge of the business and craft of writing with all.
I had the privilege to have been invited into her home, a house she had built on a specially chosen plot of land overlooking Lake Superior. I am imagining Jane now walking the windy shores of that lake she loved so much, its waves crashing at her feet inspiring another paranormal, moody romance, or horror story from her.
