Whispering Hearts by Cassandra ChandlerWe’ve almost reached launch day for Whispering Hearts! I love this book so much. Rachel and Garrett have become very dear to me. I almost feel bad for everything I put them through. But it’s a writer’s job to challenge her characters.

I was sure to keep these tame, but you should know that the book itself is sizzling hot. You have been warned!

Year’s End

2015 has been one of the busiest and most exciting years of my life. My first two books came out, and I’ve learned so much about the publishing process. I’m also beginning to learn how to balance publishing books with creating them—no easy feat! I’m very lucky to be working with such a great team at Samhain Publishing!

Next year is all about balance for me. I want to spend more quality time with my family, really focus on my writing-craft time, and expand my knowledge even more on the publishing and marketing side. I even have thoughts of writing a book about the craft! We’ll see how the year shakes out.

Here’s to a new year filled with fun, love, and happiness!

The Long Night’s Moon

This week, we’ll enjoy the Long Night’s Moon. We’ve just passed the Winter Solstice—the longest night of the year. The light is starting to return, though we still have months of winter before us. I’m going to take this opportunity to reflect back on everything that’s come before and look forward to all the adventures that lie ahead of me. Wishing you all peace and restorative silence.
