A Visit from the Ever-Refreshing Elizabeth Seckman

I'm bringing cheers Angela! I was writing this post when you said on Facebook, "Woke feeling great to be alive to start another year of life."

That made me smile *YAY!*. A positive spirit can spread warmth as quickly as a summer sun.

As a writer, it's easy to go negative...we have to deal with a lot of hooey (that's a real word evidently, no red line on my spell check!) and worry.

Are we good enough to get published; good enough to stay published; good enough to sell to someone who isn't on the Christmas card list? 

And then there is the stress inside the business where the striation of the publishing path has left us with a high school atmosphere, only instead of checking the labels on clothes, we're checking the labels (and ranks) on books.  

It can be depressing. 

If all that matters is prestige. 

But for those of us who find refuge in writing...we happily keep going *yes we do, Elizabeth!*

Because we know, it doesn't matter whether you're on the prom court or hanging with the wall flowers...words are our friends and they don't discriminate. 

Fate Intended is the third book in the Coulter Men Series.  Trip is the last of the Coulter sons to find love. He’s a handsome man with all the skills a young spy needs to succeed. But when it comes to love, he misses the target. Jane is a sweet beauty who may or may not be wanted for murder. She’s hiding out as a cleaning lady when chance brings her and Trip together. It looks like a happily ever after is in the cross hairs until reality tries to destroy what fate has intended.


Elizabeth Seckman is a simple chick with a simple dream…to write stories people want to read.
