I Love Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays, because I'm a romantic at heart. That's why all my books have a strong romantic theme woven into the stories.

Let me introduce myself. I'm Lena Nelson Dooley. Here's my latest bio:

Award-winning author, Lena Nelson Dooley, has more than 650,000 books in print. She is a member of ACFW and president of the local chapter.

Lena loves James, her children, grandchildren, and great grandson. She loves chocolate, cherries, chocolate-covered cherries, and spending time with friends. Travel is always on her horizon. Cruising, Galveston, the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, Mexico. One day it will be Hawaii and Australia, but probably not at the same time. Helping other authors become published really floats her boat. And the high point of her day is receiving feedback from her readers, especially her fans. And she loves chocolate, especially dark chocolate.

You might ask why I'm on this blog. I'm very excited about the answer. In September, I signed a contract to write a three-book series for Charisma House called McKenna's Daughters. Book one is finished, and I'm in the rewriting stage right now. I love my editor, who is helping me really make the book shine. This book releases in October.

Then this month, I signed a contract to write another three-book series called Restored Hearts. I'm excited about this series as well.

If you've read all the romance books by the other Charisma House authors and want another interesting romantic book to read, you might try my latest, Love Finds You in Golden, New Mexico, while you're waiting for our other books to release.

Tell someone you love them today. Show it in a tangible way.

What is the best Valentine you ever received? Leave a comment and tell us.

Love the name of your blog.
My husband went to the furniture store to buy me a Victorian love seat. They were closing out the line and the dear man brought home a red velvet sofa, the love seat and matching chair, a marble topped coffee table, matching end tables, and a fern stand. All for the price of the love seat. WOWZA.

LoRee, what a guy, and what a gift. I wish I could see it. That's the period I'm writing about.

About the name, we all write for Charisma House books. Try some out. You might like out books.

LoRee, hope you come back to visit soon.

Lena, I think my favorite valentines are both the funny ones and the heartfelt ones from my hubby and children.
