Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Yes, I’m late by a few days but better late than never, right? I started to write about 2010, review the entire year from start to finish. However, 2010 is a blur, and who has that kind of memory, right? We had so much going on here at the Alvis (Blaine) house that if I tried to remember everything, it would be next to impossible. I still wanted to take a moment to highlight some special books, releases from the previous year that stood out and were special for various reasons.

So here goes…

Cowboys for Christmas

Aspen Mountain Press


Released in December 2010, Cowboys for Christmas hit Bookstrand’s Top 100 and is available now at Amazon and OneRomanceEbooks.com

Breakfast by the Sea released at Siren Publishing and hit the Top 20 best seller list running thanks to pre-order sales and an abundance of reader support for this ménage romantic suspense western novel. Currently available on Amazon Kindle, this novel will be available in print soon.

Writing as Natalie Acres, I submitted Bridled and Branded to Siren Publishing and the book was released this past summer, marking the start of another potential series. Cowboy Boots and Unfinished Business, the sequel to the controversial Cowboy Boots and Untamed Hearts was released as well.

2010 was full of one book debut after another and I feel very blessed that you've allowed me to entertain you with my novels, short stories, and novellas.

In addition to numerous writing projects, there was never a dull moment here at the Alvis home. My son, Matthew, was set to begin college at Lincoln Memorial but changed his mind and decided to enlist in the Navy. Needless to say, as a mother, I’ve had a lot of mixed feelings. My daughter Amber, as many of you know, plays volleyball but due to a sports injury, has been unable to play this winter. Instead, she's shopping all the time. I prefer seeing her on the court. It's much cheaper.


We’ve also been blessed with the arrival of a new family member. Terek, a friend of a friend, moved in with us in October. He’s brought a lot of joy to us and we’re excited for him because even in the face of adversity, he graduated from high school this month and actually picks up his diploma tomorrow. We’re hopeful he’ll be ready to start college this summer. However, my son is trying to drag him off to the Navy, too.

2011 holds a lot in store. I’ll be back soon to tell you what you can expect in terms of book releases and other book related news.

Wishing you a wonderful 2011 and extending my gratitude to each of you. Thank you for your support and for reading my books.
