The theme of the 43rd annual Earth Day Celebration is The Face Of Climate Change. Let’s work together to make our environment safe.

Earth Day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Earth Day is observed on April 22 each year. The April 22 date was designated as International Mother Earth Day by a consensus resolution adopted by the United Nations in 2009.[1] Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network,[ and is celebrated in more than 192 countries every year.

There are so many beautiful old trees in my town in New Jersey. Many of them are severely damaged by the storms we’ve had over the years. New homeowners remove beautiful old trees to make way for a pool or larger play area, but there is something you can do to keep the beautiful landscaping we’ve come to know.  Plant a tree. Trees benefit the animals and the environment. Other things you can do are, support your local farmers markets, buy or make your own echo friendly products, and save energy.

                                                    AN EASY WAY TO HELP!

                                                          READ AN E-BOOK

When I was a little girl, we had a huge Weeping Willow Tree in our back yard. I used to sit underneath it and daydream. The beautiful branches hung down and made a cozy little hideaway. I started writing down my ideas even as a child. The stories came to me, inspired by the beauty of Mother Nature.

A great way to participate in Earth Day is to save a tree and purchase an eBook. Rebel Ink Press has a romance for you. Stop by today!

I’m excited to announce my contemporary romance, A Summer’s Journey will be released May 3, 2013.


Savannah Mason, the career minded journalist, spends long hours at work, hoping to take the spot as anchor.  She continues to fight for independence and refuses to allow her demanding father to take control of her life, despite his wish for her to take over his surgical practice.

 On her darkest day twelve years ago, she agreed to give her baby up for adoption.  Now, on her daughter’s birthday, a chance encounter gives Savannah an opportunity to explore a corner of her heart she thought was lost forever.

Rob Sinclair a renowned surgeon and NY Times best-selling author has a new release and needs a promo spot on the television show, The News Stop.  When Savannah gets to conduct the interview over the senior reporter, a door opens to her future.  However, first she must face the unsettled issues in her life, before she is free to accept love.

The last thing she wants is a relationship, especially one with a divorced, doctor who happens to have two small children.

A man, who seems all wrong for her, slowly weaves himself into her heart.  Can he accept her when he learns about her past?

Rob’s commitment to climb the ladder of success and provide a good life for his family, keeps him on the road for days at a time.  When he meets the assertive newswoman, desire and passion awaken his broken spirit.  How will he ever be able to trust another woman?

Savannah and Rob’s strong attraction is undeniable as they journey to a place where honesty and the power of forgiveness, can guide them both home. Will it be enough to heal the scars of the past and allow them another chance for love?

I agree! Ebooks are a great way to save trees. It's so scary how most storms lately are superstorms that destroy everything in their path.
Congrats on your upcoming release!

Thanks for stopping by, Cate! My husband planted a couple new trees in our yard. It's awful to see all of the destruction on the beautiful tree lined streets in our town.

Enjoy the day!

Yes, buying ebooks is certainly one way to help. At home, we are very conscious of the electricity and water we use as well. Every bit helps.

Congrats on your upcoming release!
