And the Winner Is:

As if you didn't already know, but THE CANNON'S CURSE won.

Yay! I'm officially starting the book, which is already different then I thought it would be, but what do you do?

  • It will NOT be cliche
  • It will be sassy and fun
  • The obstacle will not be some man trying to kill the girl, thereby throwing the lead man into hyperprotective mode, and throwing the fated couple into each other's arms. Just sayin'
And given that this is only day 2 of writing, I think that's about all I can promise.

On a different note, however, we should probably look at renaming the book. Something lighter and more playful. Something without the word "curse." People might think it's suspense or mystery...

Any thoughts? You know the premise. Also, I have names for the characters:

Mike Cannon: One of the cursed Cannons who will fall in love with his best friend's fiance.
Rori Townsend: the mysterious artist and international volunteer Luke meets and proposes to in Africa.
Luke Foster: Mike's free-spirited and impulsive best friend.
Kris Cannon: Mike's sister, who feels she has a vote in approving who Luke does and does not marry.

All title suggestions welcome :)

Thanks again for voting!!!


  1. Sounds fun. Good luck with it. I started City of Angels yesterday and I can't put it down! Love it. Can't wait to get my hands on the rest of them.

  2. Yay! Hope you love them all!!!! It's why we write, after all, right?

    Thanks for dropping by :)

  3. Yay! So glad that book won. And I like the name Cannon's Curse. With the right cover, it won't look like a mystery. I'm picturing pink, chubby cupids and hearts splattered around. :)

  4. I have no idea what to call it! It's already Cannon's Curse to me!

  5. It sounds like historical military fiction or something, though, don't you think?
