Jenna Mindel here wishing you all a safe and happy Labor Day!
I love the water. I love being near it, in it and on it. My husband and I along with 2 other couples have just returned from a houseboating vacation on the boundary waters between Minnesota and Canada.
Another one of my bucket list checkoffs and it was a blast! But the first day was scary getting to our moor up site as the conditions were rough with high winds and good sized swells on the lake.
at least it didn't feel like it was and I could easily imagine the thing flipping. It didn't. In fact, we did just fine cutting through those swells.
Which brings me to my September release titled, The Deputy's New Family. I wrote a sailing scene in this book that scared the living daylights out of me. I had the help of a critique partner with sailing experience and YouTube. Oh my gosh, check out sailing rough seas on Lake Michigan if you get a chance and you'll see what I mean. Scary stuff. Add my overactive imagination, and boy oh boy, was I scared.
So am I alone? or do any of you scare yourself silly too?
The Deputy's New Family has hit the shelves.
Romantic Times magazine has given me four stars on this one.
"Mindel's characters demonstrate how we should not let life's risks and fears hold us back..."
Feel free to email me and
let me know if you were scared too as you read the sailing scene at www.jennamindel.com
