ON TO THE NEXT ROUND! - Somewhere Down the Line moves forward


My novella, Somewhere Down the Line has moved into the next round. Thank you all for voting many times for this story. Just as Alana and Trey deserved their chance, so does their story.

Now that the book is in Round Two at Boroughs Publishing What's In A Name contest, I'm back asking for your votes. Yeah, it's that 'American Idol' or 'TheVoice' thing. Without your continued support, Somewhere Down the Line may not see the digital recognition their story deserves.

Please go to... 
For Round Two, they have posted the first page of the novella. You can vote Once Per Day through July 7th.

Let's work together!
Love and Hugs

I am forever amazed by people who have nothing better to do with their time than harass other people in some form. Really? If you have time to leave ridiculous comments on a blog or facebook, why not put your time to good use. Write your own book, maybe?

I have always tried to have an 'open door' policy on my blogs. I don't have time to jump through hoops on other's blogs and I know others are as busy (or heaven forbid, busier?) as I am. Commenting should be easy and painless.

Today I'm taking time out of my already limited computer time to delete nonsense comments and change my settings. I apologize for the inconvenience but hope you will continue to read and leave love.

Happy Reading!

I feel like a contestant on TheVoice of American Idol.

SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE is now in the hands of you - the voters. Without your love and support, my novella will not land in the top 25% and move on to the next round.

There are only fourteen entries and I have to say, I am up against some very good competition. Round Two (which begins on June 24th) will tighten the race when the first 300 words of each manuscript is revealed.

For you to read the first page of SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE, I need your help. Please go to: and vote for my novella.

Don't let the name T.G. Shepherd throw you. Remember, these entries had to share the name of a song title. Authors names are kept confidential in the early stages so they have listed the recording artist with the book title.

Next, please share the link with all your friends. Tweet it! Share it on FB and even on Pinterest and anything else you can think of. I PROMISE... when you need me to reciprocate in some form, I'll be there for you. Supporting each other is what we do!

And in the words of Bartles and James....

Thank you for your support!

Love and Hugs!
