In mid-January (new year, new decisions, right?), I decided on a big life change. I was going home…
Back East. Back to South Carolina. Back to the red clay soil of the Piedmont area and the only family I have left.
So, I began looking around for a new home. First, I had to sell my house in Texas, and that happened lightning quick. We listed it on the MLS Friday night and by Monday—with the realtor’s sign never having gone up—it was under contract at above listing price! Now, I’m in a pickle. In approximately a month, I’ll have nowhere to go.
The housing market in my hometown of Anderson, SC is really tight now. It’s definitely a seller’s market. I lost 5 houses before I could get a contract in on them. There was a house in the area of town where I wanted to buy, a brick ranch with a side sunroom ad a turquoise door. I thought it was really cute, but never had interest in looking at it because I thought it was too small…not that I need a palace…but the rooms appeared smallish in the listing photos.
In mid-February, I went home to look at houses. I still didn’t want to look at this one. For the space, I thought it was overpriced. I went back to Texas ‘empty-handed’. Finally, my realtor talked me into sending my aunt to look at the little brick house.
She loved it!
It has a marvelous chef’s kitchen, for one thing, and it was much bigger than I thought. So then the negotiations began. The long-and-short of it, several offers and counteroffers flew back and forth, but in the end, I have a contract on the brick house right beside a big Baptist church separated by a tall, white picket fence.
Next post will most likely be from the Palmetto State.
But this is a Paranormal Romance blog. Well, I have 3 paranormal romances now available in audio:
Love For Sale is about Christian and March. March is a disenchanted dreamer. Christian is her dream man, but…inside he’s all circuits and wires while outside he is perfectly human and programmed to love her unconditionally.
Morgan D’Arcy: A Vampyre Rhapsody is an anthology of stories told by my favorite of my characters. Morgan is an English lord, a concert pianist...and a vampire.
Love for Sale and Rhapsody are read by a woman with a lovely British accent and are enchanting to listen to. Here are the links:
Her General in Gray is a ghostly love story. Think the Ghost and Mrs. Muir.
Can you believe it is March already?!
