Did you think I was going crazy and attempting skydiving? Actually I do think it would be fun, but I doubt I will ever get up enough courage to do it. No, the reason I titled this one skydiving was because of a sign I saw the other day. It said: If at first you don’t succeed, don’t take up skydiving. I loved that sign.

It got me thinking about the meaning behind it, although I did chuckle when I first saw it. There are some things we have to be careful pursuing–not everything is safe or good for us. We need to think carefully about what we want to go after or we might end up in a situation where we pull a cord and the chute doesn’t open up as we are plunging to earth. I’m a big advocate of the real saying, if at first you don’t succeed, try again. But there are some things we should never try in the first place.

I found out from my editor that I will have three books coming out next year in the first four months. January will be my Love Inspired Suspense, Heart of the Amazon, March another Love Inspired Suspense, So Dark the Night and in April my first book in a new series for Love Inspired titled Fostered by Love. The first book will be called Once Upon a Family.

This year my March book is When Dreams Come True. It received a 4 in Romantic Times and the reviewer, Melissa Parcel, said, “When Dreams Come True has a unique plot with realistic dilemmas. Margaret Daley gets to the heart of family issues and the struggle of Dane reconnecting with his wife and children.”
