A New Year…

I hope 2016 is off to a great start for you.  It’s off to a busy one around here, and I don’t just mean where writing is concerned.  Hubby and I are up to our necks in kitchen projects, and although we are hoping for a happy outcome, right now we’re a bit sore, achy, and quite possibly high on paint fumes.  It’ll be interesting to see how the paint fumes  affect my writing…

Got a few updates for you:

  1. There’s a chance that Amazon Encore will be putting the ebook version of The Bargain on sale on January 30th, so if you’re thinking of buying the book, you might want to hold out a few more days and see what happens to the price.  Fingers crossed…
  2. I just found out that WordPress has not been alerting me to comments that folks have left on this website, so I apologize for late responses.  Any time you have a question or comment, please do feel free to send me an email at christinesfeldman@gmail.com, and if you’ve had any trouble receiving your free ebook, be sure to check your spam folder.  (Sometimes the email ends up there.)
  3. There’s new cover art on the way for my Heavenly Bites novellas!  Seemed like it was time for an update.
  4. I’m close to wrapping up a draft of The Bloodline, a novelization of one of my screenplays that placed in screenwriting contests on both coasts.  Still needs some polishing, but it’s getting there…
  5. I’m just about ready to dive into my next contemporary story.  Looking forward to some love and laughter!  🙂

Take care out there, and if you’re an East Coaster, I hope you’re bundled up nice and warm!

FREEBIE Alert!

With it being smack dab in the middle of the holiday season, what better time to cozy up with a holiday read?  Or–even better–three holiday reads?  For free?

Release Day!

Yay!  Another Release Day has rolled around, and this time it’s for my latest romantic comedy, It Happened One Night:

ItHappenedOneNight 500x750-2

The book is up and running on Amazon and iTunes, and should be up any time now on Barnes & Noble, too.  (I’m not sure why it isn’t showing up on Barnes & Noble yet, although I am beginning to suspect it’s because someone there likes to watch me twitch…)

Initial reviews have been good–whew!–so if you’re in the mood to curl up for a quick, lighthearted read, consider checking it out, won’t you?  🙂

Now to get started on the next one…

9/30/15 (P.S.  It showed up on Barnes and Noble Wednesday morning, so I’ve updated the link.)

It’s Official!

While folks all around the country are sharing pics and news about their little ones’ first day back at school, I’m sharing news about my own little baby–namely, my upcoming romantic comedy It Happened One Night.  Release Day is official:  September 29th.  Yay!

ItHappenedOneNight 500x750-2

The book’s all set to go for release on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and–if I don’t fall down the formatting rabbit hole first–should be ready soon on Smashwords for distribution on iTunes, Kobo, and other ebook retailers.  Fingers crossed that I don’t pull out all my hair in the process…

Hope everyone has a great start to the school year!  🙂

It’s Like Christmas In July–No, Wait–August. My Bad…

I just wrapped up my latest manuscript, It Happened One Night, in which I’ve had my nose buried for some time now in my writer’s cave, so I can’t really be blamed for being a bit confused over what calendar month it is, right?  Right.

Thought I’d better pop out of the cave long enough to share some great book sale prices that are going on now, though, just in case one of them might be one you’re been considering buying but haven’t been able to squeeze into the budget.  Ready?  Here we go…

My debut novel, Coming Home, is part of a new 10-book bundle being released by Crimson Romance August 31st, and it’s up for preorder right now for just 73 cents on Amazon and 99 cents elsewhere.  I already preordered a copy for myself because, hey, it’s an affordable way for me to check out some other Crimson authors whose work I’m not yet familiar with.  It’s at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes for sure, and possibly at other ebook retailers as well:

9781440593963_3D-2

The Bargain, which is now part of Amazon Encore’s imprint–yay!–is on sale for 99 cents and available at Amazon only.  Don’t know how long–I’m afraid I’m out of the loop on this one.

The Bargain - new cover art

And finally, my romantic comedy All’s Fair in Love and Weddings is temporarily on sale at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and Smashwords for the next couple of weeks at the low, low price of 99 cents.

AllsFairinLoveandWeddings 200x300

Whew!  And there you have it.  I’ll stay out of my writer’s cave long enough to catch my breath and wait for beta reader feedback on my latest, and then it’s off to the wonderful world of writing again!

Have a good one!  🙂

Cover Reveal

Summer’s been a busy time for me.  How about you?  But in addition to several non-writing-related projects, I’ve been plugging away at another romantic comedy since I had so much fun writing Winging It.  (Hopefully you had fun reading it.)  I hope to be able to have it out by the end of August, but we’ll have to see…

Anyway, I thought I’d share the cover art and book blurb with you today, so here goes:

ItHappenedOneNight 500x750-2

Who has time for dating these days?  Certainly not struggling entrepreneur Paisley Jameson, who has way too much on her plate to pay any real attention to her shriveling social life.  And not mechanic Joe Spencer either, who has a lot on his mind with both the family business and family in general.  But neither can say no to the beloved mutual acquaintance who wants to set them both up on a blind date.

Which is too bad, because they both kind of wish they had said no when they show up for the dinner date and realize they’ve met before–and not under happy circumstances.

But fate seems determined to prove that they’re not so wrong for each other after all, because in spite of the intentions of both Paisley and Joe to nip this whole unfortunate blind date thing in the bud and go their separate ways, events transpire to keep them together for an evening involving muggers, foot-chases, and even a high-speed trip to the ER–

And that’s all before dessert.

Dating:  it’s not for wimps…

And there you have it.  Okay, off to finish writing the latest chapter…

Big News On The Amazon Front

I’m delighted to share the news that Amazon Encore has acquired the exclusive rights to the ebook version of my 2013 novel The Bargain.  Yay!  (And there was much rejoicing…) It is slated for re-release next Tuesday, June 16th, complete with new cover art.

And voila:

The Bargain - new cover art

The only real difference is the couple on the front and, of course, no more Crimson Romance logo on the front–although the old cover art will still be on the paperback.  The reason for the change is that the stock images used before were no longer available, so Amazon had to come up with a new guy and gal.  I think they did a good job, don’t you?

Right now the price is listed at $3.99, but I don’t know if that will be the actual price on release day or not.  So if you’re considering buying a copy, it might be worth waiting until next Tuesday just to see if there’s any special celebratory price.  Fingers crossed…

You can check the product page here to see the price–the book’s info is still in transition from the old page.

So there you have it!  🙂  And now I’m off to the writing cave again…

It’s Release Day!!!

WingingIt 200x300

Yay!  Release Day is finally here for Winging It, and it’s already gotten a couple of wonderful reviews on Amazon.  Now that’s the way I like to start a book release day!

There’s an excerpt up over at Read Your Writes today, plus the original reviews that were cross-posted to Amazon can be read at Tome Tender and A Reader’s Review, but here are a couple of highlights:

“…If you’re looking for an uplifting, laugh-out-loud fast read Winging It is definitely for you! It really stands out from many other rom-com reads in a very punchy and vibrant way. And, it will leave you wanting more!”

“…a short but fabulously funny tale of the adventures of a feathery flight from incarceration and the heroes who braved just about every mishap imaginable! Fast, furious and never without humor, Ms. Feldman has created one of the best feel good reads I have ever read!”

If you’re interested in reading the book for yourself, it’s available now on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and it should be appearing on iTunes, Kobo, and other major ebook retailers shortly.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!  🙂

Upcoming Release

Just a quick note to let you know my newest release–a romantic comedy novella called Winging It— is set to be released May 20th.  Elaina Lee over at For the Muse Designs did a wonderful job with the cover art, and I’m delighted to share it with you here:

WingingIt 500x750

Along with the book blurb:

Up until now, straitlaced Simon Kirkendale has done an admirable job of keeping his high society mother’s demands for grandbabies at bay, but lately she’s kicked things into high gear. So he isn’t too disappointed to delay her latest matchmaking attempt when a pretty stranger hops into the backseat of his car en route to one of his mother’s dinner parties and tells him to drive. A car-jacking? Nope. More like a bird on the run, but this particular bird happens to be a parrot who has slipped its cage, and Simon’s new acquaintance desperately needs to get it back before she loses sight of it altogether.

Ever the nice guy—and okay, maybe also a little intrigued by the colorful Miss Juleen Pruitt’s sudden appearance in his car—Simon hits the gas pedal and obliges only to find himself unwittingly dragged into a wild goose chase around town for a bird who seems to be determined to either get itself killed or the two people trying to catch it. Simon’s money is on the latter.

But it turns out that a little disruption and chaos in his life might just be what Simon needs most—especially if it comes in the form of Juleen.

If he can just manage to survive meeting her…

 And I’ll be putting up a page on the website with an excerpt shortly.  Have a lovely day!  🙂

The Times They Are A-Changin’…

You may have noticed a few changes on my website recently–unless of course you’ve never visited my site before, in which case you’re just going to have to take my word for it.  You can trust me, though.  I’ve got an honest face.

New header, new photo, new email subscription list for new releases and other special updates, AND other plans in the works.  Thanks to those “other plans,” I’ve got two bits of news to pass along:

1)  Pastels and Jingle Bells is now free on a number of ebook retailer sites; it’s in transition right now.  I’m really proud of that novella and of the reviews it’s gotten, and I’m hoping to share it with lots of new readers.  If all goes well, its sequel Love Lessons may be free as part of a special offer involving my email subscription list.  Fingers crossed that I get the technical side of it all worked out…

2)  My Heavenly Bites novella series and All’s Fair in Love and Weddings are now available on pretty much all the major ebook retailer sites.  Yay!  Click on the following links to see them on those sites.

Amazon

Barnes & Noble

Smashwords

iTunes

Kobo

Scribd

Plus I’m also working on a new manuscript, so… busy, busy, busy!
