July Starts Off With A Bang–And I Don’t Mean Fireworks

I woke up this morning to find a lovely review of my debut novel, Coming Home, on The Canon; thanks, Ellen!  Now that’s the way to start off a month!

Ellen’s site is a great one to check out if you’re looking for something new to read and you’d like a little input first.  So check out the review of Coming Home here, and then stick around and explore.

Have a great day, and good luck beating the heat.  I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to think the only hours that are cool enough for me to be awake are between 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m.  Which means I’d spend 4 hours a day being productive and 20 just hunkering down with a bag of ice and a fan, trying not to move.  Well, maybe if I really micromanage those 4 hours well, it could work…

Well Would You Look At That…

I just got a lovely surprise when I checked Book Chick City’s site and discovered they had a list called BCC’s Top 5 Books:  The best books you should be reading right now! and saw that Coming Home was on their list at number 5.  Now that’s the kind of surprise I like to find waiting for me on my computer!  A notification telling me that I’ve won the lottery would be nice, too, but I don’t want to appear greedy…

If you’d like to see the article, you can read it here.

Yay!  🙂

All Grown Up

I couldn’t resist adding a link to a new review site that has incorporated one of my book covers (Coming Home) into the banner at the bottom of its screen.  And…what a cool advertising opportunity por moi!

But, seriously, doesn’t it look pretty there?  All grown up and out in the real world…Sniff…I get sentimental about the most unexpected things.

See for yourself here, and take a look at Little Black Dress Reviews while you’re at it!

4.5 Star Review for Coming Home :)

A few minutes ago I discovered that Alex at Book Chick City gave Coming Home 4.5 star review on her site and had some lovely things to say about it.  Thank you, Alex!

If you’d like to check out her review, you can read it here.  I’m enjoyed reading it over and over and over…


Pretty Please With Sugar On Top

I just found out from my publisher today that books on Amazon can only become eligible for the Kindle Daily Deal promotions if they have at least 10 reviews, so I thought I’d fall to my knees and beg a favor of people out there who have read Coming Home and would be willing to post a review on Amazon.  (By the way, you’re looking positively gorgeous today…and have I mentioned that I just love what you’re doing with your hair?  Say the word, and I’ll be happy to lay on the compliments a little thicker because I can kiss up with the best of them…)

Coming Home has 8 reviews posted so far, so it just needs a couple more.  Reviews don’t have to be lengthy; just a couple of lines would work great.  Like “This book changed my life.  If everyone read it, we would finally see world peace.”  Or, you know, whatever you want to write.

Unless, of course, you hated the book.  In which case…

Never mind!  🙂

Just wanted to say a quick “thank you” to Cerian over at The Rookie Romance Blog for doing a spotlight on Coming Home!  If you’re looking for book recommendations, be sure to check out her site here.  She’s “across the pond,” so while my post is dated May 31st, hers is dated June 1st.  Whoa…trippy stuff, isn’t it?


Guest Blog/Interview

Fellow Crimson Romance author Galen Rose was kind enough to host me on her blog today and spotlight Coming Home.  If you’d like to read the interview, check it out here. Read Galen’s “About” page to learn more about her; she’s tried her hand at some pretty cool things–the Celtic jewelry bit caught my eye!

And check out her books, too!

Barnes & Noble Is Now On Board

Oh, happy day!  Barnes & Noble has finally made Coming Home available on their website for Nook users!  I’d be doing a happy dance if I wasn’t so tired from work…

If you have a moment and feel like checking it out here, I’d be grateful for some official “Likes” on the page.
