Time To Celebrate!

Today we’re celebrating reaching 1,000 Likes on Facebook, having a fourth book just recently released, and heck–just life in general. Plus the fact that it appears I’ve successfully gotten my first Rafflecopter giveaway up and running on Facebook!

Although I may have just jinxed it by saying that… Oops.

If you’re on Facebook, hop over and check it out–there’s a $20 Amazon gift card up for grabs. Click here to see for yourself.   🙂

I also wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone who has bought one of my books, posted a review, and helped make 2013 a memorable year.

Thank you!!!

It’s Here! It’s Here! It’s Here!!!

Release day for Pastels and Jingle Bells is finally here!  Yippee!  And it actually showed up on Amazon and Barnes & Noble!  Woo hoo!  Now if I can just beat this cold I seem to have developed, I’ll be a happy camper…

PastelsandJingleBells 200x300-1

The first novella in my Heavenly Bites series is now up for sale on Amazon and Barnes & Noble for the bargain price of 99 cents!  In celebration of that lovely fact, there are a few different spotlights and giveaways happening online right now.  Check them out:

Read Your Writes Book Reviews:  Review and Giveaway

Indie Brits:  Spotlight

So Many Reads:  Review

Romance With Flavor:  Giveaway

Heroes and Heartbreakers:  Extended Excerpt

And I’m hoping a few more posts and reviews show up later in the day, too.  I’M SO EXCITED!!!

Sorry, didn’t mean to shout…  🙂

Release Day

TheBargainCover

It’s here!  It’s here!  (Ooo, I just had a flashback to my childhood and Christmas mornings) Well, it isn’t Christmas, but it feels a little like Christmas in July to me because The Bargain is finally out there in the world for everyone to see!

Boy, I hope that’s a good thing…  [bites fingernails]

But although the reviewer from Book Chick City who read it hasn’t posted her actual review yet, I did see on Goodreads that she rated it 5 stars and will post an actual review later.  Yay!  5 stars!!!  So I figure that’s a good sign.

To celebrate release day, I’m a guest on a couple of other blogs today.  I’m doing an author interview on HJ Harley’s blog here; she’s gotten tremendous feedback on her novel Finding Jordie, by the way, so you might want to check it out.  I’m also doing a giveaway and a guest post on RR@H Novel Thoughts and Book Talk in which I do my best to alert the general public to some potential romantic scenario pitfalls you might not have anticipated.  Check it out here, and maybe you can rest a little easier next time you plan a romantic outing with your sweetie.

Happy Monday–and happy reading!

Giveaways, Spotlights, and Reviews–Oh, My!

July is turning out to be a pretty busy month for me.  How about you?

This morning The Bargain is being spotlighted on Book Binge as part of DFRAT, which is the digital-first readathon and celebrates ebooks.  There is another giveaway and another copy of the book up for grabs here, and frankly I’m just happy as a clam to be included in this event.  Thanks, Book Binge!

I also woke up this morning to discover my very first official review for The Bargain on My Daily Romance.  My stomach was in knots before I read it, but fortunately the reviewer enjoyed the book and was very complimentary, so it looks like I won’t have to throw up after all.  Yay for me!  To read the review or just check out the rest of the site, click here.  (And thank you, Amy, for the review!)

Giveaways Galore

Got another giveaway for you!  This time I’m being hosted by Stella on Ex Libris, and I’m talking about the charms of mismatched couples.  (Thanks, Stella!)  Check it out here, and please do leave a comment in order to be eligible for a Kindle copy of The Bargain.

And while I’m hoping you’ll participate in my giveaway–ahem–there are lots of other giveaways happening on her site all the time, so it really is worth your while to check it out.

So who are some of your favorite mismatched couples of all time?  And you can’t say King Kong and Fay Wray, because I already called that one…  🙂

Another Chance To Win

Okay, so it’s still not a car, but you CAN win a copy of The Bargain plus a $10 Amazon gift card (which maybe you could apply toward a car?  Who knows?  You can buy just about anything off Amazon these days).

Today Karielle at Books A La Mode has been kind enough to host me on her site as I go around promoting the release of The Bargain.  Thanks, Karielle!  Check it out here and leave a comment to be eligible to participate in the giveaway, then take a tour of her site, which is all about books and more.

Ex Libris Guest Post

Today I’m a guest blogger on the book review site Ex Libris–thanks for having me, Stella!  The topic is things I’ve learned from reading romance novels, and I hope you’ll enjoy it.  You can check it out here, if you’re interested.

I’m also participating in a giveaway by offering a $10 Amazon gift card to one lucky commenter.  Just FYI…

Have great day!

Glamour & The Real World: Guest Blog

Today I am a guest blogger on the RR@H Novel Thoughts & Book Talk Website.  The topic is glamour and the real world, with a specific emphasis on kindergarten since, you know, that’s kind of my specialty.  They also showcase my book, Coming Home.  Please feel free to check it out and leave a comment on their site to enter a drawing for a $10 Amazon gift card.

Hope to see you there!

(P.S.  Happy tax day)
