It’s Release Day!–Well, Sort Of…

Okay, so maybe it’s not an official release day, but All’s Fair in Love and Weddings is now out in paperback, so I figure that’s close enough.  And I just saw that Amazon put it slightly on sale, too–marked down a whole 89 cents!  Woo hoo!

Here’s the link for those folks who want to take advantage of those tremendous savings…

And because it’s also St. Patrick’s Day, here’s a little festivity for you:

Have a very happy March 17th!  😀

If Winter Weather Has You Down…

This is generally the time of year when we all start longing for sunshine and warmer weather, and even though it’s been milder here in the Pacific Northwest, I haven’t exactly seen anybody jumping into their swimsuits yet.  (Then again, I don’t get out much…)  But that doesn’t mean we can’t all dream of a gorgeous day at the beach–and what better way to help that little fantasy along than with the aid of the perfect beach read?

Well, have I got a book for you!

That’s basically my way of saying that my romantic comedy set in the Virgin Islands–All’s Fair in Love and Weddings–is about to become available in paperback form.  See?

Much as I love the convenience of my Kindle, there’s just something special about that paperback smell as you turn the pages, know what I mean?

So barring any last minute glitches, the paperback should be up on Amazon sometime this March.  And then, yes, I will sleep with one under my pillow as I dream of sand and surf…

How about you?  🙂

Cover Reveal (Or, My Babies Are Growing Up)

An author’s books are sort of like her babies, and I love to coo over my babies as much as the next proud mama.  I haven’t started carrying photographs of my books around in my wallet yet, but that may not be far off…

Today I’m cooing a bit because my three Heavenly Bites novellas that have previously only been available as either Kindle or Nook ebooks are going to be available in paperback shortly, knock on wood.  Not as three individual paperbacks–because as novellas they would be pretty skinny and might wind up getting used as coasters more than as reading material–but as a collection.

So these three babies:

PastelsandJingleBells 200x300-1     LoveLessons 200x300     PlayingCupid 200x300

will soon be available in paperback with this cover:

I’m expecting a proof copy in the mail any day now, and if everything looks hunky-dory, this baby will be up on Amazon soon afterwards.  Can’t wait to hold a copy in my hot little hands!

Yep, I’m a proud mama.  🙂

Coming Soon…

Thanks to a heads-up from a fellow Crimson Romance author, I discovered this morning that there is a link on Amazon now for a paperback version of my second novel, The Bargain.  Yay!  I’m so excited!

At the moment there isn’t any cover art showing, and the book’s status is “Temporarily Out of Stock,” but it’s still a step in the right direction.  I’m going to hold off ordering any copies until it actually says they have them, but when they do… Look out!  I’ll be the first one in line to click on “Add to Cart.”  Multiple times.  And then I will cuddle with a copy of Coming Home AND The Bargain.  That’s normal, right?

If you’d like to check it out for yourself, here’s the link, but I wouldn’t pre-order it since I vaguely remembering having trouble doing that when the link for Coming Home first showed up.  People who waited until it actually showed as “In Stock” got their copies way before I did, and I finally ended up having to cancel the order and trying again.  I guess the early bird doesn’t ALWAYS get the worm.

Have a great day!  🙂

Guess What Finally Arrived In The Mail! (or…The Squealing Could Be Heard For Miles)

Look what finally shipped from Amazon and arrived on my doorstep today!

Words cannot express what it felt like to thumb through a paperback for a story I had written–surreal, maybe.  Thrilling isn’t a bad choice either.  I’m probably going to walk around holding a copy close to me for the next several days and then whip it out to show people whenever a chance presents itself:

“I’d like paper instead of plastic today, and–oh, look! See my book?”

“Fill ‘er up with regular please, and while we’re waiting for the tank to fill, take a look at this book I wrote!”

“Yeah, sorry, doctor.  I don’t really have an abnormal growth to show you today, I just wanted you to see THIS!”  [holds book up]

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must go do a happy dance…

I Will Sleep With One Under My Pillow

ComingHomeCover

In other words…my first published book, Coming Home, is officially available in paperback now through Amazon.  Pardon me while I squeal with delight:

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Okay, you can uncover your ears now.  No, wait, I feel another one coming on–

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Now I’m done.  For the time being, anyway.

But my first book in paperback is a very exciting thing!  Now I have to practice my “author” signature for all the MILLIONS of people who will no doubt be clamoring for me to sign their personal copies.  Well, at least my mother will…  But I can feel a certain giddy madness coming on that may result in me leaving signed copies under random people’s windshields in supermarket parking lots.  Hey, you have your marketing strategies, I have mine.

For some reason the paperback version still isn’t correctly linked to the ebook version on Amazon–the course of modern technology never did run smooth–but hopefully that will be fixed before too much longer.  But if you’d like to see it with your own eyes, here’s the paperback link.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Sorry.
