Cover Reveal AND Preorder Links!

October7

I am overwhelmed with pleasure about the cover for my latest book, Christmas with You–Book 3 in the Four Irish Brothers Winery series from Tule Publishing. Lee Hyat, the cover designer has so nailed my brothers with each cover and Aidan’s is no exception. She got my sweet, hunky actor down to a T! Check it out and then click to preorder Christmas with You. It’ll show up on your e-reader on November 21. Also, here’s the blurb for the story. I sure hope y’all are as excited as I am!

She’s loved him all her life… but will he be there when she needs him the most? 
Disheartened and adrift after being written out of a hit TV show, actor Aidan Flaherty returns to his family’s historic winery, where he’s invested some of the fortune he’s made. As the holidays approach, Aidan becomes intrigued with the old showboat that’s dry-docked just east of town… and even more intrigued with the daughter of his former mentor, who now owns it. He decides to buy the boat and restore it to its former glory.
Single mom Holly Santos is back in River’s Edge after her divorce and she is over men in general and actors in particular. If she could only get rid of her father’s old showboat, a source of fascination for her son, Mateo. She never expects her old crush to walk into her tea shop or the fireworks that happen every time they’re in the same room.
Can Aidan convince her that he is determined to restore their shared heritage on the showboat and that he’s home to stay?

Day 9: Gratitude and Happy Birthday to Tule!

September9

It’s my publisher’s 6th birthday! Tule Publishing has officially released 600 books and been in business for six years! Here’s to many more years of publishing wonderful stories by lots of great authors (me, too!) and to me having a long career with Tule!

Well, no new houses to see, although our portal keeps getting new ones posted. Just not our house. We looked at two that were not our house, so I’ve decided to try to adopt a zen attitude–if it’s the right house, we will know it when we see it. I just can’t spend too much more time with a house-hunting knot in my stomach.

Edits on book 3 arrived and after a long talk with my editor, I stopped crying and started working on ways to develop Holly. She needs developing. So that is my mission for the next couple of weeks. Hold a good thought, okay?

Gratitude for today:
Oatmeal for breakfast
Lovely 3/4 moon tonight
Finished Kristin Higgins’s new book Life and Other Inconveniences–excellent read!
Saw a whole yard full of gladiolas today–they were exquisite!
Iced tea

Book Blitz Time!

Sign up to participate in my Xpresso Book Blitz

As I mentioned last week, I’m working on promotion for MEANT TO BE, Book 2 in the Four Irish Brothers Winery series. It’s Sean Flaherty and Megan Mackenzie’s story and I’m just crazy in love with these two characters. Friends-to-lovers is one of my favorite romance tropes and this is the first time I’ve used it since The Summer of Second Chances (Book 3 in the Women of Willow Bay series), although Sophie and Henry were more colleagues than friends.

What makes this theme fun to write is the fact that the characters already know each other. There’s no getting-to-know-you period in their romance. They have history (okay, yes, it’s a history that I’ve created), so I don’t have to invent first-meeting scenes or first dates or awkward meet-cutes. Not that those scenes aren’t fun to write, too, but this was a different path for me and I enjoyed it.

When you write romance that takes place in a small town, inevitably the main characters are going to know each other already unless you bring someone new to town as I did with Samantha Hayes in A Small Town Christmas (Book 1). Sean and Megan’s story was fun because I did get to create their history with tidbits of events that happened from the time they met in fifth grade.

If you are book blogger and would like participate in the Xpresso Book Tours Book Blitz for Meant to Be, please click and sign up. There will be fun excerpts and giveaways and general merriment. And if you’re a reader who’s been looking forward to the next Four Irish Brothers Winery story, your wait is nearly over! Meant to Be is available for pre-order now and releases on July 18. Enjoy! Enjoy!

As always, mes amies, remember to hold your face to the sun, be grateful for all things, and love well.

Promo Is Scary

June5

I’m deep into book promo for Meant to Be, Sean and Megan’s book in the Four Irish Brothers Winery series that I’m writing for Tule Publishing. It releases on July 18, but is currently available for pre-order. I confess I’m not a good self-promoter. (However, I can stick a convenient link into a blog post with little trouble.) Most of the writers I know aren’t good at it. Promotion means coming out of our little writing caves and interacting with the reading public. I wish I could describe how intimidating that is.

Although when I’m with my tribe, I’m pretty outgoing, I don’t do well with crowds of strangers, whether physical or virtual. I’m getting better as I get more experience at promo, but all in all, I’d rather write. Fortunately, for me, I have a great publisher, who really promotes my work and encourages me to do the same.

So, I’m hip-deep in it–creating graphics, contacting book bloggers, coming up with giveaway ideas, paying promoters, and just generally marketing the heck out of my newest story. Here’s hoping it all pays off big for the Four Irish Brothers Winery series. Hold a good thought, won’t you? And hey, if you haven’t pre-ordered MEANT TO BE yet, slip on over to your favorite eBook retailer and click. Sure would appreciate it!

Until next week, mes amies. remember to hold your face to the sun, be grateful for all things, and love well.

Cover Reveal!

May27

Here it is, kids! The gloriously gorgeous cover for Book 2 in the Four Irish Brothers Winery series from yours truly and Tule Publishing. New title is MEANT TO BE and fits Sean Flaherty and Megan Mackenzie’s friends-to-lovers story to a T! The cover captures this engaging couple perfectly! I’m so excited about this book–it’s not just a fun romantic story about two friends who find themselves falling in love, but it’s also a chance to revisit River’s Edge and catch up with the Flahertys. MEANT TO BE releases on July 18, but is available now for pre-order, so please click and let’s rocket Sean and Meg to the top of the bestseller list!

Can a near-tragedy help two best friends realize they’re meant to be so much more?
Best friends since grade school, high-powered Chicago attorney, Sean Flaherty, and small-town mayor Megan Mackenzie have always shared a special bond. When Sean is shot by a client’s angry ex, Megan rushes to his side, terrified she’s about to lose her long-time confidant.
Upon his return to River’s Edge to recuperate, Sean discovers that his feelings for his pal have taken an undeniable turn for the romantic. While Megan struggles with an unfamiliar longing for Sean, she worries that he may be mistaking a safe place to land for love. 
Can Sean help her realize that they are truly meant to be so much more than friends?

Until next week, mes amies, remember to hold your face to the sun, be grateful for all things, and love well.
