Book Blast Tour

November30

I tell you, mes amies, this book release has been quite a ride! In addition to releasing CHRISTMAS WITH YOU, book 3 in the Four Irish Brothers Winery series, my amazing publisher arranged a BookBub promotion of the first book in the series, A SMALL TOWN CHRISTMAS. The promotion was spectacular and resulted in putting that book in the #1 spot on the Amazon Kindle Free Books list for a few days. I was astounded and delighted at the read-through rate for book 2, MEANT TO BE and the newly released Christmas with You. Folks grabbed the free book and then immediately went back to download the other two in the series. Reviews have been fantastic and the read-through has even pushed sales of my Women of Willow Bay series. I’m so heartened and touched that readers like my free book enough to see what else is out there by Nan Reinhardt.

The fun continues starting December 2 and going through December 6 with a Book Blast Blog Tour for Christmas with You presented by Goddess Fish Promotions. So watch my Facebook page and Twitter for the places to go each day, where you can enter to win a $10 Starbucks gift card and a set of six handmade wine charms. I’m giving away five prize packages to five lucky winners in the continental US, so don’t miss the chance to enter.

In the meantime, enjoy the rest of this glorious holiday weekend–I’m stuffed full of turkey and cranberries and dressing and pie, are you? I’m hoping to work off some of the extra calories by heading to the new house to do some painting and cleaning to get ready for new carpet on Tuesday and then the movers on Thursday. Can’t wait to get in and make that sweet house our home. Then next Saturday, December 7, I’ll be at Whyte Horse Winery in Monticello, IN doing a book signing with my bestie, Liz Flaherty, whose new book THE HEALING SUMMER is now available at book retailers everywhere. There will be books and fun and wine and a drawing to win a gift bag full of goodies. If you’re in the area, stop by and see us!

Yeah, life is crazy busy right now and I’m pretty much going in twenty different directions, but I am so blessed and joy keeps me afloat. Gratitude for today: my life–right now, it’s pretty amazing. Remember, mes amies, hold your face to the sun, be grateful for all things, and love well. Oh, and keep in touch!

BookBub Day!

November23

A SMALL TOWN CHRISTMAS, Book 1 in the Four Irish Brothers Winery series from Tule Publishing is a BookBub Free book today through November 26! Don’t miss this chance to start the Flaherty brothers series! Don’t you just love a free book? It’s a great way to start a new series!

Reviews for A Small Town Christmas are wonderful, including this one: ” Nan Reinhardt at her best! I’m always a fan of setting, and Four Irish Brothers Winery is a great one. The story abounds with the sweet heat of a couple caught unaware, unsuspecting, and not particularly wanting to find romance. Add a charming little girl to the mix–not to mention the other Irish brothers!–and you have a great story for all times, but especially at Christmas. ” So, click and get it for free for a very limited time!

Winemaker and single father Conor Flaherty is determined to make this Christmas holiday special for his daughter even though his family’s winery, Four Irish Brothers, is facing some challenges.
High-octane Chicago attorney Samantha Hayes is looking forward to some delicious food, fine wine, small town charm, and a break from her hectic big city life when she agrees to do a favor for her boss and help his younger brother with a lawsuit that’s been slapped on his family’s historic winery in River’s Edge. She’s not expecting that her sexy new client will have a smile that will melt her heart and remind her that there’s more to life than work.
Sam falls hard for Conor, his daughter and the small, friendly town, but can she trust her instincts and risk her heart? Sam hasn’t seen a lot of happy-ever-afters in her life, but Conor and the magic of Christmas make her want to believe

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.

I’ve Got a Title

April26

Okay, okay, I know it’s Thursday again…how about we all agree that the Wednesday check-in is a very fluid concept. It’s been a crazy week and the next few are probably going to be just as crazy. There is just a little less than a month before we close on this house and begin camping out in Son’s basement until we find a new house. I’m basically just taking each day as it comes, but man, oh, man, each day is busier than the next. Our mover stopped by with a load of art boxes yesterday, bless him. When he asked how much art we had to pack, I really didn’t think there was all that much. Turns out, we have a lot of art and pictures hanging on our wall. Who knew?

We’re taking a very short break this weekend to go up to the lake. I haven’t been up yet since Husband opened the cottage and I need the water and my lake buddies and to be away ever so briefly.

Yikes…I’m already off-track, which seems to be my modus operandi lately. Title! After some back and forth with my fabulous publisher, Tule Publishing, the second book in the Four Irish Brothers Winery series finally has a title. <drumroll>> Sean and Megan’s story is titled Between Friends. I like it! It says what the story is about–friends to lovers. One of my very favorite romance tropes. I just got copy edits back and I’m reviewing them now, although I have to say, rather proudly, that the copy editor didn’t do much to this manuscript. She’s terrific and found stuff I missed in my 3,279 passes (I’m exaggerating for effect, it was really only about 3,264), so I really appreciate her hard work and sharp eye.

Between Friends coming Summer 2019

Gratitude for this week: As always, Husband, Son, DIL, Sister, and Grandboy; pal Lizzie, who keeps me centered when I think I may fall off the edge; spring in all her green glory–everything is sprouting and next week, I’ll have lilacs; SIL, Terri, is retiring today after a long career at a local university–so proud of her accomplishments and very happy for her as she begins a new chapter; and I’m always grateful to the team at Tule Publishing for all their support.

One of my fellow Tule authors, Melissa McClone, has a new indie book out today, The Reluctant Princess, book one in the new Her Royal Duty series. Check it out–it’s a fun read, and isn’t that a gorgeous cover?

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