Awards, Preorders and A New Year… oh my!

Holy cow the New Year is here! Just a couple more days and we’ll be in 2020. I feel like December flew by especially fast this year, but maybe that’s just a sign of me getting older. 🙂

Okay, so today, I’ve actually got a bunch of stuff to share with you, so rather than drone on about my kids and schedule, I’ll jump right to it, okay?

I am THRILLED to announce that I have been nominated for a “Swoony Award”. YAY! Swoony awards are based on sweet/clean romance and basically any book published during the year can be put in the nominations and my whole ‘Overnight Billionaire Bachelors’ series is in there, as well as 2 of my Middleton Prep stories (they’re under fairy tale retellings)

To see all the nominated titles you can go here:  LIST


To vote, you can go here:  VOTE

If you feel so inclined, I’d love to get a few votes! My book are in the billionaire and fairy tale retelling categories. But there are tons of great stories on that list, so be sure to vote for your favorites. 🙂 Oh! And voting ends tomorrow, the 31st! So be sure to jump on it quickly!

And if nothing else, that list is a fantastic resource of clean romances for those of you looking for something fun. 

Speaking of something fun, do you remember what series I promised to put out in January? If you said the Lockwood Brothers, you are correct! The series is called, “Lockwood Industries” and book #1 is in preorder! It’s releasing January 13th. Only 2 weeks! Whew! You can find it in my book offerings today if you’re interested in grabbing it while it’s only .99. 

I will be rapid releasing the first 3 books in this series, so book #1 won’t be at launch price for very long. As soon as book #2 “Her Quiet Bodyguard” comes out, book #1 will go up to it’s normal 2.99 price point. (just an fyi) 🙂

Alrighty, I told you about the voting and the preorder, so I think now it’s time to let you check out a few fun, new releases! Have a wonderful New Year and I’ll see you next Monday!

An Early Celebration!

Have I ever told you that at my house Christmas time isn’t just Christmas time? Yeah… we actually have 2 birthdays right before Christmas and my husband’s right after New Years. That was well planned, huh? 

So last night we had a big birthday party for both my boys at the same time with all our family. It always makes for a crazy time when all 25 relatives are over. And those are just the ones who live close! 😀 In all seriousness, we adore living close to everyone and it’s so good for my kids to have family nearby.

My youngest turned 8 yesterday, which happens to be a big birthday in my religion and he was strutting around like a peacock all day. Then he was going crazy when all his cousins arrived… no sugar needed! My oldest turns 15 this week and he’s a little more low key about it all. (thank goodness)

And now… there are so many wonderful Christmas romances bursting through the gate right now! I’m thrilled to have a few to share with you. Enjoy!

Ready for Another Christmas Story?

It’s Birthday Week!

As you may have guessed from the subject line today, this week is my birthday! Woot! Although I do not plan on admitting how old I am getting, I am planning to share some fun goodies with you! 🙂 On top of my normal book offerings, I rounded up some FREEBIES to share with you. I mean, afterall, you know what they say? It’s better to give than to receive, and I so… I wanted to give back to all of you who have supported me during this last year.

It’s been a wild ride getting this author gig off the ground, but I have loved it and I look forward to continuing to move forward. 🙂 And I absolutely could NOT have done it without the help of all of you wonderful readers. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for generosity, your support and your patience as I continue to learn and grow in this craft. And so… without further ado, I will share all my book offerings today. First will be our normal new releases, the freebies will be at the bottom with just the titles. (in order to keep the email shorter, I won’t be putting all the book covers in)

So load up your kindle/reading devices and have a party for me! 🙂

A Plethora of Pumpkins!

Happy Almost Fall! 🙂 In just a few days we hit the first official day of Fall and I have to admit I’ve already been prepping. Now… for those of you who have been with me for awhile, you know I’m a total sun girl. Beach, sun, waves… THAT is my very favorite thing of all. However, there’s something soothing about fall. Right now there’s a nice, consistent rain going on, the sound is soft and peaceful. The grey skies help counteract the glare of the summer sun and the rich, emerging colors are always amazing.

Yesterday we harvested our pumpkins and for once, my front porch actually looks decorated. I’m TERRIBLE at decorating, whether inside or out of my house, but right now… I look pretty good. Yesterday we pulled 65 pumpkins. I live on just under an acre and have a decent sized garden, so we let things like pumpkins and melons have free reign. In fact, would you like to see what we pulled? Here ya go!

Aren’t those fun? You can’t see them very well, but there are some that are covered in warts and they are my FAVORITE! So fun and Halloweeny. 🙂 Okay, okay, enough pumpkin bragging. I think it’s time to move on to more important matters, like helping you find a fun book to read this week! I’ve got some great ones to share. Take a look!

She’s loved him forever.

He’s been too blind to notice.
