I have some exciting news to share with everyone (at least I'm excited!). The weekend of April 29th I'll be attending the Barbara Vey Reader Appreciation Weekend. It'll be my third time to attend and I sooooooo enjoy it every time - it's such fun to be able to interact with readers and other authors in this way.
And here's the exciting part - this year I'll be hosting a fun early bird event - a Book Cover Bingo! I and four other fabulous authors (who also happen to be friends of mine) will be participating. These lovely and talented ladies are: Sharon Sala, Lenora Worth, Holly Jacobs and Liz Talley.
There will be special gifts for the first 120 or so to walk through the door as well as some fabulous prizes for the winners of our bingo games. So I hope if you're in the Milwaukee area on Friday April 29th you'll drop in and participate. You can learn more about the event at the Barbara Vey Reader Appreciation Weekend website.
I'm also very excited to announce that I have a new (sort of) book out this month. The very first book I released, way back in 2001, has been given new life by the fine folks at Redbook Press. The title is A Matter Of Trust and check out the cover over in the sidebar. Because this was my very first book it is very near and dear to my heart and I hope that it will find a place in the hearts of readers who missed it the first time as well.
As for my Texas Grooms series, the eigth book, Texas Cinderella, is now completed and in the hands of my editor. You can look for it to be released in September. I'm now in the early plotting stages of the next book, which will feature Hazel Andrews, the flamboyant town seamstress, and the overly-serious Sheriff Ward Gleason. I'm having a really good time delving into their story. And I'll be sharing more on that in the coming months.Don't forget to take a look at the great guests I have lined up for my Spotlight Interviews.
For March, the fabulous Jane Porter will step into my spotlight. She's provided some really terrific information in her interview responses and I think you're really going to enjoy reading what she has to share with you. You can see her interview over on my AUTHOR VIP page for a little longer.
Jane has also generously agreed to give away two prizes this month! A copy of The Taming of the Sheenans Anthology to one of my lucky newsletter subscribers and a signed copy of Flirting with Forty to another!. If you haven't already done so, head on over to my CONTEST page to sign up for my newsletter and be entered to win!
- In my Industry Spotlight this month, I'm featuring Author Assistant Kate Tilton. Be sure to check out her interview on my INDUSTRY VIP page!
Last but not least, here's my quote for the month.
You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don't trust enough.
