Shhh…it’s a secret!

Love Under Wraps - Read all 3 Happy dance!!! I’m so excited to announce that the Love Under Wraps stand-alone series kicks off tomorrow. Yea!!! I’ve been waiting for this for a long time…because I’m one of the authors involved–so, yeah. 🙂

I’ll be giving away free ebooks as each book releases, so check in here, or join the Stuck on Love FB page so you don’t miss out on the fun. Also, if you have a birthday, you should join the page so you can be in our monthly bday drawings as well. Winning is fun.

The Love Under Wraps series contain 3 forbidden romances written by 3 different authors. Taylor is from Texas, I’m from central Utah, and Mylissa is from Belgium. Taylor drove through Utah on her way to see grandkids recently, so she met me at an Olive Garden and we probably drove the waiter crazy because we just talked and talked and talked. For a long time. And we could’ve talked longer. Sadly, Mylissa could only be with us by picture (so we couldn’t talk–although we talk a ton on emails–yea for emails!). Here we all are together (kind of).

I wish you could know these authors as I’ve come to know them. They are not only talented, but they are kind–which is the best praise I feel I can give to someone these days. They truly have become my friends, and I hope you can connect with their amazing spirits as you read their books in the next month or so. Here is the release schedule.

Nov 1: TOMORROW! Heart Thief by Taylor Dean. I will post about this then, and announce a giveaway. So stay tuned.

Dec 1: Mylissa Demeyere’s book, Rules Are Made to be Broken, will release. Isn’t her cover so cute?

Jan 1: My book, A Wrinkle in Forever, will end the stand-alone series on New Year’s.

To end, I’ll just leave this link to the song that Mylissa chose to inspire us all from the beginning. It’ll give you a little peek into what you’re in for with these books.

 

Tour de Highway – Kansas

Well, Dorothy. We’re in Kansas today. We’ve zipped all over the U.S. on this biking book tour as you can see from the map below. From Utah to Texas and on to Nebraska. If you’ve missed any of the action, here’s a quick summary of the stops we’ve made so far:

Now we’re pulling into Kansas where my good friend, Michelle Terry, is spotlighting Between Hope & the Highway. Whoohoo!

I hope you’ll join my book and I over at Michelle’s for some more prairie-fied goodness. Michelle is the most genuine, authentic woman I know. Once I stumbled onto her blog, I couldn’t leave. She is one of the kindest people I know…and funny. I know you’ll love her too. If you haven’t grabbed a copy of my book  yet, it just went down in price this week…so lucky you.

Happy reading…and biking.

The book race continues. Between Hope & The Highway started in Utah, pedaled down to different points in Texas to meet with authors–Maria Hoagland and Taylor Dean. Now we have busted our buns up to Nebraska (pant, pant) to be interviewed by my good author friend, Gina Barlean. I hope you can join us to cheer my book on down the highway. The more the merrier.

She’s interviewing me and providing a sneak peak into Between Hope & the Highway by providing an excerpt for you to read. Hope you enjoy. Thanks for cheering me and my book along on this endurance race all over the country. With fans like you, we can’t go wrong. Now join us over at Taylor’s site.

The Bird and the Sword

41ifwvwc9fl-_sx331_bo1204203200_I hope everyone had an awesome Memorial Day weekend. I spent time in Park City, UT with a bunch of family for a reunion. Family and food. Two of my favorite things all bunched together…so I loved it. A couple weeks ago, I finished Amy Harmon’s newest book, The Bird and the Sword. This book was awesome, and even though I’m surrounded by boxes and cleaning supplies that are shouting my name right now because we move in exactly one week (YIKES!), I wanted to do justice to this spellbinding piece. It deserves praise…even if I feel like Cinderella right now (emphasis on the cinder part). Continue reading

Love is Come

edwardian woman looking at a steam trainIt’s the start of another month…and that means I get to tell you about the next book in the Power of the Matchmaker series. April’s book is by Heather Moore. And that’s no April Fool’s joke. Here’s the blurb:

Nelle Thompson lives a life of privilege during the turn of the century New York City. When her parents are killed in a terrible accident, she’s forced to live with her aunt’s family in a small town in Connecticut, and treated as a poor relation with no financial independence. Broken-hearted and riddled with insomnia, Nelle’s health begins a downward spiral. When a locked part of her heart blossoms around her cousin’s fiancĂ© Mathew Janson, Nelle doesn’t know if she can endure one more heartbreak. Miss Pearl, owner of the local apothecary shop, becomes a mother figure to Nelle, but a fateful summer day has Nelle questioning everything she’s ever believed and wondering if she’ll ever love again.

Energize your Writing

ImageI’m guest posting over at Rebecca Belliston’s blog today during her March Book Madness series. The topic is how to energize your writing. Here’s the link if you want to pop on over and read it. She has a bunch of authors posting about different writing topics all month, so you might be pulled in and want to stay a while. If for no other reason than to see my awesome horse meme I made, you should go…like right now. Neigh! 

What the Goose? It’s a FREE deal.

2015-05-15 17.14.39We have lots of these beauties where I live. They can be majestic at times…and downright terrifying at others. When it’s mating season, don’t mess with them. I’ve had a male attack my van tire as I was driving down the street and he thought I was too close to his woman. I’ve also seen two male geese fighting in the air and knock into a lady ahead of me on the trail and about scare the bejeebers out of her (if you don’t know what bejeebers are…just wait until a goose attacks you and you’ll know EXACTLY what they are).

When I saw this goose proudly claiming this bench in my favorite park…I let him have it.

What the goose does any of this have to do with a FREE deal. Absolutely nothing. Geese just were on my mind for some weird reason (due to my son’s evil genius mind). Continue reading
