More Book Love

huckleDoesn’t this picture make you salivate? It does me.  And it goes right along with my new book, Game Changer. Huckleberry ice cream plays a huge part in Meridee’s and Parker’s friendship-turning-into-more relationship. Ice cream usually does help any romance along, at least in my opinion. And this one, from Ferdinand’s Ice Cream Shop in Pullman, Washington, looks especially divine. My cookie/ice cream/chocolate monster appears, and I say: ME WANT SOME!!!

The book monster inside me has been especially happy as well with all the kind reviews being left about Game Changer. If you haven’t written a book before, you might not get an author’s fascination over reviews. But let me tell you. We crave them. Like Cookie Monster craves cookies. Like I know you’re craving that huckleberry ice cream. Continue reading

Redeem This – Blog Tour

I’m excited to introduce you to Cami Checkett’s newly released book, Redeem This. It’s the sequel to Blog This, and both are suspenseful romance with lots of action.

Some men are beyond redemption. Alex is one of them.

After Alex Chakhota was blackmailed and manipulated into becoming a hit man to protect his sister, serving time as the FBI’s assassin doesn’t do much to ease his conscience. His next assignment brings him face to face with Brittany, a beautiful woman that believes he’s more than the killer he’s been made into. The road to redemption is long for someone with a blackened soul, and with lives hanging in the balance, Alex has a short deadline. Continue reading

Tour de Hands – Day 7

file0001299095800Today’s leg of the race is taking my books to the great state of Utah where Cami Checketts is at the finish line to hug my books with a little review. They’re over halfway done with the tour and are a little winded, having started in Texas, kicked it cross-country to Cape Cod, narrated in their sleep in Nebraska, and caught air in Kansas before heading to the mountains for some strenuous uphill cycling.

Tour de Hands – Day 6

file0001156906573And the race continues. This tour has covered a lot of area over the last two weeks. My books have traveled to Texas, cycled to Cape Cod, napped in Nebraska after covering a grueling Midwest section of the race.

But today they’re kicking it into high gear to reach Kansas, where my good friend, Michelle Terry, is interviewing the team while we take a breather in Topeka. I hope you’ll show your support by reading her article. Continue reading

Tour de Hands – Day 5

P8140329Yeehaw! My books are on the go again after a nice break at Taylor Dean’s site last week in Texas. Now they’ve traveled up to the great state of Nebraska and are stopping for another pit stop at Gina Barlean’s farm. Gina is another friend of mine who I wish to meet in person. She’s an awesome writer who has also been a tremendous support. She read my series and even beta-read the last book and gave me feedback. I’m so grateful to connect with her through our writing.

Rules in Rome

Exciting news! My writing friend, Amanda Sowards, has released a new book, The Rules in Rome. Amanda is a WWII historical fiction writer. I’ve read her other three books and loved them, so was super excited to be a part of her blog tour today! I hope you will sit back and enjoy learning more about her newest work.

SYNOPSIS

With Hitler’s forces firmly entrenched in Europe, countless heroes seek to end the madman’s reign. Bastien Ley is one of the best. Working in Italy for the Office of Strategic Services, he’s been tasked with sabotaging German convoys. When his team kills an officer headed for Rome, the man’s similarity to Bastien is undeniable, and seeing an opportunity to turn the tide of the war, Bastien makes a bold decision: he will assume the dead officer’s identity. He becomes Dietrich, an Iron Cross–wearing German officer—an ideal position from which to infiltrate the Nazi ranks in Rome. To help with his stressful assignment, his superiors send him a reinforcement in the form of the lovely Gracie Begni, an intelligent and eager radio operator with absolutely no undercover experience. Continue reading

Tour de Hands – Day 4

file5231241720377It’s been a crazy race of words this week. My Bending Willow Books have traveled from Texas to Cape Cod, and back to Texas. They’re hanging out at Taylor Dean’s blog for the next week until Phase 2 of our Tour de Hands begins. My books need time to rest their legs. (Yes, they have legs, and they’re tired). Currently, Hands of Mercy is in the lead, so go cheer Hands on (hee hee–no pun intended). Continue reading
