I  love release days, but this anthology is another one I’ve been waiting for for months! Summer romances are some of my all-time favorites to read and write, and my newest story is in  Craving My Roommate , a steamy contemporary romance collection of the best romantic beach novellas by some of my favorite friends/authors. My story in this anthology,   A Room with a Groom , is the final romance novella in the saga of Ben Mosby and Sophie Sinclair, the hero and heroine of  The Brightest Christmas Star  and  His Wildest Sunflower . In  A Room with a Groom , Ben and Sophie are on the way to their long-awaited wedding–until everything falls apart. This book is part of the  Kingsmill Courtships Contemporary Romance Novella Series , a collection of stories about Gage Mosby–a retired Army Ranger–who plans to secretly marry off all of his restless nieces and nephews. This week, this anthology is .99. But the price will go up next week to $3.99 when it also goes into KU (Kindle Unlimited). Crav

That One Summer Romance Anthology

I   love release days, but this anthology is one I’ve been waiting for for months! Summer romances are some of my favorites to read and write, and my newest hot summer story is in  That One Summer , a steamy contemporary romance collection of the best summer beach novellas by some of my favorite friends/authors.   My story in this anthology,  The Summer Promise , is the romance of Lily Dunmore and Gage Mosby–how they fall in love (again!) and come up with a plan to save their town of Kingsmill, Virginia. This book is part of the  Kingsmill Courtships Contemporary Romance Novella Series , and it’s also the origin story of why Gage Mosby–a retired Army Ranger–plans to secretly marry off all of his restless nieces and nephews. If you preorder now, you can get the entire collection for .99. But the price will go up a week next week, on June 18th. That One Summer A Limited Edition Romance Anthology Your summer just got a whole lot hotter… Dive into a scorching summer with this limited editi
First, I want to say thank you to all who commented on the last post. I know this blog has been neglected, but I am so grateful to all of the readers here. If you didn't read, I couldn't write. So my gratitude comes from the heart.  Anyway, I  feel like I’m always saying this, but it’s no joke that the publishing world works on its own calendar. That means this time of year is not just about summer vacations, AC repairs, and bug spray. It’s also the time for Christmas cover reveals!   I don’t just love writing these kinds of stories, I am also an avid reader of Christmas and holiday novellas. So this year I joined a number of holiday anthologies, including the  Winter Wishes & Holiday Kisses Limited Holiday Anthology . This collection releases on November 12, 2024, and today I’m sharing the cover and preorder link.  Although our stories are novellas, they’ll be packed with all the holiday angst and feels! The stories span mid-to-high heat levels, from sweet-and-sexy to supe

Beyond Courage - Where Love Conquers All

  I’m so excited to announce a new project I’ve joined with a bunch of my writer friends:   Beyond Courage Military Romance Anthology!  This is an anthology I’ve been really looking forward to, and it’s another step forward in my   Deadly Force Romantic Suspense Series.  My story in this collection,   A Treacherous Beauty, is a romantic suspense retelling of the Psyche and Eros myth —   if Eros was a Fianna warrior.  ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d tell you more, but then… well, you know.   LOL.  In this anthology, at least one of the main characters has been or is still in the military, and all of the these stories offer exciting suspense-filled stories with happily ever afters that are guaranteed to require many, many tissues and lots of cups of hot tea (or coffee, depending on how late you stayed up reading!).  The preorder price has been set at .99, but the price will go up after the anthology releases on September 10, 2024. So don’t waste time and grab your copy today!

Searching for Ever After

I  have been in my writing cave working on more and more manuscripts, but I’m taking a break today to share the cover of one of my two February releases.  Wedding Tails  is a project I’ve undertaken with some of my Sourcebooks sisters, and it started when we all wondered what would happen if we each wrote a novella based in our story worlds (mine is the  Deadly Force  world) where there was a wedding and a dog and many of our favorite characters. And it would be released on Valentine’s Day! Since book 3 in my Deadly Force series,  In Search of Truth , has a dog named Nicholas Trott and ends with the engagement of Zack and Allison, I knew I had to write their wedding story. I also need them to be married in the next book in the series,  A Promise at Midnight  (Alex and Maddie’s story). (Oh, the problems of authors writing a long-standing series!) So I wrote  Searching for Ever After , a story where Zack and Allison get married but not before all sorts of things happen to try and and sto

Glitches and Gratitude

Yesterday was a huge day for me. I had three holiday anthologies release into the world: Let's Get Naughty , Wanted: Mistletoe , and Christmas Wishes & New Year's Kisses . Let's Get Naughty , in particular,  was a huge labor of love for me because all of the authors in the group were hoping to make the USA Today Bestseller's List . Becoming a USA Today Bestseller is a serious deal for any author, and it requires an enormous number of preordered sales and at least a year of promotion and marketing by at least 40 authors.  When I went to sleep on Halloween night, our preorder numbers for all the anthologies were great and we thought that we might have a chance to "make the list". Then, when I woke up yesterday morning, we learned that one of the largest booksellers in the world ("The 'Zon") had experienced a glitch . A glitch that wiped out thousands of sales in under a minute, leaving us with unfilled orders. A glitch that could destroy our
