TGIF: The Promise of Paradise is FREE Through the Weekend!

Happy Friday, everyone! Through the weekend, The Promise of Paradise is FREE over at Amazon - grab yourself a copy if you don't already have one. It's been doing well on the Free Lists, too - as of last night, it was #47 on Contemporary Romance and #261 overall. Not bad, considering all the free Kindle books advertised every day :)

So please spread the word - and don't forget that I and some fellow romance authors will be reading, speaking, selling, and signing tomorrow, Saturday May 4th, from 2-4 pm at the Newburgh Free Library in Newburgh, NY (the Town Branch, which is located in the Newburgh Mall at 1401 Rte 300). Love to see you there!

Beacon of Love is Now Available!!

Well, I'm super-excited to announce that my BRAND NEW contemporary romance, Beacon of Love, is available a whole week early!! Here's the cover and blurb; if you want to read more, click the cover to go straight to Amazon and take a peek inside!

Welcome to Lindsey Point, Connecticut: suspicious of outsiders, loyal to tradition, and absolutely devoted to its local legends.

Enter Sophie Smithwaite, travel show host, in town to film an episode about Lindsey Point’s haunted lighthouse. But digging into the story of a tragic murder-suicide and love gone wrong reveals startling connections to Sophie’s own past. When a gorgeous local handyman fills in behind the camera, Sophie’s life gets complicated by more than just her family history.

Part-time paramedic, handyman, seasonal Santa-Lucas Oakes does it all--except get attached. He’s still reeling from the death of his best friend ten years ago and the more recent infidelity of his ex-fiancee. Yet despite Sophie’s big-city nosiness and her insistence on chasing long-dead ghosts, he’s drawn to her.

But mixing with an outsider means questioning people and traditions Lucas has always defended. When a series of attacks seem to be connected to Sophie’s investigation, both Sophie and Lucas must decide if they are willing to risk everything to uncover the town’s secrets...and their own.

Monday Mentionables: New Blog Posts, New Releases, Newburgh Library Here I Come!

Happy Monday, everyone! Just a few quick things to mention today: first off, last Monday the hero and heroine of The Promise of Paradise were chatting it up over at Read Your Writes Book Reviews. If you missed it, here's the link. (And P.S. authors - this is a fun way to promote your books that's a little bit different than the average blog post).

Also, my long-time writing friend Marianne Sciucco has just released her first novel, Blue Hydrangeas, about an elderly couple dealing with the wife's descent into Alzheimer's. Not a light subject, but certainly one worth giving attention to. You can check out the beautiful cover and read more about it right here.

And finally, just a reminder that I and some of my fellow romance authors will be reading, talking about romance, and selling & signing books this-coming Saturday, May 4th, from 2-4 pm at the Newburgh (Town Branch) Library in Newburgh, NY. This branch is located right inside the Newburgh Mall, which means you can do a little shopping before or after you visit us! (Just a heads-up for anyone on a tight schedule: I'm the last reader of the group, which means I'll be up around 2:45). Address: 1401 Route 300, Newburgh, NY 12550 Hope to see some local fans there!
