I’ve been a bit quiet here on the blog, for a very good reason. Hubby and I were away at a writer’s conference and visiting friends in New York. In fact, we had planned to spend yesterday in Manhattan. Yeah, those plans changed pretty darn quickly and we high-tailed it out of there first thing Sunday morning, well in advance of Hurricane Sandy. My thoughts and best wishes are with everyone affected by Sandy–hopefully that demon storm will blow itself out soon!
I do have lots of good things planned for the blog over the next few months. In addition to my regular guests, I’ll be doing a weekly highlight of the fabulous authors of Rock*It Reads. Rock*It Reads is the author collective I’m part of–we’re a group of traditionally published authors also branching out into indie publishing. We’re committed to producing quality, exciting books and our authors include Pamela Clare, Bonnie Vanak, Monica Burns, and Mia Marlowe. Stay turned to learn more about this talented group of women.
I’m also still celebrating the recent release of my holiday-themed historical romance, His Mistletoe Bride. To carry on with that celebration well into the holiday season, I’ve banded together with three other historical romance authors. Along with the fabulous Victoria Alexander, Theresa Romain, and Grace Burrowes, I’ll be hosting an all-day festive gala, Romancing the Holidays, on the romance blog The Romance Dish. We’ll be giving away prizes every hour, from 9 am to 9 pm ET. All four of us will be blogging throughout the day, talking about our books, the holiday season, and chatting with our readers. We’ll also be giving away some spectacular prizes throughout the day, including a grand prize basket featuring an ereader. Zounds! You do not want to miss that. Dash on over to the Romancing the Holidays website for all the details and to sign up.
Sounds like crazy fun, doesn’t it? But what’s even cooler is that we’ve included a fundraising component to the event. We’ll be giving away baskets of books to a women’s shelter and a library, and we’re also encouraging our readers to make donations too. Be sure to check out the Romancing the Holidays website for details and to sign up to participate.
See you back here on the blog!
