In five days my very first Heartwarming novel is releasing!! You can click on the book cover to the left to pre-order now!
I'm doing a lot of celebrating with this book. It's not only my first Heartwarming novel, it' my 70th title published with Harlequin/MIRA. I can hardly believe that many books have come out of me. I feel as though there are still as many in here as there have always been. Hundreds of them.
And yet...seventy books. I look at the list I was recently sent and I can remember every book. The jumbled feelings. The lives and crises my people and I have been through together. My books are my friends. I've never been one to have a lot of friends. I'm that nerdy book worm who spends a lot of time alone. And somehow, overnight it seems, I have 70 friends sitting here with me. And through them, a lot of 'friends' among the rest of you, too. Friends who share these people with me. They introduce us - these books. Connect us. I am very blessed. And very thankful.
Once Upon a Friendship is about friends. Seriously. The book that follows in October, Once Upon A Marriage, is too. There are three friends, two girls and a guy. They've been besties for more than a decade. They met in college and the two women have roomed together ever since. Through law school. The opening of a coffee shop. And the purchase of an old historic apartment building so that the elderly residents who've lived there all their lives won't be put out on the street. The guy, Liam, he's up there in the picture, well...he's...a bit of a conundrum. And Gabrielle and Marie adore him. Equally. You might see where this could be going. It kind of does and kind of doesn't. And the old folks...the friends rescue one from another's bathroom. Help when a married man of sixty years forgets his wife's birthday. And find themselves with more than fifty rabid body guards when evil comes knocking - literally - at their door.
As part of the 70th book Heartwarming Release celebration, I'm going on tour, having a party, giving away VISA gift cards, t-shirts, books, and a basket filled with summer fun and a lot more free books. The fun starts on July 5th and goes until the 16th. I hope you'll join in! You can follow the details here:
