Author Takeover this Thursday!

April 25, 2021

Great news: This Thursday, April 29th, I’ve been invited to be the guest author on a fun FB page, called, Isn’t it Romantic Book Club.  These readers are really welcoming  and love posting about the romance novels they’re reading, so I’m excited to host.

This is a private group, meaning you have to join it in advance, but there are always author interviews, free books, games and prizes from visiting authors. If you enjoy engaging with other readers you’ll love this page. Hope to see you there!

Come visit me at a multi-author signing!

April 8, 2021

Hope you can join me Friday, April 23rd from 1-3pm. I’m one of many romance authors who will be signing at The Bazaar, 821 Apricot Ave in Sarasota, FL. This is part of a Writers Weekend Retreat, which I’m anxious to go on- it’s been over a year since I’ve seen my romance writing peeps! This event is free and I am selling and signing all my romantic suspense novels. Stop by and say hi!

Yikes, Sorry for the Short Notice…

December 9, 2020

Wow, this season is going so fast I can barely keep up with my online social engagements! I am thrilled to be a part of the FB reader group Isn’t It Romantic. Their rendition of 12 Days of Christmas is to have 12 authors each host a day and I was selected for this Friday, Dec 11th. The only thing is: I barely know any  of those readers. Yikes! Please do me a favor… join this reader group page in advance (like today!)and then stop by all day Friday when I post fun games and questions, and give out books and prizes. Thank you so much!

138 Author Secret Santa Party!

December 1, 2020

I’m one of 138 Secret Santa Authors offering books, gift cards, swag and more this Friday, Dec 4th. All you have to do is join Abbie Roads’s Dangerous Darlings Reader Group (as soon as possible) and then stop by anytime that day and comment on author posts to be eligible to win. (My prize is a $25 Amazon gift card, so look for my post!) Happy Holidays and see you there!


In Self Quarantine? Here’s a free gift.

March 7, 2020

Pass your laying low time with a free download of Tall, Dark and Damaged, a contemporary Gothic mystery about a black sheep son who returns home to make amends, but becomes entrenched in a bitter family rivalry and someone willing to kill to keep a tragic family secret buried.

If you enjoyed Victoria Holt novels about a brooding hero, a creepy mansion on a cliff, family skeletons and a heroine who’s in the wrong place at the wrong time, then this is right up your alley. Enjoy and stay healthy!

Congrats on winning!

Pamela B. and Amy M. won the latest Booksweeps contest, and a digital copy of “A Savage Trick” is headed your way! Congrats on winning and I hope this romantic suspense keeps you up all night, ladies.

For everyone else: enjoy this 3 chapter excerpt.

Another Massive Romantic Suspense giveaway!

January 6, 2020

If you haven’t snapped up a copy of A Savage Trick, here’s your chance! I’m starting off the New Year by participating in a 30-novel giveaway- one lucky winner receives digital copies of all these romantic suspense books, plus a brand new e-reader. Just follow the link and click the Bookbub Follow icon for these authors- each follow is another chance for you to win! There are 30 runners up too, because each author is giving away another digital copy. What is Bookbub and what does it mean to follow an author? Bookbub is a fabulous site that posts novels that are deeply discounted. Following these authors means BookBub will notify you on future sales and releases by them. It’s a win-win for both of us! Contest is Jan 6th – 22nd. Good luck!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

December 19, 2019

Dear Reader,

Thank you for helping me achieve my greatest dream- being an author. I am eternally grateful for your interest in my novels, your Amazon and BookBub reviews, your enthusiastic emails and the frequent invitations to speak at ladies luncheons and book clubs. May you enjoy the beauty of these upcoming holidays and please keep in touch in 2020!

BOLO (Be on the Lookout)

November 29, 2019
The model from my Tall, Dark and Damaged novel.

Now that gift giving season is here be on the lookout for authors hosting giveaways on Facebook. (BTW, have you liked my FB page yet?)

The newest FB rage is “group pages”, and I’ve been invited to two group holiday giveaways. Hundreds of authors will be at both, giving out digital or paperback novels to you lucky winners! To avoid the delay of a group administrator getting around to adding you to these groups I recommend joining them today:

On Fri, Dec 6th, I’m a Secret Santa at Abbie Roads’s Dangerously Dark Darlings.

On Sun, Dec 15th, Erika Kelly hosts a Stocking Stuffer Giveaway on the Do Not Disturb Book Club.

You can stop by anytime those days and keep scrolling down and commenting on each author’s festive question. That’s all there is to it! You’re now eligible for that author’s prize, which is generally announced the next day.

And don’t forget to support your small business owner (me!) this season.My novels make great presents if you know of a romantic suspense reader who loves to stay up all night…reading!
