 Audible cover for Western Christmas Weddings

 

I have some big news!

I’ve just finished production of the Audible version of my Christmas release: Western Christmas Weddings.  These three Western winter weddings are sure to warm your heart and wait until you hear my narrator!  He has a wonderful, rich melodic voice just perfect for my stories.  I will be putting an audio excerpt up on my website soon but I could not wait to share the news!

These three Christmas novellas are FINALLY all together in one collection and I am so pleased to bring them to my readers.  The audio version is just over 9 hours and includes: His Brother’s Bride, The Sheriff’s Housekeeper Bride and my RITA nominated novella, Fallen Angel.

I’ve got an excerpt up on my books page.  Here’s the order link for Amazon.



Can You Believe This?

You won’t believe what happened!

First my big news…my Western Christmas novellas are finally all in one collection! I’m so thrilled to bring my readers these three favorite historical romances that were originally published in three different anthology collections, published by Harlequin Historicals.

WESTERN CHRISTMAS WEDDINGS

September 2017 – Pre-Order Now

Available in Kindle, Audible and paperback

For my 2017 Christmas collection…I have kept the titles of each story identical to avoid confusion.   The three novellas titles are:

  • His Brother’s Bride
  • The Sheriff’s Housekeeper Bride
  • Fallen Angel   ** This one was a RITA nominee!**

My original title was WESTERN CHRISTMAS BRIDES, but the minute I finished having the artwork done, Harlequin Historicals posted the title for this year’s Western Christmas anthology.  Can you guess?

It was Western Christmas Brides!!

Can you believe it?

I couldn’t.  Neither could my cover designer.  What a terrible coincidence. After some hand-wringing, I decided to make a change. Two Western historical Christmas anthology collections out the very same month with the very same title would be too confusing and who would believe I had not just come up with the same title, besides you? Add to this that Harlequin is my publisher and you see my problem. Titles cannot be copyrighted which is why you see many books with the same title–but generally not in the same month!  I hope I made the right decision.

I’m very proud of these Christmas stories and know you will enjoy reading them again or for the first time, so I hope you’ll pre-ordering this Christmas collection

APPEARANCE :  I’ll be joining a panel at the Danbury, CT library on October 26 from 1:00 to 4:00 PM.  This panel includes authors Mary Beth Bass, Erika Kelly, Bebbie Christiana, Renee Paley-Dain, Laura K. Curtis, Sharon Struth and yours truly.  Topic: How Scary is Publishing, Really?  We’ll be talking about our own journeys and giving some advice.  There will be light refreshments and an author signing.  Please stop by if you are in the area.  Register by calling 203  797-4527 or by clicking on EVENTS on the webpage www.danburylibrary.org.

GIVEAWAY:  I’m so thrilled whenever my cover gets featured by Harlequin.  Above is the gorgeous cover of WILD WEST CHRISTMAS, a anthology collection out now.  Harlequin is running a giveaway until October 19th including all the titles you see in the photo above.  If you’d like to enter, click this link.

WRITING:  My writing world is full of treats, instead of tricks. A box of my December release just arrived, so I’ll  soon be posting a GoodReads contest for THE SHIFTER’S CHOICE, my next paranormal romance.  Those of you who have enjoyed THE VAMPIRE’S WOLF (September) will be happy to hear that this is Johnny’s story.  He’s my US Marine werewolf who can’t change back to human form.  That posed a very interesting writing challenge for me.  How do two people fall in love when one of them isn’t actually human?  I really enjoyed writing this story and am thrilled to have my first Asian-American hero.

This month I’m celebrating Christmas early with my holiday novella in the anthology collection WILD WEST CHRISTMAS. RT Book Review gave this collection four stars and said about WILD WEST CHRISTMAS:

A triple play of heartwarming holiday stories from authors who know all about the reality of the Wild West as well as the beauty, strength, love and pure joy of the holiday season. These lovely stories will have readers sighing with contentment.

I’ve got two more Western historical romances in the works, so check back for release dates.

Enjoy the fall!
