Here’s the link to Amazon. Just in case.
News update! My debut Love Inspired Suspense book, Dangerous Deception, is coming out November 1st.
Here is the cover!
I am amazed at all the little details the Harlequin Art Department was able to include in this cover. Does it look mysterious? Are you intrigued? I hope so!
I love libraries. I have to confess, having one of my books in a library makes it feel like a real book in a way that having a book up on Amazon never does. So when I heard about the Multnomah County’s Library Writer’s Project, I was excited.
This program looks for independently published books written by authors in the Portland area, and since The English Lieutenant’s Lady is written about early Oregon history, it seemed like a good fit. The library agreed!
I’m plugging away with my latest manuscript, the one that hit me over the head on November 1st. I’m in the middle of smoothing out the rough draft, and it feels like I’m not making any progress at all. But I’ve noticed that progress is sneaky. One day I’ll look up and notice that I’ve actually gotten through the worst of it.
This is not that day, alas. But one day soon, hopefully, I’ll be through this patch.
In July, I took a trip from Oregon to Denver by train. I’ve posted an account of my trip up on the Craftie Ladies of Romance site. Come check it out!
The Hillsboro Public Library is hosting a local author’s fair. I’m going to be signing copies of His Forgotten Fiancée and The English Lieutenant’s Lady, as well as hosting a chat on Writing Romance. If you’re in the neighborhood, please do stop by! There are going to be a lot of other authors there as well, and a variety of presentations.
I’ll be at the main library on Saturday, September 22nd. The romance chat is at 4 p.m., but the book signing will be going on all day.
The library has a full list of the day’s activities.
Where: Hillsboro Public Library, 2850 NE Brookwood Pkwy, Hillsboro, Oregon 97124
When: Saturday, September 22nd
Why: Because it’ll be fun!
I’m participating in a Wild West Giveaway on Instafreebie.
I was hesitant to join at first. I thought Instafreebie only allowed for books that were free everywhere. The English Lieutenant’s Lady is free to people in Kindle Unlimited. But apparently that counts. The catch is that I can only put up the first 10% of the book in the giveaway, to comply with Amazon’s terms of service.
If you like Western novels, there are over a dozen free on this giveaway. Go check it out!
Um… no, not the NY Times Bestseller’s list. Better than that. (Sorta.)
The English Lieutenant’s Lady is listed on …
(dramatic pause for suspense)
The Most Anticipated Christian Fiction 2018
It’s on a list on goodreads. All right, it’s at the bottom of the list, but that’s not the point. It’s there. People can see it. There are so many books out there, anything that helps a story become more visible to readers is awesome.
If you’re on goodreads, you could go vote for The English Lieutenant’s Lady.
No guilt. No pressure. Just saying.
Won’t you vote?
Okay, maybe a little guilt. Look at that sweet kitten’s face. Would you disappoint him?
