Redemption Red Comes Out in a Month!

A little less, actually… The almost-done version is in the hands of beta readers and early reviewers and I’m beginning to get feedback, which is so fun (because the feedback has been good!) I can’t wait to send this one out into the world…I think it’s a great mix of wine, food, romance and atmosphere. And I have a feeling that those who look for book boyfriends will enjoy Tyson Dawes. I loved writing him… now I just need to stop comparing real live men to him!

If you are a book blogger or reviewer and would like to be involved in the post-launch tour (October 21-26), you can sign up HERE… There are going to be some great giveaways along the way!

Now I’m diving into edits for the first book in the Girlfriends of Gotham series… The first book, Men and Martinis, is slated to publish in early December!

Add A Rare Vintage on Goodreads!

I’ve got lots of things lined up for the release of A Rare Vintage at the end of this month… I’ve got an amazing cover, but am planning a big “Ta Da!” reveal event for the 20th, so you’ll have to wait! (so will I. I hate waiting. hate it.) The book launches on the 31st of May… but you can get a teaser and add it to your shelves on Goodreads NOW! No waiting! Yay!

Also – thanks!

Secrets and Procrastinations

I have a secret. I’ve been writing a book.

I know, that isn’t really a secret of astounding proportions, is it? I’m standing here, after all, calling myself a writer. So it should make sense that I’m writing.

But I’ve started and stopped a few things while other things have been bandied about at the publisher (bandied about means edited heavily and evidently bandying involves a lot of waiting — something I’d heard about traditional publishing but had never been lucky enough to experience first hand until pretty recently. I’m still happy to be being bandied, don’t get me wrong…) And so it is a bit of a secret that I’ve started and finished something while all that other stuff was going on.

It’s a romance. Set in wine country. (In this case, Paso Robles, CA.) It’s the first of a series… and I’m going to self publish it, most likely around the end of May/first of June. The whole idea of it makes me super happy, actually…I just think its a fun book and that the series will be super fun to write. I like romance. I like wine. Heck, I’ll probably even have someone eat some chocolate or slurp down an oyster just to make it really perfect.

The title is: A Rare Vintage. The cover is in the works…

So that’s my secret. Soon, I’ll develop another part of my site — or even a new site! — for the Wine Country Romance series. But right now I’m going to go watch Pretty Little Liars because my brain doesn’t really work past 8pm.

Just wanted to share. Because I’m pretty crappy at keeping secrets.
