New Book!

*To check out my post for the Chick Lit Blog Hop, head over here.*

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone is waking up safe and sound this morning. The images from Oklahoma are so heartbreaking. My prayers are with everyone who is waking up to so much destruction today. I encourage everyone to do what they can to help. You can visit the Red Cross here to see how you can help. I found that the easiest, fastest way to contribute was to simply text the word REDCROSS to 90999.

It feels quite insignificant on a day like this, but the news in my little corner of the universe is that Lovestruck in London is finally here. You can check it out for your kindle here or for your nook here. I’m still waiting on the iTunes link but I’ll let you know as soon as it’s live over there.

I’m closing the contest from last week and will be announcing the winner later this afternoon. Good luck to everyone who entered!

I’m doing one last contest to celebrate the release. I’ll be giving another $25 Amazon gift card to a random member of my mailing list. All you have to do to be eligible to win is sign up here for the mailing list. I only send out newsletters to alert members of new books, sales, and occasional contests. I promise I won’t clog up your inbox;)

Don’t forget you can also win ebooks and maybe even a brand new kindle by participating in the Chick Lit Author Blog Hop. Check out the details here.

Have a good day, everyone. Stay safe and give lots of hugs today!

How is it April??

I’ve been a very bad blogger in 2013! Sorry that I fell off the face of the Earth, guys. Things have been nuts but I’m finally settling down. Yay!

One of the biggest reasons I’ve been MIA is because I’ve been working very hard on a new book. I’m having trouble choosing a title and I really need to get on that, because the book should be ready to publish in May. So what can I tell you about this book if I can’t give you a title? Let’s see…It’s set in London, it features a cute British boy (who just so happens to be a movie star), lots of references to Jane Austen novels, and a love story that I am particularly fond of. It’s very strange to write a book not set in Michigan but I loved writing about London. I hope you guys like it as much as I do. I promise to do better about updating in the next few weeks.

In other news, I am working to get all of my books available for nook, kobo, and iTunes. I’m also getting audiobook versions made, which I’m very excited about! It’s not a difficult process, but it is tedious, which makes it hard to do when I’m so focused on writing and editing. Again, I’ll update the site when the books are ready everywhere.

The other thing I’m working on is a prequel to the Three Girls series. I’m VERY excited about this! I think you guys know how much I love those girls, and how much I miss them when I’m not writing about them. The story I’m working on will be a novella (meaning it’s shorter than a novel) and will take place prior to Three Girls and a Baby. The best news about this prequel is that I will be offering it for free! I’m hoping to  have this out sometime in the late Spring.

I think that’s all the book news I have for now! Besides for writing I’ve been staying busy watching The Walking Dead, Dr. Who, and Community. I’m kind of obsessed with Community, actually. Joel McHale is so very dreamy and I’m more than a little bit in love with Danny Pudi and Donald Glover. Sigh. If you don’t watch this show I highly recommend giving it a shot (before NBC, in all their infinite wisdom, cancels it).

Oh, I also moved! I bought a new house with a great back yard for Lucy. It is also very near a park with walking trails and a little nature center. Lucy LOVES it! But she now gets even more annoyed when I spend all day writing. She just wants to be in the park all the time!

Lucy says, “Hey, stop writing and take me to the park!”

I hope you are all doing well and that spring is arriving where you are. It was a whopping 35 degrees today. Woohoo :/

Talk to you soon!

New Book!

The final book of the Love Story series is here and I’m so happy!

An (Almost) Perfect Love Story, the third and final book of my new series, is available to purchase on Amazon.com right here.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000032_00030]

Ashley Phillips always believed she would live the perfect love story.

And why wouldn’t she? After all, Ashley’s been witness to her own parents’ perfect marriage, having been sweethearts ever since they met in high school. With their fairytale example to guide her, Ashley was sure that she would eventually find her very own prince charming. When she falls in love with one of her best friends, Chris, Ashley is sure she’s on her way to happy-ever-after.

When Chris proposes, Ashley is more confident than ever that her love story will be a perfect one. With the help of her mother and her best friends, Emily and Ryan, Ashley is determined to plan the dream wedding that she has always imagined.

But a devastating revelation will soon prove that the Phillips family is not as perfect as Ashley has always thought. When the cracks begin to show, Ashley will be faced with betrayal so strong it will cause her to doubt everything she’s always believed about marriage, love, and family. Now Ashley must decide if it’s time to give up the dream—or if true love is really worth fighting for after all.

 

First of all, didn’t Scarlett do a lovely job on the cover? It expresses Ashley very well, I think. Unlike Emily and Brooke, Ashley is all about the girly stuff. And as you can see from the items on the cover, there’s a wedding in this book. I think we all know how much I love writing about weddings!

I’m very excited to get this book out there, and to complete the Love Story series. It was a challenging set of books for me to write. I had so much fun writing about the Three Girls and spent a lot of time with Ginny, Jen, and Annie. Branching out to write about new people was hard at first. Of course, by the time I was finished I found I loved Emily, Brooke, and Ashley just as much.

I hope you do too!

To celebrate the new release, I have some great sales going for the first two books in the series. One of my favorite kindle websites, the Kindle Fire Department, did a very nice feature and explained the special deals you can take advantage of today. Check them out here, and please bookmark them for future use. They help authors connect with a lot of readers and help readers find a lot of sales!

I hope everyone enjoys this new release. If you have the chance to check it out, I’d love to know what you think. And keep an eye out for the Three Girls–they have a tendency of popping up in this new series;)

 

Awesomesauce

Something really cool happened today. I went to add up my Amazon sales, like I do every day (usually more than once. Man, it’s so nice that amazon gives us these reports daily, but it also makes for some obsessive behavior on my part), and noticed that I just passed a pretty big milestone. I’ve sold more than 30,000 copies of the books in the Three Girls series in 2012.

I can’t tell you how happy–and shocked– this makes me. I never in a million years thought I would see numbers like that. And I really didn’t think I would see those numbers in just two months. It’s madness!

For everyone who has read one of my books, recommended them, reviewed them, tweeted about them, or shared them with a friend, can I just say THANK YOU. You rock more than I can possibly say. You have helped my wildest dreams to actually come true. How many people get to say that?

I really can’t thank you guys enough. What I can do is try to make my next book as good as I possibly can. So I’m gonna go work on that for a while. But please know I am truly thankful to everyone who has given my books a chance.

My readers are awesome!
