Wow – I’m really excited to be here at Leah’s blog today. Leah and I have “known” each other for quite a while from various places around the web, but it’s really been twitter where we talk the most. I love that she’s Canadian. I LOVE that she writes fabulous, sexy stories for Samhain. And it was awesome to finally meet her in person in New York in June at the RWA National Conference.
So when I thought about what I was going to post here today, I figured I’d talk a bit about my new Samhain novella which releases TOMORROW. And I AM going to do that. But first I’m going to share something equally as exciting – for me and hopefully for you too. Because I’m guessing if you’re at ALL like me the idea of free books is super exciting.
From October 1-14, you can download my EPIC award finalist SOLD TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER for kindle for FREE. Hot cover, right? And I had a blast writing this book. If you’re not familiar with my writing, this is a great chance to give it a try. If you’ve read my Harlequin Romances (I also have a new one, HOW A COWBOY STOLE HER HEART, out this month) you can expect the same sort of heartwarming, emotional read but add a bit of heat. My Samhain titles tend to be a bit more on the sexy side!
So go ahead and give it a shot – you’ve got nothing to lose, right? You can get it until the 14th at this amazon link.
And so that brings me to my current release – a novella this time, the first in a series, and a fun series it is too as I am a sucker for a hero in uniform. I’ve written a few soldiers before but this time I’ve headed into First Responder land and the first novella, OFF THE CLOCK, features a paramedic named Gabe Brenner. What I really love about writing this series is that I am setting it in one of my favourite locations in the world – the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia. It’s a gorgeous area with lot of farmland, wineries, history, and of course, the ocean. So many of my favourite things in one place! I used to visit it every summer as a kid, never thinking that one day I’d live so close to it – we’re only about an hour away now! So in the novella when Gabe and Carly have gelato in the gazebo at the fromagerie – I’ve done that, several times. When Carly goes to Gabe’s house with a view of the river, well, that’s the sort of place I can imagine living, too.
OFF THE CLOCK releases tomorrow – here’s the link to Samhain’s page for it and you can also read an excerpt there, and here’s the link for the amazon page so you can download it to your kindle or kindle app.
Plus to celebrate the launch, I’ll come back tomorrow and pick a winner from the comments to win a free copy of OFF THE CLOCK. So you’ll get a free sure thing with SOLD TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER and a chance for another freebie too!
Meanwhile – go ahead and ask me anything! I’ll be popping in throughout the day to chat! And a huge thanks to Leah for hosting me today!
