Today's the Day!

It's finally here! Today is release day for THE BEST MAN'S PROPOSAL. And I've got a lot in store!

Aside from hanging on my own Facebook page, I've got a Thunderclap campaign running (feel free to throw your hat into that ring ;-). There's a Book Release tour through Book Partners in Crime, and I am doing an interview at Get Lost in a Story blog on Wednesday (with giveaways)!

Tonight, I will be at the online release party hosted by Book Nook Nuts. And there will be fun and more giveaways from 7 - 9 pm. So join the party!

Seriously - what are you waiting for. Hop over to one or all of these events and join the fun.

I hope to see you there.

Hurricane Prep is my Bitch!

So here comes Hurricane Irma! Living in the Sunshine State, we're used to tropical storms and hurricanes, but I have to say, Irma does seem to look like the mother of all storms!

I'm trying to get some work done today, but alas, my brain won't stop buzzing with tasks that need to be done in the next day or so. I've got all the usual suspects taken care of -- water, non-perishable food, cars filled with gas, generator ready, outside items inside, etc.

But having ridden out several big hurricanes a decade ago, and the resulting week-long power outage, I am a much smarter, savvier hurricane prepper. And chances are that we will lose power for a while.

Back then, we didn't have a generator, so we lost everything in the refrigerator. And after days of Florida heat and humidity, we ran out of clothes. Also, my house got dirty very fast due to people tracking in wet leaves and dirt. Without a vacuum cleaner, I was forced to sweep -- and sweep and sweep and sweep!

So this time I'm prepping smarter. Along with the usual safety checklist, I've added the 'Mom's OCD List' which includes: Doing all laundry in the house, vacuuming the entire house, and cooking food that either doesn't require heating, or that can be heated on the grill.

Aside from helping me to stay away from the constant doom-and-gloom weather reports, the tasks actually help me retain some sense of control in a situation that is mostly not in my control.

If you're in the storm's path, here's the non-OCD list: Stay safe!

The Countdown Begins

September is a crazy month for this author! Book releases are always busy times, but when you have two in one month -- look out.

First up is THE BEST MAN'S PROPOSAL, a fun, contemporary romance that takes up where THE SURROGATE HUSBAND left off.
Here's a little about the story:

Niki Hamilton had her hopes pinned on moving to Europe with her boyfriend. But then he dumped her. By text message. Just before her sister’s wedding. Left dateless in a flamingo-pink monstrosity of a bridesmaid dress, she decides to drown her sorrows in a glass of tall, dark, and handsome.
Firefighter Grant Powers has been burned by love, but when his best friend’s new sister-in-law falls into his arms—and stays there for one sexy night—he enjoys the experience a little too much. Then a rental snafu leaves Niki temporarily homeless. So, gentleman and masochist that he is, Grant offers his spare bedroom. Despite the smoldering sexual tension between them, starting anything would be playing with fire.
Now, they just have to survive living together for a few weeks…
Each book in the Hamilton Sisters series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Series Order:
Book #1 The Surrogate Husband
Book #2 The Best Man’s Proposal

To celebrate the release, I'll be doing several events (yes, there will be prizes). There'll be a Takeover at Book Nook Nuts on September 18. On September 20th, I'll be over at Get Lost in a Story for some more fun, excerpts and a giveaway.

Speaking of giveaways, my publisher is hosting one on Goodreads for this book! Enter to win today. 

The best part is that THE BEST MAN'S PROPOSAL is on sale for only $.99 for a limited time. But wait, there's more! I'll be blogging soon about my other September release, my next contribution to the Nocturne Falls Universe. Stay tuned for updates.
