Great news! THE REBEL RANCHER is a finalist in the
GDRWA Bookseller's Best Awards!
The awards are given out at the RWA National Conference being held in Atlanta, Georgia this July. I'm not able to go, but my good friend Barbara Wallace is going to stand in for me at the reception.
Pop the champagne! I'm thrilled to announce that St. Martin's Press will be publishing THE HOUSE ON HIDEAWAY HILL, the first book in my Jewell Cove series. The series will continue with two more books - TREASURE ON LILAC LANE and FORTUNE AT FIDDLER'S ROCK... I'm simply over the moon and excited and still kind of pinching myself. Stay tuned for release dates and more information.
I'm making a move! Beginning with books in 2014, you'll find me as part of the American Romance line! It's going to be a great home for my cowboy stories and I'm thrilled to be working the the American team.
The transition is going to be a bit of a neat event - look for a new Cadence Creek duet beginning with a holiday story late this year. The heroine is Taylor Shepard, the sister of the hero in my current release, Little Cowgirl on his Doorstep. The second book, featuring their brother, Jack, will be my first book with American. Fun, right?
I'll keep you posted with release dates and more info on my home page and on my Bookshelf. The first book has just been accepted, and I'm in the middle of writing the second as we speak!
Welcome to the Chocolate Box!
On February 14th I'm part of launching a new website, The Chocolate Box.
There are ten authors who make up the box. We're writers of romantic fiction and we're friends. We're going to bring you news of our latest releases, post excerpts, hold contests and generally get up to shenanigans. Just like we do in real life. As Forrest Gump's mama would say, "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." Variety is a wonderful thing, isn't it? Romantic fiction is our chocolate, and at The Chocolate Box you'll find stories to tempt your discerning palate.
Join us on Valentine's Day for our launch - and the opportunity to win one of our fabulous prizes.
