We’re half-way through my 20Days20Books Reader Appreciation Celebration. I hope you’re feelin’ the love! Each day you have a chance to win a download of Plaid to the Bone from my publisher Kensington, a chance to meet one of my generous writer friends, and finally a chance at one of my 19 backlist books. And don’t forget the Grand Prize: A Kindle Paperwhite!
Each day I share a bit more from my newest Scottish romance. I introduced you to Callum Farquhar earlier (and if you want to find out what nefarious activity got his ear nailed to the stocks, check out the first chapter.) Here’s another excerpt from his journal:
“Love isna about sonnets and nosegays. It doesna reside in the giving and receiving of a ring. It happens when one person sees another person’s soul clear through, warts and all, and then, by some mercy of God, doesna turn away.”
—From the journal of Callum Farquhar,
unlucky in love, romantic at heart, and still waiting for my own private miracle.
One of the joys of writing has been getting to know other authors. I was invited to join the Sisterhood of the Jaunty Quills this year and met my blog guest, Katherine Garbera, at the RWA Convention in Atlanta at the JQ’s breakfast (where a number of blackmail worthy pictures of me were taken, but we’ll not dwell on that!)
Katherine and I have a good deal in common. We both love to travel and have lived in many different states. But Katherine is one up on me. A Florida girl at heart, she and her family nevertheless make their home in the Midlands of the UK right now. What a wonderful adventure (and as you know I’d rather have an adventure than a new sofa!)
Another thing we have in common is a love of romance and a guaranteed HEA. Here’s a bit about Kathleen’s newest release: His Instant Heir
It was only one night…
Cari Chandler can’t forget Declan Montrose. Their baby is a living reminder. The baby she hasn’t told him about. The no-commitment billionaire—and her family’s sworn enemy—walked out of her life the morning after. But now he’s back…with a vengeance!
Taking over her company is the last step to victory in their families’ long feud. But Cari’s more than collateral damage to Dec. He wants—needs—to seduce her again and again. Until he finds out she’s hidden something more precious than her company. His son. And Dec intends to claim him…no matter the cost.
Katherine has graciously offered a copy to a random commenter. You might win your choice of print or ebook, but why trust to luck? Claim your copy now!
How to Please a Pirate
And to add to the fun, a reader reported to me that this story was on display at the Museum of London Docklands next to the Johnny Depp memorabilia. Most appropriate since my hero in How to Please a Pirate was sentenced to hang in that same London neighborhood.
This book is available separately or as part of the How To series book bundle (currently offered at a ridiculously low 99 cents!)
Today the goodie bag is bulging with a download of Plaid to the Bone, His Instant Heir and How to Please a Pirate! And of course, each comment enters you for the Grand Prize: a Kindle Paperwhite!
Here’s our question: Katherine and I have both lived in lots of places. How about you? Have you moved around or have you stayed put? What are the advantages/disadvantages to either?
