60th Book Celebration and Giveaway Party!

Hi everyone! This is just a quick note to tell you my exciting news!

Highland Spring will be released in a little over 2 weeks, and it will be my 60th book! It has been a lot of hard work but a fun and exciting journey getting here. I decided I wanted all of you to help me celebrate, so I’ve planned a facebook party extravaganza that will last from May 13th – May 18th. Click HERE to see the full 6 day agenda.

This is the party of all parties, and will include over two dozen guest authors of multiple genres. Some of the authors will be coming to you LIVE, and you’ll be able to interact and ask them questions. Others will be posting games and giveaways the traditional way. Either way, they all have some surprises in store for you. So be sure to stop by to visit with USA Today and Bestselling authors such as Kathryn Le Veque, Suzan Tisdale, Vonda Sinclair, Kathleen Ball and many more.

As a special treat, I have actors and cover models, Michael Foster and Sean Hampton coming to the party on LIVE video to talk to you about what it’s like to be a cover model. Period Images photographer VJ Dunraven will also be taking you behind the scenes of a cover model shoot.

There will be free books, and prizes each day. I’ll be giving away a terrific gift basket on Mother’s Day with everything you need to pamper yourself, so be sure to stop by. And if you like to cook, my husband and I will be cooking up one of the recipes found in the stories of my Tarnished Saints Series on Mother’s Day – and you are invited to our kitchen to be a part of the experience.

I also have a contest you can enter starting now through the rafflecopter on the bottom of this page. I’m giving away a Kindle Fire, a $50 amazon gift card, and one lucky winner will win their choice of every book from one of my series.

Some more exciting news is that my small town contemporary book, Igniting Andrew is a nominee for the Rone Award from InD’tale magazine. To get to the finals, I’ll need all of your votes, but the voting doesn’t take place until the week of May 15th. (I’ll remind you.)

But for now, if you haven’t already preordered your copy of Highland Spring, it is only 99 cents for a limited time. And be sure to read the Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series beforehand. Reckless Highlander is only 99 cents, but the price is changing very soon.

AUDIOBOOK CONTEST: From now until May 14th, I am having a contest where 3 lucky people will win an audiobook of Ruthless Knight. Go HERE to enter.

New on the horizon is a multi-author boxed set called Romantic Legends by USA Today and bestselling authors. You’ll find my book, A Viking’s Promise in this set. It is the only place the book is available for now. 99 cents, KU reads free.

So go ahead and start entering my 60th book giveaway, and remember to stop by the contest from May 13 – May 18th!

Igniting Andrew: Release Day

I am happy to tell you that Igniting Andrew – Book 11 of my Tarnished Saints Series is now available for purchase. (KU reads free.) Andrew Taylor is a firefighter who has brought fire protection to the little rural town of Sweet Water in the form of their first firehouse. Christina Goldstone is a widow with a baby – that Andrew has delivered. One of them is looking to settle down while the other still has wild oats to sow. Get your copy today. (Paperback coming soon.)Andrewbrand500

And now available for pre-order is the last book of this series – Taming Thad – Book 12. Thad Taylor is the youngest of the Taylor Twelve, and has his hands full when he makes a promise to a dying man and ends up marrying the man’s daughter – who he didn’t know was blind.

Twenty years ago, the idea of the Tarnished Saints Series was born. I had just started writing romance at the time and thought to myself – wouldn’t it be a great idea to have a series about twelve brothers – sons of a preacher – named after the 12 apostles – but they’re trouble with a capital T. Hence, the tagline was formed: The Taylor Twelve. Sons of a preacher but far from saints, these men are nothing but trouble!

Thadbrand500

I must say, through the years I started to wonder what I’d been thinking to take on such a HUGE task. Doubting Thomas was written, but sat in the closet until 3 years ago when I started self-publishing. Luring Levi followed shortly afterwards, and Judging Judas had a long wait for its release. But now, three years later, all the boys’ stories have been told. (This was a very daunting project and I can’t say I ever plan on writing a series this long again!)

Thank you all for your patience through the years as I finished the series. This series is very close to my heart since it is based on some of my own life experiences. The setting is fictional – but real to me, as it is where I grew up visiting my grandparents on the lake. I see this series as books of memories of instances in my own life – added to new ones to make it a humorous, dramatic, and exciting series. These Taylor boys will make you laugh and make you cry, and before you know it, you’ll start believing that they are real. I feel like I know each and every one of them personally, and I wonder if you can guess which one or two are my favorites.

Thanks once again, and enjoy the troublesome Taylor brothers. Just click on their name and it’ll take you to their book on amazon. The books are available as ebooks or paperbacks: Prequel, Thomas, Levi, Judas, Zeb, Simon, James, Pete, Philip, John, Nate, Andrew and Thad! (These are my book sons, and I feel like a proud mother, having given life to each of them.)

Start your journey with the Taylor men with the Tarnished Saints’ Christmas – the series prequel that I’m offering free through Sat. May 14th.

Please join me at my facebook release party for Andrew on Wed. May 11th, from 5-9 pm Central time. I have a slew of guest authors and there will be games, giveaways and prizes, so you won’t want to miss it.
