Special Announcement: COVER REVEAL for MISSING YOU (a Roxy Summers Mystery #3)

Omigosh!

I can’t believe it!

It’s here!

IT’S HERE!

 

Missing You (a Roxy Summers Mystery #3) has a brand new cover, and it’s AWESOME! Ever since I saw the preview a few days ago, I’ve been completely in love with it and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. I’ve been (excitedly and impatiently) waiting to get the OK from my publisher to share the cover with you, and TODAY IS THE DAY! You are the first ones to see it! My Precious Readers who’ve been with me since before I was published. I haven’t even posted to my Facebook Group yet, but shh! don’t tell them, okay? They’ll get their own special announcement later today.

 

As what has now become commonplace for all of my books (completely accidentally), Missing You is releasing in the complete opposite season the characters are experiencing in the story. While it’s ramping up for Summer in the Real World, in the fictional world it’s winter; but, I digress.

 

The cover… Oh, the cover!

Cover - MY

 

I love it. I love it so much. Yes, that is a moose on the cover. The cold wintry scene is leaving me with chills. Chills! (Have you paid attention to the hints I’ve been dropping these last few months?)

 

All I can say is, welcome to my fictional town of Ptarmigan, Alaska! I don’t know if you are aware, but I’ve been to Alaska and would LOVE to go back, anytime. Living in the Pacific Northwest, I already have the appropriate winter gear, and was toasty warm and dry.

 

Granted, it was a 7-day cruise, but ever since that trip, my husband, Pilot and I have dreamed of going back. Perhaps one day driving there from our Washington home and staying. Although I tend to be more of a desert lizard, loving that dry heat weather, Pilot is happiest when temps are no higher than 65 degrees. I don’t get it, and he doesn’t get me when it comes to weather. One thing we both agree on: we hate hot humid weather.

 

In other news, I’ve heard from my editor, and it’s going to be ANY DAY NOW when I finally receive edits back. I’ll make any necessary corrections, and then SEND IT TO THE MINI-MASSES for a Beta Reader phase.

Final announcement, a reminder that today is the LAST DAY to participate in Night Owl Romance’s Spring Fling Scavenger Hunt! It’s an opportunity to win free books from 35+ authors, myself included! I’ve been on the comment board and responded directly to readers with their comments and questions. You should drop a line over there too! I’d love to hear from you.

Join me at the 3rd Annual Passport to Romance 2018, GSRWA Reader Appreciation Event – I’ll see you there!

3rd Annual Passport to Romance Reader Appreciation Event
The FREE Book-tail Party of the Year! ~ Hosted by GSRWA

Westin Bellevue, 600 Bellevue Way NE, Bellevue, WA, 98004
Saturday, October 14th, 2017 from 6pm-8pm
(but bring cash if you want to win a raffle basket!)

Hello, Precious Readers!

This Saturday is the 3rd Annual Passport to Romance Reader Appreciation Event, hosted by GSRWA! I love this event. It’s an opportunity to take home a BAG full of books! I’ve gone every single year, and I keep coming back for more. Why?

I LOVE THIS EVENT!

I always go home with an armful of books, freebies, reconnect with author friends, and meet amazing local authors. For those who enjoy atmosphere, there will be book cover models you can meet in person and have a photo taken with them! They’re super nice, always professional, and easy to talk with, or you can stand around and drool at them from the wall. That happens. Do what feels right to you.

As always, there are tons of raffle baskets to win! (Bring cash!) There are some previews of amazing goodies. I saw some Kindles, Echo Dots, and of course, books, books, and more books to win! Partial proceeds from all raffle basket ticket sales benefit the Domestic Abuse Women’s Network in the Seattle area. Help support other women in need, and help us raise money for DAWN.

Sadly, due to budgetary constraints, I will not be able to be one of the hosts and cannot give out free books this year, but I WILL be in attendance as a visiting guest, just like you! (Will you find me? It’ll be a fun Where’s Waldo?-type situation.) If you happen to spot me, feel free to come on up and say hello! I’d love to see your smiling faces! If you happen to bring your print copy of Capture Me or Crush On You, I would be most happy to autograph the book for you! (I always have a trusty pen on hand!) Haven’t read my books? Check out my Roxy Summers Mystery Series books, Capture Me and Crush On You, HERE to read a synopsis! I’d love to introduce you to Roxy’s world!

Here is a previous post about this event to give you an idea of what it’s like:

Here’s a list of a few of the authors you’ll meet on Saturday:


Hope to see you there! I’ll be there with my trusty glasses on.

looking for a good book / Waterfront Book Festival in Everett, Washington

“A book is a gift you can open again and again.”
– Garrison Keillor

Hello Precious Readers!

That’s right! 2 Posts in 1 week! Who knew it was possible? I’m writing this special blog post in honor of the Evergreen branch of the Romance Writers of America‘s Waterfront Book Festival (RWA), held yesterday in Everett, Washington!

Pilot, my friend Caring*, and I headed up to the Everett Marina in The Cranberry** yesterday afternoon. Spending a good 45 minutes first at The Everett Farmers Market browsing the various vendors vending their volume vestige.

Yeah! How do you like that alliteration? Vindicated! (Mwahaha!)

Although we didn’t purchase anything here, it was fun to check out the stands.

Admittedly, there were a few items I wanted to buy, but I had limited funds put aside specifically for the book festival.

After perusing, we entered Lombardi’s, an Everett Italian restaurant, right there on the marina, and then just outside the restaurant, down the line of the group of vendors. Lombardi’s was kind enough to host the authors in case of inclement weather. After a dry summer, we ended up with torrential rain and blustery winds causing several power outages in Western Washington State. Even now, in the afternoon, I’m still reading posts on Facebook about people still without power on Day 3. I got to see some of my favorite local authors again (Wendy Delaney and Lori Lyn) from the Greater Seattle RWA’s annual Emerald City Writer’s Conference back in October 2014. I also got to meet some of my favorite authors for the first time, and got to meet authors I hadn’t heard of yet for the first time! I also ended up with a huge haul of freebies.

Which is never bad. Am I right?

I’m lamenting the lack of photos, but I was waaay too nervous to think of taking more pictures.

I purchased a couple of books for my friend Caring and I, and then our little group skedaddled out of there.

Should you get the opportunity to go to any book fairs, sales, etc. I always recommend going. Especially if the authors themselves are in attendance! Even though I was nervous, it never ceases to amaze me how warm and inviting the authors are! They’re people, just like you and me, other than the fact they’ve been published – sometimes several times over! I’m always grateful when they deal with a bundle of nerves like myself and still treat me normally.

It’s greatly appreciated to be treated normally when one clearly is not.

Here are some photos from the event!

Word of warning, her books are not for the faint of heart! They’re high-octane romance.

If you’re looking for more book events, I know of one that will be hosted during this year’s Emerald City Writer’s Conference for the public. It’s not a book sale. They’re GIVING AWAY FREE BOOKS!

Again, GIVING AWAY FREE BOOKS!

Here’s a link to their event:
