It’s Almost Here!

It’s almost here! My contemporary romance novel, Love Built to Last, releases this Saturday, June 20th, in both e-book and print formats. And you still have one more day to sign up for the Goodreads giveaway if you haven’t already. Contest link HERE.

PRE-ORDER:  The novel is available for pre-order at Amazon in the e-book format, and also at Black Opal Books if you want to pre-order an autographed print copy—I signed the bookplates just last week!

ALSO — please remember to visit the Jaunty Quills blog this Saturday, 06/20, where I’m guest blogging by the invitation of none other than Kristan Higgins herself, my own favorite author. I’ll be talking about “synchronicity” and will give examples of how it works in our favor when we commit to our goals and work to make them happen. I hope you’ll make a note to check it out. I’m beyond excited to have the opportunity to blog over at the Jaunty Quills.

On Friday, 06/19, my fellow Black Opal Books author, Tierney James, is hosting a “speed dating for readers” on her blog where she spotlights several authors in short “tell about yourself” blurbs, and she’s invited me to contribute. And now I’m inviting you to check it out. You already know about me, but you’ll have the opportunity to meet other authors, too. Put it on your calendar and give it a click!

Thanks to everyone for all your encouragement and support. I appreciate all of you who take the time to visit here and read my musings. Some of you have been blogger pals for a number of years now, so you know this publishing goal of mine has been ongoing. I’m happy to be able to share my book launch with you, and I’ll sure appreciate you spreading the word.  🙂

See you Friday for Observations from the Tub!

    Only two more days! How exciting. You have my permission to engage in nonstop squealing and shrieking for the next 48 hours.

    Congratulations, and I can’t wait.

      Thanks, Sioux. I’ve managed to stay pretty level about it, but I’m planning to celebrate on Saturday for sure. 🙂

    I’m so excited for you. Sorry I haven’t posted before now. My computer hard drive failed yesterday morning so I’m dealing with my second reloading of data in 2 months. This time I bought a new notebook; I hope it lasts better than my old one.
