Just a quick shout-out to all my GOODREADS friends. It’s been so exciting to see Barbecue and Bad News land on your bookshelves for a future read. This is Sheriff Scott Calvin’s love story, but there’s a mystery unfolding and some matchmaking too.

Be one of the first to get Barbecue and Bad News in your hands. And if you’re a Kindle Prime or Kindle Unlimited subscriber—you can get it that way too.

Well, 2015 is just around the corner and if you’re like me you added a stack of new books to your TO BE READ pile over the holidays. I hope you’re treating yourself to some good relaxing reading time because you are going to want to be caught up so you can take advantage of these new books coming out too.
JANUARY My friend Tracy March has another Suddenly Smitten novel coming out on Jan 19th. I’m so excited about this one. I had the honor of writing the cover blurb for her first book in that series called, The Practice Proposal. Love that book and I’ve never forgotten the hero, Cole, either! Her new book is just as fun. If you love watching The Bachelor…you are going to adore this book. Pre-order The Marriage Match.
FEBRUARY Then..speaking of “match” – February 10th is the big day that Barbecue and Bad News comes out. Hopefully you’ve already pre-ordered that one. You’ve followed Sheriff Scott Calvin through five Adams Grove novels. We thought he might get the girl after Out of Focus, but that wasn’t meant to be. Finally, Scott’s getting his chance. Don’t miss out on this story.
MAY SWEET TALK is a collection of new stories from ten bestselling authors being sponsored by Brenda Novak to raise money in this box set $9.99 with all proceeds from May and June going to Diabetes Research. My contribution is a love story set on the banks of North Carolina called Sand Dollar Cove. It’s a brand new community and I hope you’ll fall in love with it. I’m so proud to be a part of this effort with the amazing list of authors and I hope you’ll get your copy ordered. It’s such an important cause, and if we all do a little we can do a lot!
MAY Also in May, on 5/19, LIFE AFTER PERFECT will hit the shelves. New folks in a new place – Boot Creek, North Carolina. A tender story of second chances.
And there will be another Granny Series book from Kelsey Browning and I this year too. Stay tuned for the release date of IN HIGH COTTON. Also, check my website for events across the country in 2015.
Thanks so much for your support. You enable me to live this dream..and I appreciate you every day for it!
Hugs and happy reading,

I LOVE JULY!
I admit it. Well, it is my birthday month. Not until the 29th, but at my age I get to claim the whole month, right?
I’m working like crazy to get ready for a fun day on my facebook page on July 4th. You see, Tonya Kappes and I are going to be having a virtual party and I hope I see lots of y’all there. Some of our writer friends will be sharing their books too. You could win one..or two..or even something else like an Amazon gift card. Who couldn’t spend one of those!
This July is especially busy. SWEET TEA AND SECRETS is on sale for a special $1.99 kindle price, so if you know anyone who hasn’t read it…pass that along. They’ll get that low price all month and then they can jump right into WEDDING CAKE AND BIG MISTAKES. That one comes out on July 9th and I’m so excited for all of us to see if Pearl’s matchmaking streak will hold to the undefeated with Carolanne and Connor!
I’ll be in Atlanta the 16th-20th for the big RWA Conference. I hope any of y’all local to Atlanta will come out for the big literacy signing. All the proceeds go to the great cause AND you get to meet your favorite authors. It’s a crazy, hectic, amazing fun night and it’s free to get in.
Meanwhile, the KINDLE WORLDS:: Pretty Little Liars shorts that I wrote are staying on the top of the lists.
SECRET TALENTS is a HOT NEW RELEASE
THe PAth to RelAxAtion and The LiArs’ LAir are both on the TOP RATED list.
A fun quickie read for just 99cents. I hope you’ll enjoy them and leave a review if you do. You know how I love reviews…and it is my birthday this month, after all!
Hope you all have an amazing July. I’m treating the family to fresh strawberry shortcake tonight to start the celebrations.
Hugs and happy reading~
