Make a difference while you read!

Have I told you about the new fundraising initiative I’m involved in this year?

I’ve contributed a BRAND NEW story called SAND DOLLAR COVE to SWEET TALK, a limited edition digital-only boxed set curated by Brenda Novak for the benefit of diabetes research. It includes nine other never-before-published novels and novellas and costs only $9.99 (that’s less than $1/story).

Diabetes Research Fundraiser

Who else is in the set? #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Sherryl Woods has contributed one of her popular Chesapeake Shores stories. Violet Duke, Melissa Foster, Steena Holmes, Gina L. Maxwell, Molly O’Keefe, Melody Anne, Rosalind James and Linda Lael Miller are all participating in this effort, too. And there’s a free bonus story from Brenda Novak. Pre-order this set now (wherever ebooks are sold) so that you receive it when it’s released on May 1st.

Once SWEET TALK goes on sale, it’ll only be available through June 30th. All proceeds will go to The Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami (they are doing some amazing cure-focused work). Our goal is to raise $300,000 and, with your help, we should be able to do it. Please note that Brenda has also curated a thriller box set as well as a “hot” romance box set, so check those out, too. You can find more information at http://brendanovakforthecure.org.

Love Small Town Series? Books 3 & 4 coming soon…

WELCOME TO ADAMS GROVE…where the tea is sweet, but trouble is brewing.

Thanks so much for supporting this series and being patient as I switched publishers which delayed the next installments a little….but we’re getting closer!! I love this small southern town, and I’m glad you’ve embraced it too.

As you know, we kicked off the Adams Grove series with these two books.

Sweet Tea and Secrets and Out of Focus, can be read in any order.  So if you’re behind…grab them now and catch up!

On July 9th – Wedding Cake and Big Mistakes will release. That picks up where Sweet Tea and Secrets left off. Jill and Garrett are back, and you’ll find out if Pearl was right about Carolanne’s love match or not.  Wedding Cake and Big Mistakes is available for pre-order on amazon.com now, and you’ll get amazon’s low price guarantee on your pre-order, too.  It will be available in trade paperback, audio and kindle digital.

I’m very excited that we’re working on the final cover for the fourth book in he series Pecan Pie and Deadly Lies. This is the “rest of the story” from Out of Focus. If you loved Cody Tuggle in Out of Focus, you’re going to be thrilled to meet up with him again in Pecan Pie and Deadly Lies. This one is set in Adams Grove and in Nashville, TN at Cody Tuggle’s estate – Hillcrest Farm. It was an awesome story to write and I had some extra-special help with the music industry and touring from the lead guitarist of the Bret Michaels Band, none other than Pete Evick! He spent hours and countless texts and emails helping me vet my ideas. It was so much fun to hear his stories and glean inspiration from his rock star life. To play with a legend like Bret Michaels you know Pete’s one heckuva talent — but more importantly, he’s one heckuva a nice man. I’m honored to have met him and include him in my circle of friends. Thanks, Pete!

DanPostVintageBluebirdBootsIn case you haven’t read Out of Focus yet, we’ve put the Kindle version on sale for just 99cents for a couple weeks. I hope you’ll grab it while it’s extra affordable and fall in love with Cody…and be ready for his story on September 24th (just happens to be my 19th wedding anniversary that day!!)

Pecan Pie and Deadly Lies is on sale for pre-order in paperback for a low 7.77 right now, so jump in on that deal while it’s going on. Pre-ordering on amazon is easy and they guarantee you’ll get that lowest price!!

So…here’s to lots more fun in Adams Grove over the next few months.   Stay tuned for the cover reveal of Book Four — coming soon~

Thanks for taking the ride with me.
