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).
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.

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,
