Happy Book-iversary (to me)!


99centsMy first novel, Chocolate for Breakfast, was published on August 12, 2012 – nearly four years ago! (It was republished with a new cover in April 2013.) In those four years, I’ve written and published six novels, all of which have given me tremendous pride and a sense of accomplishment. I’m doing what I’ve always dreamed of doing, and that is sufficient. Well, pretty much.

New novels can trigger a sales flurry, but sales drop off after a time, even for beloved best-sellers.

So….for the coming week, every one of my six novels will be discounted to 99 cents for the e-book (Kindle version). I have no control over the print price, but if you come to the RI Authors Book Expo on December 3, 2016 http://www.riauthors.org/riexpo/ , I’ll have print copies available for a great price.

You can grab a three-book series, described by one reader as “writing (that) draws wonderful pictures of the characters and allows you to really ‘fall into’ the book ~ which is one of my favorite things about reading.” Or read about a group of classmates readying for their 25-year high school reunion and visiting old grievances. A novel about a young woman pursuing her dream of becoming a best-selling author, only to face a harsh reality check. And finally, a lighter story involving two friends who gamble on a dream of turning a rundown farm into a premier wedding venue. If you’ve already read these books, here’s a chance to give some gifts. In any event, I’m grateful – so very grateful – for all the positive feedback and encouragement I’ve received, from friends and strangers new friends, over the past four years.

A Jingle Valley Wedding – coming soon!


A Jingle Valley Wedding Kindle

I love this cover! So happy with it (and grateful to Heather McCoubrey, who worked diligently with me until we had something wonderful). So, I’m back to final proofreading and formatting the manuscript for digital and print, and my sixth novel will be released in November. Not sure of the date at this point, and I’ve committed to showcasing one Rhode Island author each day in November, so I won’t be blogging about the new book until December 1st, by which time it should be available online and in select independent bookstores. And, of course, I’ll have plenty of copies to sell and sign on Saturday, December 5th, at the Third Annual Rhode Island Book Expo, taking place from 11:00am to 5:00pm at the Lincoln Mall in Lincoln, RI.
