A word from our sponsor

My latest sweet historical romance, THE COUNTERFEIT BRIDE, is out at libraries and available on line. If your library doesn't have it, please request that they purchase it.

I got my first PW book review: They called it "a breezy romance with a strong and capable heroine..."

Last night I found this review from ALL ABOUT ROMANCE: "Often very funny and always charming, the story of tough-as-nails Lillian and her handsome psuedo-husband was and enjoyable quick read." (Pat's complaint was the book wasn't long enough. That always makes me smile. Avalon Books has a set limit of pages and I pushed that limit with this book. In fact this book was originally twice as long but could not find a home, so I edited it down to Avalon's guidelines.)

There are authors who would say I should have kept the length and put it up as an e-book. But I have two e-books and they are not selling. They sell best as POD (Print on Demand paperback.) For me it makes more sense to give my readers books they can hold in their hands. At least for now. If you want to see more ebooks from me, then I need to see a rise in sales on the two book from The Wild Rose Press. Otherwise, I'm going to stick with print books.

I hope you enjoy this fine read~ I had a lot of fun writing it. Cheers~

How cool you sold to Avalon!

You need to come visit with me Over Coffee.

I've read and loved your other books and I can't see this one being any different. I'm glad to see positive reviews for your writing. Yay!

Congrats on Counterfeit Bride!!!

Since I got my iPad, I guess I've moved to the digital age, because when I went onto Amazon to buy the ebook version of CB only to realize it didn't offer it in eBook, I was startled to realize this would be my first print purchse this year. The 50 or so other books I've gotten have all been ebooks. How strange.

Thanks, Marilyn!

Hi Sia, this is a fun book. I think you'll like it. My next book is our in 2013ish- is a Berkeley Prime Crime- very exciting.

Hi Linda- you know most of my readers buy "real" books- my ebooks just aren't selling. Crazy. Avalon says they will go E sometime in the near future...
