A pretty neat surprise was waiting for me on Tuesday when I opened my Twitter feed...I'd been nominated for an award. A friend of mine, whom I met in an online writer's class this past fall, nominated me for this award. Sadie McCurry's blog, When Mom Grows Up, was awarded this fun badge of honor last week!
I am so excited to reveal to you the cover for Tracy Krimmer's new novel: Pieces of it All. Her latest novel is New Adult Contemporary Romance/Women’s Fiction and is scheduled for release in May. I love this cover designed by S.J. Pajonas. I feel the drama oozing out of the book - revealed on the character's faces - it makes me want to pick up a copy right now!
The blurb is equally titillating:
An alcoholic. A scarred man. A thief.
Yesterday I woke up and as I normally do went through my morning routine of Facebook, Twitter, Sales Report and To Love Twice's review page on Amazon. Imagine my surprise when I saw three reviews missing. At first I thought my most recent reviews had been deleted - reviews from people I didn't even know. I sent a scathing email to Amazon, posted my woes on Facebook and as people replied, offered their opinions and as I reviewed forum posts from others who've had this happen to them, I found a disturbing trend.
Today we're here with Ms. Erin McNamara of To Love Twice. She's going to tell us how she celebrates Galentine's Day with her best girl friends. Unfamiliar with Galentine's Day? Yes, so was I! Erin will explain it to us and maybe you can begin your own tradition with your best girl friends next year.
Hi, Erin! Thanks for joining us today. Do you have anything special planned for Valentine's Day with your husband, Luke?
We had a Q&A with Kate earlier this week and now we get to sit down with the blue-eyed hottie, Edward Kent from To Love Twice ! We've got some fun, flirty questions that we need answers to and Edward's our guy.
Celebrity you've been told you look like:
Ha! I hear this a lot: "You look just like that actor, Edward Kent. Do you know him? Is he your brother?"
Naughty food you like to indulge in:
I'm particularly fond of chocolate sauce and whipped cream...
What you wear to bed:
~~From Chapter 16~~
The weekend was flying by too quickly. All too soon, Georgie was at the door to pick up Mary for the night. They’d enjoyed a lazy breakfast before heading to the beach. Mary had instantly wrapped Edward around her finger, and had used it quite to her advantage. Kate was a little afraid of how easily that particular skill had come to her. It didn’t bode well for her teenage years, for sure.
I sat down over the weekend with one of my favorite characters from To Love Twice, Kate Walker Kent. Valentine's Day is coming up fast and I thought it would be neat to do a little Q & A with her to find out what she thinks is special and romantic!
1) What three qualities do you find most attractive in a partner?
Valentine's Day is fast approaching! In honor of this holiday which celebrates love and romance - the ChickLitChat group is putting together a fun promotion. All next week (Feb 10-14) we'll be posting some fun themed posts each day and we'll be using the hashtag #ChickLitLove to make it easy to find our posts.
Some of your favorite people from my debut novel, To Love Twice will be joining us and I hope you'll tune in to read what they have to say. Here's a bit of a teaser for what you can expect next week:
2014 is off to a good start. I finished the hard copy edits to B2D on Saturday evening and spent Sunday putting them into Scrivener. By Sunday night, the compile was ready - so off it went to the Beta Readers! I'm so excited to have my second novel a huge step closer to being in your hands!
