Catherine! The winner of the $10.00 Starbucks Gift Card was randomly selected. Thank you to ALL of those that dropped by and left comments. They truly mean so much to me because it makes me feel like I’m really connecting with someone, and not just writing to the air (was that sentence long enough and terribly constructed?!). It’s the readers that inspire us as writers. I’ve enjoyed every second of this event, and look forward to joining in at the next party at Christmas! Thank you TRS for planning this party and being such gracious hosts. YOU ARE THE BEST! Remember that if you enjoyed reading the excerpts here at TRS, you may purchase ebooks or paperbacks of One Sizzling Summer and Memphis Heat at www.amazon.com and www.barnesandnoble.com . My new book, Love Beyond the Curve will be released Dec. 4th at www.bookstrand.com ,and after a month, will also be available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Happy Thanksgiving to all! You’ve certainly made my Thanksgiving a happy and grateful one!
The last few days have been thrilling for me here at the TRS Thanksgiving Party! I have met new friends and discovered new authors that I know I will enjoy. Thanks to everyone that dropped by my page to see what I’ve been up to in the writing world. Special thanks to The Romance Studio for the invitation to join in the celebration. I hope to be invited to the next party, and if so, I hope to run into you again. I hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and a blessed year.
With many thanks,
I want to thank TRS for hosting another awesome gathering for us to come out and play, just in time for Thanksgiving. I will be done for the day after this, so I want to sincerely thank all the commentors who stopped by to check out my work.

November is a time when we begin to really stop and think of all we have to be thankful for in our lives. This year has been extra special because I finally became a PUBLISHED author. My first book, One Sizzling Summer, was published in February by Siren Publishing. September brought the release of my second book, Memphis Heat, also by Siren Publishing. Now, on December 4th, my third book, Love Beyond the Curve ,will be released by BookStrand Publishing. I am thankful to SirenBookStrand Publishing for accepting these manuscripts, and believing in my work enough to publish them. I am also thankful to The Romance Studio for this invitation to come share my books with you. Here they are:
I will be sharing posts about each of these books, including blurbs and excerpts, so you can get a sample of the way I tell a love story. Leave a comment to be eligible for an Amazon Gift Card. The winner will be randomly selected, and I will get with them as to where to email the prize! So…. come on in and let’s have a Book Party!!!
Good morning, happy weekend, and for all those American readers out there, hope you’re gearing up for a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving holiday next week! I’m thrilled to be hanging out here with so many other authors for The Romance Studio’s Thanksgiving Party, and over the next few days I’m going to share with you some thoughts, some excerpts, some tips, and some things for which I am thankful this year.
So…to start, I am thankful to live in a place where so many people are willing to help others in times of need. I live about an hour north of NYC, which means many of my friends and neighbors in New York and New Jersey suffered great loss during the recent Hurricane Sandy. What I have seen in the aftermath is amazing. People reaching out to others in any and every way they know how. I have friends who had up to 10 people staying with them for days - in a house without power. Facebook posts encouraging donations reached far and wide, from animal shelters needing generators to radio stations packing trucks with coats and blankets to friends waiting in line at gas stations for hours to fill up cans for others who couldn’t get there. And for a few days before the bitter presidential election, it didn’t make one bit of difference which candidate you supported, because there were bigger things to think about.
I am so thankful for my loved ones being spared, my home remaining intact, and for being able to witness (and be part of) an immense rescue effort. I hope that, if you were in the path of Sandy, you too are safe and recovering and rebuilding with the help of others.
Excerpts and more thankful thoughts to follow in the days to come……….hope you’ll pop in to join me and say hello!
