Terri’s Silver Anniversary of her FIRST BOOK!

Long ago, in a land far far away…. oh wait! It wasn’t far away at all – it was in NYC – when my first book, A LOVE THROUGH TIME, was published by Berkley/Jove in their then- Time Passages line of time travel romances. The year was 1998 and I was thrilled to see my story out in the world.

25 years later – I’ve written 53 more books and have more in the planning. From Berkley/Jove, I moved to Harlequin’s Historical line and to Kensington Books and PenguinRandomHouse’s NAL line and Oliver Heber Books and Dragonblade Publishing – and I’m still with Harlequin Historicals, too! In addition to working with publishers, I republished my older books as well as self-publishing a number of shorter projects with other authors. And there are still more stories to come!

So, I think that I should be celebrating both the Silver/25th Anniversary and the stories I’ve written. And you, my readers who make this all possible should join in!!

I’ve got signed books, 2024 Scottish calendars (weekly giveaways!), Terri’s branded tchotchkes, Scottish goodies and even a Hebridean Baker’s cookbook! And more. And all you have to do is enter on my CONTEST page. If you’re already a newsletter subscriber, there’s a special giveaway for you that will be in the upcoming issue early next week – don’t miss your special drawing!

Go to my website – and click on the banner on the opening page:

Hie thee hence to enter!

The weekly giveaways are opening next week and will include all entries received that week and continue until November 30 when the giveaway winners will be chosen. There will be one (1) grand prize awarded to a website/in-person entrant, one (1) grand prize awarded to a newsletter subscriber entered via email and one Scottish calendar given out weekly during the celebration to one person from among all the entrants that week. Although an entrant may only win one of the 2 grand prizes, winners of the weekly calendars are still eligible to win a grand prize.

I hope you’ll join me in celebrating this milestone!


Chocolate Town Book Festival – SATURDAY!!

Booklovers descend on Chocolate Town (aka Hershey PA) this weekend for the annual Book Festival and I’ll be part of it! Held at the Hershey Public Library, dozens of authors on fiction/non-fiction, genres and more will be there to meet readers, sell and sign their books and more.

I’ll be signing my newest releases along with my backlist of fantasy, paranormal, and good old plain historical romances from 11am until 3pm. I’m also beginning the 25 day countdown to my 25th anniversary of my first book – A LOVE THROUGH TIME – being published.

Please come on over or stop in and say hello! For all the info – addresses, etc. take a look at this event page!
