Ways to Help An Author – and prizes for doing it!


  Anytime you connect with an author it helps! When you connect with an author via a vendor or other service, it helps a lot! This month I’m in a group promo to highlight two places where you can connect with authors — and then you will receive info automatically about new releases – Amazon and Bookbub. Amazon – well, you all know about Amazon, offers readers a chance to FOLLOW your favorite authors. BookBub – a curated subscription service that points readers to great (Free-99¢-$1.99) digital deals on all vendors – also offers the readers the chance to hear about their favorite authors.

So, I’ve teamed up with BookSweeps to participate in a month-long promo that I hope will get more of you to follow me…and lots of authors. . . on Amazon and Bookbub! The prizes: these are the ones from my section – the more you play, the more you enter….

Grand Prize Winner: Selected from all participants, receives 1 copy of each book, plus a Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet.

Runner Up #3: Selected from the participants in the Medieval, Scottish, and Victorian Romance section of the promotion, receives 1 copy of each Medieval, Scottish, and Victorian Romance book.

Bookstore Gift Cards (10): One winner will be selected from each of the 10 contest sections to receive a $25 gift card to the bookstore of their choice.  Thus, there will be 1 gift card winner selected from each of the following areas:

Medieval, Scottish, & Victorian Romance (Amazon Follower Promo)

Medieval, Scottish, & Victorian Romance (BookBub Follower Promo)

To begin, head over and take a look — this promo will continue until June 5 – Medieval, Scottish, & Victorian:

Thanks so much!

Brandywine Brides are here!!

It is such a good feeling when a book is released and it gets in the hands of readers. This project is near-and-dear to me since it involves a group of my friends who decided to create a project together. It’s been happening over a couple of years and now it’s here! Seven stories about seven generations of one family that begins with a Scottish traitor transported to America and those who come after him….all the way from 1721 to present day! NYT Bestselling author Mariah Stewart is our lead author and the others include Cara Marsi, Kate Welsh, Gwendolyn Schuler, Martha Schroeder and debut author Georgia Dickson… and me!

I hope you’ll give us a try! It’s 99¢ for the first week…

Brandywine Brides – and the Writers Who Lunch

A couple of years ago, after decades of knowing each other, a small group of writer friends began to gather for lunch once a month. We would talk about family and life but then the topics would turn inevitably to writing and stories, the market and contracts, and other publishing topics. We were a mixed group – all published, most by traditional publishers, some of us trying our hand at indie publishing, too. Finally, someone said — hey, we’re all writers, we should write something together!

And that was the beginning our our series – The Blackwood Legacy – and our first anthology – Brandywine Brides!

We gathered for planning sessions. We climbed into cars and did road trips all over Chester County PA, looking at stone houses, horse farms and the Brandywine River as it ran down through historic Chadds Ford. It took months before the family’s history and the idea of the first connected collection took shape. One writer had to bow out and we recruited another to take her place. Finally, seven stories about seven generations of the Blackwood family took shape – from the patriarch Finlan Blackwood in 1721 down to the current owner and namesake Finn Blackwood.

Brandywine Brides is now available for pre-order and will debut on April 25 — we hope you’ll give us and the Blackwood Family a try…. it’s at a special price now – 99¢ – and available at most retailers

One Family ~ Seven Generations ~ A Legacy of Love




Claiming His Highland Bride – coming in June!

Isn’t it beautiful? I just got the cover of my upcoming Harlequin Historical – Claiming His Highland Bride – and I love it! Don’t you?

This is Alan Cameron’s story – readers have been watching grow up since STOLEN BY THE HIGHLANDER when his skills at finding people led him into the middle of things. Then, in KIDNAPPED BY THE HIGHLAND ROGUE, he honorably offered to marry the disgraced heroine when he thought she needed his help. Now, he’s got his own heroine and all the problems that go along with that!  And his story is a transition in my “A Highland Feuding” series – from the Mackintosh side of the feud to the Cameron side….which should be fun!

If you’re interested in pre-ordering, linksfor most major retailers and in most formats are on the book page . I hope you’ll give Alan and Sorcha a try.  And let me know what you think of the cover? Harlequin has given us our name fonts back – I just love the crisp look of my name in all CAPS and they’ve gone back to the medallion (rather than covering the top 25% of the cover in a purple swath)… I like that, too!



The Big Finale…

Well, it’s been fun but it’s almost over! This week brings my website launch month-long celebration to a close. We’ve had winners – lots of winners! – and there’s still time for one more.

Upon a Misty Skye – preorder now!


I was so excited to be invited to write a story for a limited-time-only Celtic ghost/haunted castle collection of novellas last fall and even more excited when that collection – ONCE UPON A HAUNTED CASTLE – hit the USA TODAY bestseller list! Now, I’m releasing my novella UPON A MISTY SKYE by itself — and it’s available now for preorder!

The story — On Scotland’s Isle of Skye, Alexander MacDonald and Isabel MacLeod were not supposed to meet or fall in love or marry. Now that they have, their parents mean to separate them, by any means possible. But the ghost of Duntulm Castle has other plans for the forbidden lovers.

Here are some links to the preorder pages —
