Valentine's Rewind Blog Hop

I don't know about other writers, but I find that, after I type THE END a la Joan Wilder (The Joan Wilder), I don't really think about my characters much. While they've "spoken" to me--and through me--during the drafting and revision process, once I've told their story the best way I know how, it's over for me. I don't revisit them or think about them much. 

I must confess: sometimes, I have to go back and re-read my notes to remember, six months later, what their names are. (SORRY IF THAT KILLS THE MAGIC FOR YOU, BELOVED READERS.)

Which is to say, all of this made the prospect of agreeing to this Valentine's Rewind hop...a challenge. Until I remembered Kenna Madison, the much-maligned vapid heiress to a vast pencil fortune in ONE WEEK IN HAWAII. What made it even more challenging? The story came to me in first person. (That...never happens.)

There are so many good books to grab in this promo. And since I'll be spending a lot of time in waiting rooms this summer (don't worry: everything is okay!), I need to load up my iPad Mini with lots of sexy, summer fun.

If you can remember all the way back to our origin story, the three authors and I met on twitter, so it's only fitting that following us on Twitter is part of this giveaway. But I'm pretty excited about YOUR COMMENTS below, telling me where you'd like to vacation this summer.
