Be Happy. Read Romance.

I've been dreaming up some super-duper reader swag...this is but one of my awesome new pretties.

Yeah. Yeah. I know. I've got these crazy amazing vinyl stickers for swag. Click on the image above or here to enter my latest giveaway.

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know about this, but I had a little fun and unexpected health stuff crop up in February. On Valentine's Eve, as a matter of fact. No chocolate and cheesecake for me. <insert heartbreak emoji>

And while it didn't result in a meet cute with a super dreamy attending physician in the ER-- although my surgeon was totally romance novel hero material--it did end up with me putting the brakes on, big time.

To that end, Puck Buddy, my second offering to the Mistletoe Key series, is being slightly delayed. I want to make sure Mia has the best story ever. Because I adore her. (You might remember her as the best BFF a gal could ever have in Blue Christmas.)

If you'd like to apply to be part of my review team for Puck Buddy, a zany romantic comedy set in the world of Mistletoe Key (where it’s perpetually Christmas at the beach) make sure you sign up using this link.

WANNA MEET ME IRL?

If you're in the Boston Area (or want to take a little trip out east) the weekend of April 27th, head on over to the New England Chapter of the Romance Writers of America's Thank Goodness It's For Literacy book signing.

The event will be held on Friday, April 27th, from 6pm-8pm in the Grand Ballroom at the Boston Marriott in Burlington, MA. The book signing is free of charge and open to the public.

It features a cash bar and an incredible group of 58 authors who will be signing books for purchase; a portion of the proceeds benefits literacy charities. Each reader will also receive tickets to enter a raffle for book/gift baskets assembled by some of our authors. The drawing will take place at 8:30pm.

I'd love to meet you there!

See a list of all signing authors here.

 

Can't make it to Beantown? I'll also be in Denver this July for the RWA Readers for Literacy event AND I'm super excited to let you know I'll be at a super special event called Buns and Roses in October in the DFW area.

I've been attending the event as a reader for years, and I'm delighted to have an author table surrounded by historical romance greats like Lorraine Heath, Cathy Maxwell, Sherry Thomas, and Elizabeth Hoyt and contemporary giants like Lauren Dane, Teri Wilson, and Nicole Helm. Tickets will go on sale in June, so make sure you sign up for the RALC's newsletter for a reminder.

About LOVE IS HERE TO STAY

Romance writer Callie Emerson can’t resist a good story or a good secret, so when she finds herself more interested in unlocking a surly rancher’s secrets than in making her deadline, she knows she’s in big trouble. Win Carter is too busy resuscitating his family’s legacy to invest time in a relationship, especially one with his sister’s spoiled society friend. And though she has her head in the clouds while his feet are rooted firmly in the ground, maybe one week in Wyoming is all it will take to start writing their own happily ever after.
