Yes, two lucky Cupcakes will win an assortment of print and digital goodies from the authors.
So today: watch for the trivia questions and place your guess in each post’s comments. Tomorrow: come back to see the answers and learn who won. Let the Galentine’s Festivities commence!

Release Day for STAINED GLASS HEARTS!

Posted at Nov 30, 2020 4:16 am

Today is Release Day for STAINED GLASS HEARTS – Book 2 in the Big Sky Dreamers series. You can purchase STAINED GLASS HEARTS at Amazon.

Early reviews are coming in and I loved this line out of one of the 5 Star reviews.
“One joy filled day … I laughed and cried with all the characters … it made me glad to take a chance on this book.” Andrea

STAINED GLASS HEARTS – Books 2 in the BIG SKY DREAMERS Series is an Fake Relationship – Fixer-up to Fabulous book. (The books can read separately.)

Want to know a little bit about the book?

Both homes and hearts can be restored.

Mitch, a rigid and emotionally reserved attorney, has a passion for restoring old buildings. By himself. He doesn’t believe in intimacy or happily-ever-after. His parents’ marriage showed him it didn’t exist.

Tierney’s a gregarious and talented stained glass artist who needs to heal from her broken her engagement while completing the biggest commission of her life, a church. She needs a studio and finds the perfect space in a dilapidated mansion on the bluffs of the Mississippi.

Unfortunately, the mansion comes with strings. The Historical Society grant requires a couple to restore the house. Mitch and Tierney team up through Tierney’s Realtor cousin and convince the Society they are a loving couple and win the grant. But a year is a long time to keep up the act.

Especially when the line between acting and reality starts to fade.

INVEST IN ME Review

Posted at Sep 25, 2020 5:05 pm

As an author, I never know how a book is going to be received. I spend hours drafting and revising, to the point I can quote some of the 85,000 words. But this review made me smile and cry. Anytime I get a 5 star review, I do a happy dance. When it’s a new reader it’s even more special.

Thank you, Sue.

Posted at Sep 14, 2020 5:08 pm

Here’s the cover reveal of INVEST IN ME– Book 1 of the the BIG SKY DREAMERS series. I have to say I love it. It might be because in high school I loved the color orange. Or maybe because I did have an orange ski outfit. (Boy I wish I could fit into those pants right now!!)

The book releases on October 6th – but is up for pre-sale. You can get your copy here.  Amazon

New Series getting ready to launch! BOOK 1 — INVEST IN ME

Posted at Sep 2, 2020 3:30 pm

 

 

My next series is about to launch! The series name — Big Sky Dreamers. I can’t wait for you to meet this new cast of characters.

The cover for — Invest in Me — is stunning! (At least I think so.) I’ll be doing a reveal in the next few weeks. Here’s a little teaser.

He doesn’t remember. She can’t forget.

Sienna D’Amico was humiliated after taking the biggest risk of her life and sleeping with Tanner, a guy she barely knew. Then he ghosts her. No last name. No phone number.

When Tanner strolls into her University Managing Innovation and Change class, she’s stuck on a team that includes Tanner and two other guys. They must work together for the semester. Oh how she wishes she’d stuck with her dream of becoming a fashion designer, instead of playing it safe and getting her marketing degree.

But she doesn’t take risks. She won’t repeat her dad’s mistakes.

Tanner Morgan has an excuse for not remembering the gorgeous and smart Sienna, but she won’t listen and barely tolerates him. To escape the Midwest and conquer Wall Street he must take risks. He will not end up back on his parents’ ranch.

For years he’s not quite Sienna’s friend, but no longer an enemy. That’s only because of their mutual friends—the Big Sky Dreamers.

Tanner takes on Wall Street and achieves his dreams. Sienna cautiously explores her own goals. But something is missing in both their lives.

It just might be the impossible—each other?
