May 13 to May 27, 2016 – The Girl Most Likely (e-version) will be on sale for .99 cents at The Wild Rose Press and at all major e-retailers. “Loved this book!...Who among us hasn't faced the prospect of attending a reunion, and panicking because there's just a month (or two weeks, or ten days) left in which to transform yourself into a thinner, younger, more successful version of you? The beauty of fiction--and this romance in particular--is that the heroine succeeds, and in the process realizes what really matters in life. [Hint: it's not age, looks, or money.]” Jill Blake, Goodreads Reviewer

August 2015: I’m having a sale! From August 21 to September 4, 2015, the ebook version of ONE MORE SECOND CHANCE will be on sale for .99 cents at The Wild Rose Press, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, All Romance Ebooks, Bookstrand and Kobo. OMSC will return to its regular price of $5.99 after the sale, so get it while it’s hot!

In other exciting news, I’m thrilled to announce that I received a 2015 Maple Leaf Award from Trans Canada Writers for Best Opening Hook for my humorous contemporary romance ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID. My novel also received Honorable Mentions for Favorite Novel and Favorite Heroine. I am happy beyond words!

2015 Maple Leaf Award

Here’s what the judges had to say about ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID:

“The characters of Dani and Zach grow so beautifully from beginning to the end. The whole story grows – from the lighter, catchy beginning, to passionate scenes, to heartbreak, to something deeply emotional wherein Zach, especially, comes through. The author dealt with the heroine’s personal choice to have surgery with sensitivity and understanding and good reason – and when the hero acts with compassion – that’s where I started to get tears. The writing is quite lovely… I was not expecting so much depth in the story, especially when the author graced us with such phrases as ‘Chantal entered the dining room on a wave of perfume”. Good work!”

Thanks Trans-Canada Writers!

I got some other good news this month. First and Again received 5 Stars in a review from Reader’s Favorite.
