Spring Reader Fever is HERE!

The biggest event of the year at My Book Friends is happening all this week!

From May 12-18, come visit our group, get ready for shenanigans, and participate! There are prizes all week long, as well as one grand prize which is an autographed copy of a book by every single one of our founding authors. It’s our way of saying thank you to our readers and followers!

My prize is an Atlantic Canadian-themed pack, including a fun historical romance by Michelle Helliwell, a romance novella by Nicole Northwood, my own Promise at Refuge Point (my latest release), and a gorgeous fiction called Birth Road by Michelle Wambolt, inspired by the story of her grandmother. There’s also a reader tote and a bookmark for BR Meyers’s last book, A Dreadful Splendor. Meyers and Helliwell both have new books coming out this year, so this is the perfect time to discover a new author. 🙂

I hope you’ll join us! It’s all happening at from the 12th to 18th!

Ric’s worked hard to shed his high school image and become a success, and when Katie’s business proposal crosses his desk, he’s on board. What happened before is water under the bridge, right?

Get Ready to Rumble!

Fun news from The Writer’s Federation of Nova Scotia – and me!

On March 21, two teams of 6 Nova Scotia authors will compete to “chain-write” two short stories, each author writing up to 300 words before passing on the keyboard – including me, on the Plot Thickeners team!

Hosted at Propeller Brewing Co. (2015 Gottingen St., Halifax), the event will include both the public writing rumble (2:00pm to 6:30pm) and a reading of the competing stories (6:45pm). The event is free to attend, with in-person donations accepted.

Sponsorships of individual rumblers are accepted until the event concludes. This is a major fundraising event for the Writer’s Fed, with proceeds going to fund the Charles R Saunders Prize:  One prize ($1,000 cash and a $3,000-value 5-month literary mentorship through the Alistair MacLeod Mentorship Program) is awarded each year to an emerging writer with an in-progress work in speculative fiction or in nonfiction that shows promise and career-advancing merit. Priority is given to writers from marginalized communities, including but not limited to writers marginalized on the basis of ability, disability, ethnicity, gender, or sexuality.

And there are PERKS for sponsoring your favourite rumbler! Each person who sponsors me will be able to choose a book from my backlist (ebook only)!

And the Writer’s Federation also offers prizes which are cumulative:

  • $15 (a charitable tax receipt in the amount of your donation),
  • $25 (a digital copy of the two teams’ stories),
  • $50 (a copy of Omnibus: Five Years of Poetry in Motion)
  • $75 (a WFNS Notebook Set), and
  • $100 (a chance of having your name used in your sponsored team’s story).

I would be THRILLED to have your support! You can sponsor me here by choosing The Plot Thickeners for team and then my name from the Rumbler drop down! Thank you so much!

Limited time sale on The Cowboy’s Code

I’m gearing up for the release of the last Cadence Creek miniseries title, and I thought what better way to celebrate than to offer a Kindle Countdown deal?

From March 1-7, readers in the US and UK can get the first book in the Cadence Creek series for just 99 cents! THE COWBOY’S CODE features a sexy as sin rancher, a strong, stubborn social worker, and a cause close to both of their hearts…

He’ll do anything to protect the ones he loves…

Social worker Angela Beck has too much to do to wait around for a cowboy who’s all charm and little substance. Setting up her women’s shelter means everything to her. Trouble is, she needs the support of Sam Diamond and his family to get the project off the ground. And that means working together…

Sam has always loved a challenge, and the sharp-tongued Angela has him on his toes. As they work together to make the shelter a reality, he discovers the warm, vibrant woman beneath the efficient exterior. She might just be the kind of woman he’s been waiting for…

But trusting doesn’t come easily to Angela—she’s learned to count on herself and not lean on others, especially the sexy rancher with a protective streak. When Angela’s painful past resurfaces, Sam knows it’s time for him to step up and be the man she needs—and hopefully win her heart.
