February 2012 - Awaken the Highland Warrior wins Single Titles Reviewers’ Choice Award.
November 17 2011 – attended Girls’ Night Out with Nora Roberts at Turn the Page Bookstore. Dana, my CP, and I met several of Dana’s blogger friends for dinner before the event. The Waterworld Mermaids are a fun bunch of gals. We had lots of laughs even before Girls’ Night Out began. At the event, I signed a few books, chatted with some author friends, perused the bookshelves, and admired handmade arts and crafts offered for sale. Last, but not least, I got a nice massage for my tired hands. We writers need to take care of our hands. They are our livelihood.
November 2011 – sold a new paranormal relic hunter series to Amazon publishing and within 15 minutes got Hollywood interest.
November 2011 – Embrace the Highland Warrior is out and already getting great reviews! Readers and reviewers are telling me that while Awaken was great, Embrace is even better.
September 2011 – Awaken the Highland Warrior hit the USA Today bestseller list and the NY Times bestseller extended list. Yay!
August 2011 – Awaken is getting great reviews. I’m so thrilled.
May 2011 – went to Martha’s Vineyard for an author/agent panel. My husband went with me, and since we’d never had a honeymoon, this was it. Better late than never! The writers and my agent stayed in mystery writer Cynthia Riggs’ history filled family home, circa 1750. Hubby and I toured the island, relaxed, and had a blast hanging out with writers from all genres. There was lots of laughter and food, and as we were leaving, I played heroine and saved a crow that had gotten trapped in a trash can at the airport. The highlight of the trip!
April 2011 – My first booksigning at Turn the Page Bookstore in Boonsboro, Maryland, where I signed with Nora Roberts, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Kristan Higgins, and several more of my favorite authors.
It was wonderful meeting the readers, and I was thrilled that Awaken the Highland Warrior sold out! Dana Rodgers, my critique partner, and I spent the previous night at Inn Boonsboro, Nora’s wonderful Inn. If you get a chance to go, do it. Absolutely gorgeous and the service is impeccable.
