Dog Distractions and some news!

Hi, all!

Trying to get some writing done, which hasn't been easy when you're surrounded by such a cute distraction.

This is Sox.
He likes to hide under my writing chair.




Oh. And sometimes he likes to sit on my head.

Also, I'm really thrilled to announce that my publisher--Entangled Publishing--has licensed the Gaming Rights for BARGAINING WITH THE BOSS, ROMANCING HIS RIVAL, A LITTLE BIT CUPID, and CATCH HIM IF YOU CAN to Kun Lun Enterprises’ gaming app called “Moments: Choose Your Story”.  

Moments is an interactive, choose your own adventure app, where readers will read a script of your book, along with animations, graphics, and sound, and they can choose the direction they’d like your story to go in. The story itself will begin and end the way it does currently in your published book, however script writers will create new scenarios for your characters that readers can choose to read about. 

Moments currently has over two million active daily users!

How cool is that?

I've finally become a gamer. Sort of.

Would you play it?

#AuthorsWithHeart Reader GIVEWAY!

It's that time of year again! If you're a visitor to Melissa McClone's Facebook page over the past two months, you've probably seen her posts about the Fisher House Mother's Day tote bags she organizes each spring. 
Fisher House provides military families with a place to stay while a loved one is receiving medical treatment plus offer many other wonderful programs.

These Mother Day goodie bags started as a solo endeavor five years ago when she answered a request from care package group she belonged to. The second year authors and friends helped her by sponsoring thermal totes and donating books/swag. In 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and this year, authors and a publisher did all the sponsoring and donating. She was so touched by their generosity and call them #authorswithheart.

Earlier this month, prior to Mother's Day, forty-six Thirty-One Gifts thermal tote bags were filled and hand-delivered to the three Fisher Houses located in Western Washington (her hubby drove north to make two of the deliveries and accompanied her to the third.) Each tote bag included romance novels, a goodie bag filled with author swag (a variety of items from bookmarks, pens, measuring spoon, luggage tag, lip gloss, recipe cards, and so much more!), a goodie bag filled with pampering items (mini shower gel or hand lotion set, shower puffy, tissue, head band, footie socks, mini note pad), a goodie bag of candy, and a small stuffed animal! Many contained an extra something that authors donated such as toiletries, planners, puzzle books, mini-journals, etc.

A BINGE Worthy Series Sale!


A Binge Worthy Series Sale!


Hi, Favorite Readers!
Entangled Publishing, LLC is having a Binge Worthy Series Sale!! Over 40 books are on sale!! (Including MINE) Limited time only so hurry and check them all out!!

All three of my books in the "ANYONE BUT YOU" series is on sale.

#1 FiancĂ© by Fate (Jack and Sabrina's story) : 
$0.99

Amazon #1 Best Seller in Romance Series

Their fake relationship is a twist of fate.

Sabrina Cassidy believes in fate. So when her fiancé breaks off their engagement, she's convinced they'll get back together eventually. But fate was not on her side when it brought Jack Brenner into her life--and work. Frustrating, gorgeous, and cocky, Jack has an offer that Sabrina can't refuse. Not if it means getting the life she's always imagined.
Despite being one of the town's most eligible bachelors, Jack has a reputation that's working against him. He has to convince his father--and his company's board--that he's ready to settle down if he wants a promotion. But convincing Sabrina to be his fake girlfriend turns out to be the easiest part. What he didn't count on was their intense attraction and how easily their lie would escalate. Sabrina's still hung up on her ex, and Jack will never settle down. But fate has other ideas...

#2 Wedding Date for Hire (Maddie and Trent's story):$1.99
A sweet category romance from Entangled's Bliss imprint...
Hottie for hire...
Maddie McCarthy is single, between jobs, and (oh, the shame) lives with her mother. To make matters worse, she's the maid of honor for her sister's wedding, and desperately needs a date. Then she sees her salvation-Match Made Easy, a service for women in Maddie's exact position. If she can't find a boyfriend, she'll do the next best thing...
Hire one.
Trent Montgomery isn't actually part of Match Made Easy. He's just doing a favor for his cousin, but one look at the blonde who hired him, and he's totally hooked.
Now Maddie thinks that the attraction sizzling between them is just "part of the package." And Trent is running out of time to prove to her that her date-for-hire might just be her happily-ever-after...

#3 Wrong Brother, Right Match (Kennedy and Matt's story): $1.99
Matchmaking guru Kennedy Pepperdine’s life is perfect. Perfect job. Perfect friends. Perfect boyfriend. Except...when she gets trapped in an elevator with a handsome stranger, she accidentally confesses a secret: maybe her perfect boyfriend, Justin, isn’t so perfect for her after all. But a matchmaker should be able to successfully match herself, right? Thankfully, she’ll never see the handsome stranger again. Until she heads home with Justin for the holidays and learns that the sexy stranger is none other than Justin’s older brother, Matt.
Matt Ellis is trying to be on his best behavior for his mother—it is Christmas, after all. But when he recognizes the beautiful woman from the elevator—the one he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about for months—his best behavior is being held by a thread. Matt’s always sacrificed for his family, and nothing is more important than their happiness, but the more time he spends around Kennedy, the more he wonders if her supposed "right match" might just be the wrong brother.
Each book in the Anyone But You series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Grab me while I'm cheap! Prices go back up next week!

Enjoy!

Welcome to WEEK 8 of the 10 Weeks of Romance Giveaways!

 Ten of some of the best authors in the inspirational and sweet romance genres are hosting a 10 Weeks of Romance Giveaway to celebrate their new Resort to Romance series! 

Here’s the series premise: It’s Matchmaking Week at an all-inclusive resort on a private island in the Bahamas. Each guest has been expertly paired and is here to enjoy one full week with their match. While there’s no money-back guarantee on the paid trip, the participants are guaranteed to find love! 

Each week beginning Tuesday, February 19th through the week of Tuesday, May 7th, a new book by a new author in the series will release, and you have the chance to win one, some, or the grand prize which includes all ten novellas plus a $150 Amazon gift card


Here’s how it works: Register at the rafflecopter below. 
We’ll randomly select a winner each Tuesday. 
And the great thing about this giveaway is the books build with every author’s new release! 
That means your entries roll over each week all the way up the grand prize.

This week’s prize is: A Match for Mr. Write by ME! 
Magazine editor Gemma Carmichael has been secretly in love with her co-worker Blade for 5 years and when he suddenly breaks off his engagement, Gemma decides this is her chance to woo her man. He signs up for a matchmaking getaway and she decides to do it too, positive they're a match. But to her surprise, she's matched with Sawyer Bennett, a brooding romance author who only came on the island to write and who doesn't even believe in love. (Obviously the Sterling sisters have no idea what they're doing!)

Romance author, Sawyer Bennett, did not sign up for this. He thought his travel agent cousin was sending him on a nice, normal vacation in the Bahamas, not to bad reality TV recreation. The only romance he's interested in is the one between his characters. After all, family history has shown him that true love is just fiction, which is why he's so good at writing it. But now, he's stuck in a romance book situation, with contracts that can't be broken and matched to the pretty but kooky redhead, Gemma. (Obviously, the Sterling sisters have no idea what they're doing!)

However, the magazine Gemma works for would provide great publicity for his next release, so he agrees to help her win her true love in exchange for her putting his book on the reviewer's upcoming list. Seems like an easy enough way to pass the week. Sawyer still doubts the existence of true love but by the end of the week, he can’t help but wonder if he could finally have found the write woman for him after all.

Be sure to stop by Julie Jarnagin's blog next Tuesday to see what book is being added to the giveaway: a Rafflecopter giveaway
