king and queens - terry tylerI had to share this giveaway.

I love Shaz’s blog and website: Jera Jamboree

Shaz was amazing on my book tour, which I did a few months back. When I saw that Terry Tyler was working with Shaz to promote her giveaway of Kings and Queens, I just had to share it with you.

Although, I’ve never met either of these women (we speak over email) I can honestly say both have been an inspiration to me and have helped me along my journey as an author. I interviewed Terry a few months back, which you can see here, she was so lovely. So inspirational and her advice for other indie authors is second-to-none.

So have a look at how you can win an e-copy of Terry Tyler’s, Kings and Queens – I’ll be entering 🙂

I gladly welcome international bestseller, Barbara Berger, to my blog on this lovely Monday morning. I was kindly asked by Barbara to review her new novel ‘The Adventures of Pebble Beach’ – see my review on Friday 🙂 But read here how her excellent novel combines chick-lit with self-help!

The Adventures of Pebble Beach – by Barbara Berger

Published by Roundfire Books / Release date: February 28, 2014

Attracted to the wrong men and don’t understand why? Afraid of being alone, getting older and losing your sex appeal? A little sex crazed (or a lot)? And still dreaming of a man who can save you from your life?

CHICK LIT MEETS SELF-HELP IN THIS SAUCY TALE OF PEBBLE BEACH!

Chick Lit meets Self Help in this high-spirited tale of a newly divorced, 40-something woman with two teenage sons who is trying to take control of her life, her sex-crazed body, and her new relationships with men – while struggling to build a career in advertising in the big city. When she realizes how disastrous her relationships with men are and an unsavoury business scandal threatens to ruin her burgeoning career, our brave heroine decides to go to therapy. And so begins one modern woman’s journey of self-discovery.

One Last Blind DateI welcome Erin Brady onto my blog today. Totally honored to have Erin here 🙂

I’ve already purchased this book … I love the sound it. Hope you do too 🙂

One Last Blind Date!

I am very excited to announce the release of my next book, “One Last Blind Date.” The story centers around Sarah Jenkins who, on her thirtieth birthday, gets a six-month subscription to an online dating service as a gift from her best friend. She’s not exactly thrilled with her present. After all, she had hoped for a new handbag or a trip to a tropical destination instead. But “happily married” Amy thinks she’s doing Sarah a big favor by throwing her into the dating pool, feet first and without a life vest, regardless of whether she’s ready to swim or not. Sarah is perfectly happy with her life and her career, but decides to give the service a try, if only for her friend’s sake. Besides, it’s the one gift that can’t be returned!

I can certainly sympathize with Sarah’s dating problems. I’d like to think we all can. Although it’s ancient history now, I certainly remember (like it was only yesterday) the anxiety I felt about dating and trying to find my soul mate. It was nerve wracking having friends and family set me up with guys they thought were perfect for me, but whom I knew nothing about. It was, at times, painful, but always comical. I can laugh about it now, but it took several years of therapy to get over it 🙂 It was interesting to see that the person they thought was Mr. Perfect for me was, in I was having lunch with a friend of mine a few months ago when the idea for this book dropped on my lap. She was sharing all of her online dating misadventures and I thought to myself, there’s definitely a storyline there. We’ve all been through this. We can all certainly identify with Sarah and her journey of one blind date after another after another. We can relate. Why not write about these dates and the journey of finding love while being true to yourself at the same time?

So I went home and started documenting my friend’s dates, as well as mine and a dozen other friends’ and, before I knew it (I couldn’t type the words fast enough), I had a book. A wonderful potpourri of pieced-together dates.

The finished product: It’s a light, romantic comedy and, hopefully to my readers, a good beach read!
