Yup! I'm entering my latest contest into the Beach Bum Book Bonanza!
For anyone who signs up for my new yahoogroups reader list at I will put their name into the monthly drawing for a bunch of goodies.
In celebration of my latest release I'm giving away a download of The Three Truths of Katie Talmadge... it's been getting great reviews and it's the perfect summer read. Love, hope and a little magic all in one great story!
Also, I'm giving away a book thong (sorry, not a better word for it yet...) that is one of my own fabulous creations along with a charm bracelet that I am specially making to go along with the release of Three Truths. (When you read the book you'll find out why this is so appropriate!)
So, if you want to get in on the action and have a great read for those long summer nights then go ahead and sign up... And don't forget to check out The Three Truths of Katie Talmadge on my website



It's hard to believe that it is actually available. I sold this book on my birthday almost two years ago!
Let me give you a bit of a peek at what it's about...
Katie Talmadge is perfectly content with her staid, predictable... sometimes boring life. Yes, she could definitely use a helping hand in the little flower shop that she runs in Salem, Massachusetts. And sometimes there just aren't enough funds to cover all of the extra costs and repairs that have to be done. But for Katie, having a routine means safety and consistency.
So... with just one week until Halloween and Salem in it's usual scaling up of events for the holiday Katie gets the surprise of her life when Rita Thorton enters her shop. Rita is every eccentric aunt, odd relative or just plain charming-but-slightly-batty-and-loveable person we all have in our lives. And Rita is on a mission. She's convinced that Katie has one week to discover three very big truths about her life and she's determined to help her. She's prepared to work her Cinderella-like magic with Salem twist on Katie and make her see that sometimes making a scary change can bring you great happiness.
Of course, what would a romance be without a dashing man. And Simon Thorton fits the bill. He's tall, dark and handsome and he's guarding his heart very closely after the death of his wife. Now five years later he's determined to stay out of the path of his matchmaking aunt and remain in his own safe, little world. Only when he meets Katie does he begin to realize that losing someone you love doesn't mean dying yourself.
I really hope that you'll pick up this book. It was truly a book of my heart and I hope that everyone else will enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.
Right now it's available through as an ebook for $6.00 or in trade paperback size for $10.95. If you go to yahoogroups and sign up for my readers list (click on the underlined copy for a shortcut there), I'll be glad to send you out a postcard and magnet and enter you in my latest drawing for a charm bracelet (made by me) and a jeweled book thong (sorry, not a better word for this). I'll be giving away one set each month until I run out of bracelets!
By the way, the list is my way of getting the latest information out to my readers. But if you have any questions I can always be reached through .
Please feel free to drop me a line and let me know what you think of the book!
