Happy May! May is a month full of celebrations - Mother's Day, graduations, weddings. And this year I have an additional reason to celebrate. My Sept 2012 release, Handpicked Husband, has been awarded a Reviewers Choice Award from Romantic Times Magazine. I'm so very honored and absolutely tickled pink! I'll be at the convention in Kansas City early this month to accept the award and hope to see some of you there. I will also have advanced copies of the second book in this series, The Bride Next Door at the booksigning so those of you who are able to attend can get your copy a full month early!
And speaking of the Texas Grooms series, I'm having a blast working on the fourth book in the series. This one features the last of my grooms, the enigmatic Mitch Parker. The heroine I've matched with Mitch, Ivy Feagan is quite a handful, but she's turning out to be just what Mitch needs. I hope to be able to tell you a little more about it next month.
Once again I've got some great guests lined up for my Spotlight Interviews.
My spotlight author this month is a wonderful writer and very good friend - Linda Castillo. I think you'll enjoy getting to know her better, so check out her interview over on my AUTHOR VIP page.
Linda has generously agreed to give away one copy each of her two most recent books, Gone Missing and Breaking Silence, as the May giveaways for two of my lucky newsletter subscribers. So if you're not already subscribed, be sure to click on the newsletter button over on the left side of this page.
Karen Reid, an associate editor with Harlequin Superromance will be in my Industry Spotlight this month and you'll want to check out what she has to say about what drew her to the publishing field and what she's actively seeking. Look for her interview on my INDUSTRY VIP page.
And last but not least, here's my quote for the month.
"Blessed are the weird people - poets, misfits, writers, mystics, painters, troubadours - for they teach us to see the world through different eyes." ~Jacob Nordby
