This morning I walked outside, carrying my bowl of rice crispies, and breathed in the awesome freshness of the changing of the seasons as we slowly creep into autumn. Normally my mornings are rushed—once I’m dressed it’s a dash to the car (no time to stop and smell the roses, or the morning breeze), drive to work with my nose stuck in my laptop (no, I’m not driving, hubby is), and then a dash inside the building where I worked. Stay there until 6pm and repeat the sequence in reverse. So I savored the time this morning, because today feels like the first day of the rest of my life—my life as a full-time author.
But, this blog is not about that journey. This blog is about the abundance of spring happening in the northern hemisphere. Love Blossoms is a collaboration by 7 authors from all corners of the globe, bringing readers 7 spring-fresh romances in one neatly packaged box set. And this weekend, this amazing collection went on sale for just $0.99c (an 80% saving off the normal price). But hurry, sale ends today though. If you haven’t yet bought your copy, you can do so now by following this link.
On Friday the authors ran a Bookbub ad, and when we quickly got the Amazon orange ribbon—No. 1 Bestseller—and placed No. 1 in all three categories the set was listed in, the weekend was spent watching the Amazon author rankings for Religion and Spirituality. I started Friday off not having seen the Amazon Top 100 for some time. By Saturday, we were all in the top 18, with five making it to page 1 (top 10).
Forget about spring fever ... we were all Bookbub frenzied. It was so exciting.
But, besides Love Blossoms, I had more spring fever happening last week when I released Spring’s Promise. And to share the fever, I’m giving away one copy of Spring’s Promise, and one copy of Love Blossoms. Leave a comment to be in the draws (and if you only want to be in one draw, please state so in your comment).
1972. Every day in Belfast, Northern Ireland, holds risk, especially for the mayor’s daughter. But Dr. Olivia O'Hare has a heart for people and chooses to work on the wrong side of a city where colors constantly clash. The orange and green of the Republicans pitted against the red and blue of those loyal to Britain. While they might share the common hue of white, it brings no peace.
Caught between the Republicans and Loyalists’ conflict, blue-collar worker Ryann Doyle has to wonder if there’s life before death. The answer seems to be a resounding, ‘No’. His mother is dead, his father’s a drunk, and his younger brother, Declan, is steeped in the Provisional IRA. Then he crosses paths with Olivia O’Hare.
After working four days straight, mopping up PIRA’s latest act of terror, Olivia is exhausted. All she wants is to go home and rest. But when she drives away from Royal Victoria Hospital, rest is the last thing Olivia gets.
When Declan kidnaps the Lord Mayor of Belfast’s daughter, Ryann has to find a way to rescue the dark-haired beauty, though it means he must turn his back on his own flesh and blood for someone he just met.
