What's Happenin', Hot Stuff?

But I've been writing like crazy! Sorry, Blog Readers.
I started to post about what's happening that has prevented me from blogging much in April. The line from one of my favorite movies, Sixteen Candles, popped into my head so I thought I'd use it for the title of this post.

Spring Has Sprung

Yes, Spring finally arrived. Wildflowers covered the sides of our roads here in Texas, my roses are blooming their hearts out, and azaleas made the whole neighborhood look like one big flower garden.

Alas, spring has also brought those pesky thunderstorms, tornado warnings, and power outages when you least expect them. That sure plays havoc with writing.

Spring also brought the publication of Cinderella Blue. The price has now risen to $3.99, but I plan to offer sales on it so check the blog and social media for news of that. If you buy it and like it, please post a review.

New Box Set

On Tuesday, April 28, Love Blooms on Main Street will be released. This box set of 10 books contains my novel Old Enough to Know Better. If you haven't read it before, now is the chance to get it and 9 other romances for only 99cents. See below for buy links. The video for it is posted on the Video page of the blog. Take a look.

Another New Box Set

At the moment, I'm putting the final touches on Heat Lightning, a new novella that will be in the Summer Fire Ultimate Romance Collection. This box set is available for pre-order now--21 books for only 99cents. It will be published May 26. I'm currently doing a video for it so be sure and watch it when I post it on the blog. This collection will be something special with so many NY Times and USA Today bestselling authors in it.

Reviews Wanted

If you read a book--not just mine--and like it, please leave the author a short review. Just a paragraph saying why you liked it is sufficient. I know I deeply appreciate readers who post reviews. In fact, if you send me a link to a review you posted for one of my books, I'll send you a small gift as a token of my appreciation.

Giveaway News

The April Swag Bag Giveaway will close the last day of this month. To be entered to win, just leave a comment with your email address written out, not as a hot link, on a blog post this month. (Must be a real comment not 2-5 generic words left on each blog post to better your chances. Yes, that's what someone did last month. 55 comments made that way. I call those canned comments, and they will get killed by the spam filter.)

The April Swag Bag Giveaway is open to anyone who has NOT won a Swag Bag since Feb. 1, 2015. Winner to be announced on or before May 10, 2015, when I return from a trip.

    1. Thanks, Liz. I'm starting to write all the guest blog posts promoting Summer Fire, including the one for you. I plan to take a serious writing break in June. *LOL*
