AllAuthor contest

(and other news)

CHANGED has made it into round 2 of the AllAuthor cover contest! I get so many compliments on this cover, and absolutely love it. No, it’s not a sexy man-chest, but it fits Kate and Quinn’s story so perfectly. It was designed by Marisa at Cover Me Darling.

If you would give me a vote, I’d totally be OK with that!

If you liked the cover of my book,
Changed: (New Adult Romance), please vote for it for the Cover of the Month contest on AllAuthor.com!

In the other news part of this random update, the Regency story I’ve been sporadically working on is now a finalist in the NOLA Stars Suzannah Contest! I’m excited to see what 2019 has in store. Good luck to the other finalists!

My newsletter will be coming out tomorrow. There will be all kinds of goodies in there, like book news (the best kind of news there is!), giveaways, freebies, and the next chapter of Permanent Virgin. So make sure you sign up! It’s going to be epic!

In case this is the first time you’re stopping in, maybe you don’t know that Changed is available in Kindle Unlimited! And because the cover is so pretty, here it is again. AND, if you click it, then that takes you to Amazon and you can grab your copy in KU. Better get it before time runs out. Changed will be leaving KU in January 2019.

Speaking of free, I have another surprise for you! I wrote a short story for Halloween. The Kirkbride is a mix of romance, mystery, and paranormal. Set in Fergus Falls, MN in 1947, the main character is Andrew Korpi. Andrew is a veteran of World War II and has begun having visions. After he is accused of murdering his mother his family commits him to The Kirkbride but the visions continue.

It is a quick read but I think you’ll enjoy it. It is also available on Prolific Works. No signup required.
