Hi-ho! Who wants more books to read?
When I began publishing Jane Austen inspired fiction in July 2014, I feared giving up. I am an accidental writer; that is, I never planned for this to be my career. I wanted to be an international business woman, jet-setting to exotic locations with an apartment in four major cities (and a boyfriend in each), and well . . . 🙂 I managed the first one and can’t say I regret the second part as I am happily married (and jet-setted in my twenties to stalk my hubby’s submarine) and I love my kids over the idea of 4 home bases. Wait, how am I an international business woman?
I have sold books in over 35 different countries! Okay, in reality, it was just digital or paperbacks shipping and I had nothing to do with the transaction but see the country pop up on my sales reports, but it’s still cool to say, right?
Now that my family is stable, settled, and no more emergency surgeries for the kids (hard to believe that is a year ago this month!), I have put out TWO books already this year: The Blessing of Marriage and To Capture Mr. Darcy.
And there’s MORE in the pipeline! Yep, every bob and bit of inspiration I have in my work in progress folder is getting finished up. That means this summer will see:
Jane and Graham Hamilton’s story (giveaway here where you can NAME THAT BOOK!)
Books that already have names!
A Spring Society (Spring 2 of the Seasons of Serendipity)
A Summer Spouse (Summer 2 of the Seasons of Serendipity)
The Trappings of Marriage (Book 4 of The Moralities of Marriage)
Yep, by end of August 2016, I plan to have 6 titles out for the year so far! HUZZAH. So buckle up and strap in, we’re in it to win it as my daughter says. 🙂 You can be a part of the Summer of Swooning by joining my mailing list so you don’t miss any announcements about my book release plans.
So let’s have a little fun and a giveaway? I will give away a $10 giftcard by email to Amazon or Nook for the winner randomly selected from those who help me NAME THAT BOOK! Jane and Hamilton do not have a NAME. 🙁 I know. It’s so sad.
But you wonderful people can help! Simply vote in the Google Form below or give your suggestion. If you are selected as the winner, I will also give you a thank you on the book’s acknowledgment page. 🙂
