Winners, Winners, & Whiners! Oh yeah...and a Contest Too!

Happy Friday, my Book Boosters!

It has been a long week for yours truly but alas Friday is here and I'm looking forward to a weekend getting caught up on movies I've been wanting to see on DVD.

Last weekend, I watched The Blind Side and The Lovely Bones. This week we have New Moon and The Vampire's Assistant (yes, I know...I'm in a paranormal state of mind).

What do you have planned for the first weekend in May?

If you're like me...you'll be whining (Boo Hoo! Waah!) a little about missing out on the RT Convention AGAIN this year. Here's hoping that I can make it to RWA Nationals in July, though. Any of you headed down south in July for that?

So, what can we do to have a little fun around here? How about a new contest & WINNERS from this past week here at the blog?

First up...I'm proud to announce that I've sold a 3 book (novella) series to Solstice Publishing. It is the Dessert Divas Series and they are Sexy but Sweet tales of the women of Sea Crest, Florida!

The first book in the series is entitled When Ginger Snapped and I've included the cover & blurb below for you. I should have a release date shortly! The second book is entitled When Cherry Spies and stay tuned for more details on this one very soon!



Blurb:

Combine a cheating husband and holiday shopping season madness and it’s enough to drive a mother straight to jail. Literally.

Meet Ginger Lockhart, a newly single mom who can’t take anymore of the emotional turmoil of her pending divorce or the holiday madness of the approaching Christmas season. In this hilarious yet heart wrenching tale of a woman on the brink of madness, Ginger finally snaps and ends up in jail.


Things soon take a turn for the sublime when she meets sexy massage therapist Caston DeLuca and he works his magical hands on her. Only then, can she begin to let the insanity and complications of life slip away but will he become more than just a one session soother?


Find out in the first of a new series by romance author Kerri Nelson. Meet the Dessert Divas, everything in life should be this sweet!

Oh Yeah. I won. :)

I'll be at Nationals this year. I hope to be very productive over the next few months and have something to pitch. We'll see how it goes.

Good luck with your new stories. I love the titles and as someone who loves to cook, I love the recipes. Have sent you one that is a great tasting cake. Hope you like it.
