I'm Doing an Online Holiday Book Signing!

So, I'm doing my first ever online book signing. Over the years I've received quite a few requests to sell signed books online somehow, but I've never actually done it, until now. I thought the holiday season would be a great time to hold an online signing since books make great gifts for others -- or, you know, yourself. ;)

Here's how it works: now through Dec. 7th you can order copies of any of my paperback books. I'll sign and ship them via Priority Mail by Dec. 15th, and you'll have them in time for the holidays. (The order form is for continental US orders, but I'll ship your order anywhere in the world. If you need a book shipped internationally or to a non-continental US location, contact me and I'll make it happen.)

All orders will also come with a hand-written holiday greeting card, and if you want, I'll even put a bow on it. 

Basically, you'll get a signed and personalized book, just like at a regular signing. You'll have to imagine me presenting you with the book using my best Vanna White pose, though.
Need more details? Check out the order form for pricing (it's discounted) and other info.

P.S. If you're looking for book-themed clothing, you can find that in my merchandise store.

Lock and Key Book 3 Reveal!

Secrets are what Kerry has lived and breathed for the past three years, and those secrets may kill her, if she’s not careful. Her new life in a coastal North Carolina paradise is haunted by her past and ruled by her number one goal: to not be noticed. Even if that means denying her attraction to Officer Grey Morgan, who’s set his sights on her beyond any doubts and despite all odds.
Grey has spent his summer in pursuit of Kerry, but what he doesn’t know is that nothing with her is as it seems and loving her comes with a price.
What she doesn’t know is that there’s no risk he won’t take, and no way he’ll let her fight her demons alone.
Preorder now at…
Coming to other retailers Dec. 5th

Here it is -- the cover, blurb & release date reveal for Officer in Pursuit, Book 3 in the Lock and Key Series. Seems kind of crazy to me that when Dec. 5th rolls around, the series will almost be finished! There's one more book after this one: Jeremy's story. Release date & other details TBA. ;)

Queen City Indie Con Photo Recap

I just got back from Cincinnati, where I attended Queen City Indie Con, my last signing event for this year. I had a great time! Here are a few photos from the event...

Day 1: attending panels at the beautiful Memorial Hall building.

Day 2: at the signing.

Cover model Andrew (from my Always a Marine Box Set).

So, this is my Vanna White impression.

Dinner at Nicholson's.

After party #1 ... yes, there were more!

I'm giving away a signed Queen City Indie Con tote bag full of books and goodies in my November newsletter. If you're not a subscriber but would like to be, you can sign up here.

Thank you to all those who attended Queen City Indie Con, came to see me, hung out with me and Andrew, etc. You made it fun! :)

Love Liam and His Cuffs? You Can Vote for Your Favorite Officer!

About a week from today I'll be in Cincinnati for Queen City Indie Con. And I'm pretty excited about it! Andrew (book cover model, and also my brother) will be with me and we plan to have fun while we're there. 

Yesterday I found out that Officer Next Door was voted into the final round for the QCIC book awards in two categories: 'Best White-Knuckle Book' and 'Best All-Around Adult Book'. I'm not gonna lie ... that was a pretty nice surprise (and an ego boost). LOL Thank you to those who voted in the earlier rounds and put Liam and his cuffs in the finals.

If you'd like to cast your vote in the final round, you can - voting is open to the public.

Thank you. :)

P.S. Will you be at QCIC? If so, I'll see you there! Make sure you stop by my signing table Saturday for one of the handcuff charm bracelets Andrew will be giving to readers.

Ridiculously True (& Cute) Book T-Shirts

That's what I'm trying to fill my merchandise shop with. :) If you haven't gone to my site and hit the 'shop' tab lately, you probably haven't seen the new stuff that's gone live over the past couple weeks. Here are some examples...

I've retired my original designs, and these are the first of many new ones I'll be adding over the coming weeks and months. If you visit my shop, you'll see a variety of different colors and shirt styles (including long sleeve tops) bearing these designs.

Books and shopping happen to be two of my favorite things, so I've been having fun with my shop's revamp. 

If you'd like, you can browse my shop here.
