The COUNTDOWN begins to the official release date of Cradle of Secrets. In 6 days it will be hitting store shelves and I couldn't be more thrilled! If you're in New England, you'll probably be seeing me stuffing books with bookmarkes and signing at Walmart and wherever else Steeple Hill Books are sold. I'm making November my get out and sign month.
I'd like to ask a favor of all of you. If in your travels to the bookstore or bookracks you see Cradle of Secrets on the shelf, post here on the blog that you've seen the book and where you've seen it! We authors never know exactly where our books will end up, so it'll be kind of cool for me to mark the map every time someone lets me know the book has been received.
I'll be setting up a virtual booksigning for those of you who would like to receive an autographed copy of Cradle of Secrets and don't happen to find one of my signed books on the shelves. More on that next week when I have more details.
Now, for contest news. I received an overwhelming number of entries in my Texas Hearts series contest, many from bookclub subscribers and some from people who've read my blogs. Thank you so much for all your support and excitement about Cradle of Secrets. I couldn't be happier. I'm thrilled to announce that I've pulled the name of one lucky winner out of a hat and that winner is bookclub member Carol Griese. She will be receiving the entire Texas Hearts series from Avalon Books which will include Her Heart for the Asking, His Heart for the Trusting, The More I See and Gypsy Hearts.
If you didn't win, don't be disappointed. You can still read these books by checking them out of your local library. If you're library doesn't have a copy, you could always ask them to order the book or get it through inter-library loan.
Thank you again. I'm so blessed to have all this support for my new book. Until next week, many blessings!
