Indie Author Day

“Writers aren’t exactly people…they’re a whole bunch of people trying to be one person.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

I believe Fitzgerald’s quote to be especially true for indie published writers. Not only do you have a cast of characters in your head vying for attention, as an indie writer you are the CEO, publicist, finance director and tech support of your own business.  Even if you hire out for some of the heavy lifting jobs (like editing), the success or failure of your enterprise rests squarely on your shoulders.
That’s why I’m thrilled to announce the inaugural IndieAuthor Day taking place in libraries across the country on October 8th with a live webcast scheduled for 2:00PM EST. 

 My local library, Washoe County Library-Spanish Springs, will have their event on Sunday, October 9th from 2:00-4:00PM PST. The Spanish Springs event will host about a dozen local writers (including yours truly).  Authors will have their books available for purchase and there will be an author Q&A from 2:30-3:30.


Curious if your local library is participating? Check out http://indieauthorday.com/where
Here are the dates:  Nationwide-October 8, 2016
                                Spanish Springs, NV-October 9, 2016

Hope to see you there!

Ladies Man-Available as a Pre-Order from Amazon

The release date is set for October 27th, but I'm excited to report that Ladies Man is available as a pre-order on Amazon. My second title in the Rhythm & Romance series and it's all about West Coast Swing.

Ladies Man

Clark Stevens has always had a way with women, but his teenage daughter despises him.  When his daughter comes to live with him fulltime, he enlists co-worker, Julie Wahl, to coach him on parenting skills.

As a single mom and paralegal, Julie Wahl, has successfully balanced family, work and swing dancing. After heartbreak on the dance floor, the last thing Julie needs is an office romance.  But she can hardly say no to a colleague in need, especially one with dark brown eyes and a killer grin.

Didn't Harris Channing do an amazing job with the cover! More in the weeks to follow.

Dancing to Australia

Did you know an Italian study discovered that recovering heart surgery patients were happier taking waltz classes than those who cycled or ran the treadmill? I know I'd rather be on the dance floor than anywhere else.

Quick update: I've been busy with the final edits on the 2nd title in the Rhythm & Romance series. Harris Channing just sent me the cover and it's gorgeous! I hope to release "Ladies Man" later this Fall.

Today I'm guest posting at Louisehttp://louiselyndon.blogspot.com Lyndon's blog about a certain cowboy who first invited me onto the dance floor. My sister Wild Rose author is based in Melbourne, Australia and I'm thrilled to be her guest. Hope to see you there!
