Holiday Season Giveaway!

Hello Everyone, and may you have a happy start to the holiday season! I’d like to give away 25 copies of my Christmas romantic comedy, The Dancer and the Cowboy, in the Kindle version, to anyone who is interested. Let me know by sending me an email. I’ll contact you to let you know if you are a winner (of course you’re a winner anyway, but you know what I mean . . . XD). I can only send out free ebooks to folks living in the U.S., even though I wish I could send them everywhere. 🙂 Happy Holidays to you and best of luck! Keep scrolling for the synopsis . . .

Celina is the director of a prestigious ballet school in Dallas. Her father passed away recently and her elderly mother is living all by herself on a ranch in Montana. The hired man just quit and she must find someone to run the ranch until they can sell it, and convince her mother to move back with her to the city.

Catrina’s Uncle Cody, from Book 1, leaves his cattle ranch in Idaho and goes to Montana to help take care of the ranch. When he learns of Celina’s predicament—that her mother refuses to leave—he begins hatching a plan to help her.

In despair, Celina decides she will have to quit her beloved teaching job in order to care for her mother. She returns to Dallas to finish teaching her final semester, planning to come back to Montana during spring break; but when she arrives at the ranch, she finds that the furniture and belongings are gone, and so is her mother!

The Cowgirl and the Cowboy, Catalyst Series Book 5, gets a new cover . . . Yay!

Good Morning, Everyone! Just wanted to pop in and show you the next new cover in my series of short romantic comedies. I’m also going to include a pic of the inside formatting because it is just so darn cute.

The books in this series are just a collection of short fun reads that should be suitable for anyone; I wrote them with that in mind. That’s why I call them “clean.” When my daughter was around 10 years old, she read books like most people drink water. It was so challenging to find good quality books to give her. I really had to work at it! So, if anyone else has a child like that, I know the work it takes to find reading material that is suitable for that age group. Here’s a short synopsis of the series, to give you an idea of what you’ll find in the books:

The Catalyst Series of books is the story of Catrina A. Liszt. Gorgeous, wealthy, quirky, and single, she’s obsessed with pairing up all her friends and acquaintances. While she does have a job working for her father’s corporation as CEO of Human Resources, matchmaking is her passion. Each book captures the story of a man and a woman she’s painstakingly selected for each other, to be a perfect match. 

Her loyal and tireless minion is Adrian, who manages to put at her fingertips any information she requires, often at a moment’s notice. He’s also the one in charge of keeping champagne at the ready for their celebrations whenever the match is successful and an engagement is announced.

Join Catrina and Adrian in this light-hearted collection of romantic comedy adventures. 

I’m hoping to get a boxed set of Books 1 through 5 out in time for Christmas. Wish me luck!

New Cover for Book Three!

Hello everyone! I can’t tell you how pleased I am with this artist and what she designs for my book covers. Each one is unique and fun, and they perfectly capture the essence of the story.

The Olympian and the Cowboy, Catalyst Series Book 3

Daisy is a new mother, recently widowed, and she needs a job. Catrina, our beloved matchmaker, tells her about a teaching opportunity in Northern California at a horse training facility. Since Daisy went to the Olympics on the U.S. Equestrian Team, she’s excited at the chance to be back in the world of horses. 

The owner, Danielle, is thrilled to hire her and has great plans for Daisy to teach English riding lessons since that is her area of expertise. However, her brother, Dakota, suspects Daisy is simply an unwed mother who is lying about her illustrious experience as an athlete.

When Dakota is confronted with a woman bearing an infant who is supposedly his, Daisy shows him compassion, even after he has treated her poorly. That, coupled with her phenomenal horse instinct that is equal to his own, has Dakota rethinking his opinion of her.

Recipes Included!

New Book Cover!

I love this new cover for the second book in the Catalyst Series. The artist did such a lovely job, don’t you think? It’s available on Amazon Kindle for 99 cents, or paperback for $5.99.

Judging a Book by its Cover . . . 

I think we all do that. Totally. Even though we know we shouldn’t. We can’t help it. It was a difficult decision for me to give in to that reality. I love my homemade book covers, they were so fun to make, and I’d hoped people might decide to read my work anyway, even though the cover wasn’t professional, but I learned that it just isn’t that way. So I found a wonderful graphic designer and she came up with what I think is a darling cover for my first book.

The Baker and the Cowboy, Book 1

I also did some updates to go with the new cover, and this edition includes recipes! Since Bethany is a baker, I had fun selecting some of my favorite recipes for Chocolate Cake, Double Chocolate Cookies, Blueberry Pie, and Cherry Cobbler.
