New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author!
I think those achievements are the dream of every author. They've certainly been my dream for a lot of years, from the first small press book I sold back in 1998. I'm so excited to finally be able to claim this incredible distinction. The re-release of my first Harlequin American, HIS ONLY WIFE, hit these prestegious lists back in March and stayed on the NYT for five consecutive weeks.
Now, I can't claim all the credit myself. To be honest, I can probably claim only a small percentage. HIS ONLY WIFE was bundled with a re-release of a Linda Lael Miller's title, Just Kate. She's the big name draw, I was just the lucky person who got to ride her coattails. Thank you, Linda, from the bottom of my heart!
Still, great things are happening because of it. This summer will see the re-release of three more of my earlier Harlequin books. The first is a bundle of two titles in mass market paperback, THE COMEBACK COWBOY and THE ACCIDENTAL SHERIFF (one of my personal favorite books). Check out the cover and the awesome line above my name. In July, my brand new book, THE RANCHER'S HOMECOMING, the first in my Sweetheart, Nevada series, will hit the stands. This is a touching new three-book mini series about the small town of Sweetheart, brought to its knees in the wake of a devastating forest fire. Lastly, in August, my book COWBOY DAD will also be re-leased in a new mass market paperback.
It's a pretty darn exciting summer for me. Now, if I could just survive this overwhelming Phoenix desert heat, I'll have it made. Think it's time to run up to my place in the mountains for a long weekend. Hope you have some great summer plans, too.
