DOUBLE DIPPING's Release Day!
Yippee!! Double Dipping is officially out today! For those interested, it's the story of opposites colliding when a dedicated second-grade teacher fights the school’s new financial director to reinstate a much-beloved autumn festival. But there are secrets, ambition, attraction and meddling family members complicating matters in this small Midwestern town. Part light mystery, part romantic comedy and entirely packed with delectable sweets, including a step-by-step recipe for making homemade chocolate-cherry ice cream -- hey, I take my book research seriously -- it's available now on Amazon, B&N and Smashwords for just $2.99! (And there's a full Chapter One excerpt here.)
End of commercial -- I do hope that anyone who reads my latest digital romance will enjoy it, though. This story went through a gazillion revisions over the years and was originally critiqued by my wonderful writing friends, Simone Elkeles, Jennifer Stevenson and Sara Daniel (as well as most of the Chicago-North RWA chapter ;), and I am infinitely grateful for their help.
In other news, I just found out that On Any Given Sundae was recommended as a Hot Pick in Self-Publishing in the October issue of Romantic Times BOOKreviews!! Thanks, RT! Looking forward to seeing it in print when my copy of the magazine arrives this week.
Oh! FYI, there is a Goodreads giveaway going on for A Summer in Europe. Ten readers will get an autographed ARC, so please sign up and spread the word.
And, in completely unrelated news, I went to see the film "The Help" this weekend (along with millions of other people), and I thought it was tremendously well done. Who else has read the novel? Anyone else go to the movie? And is it wrong that I now have a serious crush on actor Chris Lowell??! He makes me wish I were 25 and from Atlanta...sigh.
Would love to hear what's going on with all of you! Wishing you a great week.
