Hearts in Motion 235x350 72dpiI love good news! Hearts in Motion is one of the featured books at My Romance Reads. Romance Reads Book Club sends emails with notices of free and bargain books straight to your email. If you’re an avid reader like I am, it’s great to get their emails every day.

My other good news is that Romance Super Bundle II: Second Chances – the bundle that was on the USA Today bestseller list – is 100 in paid Kindle today! The lower numbers started yesterday. We haven’t done any special promotion, and we have no idea how it happened, but we’re happy. One of my co-authors on the bundle just said, “Keep your fingers crossed! Momma needs a NYT to go with her USA Today.” LOL

My last piece of news is that I just finished going over the last edit of my novella, Dragon Mama Blues. :) I have to read it once more before sending to Zoe Dawson for the paranormal bundle that it’s in. This was a tough novella – perhaps because I’ve been writing contemporary romances and kept wanting to turn this into a relationship book. But I’m happy with the result and think my readers will be happy, too.

Any good news in your life? What are you happy about today?

I love the word Done. But it’s actually never done. I’m writing a stand-alone sequel to Dragon Blues. It’s titled Dragon Mama Blues. It was one of those stories that gave me a lot of trouble. I did two extensive revisions. Last night I sent it to my editor. At this point, I can’t tell if it’s good enough. I’ve read it too many times in a row, and when I do that, it’s hard to see the full picture. I’m waiting for my editor’s thoughts. (Amy Knupp at Blue Otter Editing, if you’re interested – and she’s fabulous!)

Today, I’m catching up on various non-writing stuff, plus I’m thinking of my next project. What are you doing? Anything you love?

Ninna’s new job in the local animal shelter includes a yummy vet…and a dog who talks to her. Not just any dog…a fat, old, smart-alecky Basset Hound who says his name is Mosey.With all this going on, she doesn’t have time to worry about the rash of break-ins and the sense of being watched. She’s too busy worrying that she’s nuts.

In a heartwarming tale of love, producer Logan MacLeesh, dumped by the woman he loves, lets squatter Maddie Barrymore, her young son and cat stay in his grandmother’s house… as long as she tells him a story every night. Far away, in another state, a homeless dog begins an impossible journey to find the man who’s meant for him…

Can a fierce, desperate long-ago love soar anew?

Feb 142014 was my release Facebook party for CRAZY SEXY LOVE, Rescued Hearts book 3. If you missed it, my apologies. I was going low key on this. I just sent out my newsletter and 3 gift card giveaways on my author Facebook page. You can read more about CRAZY SEXY LOVE and an excerpt here. I already have a lovely review. Here’s part of it:

“In Crazy, Sexy Love, Edie gives us a heartfelt romance that was love from the moment 4 year old Sam heard Callie’s musical laughter. I love how Edie starts Crazy, Sexy Love with Sam and Callie’s persepectives as children, and she moves on from there. It was a lot of fun reading about what love means to a couple of 4 year olds! Edie takes us to different times of their lives so we get a good background on both Sam and Callie – making Crazy, Sexy Love flow off the pages, easy to follow and understand what’s happening.” ~Sue Peace

You can read more at the Peaces of Me blog.

Hearts_in_Motion_200x300I also lowered the price of the first Rescued Hearts book, HEARTS IN MOTION, to 99 cents. It’s part of my plan to make more people smile and feel good. And appreciate their dogs and cat more – though I know people who are pretty appreciative already. You can find all the links, etc., here.

I hope you’re having a wonderful Valentine’s Day. My husband and I are going to watch Captain Phillips. Other than that, I’ve started my new book, and it has an awesome title. Literally, as “awesome” is in the title.

Despite the crazy weather, I’m feeling very good. How are you feeling?

Jan 082014

I’m so pleased. I priced my two short stories, “The Fat Cat” and “Dead People in Love”, free at every etailer except Amazon and Barnes & Noble, which don’t allow authors to price books lower than 99 cents. But Amazon has price-matched both stories now. Yay! (If you have a Nook, you should be able to get them from Kobo or Smashwords; B&N doesn’t price-match. Sorry.)

I plan on leaving them perma-free. It’s likely that sometime Amazon will take one or both off free and then put it on again, but right now, they’re free and I’m happy. :)

The blurbs are below. Click on the cover image and it will take you to the Amazon page; if you’d like a different store, click here for The Fat Cat, and here for Dead People in Love:

The Fat Cat 133x200_72dpi

Tory’s not a conventional witch…

Her life has turned upside down. A cat is talking to her. Her ex disapproves of her. And a sociopath who calls himself a magic man has stolen the souls of seven woman—including one of her best friends.

He’s a soul eater…

And Tory is his next target. He has the god of war on his side. She has something on her side, too: an old, flatulent and fat black cat.

**THE FAT CAT is a short paranormal romance-approximately 10,000 words. It was originally published in the 2011 charity anthology, ENTANGLED.**

dPIL 133x200

Some people will do anything for the perfect address…

Ghost therapist Cassie Taylor is hired to get rid of a ghost haunting an upscale Chicago condo. But the elderly resident doesn’t want her gentlemanly apparition to leave. She loves him and he loves her.

Too bad her grandson and his fiancée insist either the ghost goes – or she goes.

Too bad she’d signed the deed to the condo to her grandson to help him avoid inheritance taxes.

Too bad the fiancée has plans of her own.

Throw in a pretty neighbor, a dirty family scandal, and Cassie’s very new, very sexy and sometimes very grumpy husband, and anything can happen…even murder.

**This Haunted Hearts short story is a stand-alone sequel to Dead People. It’s approximately 12,000 words.**


Have a wonderful January! No matter how crazy the weather is.

reviewertoppick2I feel like I’ve gotten a gift from Night Owl Reviews and reviewer Delanna! I have 5 Top Pick reviews that were posted yesterday! They are Hearts in Motion, Christmas at Angel Lake, Dead People, Dead People in Love, and Galaxy Girls.

What makes it something I needed is because the release of my next Rescued Hearts book, CRAZY, SEXY LOVE, will be delayed. I was planning to have it out in late December or early January, but I ended up making extensive revisions. I’m still revising, but it’s almost there. I should be sending it to a reader in a couple of days, and I’m much happier with the way it’s going. It’s different from other books I’ve written, but it’s also the same in some ways. The hero is a drummer in a band, and this will be my third book with a musician hero. I seem to be drawn to them. And of course, it has a rescue cat. :)

The Fat Cat 250x366_72dpi

My last bit of good news is that “The Fat Cat“, the short story from the charity anthology ENTANGLED, is up now. I’m putting it free where I can, but I had to put it for 99 cents at Amazon (and B&N, which won’t price it any lower). I’m waiting for Amazon to price match before I make an announcement. I haven’t even made a page for it on my Website yet, and I’ll do that as soon as I’m done with my revisions.

Here’s a quote from Delanna’s for Christmas at Angel Lake:
“This is a heartwarming story is so many ways. There is romance in bloom. The warming of a Grouch’s heart. The love of the pet you thought you saved which in turn saves you.”

In case I don’t post before the holidays, I hope yours is amazing!

This is the last day of my Tasty Review Tour for Christmas at Angel Lake, and I’m so thrilled! It started awesome, it continued awesome, and it ended awesome. :) Two reviewers didn’t post because of illness in their families, and I understand that. I have quotes from quite a few of the reviews on Christmas at Angel Lake’s book page. Christmans_at_Angel_Lake_200x300_72dpiHere are just a few review snippets:

“Certain to put a smile on your face, this story demands to be read and then re-read often.” ~I Am, Indeed

“I absolutely love the story between Maddie and Logan, it’s beautiful, raw, heartfelt, and sweet…. It is a perfect holiday novel and you would be missing out if you let it pass you by.” ~Escaping Reality One Book at a Time

“Christmas at Angel Lake by Edie Ramer is an awesome book! Maddie and Logan’s story is unique and entertaining… This one definitely put me in the Christmas mood!” ~Brooke Blogs

I’m happy about so many things. November is the month of gratitude. Some of you know my husband had a run-in with a deer in late September – and my husband was on a motorcycle. He broke a bone in his leg and a couple in his ankle. We’re glad it wasn’t worse. He’s still using the “boot,” but he’s walking now, and he went back to work this week. And I finished the first draft of my next Rescued Hearts book and am halfway done with the second. I do feel a lot of gratitude, and the reviews just make it even better.

What are you grateful for?
