My 4th Miracle Interrupted book should be available in a couple of days, so I’ve decided to put STARDUST MIRACLE, the first full-length book of the series, up for free where I could. It’s now free at Amazon Kindle, iTunes, Smashwords, Kobo and All Romance.

My favorite new cheese is one I found from a free sample at a grocery store. I hope a lot more people find my series the same way. These books are a genre shift from my paranormal romances. The closest category is magical realism, but that isn’t an official category. So I’m saying that this series will appeal to people who enjoy romance, laughter, tears, love, puppies, cats and magic. It sounds like a ‘sweet’ series, but they usually have a couple steamy scenes, depending on the book. (Not the first one, MUST WORSHIP CATS, which is entirely in the point of view of a cat and has no sex scenes.)

I had a great holiday, and I feel like I’m ending the year in a very good way. How about you? How are you ending your year?

I went a little mad this week and put two books free on Kindle for two days: Jan. 19 and 20

Karin Tabke and I had talked about putting YOU’VE GOT MURDER for free this week but hadn’t confirmed it. Then I realized that Chinese New Year is next Monday, and it’s the Year of the Dragon. Of course I had to do something special for DRAGON BLUES. I decided to put that up for free. Since the two books are so different, I thought they might get more cross-downloaders than usual if we put them up at the same time. I emailed Karin and said I could do them together or next week, and she told me to go for the double hitter.

If you’re not familiar with the books, DRAGON BLUES is a gritty paranormal suspense with a hot romance. YOU’VE GOT MURDER is wickedly humorous mystery told in emails, IMs, texts and even a chat room. Already a LOT of books have been downloaded. Because YOU’VE GOT MURDER is so different from the books Karin and I usually write, it hasn’t gotten the love we think it deserves. I hope this brings it to the attention of a lot of readers. And of course I want people to read about my soulful dragon-man (as one reviewer called him).

More news! GALAXY GIRLS made the 2011 Reviewer’s Choice List at Paranormal Romance Guide as one of the Best Reads of 2011. I’m honored.

All in all, I’m having a great start to 2012. Now, if I could only add a few more hours to each day, it would be very amazing.

How is your 2012 working so far?

Galaxy Girls was a Paranormal Romance Guild Reviewers Choice Award for Best Reads of 2011 (along with other books chosen by other reviewers). I'm thrilled that the reviewer chose Galaxy Girls. It's an honor to be on a best of the year list.

I’m starting off 2012 by giving away my favorite book, CATTITUDE. It’s FREE on Kindle for 3 days, Jan. 1st through Jan. 3rd.

This is my first free experiment. It will be interesting to see what will happen. And it will be interesting to see if the free downloads transfer into sales. Cattitude is a “feel good” book. It has great reviews – 42 with a 4.5 star average. A lot of reviewers used the word “love.” I’m sure this experiment won’t hurt, and I’m happy that even more people will be reading about Belle and her cat attitude.

I hope your beginning of 2012 will be interesting, too. My wish for you is a healthy, prosperous and fun 2012!
