Don’t miss the opportunity to visit “the most romantic town on the eastern seaboard”!  You can find the ebook, Smitten, on sale right now at Amazon for only $2.51. 

Welcome to Smitten, Vermont.

With the help of four friends, it’s about to become the most romantic town in America.

The proposed closing of the lumber mill comes as unwelcome news for the citizens of Smitten. How will the town survive without its main employer? A close-knit group of women think they’ve got just the plan to save Smitten. They’ll capitalize on its name and turn it into a tourist destination for lovers—complete with sweet shops, a high-end spa, romantic music on the square, and cabins outfitted with fireplaces and hot tubs.

But is this manly town ready for an influx of romantically-minded guests?

Country music sensation Sawyer Smitten, the town’s hometown hero, wants to help by holding his own wedding there on Valentine’s Day. And little Mia’s lavender wreaths hang all over town as a reminder that faith can work miracles. Along the way, four women spearheading the town’s transformation—energetic Natalie, sophisticated Julia, graceful Shelby, and athletic Reese—get in the spirit by reviving their own love lives.

Join best-selling inspirational romance authors (and real-life BFFs) Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt, and Denise Hunter for an inspiring stay at the (soon-to-be) most romantic town on the eastern seaboard.

One visit . . . and you’ll be smitten too!

Today’s buzz is about a website I recently discovered.

www.authorgraph.com

This innovative website allows authors and readers to interact through digital books.  Authors add their books to the site and are then able to send Authorgraphs directly to their readers.  As a reader, you can request an author’s digital signature.  The website currently boasts over 7,000 authors who are participating.

Sign up is simple and it’s free!  I recently requested and received the digital signature of one of my favorites, Rachel Hauck, author of The Wedding Dress, and many other fantastic novels.  How fun is that!

Browse the site today and see if your favorite authors participate!

Let’s begin…

15 Jul

I can’t begin to talk about books without first telling you about some of my very favorite gals.  They are the ones I visit with each morning, soaking up their wit and wisdom.  I love the chatter that goes along with each day’s topic and I enjoy sharing a few thoughts of my own!  We gather on the porch each weekday and I invite you to join us. 

Let me go ahead and introduce you to these lovely ladies.  They are Lisa Wingate, Beth Webb Hart, Julie Cantrell, Rachel Hauck, and Shellie Rushing Tomlinson.  All of the belles are AMAZINGLY talented and I look forward to sharing their books and other endeavors with you.
