Release Blitz Information For It’s Complicated – Request For Participants

The December 4th release date for It’s Complicated is drawing near, and Roane Publishing has a Release Blitz planned for December 4th to the 8th. If any of my blogger friends would like to join in the fun and help spread the word for me, you can sign up for the blitz using THIS FORM.

There’s also a place on the form for you to request an arc copy of It’s Complicated if you’re interested in reviewing it.

It’s Complicated is a sequel to Show No Weakness, and it’s Maggie Lapage’s story. As evident in Show No Weakness, Maggie can get herself in a trouble at times. She calls it helping people. Others might call it meddling. Tom O’Shay is one of those other people. Problem is he needs her help, whether he wants it or not. And he definitely does not. Just one of the reasons why It’s Complicated.

She’s a children’s counselor devoted to helping others; he’s a stubborn client reluctant to accept her assistance. He wants a warm and loving relationship; she prefers to keep things physical. Professional boundaries dictate neither of them can have what they want.

Having grown up with no one but herself to count on, Maggie Lapage carefully guards her feelings. Professionally, she goes above and beyond to give others the support she wishes she’d had as a child. When she develops a forbidden attraction to a client’s father, she does what she thinks is necessary, to save his family, and to protect her own heart.

Tom O’Shay finds his life caught in a nightmare when he risks losing custody of his daughter. It goes against his character to seek help, but he doesn’t have a choice. That doesn’t mean he has to like it. Everything changes when he falls hard for his daughter’s counselor, and he suddenly has two fights on his hands. One for his daughter, and another for the woman he loves.

It’s complicated, but is it impossible?

Thanks so much for your support. It’s greatly appreciated.

Visual Effects Virtual Book Tour, Week Five

This is the final set of links to some of the interviews I did while on Visual Effects’ virtual book tour last month.

I wrote an article for Lisabet’s post, rather than doing an interview. It talks about why my dream to write got put in the trunk and what happened when I finally took it out.

I hope you’ve enjoyed learning more about me, my writing process and, of course, Visual Effects.

Visual Effects Virtual Book Tour, Week Two

As I mentioned last week, Visual Effects has just come off its virtual book tour. I had stops at many different websites hosted by wonderful and generous authors. Each Monday in May I’ll post links to some of the interviews, in case you missed reading them the first time. I hope you’ll enjoy learning more about me, my writing process and, of course, Visual Effects.

Visit with Peggy Jaeger

Wild Women Authors

The cool thing about the Wild Women interview is that it’s with Drey Winston, the female character in Visual Effects. Whether you’ve already read the book or not, you might enjoy getting the facts from her perspective.

Visual Effects Virtual Book Tour, Week One

My newest book, Visual Effects, released on April 13th, and at that time I embarked on a three-week virtual book tour. Virtual tours are so much easier to do than real ones. You get to stay home, after all. Can even show up in your PJs, if you’re so inclined. It might be easier, but it does take time and effort, though, to come up with answers to the various interview questions, monitor the websites for comments, post about the events on Twitter and Facebook…

I’m not a fan of the many promotional aspects of the publishing business, and will probably never feel comfortable trying to sell my own work. But I am very grateful for the support of my fellow authors who gave me a spot on their websites, as well as those who tweeted and retweeted and shared and commented. It was wonderful and so appreciated.

The book tour has now come to an end, but throughout the month of May, I’ll post links to the various interviews, in case you missed reading them the first time. Some of the questions were tricky to answer, most were quite fun. I hope you’ll enjoy learning more about me, my writing process and, of course, Visual Effects.
