Book Giveaway!!!

I had my large print USA copies of Rodeo Daddy arrive yesterday! I'm super excited as the cover is probably my favorite yet. I know, I know, I keep saying that, but the art department keep creating such beautiful covers for my books.

So, how to enter? It's simple. Leave a comment telling me why you like or dislike animals in books. Rodeo Daddy features a whole bunch of horses, including a pretty gorgeous stallion, as well as a pretty cute dog saved from death row at the pound too.

This is a photo of me with my horse Finn from a few years back, and also one of me riding him when I was 28 weeks pregnant! It was my last outing on him during my pregnancy because I was starting to feel a little unbalanced up there with my big bump, but we had lovely trail rides walking through the forest while I was pregnant. He was great inspiration for the stallion in Rodeo Daddy. I absolutely adore him and I'd hate not to walk out the door and see him everyday.

My book is officially available the eharlequin store on the 1st of October, and that's when I'll draw the winner!

Rodeo Daddy

I've just this moment read the back cover blurb for the UK version of Rodeo Daddy, and I thought I'd share .... You can buy pre-order the UK version of the book here, or the USA version here. Oh, and there's also a full Chapter One excerpt here too!!

"A fall ended Lark Anderson’s rodeo career – and his marriage – leaving him a single dad. The community, suspicious of the new ‘celebrity’ resident, nominated Sophie Baxter to keep the hot-tempered cowboy out of trouble. But the sight of Lark hugging his daughter breaks Sophie’s heart, reminding her of what will never be hers…"

New Beginnings

This week has been filled with lots of new ideas and characters, as I start work on my sixth book for Harlequin Romance. I've tentatively called it A Soldier's Second Chance, but of course that will no doubt change prior to publication. Once I've done some more plotting I'll share details!

I'm also waiting anxiously to hear back from my agent on a new project she's re-reading this week. It's a middle grade novel for young girls ...

What's Happening?

I've been silent for a few days because I had to turn in a book to my editor - yay, done! And I also had a proposal and first chapter due to her as well. I've just hit send on that, so fingers crossed she likes it :)

I have also just sent off a completely different project to my agent ... a book for little girls! It's a fun "pony" story for middle grade readers, and I'm *hoping* that she sees potential in it. Ever since I read the Saddle Club (over and over again) as a girl, I've wanted to write a pony series, so it really would be a dream come true.

To the winners of my book giveaway - I've sent all your books off so hopefully they will be arriving soon if they haven't already.

Oh, and before I forget, the wonderful Wanda over at Good Choice Reading is running a competition, and I'm giving away signed copies of Soldier on Her Doorstep AND The Army Ranger's Return. Head there now and enter!! If you want to know more about me and my writing, she has an interview up with the giveaway.
