I’m Number WHAT?

Last night I was up until midnight for completely non-writing-related reasons and decided to meander over to Amazon as soon as I got my email that A Christmas Reunion was live. I was not at all expecting what I found.

My book debuted at #1 in Tudor Historical Romance! I really thought I was going to pass out. I never dreamed that one of my books would be #1 in anything, not by a long shot!

I had to sit for a minute and think about things. When I first got the idea to write a historical romance novel, I submitted it to Harlequin because of course I did. Also I had submitted a contemporary to them a long time ago, which is another story entirely. They didn’t even send a reply, just a photocopy of their submission guidelines. I tried unsuccessfully to get an agent, then find a small publisher, which worked out twice until both of them closed and I was on my own.

When I made the decision to start self-publishing my own books, I knew there was a better than average chance I wouldn’t make more than a couple of bucks. Now I’ve had a book signing, one book reached the top 100 on Amazon, and another debuted at #1. Not to mention The Search for Sam getting shortlisted for a prize. I’m not sure how I got here but it can only go up.

As of the time I’m writing this, I am sitting at #2 in the new releases but for a brief shining moment I had the coveted orange flag and I can’t think of a better Christmas gift from the universe.

A Christmas Reunion: Christmas Wishes Book 2

img_4033-1It’s a special day for me! Not only is A Christmas Reunion releasing today, it’s also my very first holiday romance. I’m really hoping people enjoy it, though there’s not a single Christmas tree in it.

The story is set in Tudor Wales in 1522, which was so much fun to research. My Google search results will never be the same again, but I learned so much about the time period that I would feel completely comfortable writing another book set in it. It’s sort of sandwiched between Elizabethan and Medieval, both of which have more research, but digging out little pieces of history was fantastic. It’s one of the reasons I started writing historicals in the first place!

The wish is made by a creature from Welsh legend called the Afanc, whose temper managed to get it in trouble in ancient times. He wants more than anything to see the woman he loved again, and makes a wish to the moon goddess Arianrhod. She agrees to grant his wish, but there’s a catch: he has to make the woman fall in love with him before Christmas.

I would love to hear your thoughts on it, so pick up a copy today while it’s still $0.99! After two weeks, the price will go up to $2.99 like the rest of my books – still a deal, but if you’re into Christmas romance you’ll want to get it today so you can buy more of them – including the ones written by my awesome friends! There are still 4 more books releasing after mine, all in different eras, and all with preorders under a dollar!

Coming Soon – A Christmas Reunion

img_4033-1On the banks of Llyn Ffynnon Las, a wish is made under the winter moon…

Carys Anwyl doesn’t much care for the man her father has arranged for her to marry, but as she is already twenty with no prospects she has little choice in the matter. She dreams of adventure and excitement, traveling a little further away from her village with each trip in the hopes she will one day get the courage to leave for good.

In the forest near Mount Snowden she meets Emrys, a young man who seems to have lost his memory, and she feels a connection with him like nothing she’s ever known. When he appears in her village a few days later, Carys’ dreams of leading her own life seem closer than ever. Unfortunately, her fiance has other plans, and as Emrys’ secrets slowly come to light she has to make a choice between love and duty that will change both of their lives for eternity.

Here’s some exciting news I’m finally able to share with you! Not only have I been lucky enough to be invited to write a book for one series this year, I’ve also got a second one coming out in November for the Christmas Wishes series!

This gorgeous cover was once again courtesy of the amazing Victoria Miller, and she’s outdone herself yet again. The back cover is going to look just as beautiful, and I’ll be revealing that at a later day.

Christmas Wishes is a series of six different holiday-themed stories from six different eras, all based on folklore or myth, and all starting with a wish. The books will be coming out starting in November with a Viking novel and ending in December in the Edwardian era. In a departure from my usual modern(ish) eras, this one takes place in the Tudor era! I’ve also never written a holiday-themed book either so I hope you enjoy it.

It’s been a lot of fun mapping this book out and I’m looking forward to sharing it with you on November 13th! Preorders are already underway and you can get mine for $0.99 and buy the whole set of six together! Here are all six beautiful covers, along with the full release schedule with handy links to everyone’s books:img_4050
