Blue Hollow Falls cover

BIG NEWS!

I’m ramping up the buzz meter for my brand new BLUE HOLLOW FALLS series by putting together a new, bigger than ever Advance Reader Review Team!! YAY!!!

Book 1, also titled BLUE HOLLOW FALLS, hits the stands on June 27th, so it’s time to get this party started!!

Here’s the deal: I’m looking for readers who have enjoyed my previous releases and are interested in getting an advance *digital* copy of ALL of the books in the series as they are released.  (Please note: because the time frame is lengthy, with books continuing to be released in future months/years/etc, you can opt out anytime, no questions asked.)

Your only obligation will be to post a review online at any of the major bookseller sites or book blogs. (More info on that will go out in the first email to the team.) Doesn’t have to be an involved recap. A one liner is fine. Whatever moves you!

AND? All team members get cool TEAM BLUE HOLLOW FALLS swag!! I know!!

Interested?

Drop me an email to donna@donnakauffman.com with “TEAM BLUE HOLLOW FALLS!” in the subject line.

On Friday, May 19th, I’ll send out an email to the new TEAM with all the pertinent details.

(Please note: **The digital downloads will work with any device. No hardcopies.)

HERE WE GO!! :) :)

We have a WINNER!

Thank you, thank you to everyone who entered my Website Refresh GIVEAWAY!  I appreciate all your kind comments on the fresh new look (if only personal facelifts were so easy!) and on my books, NCIS recaps for USA Today, and all the other lovely things you have to say.  You’re wonderful and I appreciate every single one of you!

Without further ado, the winner of a signed advance copy of my upcoming June 27th release is…Claudia Ceppaluni!  Claudia, send me your mailing address to donna@donnakauffman.com and I’ll get your book out in the mail to you!

For all of you not-Claudia’s, don’t despair!  There is still one day left to enter my GIVEAWAY over at my USA Today play-by-play recap of last week’s NCIS episode.  Scroll down, the entry details are at the end of the recap.  The winner will be announced Wednesday morning, in my recap of this week’s May 9th episode.  (AND….another giveaway to enter then, too!)

In the meantime, here’s a little sneak peek at the pretty cover of Blue Hollow Falls.  Didn’t they do a fabulous job?  Scroll down to see the back cover copy and a link to where you can read an excerpt.  And some handy pre-order links, in case you want to make sure you get it the very instant it goes on sale.  (Because you’re awesome like that!)

Blue Hollow Falls cover

 

Here’s the back cover copy:

From her free-spirited mother, Sunny Goodwin learned the value of peace, love, and Jerry Garcia. The inheritance from the father she never knew? That’s a little more complicated . . .

 Sunny never expected to find herself owning a centuries old silk mill in the shadow of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains . . . or becoming a half-sister to a ten-year-old named Bailey. Once the shock subsides, she plans to cash in and head back home. But the overgrown greenhouse she finds on the property calls out to the gardener in her, and she senses Bailey’s need for nurturing too . . .

And someone else is making it hard for Sunny to leave: Sawyer Hartwell, an Iraq War hero who wants to make the old mill a creative hub for the artisans of Blue Hollow Falls . . . and wants Sunny to share his vision, and his life. But sexy as this ex-soldier may be, she’s not sure she’s ready to give love a chance . . .

 

And if you didn’t get the chance to read the sneak peek excerpt, you can still check out the USA Today article and give it a gander right here.

And here’s those pre-order links I was telling you about…I’m so handy like that!

Website Refresh & Giveaway!!

(Edited to add:  We have a WINNER!  Click here to see if it’s you!)

It’s springtime, that time of year when you feel suddenly compelled to empty out your junk drawers to make way for this year’s junk, sort through all your magazines and finally admit there are some you will simply never read, clean out your closets and get rid of clothes that you really never will wear again, and generally declutter your environment…

Okay, okay, so maybe I feel compelled to do those things, but…never really get around to doing them. But I think about doing it!

What I did do was freshen up my website! (Okay, full disclosure, I had my lovely website guru Holly from Dreamforge freshen it up, but still, I delegated. What’s important here is that I’m getting better at achieving my end goals! If only I had someone to delegate the whole declutter my house thing…darn those kids for growing up and moving out on their own…)

So, I wanted to share the new and improved site and thought it would be fun to combine the whole celebration with a book giveaway! (Not exactly decluttering, but still…less books in my house, so I’m chalking it up as a win!)

Blue Hollow Falls cover

You may have heard, but coming June 27th, my brand new release, BLUE HOLLOW FALLS, will be hitting the stands, launching a new series set in the lovely Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, which also happens to be my home.

Want a chance to win a copy before it hits the stands? I thought you might! So here’s the part where you get to check out my website refresh and play a little scavenger hunt. Find out which book on my website bookshelf doesn’t have the cover art up yet. Then send me an email to donna@donnakauffman.com telling me the title of that book, and you’re in!

Winners will be announced here on my blog next Monday, May 8th. Don’t forget to check back to see if you’re one of them! (Links to the winners blog post will be posted on my FB page and Twitter as well, in case you need a reminder!)

Or you could sign up to get notices of all of my (admittedly infrequent) blog posts by clicking that little orange button (with the white lines in it) under my photo in the top right corner of this page.

Of course, if you want to make sure you get a copy, I have some order-it-right-this-very-second links right here. Because I’m so handy like that!
