Workin’ the New York BookExpo…but first, we party!

I’m so excited to meet readers, sign books, and speak on a panel at this weekend’s big BookCon event at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC.

But that fun starts tomorrow, June 2nd and continues on into Sunday, June 3rd.

First come the parties!

See my last blog post for the Amazon shindig lowdown.

Last night it was my publisher, Kensington Publishing, who put on the Pitz at the Ascent Lounge in the TimeWarner building.

I had a lovely lunch earlier in the day with my editor, Alicia Condon, then we mingled again that evening. I had to go look it up and count, but we’ve partnered on 16 titles in our 7 1/2 years together. And we haven’t aged a day! (Hey, I heard that!)


I also had the chance to hang out with my fellow Fiction From the Heart author pal, KM Jackson, who is every bit as delightful as that big, beautiful smile suggests.

We met up with fabulous Aya de Leon, who will also be speaking on the “Romance & Resistance” panel this Sunday with Kwana and I at BookCon. It’s possible that discussion got started last night!

I hope you can join us Sunday for what promises to be a very lively chat with these two fine ladies, and our other panel-mates, Sarah MacLean and Roni Loren. The panel discussion will be moderated by New York Times Book Review Editor, Tina Jordan. Come and see us!

Here’s the link to yesterday’s blog post with all the info on the weekend festivities: Booksignings & Panel Chat

More fun to come! 🙂

It’s almost here!

It’s almost here!

First, I want to send a BIG thank you to EVERYONE for your wonderful comments, reviews, posts, and emails about the launch book for my brand new series, BLUE HOLLOW FALLS. You have made this such a special journey already.

This new adventure is set in my home area, the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of western Virginia, so it’s very close to my heart. I’m thrilled it’s already finding it’s way into yours.

And now, I’m excited to share the I’ll be releasing a holiday e-novella, THE INN AT BLUE HOLLOW FALLS, on October 31st (think of it as Blue Hollow Falls 1.5!) I hope you’ll give it a try.

If you haven’t picked up a copy of the first book in the series, you can read more about it right HERE.  (There’s even handy links to pick up a copy – because I’m so handy like that. 🙂 )

For more on the brand-new holiday e-novella, THE INN AT BLUE HOLLOW FALLS, read on…


Inn at Blue Hollow Falls full size

“Kauffman’s characters are adorably human and so very magnetic.”

Stevie Franklin is ready to go all-out Grinch on Christmas this year, but a snowy trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains could provide some unexpected gifts…

Stevie is thrilled to help her best friend Sunny launch her new greenhouse business in Blue Hollow Falls. Not only does it give her a chance to visit the quaint location, but it’s a welcome distraction from Stevie’s recent bad luck with men. Just one catch: since Sunny’s home is under renovation, Stevie must stay at the local inn, whose amenities feature hunky innkeeper, Noah Tyler.

Noah may be as tempting as her grandmother’s famous sweet potato pie, but city-girl Stevie isn’t sticking around—and she doesn’t do flings. Yet when Noah’s chef gets stranded in a Christmas Eve snowstorm, Stevie can’t resist pitching in and serving up some of her family’s favorite recipes. The magic of a Blue Ridge Christmas is already rekindling Stevie’s holiday spirit and making her wonder what else she might be missing out on. Now can Noah restore Stevie’s belief in love?

Includes original down-home holiday recipes!
