Amazon Did What?

I thought we’d hit Peak Excitement this week here in Casa de Kauffman. I was WRONG! (And I’ve never been so happy about that!)

So, THIS happened this morning. (WHAT!?!)

It’s true! Amazon has named BLUESTONE & VINE as a Best Book of the Month!!  (And check out the fabulous company I’m in! #gobsmacked!)

I’m still dancing it out all over my living room. (You did NOT see that Dick Van Dyke flip over the ottoman. Once again, I am thankful my life is not being filmed as a reality show.)

REDUCED PRICES!!

Also take a look at those prices in that snapshot up there! Both the print copy AND the e-book are at a reduced price so HURRY over to Amazon and snatch your copy up if you haven’t already done so!

BUT WAIT!! 

While you’re there, SEA GLASS SUNRISE (Book #1 in the Brides of Blueberry Cove)  is a Kindle deal for just $1.99!! I know! 

If you haven’t already gobbled them up, dive into my Blueberry Cove series this summer. They are the perfect beach read (set on the coast of Maine. Ahhhh….)

Then KEEP YOUR RECEIPT and come right on back over here and enter the BIG BOOK BIRTHDAY BASH Giveaway! See below for the info and link to enter!

BIG BOOK BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY! 

If you’ve picked up a copy of Bluestone & Vine hold on to your receipt (or take a screen shot of your online order – just show the book title and you’re good to go!) and you can enter to win!

Okay, back to dancing it out! Join me, won’t you? (Watch out for that ottoman!)

Happy Book Birthday GIVEAWAY Party!

It’s my Big Book Birthday and I’m giving YOU all the presents!

I’m beyond thrilled that BLUESTONE & VINE has been released into the wild and is now available everywhere! (Haven’t snagged yours yet? Scroll down for handy purchase links!)

I’ve written one or a couple of books in the 26 years I’ve been a published author and it only gets MORE exciting with each release. This new series is set right where I live, here in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, and because of that, each one of these stories is a little extra special to me.

This is only the second full-length book in this series, after BLUE HOLLOW FALLS, and the holiday e-novella, THE INN AT BLUE HOLLOW FALLS and already your enthusiasm for this series has made it my most successful yet. I was over the moon when THE INN AT BLUE HOLLOW FALLS actually found it’s way onto the Wall Street Journal list — a first for me! – and I have you all to thank for that.

And we’ve just gotten started!

So I knew I wanted to do a Very Special Giveaway to thank you all for your enthusiasm for this series. Read on for all the details!

Choose Your Prize Titles: Browse through my Bookshelf and decide which FIVE titles you’d like to receive if you’re chosen the winner. Yep, ANY book of mine that has already been released is up for grabs. Keep them all for you, share your loot with friends, it’s all up to you!

Seven Days of Seth: Day Six!

We’re all the way to Day Six!

In BLUESTONE & VINE (and the series as a whole) Seth Brogan has been an outgoing, flirtatious, confident man. Then he meets Pippa MacMillan, and suddenly, for the first time, he finds himself in that vulnerable situation of caring about someone so deeply, and realizing they have the power to hurt you. And you have to decide, is it better to protect your heart, or risk having it shattered?

 

Just a few more days and you can find out exactly how Seth handles this predicament…

Want to make sure you have it in your hot little hands the moment it comes out? You can pre-order a copy using the handy links below:
