Shameless Promotion

Buy my book! Please!

How shameless is that? I apologize for the outburst, but I'm still bouncing around from excitement. I've just received the release date for my very first published book. The Wild Rose Press will release Lady of the Stars, my Regency time travel novella, on January 7, 2009.

My Christmas present, a little late. But not if you use the Julian calendar, because January 7 using our Gregorian calendar is December 25 on the Julian calendar. Here's the calendar conversion link:

So, I really do receive my Christmas present on Christmas. Just depends on what calendar you use.

Now for some more shameless promotion--here's the Lady of the Stars blurb:

Caroline knows something is wrong the instant she steps into that unusual gazebo with two doors. But when a man she never thought to see again appears outside, she flings caution aside and plunges through the back door, crashing into an unknown man--and 1817.

A voyage through time? Impossible. Richard refuses to believe the strange woman's outlandish tale. Still, the lady is lost and alone, and he helps the stranded wayfarer.

But as attraction flares between these two lonely people, Richard's family legend grinds to its ultimate fulfillment--will it bring them together, or tear them apart forever?

And while we're talking promotion, on Wednesday August 27 from 5-6 PM EDT, I will be in Coffeetime Romance's Latte Lounge. I will post an excerpt, answer questions, and have a contest. Come and join me, especially since I have a whole hour, which I didn't expect, and I have to fill it up somehow.

How's that for shameless promotion?

Thank you all,

Linda, I really like you new template for the blog. And I'm sorry I missed you over at coffee time on the 27th. Yes! Do promote! but don't forget to plug the publisher who is publishing you book at the same time! Send people there to prepare them. Anyway, sorry again for missing the party. I would have enjoyed being there.

Kaye, you're right. I edited the post to put The Wild Rose Press into it.

Sorry you couldn't come, but if you take the link on the sidebar, you can read the posts.

Hi Linda, I'll go and read the posts. I bet it was fun!

Starquest launched today at Wild Rose. It's a Sci-fi romance. (not mine yet) But I am trying to support other authors. And of course, I do write a bit of sci-fi myself! (I'll do the same for you when your launch date comes if you'd like) So go visit my blog and leave a comment. Then you can link to Christina's blog for an interview with the author. Thanks, Kaye
