Sia McKye has invited me to be a guest author featured on Sia McKye Over Coffee on Wednesday, March 21. Sia’s blog features articles and author interviews that focus on the author experience. I answered a few of Sia’s questions, which will appear in the article, and I will be available on-and-off during the day to answer questions from readers. Hope to see you there—over coffee, of course.
Forty-nine has been my favorite number since my brother began calling me 49. The reason? I was an awkward, skinny kid and weighed only 49 pounds for a ridiculously long time. For years, my big brother told anyone who would listen that I weighed only 49 pounds—long after I’d passed that threshold. He thought it was hilarious; I was mortified. With time, the number name became one of affection. I still sign my letters to him with a 49.
This weekend, 49,000 became my new favorite number—though I don’t think I’ll adopt it as my new name. In just five days, over 49,000 people downloaded my novel Shades of Gray, bumping it to Number One on the Amazon Best Sellers in free Kindle ebooks and Number One in paid Romantic Suspense ebooks.
Happy International Women’s Day! Hope it is a great day for women everywhere.
Like most of the world, I received virtual flowers on my Google page today. I wanted to join in the celebration, so I decided to offer my book for free on Kindle this weekend. Why should women have only one day of celebration?
So from March 9th through 13th, you and all your friends can read Shades of Gray for free on Kindle.
Enjoy! And check the thumbs up button on Amazon if you like it.
Stone Mountain Book Clubs
I was honored last month when two Stone Mountain, Georgia, book clubs combined their January meeting and invited me to discuss my novel, Shades of Gray. Hosted by Kathy Rhinehart in her beautiful Stone Mountain home, the evening was filled with wine, discussions, and wonderful feedback. One of the attendants, Debbie Weiss, featured Shades of Gray in her Women’s Book Review website—a great website to discover new books. Click here to check it out.
Book Signing at Charlie Mack Salon
I recently discovered Charlie Mack Salon in the heart of Lexington, South Carolina. Not only is it a great place for hair care, the salon frequently opens its doors after hours for a Girls’ Night Out. The special nights feature events just for women. In February, I was invited to attend one of these wonderful evenings and sign copies of my novel Shades of Gray. I had a wonderful time meeting everyone that night and hope they have enjoyed their books. You should check out their beauty secrets the next Girls’ Night Out.
