Happy July! I have lots of great news for my paperback readers.
First--A BOGO sale (Buy one, get one free!) Woo Hoo! It's Christmas in July! I'll sign them to anyone you want. Christmas shopping, done!
*May I suggest the following pairs...
My two anthologies each contain 3 novellas. So, you get 6 novellas for the price of one novel! (10.99 USD and you get free shipping if I can send them to a USA address!)  
Or my two cowritten books with the fabulously talented Dalton Diaz! (One is $11.99 and the other is $9.99, so we'll spit the difference and make them $10.99 too!)
Or, the two brand new releases! Book 1 and its sequel are coming out together, so you don't have to wait! Just $10.99 for both!
 Now, if you're not into paperbacks, but really prefer ebooks, of course the new releases are available in eformats too. Only $2.99! Find links to all online stores here: and here: other news: I'm working hard to make the second annual Fall in Love with New England Reader/Author conference even more spectacular than last year!

May news

I'm a day late, because I just came back from my dream vacation (a 2 week Mediterranean cruise) and had piles of laundry, plus grocery shopping to do. I hit the sack last night exhausted, but still smiling.  :)

There is a new release coming in May... Just You and Me is a boxed set of 15 hot contemporary romances by award-winning and best selling authors for (are you ready?) 99 cents!

It won't come out until the end of the month, but you can pre-order it on Amazon now. Just You and Me, Contemporary-Romance-Collection

When it's released I will remind you in my newsletter--plus, as usual, I will hold a contest for two prizes (one of which I bought on my European cruise!) 
Please sign up for my newsletter on my home page and you won't miss the announcement! I only send a newsletter when I have a new release, and I won't clog your inbox. I promise!

Also, I'd like to remind readers to check out the Fall in Love with New England Romance Reader/Author Conference. We're taking registrations now. Don't wait, because space is limited!  It's the only conference for romance readers and authors in New England, and it takes place smack-dab in the middle of foliage season!

April News

April 4th is the big day here in Ashlynland.
Lots of new books for you!

From Decadent Publishing we have Guardian of the Angels. About a City man and a country woman, with a touch of magic.
It's already available for preorders here:

And then there are the rereleases...I rewrote and combined them into this one-author anthology called Thrill of the Chase. Now you can have three for the price of one! Win-win-win!
The three-book anthology is in Kindle Select (an exclusive three month offering) at the moment.
But you can still order either the Kindle ebook or paperback from Amazon when it's released in April. It will be available everywhere after its 3 month exclusive. 
Here's the universal link

So, is that all? No! Vampire Vintage is "going wide." Meaning, that it was in the same 3 month exclusive Kindle select program, and now it's time is up! So it will be available at B&N, Kobo, Apple iBooks, etc. 
It's confusing isn't it?
Here, I'll make it easy. Buy Guardian of the Angels ebook now.

If you have a Kindle ereader, you can pick up any or all my books from my Amazon page, here:

If you don't use a Kindle ereader, you can get paperbacks of Thrill of the Chase or Vampire Vintage from either Amazon or Createspace.

Do you use a nook? I love mine too. There are plenty of my books at Barnes and Noble.

However and wherever you buy your books, you'll find me there. Just put my name in the search bar.

March News

Hi there!
I'm posting early, because I won't be available on March 1st. I'll be on a Caribbean cruise!  Before you get all jealous, this is a working vacation. My agency is putting together this opportunity to network with editors, producers, agents, and fellow authors. I'm super excited!

I'll be pitching a couple of super cool ideas to the pros, and I'll be on a panel speaking about my path to publication. I just hope I can leave enough time for my fellow authors to speak. It was a long and winding road!

Just two other things I'd like to mention... The Fall in Love with New England Reader/Author conference is open for registration! A 2016 attendee said, "This is the most fun I've had all year!"

It's a terrific bargain anyway, but if you happen to attend The Romance Reviews 6th anniversary party, you could win a $30 reader discount! In other words, 2 days of workshops and activities, all your meals, socializing with 50 fantastic authors--and with $30 off the already ridiculously inexpensive cost of $89, it will only cost you $59. Yup. And with all the giveaways and prizes, you'll make that back and more. You can't afford to stay home! LOL

There's a link to the party right on my website's home page.

That's all the news I have for now. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter on my homepage while you're there. It's 100% opt-in. In other words, you won't be signed up for my newsletter unless you want to be!

February news

Happy Romance month!
I have so much going on this month! First, a deadline! (Ack!) Or as I call it, a dreadline. It's okay. I think I'm going to make it. I'm probably going to make it. Okay--I'll think positive, I am definitely going to make it! First in the new series, The Phoenix Brothers (Gabe) is almost done. This was a tough one. Remind me not to write a 'strong silent type' again for a while. Writing dialog for a guy like that is challenging! But as much work as he was, I wound up loving Gabe dearly. I hope you will too.

The other big thing happening this month is a Caribbean cruise with my agent and agency mates. They're inviting editors and producers, and I'll be pitching to one (or more) of them. Wish me luck!

I hope you enjoy the video I made to give you a peek into my latest release! Happy February!!

January News

Happy New year! Wow! What a month this is shaping up to be...
Mr. Amazing and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary 12/31 and 1/1. We got married exactly at midnight, so we celebrate both days. ;)

In book news...there's a lot! 
All my Ellora's Cave books are mine again. Meaning, I own the rights. The publisher went under, so I'll either have to sell them to another publisher or Indie publish them.
I still love those books and want to make them available to you! My agent is trying to sell one to a traditional publisher for me, and I've decided to Indie publish the rest.

Here's the plan: As of 1/3/17 two books will be available.
First...A bargain! 3 stories (previously sold individually) in one volume! Immortally Yours can be found anywhere you buy books for $2.99. Be sure to look for this pretty new cover. Paperbacks can be ordered here:
Descriptions and details are available wherever you buy your books.

And...the ever popular Vampire Vintage is with Kindle Select. (Meaning, you can only get the ebook version at Amazon for 3 months.) All other venues will have it in April, 2017.
Check out this adorable cover by the talented Amanda Walker!

Both books are available in print from Just click this link:  for Vampire Vintage and it will bring you right there!

In person booksigning Sunday, Jan 29th, 2 - 4 p.m.
65 James Street, Worcester, MA. 

And online: I'll be blogging at 1/23/17 
That's What I'm Talking About on 1/24/17 here: 

Well, between all that and the holidays, I'm waaay behind on my work in progress. Gotta go write, right now!
