March Madness Treasure Hunt


untitledIt’s that time of year, you know what time I mean…March, the month when husbands disappear for days on end as sixty-four college  basketball teams fight their way toward the Championship.  If you are not a basketball fan, or have a minimal tolerance for nacho platters and loud screaming, then click on continue reading and follow me… Now let’s go! I’m off on a spectacular treasure hunt that will be revealing what’s new and what’s going to be new this spring, not just with my books, but with some of the best new authors in women’s fiction.


My map has challenged me to find 300 readers who enjoy heartwarming stories, women who want to be first to know about good books, and love getting the inside scoop on stuff nobody else knows. Oh, and did I mention these women also want to be first in line for free books, ARC copies and contest news. According to my map, there is only one way to get there and that’s to sign up as one of my e-mail subscribers… CLICK HERE to join the treasure hunt and subscribe to my monthly newsletter..

Once you add your name to this special list of friends and fans, you’re automatically entered in a new drawing every day this month.  How’s that? Easy and fun!


You betcha! Every day that more than ten subscribers sign up to receive the Newsletter, there will be a drawing for a daily prize. I’ll be giving away great books and lots other prizes too. Every day a different prize. Every day a different winner. These prizes will include books by…

And of course, there will be some of my own books including Spare Change, The Twelfth Child, Cracks in the Sidewalk, and Cupid’s Christmas

Prizes will be a mix of paperback and e-books, other prizes include surprise packs of fun stuff.


Of course. From now through March 31st, I’ll be giving sneak-peeks at the new books for spring – nope not just my books, but books for all of these authors. For instance…Steena Holmes will have a follow-up to her blockbusting novel “Finding Emma” – Patricia Sands will be whisking us off to France for a wonderful love story, and Christine Nolfi has not one, but TWO surprise offerings. As for me, well I could say that if you like Ethan Allen (Spare Change) the first time…stick around, because he’s up to his old tricks. Poor Olivia.


Nope. Call me lazy if you want, but the Newsletter only goes out once  a month, and sometimes it’s every other month. But when there’s a fun contest, or big news about a new book, you’ll find a copy of my newsletter in your e-mail box.


Help me to make this happen because if I get 300 new subscribers by the  1st of April, there will be a Bonus Prize drawing…and that’s no fooling!

Please note: Paperback books are only available for winners in the US and Canada, International winners will receive e-book copies.

    Bette, I’ll skip the nachos and choose instead to read Cracks in the Sidewalk. The boys can have their sports programming–I choose a great read!

    Many thanks for adding Second Chance Grill to the treasure hunt. xo

    I’d love to get in on this. Loved Spare Change. Read it on my Kindle and couldn’t put it down.
