And when I say “we”, I’m referring specifically to authors who write interracial romance, and this disheartens and angers me on a level you couldn’t possibly imagine (Maybe …
…with TWO exciting new sequels to Gee Whiz it’s Christmas.
Leonie Brooks will never forget the day she and her three sisters were put into “the system.” At twelve, she’d been the oldest, and used to being in control and responsible for them all. The day that control was snatched away was the day she promised herself that she’d send the world to hell before she’d ever let herself be put into a situation where it could be stolen away again.Sixteen years later Leonie is flying high and riding on a wave of success in the exclusive private equity firm she works for. She realizes she’d been lucky to have been placed in the foster home of the owners of The Meadowlark, one of the finest restaurants in Atlanta and will be forever grateful for having found another…

Hellboy #2 is going to be Julian Bond in the school’s Black History Month program. I thought this costume would be easy-peasy for once. Not so much. Finding little boy ties is like finding hen’s teeth. Astonishing this close to Easter. I found some at Macy’s but they were $15 a piece! Given a better than 80% likelihood that said tie would NOT make it home, I decided to make it myself. Not bad, I’d say, especially for a first attempt. It took all of 20 minutes and probably would’ve taken less if I’d had the right kind of elastic.
Guess you’ve heard by now that Lisa and I have a Christmas series this year. The first book, Gee Whiz, It’s Christmas, drops next week. But we announced this in our group and on our mailing lists last week, if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight tonight, you’ll get the ARC a week early absolutely free! (BTW, this is why it’s a good reason to get on the mailing list or join our Facebook group, Y’all Better Get You Some.) There are four more books in this series. And coming in the new year we have Acts of Wars and Love Me Some Him and who knows what else. There’s no telling what we’ll be giving away.
Is there a catch? Of course there’s a catch. You must post a review at Amazon on release day. Not the day after release day or a week later. ON RELEASE DAY. Reviews boost a book on Amazon and we need this book to hit big. If you don’t post your review on release day you’ll be ineligible for any future giveaways. Sorry to be a bitch, but this is VERY important. So get those emails to me. I’ll start sending ARCs tomorrow morning-ish.
I’m also having a drawing for those who sign up for my mailing list between now and release day for a free copy. We’re also participating in the 25 Days of Christmas giveaway being hosted by Alexandria Infante on Facebook. We’re giving away two copies of Gee Whiz, It’s Christmas and one copy each of Santa Baby and Lisa’s Christmas book, Dashing Through the Snow. (BTW, I’m not sure I told Lisa about that last bit, but seriously if you haven’t read Dashing, you’ve missed out. It’s one of her best. A cozy mystery with that champagne texture she’s so known for.)
