Ring Out the Old - to bring in the new year at 0.99
« on: December 25, 2012, 07:44:09 am »
Ring Out the Old is the first in my new series, Twelve Months of Romance. This novella is January themed.



So far, Jen Prescott has been able to manage her life, balancing three kids, a job and chronic illness. Midnight trips to the emergency room are nothing new, but this time, its one of her daughters who is ill. If ever she needed her husband, its now. But David has had enough of sickness and announced his intention to move as far away as he can get.

Jen must start over somehow; finding a new home, finding the strength to build a new life for her children. The bungalow behind Billy Eastons house seems like a good beginning, but Jen has no idea that Billy is hiding his own pain or that her arrival will force him to face that pain.

February's book, My Lonely Heart, is a short story and is scheduled for release on January 20.

    Gertie---

    Welcome again to the Book Bazaar and congratulations on your new book! Love the cover!

    KindleBoards is a Kindle fan and reader forum.  As you browse KindleBoards, keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed in the Book Bazaar. (You've posted your book thread in the right place; this is just our standard welcome that we place in all book threads. :)

    A brief recap of our rules follows:

    --Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information.  You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice). 

    --We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

    --While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days.  Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then. You may modify the latest post to reflect new information.

    --We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link.  Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

    --Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows.  This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post.  For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread: Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

    The January themed book is free today and tomorrow.



    So far, Jen Prescott has been able to manage her life, balancing three kids, a job and chronic illness. Midnight trips to the emergency room are nothing new, but this time, its one of her daughters who is ill. If ever she needed her husband, its now. But David has had enough of sickness and announced his intention to move as far away as he can get.

    Jen must start over somehow; finding a new home, finding the strength to build a new life for her children. The bungalow behind Billy Eastons house seems like a good beginning, but Jen has no idea that Billy is hiding his own pain or that her arrival will force him to face that pain.

    So that I can introduce the February themed short story.



    Its Valentines Day and Holly is alone again. Darren is away on business as usual and Holly doesnt know how shes going to get through the day. But with some sage advice from the rehab centers favorite patient, 85 year-old Mary, Holly just might find a way to save her marriage.

    Since the first title is free and the second only 99 cents, why not treat yourself to both?

    The March title will be released in the next 30 days.

    March Madness is not just for the Irish.




    Its St. Patricks Day, the one day of the year when everyone wants to be Irish. Even Angie Sorelli. But what Angie really wants is to meet her new neighbor, red-haired Irishman Brian OMalley. Too bad Brians best friend, darkly handsome Tommy Roventi, sees Angie first.

    And it's raining men in April Showers coming soon.

    Sure and begorrah, you got the St. Paddy right instead of the usual St. Patty. St. Patty would be a saint of the female persuasion, doncha-know.

    Are these the new covers?  Didn't you say something on another forum about new covers?

    I really like them!  They are sexy and colorful and they POP.  Really great.  I was hoping you'd say they were the new ones because if they were the OLD ones and you were getting rid of them that would be a shame. They're great covers!

    Thanks, Maria. Covers can be so subjective. It's good to have another opinion.

    I don't dislike them, but I prefer the old ones. To me the women in the picture frames seems more consistent with the style your previous covers.

    That's true, but this is a separate series and I wanted to distinguish it. The other ones were definitely prettier with the coordinating color frames around the photos.

    I won't ignore you because your opinion means a lot to me, but I will keep the new covers.  ;)

    Now I have to think of a thematic design for the new series. Fortunately, I have a lot of time for that. I'm only on the fourth book with eight more to go.
