Getting into the Spirit of the Holidays

Hello, my little gingersnaps!

I'm super excited to share the fabulous cover for Merry & Bright, the upcoming holiday anthology from Simon & Fig, which includes a short story by yours truly. Isn't it lovely?

Sip your eggnog, linger under the mistletoe, and make a Christmas wish. Merry & Bright brings you six tales of Christmas cheer, featuring stories of budding romances, Southern charm, lost loves, heaps of humor, and lots of pie by authors Isabella Louise Anderson, Cindy Arora, Laura Chapman, Lauren Clark, Libby Mercer, and Nancy Scrofano. From sunny Los Angeles to the Rocky Mountains to the Deep South, Merry & Bright will take you on a heartwarming adventure you'll love to visit again and again. Wrap yourself in holiday mirth and prepare to be swept off your feet.

I had so much fun working on my story. It's called "Secret Santa" and it takes place in St. Louis, Missouri, the city I grew up in and this is the first time I've set one of my stories in my hometown. So I hope you'll "meet me in St. Louis" when the anthology is released in November. Pardon the cheesy reference. I just couldn't resist!

More details to come.

This Just In!

Hello, my little bookworms!

Lying to Meet You has flown the nest and is now out there for public consumption. The whole thing was a bit nerve-wracking since it's the first book under my real name and all. I'm happy to report that the feedback has been fabulous. So far. A little afraid of jinxing myself! I'll just paste some highlights from the reviews and let them speak for themselves. But first, here's another look at the cover:

And now for a few tasty tidbits from my reviewers with links to their posts:

Okay, I'd better stop now before I get too carried away! But I'm beyond happy that Lying to Meet You is being warmly received, and I had to share.

Just Four Days to Go!

Hello, my little Swarovski crystals!

Things are a bit manic at HQ, of course, getting all these last-minute things together before publication next week. I wanted to pop in here to share something I'm super excited about though. Kelli, the illustrious review blogger from I'd So Rather Be Reading, has chosen Lying to Meet You as her Book of the Month read for August! I am absolutely over the moon here. What an honor!! Check out the post here.

I'd get back to work. Just wanted to share my fabulous news!
