Greetings from San Francisco–it’s Free Book Friday!

San Francisco rocks

Hi, everyone. I’m in San Francisco for the annual Indie Uncon where published authors get together to share advice on what works, what doesn’t, what’s coming and what’s new. It’s a lot of fun, but also some mind-blowing a-ha moments–and a chance to reconnect with old friends.

But while I’m on BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) headed for my hotel, my newsletter is going out. In case you missed it, I have two announcements that might interest you, so I’ll share here, too.

 #1: It’s #freebookfriday

Free CURE

I love Roxanne’s delicious sense of humor. I know you’ll enjoy her characters and witty, delightful dialogue. And wait till you meet her lovely hero…be still my heart!

Chocolate Cure snippet 1

The Chocolate Cure (Love at the Chocolate Shop Book 4)

No more chocolate! No more meddling! No more men!

New Year’s resolutions are great. Announcing them in a crowded bar, with a chocolate martini in her hand? Not Maddie Cash’s finest moment. It’s time this new realtor got serious about her life and this time, she means it.

But when hospital volunteering lands her at the bedside of bruised and battered Mick Meyer, who has no knowledge of Maddie’s reputation – and no memory of the kiss he begged from her during that long, pain-filled night, her best-laid plans are put in jeopardy. It’s not just his sweet tooth that’s tempting her.

The hunky bush pilot with the concussion has an old family property to unload. Making this sale could rejuvenate Maddie’s dying career. But when Mick turns on the charm, she’s in danger of forgetting all her best intentions… on chocolate… on meddling… and especially on men.

The Inheritance Collection Book Eleven
WILD HEARTS OF SUMMER (Ocean City Boardwalk Book 3)

Cathy Whitley’s two best friends, Sara and Heather, may have found the men of their dreams… and that’s all well and good for them. But that’s not going to happen to Cathy. She allowed love to catch her off-guard once and it drained her dry, emotionally and financially. She’ll never let it happen again. Ever.

Brad Henderson has been chasing Cathy for years. He’s settled for their on-again-off-again, “friends with bennies” relationship for far longer than he expected. Attempting to swim through the rip currents surrounding her heart has left him weary.

 

Then Brad inherits a business worth millions from billionaire Harold Hopewell. Hopewell had traveled the world and was touched by the stories of the people he met. In death, Hopewell is giving back, leaving an unusual will filled with life-altering bequests. Brad can’t believe his stroke of luck. Now Cathy will surely see him in a new light. Right?

 

One way or the other, it’s time to draw a line in the sand…

Group mentality

I’m not here today.

Perhaps this will give you a clue to my location.

SF

Yep. I’m in San Francisco, with 60+ Indie authors taking part in an UnCon.

What is an Uncon, you ask?

Well, it’s not this: RWA

This is my first Uncon, so I can’t say for certain, but my hope is–and from what I heard attendees of previous Uncons say, it’s: practical, hands-on, in the trenches, tried and true, been-there-done-that information shared in an informal, organic group setting. No formal agenda–except for a couple of already-agreed upon industry speakers.

I’m excited and just a tiny bit nervous. I have some specific questions–mostly about how to save time on the PR side of this biz. And how to stay informed without spending three hours each morning reading emails/group posts.

But it’s not all work, of course. I’ll be hanging with my friends in San Francisco, for the weekend. How cool is that? Maybe, if we have time, I’ll take them to one of my favorite spots. We can meditate on our future success as we walk the labyrinth at Grace Catherdral. http://www.gracecathedral.org/visit/labyrinth/

I hope you have a lovely weekend. If the weather is still awful in your part of the world, I hope you can hunker down and curl up with a good book. I’d be happy to recommend my latest, which was released on Monday.
