My latest book, Apart at the Seams, is being offered up for the next 24 hours as the Kindle Daily Deal. (Get it while it's only $1.99!)

My favorite source for finding books has been other bloggers but now bloggers themselves are tipping the tables. Bloggers are bringing romance to a bookshelf near you. ...more
