News and Contest Info

Congrats to the six winners of last month’s book contest. I’ve contacted the winners so they should be receiving their books in 2 to 4 weeks.  

There will be 3 new book contests this month which means at least 9 people have a chance to win. The announcement of those three books will be posted on the blog later this week. Also, you can increase your chances of winning by commenting on blog posts throughout the month.

Thanks to those of you who purchased the eBook – A Forever Love. Thanks to you, I was able to make my first donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Hopefully, I will be able to make a contribution every month. The second eBook Love UnExpected will be released at the end of September and half of its proceeds will also be going to St Jude’s.

I’ve mentioned it before, but it’s official, Delilah will be out on January 1, 2011. Book stores are taking pre-sales now. If you are a reviewer and would like to read an advance review copy, please email me directly for more information. If you’re a book club, please consider making Delilah a choice as a future Book of the Month.

More about Delilah: 

Behind every successful man is a good woman. The downfall of a good man is a woman up to no good.

Thirty-year-old Samson Judges is a prominent pastor of the Peaceful Rest Missionary Baptist Church in Shreveport, Louisiana. His church owns land that real estate mogul William Trusts wants. When Samson refuses to sell, William hires Delilah Baker to find out Samson’s Achilles heel.

Money isn’t Delilah’s only motivation for taking the assignment. After watching Samson every Sunday morning on a local television station, Delilah has fallen in love with him. In her mind, there is only one person standing in her way of getting Samson—his fiancée, Julia Rivers.
Samson is far from innocent. He feels his longstanding relationship with God puts him above reproach. His weakness for one woman, Delilah, threatens to ruin his relationship with Julia, his parents, and his church. When he realizes the length Delilah will go through to get her man, Samson vows to protect his ministry by any means necessary.

If you’ve gone to the online stores, you may have seen a future release of mine posted. After Delilah, my next paperback novel will be Savannah’s Curse (March 2011). It’s a romantic suspense novel. I’ll post more information about the book next month.

I’m an avid reader so when I’m trying to unwind, here are some books I’ve read. I posted the link before, but just in case you missed what I’ve been reading, go to: If you’ve read any of those books, leave a comment because I love to discuss books.
