Dangerous Currents is a Reading Review Wars pick~ Read along this #MemorialDayWeekend! #books


Love seeing my cover next to some very well-known Cape Cod authors! I'm over the moon that my new Romantic Suspense release, Dangerous Currents , has been picked to be reviewed at Reading Review Wars , a site that offers His and Hers viewpoints in dual reviews of the same book!  Want to join the conversation and see which review matches up with your feelings on the plot, world building, and overall writing style?  The "War" goes live on June 11, so you have plenty of time to read it...in fact, the first three editorial reviews that have come in have called it a pretty quick read:  "The suspense of who-done-it leaves you on the edge of your seat." ( Forget the Housework, I'm Reading )   "I fo...

Fiction Writing + Publication Course #Hyannis! #CapeCod #amwriting


I'm thrilled to be teaching a new  "Fiction Writing and Publication"  course this June, back at Hyannis Center on Main Street in Hyannis.  For the last five years, I've taught this popular class for both Cape Cod Community College's Center for Corporate and Professional Education and for the Town of Falmouth's Community School in a number of locations, and I've met so many aspiring authors and hopefully helped them on their writing journey.  I've even read some of their finished manuscripts and visited their writing groups, which has been so rewarding.  If you're interested in writing a novel, or exploring publishing options, and you're in the Cape Cod area, consider joining us!  The press r...

Bingo, #Books, + Shopping! #Falmouth #MothersDay Cape Cod


It's been a whirlwind week ~ a new book release , an author interview in USA Today's Romance Blog , and a charity event this Wednesday, May 9th.  I'll be signing and selling my novels at a  Bingo Night and Holiday Shopping Event .   This is always a good time!  The suggested donation is $20 for 20 games (proceeds from both game cards and vendor table fees go to two Relay For Life teams for the American Cancer Society, which is a charity close to my heart, as I've lost both parents to this horrible disease).  Wear pink or purple for a bonus card!).

Pre-orders are up! Steamy Second-Chance #Romance + Suspense ~ New Release #Books


My fifth novel,  Dangerous Currents , is almost here!  Pre-orders are live for all formats except print, and if you order now, it will hit your Kindle/Nook/iPad on Thursday!  Dangerous Currents is a second-chance romance with plenty of suspense, but no ghosts--a bit of a departure from my other novels that involve some paranormal elements.  This release date is especially meaningful to me, because I struggled with writer's block for a while after my father was diagnosed with cancer and passed away five months later in April of 2017 .  I desperately wanted to finish Malorie and Dean's story, but the emotional turmoil made it impossible to write even a single sentence for months.  So to have t...

Steamy Romance + Haunting Mystery on #Audible! New audio #book #ghosts Cape Cod


My second audio book has just released!  Haunted Souls is now available as an audio book, on Audible and iTunes !  I'm so excited, as audio books are becoming increasingly popular.  They have certainly become a big part of how I find more time to "read" --   I am now addicted to listening to audio books, and I'm a member of Audible, which gives me a credit a month to download a new audio book for a low monthly fee.  Even so, I'm now so used to listening to books while I'm driving or doing chores, I often have to take advantage of the extra credit sales.  If you've never tried an audio book, you can get your first one for FREE!  And it downloads easily right to your phone.   A few of my favor...

New Fiction Writing Class in #Falmouth! #amwriting Cape Cod


I'm thrilled to be teaching a new  "Fiction Writing and Publication"  course this spring, back at the Lawrence School in Falmouth.  For the last few years, I've taught this popular class for both Cape Cod Community College's Center for Corporate and Professional Education and for the Town of Falmouth's Community School in a number of locations, and I've met so many aspiring authors and hopefully helped them on their writing journey.  I've even read some of their finished manuscripts and visited their writing groups, which has been so rewarding.  If you're interested in writing a novel, or exploring publishing options, and you're in the Cape Cod area, consider joining us!  The press release i...

Cover Reveal! Dangerous Currents #book #coverreveal #RomanticSuspense


Who doesn't love a cover reveal?  Seeing the artistic creation that will be the "face" of months (in this case, years) of hard work is an unbelievable feeling!  Unless the author isn't happy with the cover, something that has certainly happened to a few of my author friends, and it's devastating.  Thankfully, I've really loved all of mine, and this one is no exception.  My fifth novel, Dangerous Currents , is a second-chance romance with plenty of suspense, although not what most people think of when they think of the genre "Romantic Suspense", which is why I'm going to try to clarify.  It's pretty much the same thing I've been going through with most of my other novels for years-- Silver La...

From #Book to Audio - the Process, + a New Release! #Audible #amwriting #writingtips


Much of this post originally appeared as my guest post on Jennifer Wilck's blog , and I'm sharing it here because my second audiobook is coming soon!  I've learned a lot about the process of turning a novel into an audiobook, and I'm so excited to have another on the way.  My first, Gull Harbor , released on Valentine's Day (what a release date!), and I love how it turned out.  Since this steamy romance + ghost mystery first came out in print, it's been both a #1 Bestseller on Kindle and Nook platforms on several occasions, so I'm thrilled it is now available on Audible and iTunes for readers who love to listen (which is now something I do constantly--such a great way to get another story "r...

The #Book That Made Me Love #Paranormal #Romance ~ #amwriting #ghosts


This is a re-post of my contribution to the latest blog series over at Moonlight & Mystery, a site for all types of mystery, romance, and paranormal reads.  The theme revolves around looking back at a book from our youth that inspired us in some way—a novel that maybe made us fall in love with reading, drew us to a new genre, sparked our imagination, or inspired us to write our own stories someday. I love ghost stories, which is probably pretty clear from my novels…and while I do try to elicit a few shivers up my readers’ spines, the hauntings in my novels are more mysteries than horror.   My plots revolve around a ghost who has some unfinished business that the characters need to unravel be...

"Dragged me in on Page One" #Book #Review! #Ghosts #Romance #amreading


Reviews are tough to get in this competitive market, so I am thrilled that Haunted Souls has been featured recently on two review blogs, along with fabulous reviews!  I am also gearing up for this steamy romance + ghost mystery to be released as an audiobook soon - stay tuned for details on that!  (If you like audiobooks, Gull Harbor is available on Audible already, narrated by the fabulous KJ the Voice Actor!) A few other great quotes from reviews of Haunted Souls! My publisher made Haunted Souls available on NetGalley in February, and it was picked up and reviewed on T's Stuff ...favorite line: "This book dragged me in on page one and didn't let go until the final period on the last page"....

Why #Easter Moves Around Each Year ~ Finding the Date


It doesn't quite feel like spring yet here on Cape Cod, but Easter is almost here--a bit early this year.  Why does the date move around each year?  I'm pulling out my previous post on calculating Easter's date...but a little background first:  when my children were younger, I taught Sunday School (a passage from the Book of Genesis actually inspired one of my novels...Divine Fall is the story of the only surviving Nephilim--the offspring of heavenly angels and human women who roamed the earth before the Great Flood)  As a Sunday School teacher, I was asked unusual questions, which I didn't always have the answer to.  Kids are unbelievably insightful sometimes.  Why, they wondered, was Chris...

I'm helping sponsor THREE giveaways right now, two of which are offering multiple prizes!  As an author, visibility is key...especially in this incredibly crowded market.  A reader can't consider trying one of my books if he or she doesn't know it exists, so giveaways help bring exposure, plus entries often involve following an author or signing up for a newsletter.  Easy ways to learn about new reads, plus, you could win a lot of stuff!

"Heart-pounding tension" ~ #Audible #Review #ghosts #romance


I'm so excited to be entering the growing audio book market, with my first audiobook releasing a few weeks ago.  Gull Harbor has been a #1 Amazon and Barnes & Noble Bestseller on several occasions, and I'm thrilled this second-chance romance + ghost mystery is now available on Audible and iTunes now, narrated by the very talented Kristin James.  The reviews are just starting to come in, and I'm sharing a few lines from a fabulous one from Tome Tender.  A little teaser.... "For Claire, winning a ghost's trust and helping it move on is part of her gift, having to face the man who shattered her heart is her curse."  What a delicious tag line!  I love it. "The secrets buried in Gull Harbor by Ka...

History of #StPatricksDay + a #Giveaway! Win a #Kindle!


Happy St. Patrick's Day!  This year, St. Patrick's Day is taking on a little more meaning, because I recently got my DNA results back from 23andMe (an awesome birthday gift from my hubby) and I discovered I have a lot more Irish blood in me than I thought!  I did know I had a Sullivan on my father's side of the family a few generations back, but the results say I'm 61% British and Irish.  I've always enjoyed taking part in the holiday fun--wearing green, drinking beer, and serving a traditional Irish meal. You'll notice I said "serving", not "cooking"...cooking is not one of my strengths; however, writing is.  So rather than offering a recipe, I'm dedicating this blog post to some facts abou...
