A win and a much needed ego boost!

So, last week I reported that I had 3 book in the finals of the N.N. Light’s Book Heaven Book of the Year awards and today I am beyond pleased to announce MISTLETOE, MOBSTERS, & MOZZARELLA WON it’s category – Holiday Romance!!! Since this is a holiday themed RomCom and Christmas is 2 days way, this just felt extra special!

In a time when all around us looks dark and scary, reading something lighthearted is one way to cope with the depression and fear that is inherent in this pandemic. If you need a little comedic uptick, or are just looking for light reading to take you away for a few hours, I hope you will consider purchasing this book for yourself – or even as a holiday gift for someone else who might need a good laugh to get through a bad day.

And now I’m off to bask in this ego boost!!!

Until next time, peeps ~ Peg

NN Light 2020 Book Awards finalists – a thruple for me!

Every year, one of my favorite promoters/reviewers/book lovers, N.N. Light ( a husband and wife dynamic duo!) rate the best books they’ve read and reviewed over the previous year and all the books that have received 5 stars are chosen as finalists. In 2020 – a year that saw little professional joy for me – I am honored to have 3 books nominated in various categories for their prestigious awards.

VANILLA WITH A TWIST is in the ROMANTIC COMEDY category

MISTLETOE, MOBSTERS, & MOZZARELLA is in theHOLIDAY ROMANCE category

And A  PRIDE OF BROTHERS: RICK is a finalist in the ROMANTIC SUSPENSE category.

This is an unbelievable honor!!

In 2019, DEARLY BELOVED was the winner in the ROMANTIC COMEDY category and cried happy tears for days!!

For a complete list of this year’s finalists, you can click on this link: NNLIGHTBOOKAWRDS2020

The winners will be announced next week and I am keeping various body parts crossed for another win! What a fabulous Christmas Present that would be!

A Goodreads Giveaway, a Facebook Event and more in October 2020!

I’ve got a lot going on this month. I’m a little exhausted and it’s only the first day of October! heehee

So, let’s start at the very beginning ( A very good place to start according to Maria Von Trapp). It’s never too early to be thinking of Christmas and the Holidays. They will be here soon enough and you want to have all your Holiday 2020 reading done, or the list made out of books you want to ask for for a present. With those thoughts in mind…..Today, I’ve started a 2 week GOODREADS giveaway for 3 lucky winners to win an autographed copy of MISTLETOE, MOBSTERS, & MOZZARELLA in print!! It’s open to US occupants only because of prohibitive shipping costs to elsewhere. But, if you reside in the continental US and would like to win a paperback copy, here’s the link to enter: GOODREADS GIVEAWAY and good luck!

Next on the agenda: on October 14, MISTLETOE, MOBSTERS, & MOZZARELLA releases into the book reading world. Have you preordered your copy yet? Well let me help you if you haven’t; here’s the link: MMM

Also, on 10.14, I’m having a release day event on my facebook Peggy Jaeger, Author page. I’ll be live from 1:30 pm EST until 10 pm EST,. Here’s a list of the amazeballs authors who will be joining me throughout the day:

This is the first time I’ve ever thrown one of these events. I’m usually a guest on someone else’ release day event, so I’ve never had to do more than stop by for a half hour or so. This time, the entire day will be spent on FB. If I’m not blind or insane by the end of the night it will be an October miracle. Remember those: we used to have them when we got to watch real baseball games from the bleacher seats. ( insert sarcasm)

I’ve got another surprise coming up on 10.26.2020. I’m part of a 10-writer holiday 2020 anthology titled CHRISTMAS COMES TO DICKENS. 

And if you buy this amazeballs collection for just 99cents ( COME ON! What a price!!!!) you can get the companion cookie recipe book from the authors as well. We are working on making the cookie book FREE to all right now, so DO NOT ORDER IT yet!!

I’ve been busy writing, baking, editing, and formatting.

And playing with my new puppy, who you can follow on instagram, here: MapleLeafthedog  

So you can see why I’m exhausted.

Heehee.

#CyberMonday is tomorrow…Are you ready?

When I was a kid 175 years ago there was BLACK FRIDAY and then regular shopping days until Christmas.

Welcome to the new world, peeps.

CYBER MONDAY starts at midnight tonight and Cyberspace is predicted to be the most jammed it’s ever been this year with people looking for great sales on gifts.

Well, because the marketing end of the publishing business never takes a day off, I, too, am offering up  some great ( in my humble opinion!) sales items. 2 of my books are marked down to just 99 cents on Amazon, Book, and Itunes.

 

CHRISTMAS & CANNOLIS, my award-winning San Valentino holiday romcom is on sale for 2 weeks here: Amazon  Nook  Itunes

With Christmas season in full swing, baker Regina San Valentino is up to her elbows in cake batter and cookie dough. Between running her own business, filling her bursting holiday order book, and managing her crazy Italian family, she’s got no time to relax, no room for more custom cake orders, and no desire to find love. A failed marriage and a personal tragedy have convinced her she’s better off alone. Then a handsome stranger enters her bakery begging for help. Regina can’t find it in her heart to refuse him.

Connor Gilhooly is in a bind. He needs a specialty cake for an upcoming fundraiser and puts himself—and his company’s reputation—in Regina’s capable hands. What he doesn’t plan on is falling for a woman with heartbreak in her eyes or dealing with a wise-guy father and a disapproving family.

Can Regina lay her past to rest and trust the man who’s awoken her heart?

 

And my indiebook IT’S A TRUST THING in on sale exclusively at Amazon.

Nell Newbery has trust issues. It’s hard to trust when you’re the daughter of a fallen financial scion who bilked people out of billions. Nell’s done everything in her power to keep away from men who see her as their ticket to fortune and fame. All she wants to do is run her ultra-successful business, HELPFUL HUNKS, in peace.

But it wouldn’t hurt to find a guy who doesn’t know a thing about her father’s felonious past; one she can give her heart to and trust it won’t come back to her battered, bruised, and broken.

Is Charlie Churchill that guy? On the surface he seems perfect, all polished manners and quiet mirth. Nell’s convinced he knows nothing about her, other than she likes superhero movies and views junk food as a food group.

Can she trust him to be what he appears to be? Or is he just pretending?

For Nell, trust is everything in life…and in love.

So, if you are shopping in your jammies, haven’t brushed your hair or teeth yet, and are looking for a great book deal for the Romance book reader on your holiday list – or if you just want to gift yourself a good book – I hope you’ll take advantage of my sale.

Be well and happy shopping!
Until next time ~ Peg

Start your holiday reading early this year with books from…me!

A little self aggrandizing, I know ( Hee hee)

But the premise is clear – there are so many great Holiday themed books out there to choose from, if you start reading now, you’ll make it through the holidays, probably with some books to spare!

Here are my 3 most current Holiday themed romances:

HOPE’S DREAM ( Deerbourne Inn #2)

*** this title is available in E-copy only and is 98 pages long.
What if everything you’ve ever dreamed about was given to you but you had to sacrifice your heart to obtain it?

Hope Kildaire gave up her dream of becoming a nurse practitioner when a car accident killed her father and left her mother an invalid. Working two jobs and caring for her mother leaves the twenty-seven-year-old with no time for fun or relationships. When a law firm representing her paternal grandparents sends her several letters, Hope ignores them. She despises the family who disowned her father and wants nothing to do with them.
Lawyer Tyler Coleman’s job is simply to obtain Hope’s signature on a legal document. Getting it is harder than planned, though, when an unexpected attraction blossoms between them. If Ty is honest with Hope about why he’s in Willow Springs, he’ll fulfill his assignment but may risk hurting her.
The opportunity to have everything she’s ever desired is at Hope’s fingertips. Will her dream come true at the expense of Tyler’s love?

Readers who like the following stories will like HOPE’S DREAM: Sweet romance, Small town romance, Independent woman, family, moving on, grief and loss, New England, Deerbourne Inn series, Contemporary romance
HOPE’S DREAM is the second book in the DEERBOURNE INN SERIES from WIld Rose Press

A KISS UNDER THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS

Can a kiss under the Christmas lights lead to a forever love?

With Christmas just a few weeks away, Gia San Valentino, the baby in her large, loud, and loving Italian family, yearns for a life and home of her own with a husband and bambini she can love and spoil. The single scene doesn’t interest her, and the men her well-meaning family introduce her to aren’t exactly the happily-ever-after kind.
Tim Santini believes he’s finally found the woman for him, but Gia will take some convincing she’s that girl. A misunderstanding has her thinking he’s something he’s not.
Can a kiss stolen under the Christmas lights persuade her to spend the rest of her life with him?

CHRISTMAS & CANNOLIS

Can a second chance at love heal a broken heart? 

With Christmas season in full swing, baker Regina San Valentino is up to her elbows in cake batter and cookie dough. Between running her own business, filling her bursting holiday order book, and managing her crazy Italian family, she’s got no time to relax, no room for more custom cake orders, and no desire to find love. A failed marriage and a personal tragedy have convinced her she’s better off alone. Then a handsome stranger enters her bakery begging for help. Regina can’t find it in her heart to refuse him.
Connor Gilhooly is in a bind. He needs a specialty cake for an upcoming fundraiser and puts himself–and his company’s reputation–in Regina’s capable hands. What he doesn’t plan on is falling for a woman with heartbreak in her eyes or dealing with a wise-guy father and a disapproving family.
Can Regina lay her past to rest and trust the man who’s awoken her heart?
