The InD’Tale magazine Rone nominees are set for this week. My ROMANTIC SUSPENSE novel from The Wild Rose Press A PRIDE OF BROTHERS: AIDEN is up in the Suspense/Thriller Steamy category and I’m up against some pretty impressive other books!
There’s a song that says I’m not afraid to beg, and I’M NOT!!! Hee hee
If you can see it in your heart to, please vote for A PRIDE OF BROTHERS: AIDEN. I was a finalist with book 1 last year, RIck, and I came in second. I don’t think I have to say how thrilled I’d be to win this year!! And yes, that is shameful self-promotion, but I own it!
I love this time of year – Rone Awards season. LOL
InD’Tale Magazine’s RONE awards are an industry shoutout to books that have been reviewed by the mag and have garnered 4.5 – 5 stars. The third book in my New York Socialites series, BALANCE, is one of those books and is a nominee in the STEAMY CONTEMPORARY CATEGORY.
So, you probably know what I’m going to ask next: YES!!!! Please cast your vote to make BALANCE a finalist!!!
The rules are simple:
you have to log into InD’Tale magazine and make an account ( Don’t worry – there’s nothing to buy and they won’t bother you with ads!). Here are the instructions to do so: LOG IN
Once you are logged in, scroll to this categories page, here: Week 2
Find the CONTEMPORARY STEAMY CATEGORY and scroll to BALANCE.
Cast your vote, hit submit and that’s it!
You can only vote once in each category so you’re done for now and I just sweat it out to hear if I’m a finalist! HEE HEE
If you’d like to see the REVIEW that got me the nomination, you can read it here: BALANCE REVIEW
Seriously, though, thank you for participating in my crazy life. The Rone Awards are a writing industry-standard ( kinda like the Oscars) and I’d be thrilled to ever win one.
What a great way to start off a week! Just found out my book WOKE is a semifinalist in the UNCAGED REVIEWS Raven awards for 2020-2021. I became a finalist because my book was rated 5 stars by the Uncaged Reviewers.
To move on to the finalist category, the public votes on their favorite covers for each month, so this blog is actually a a BEG BLOG today ( LOL). I need your vote.
Here is the link to vote and the instructions:
My book WOKE is featured in the NOVEMBER CATEGORY, third from the bottom of the list. You need to click on the circle next to it then scroll down and click VOTE. Once you do, you’re done. Voting goes until July 2 so get your vote in early. Then scroll up and down the finalist list to see if any other of your favorites books/authors made the cut and vote for them.
My second good thing is that WOKE is going into wide digital distribution next week. This will be the second book I’ve managed to get into all outlets online and I’m super excited. Here’s the PREORDER link if you don’t have a kindle and haven’t read it yet: UNIVERSAL LINK
On this brutally cold Sunday morning in New England ( -10 at my house!) I woke up to some wonderful news. My cover for BAKED WITH LOVE is up for InD’Tale’s monthly cover contest, CREME de la Cover! YOWZA!
In order to make it to the finals I need readers to vote for the cover, so I’m providing the link. You need to set up a quick account with InD’Tale to vote. I just did and it took less than 5 seconds.
I’d really appreciate any and all support for this. The winner gets advertising space in their magazine – which is expensive and something I’ve never been able to budget for.
So, if you have a moment, I’d appreciate your vote! And the cover designer, Diana Carlile, deserves the win, too!! Here’s the link: CdlC
BAKED WITH LOVE (A match Made in Heaven, bk 3) doesn’t even release until next Wednesday, 12.9, but it’s already up for BOOK OF THE MONTH over on Long and Short reviews. The reason it is is because of the BEST BOOK RATING the book received earlier in the month. In case you missed it, here’s the review: LASR
You can vote for the book until tonight, here: BOM

You can also enter to win 1 of 3 signed print copies of the book over on my Goodreads Giveaway. Here’s the link to enter: GOODREADS

What if Cynderella had a one-night stand with a man named Prince?
When I first saw Cynderella all covered in soot in that sexy maid uniform, I knew I wanted to be her Prince.She’s a smart and savvy businesswoman who’s built her cleaning company from the ground up. But now that Dirty Damsels was booming, I’ve been hired to arrange a hostile takeover. But the temptation of having her was too much to ignore… We ended up spending one night together–a night neither of us will forget. Now, I want more. I need more. I want to spend every night, skin-on-skin, with my beautiful Ella. Problem is, when she finds out who I really am, she’ll never forgive me. ~Buddy Prince
One of my favorite places to find out about new books, contests, and romance bloggers is the LOVE ROMANCE READS blog. This month, my Wild Rose Press One Scoop or Two novella VANILLA WITH A TWIST is up for BOOK OF THE MONTH, and I’d love to win this one for myself – of course – but for the whole OSOT line of books and writers. This is such a fun series and we all need a little fun in our lives right now!
Here’s the link for voting: BOTM and just in case you forgot ( hee hee) here’s what the cover looks like:
And don’t forget ( because I won’t!) I’ve got another book cover on another site up, as well. DIRTY DAMSELS is over on Uncaged Book reviews and is a finalist in the RAVEN AWARDS. This one is a very prestigious award in the Romance Reading community and again, I’d truly love to be considered, so if you have another moment, here’s the link to vote for that one: UNCAGED. I’m in two categories, Best cover and Contemporary, and yes, you can vote twice. Just find DIRTY DAMSELS with my names next to it, click on the little bubble then scroll down and hit vote!
Honestly, I love you all!!!
Be well and happy reading ( AND VOTING!! Hee hee)
