Cover reveal and a huge sale!

So this turned out to be a rather exciting week for me.

No, I didn't figure out how to hook the car battery up to those nipple clamps.

First off, I got official permission to share the cover for my September 2015 romantic comedy About That Fling. Isn't it lovely?

I have to admit, I was a little unsure how they'd manage to capture the vibe of this contemporary romance that has some darker, deeper edges than my usual rom-com fare. I'm super in love with it!

The book is available for pre-order here, and this is more or less what it's about:

As the top PR person for the Belmont Health System, bright, beautiful Jenna McArthur knows how to spin bad news and make it sound good. But when her adorable Aunt Gertie—a secret romance writer—urges Jenna to embrace her wild side, Jenna tumbles into bed with Adam Thomas, a guy she’s just met, for a fun and fantastic one-night stand. Too bad Adam is the one guy who’s totally off-limits.  
There aren’t enough clever words in the world to spin the story in a way that won’t wreck Jenna’s closest friendship or destroy her job. With the irresistible Adam always around her at work, wearing an aura of temptation like a fabulous cologne, Jenna has to hold tight to her senses to avoid falling for him. Will he take her to the heights of pleasure again—or will their attraction destroy everything she’s worked for?

Here's that pre-order link again if you want to see that on your Kindle first thing in the morning on September 1.

The second bit of exciting news is that Fiancée for Hire was chosen to be part of the Kindle Big Deal program. At the risk of sounding redundant, that's kind of a big deal in the author world. What it means is that they price the book at 99-cents for a limited time, and then they market the ever-loving-crap out of it during the sale period.

When they do it with a series book like Fiancée, it's a killer way to get new readers hooked so they come back and buy the rest of the series at full price.

Wait, I'm probably not supposed to reveal the sales strategy behind it, huh?

Well anyway, if you've never read Fiancée for Hire (or if you have read it and want to share it with someone else for only 99-cents) now's the time to nab it. Here's the link.

So that's my week in a nutshell. Well, that and the fact that most of my life is in boxes right now because we're moving. What's new with you? Please share!
