BookBub Names THE HEART-SHAPED MURDERS One of This Year's "Buzziest" Suspense Books! (Plus Promo Run Scoop)

Happy September, friends! Can you believe that fall is already around the corner? I can't! But as always, I'm looking forward to the cooler months, and of course, the holiday season. 

Today, I am excited to share with you several updates on THE HEART-SHAPED MURDERS, as well as give you the scoop on the book's latest promo run. Keep reading for deets!

One morning last month, as I was putting the finishing touches on Book 3's proposal for my West Coast Crime Story series (MURDER AT VINCENT VINEYARD), an email popped up on my computer screen. It was from my editor, letting me know that THE HEART-SHAPED MURDERS had been included on BookBub's list of "buzziest" romantic suspense novels to hit shelves this year. I was absolutely thrilled! 

That same day, I also signed a 3-book deal with Harlequin Intrigue and received the fab cover for my upcoming Christmas thriller, BACKCOUNTRY COVER-UP (reveal coming soon). Needless to say, that was a good day!

In addition to hitting BookBub's list, I also made a few other appearances. The Heat Seekers Magazine, which is a publication that showcases all genres of the entertainment industry, chose me as their Author of the Month. CLICK HERE to take a look!

Angela Drake is a book blogger and huge supporter of authors who discovered me over on Twitter when I announced my film deals for CHRISTMAS IN FULL BLOOM and LOVE AT THE ICICLE CAFE. She recently reached out and asked if I'd be interested in appearing on her blog, The Writers Studio, to discuss my writing process, writer's nest, and tips for aspiring authors. I jumped at the chance. CLICK HERE, HERE, and HERE to take a look at what I shared!

With Covid taking over our lives for the past couple of years, many of us have turned to Zoom in order to communicate with colleagues, loved ones, potential love interests, etc. When it comes to my readers, I am thankful for it as I've connected with so many people that I may not have otherwise! 

On August 14th, I hung out with the wonderful women of the Victorious Ladies Reading Book Club to discuss my very first Harlequin Intrigue novel, COLD CASE, TRUE CRIME. I was so excited to meet the founder of the group, Cassandra Haywood, who I was introduced to by my good friend and fellow author, Jacquelin Thomas. Not only did the book club collectively select COLD CASE, TRUE CRIME as August's Book of the Month, but I was given the opportunity to chat about it, answer questions, discuss all that I've got coming up next, and more. Thank you so much for having me, VLR

Just in case you missed my last blog post, I participated in fellow author Melissa McClone's Fisher House Tote Bag Reader Giveaway last month, and it was amazing! I, along with 40 other authors, donated books, swag, beauty items, etc. to this wonderful organization that supports military families whose relatives are in need of medical treatment. Through Melissa's charity event, I connected with so many readers while supporting a great cause.

Check out my beautiful aunt, Glenda, who chose THE HEART-SHAPED MURDERS as her beach read during a recent trip to Florida. 😍

Thank you so much for stopping by! This latest promo run for THE HEART-SHAPED MURDERS has been wonderful. Soon I will be revealing the cover for my upcoming Christmas novel, BACKCOUNTRY COVER-UP, as well as a short story I wrote for, titled, A DEADLY CHRISTMAS INVITATION. Stay tuned for more info on both of those projects! XO
