PAR-TAY March 15! New releases and the authors are celebrating!

What do Caina Fuller, Susan Jaymes, Stephenia McGee,  and Kris Tualla and have in common? All these authors have a book released March 15 with Desert Breeze Publishing.

And we are celebrating on our blogs all day tomorrow. We will be visiting each other, telling about our books and our writing experience, and on this blog, giving away a copy of my March 1 release, More than a Job, to one lucky winner who comments between now and 11:00 p.m. Pacific on March 15

Time for fireworks, loud singing, congratulations, confetti and maybe even a little virtual champagne.

Introductions, first.

Welcoming Caina Fuller - Release  - The Witnessing
I'm a small town country girl who has always loved to read. I started out interested in writing fan fiction and decided, through encouragement from family, to begin writing original fiction. I still enjoy reading, writing fan fiction, and recently I've begun learning to draw. I have a long abiding passion for graphic art. I design book covers and also enjoy working on fan art in the Xena, Smallville, Doctor Who, and Merlin fandoms.

Susan Jaymes, Release  - Guilty Hearts
Susan Jaymes has lived in Wisconsin all her life. She fell in love with reading at a very young age. Shortly after high school she married her first love. She tells us, "We have two sons who are our pride and joy. When my children were grown and gone, I found myself writing contemporary romance stories. There is nothing better than a good drama."
She enjoys her cats, cross stitch and of course reading.
Stephenia McGee, Release - A Legacy of Lies 
Stephenia McGee wrote her first story from a first-grade spelling list. Many more have followed, but A Legacy of Lies is her first novel. She is a member of the Christian Writer's Guild and continues to work with other writers to hone her craft.
In addition to writing, Stephenia also enjoys painting and working with horses. She has a bachelor's degree from Mississippi State University in animal science and has worked and trained for several equestrian farms. She is the Chairman at Spirit Horse Ministries, and continues to use these skills in the youth programs.

She is a lifetime member of the AQHA and a member of the Fort Rosalie chapter of the DAR.
Stephenia is married to her best friend and greatest blessing, Jason, and they currently live in Mississippi with their two sons.
Kris Tualla, Release - A Discreet Gentleman of Discovery
Kris is, a dynamic award-winning and internationally published author of historical romances, writes with a fast-paced and succinct style. Her plots are full of twists, passion, and very satisfying outcomes! Kris started in 2006 with nothing but a nugget of a character in mind, and has created a dynasty. Kris, tell us a little about yourself.
I am an active member of both Romance Writers of America and the Historical Novel Society. I enjoy speaking and teaching, and created Arizona Dreamin' - Arizona's first romance-reader event!   In the Historical Romance genre, there have been literally countless kilted warrior stories told. Well, I say it's time for a new breed of heroes! Come along with me and find out why: Norway IS the new Scotland!  Big, blond, buff and beautiful men, with eyes the colors of seawater, and the wild, untamable blood of their Viking ancestors flowing through their veins. Do you feel it? The Hansen Men of Arendal, Norway - whose stories extend from post-plague Europe in 1354 through the 1840s American western expansion - are just such heroes.

OK, Kris, now I am drooling.  What a great set of books! Check in to all the blogs for chances for free books.

  2. Thanks, Lynette, for doing this! I am SO excited - this new release, "A Discreet Gentleman of Discovery" - has a DEAF private investigator in 1720 Norway. He's awesome. :)
