Happy Valentine's Day from The Dawnflier of author @KimHeadlee #MFRWOrg #ASMSG

Valentine's Day Marriage Proposal,

Happy Valentine's Day!

I selected this photo because my then-boyfriend proposed to me on Valentine's Day more than three decades ago. Since I wanted a June wedding, we set a date for the following year, and we have been together ever since. For better and for worse, it has been quite the ride. :)


Book news:

  • The audiobook edition of Liberty is coming along nicely at a rate of at least one chapter finished per week. I can scarcely wait to share it with you!
  • The passing of my dad 11 months ago threw me into an emotional tailspin, as you might imagine, complicated by the fact that I am his only heir and so all of the estate settlement duties fell on my shoulders, creating a cross-country probate process. Even so, I’m continuing to make progress on Angusel’s story in  Raging Sea, and I am scheduled to deliver the completed manuscript to my editor by the 1st of May. Part 1 (Raging Sea: Reckonings) and part 2 (Raging Sea: Enemies and Allies) are now on sale.
  • There have been so many changes to the publishing industry that I have totally overhauled my Business of Writing nonfiction book. To celebrate, I have scheduled a Goodreads Giveaway for this great resource. Scroll down a bit to enter!

Upcoming:

  • I will be signing and selling my books all weekend at Farpoint (Delta Hotels Baltimore Hunt Valley, MD; aka. Hunt Valley Inn), February 9–11. This is a new venue and weekend for this convention, but the dealers still will be set up in a public area, so you do not have to register for the convention to visit my table. In addition, I will be participating in the Book Fair (10:00 p.m. Fri.) and the following panel discussions: Star Trek: Deep Space 9 at 25 (11:00 a.m. Sat.), Shifting Landscape of Publishing (2:00 p.m. Sat.), Gender Bending (7:00 p.m. Sat.).
  • I am slated as an author-guest at MystiCon (Roanoke, VA), February 23–25, where I will be presenting my Business of Writing lecture; other program participation TBA.
Keep calm and throw on another blanket!

Flash sale #99cents Marketing Exec's Widow by @AuthorTinaGayle and two #giveaways!

Today I'm happy to support my author friend Tina Gayle and her novel Marketing Exec's Widow, now on sale for $0.99!


Marketing Exec's Widow
by Tina Gayle
Genre: Contemporary romance

Synopsis:
Letting go and rebuilding a life comes at a price.

Having come to terms with losing her husband, Jennifer is ready to move on, but she faces opposition from her friends, in-laws, and brother-in-la. He see himself as her future husband. None of them know of Jen’s marital problems and she is afraid of their reaction when they learn she has a date for Friday night?

Hagan Chaney is not anything like Craig. He tempts Jen into the future but is she willing to give love another chance after the heartache she faced the 1st time around?


Excerpt:

“Thank you.” Jen tilted her head and narrowed her gaze. His tall, lean form topped hers even with three-inch heels on, a welcome rarity from the men she usually met. In addition, he had strawberry-blond hair, a known weakness of hers. The reddish-gold locks danced along the collar of his black shirt, teasing her with the idea of running her hands through the thick mass. Her fingers twitched. She dropped her gaze. Tight jeans covered a round, squeezable butt. Hot awareness suddenly sizzled, stunning Jen with its power. She knotted her hands into fists and fought the unwelcome attraction.

No way, I’m his real estate agent, not his date for the evening. And it’s only been four months since...

“Elkhorn’s main street isn’t large, but the Little League baseball field and the restaurants should attract people to the area.” Hagan’s dark brown…no, hazel, his eyes were hazel she realized abruptly when his gaze met hers. He cocked a brow. A sexy smile teased the corner of his lips. Oh, darn, the man had nailed her ogling his backside.

Heat burned her cheeks. The air between them sizzled. Goose bumps popped out on her arms. Her internal timer ticked off each day she’d gone without sex—well over a year.

His smile grew wider and visions of his mouth melting onto hers slammed home the impossibility of the situation.

Give it up, girl. It’s not happening.

She swallowed and searched the room for a distraction, some way to gain control of her raging hormones and maintain the professional image she’d strived so hard to develop the last five years. “I agree. It is in a great location.”
