Books, Treats & Holiday Sweets!

I’m thrilled to share that Montana Born now has two anthologies out in print, Love Me, Cowboy, filled with four fun, sexy and sweet stories by Megan Crane, Lilian Darcy, CJ Carmichael and me, and Montana Born’s gorgeous Christmas collection, A Copper Mountain Christmas, featuring warm, magical and festive romances by Katherine Garbera, Melissa McClone and JP (me again!). We’ve been selling the stories as ebooks but if you’re one of my readers that prefers print, you can now order both anthologies on Amazon, and here’s a link so you can order your copy for A Copper Mountain Christmas easily.

Christmas at Montana Born Books

I’m on the road again, this time in College Station, TX to see my son, Jake.  It’s been several weeks since I saw him and it’s so good to hug him and catch up!

Meet Me in Fresno Saturday!

The traveling has begun!  Seattle and Spokane last weekend, and Central California this weekend. Ty Gurney, Mac and I are packing overnight bags as we’re heading to the San Joaquin Valley, with a 2 pm book signing Saturday afternoon at the Barnes & Noble, then a quick drive to my hometown, Visalia, for my 30th class high school reunion Saturday night at the airport Holiday Inn. I love going home and I’m so looking forward to seeing readers, family and friends in Fresno, and then all  friends from high school Saturday night. The book signing at Barnes & Noble will be very mellow–I’ll pretty much be hanging out at a card table–so drop by if you can.  No pressure.  No … Continue reading Meet Me in Fresno Saturday!

Featured Author: Beth Kendrick

I was trying to think when, and where, I first met Beth Kendrick…and I can’t.  I have so many great memories of her—tea with our librarian friend, John Charles…presenting together at a Scottsdale Library program, lunches and more teas, and then our great visit in Hawaii this summer when Beth brought her mom and son out for a week to Oahu, and I happened to be there, too, with my little guy.  Beth and her crew went surfing with Ty and his instructors and in less than a month, Beth will be here in San Clemente for my Orange County book party.  The party is going to be awesome…Anita Hughes, Beth Albright, Suzanne Redfern, and Beth Kendrick will all be … Continue reading Featured Author: Beth Kendrick

Seattle Sunday!

So excited to be back in Bellevue/WA! It’s been a great weekend so far. I met with my reader friend, Elisabeth Ringvard on Friday night and her awesome book club for a lively discussion and Elisabeth even made the Lauren Summer’s Chocolate Cake! Yesterday I was with the Inland Empire Chapter of RWA for a great workshop and then went onto Auntie’s Books in Spokane for a fun booksigning! The staff is so warm and welcoming. Thank you, Linda for making my event so wonderful! I am on the road this morning, leaving Ellensburg for the Eastside.  I can’t wait to see my friends in the Seattle area. I’ll be at these events today- Sunday, September 15th, 2013 :: 2:00pm The … Continue reading Seattle Sunday!

Back in Hawaii

I’m back in Hawaii and so enjoying the time with my boys.  It’s been six weeks since I saw my guy Ty and three weeks since I held Mac.  It’s so good to be back with them both, and now Jake arrives from California tomorrow with a couple of friends.   All I need is son Ty to be here too so I’d have my whole family with me, and it would be perfect!  Unfortunately, I have to wait another 2 weeks to see that boy.  It’s a tough summer this year with everyone spread out in so many different directions. Conference in Atlanta was fantastic – hectic but so much fun.  It was great to see my editors and … Continue reading Back in Hawaii

I’m back from Montana and already packing for Oahu to attend this weekend’s Book & Music Festival in Honolulu, before heading on to Minneapolis for my reader dinner on Monday, and then a book club dinner on Tuesday with the Horshoe Trail Book Club.   I can’t believe I’m already repacking but when I fly, I read, so I’m packing a big stack of books to take with me. One of the books I’m taking with me is Amy Sue Nathan‘s debut novel, The Glass Wives, which releases today!  Your pub day is so exciting and I’m thrilled to have Amy Sue with us on her big day.  I hope everyone will give her a warm welcome to the JaneBlog! … Continue reading Featured Author: Amy Sue Nathan

Sarah Pekkanen Joins Me in Alexandria!

I might be in Hawaii for the week with my boys, but I’m really excited about my reader dinner in Alexandria two weeks from now!  I’ll be hosting the dinner on Sunday, April 21st with bestselling author, Sarah Pekkanen, as my guest.  Some of you already know Sarah, but in case you don’t,  I thought I ought to introduce you to someone that is touted by Library Journal as a “rising star in women’s fiction”. Sarah’s brand new novel, The Best of Us, is out today and sometime in the night, Amazon downloaded my copy of The Best of Us onto my Kindle so that’s what I’m reading next…ust as soon as I finish Anne Gracie’s The Autumn Bride Sarah Pekkanen … Continue reading Sarah Pekkanen Joins Me in Alexandria!

Snapshots From The Road

I’ve been home two days and am already packing to fly to the Bay Area Friday morning, but wanted to share a few more of my favorite photos that readers and friends have sent me.  Hope you enjoy the pics!  A new blog is coming soon.  I’m just trying to get caught up with laundry and bills and emails and hanging out with my boys, too!  They’re missing me and I’m really missing them.  It’s been wonderful seeing readers for the past 7 weekends but now I’m eager to stay home, be a hands on mom again, and start writing that new book! This coming weekend is my last ‘official book tour’ weekend for The Good Daughter and I’m returning … Continue reading Snapshots From The Road

Back in Bellevue

This past weekend, I went back home to Bellevue.  It was a wonderful couple of days, fun and exciting and also a little bittersweet.  Son Ty was with me and we loved every minute of our weekend, catching up with friends. On Sunday, March 3rd, Nancy Nordquist from the Downtown Bellevue Barnes & Noble hosted an event for me and treated me like a star!  She was so sweet and so efficient.  We had a great turn out with over 50 people.  I can’t wait to do it again in September for The Good Wife. I have the best readers and fans. They’re wonderful! Today I’m headed to Tulare for an event at the Tulare Public Library at 5:30pm and … Continue reading Back in Bellevue
