News Flash x 2!

Love Somebody Like You is a finalist for a Romance Writers of America’s® prestigious RITA® award for long contemporary romance!

We’ve added information pages for Ring of Fire, the 7th Caribou Crossing Romance under my Susan Fox pen name.

Sexy romance that’s passionate, heartwarming, and fun!

April 2016

I’m happy dancing because Love Somebody Like You (Caribou Crossing Romance #6; pen name: Susan Fox) is a finalist for Long Contemporary Romance in Romance Writers of America®’s prestigious RITA® contest!! That led to a change in plans and I’m now attending the annual RWA® conference in San Diego, July 13-16. I’m looking forward to visiting San Diego again. After spending a month there in January 2015, I know what a great city it is.

I’m also looking forward to the May 31 release of Ring of Fire, Caribou Crossing Romance #7 (pen name: Susan Fox). The website is now updated with information on the book, including behind-the-scenes notes, a lengthy excerpt, and other information. The first review, from Terri at Night Owl Reviews, rates the book as a Top Pick. (Thank you, Terri!)

"This is a very heartwarming story about a single mom and her family and a wounded soldier. No one in this story is without issues or problems yet none are characters that you would pity… Lark is a fantastic character. She’s strong and independent but caring and concerned. Eric is headstrong and starts off very set in his ways. It was nice to see him begin to relax and evolve into a bit more flexible man. I enjoyed this story. I’m not sure how to express my appreciation of having characters who have problems and these problems are part of them but not what makes them. I found this story to be very upbeat and feel good.”

On the subject of new releases, after a very long wait the French edition of Home on the Range, titled Souviens-toi, il y a dix ans, is now available. I sure hope French readers like the book—and that the publisher buys more in the series!

This month I finished my near-final draft of the first Blue Moon Harbor book, Fly Away With Me, and it’s now with critiquers. While they’re reading it, I’ve been putting together a workshop on editing for the Greater Vancouver Chapter of RWA® and an article for the Novelists Inc. newsletter. As well, I’ve started a “series bible” for Blue Moon Harbor and am brainstorming the next books in the series so that I can write a proposal for my editor.

And then, of course, there’s the fact that it’s spring! I’ve been enjoying the sunny days and grousing about the cloudy, rainy ones, and of course posting photos on my Facebook page.

Congratulations to this month’s website opinion poll contest winner, Danielle R from MI She wins an autographed ARC of Ring of Fire. A new contest is up and running.

Enjoy spring!

Lawyer Kieran Bridge’s carefully planned life has unraveled. Distraught, she travels to Crete—the island she and her deceased father had always been drawn to—in search of the key to her future.

She feels an inexplicable connection to Dr. Stefanos Dimitrakis, a fugitive accused of murdering his uncle. When Stefanos insists he’s innocent, Kieran’s instincts tell her to believe him—but in the past her judgment has failed her. How can she now believe in a bond that defies reason?
