Gavert City is on Kindle Unlimited (plus a promo…)

Are you ready to set foot into Gavert City? “The perfect books for fans of Criminal Minds and the movie Scream…” are now available on Kindle Unlimited as a boxed set. You can also get it as paperback.

Have you already read all the books and do you have a few minutes? You can leave a review and help other readers find this bundle of books.

Are you ready to step into Gavert City? The small Texan town with a history of mysterious disappearances and murders and cults, where falling in love almost seems dangerous? Those books filled with tension and twists will keep you up at night and may break your heart before piecing it back together.

Included in this set:

Fear Me, Fear Me Not (Erin & Dimitri’s story):
A serial killer has been terrorizing Gavert City for years… what if it’s my father? My forever crush Dimitri may try to protect me but he can’t protect me from the truth.
Here’s what we all know: Sometime this week or the next or the one after that, we will find another dead girl. Every year, a girl disappears, and every year, she’s found dead with an angel wing carved into her cheek.
And this year is no different.
Another girl disappeared.

See Me, See Me Not (Tessa & Luke’s story):
My sister disappeared years ago… but her body was never found. My mom wants to believe she’s still alive. I’m not sure what to believe. I know that I miss her. I know that I feel responsible… I’m the reason she disappeared. And I’m not the only one with secrets. My childhood crush, Luke, is back in town and there’s a darkness to him that wasn’t there before. He’s hiding something… But when he finally tells me he escaped a dangerous cult, will we be able to help each other heal or will our pasts come back to crush us?

Trust Me, Trust Me Not (Lacey & Hunter’s story):
I may have jumped for a building engulfed in flames. I may have thought I was ready to start college after living secluded in my stepfather’s dangerous cult. I may have believed I was finally safe.
I was wrong.
Can Hunter, the firefighter who saved my life, help me move on? Or will danger always lurk around us?

Do you enjoy audiobooks?

And if you enjoy audiobooks, the full set will soon be available as an audiobook set.

Reading/Listening to next…Psychological thrillers

I’m in the mood for psychological thrillers and I think those three books will definitely fulfill that craving. Is that weird to say “craving” when it comes to psychological thrillers? Hmmm. I might either read or listen to them. If you’d like to read them, at the time of this post, both WHITE SMOKE and LOCAL WOMAN MISSING are on sale for $2.99… THE REPLACEMENT WIFE came out on Tuesday. 🙂

Oh and if you’re thinking about trying Audible to listen to them, you can click here be aware not all titles are in the Plus catalogue – the Chemical Engineer and I figured that out after signing up – but you do get one credit or two credits as well which is cheaper with the membership than without). You can, also, of course get the audiobooks from your library! Many libraries have an audiobook service.

In this smart and chilling thriller, master of suspense Mary Kubica takes domestic secrets to a whole new level, showing that some people will stop at nothing to keep the truth buried.

People don’t just disappear without a trace…

Shelby Tebow is the first to go missing. Not long after, Meredith Dickey and her six-year-old daughter, Delilah, vanish just blocks away from where Shelby was last seen, striking fear into their once-peaceful community. Are these incidents connected? After an elusive search that yields more questions than answers, the case eventually goes cold.

Now, eleven years later, Delilah shockingly returns. Everyone wants to know what happened to her, but no one is prepared for what they’ll find…

The Haunting of Hill House meets Get Out in this chilling YA psychological thriller and modern take on the classic haunted house story from New York Times bestselling author Tiffany D. Jackson!

Marigold is running from ghosts. The phantoms of her old life keep haunting her, but a move with her newly blended family from their small California beach town to the embattled Midwestern city of Cedarville might be the fresh start she needs. Her mom has accepted a new job with the Sterling Foundation that comes with a free house, one that Mari now has to share with her bratty ten-year-old stepsister, Piper.

The renovated picture-perfect home on Maple Street, sitting between dilapidated houses, surrounded by wary neighbors has its . . . secrets. That’s only half the problem: household items vanish, doors open on their own, lights turn off, shadows walk past rooms, voices can be heard in the walls, and there’s a foul smell seeping through the vents only Mari seems to notice. Worse: Piper keeps talking about a friend who wants Mari gone.

But “running from ghosts” is just a metaphor, right?

As the house closes in, Mari learns that the danger isn’t limited to Maple Street. Cedarville has its secrets, too. And secrets always find their way through the cracks.

START READING ON YOUR KINDLE NOW (Only $2.99)

The #1 International bestselling author of Pretty Little Wife returns with another thrilling domestic suspense novel that asks, how many wives and girlfriends need to disappear before your family notices?

Elisa Wright is a mom and wife, living a nice, quiet life in a nice, quiet town. She’s also convinced her brother-in-law is a murderer. Josh has one dead wife and one missing fiancée, and though he grieved for them he starts dating someone new. Elisa fears for that woman’s safety, and she desperately wants to know what happened to her friend, Josh’s missing fiancée.

Searching for clues means investigating her own family. And she doesn’t like what she finds. A laptop filled with incriminating information. Other women.

But when Elisa becomes friends with Josh’s new girlfriend and starts to question things she thinks are true, Elisa wonders if the memories of a horrible incident a year ago have finally pushed her over the edge and Josh is really innocent. With so much at stake, Elisa fights off panic attacks and a strange illness. Is it a breakdown or something more? The race is on to get to the truth before another disappearance because there’s a killer in the family…or is there?

    Ryan Sawyer has a few things on his wishlist. First, he wants to stay away from Swans Cove. Second, he wants his NHL career back. And third, he wants Sorcha. Always has, always will.

    Do you want to help me choose the cover?

    I have two versions of the cover and in a couple of weeks, I will ask my newsletter subscribers to help me choose...If you’d like to help me choose, just subscribe to my readers’ newsletter before May 15th.

    You’ll also receive exclusive access to a bonus content page with bonus scenes, audiobook excerpts and more!

    A little sneak peek…

    I’ve shared a few excerpts already (including on Goodreads in my status updates).

    The first sentences…

    “Dear unknown-reader of the future, or alien archiving information on the human race (I have so many questions for you), Christmas is in the air. Well, not Christmas per se. But buttery apples and cinnamon and maybe ginger?”

    Meet Ryan…aka #HockeyHottie:

    In the past year, I got caught on video bitching about Stevens and how he’s handling the team. I punched my “sperm asshole donor” at a black-tie event. And I was involved in a fight that almost kicked our team out of the NHL.”

    Trouble seems to follow me. Or maybe, as Sorcha told me once, it’s not that trouble follows me; it is that I am trouble. But the way she said it all breathy and with that secret sexy smile of hers? It didn’t seem terrible then.

    Oh and did you know I have a podcast?

    A self-published author's diary, Books

    Guess who has a podcast? And a new book!

    Guess who has a podcast? Me! I do. 🙂 And guess who is ready to share more about her next book?

    Me! Yep, I have a podcast! And I am about to share more information about my next book.

    I am so very excited to share with all of you my very new podcast: A Self-Published Author’s Diary.

    You can listen to it on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and more!

    Please subscribe, rate and review, it really helps.

    It already has several episodes available…including an interview…with…The Chemical Engineer!

    My podcast also a trailer…which you can watch below!

    On today’s episode I not only interview The Chemical Engineer, I also share about Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Awareness Week and talk about the Ulman Foundation and their conversation with Tamika Felder. They talked bout her experience with cervical cancer and what led her to inspire others to share their stories as well. They also talked about racial disparities in healthcare and other factors that impact AYA cancer care and will continue to share part of that discussion on their Instagram throughout the month. The Ulman Foundation means a lot to us as Megan, Director, Service & Care Delivery at the Ulman Foundation, was part of our support system during my treatments for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

    If you’d like to know more about the behind-the-scenes of launching a podcast, you can read one my recent blog posts on the topic (or listen to it on my podcast). And don’t forget about signing up for my weekly emails about self-publishling if you’re interested in receiving the links and the topics I am discussing in the podcast directly in your emails.

    ANNNNNNDDDD BOOOOOOOK NEWS!

    I might be *slightly* excited about this.

    Are you ready to (a) read more about my upcoming novel #THELEFTOVERBRIDE, (b) pre-order it maybe (you can do so on Amazon , Kobo, iTunes, (c) Add it to Goodreads, (d) Join the first readers group (just subscribe to my newsletter as I’ll send more info in the coming weeks)? 

    I have set the pre-order date for August 18th, 2021. Why? Because it’s my birthday. And I’m going to turn 40. And I feel like releasing a book would be a pretty awesome way to celebrate. I’ve started writing this book in December 2019, not long after my autologous stem cell transplant. It has been a book that has been taking me so long to write and revise. It’s going to be the first book (original) that I’m releasing since September 2019. 

    And as an indie author, I get to decide my release date. Plus, that will give me time to draft the second one in the series and the prequel short stories and start drafting MISS ME, MISS ME NOT (the story of Nadia and Gabriel will be coming your way soon-ish).

    Here’s the summary for #THELEFTOVERBRIDE:

    A second chance romance set during the holiday season in a small town on Maryland’s Eastern Shore: full of laughter and heartwarming moments, checklists, family dynamics, a stubborn cat, and a rescue dog.

    All Sorcha O’Connor wants for Christmas is for her life to turn into a Hallmark movie—but sexier.
    Ryan Sawyer has a few things on his wishlist. First, he wants to stay away from Swans Cove. Second, he wants his NHL career back. And third, he wants Sorcha. Always has, always will.

    When wedding dress designer Sorcha O’Connor got stranded at the altar and went viral as #TheLeftoverBride, she lost everything: her fiancé, her thriving business, her glowing reputation, and her dreams. To forget the upcoming first anniversary of that fateful day, Sorcha is ticking items off her “31 Things to Do Before the 31st” list and creating new dress designs—working day and night to get her life back on track. Not on her list? Falling for her former best friend —at one point more than best friend—hockey star Ryan Sawyer. Especially since he’s now known as the #HockeyHottie; Sorcha’s got enough hashtags for a lifetime.

    Ryan Sawyer skated out of Swans Cove right out of high school. And since then, he stuck to the one item on his wishlist he could control. He busted his ass, making sure he always had the perfect excuse for avoiding Swans Cove: hockey. But thanks to his injured shoulder, rumors about his uncertain future at the Washington Angels, and his mother’s birthday, he’s back for a quick visit. His publicist was crystal clear—Ryan’s got to lay low and avoid stirring up trouble or risk losing his spot on the team. But he can’t stop thinking about Sorcha, the redhead who knows him better than even his therapist. Ryan wasn’t there for her when she needed him most, and for that, she might want to shred him with her dressmaker’s shears, though… Maybe he could just pass by and say hello?

    When Sorcha’s former #RunawayGroom becomes the Most Coveted Bachelor in America, virtual eyes focus on Sorcha again. This time, Ryan’s not going to bolt—even when Sorcha blurts out on national TV that both she and Ryan are working on their so-called “Happy Lists”…together.

    Will the spotlight finally work in Sorcha and Ryan’s favor? Or will their past—and their hashtags—get in the way of their Happily Ever After?

    A week after it releases, I will move it to Kindle Unlimited, so make sure you pre-order it on your preferred platform.

    Do you want to to read and review an early copy? Just sign up for my readers’ newsletter and I’ll send more information in the coming weeks.

    As always thank you for reading!

    So happy to announce… Escono Oggi: UNA SECONDA POSSIBILITÀ (Nick & Em #2).

    Lasciati tentare. Ordinalo oggi…:-) I’m very excited to announce that the Italian version of ALWAYS SECOND BEST titled UNA SECONDA POSSIBILITÀ (translated by Annalisa Lovat and proofread by Cinzia Novi) is available today!

    A volte non ti aspetti di arrivare al primo posto. A volte l’amore ti concede una seconda possibilità.

    La ballerina diciassettenne Emilia Moretti è stanca di essere sempre la seconda, e intende far vedere al mondo che anche lei merita di essere prima. Nell’imminente esibizione della Scuola di Arti dello Spettacolo, davanti agli occhi dei suoi genitori. E nel cuore del ragazzo che ama. Passa ore a provare, ore a sognare di diventare la numero uno, ore a immaginare come tutta la sua vita stia per cambiare. Ma quando niente va nel modo che aveva programmato, dovrà capire cosa significhi veramente essere al primo posto.

    Il diciottenne Nick Grawski non ha più voglia di seguire le regole del caro paparino. Ha intenzione di fargli vedere che il suo destino è di diventare un ballerino – non un avvocato – e non intende stare alla larga da Em solo perché glielo chiede suo padre. Dovrà mostrare a Em che questa volta intende restare e che non le spezzerà il cuore un’altra volta. Anche quando lei si vede crollare il mondo addosso, anche quando lui scopre che suo padre forse aveva sempre inteso proteggerlo, anche se essere pronti a sostenersi a vicenda è più difficile che innamorarsi.

    UNA SECONDA POSSIBILITÀ è un romanzo di speranza, cuori spezzati e sogni infranti. È un romanzo che parla di innamorarsi e scoprire che essere primi non è sempre la cosa più importante.

    If you haven’t picked it up, you can also get the first tome in Nick & Em’s story…UN’ESTATE SENZA PRECEDENTI (Nick & Em #1).

    Lei è la sorella più piccola del suo migliore amico. Lui è il miglior rubacuori in circolazione. Non dovrebbero stare insieme. Però quest’estate la tentazione sarà grande.
