Goodreads Giveaways for Love at the Fluff and Fold – Worldwide!

Hi friends! I wanted to make sure everyone gets a chance to win an autographed paperback copy of my new book, Love at the Fluff and Fold, so I created two giveaways. πŸ˜€

Due to the high cost of postage, I limited the number of copies that I can send around the world to two, but I will send them anywhere. Anywhere. I don’t know how many countries are listed on Goodreads, but it’s a lot! LOL! Click the button to enter below – and good luck!

This upcoming Saturday, March 26, 2016, I’ll be one of 30 authors participating in the Orange County Writers Book Fair. Fun! πŸ™‚ Click to find out more about who will be there. We’ll have fiction and nonfiction authors, and books for children and adults.

We’ll be at The Lab Anti-Mall in Costa Mesa, CA, from 11am to 4pm. I’ve never been there, but it looks really cool. Kind of artsy and eclectic. And it’s outdoors so it should be perfect at this time of year. (Right now, the weather is supposed to be a gorgeous 73 and sunny!)

If you live in the Orange County area, I’d love to see you on Saturday!

Book Marks: Strait of Hormuz by Davis Bunn

Strait of HormuzIt is with great pleasure that I participate today in Davis Bunn’s blog tour for his newest book, Strait of Hormuz! I’ve been looking forward to reading this third installment in the Marc Royce thriller series because I loved Lion of BabylonΒ (which is free on Amazon this month!) and Rare Earth, the first two books.

Marc Royce is a former CIA operative who still does “odd jobs” for his old boss, Ambassador Walton. He has been in dangerous situations all over the world, and he’s incredibly good at his job. But things are changing in his personal life, and just maybe he wants to live long enough to make some big decisions.

While struggling to find out where the new threat to America is coming from, sometimes at odds with his own government, Marc meets a really interesting array of people – a Swiss operative and a Swiss police inspector, a Persian art dealer, a knighted English art collector, and many more, as well as several people he’s worked with in the past. (I love it when you see characters appear in multiple books. It feels like you get to know them better.)

I loved all the action from the very first page. It gets off to a quicker start than the first book, which I almost didn’t read because I was bored by the political talk at the beginning. In Strait of Hormuz, I was hooked immediately and soo glad I’d set aside an uninterrupted afternoon to read. It was so fun to try to figure out what was happening as Marc and his cohorts were trying to do the same.

Without giving anything away, I was also really glad when Marc and one of the other characters finally sat down and decided to pray about what to do, and to pray for each other instead of just for the impossible thing they wanted. It seemed like they finally had a minute to put their faith in action in their relationship. Granted, there was an awful lot of trying not to get killed going on – LOL! – so I was okay that it took them awhile to finally sit down together.

I really enjoyed Strait of Hormuz, but not quite as much as the first two books. For one thing, this was the first of the three where twice I stopped and re-read what was happening. I wasn’t sure how we just went from point N to point P, so I just shrugged and made a mental leap and kept on going. It wasn’t bad, and it wasn’t confusing so much as it felt like I missed part of an explanation of what was happening.

Also, this was the first of the three books where the fact that Marc kept running into people with a Christian faith and/or background seemed less believable as the book went along. This element was one of the things I liked most about the first book, Lion of Babylon – that Marc found a few Christians who understood him and helped him in places you wouldn’t expect. It seemed real and natural in the first two books, but this time…I don’t know.

StraitofHormuzSweepstakesGraphicforLaunchTeamOther than those small things, I had a great time reading this book. Davis is so good at weaving action and thrills through a story, keeping you guessing the whole way! If you want to read the first three chapters for free, click here and “Like” his Facebook page, and you’ll see the beginning of the book there for you to read. Trust me, you won’t want to stop!

Win a Free Copy of Unexpected Superhero!

Hi friends! πŸ˜€

I have been so crazy busy getting the print version of Unexpected Superhero ready for you that I totally forgot about my blog the last few days! I’m so sorry!

First cover for the novel Unexpected SuperheroTo make it up to you, I started a book giveaway on Goodreads yesterday and I’m giving away 10 copies of the print edition of the book! Woo-hooo!!

To make it even easier, I put a “Enter to Win” button right on the sidebar here. (Down a little and on the right.) Just click the button and (once you’re signed in to your Goodreads account) choose what address you’d like your free book to be sent to, if you win.

This is an official Goodreads Giveaway, so I have nothing to do with choosing the winners. I think their computers will randomly choose ten entries.

Oh! And if you have friends in Canada, point them to the giveaway! This time the winners can be in the United States or Canada.

I’ll do another giveaway later to international entrants only. Since it costs about $20 per book in postage to send to, say, Australia, I have to do a separate giveaway with a smaller number of books to win. I’d have heart palpitations if most of the ten winners this time were outside the U.S. and I spent $200 in postage! πŸ˜›

Okay, go click on the button and enter now! You can’t win if you don’t enter! πŸ™‚
