My Harlequin “Call Story” for “Montana Reunion” & a backlist book bargain

Jul 8, 2021 | 4 comments |

Dear blog readers,

This week, I’m on the “Write for Harlequin” blog chatting about my “Call Story” (how authors describe selling a manuscript to a publisher), and my debut western romance, Montana Reunion, which will release from Harlequin Books Heartwarming line in January 2022.

Find out why I write romance, my journey to becoming a published author, what I did when I got “the call” from Harlequin and more, including hearing from my editor who describes Montana Reunion as “a full-of-hope, feel-good romance.”

A backlist book bargain

If you haven’t read Summer on Firefly Lake, a Barnes & Noble (B&N) Bookseller Pick in August 2017, it’s included in a Kindle book promotion on Amazon US and Amazon Canada for only $1.99 from July 5 to August 2, 2021.

Find out more & get the book here.

Although it’s the second book in my Firefly Lake trilogy of small-town contemporary romances set in Vermont, this friends-to-lovers story also stands alone.

“Has charm to spare… The delightful supporting cast and expertly plotted story add depth and richness to this tale, leaving readers eager for another visit to Firefly Lake.” —Publishers Weekly on Summer on Firefly Lake

      Thank you, Deb. I’m glad you enjoyed my “Firefly Lake” books. As my first published series, those books will always have a special place in my heart. I hope you enjoy “Montana Reunion” as well. I’m excited about sharing it with readers early next year.

    Why did I think this one was coming out next month?! Now I have to wait a whole half a year to read it. Oh well, I am so sure it will be worth the wait!!

      I’m sorry to make you wait, Lynn, but I’m happy you’re looking forward to reading “Montana Reunion.” I hope you enjoy it early next year. I hope to see the cover soon and will share it with readers when I can.
