Good morning!  Today’s post will link up to Sunday Salon, The Sunday Post,  and Book Journey, for What Are You Reading?

**Mailbox Monday is now hosted at the home site:  Mailbox Monday.

Good morning, Bloggers!  Grab some coffee, and let’s talk about our weeks.




This has been a great week, in terms of movement on my newest book, Interior Designs.  Here is the book cover, and the book itself should be released by mid-April…or sooner.

We are definitely having some spring weather, but there was some rain earlier this week…and even some wind.  But it’s not cold.  Or hot.  So that works for me.

That’s my week!  What is coming up next for you?







    1. Thanks, Bea…I’m glad you liked my new cover. Enjoy your Amazon credit, for whenever you use it. I have a hard time waiting…but I did have a list of e-books I’d been wanting, but had postponed. Have a great week!


  1. My Amazon credit is small, but I can do some serious damage with my B&N credit, which is burning a **virtual** hole in my pocket. Your forthcoming book sounds wonderful,..what a great description of the protagonist…I think many readers will relate to her.

    I want all the new books you’ve added this week, except for Last Letter from Your Lover, which I’ve already enjoyed. That was my first JoJo Moyes novel, and it made me a huge fan.

    My Sunday post: http://www.bookclublibrarian.com/2014/03/weekly-book-recap-60.html


    1. Thanks, Catherine, glad you liked the sound of my new book. The protagonist was the “antagonist” in the previous book, Embrace the Whirlwind, so it was a challenge to bring out her positive traits.

      My first Moyes book was Me Before You, but then I added some more, and recently read The Girl You Left Behind.

      I’m glad you could stop by, and have a great week.


  2. My oh my, what a good week for you! I counted 9, including Interior Designs, that I would like to read or have on my wishlist now (seemed quicker than naming them all). One I had never heard of but looks interesting is Invisible Ellen. The others I knew about but don’t have yet. Enjoy the week, and hopefully your good weather holds out during it. (aside: I like the work you did on your blogs recently).


    1. Oh, thanks, Rita…so nice of you to notice the work! LOL

      I do enjoy fiddling with them…and now with the new book coming out, I can add it to sidebars.

      Thanks for stopping by…and I think Invisible Ellen looks good, too.


    1. I have never bought an e-book from B & N…since I have a Kindle. But I’ve noticed that those customers got credit, too. What a nice windfall!

      Enjoy your week, Limabean, and thanks for stopping by.


  3. joyweesemoll

    We’ve got a spring day here, too, but I’m not counting on it lasting for very long. I’ll be getting in a walk and my husband is grilling supper to take advantage of it.

    I’m having a fun Bloggiesta — hope you are, too!


  4. Good luck with your book! I really like the cover for Interior Designs! We’re having some spring weather here as well, the last few days where pretty warm. But luckily not as warm as it is in the summer. I hope you enjoy your new books!


    1. Thanks, Lola…glad you like the cover. There were several concepts developed for me, and it was hard to choose. But the more I stare at it, the more I like it. LOL

      Glad you could stop by, and I enjoy spring more than summer, too.


  5. Looks like a great week on the blogs and nice cover for your new book too. Reconstructing Amelia sounds like a powerful read, and timely in this day and age… seems pretty relevant to what a lot of kids go through.


  6. Congratulations on your book progress! The cover is terrific! I have been looking at The Peach Keeper and Tempting Fate. They both look good. I am off to find out more about Interior Designs. 🙂


  7. The cover for your book looks very appealing and is definitely what we call in German a ‘Hingucker’ (= looker, eye-catcher). Congratulations! Quite a nice book haul for you as well, Dead Weight caught my eye – I could do with some weight disappearing :), but interesting take on a crime story.


  8. The cover of Interior Designs is gorgeous! So many good books. I’m a Jojo Moyes fan, my favourite so far is The One Plus One but I haven’t read The Last Letter From Your Lover yet. I’ve also got The Peach Keeper on audio to get to at some stage, love SAA too.

    Have a wonderful week and happy reading 🙂


  9. thebookdate

    Yes agree your book cover looks gorgeous. Some books here I want to read. The Peach Keeper is on my actual bookshelf, must read it. All the best for the April release.


  10. What a great week for you! I love your book’s cover! Congratulations in advance! 🙂

    I love your haul! I saw Jojo Moyes and I just immediately thought of the one book of hers I’ve read, which was Me Before You. 🙂 And I love that cover for BEFORE WE MET. I bought The Peach Keeper a while ago on sale but I haven’t read it yet. I haven’t even removed its plastic cover yet. LOL 🙂 Have a great week ahead and thanks for dropping by my Sunday Post 🙂


  11. Pretty Cover for you new book, Interior Designs. Best wishes for its release. I enjoyed The Last Letter From Your Lover. Also, I’ve heard Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen is good. I enjoyed Lost Lake by her.


    1. Thanks, Sam, I’m very thrilled about my book, too.

      I am glad to hear you enjoyed the Lucie Whitehouse…I had been noticing it around, and when I could gleefully push “buy” due to the credit, I was feeling lucky.

      Enjoy your week!


  12. Great cover on your new book! I’ve spent a small part of my amazon credit – it’s such a delicious feeling just hitting the buy button. 🙂 Spring is making a slow entrance in my area but we’re all grateful! Have a great week.


    1. Thanks, Mary, for the congrats….and hitting that buy button was awesome. I went through my credit in no time flat! LOL

      Enjoy your spring, whenever it slowly comes around…and have a great week, too.


  13. That Amazon credit is burning a hole in my pocket! I’m trying to be strategic with it, but I’m sure it will be gone soon. All of your new arrivals look pretty great, especially Invisible Ellen. Hope you enjoy!


    1. Ha-ha…love the term “Goldilocks weather.” You are so right, though. Although today is a little windy and chilly, I can’t complain. Thanks for stopping by, Leslie.

      And thanks for the book congrats. I finished reviewing the book proof (the physical book came yesterday), so it should be up on Amazon within a couple of days.
