Forged by Sacrifice Goodreads Giveaway

Forged by Sacrifice Banner

One month! Four weeks! Thirty days! That’s it folks… That’s all that is between you and Mac & Georgie for real. I can’t wait for them to be in your eReaders or in your hands. Their story may be one of my favorites that I’ve written… just saying. It’s even giving Lonnie and Wynn a run for their money.

Mac & Georgie’s story (and the bonus epilogue) has spurred two more stories. So, there will now be SIX interconnected, standalone novels in the Anchor Novels. Yikes!!! Of course, I’m slow, slow, slow in writing, especially now that I’m back with the little first graders. But I am excited to work on ALLLLL these books. Plus, I’m still trying to work on a secret Album book for ya’ll. And there’s this little magical realism book and a paranormal book I have in the works. Phew. I hope you’ll stick with me and be patient while I weave the words together. Some of them are already up on Goodreads and you could follow them there so as not to miss out. Here's the link to me on Goodreads. Plus, I shared them in my reader group this week.

(Shhhh - a little secret: don't just follow me but friend me there by clicking the down arrow on the follow button from a desktop, and you’ll see my updates in your Goodreads main feed)

BUT, that’s not the news (hahahaha). The news for today is that I also have a Goodreads Giveaway up and running where you can enter for a chance to win one of THREE more signed paperbacks that I’m giving away for Forged. Enter, enter, enter. (That was me trying to send you a subliminal message, did it work?). I’m sorry that this giveaway is US only. It would cost me one of my beloved kitties in order to send the books internationally. WHY does postage have to be so expensive?!!! WHY?!

If you’re not following me on any of my social media sites, you might have missed the reveal of the character cards for Mac & Georgie this week. Don’t worry, I’ve got you. Here they are.

𝙈𝙖𝙘 𝙒𝙝𝙞𝙩𝙩𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙧

Determined to change the world for the better. To find the solutions for hunger and hatred. His family, both his brothers in arms and his real family, are his everything. Believes in love at first sight and happily ever afters.

Quote that should be about him:

A man can only be judged by his actions, and not by his good intentions or his beliefs. —Paul Newman

Favorite Food: Grandma’s Italian

Favorite Color: Jade Green

Favorite Place: With his family

Favorite Song: Citizen Solider, 3 Doors Down

Biggest Regret: Leaving the Navy

𝙂𝙚𝙤𝙧𝙜𝙞𝙚 𝘼𝙨𝙩𝙧𝙚𝙡𝙡𝙖

Beautician turned law student who doesn’t believe in trusting her senses or in blind love. She is staunchly unashamed of her family. You’ll rarely catch her without contacts that match her outfits.

Quote that should be about her:

Go out into the world with your passion and love for what you do and just never give up.

—Dianne Reeves

Favorite Food: Italian

Favorite Color: Purple

Favorite Place: the library

Favorite Song: Confident, Demi Lovato

Biggest Regret: Trusting her brother

I’m kind of in love with the cards. And they really led me to redoing my author logo AND my website… Because I definitely have trouble staying focused on anything these days. Sigh. Anyway, here’s the new logo.

Did you know that you can see the character cards for all my books on my website? Just select “Books” on the menu, choose the book you want to see the cards for, then choose “see character cards.” It’s that simple.

Couple reminders about Forged before I share some HOT BOOK news and then skedaddle out of here.

Becca on IG won my eight book signed paperback giveaway that I was doing. But, follow me on IG, because I’ll be involved in 4 more signed book giveaways with multiple authors over the coming months.


AWESOME WHISPERSYNC OPPORTUNITIES: Do you know what Whispersync is? It’s when you buy a Kindle eBook and there is an audiobook available for the book, and Amazon offers you the audiobook at an extremely reduced price. I have a link with a whole group of authors whose audiobooks are available in this way, including My Life as a Country Album and My Life as a Pop Album. Keep the link handy, as more authors are being added on a regular basis. If you click on the link for a particular book, it will take you to the product page. Once you buy the eBook, the audiobook price will drop to the reduced amount. Super cool, right?


SALE THAT’S FADING FAST! The fabulous Jacob Chance’s PENALTY (Boston Terriers 1) is ON SALE for 99 pennies!!! Don’t miss it. Here's the blurb:

He’s the bad boy quarterback of Boston University's football team. As the son of a former NFL player, he’s showered with attention and praise twenty-four-seven. One flash of his smile and all the girls fall at his feet - or should I say to their knees?

And then there’s me.

Brady Lincoln is the last person I want attention from. He’s the kind of guy my father warned me about. His play on the field is legendary and his play with the ladies, even more so. I’ve managed to stay off his radar until recently.

What happens when the cocky quarterback breaks all the rules to win my heart?

MY FAVORITE NEW BOOK THIS WEEK: I’m currently reading an ARC of Owen & Savannah’s story, LOVE ME TOMORROW, by Maria Luis. Gah, I love her words. You won’t want to miss this one, folks. It comes out this week―on the 26th! Here’s the blurb:

They call her America’s Sweetheart.

And me? I’m the so-called “inked god” she dumped on TV.

I’ve tried to forget her. I’ve tried to move on.

Until I discover that her family is opening a new restaurant next to my tattoo parlor.

If I were a gentleman, I’d offer my congratulations and go my own way.

If I were a gentleman, I’d let her be... but I’m not.

Savannah Rose may claim I’m nothing more than a friend, but that slight hitch in her breath whenever I get too close says that America’s sweetheart is nothing but a liar.

All it takes is one scorching kiss, and I vow in her ear: “You’re going to beg. Beg me to touch you, beg me to give you more, and if you’re real good, maybe I’ll do it all over again before you have to beg for that too.”

I’m no gentleman.

But Savannah Rose? She’s no one’s sweetheart but mine.


9/25 Mile High by B. Cranford

9/26 Wilder Love by Emery Rose

9/27 The Price of Scandal by Lucy Score (the 1st in the Bluewater Billionaire series by Lucy, Kathryn Nolan, Claire Kingsley, and Pippa Grant)

9/30 Alma Underwood Is Not a Kleptomaniac by Lacey Dailey


Thanks, as always, for putting up with my rambling and reading all the way to the bottom of my page. I hope that you stay connected with me and maybe join my Facebook readers group so that I can hear from you more often:
