Enjoy Ava’s Newest Release

Dear Readers,

I’ve always loved a great story that started with Once Upon A Time…

But when I decided to write about a bunch of football heroes with a lot of heart, I decided to call this new series, Once Upon a Dare. Why? Because these are the kind of men (and women) who dare everything for the important things in life, love most of all.

Speaking of daring everything, it’s the release day of THE GATE TO EVERYTHING, the first book in this new Dare series connected to Dare Valley through Blake and Natalie’s story in THE BRIDGE TO A BETTER LIFE. If you read that book, you met all of Blake’s childhood football camp buddies. What a crew! Now, it’s time for Jordan and Grace’s story. I can’t wait to hear what you think. Their journey is about becoming parents and all the changes involved, but mostly all the love and joy of family.

Here’s a little teaser:

Quarterback Jordan Dean thought he had everything until his long-time girlfriend broke up with him. His football rock star life had become too burdensome to her. Plus there was another teensy, weensy reason. Chef Grace Kincaid had gotten tired of waiting for him to propose. Ouch.

When Jordan wins the Super Bowl, he tells himself it’s enough. But he can’t get Grace out of his mind. When she calls, insisting they meet, he eagerly agrees.

Only to discover he’s going to be a father…

Grace had always wanted a happily ever after—her yellow house, the picket fence, and children—with Jordan. She’s not willing to settle for a shotgun wedding. But hope makes her agree to live next door to him in the dream house he’d secretly had built for her. The fire of their attraction and deep waters of their love reemerge as they become parents for the first time.

The gate between their houses becomes the key—to everything.

The audio book is also going to be finished in a couple weeks. I’ll let you guys know when it’s out! It’s so fun hearing about all of you listening to the books and Em Eldridge’s brilliant narration.

Coming Soon

Since I know some of you, you’re wondering what’s next. I’m just starting to write the next Dare River book, THE FOUNTAIN OF INFINITE WISHES. It’s good to be back with Rye and company. I’m already in love with Vander Montgomery, the private investigator Shelby hires to find their father. Swoon!

Pre-order it so you’ll be ready October 5!

Buying My Print Books at Barnes & Noble

I won’t go into all the reasons why you can’t just walk into any bookstore in the nation and buy my books. I know you only want a solution. Thankfully, B&N heard you (and me too). They have just rolled out an exciting print program, one I was involved with before the launch. Now, you’ll be able to buy my books IN PRINT online through them OR ask your local store to order them for you. One day VERY soon, you should be able to walk in and buy them off the shelf, and if you’re in your local B&N any time soon, please go ahead and request they stock it. Did you know store managers LISTEN? They want to know who to put on their ever-shrinking shelves.

Here’s the print link to B&N.

And as always, you can buy them on Amazon as well if you’re in the US right here.

For those of you who live outside the US, I’m working on expanding more globally too. My books are being translated in seven countries so far, and I’m hoping to find a way to spread my English titles in print around the world. Thanks for your help in making it happen!

Summer Fun

Beyond writing the next book, it won’t surprise you that I am making homemade ice cream A LOT for some people in my family. I’m also BBQing like crazy and have 25 pounds of mesquite wood waiting for me to tackle. I’m thinking about making bacon for the first time. I’ll let you know how it goes on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Come follow me if you haven’t already.

Again, thanks so much for making all my dreams come true. Just a few days ago, I celebrated my third year as a published author. Here I am twenty-four titles later. It kinda blows the mind.

Lots of light and joy,

What Do You Need?

Since coming out as a healer in addition to being a writer and staring to integrate the Happiness Corner blog feel into more of my social media, I’m going to be posting things on Facebook that I post here as well. So if you follow me you might see it both places. Hope that’s okay. […]
