It’s cover reveal time! I’m doing a mini blog tour this week to celebrate the new cover for Highlander Avenged, Book II in my Guardians of the Targe series. Please stop by one of these great blog sites this week to get a peek at the cover, learn a few things about me, read an excerpt of the book, and enter a giveaway – I’m giving away three signed copies of Highlander Betrayed, and one signed copy of Highlander Avenged (to be sent when it’s released on June 24th). Here’s the lineup:


Friday, March 2: Viviana Enchantress of Books

unday, March 23: Booktalk with Eileen
Monday, March 24: Written Revelry at Mike the Fanboy

Wednesday, March 26: Doing Some Reading
Thursday, March 27: Totally Addicted to Reading

I’ll be stopping by each blog to say hello, answer questions, etc. and one of these blog days is my birthday, so I’ll have a surprise present for a commenter on that day.

I also need to announce a very, very special The Winter Stone contest. The grand prize includes having The Winter Stone dedicated to the winner, along with a gift card, and a beautiful rainbow quartz “Winter Stone” necklace. Three additional necklaces – each one unique – will also be given away. Enter now on our new web site: The Winter Stone!

Also, don’t forget to enter the Jewels of Historical Romance contest for a $50 gift card to the bookstore of your choice! See the bottom of this page. There’s a new contest every month!

Hang in there – winter can’t last forever! (That’s what I was saying in February and now it’s March and still threatening snow this week. ARRRRG!)

Happy reading!
