I recently presented a paper at a library conference and got to talk about one of my favourite subjects – yes, that would be romance novels – and even better, got to show some of the delicious covers from the library stack of romances from days of yore.  I may just have to read this book, now, to see what on earth is actually going on in Maoriland. Might even blog about it…


And on the topic of covers, am still hearting the new cover for DATING DAISY!

COMING SOON!  “Return to Frazier Bay” has a new title and a new name… “The Return of Gabe McLeod,” the first book in the new Frazier Bay Series featuring the McLeod family. The book will be available across Amazon, iBooks, Barnes and Noble and Kobo late October so if you didn’t pick up “Return to Frazier Bay” when it was on sale earlier in the year, never fear, but note that Gabe McLeod is no different to Frazier Bay, just a new title, some name changes and a new cover.

“Falling for Jack” finalled in the RWNZ Koru Award for both print and digital books. It won second place (fellow Kiwi Barb DeLeo was first!) and finalled along with Julie Mac and Isabella Hargreaves. Very exciting to know readers loved the story!


And New Zealand won!  Kiwi librarian/blogger Sally has run a NZ v The World Challenge for romance novels, and Blue Creek Bachelor was the nomination in the sweet category – versus the queen of sweet romance, Debbie Macomber. And Blue Creek won! Check it out here - and thank you, Sally!
