It's a Real Book!

Today the second book in my Angel's Bay Series, ON SHADOW BEACH, was officially released!  It's the 26th book I've published, but I never get over the thrill of actually seeing the book as a book, no more looking at manuscript pages or reading on the computer.  It's there between the beautifully designed covers and on the shelves, too!  Although, I haven't yet seen it on an actual shelf, I'm planning to do some signings starting this weekend.

And this time around, the excitement won't end soon as the third book in the series, IN SHELTER COVE, will be released on April 27th. I had asked my publisher to release the books as closely together as possible since some of the characters continue, and I think readers enjoy reading a series of books when they're published fairly frequently.  Luckily, my publisher was able to put me in the schedule for the back to back books and I'm just thrilled.

There will also be a book 4, still to be titled, coming out in the fall, and maybe a couple of more books depending how readers respond to the series.  I'm hoping everyone will enjoy reading the books as much as I've enjoyed writing them.

I'm currently finishing up book four, and I can't wait to get into the next story!

If you haven't yet read an excerpt from On Shadow Beach - check out my book buzzer widget on the right and you can read the first chapter.

And if you have read Suddenly One Summer or are currently reading On Shadow Beach, come back and let me know what you think.  Would also love to hear any On Shadow Beach sightings, especially at the drugstores and Wal-Marts - I never know exactly where the books will show up!


  1. I'm so excited the new book is out. Am off to Barnes and Noble to snag my copy. Congratulations! I can't imagine what it's like to write a book. But I love reading 'em.

  2. I LOVED the first book and have been dying to find out what happens to Colin! And I'm so happy that there are two books coming out close together.

  3. Congrats on the new release. It's nice that the third book is coming out next so there's not too much waiting time.
