ALWAYS A STRANGER - Release day! (Two days late!)

ALWAYS A STRANGER's release day occurred during a particularly hectic week. Grades were due, I'm on a hiring committee that was conducting interviews of top candidates, etc., etc. Oh, and we celebrated a birthday in the family so, coincidentally, we happened to have cupcakes and balloons in the house on release day! Yay!

It's been so chaotic, though, that today was the first day I could get here to "officially" announce everything I should have announced on Thursday! 

NOTE: As difficult as it can be for me to find time to write updates on Facebook and here on my blog, I can usually be relied upon to visit Twitter on a daily basis. So if you want up-to-the minute news about me and my books, follow me on Twitter

I feel fortunate to have had some much appreciated attention online for the release of ALWAYS A STRANGER on its release day:

The Book Pushers - an exclusive excerpt of ALWAYS A STRANGER!

Heroes and Heartbreakers - First Look review!

Dear Author - release day review (Note: I generally don't comment on reviews, except to express my gratitude for the reviewer's time and attention---but I have to say that I deeply appreciated this review because the reviewer really saw things that were most important to me when I was writing ALWAYS A STRANGER. So it's a C+ review but it feels like an a personal A in terms of how I wanted to reach readers!) 

Historical Romance Reviews - This was a pre-release review from March 30. If I did scrapbooking, it would definitely go in my author scrapbook. (I tried scrapbooking and would love to keep it up, but I just end up collecting piles of stuff "To Scrapbook" and then never finding the time to put them together!)

Ella Quinn's blog - check out my guest post about how Japanese ukiyo-e art influenced ALWAYS A STRANGER (at the blog of fellow eKensington author Ella Quinn)

USA Today's Happily Ever After blog - ALWAYS A STRANGER even got a mention at USA TODAY online! Eeeeep!

I'll be doing a virtual book tour for ALWAYS A STRANGER (with giveaways) from May 26th to June 6th! Check out my Appearances page for more information on where you can find me!
