EVERYTHING YOU ARE is set to release October 1st - and as of today there are 100 kindle copies up for giveaway over on Goodreads! Before I give you the link to that, let me introduce you to the characters.

PHEE: when Phee's luthier grandfather died and left her his luthier business, she thought she'd get to spend the rest of her life building and repairing violins and cellos, but the position came with a few interesting complications. Like a cello with a soul, and the responsibility to make sure its owner plays it and treats it right. She's never quite sure whether she REALLY believes in the curse that will fall if she fails, but she's rapidly getting convinced.

BRADEN: once a brilliant cellist, Braden is the owner and man responsible for Phee's special cello. But eleven years ago he injured his hands and has been unable to play. Everything has fallen apart for him since then. He's an alcoholic, estranged from his wife and two children and has nothing in his life worth living for. Until the accident that kills his wife and son, and the realization that his teenage daughter, Allie, needs him.

ALLIE: Allie feels like she was born with music running through her veins, but she blames the music -- and particularly the cello -- for the death of her mother and brother. Angry at her father for abandoning her, caught in a spiral of grief and guilt and rage, Allie is on a fast track to a disaster of her own.

THE CELLO: The cello wants to be played. She has a special and unbreakable bond with Braden. She is the link that brings Phee, Braden, and Allie together on a trajectory that could end either in disaster -- or in hope -- if only Braden can find his way back to the music.

Let's create a story - together - on Facebook Live

I had this wild and crazy idea. Full emphasis on crazy.

As you’ve probably noticed, I’m a writer. And I also have this belief that all of us are creative, whether we believe we are or not.

As I was pondering the question of what might be a fun thing to do for readers - and for me, because I’m selfish like that - the crazy idea popped right into my head. I thought:

What if I invited everybody in my world to hop over to my Facebook author page for a live story building session? How fun would that be?

Now, if a lovely group of people shows up, then this idea is really fairly sane and has the potential to actually be a super fun time. There’s not much that makes me happier than brainstorming a new story, and I’d love to bring you into that particular writer play space with me.

The crazy part is that if nobody else thinks it sounds like a fun idea, I could easily end up talking to myself, which is really a normal part of my usual creative day, but with the added pressure of talking to myself LIVE on Facebook.

But hey, now that I had the idea it’s a happening thing!

Come on over and play with me on Friday August 16th at 11 am PT (noon MT, 1 pm CT, and 2 pm ET). Put it in your calendar now so you remember.

Let’s see what we can create together!

Extra incentive

I have a copy of Fall of Poppies, signed by authors Heather Webb and Hazel Gaynor, that I’ll give to somebody who really gets into this story creation process.

I Wish You Happy Celebration - Matchmaking for Beginners

Matchmaking for Beginners by Maddie Dawson is one of my favorite books this year so far. Here is the blurb I was lucky enough to write for it:

Matchmaking for Beginners walked straight into my heart, trailing a shower of golden sparkles. Dawson has created a magical world inhabited by characters so engaging and real it seems plausible they might drop by for a cup of coffee. By turns funny, wise, and poignant, this is a story about falling in love—with the painful, messy, joyful business of living.
— Kerry Anne King

And here's the copy from Amazon:

A Washington Post and Amazon Charts bestseller.

Marnie MacGraw wants an ordinary life—a husband, kids, and a minivan in the suburbs. Now that she’s marrying the man of her dreams, she’s sure this is the life she’ll get. Then Marnie meets Blix Holliday, her fiancé’s irascible matchmaking great-aunt who’s dying, and everything changes—just as Blix told her it would.

When her marriage ends after two miserable weeks, Marnie is understandably shocked. She’s even more astonished to find that she’s inherited Blix’s Brooklyn brownstone along with all of Blix’s unfinished “projects”: the heartbroken, oddball friends and neighbors running from happiness. Marnie doesn’t believe she’s anything special, but Blix somehow knew she was the perfect person to follow in her matchmaker footsteps.

And Blix was also right about some things Marnie must learn the hard way: love is hard to recognize, and the ones who push love away often are the ones who need it most.

Enter! You definitely want to read this one.

Epic #LakeUnionAuthors Twitter Party

If you are a Twitterer, you might just want to put Tuesday March 7 on your calendar.

Why?

I'll tell you why. 

Over 30 amazing authors (including me) will be hanging out on Twitter under the #LakeUnionAuthor hashtag, and each one is offering up a giveaway!!
