Hi everyone! I love October. Along with June, it’s one of my favorite months. J’adore autumn!
This month I’m planning my BIG 10th book release party and signing for Never Trust a Pirate in May 2017! It’s going to be a giant bash in my hometown of Jacksonville, FL and you’re all invited. If you’re in the Jacksonville area in May, I’d love to see you! Stay turned for more details. I’ve seen the first draft of the cover of the novel and I can’t wait to share it with all of you.
What I’m Writing…
I just started writing Meg and Hart’s story. Playful Brides book #8 doesn’t have a title yet but it’s inspired by Romeo and Juliet. You’ll meet Meg and Hart in Berkeley’s story, The Legendary Lord, which comes out on 11/1. I can’t wait!
Have a fabulous October and thank you for reading my latest news!
Hi everyone! This month I have a lot of things happening.
Historical Romance Retreat
First, I’ll be at the Historical Romance Retreat in Spokane, WA from September 22-25. I can’t wait to see Spokane (I’ve never been there before) and meet all the fantastic historical romance readers who’ll be attending. If you’re in the area on Saturday, September 24th, I hope you’ll stop by the book fair and signing from 1-4:30 pm at the Davenport Hotel and say hello. I’d love to see you!
Pre-order a SIGNED copy of The Legendary Lord
Beginning September 1st, I’m teaming up with Author-Author to offer SIGNED paperback copies of The Legendary Lord to those who want one. I’m so excited about this! All you have to do is go here and order a copy. You should get your signed copy the release week (11/1). I will even personalize it to you. How cool is that? This is a limited time offer since we need time to get the books signed and mailed out before release week so please be sure to order by October 5th if you want a signed copy!
A BIG FUN #PLAYFULBRIDES CONTEST!
If you visit my website, you’ll see a new CONTEST page there. I’m teaming up with Writerspace to provide a monthly contest for my readers to win books and swag. In September, the contest grand prize is a signed set of the first five books in the Playful Brides series. How fun is that? And three lucky runners up will win signed copies of book #5, The Untamed Earl. To enter, just go to the CONTEST page on my website and follow the instructions.
What I’m Writing…
In August, I finished writing Never Trust a Pirate, book #7 in the Playful Brides series. It’s Cade Cavendish’s story and will be out Spring 2017. Next, I’ve begun writing Collin Hunt’s story. It doesn’t have a title yet but it’ll be a novella that I plan to publish around Christmas.
Have a terrific September and thank you for reading my latest news!
Hi everyone! I’m just back from the Romance Writers of America conference in GORGEOUS San Diego, CA where I enjoyed seeing readers, authors, and my editor and agent, all while enjoying some of the most lovely weather this country has to offer.
This August, I’m excited to announce that for the first time, three of my novellas are being offered in a bundle for one low price. If you haven’t checked them out before, I hope you’ll do so now.
What I’m Up To…
I’m wrapping up writing the next Playful Brides story. It’s Cade Cavendish’s story and it’s going to be called Never Trust a Pirate! It’ll be out Spring 2017 and more details will be on my website soon. After that, I’ll be writing Collin Hunt’s story as a novella.
Have cool August and thank you for reading my latest news!
If you’re in the Southern California area, I hope you’ll come to the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina on Wednesday, July 13th from 5:30-7:30pm to meet me and a huge group of romance authors signing books at the National Romance Writers of America (RWA) conference. The proceeds for the annual Readers for Life Literacy Autographing go toward promoting literacy in the U.S. It’s a great cause and fun time. I hope to see you there!
Have a fun and safe July and thank you for reading my latest news!
This month, I’d thought I’d share with you a bit about what I’m writing. There’s no official title yet but I’m working on Cade Cavendish’s book which I pitched to my editor as, “The Scarlet Pimpernel meets Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, in which a French lady’s maid and a spy who is a master of disguise foil a plot to bring Napoleon back from St. Helena while uncovering secrets about each other and falling in love.” What do you think? I’m having the *best* time writing it! It’ll be out Spring 2017!
What (Else) I’m Up To…
I just finished editing The Legendary Lord which is Lord Christian Berkeley’s story and comes out November 1, 2016. I’m happy to announce that I’ll be sharing chapter one on my website very soon!
Have a fantastic June (my birthday month!) and thank you for reading my latest news!
This month, I’m thrilled to announce the release of The Untamed Earl! It releases on Tuesday, 5/3/2016. It’s a Regency retelling of The Taming of the Shrew, only this time the “shrew” is a rogue. (wink)
It’s gotten great reviews including one of my favorites from RT Book Reviews saying, “Bowman delights with a humorous tale that could come straight out of a Shakespearean play. The charming characters are well developed, their cock-eyed motivations are clear and the plot moves quickly, wrapping readers in an enchanting romance.”
