Happy 2014!! I had a wonderful 2013. Blessed would be good word for it (though I suppose if we are breathing we are blessed every year).

When it comes to the book world, 2014 is shaping up to be an even bigger year. As of right this second... I have FOUR books planned for release.... in the next FOUR months (thud!) It's going to be a busy time of year :) I can't wait!

The first of the four is a little book called, THE AFTERLIFE OF LIZZIE MONROE. I call it a Civil War/Contemporary/Zombie/Romance/Epic.

(I LOVE THE Cover!)

Basically, it's just cool ;) I'll blog more about it leading up to the release.

But I wanted to do something really neat, something I haven't done before, when counting down to a release. I'm giving away prizes... and not just MY prizes. I've had some wonderful authors donate almost 20 prizes for you guys! It's amazing!

First up.... Jo Grafford.

An award-winning author at Astraea Press, Jo Grafford writes historical fiction about real people and places to spotlight unsung heroes and unsolved mysteries. Her debut novel Breaking Ties, first book in the Lost Colony Series, was released October 17, 2013.

A cursed island, a chilling conspiracy, and an unforgettable love story. The 115 colonists on Roanoke Island couldn’t GPS, skype or twitter their ultimate destination back to their families and friends in 16th Century England. But modern laser technology has finally uncovered a clue - hidden beneath a patch on an ancient map at the British museum - that leads us to their whereabouts. Considered “lost” for centuries, these brave pioneers finally reveal the rest of their story in the LOST COLONY SERIES.

Rose Payne’s world is left in tatters after a disastrous betrothal, making her an easy target for recruiters to the Colonies. Using every cent she has, Rose sails for the New World and a fresh start, vowing to never again fall for a wealthy man.

Returning from a diplomatic tour in London, Chief Manteo is bewitched by the fiery-haired ship’s clerk and determined to overcome her distrust. He contrives a daring plan to win her heart – one that forces her, honor bound, to serve as a slave to his tribe – a plan he prays will protect her from a chilling conspiracy involving murder, blood money, and a betrayal of their fledgling colony so terrifying it can only be revealed in Breaking Ties.
