Top five things on your bucket list
(this post is based on the Marketing for Romance Writers 52 Week Challenge)
I went to a wedding this weekend.
Bride’s side or groom’s?
None of the above. The only person I knew was the minister, but I was the guest of honour.
In my other life, I work in marketing. We take things like anti-spam legislation seriously. So the EU is launching new privacy legislation on May 25 and what it boils down to is that if you’re in Europe, I need you to explicitly sign up to receive emails from me. Even if you’re already on my list, I need you to sign up again.

Please know that I will only ever email you book-related news, giveaways and announcements. I will never give or sell your information to anyone else. In exchange, all I’m asking you to do is clicky click the link and follow the super simple, super quick instructions.

In my debut novel, The Pick Up, Kyle is a single dad who has moved back to his hometown. Kyle would tell you he’s…
