Lizbeth Celebrates the Authors of Sapphire Falls Kindle Worlds



****WINNER**** of today's giveaway is COLLEEN C.!  I'll be in touch to get your prizes to you! THANKS EVERYONE!

We’ve made it to RELEASE DAY for “Going Out on a Limb” and I couldn’t be more excited. I actually thought that having a shorter book come out would feel more blasé than releasing a full-fledged novel, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. This new story has me totally excited for so many reasons. Are you ready with your One-Click finger? Hope so, because here’s the link at last to Jace and Miri’s story!
                                         
           GOING OUT ON A LIMB

Did I mention I was excited about this--for so many reasons? Well, there are TWELVE special ones: a dozen mega-talented authors who are sharing the day with me! I am so proud to be part of this group—hand-picked by Erin Nicholas. Every one of us is honored to have moved some of our own families to Sapphire Falls, the town where “people fall in love fast and forever.” 


A couple of my fellow Sapphire Falls Kindle World sisters have sent short intros to their books, just to give you a taste of the crossover stories you’ll find if you go exploring on Amazon. I’m so happy to have the vivacious Meg Benjamin, the uber-talented Kate Davies, and my fave Aussie author Rhian Cahill here today! Click on the links to find not only their Sapphire Falls books, but the books that gave birth to their heroes and heroines!

I’m so excited to be part of a project with these wonderful authors. And I’m really excited to bring some of my Konigsburg, Texas characters north to Sapphire Falls, Nebraska. Will Nebraskans cotton to Texas-style barbecue? And will the barbecue cook find himself a tasty Midwestern sweetheart? Was there ever any doubt?







It’s fun to watch the tough guys fall so I decided to shake [my character] Stone up a little. Sophie isn’t like any previous client, and he can’t seem to stop thinking about her body—and not in the ‘I have to protect her’ kind of way. J The security company Stone works for is run by Ford and Aiden Moreland and they’re part of my Hearts Are Wild series. Their stories are yet to be written but you can get a taste of the Moreland cousins in Mad Love. Crazy Love and Wild Love will be out later this year.




 Chase and Mia were scene partners in high school - but he went off to Hollywood and became an actor, while she played it safe & became the hometown drama teacher. Now he's back in town - is their on-stage chemistry still there? And will they take it offstage as well? *** this book actually isn't a crossover - yet! But I had so much fun writing about these two, don't be surprised if you see them showing up in a future Hollywood-set series!


                 
And check out these amazing names!
           None other than the other new authors in the Kindle Worlds family!



Of course—we wouldn’t be celebrating today without the creator of Sapphire Falls herself. Erin Nicholas is a NY Times and USA Today best selling author. Not only that, she is Heaven’s gift to nice people and a woman of whom I’m extremely envious for her creativity and endless energy. But I love her and, as a bonus, she and I share the same agent. It’s just all-around cool. Check out all of the Sapphire Falls books right HERE!
Now you know all about Sapphire Falls Kindle Worlds and I totally encourage you to pick them all up—they’re quick reads of every heat levels and, as you’ve seen, the author pool can’t be beat. Here's a map of the town to get you oriented!

If you missed yesterday’s post it’s all about my story “Going Out on a Limb.” Look it up for an excerpt from the book. And, for a chance to win the e-copy of my book and your choice of any one of the others in the series, just leave me a comment telling me which other story you’d choose or what covers intrigue you. By now you’ve noticed the GOING theme—tell me which ones capture your interest!(Open to International readers, too!)

For my last shameless plug—here’s the link once more to “Going Out on a Limb.” And if you’re intrigued by the hero Jace, check out the novel where he shows up for the first time, “The Bride Wore Red Boots.”  And THEN? Check out all the Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys brides novels!

Thanks for celebrating my first Kindle Worlds release with me this week. Hope you all enjoy the stories!
