RELEASED!! ** Win a Book!! **

"When I am dead, I hope it may be said: 'His sins were scarlet, but his books were read.'" - Hilaire Belloc


Here are my new stories, released just this morning -- One lucky person who comments on this post will win a copy of "The Unfortunate Miss Fortunes" or a free download of any one of my available stories at "The Wild Rose Press", your choice (Contest ends 8/15/07 at midnight eastern time). Feel free (in fact, consider me on my knees begging) to spread the news of both the contest and my new releases!

Pregnancy Cravings

Patrice would do anything for her pregnant friend, Cathy, even if "anything" includes running to the convenience store daily to indulge her cravings. On one excursion, Patrice meets Joey Sousa, the cashier at the store. Their attraction is undeniable, but awkward: he thinks she's pregnant, she thinks he's dating someone else. Will the misunderstandings keep them apart, or will their chance meeting give birth to happy ever after?


For fifteen years, seven friends have gathered for a vacation at Lake Wentworth, NH. This year is no different -- except this time, Cass Edwards has trouble looking at her best-friend-since-forever Ben Wilson as just a friend. Can two people in search of a future find it in a mutual past? Will love strengthen the bonds of their friendship or destroy them?

Also, if you do happen to purchase one or both of these and then, of course, READ them-- would you please leave a review at the TWRP site?

And, Dru, I haven't a clue if you can download these stories to your PDA, not owning one myself, but I would assume so. Can anyone answer that question for Dru?



Pillar Place: Monarch is getting very exciting! We hatched and released our first butterfly yesterday (yes, I have pictures, but getting them downloaded is difficult)! DD is certainly it was "Cutie". Finally, success!! It appears that we will have somewhere between 1 - 3 more to release today. One is Judy (poor Bob... he's a couple days behind), and DD will have to decide who the others are. What a thrill for all of us. Holding a butterfly in your hand is an amazing thing.


Your Power Bird is a Vulture

You are always changing your life and the lives of those around you.
You aren't afraid to move on from what holds you back.
Energetic and powerful, you have a nearly unlimited capacity for success.
You know how to "go with the flow" and take advantage of what is given to you.

I have to admit to not knowing exactly how to feel about being compared to a bird who eats rotting meat...

I'm so excited for you!! Two in one day! Awesome!! I'm not sure which one to get first, so I'll probably get both so I can settle down to some sigh-inducing reading!!!

Best of luck for lots and lots of sales!

Jen said...

CONGRATS!!! This is great, Marianne!!!

Alice Teh said...

CONGRATULATIONS, Marianne! I hope I'll get lucky. LOL.

BTW, you've been awarded! Come... and pick it up... at... my blog!

Elle Fredrix said...

Congrats! I'll get one of these listed as a Featured Read later today.

As far as the PDA question goes, Yes! I read all my ebooks on my PDA. You just need reading software on it. I download to my PC and when I do my next sync to my PDA, voila!

I've only started reading romances within the last year, but I have to admit, these sound sweet. :)

Charity said...

So cool, two in one day. This is terrific. Congrats, and congrats again. I can't wait to download them tonight.

I got:

Your Power Bird is a Cardinal
You believe that each day is precious, and you spend your times as best as you can.
You see the wonder in small things, and you are often content with what you have.
You life an interesting, colorful life - and you bring color to those around you.
Confident and expressive, you believe you know how to live a good life. You're living it!

I don't mind being a cardinal, but I must say it doesn't sound much like me. *g*

Melissa said...

Enjoy your big release today! I love today's quote.

anno said...

Congratulations, Marianne! This is so exciting... and I look forward to reading both of these very, very soon.

Dru said...

Congrats on your book release.

Thanks Elle for the PDA information.

Your Power Bird is a Swan
You are a truly graceful and gorgeous creature. You easily see beauty in yourself and others. Intuitive and in touch, you can often guess what the future will bring. And you're flexible enough to accept the changes that life has in store for you.

I hope you have a good Thursday.

Melody said...

Hi Marianne! Congrats on your book release.

How DO you write your blurbs? You are soooooo good. That does it... you are officially given the task of writing the blurb for my book. I'll pay you for it, just so I can avoid the agony.

I don't usually ready romance, but the blurbs alone make me want to go and read them (and I think I will, just as soon as I finish the proofread on mine... I'm embarrassed at the errors I'm finding now that I've had it on the shelf for a few weeks... I SWEAR there are gnomes that get in and rearrange the type).
