MR. FED-EX GUY CAME TODAY!



I am so delighted to announce the arrival of Tender Vow, a stand-alone contemporary romance. You can check the synopsis if you scroll down on your left to my book listings then click on Tender Vow.

There's just nothing like the excitement an author feels when the book he/she has labored on for months returns from the printer and arrives in a nice big carton on said author's doorstep. You rip into that box like you had a ten-second window till detonation, rather like a 10-year-old tearing into his Christmas presents. It's just fun, no other word for it.

So, in honor of my fun--you wanna do a giveaway? It's easy to participate. Just leave a comment here, I'll copy your name and throw it in "the hat", and then we'll have a drawing on MY BIRTHDAY, August 26, how's that? So come on, help me celebrate. You know you want to!

Love to ALL of you!
Shar

Your books are always such a treat! I would LOVE to be one of the first to read your latest. Having edited a couple of cookbooks, I remember the thrill of opening the box when you get those first actual copies. It is such a sweet reward for all the hard work.

Hey Sharlene,
Congratulations on your new book. I can imagine it must be very exciting for an author to take his/her first look at the fruit of such intense labor. You write beautifully and I've enjoyed reading all of your books.
Hope you have a blessed Lord's day tomorrow.

Hey Shar...

Have enjoyed all of your books since Olivia became a part of the MacLaren family! They are soothing, like curling up on a cool autumn evening, fireplace crackling...and lavishing in the "comfort food" you prepared just for me :)
