Six Weeks to Release Day and Counting! Want to Help Me Promote the Book?

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Follow the Heart Small CoverI’m starting to get really excited about the upcoming release of Follow the Heart, book 1 of The Great Exhibition series with B&H publishing.

Set in Oxford, England, in 1851, Follow the Heart is a stand-alone historical romance. Katharine Dearing, an American whose father has lost the family fortune, is sent to England to marry wealth, but finds herself torn between the poor man she thinks she’s falling in love with and the viscount who offers the wealth and stability that can save her family. Will she fulfill her family’s mandate to marry money or will she follow her heart?

The Great Exhibition series fits in with my contemporary series (The Brides of Bonneterre and The Matchmakers series) for being light-hearted, stand-alone novels which are tied together with recurring characters and a comfortable and familiar yet unique setting. These books will also sit well beside The Ransome Trilogy as historical romances that fully immerse readers in the language, fashion, and details of the historical era. And each book fulfills my promise of “Humor, Hope, and Happily Ever Afters” that readers have come to expect.

If you are interested in reading an advance digital ARC of Follow the Heart for review, please let me know and I can send you that information.

If you would be interested in featuring the book on or around its release date of May 1, 2013, with a blurb or interview with me, I can send you a document containing a bunch of questions/answers—or feel free to send me your own questions. The document contains links to the book cover and my headshot, along with the back cover copy, my bio, and other information about the book and about me.

I’d love to hear back from you if you’d be willing to help spread the word about my new release.

Thank you!

    I will help in whatever way you need. I always pass along your books as “you should buy this” to our school librarians. Please let me know what else I can do!

    I’ve already read an ARC (excellent!), and have scheduled my review for 3 May… which will still only be 2 May for you, because New Zealand is about 16 hours in front of the US.

    I do include the book cover in my blog reviews, but if you’d got any other information you’d like me to include in the blog post, please email.

    Question (which you don’t have to answer!): I find a lot of historical novels written by Americans or Canadians set in England have cultural errors, such as English characters who sound American because of the vocabulary they use (e.g. weighing in pounds). Follow the Heart doesn’t… how do you prevent that, and what advice would you give authors to make sure they get it right?

    Hi Kaye ~
    I’d love to help spread the word about your upcoming book, so please, count me in!
    Would you please send me your bio and information? I’ll do a review, but I want to buy a paperback when it comes out. Will that work?

    Hi Kaye,

    I do reviews and interviews on my blog so I would be happy to do both/or, whichever works best. My first open day for an interview in May is the 15th, but I could do a review earlier in the month. I do have set of questions prepared but we could use yours if you would be willing to add one of mine. The focus of my blog is Genesis 50:20, so I always ask the authors to share what a call a Genesis 5020 from their lives (something the enemy tried to use to harm you but God turned it around for good and His glory…the tag line on my blog is “My Story for His Glory.” Please email me if you woud like to help out, I would love to read your book.
