Life’s a Beach #Giveaway Hop #Giftcard #Sports #Romance

Welcome to the Life’s a Beach Hop, hosted by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It.


The beach is one of my favorite locations! As a former college swimmer, I like to swim 30 minutes in one direction then turn around and head back to my starting point. Sometimes a fear of sharks gets lodged in my mind, but overall it’s more fun than swimming in a pool.

In addition to a gift card, I’m giving away an ebook of my college swimming romance STREAMLINE, set at the beaches of Pensacola, Florida.


Enter on the Rafflecopter.

Thankfulness and #Book #Signing of #Sports #Romance BLOCKED


Happy Thanksgiving, Americans! Any vegetarians out there? I saw this fake ad for organic, free-range tofurkey on Conan and busted a gut laughing:




I’m thankful to all my readers. The fact that people actually use their precious time to read my words means so much to me.

Last weekend I hosted my third book signing in Columbus, at my favorite wine shop.

Thank you to friends for stopping by to support me!

It was great hanging out with friends from:

* Book Club

* My current psychologist job

* My former psychologist job

* Swimming 

The Blocked cover cookies aka shirtless man cookies were a big hit.

Thank you to Eric and Poodle for the flowers!


Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving. Outside the US, happy almost Friday. 🙂

Blocked and Queen City Indie Con

It’s an exciting week with a new release and a fun book event.

My fifth novel, a college volleyball romance, launched on 10/21/14. It’s been a blast to read early reviews, like Mitsy Princell’s “This is one hot, sweet, smart, exciting, and fantastic story!” 

Available HERE for $2.99


I’ll sign print copies of Blocked and my other novels at the Queen City Indie Con.


Each purchase of Blocked gets you a special Blocked cookie in Cincinnati! And I’ll also have Streamline swim caps for my other sports romance about swimming, the US Navy, and murder.


Don’t forget to enter three giveaways for gift cards and books HERE, HERE, and HERE.

Three Intriguing Aspects of Sports Romance

Sports Romance! What do I love about it? I’m at Willow Star’s blog today discussing my three favorite aspects of sporty love:

1. Learn something about different sports.

2. Sporty love scenes. Underwater kisses, anyone?

3. We shall overcome! Taking characters battling conflict to a whole new level. 

What do YOU love about sports romance?

In addition to my swimming romance Streamline, my college volleyball romance Blocked will launch 10-21-14.

First will be Blocked‘s cover reveal tour on 8-25-14, hosted by A Tale of Many Reviews Tours.

Mental Health Giveaway Hop

Thanks to I Am A Reader and Reading in Twilight for hosting the Mental Health Giveaway Hop.


As a psychologist / author (or psycho author), I LOVE the idea of a hop combining two of my favorite things: mental health and books!

I like to write therapy scenes in all of my books, and often feature characters who are psychologists or characters who have mental health disorders (or psychologists WITH mental health disorders). 😉

What are your favorite stories featuring mental health issues? Here are mine, with links to my reviews:

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay

Spin by Catherine McKenzie

I’m giving away two mentally healthy Jennifer Lane ebooks: With Good Behavior (The Conduct Series #1; romantic suspense only $.99) and Streamline (New Adult swimming military romance). To enter, complete the Rafflecopter.
