Hello and happy October! For the next 2 weeks it's WORTH THE RISK x 2 around here! Robin Bielman and I are teaming up to celebrate our same titled books and we're giving away $25 Gift Cards. ***** AND a chance to win an Amazon Kindle or a Barnes and Noble Nook. See our Risky Release Party info below for our Contest WORTH entering!
Karma or Wacky Coincidence?
A few years ago I met a wonderful writer whom I mentored and we became good friends. Last year Robin sold her first book! I was thrilled for her, as she is a great storyteller. She was sweet enough to ask me to give her a quote for her book cover, which I was happy to do. But lately, we've both been wondering if we have good karma, or just a bunch of wacky coincidences?
"A smart,sassy, delightfully sexy romance from talented debut author Robin Bielman" -- quote from Charlene Sands
1. Without our knowledge, both of our books were titled exactly the same and we’re from different publishing houses. The evidence is right before you!
2. Both of our feisty heroines have the same name. Robin's heroine in her Worth the Risk is named Samantha Bennett. My heroine's name is Sammie Gold.
Okay, this is getting a little weird.
3. Robin's heroine is a spunky businesswoman trying to make it in the world of heritage protection and my heroine is a Boston transplant trying to make a success of her business, Boot Barrage in elite Scottsdale, Arizona.
4. Robin has a male editor. And I have a male editor. I don't know the ratio, but there aren't a whole lot of male editors in the romance business.
5. In the entire romance world of authors, Robin and I live within 10 miles of each other and both of us married our high school sweethearts!
