Erin Go Bragh to my Irish friends. Happy March to everyone. Is it roaring in like a lion, or creeping in like a lamb where you are? Looks like it’s going to be roaring in here where I live—because I just can’t get enough of this bitter cold and snow—not! Hopefully, the old wives’ tale will hold true to form, and by month’s end, spring and gentler weather will be here to stay.
February was a busy month for me! I celebrated another birthday. Got some lovely flowers for Valentine’s Day. Finished up a play I directed for my local community theater (TWELVE ANGRY MEN)—and the production was really special, if I do say so myself.
Plus, I finished up my book for November. CROSSFIRE CHRISTMAS is the new title for the
book that started off as Kidnapped By A Cop.
This one is a holiday thriller with a wounded hero (literally and
emotionally) and a spunky heroine who teaches him about love and trust. So mark
your calendars for CROSSFIRE CHRISTMAS!
In other cool news—I was asked to write a free online read novella that will run throughout the month of June at the www.Harlequin.com website. It doesn’t have a title yet, but it’s going to be a prequel to my August release, KCPD PROTECTOR. You won’t have to read the prequel to know what’s going on in KCPD PROTECTOR, but it’s a free read! So I hope you’ll indulge in some extra romantic suspense starting June 1st.
|Coming in April!|
Also, on the independent front…for you e-readers out there, I’ll be releasing a boxed set of three of my big romantic suspense books under the title, MAKE MINE A MARINE next month. Can you guess what all the heroes used to do for a living? As my dad said, “Once a Marine, always a Marine.” Yes, these are previously published titles—but they’ve been updated and re-edited, and the set will be available at a bargain price! Many of you have let me know that you’d like to see some bigger books from me. So here’s a taste. I hope you’ll love them!
This month I’m continuing to revisit some of my favorite stories and share them with readers. Be sure to check out my Contests & Fun Page http://www.juliemiller.org/contests_&_fun.htm to read an excerpt from PROTECTING PLAIN JANE. I’ve always had a thing for those big bruiser heroes with a heart of gold beneath that gruff & tough exterior. I hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt, too. And enter for a chance to win one of my backlist titles!
So what's the weather like in your part of the world? Still dealing with an arctic vortex? Are plants budding in your yard? Or simply share what is your favorite season of the year and why. I'll give away a copy of one of my backlist titles to one lucky poster.
