Beach Book Blast - Day 1

Welcome Beach Bunnies!

The Beach Book Blast is a great way to wring the summer of all its fun before we head into fall. I'm happy to share my romantic comedy, St. Anne's Day, with you.  I've been writing for a while, but St. Anne's Day is the first book that I've released.  I've already had some readers tell me that this is a great beach book.  So I hope you take advantage of the reduced price and select St. Anne' Day to read while you sink your toes in the sand and soak up those last rays of sunshine.   Links are to the right and will take you directly to either Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Smashwords to purchase it. Also, be sure to check out the other books featured at the Beach Blast too. 

A little bit about the title.  The inspiration for it and for the book comes from something that happened while I was in high school.  I went to an all-girls, Catholic high school, and when it came time for the prom, some of my classmates still needed dates.  When our social studies teacher heard us discussing who we could get to take them (brothers, male cousins and friends were targeted species), Sister suggested they say the St. Anne prayer.  We had never heard of it, but it goes like this:

Dear St. Anne, get me a man as fast as you can!

Well, we said this every day before class and every girl who wanted a date for the prom got one.   This must be one powerful prayer.  Recently, one of the readers I found on Twitter who volunteered to preview this book for me before I released it emailed me to tell me that she started to say the St. Anne prayer and has since found herself in a very happy relationship. 

In that vein, I would like to know if you have ever used any "secret weapon"--your world famous cookie recipe, that seductive perfume, padded bra?--to snag a significant other?

Be sure to visit the Beach Book Blast site and those of my fellow authors, where the fun continues! 

  Remember, When it's St. Anne's Day, it's your day too!
