Most Highly Favored Daughter Launches!

Happy Launch Day!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and celebrating the release of my newest book, Most Highly Favored Daughter. The book is getting great reviews, which makes me very happy!

While you are here, be sure to check out the raffle to the right where you can register to win some prizes. Tonight, I'm also kicking off the festivities on my Facebook page where you can also win some fun prizes. All you need to do is comment on my posts, and you will be entered in the drawings. The more you post, the greater your chance to win. I will be randomly awarding prizes at the end of the Facebook party.

Below is a sample of the prizes I'm awarding at the Facebook party.

PopularPittsburgh.com, where I'm employed as a writer, was founded by Tom Pollard. In addition to the website, he also owns Tom Pollard Designs, a premiere ornament design company, and he graciously donated some of his beautiful ornaments as prizes. Thanks, Tom!

Tomorrow evening (Nov. 3), I'm also participating in a book event, 2Friends Book-a-thon on Facebook. The hostesses of the site live in the U.K. so I will be featured at 5 p.m. EST. There are numerous authors participating too. Join in the fun tomorrow night and meet some new authors. The event runs through November 6.

Now, back to the novel. Most Highly Favored Daughter is available in paperback through Amazon and Barnes& Noble. If you prefer eBooks, you can purchase it from the Kindle or Nook stores and from Smashwords.

Since Most Highly Favored Daughter concerns a pair of sisters--Cara and Sophia Hawthorne--and their sibling rivalry, I'm soliciting your sibling rivalry stories. Now is the time to reveal those tales of how you read your sister's diary, or how she gave you a disastrous home permanent, or how you tagged along after her everywhere she went. Post those stories here, and the one I find the funniest, I'll be sending a prize. This won't be selected randomly, but on the basis of what I find funny or outrageous. Remember, keep it clean.

Also, if you're a Goodreads member, I'm hosting a Giveaway of Most Highly Favored Daughter on that site too. So there are many ways to win. Have fun and thanks for supporting my stories.

For those who live in the area, I will be appearing again at St. Teresa of Avila's craft show on November 5, and I've added a few new venues too. I will be at St. Louise de Marillac in Upper St. Clair on November 19, 9-3:30, signing and selling books at their craft show. I will also be at LaRoche College's Annual Light Up Night Friday, December 2, from 3-9 p.m., and at St. Margaret of Scotland on December 3 from 9-2 p.m.

Also, if you'd like a signed copy, I usually have a supply at my house. Remember they make great Christmas gifts. Just email me.

Finally, if you like Most Highly Favored Daughter (or any of my other books), please spread the word and review it on the site where you purchased it.
