    Bouncing into 2014 with a Giveaway!

    Happy New Year once again friends (ok I’ve taken my tree down and it’s been a week so I don’t think we can say that much longer). Anyhoo!!! So here we are and still we’re not all flying about in our Jetsons like cars (now there’s a bit of a letdown for you from the old Saturday morning cartoons). Oh well, if that’s all we have to complain about with the flipping of the calendar, I’d say we’re pretty lucky. As it is I’m sure we could each go on with lots but I’m feeling like now is the time to celebrate, count blessings and look to the future or BOUNCE to the future. Kicking the old to the curb and welcoming the new.

    2014 should be quite the busy and exciting year with my 1st self-published novel: BOUNCE just released and come February I will have my final book in my Crimson Series called THREADS OF DESIRE out (can’t wait for you all to read that one).

    Yep, so there is much to celebrate going forward and I want to share the joy of my new ventures with you my friends and followers with a BOUNCE with me into 2014 Gift Card Giveaway! So click away for your chance to win.

    Entering is easy. Just click away for easy entries, you can tweet about it, follow me on Facebook, sign up for my newsletter to keep up with my happenings for another and answer the question: what are you Bouncing towards in 2014 for another.

    Please share this link and tell all your friends about my BOUNCE giveaway. I hope you’ll take a chance and give BOUNCE a try. It’s an exciting new voice for me and I can’t wait to share Sabrina’s story with you all.

    Growing up as a young girl, Sabrina Jacobs could only dream her life would be this good. She has a successful career, a famous sexy husband, two children, a house in an affluent Westchester suburb and a shoe collection worthy of a magazine spread. Too bad it’s all a façade.

    It has been almost a year since her husband admitted he had an affair with a younger and bouncier coworker. Follow Sabrina as she tries to rein in her out-of-control life by kicking her husband out on his rear, chucking her career and even firing her too-cute-for-the-job nanny. But how will she survive as a stay-at-home mom in the land of designer clothes, designer kids’ parties and designer babies? Hmm… maybe the hunky young French teacher, who has been flirting shamelessly with Sabrina, is just what she needs to take her mind off her problems. Well, not if her husband has something to say about it. Will Sabrina be able to forgive and still be true to herself?

    Now let’s  BOUNCE into 2014 with a renewed pep in our steps!

    Bouce Your Merry Way!

    It’s now official, as of yesterday, I am an indie publisher.

    Whee! BOUNCE is live and for sale! Talk about a long time coming and what a way to have myself a Very Merry Christmas and welcome in 2014 with a Rousing Cheer.

    I can’t express how excited, nervous and all around feeling every emotion a person could possibly feel in the moment. It’s like I’m standing on the edge of the highest cliff imaginable with nothing below me but green, ocean, sky  and possibilities and nothing to guide me in my flight but my little hand painted wings that I’ve fashioned out of children’s kite material and some string.

    Ok, so maybe I’m being a little dramatic here. I’ve know I’ve got a lot more behind me than I think I do, I just have to convince my gut of it. Right now it’s just a belly full of butterflies and no net to be had. But really I know I’m lucky. I have family and friends, critique partners, beta readers, formatters, loop groups, cheerleaders and boosters all there, puffing up my wings and watching to make sure I don’t spin out of control. Oh the joy!  I am one happy woman.

    All that said… I hope you’ll give BOUNCE a try. I have a feeling being a hybrid author in 2014 is going to be a wild flight.

    Bounce with Me!

    Excitement, nervousness, cold sweats? Yep I’ve got em’ all! Why you ask? Well because:

    1. Christmas is a week away and I have 1/2 a tree up, 1 twin to still pick up from school, no gifts and nary a card sent out.  And…

    B. I’m preparing for my debut… first ever…. never done by me before… self published novel release due out as an e-book later this year!

    Gulp and oh my, but let’s add in there a exuberant hooray! I’m thinking this this will be some thrilling way to end 2013 and start out 2014. Yesterday I had an exclusive cover reveal over at the wonderful Heroes and Heartbreakers blog and now I can share the amazing cover designed by Mae at Cover Fresh Designs I hope you like it.

    Ladies and Gents…. BOUNCE…

    Threads of Desire… Cover Reveal!

    Cue the horns and grab your confetti the time is here! It’s the big cover reveal for my final book in my Crimson Romance self proclaimed Creative Hearts series called: THREADS OF DESIRE due out at the end of January 2014.

    In this book we meet, Gabby the sexy, sassy and curvy fashion designer who just so happens to be the best friend to Samara my heroine from SEDUCTION’S CANVAS. Being a former fashion designer myself, I can’t wait to bring you into Gabby’s world.

    And now a bit about THREADS OF DESIRE:

    Sexy, fashionista Gabrielle Russell has been challenging Nick Ross most of his life and now is no exception. A top financial analyst, Nick has been dating his boss’s daughter and he’s on the fast track to turning his five-year marathon into a three-year sprint. But life throws him a curve and when he finds his perfect girlfriend curled up in a very un-zen like position with her yoga instructor. Faced with this awkward downward dog, Nick heads to the only place he can think of—his brother Steve’s place—only to be stuck face to hips, thighs, lips, just about everything with his roommate, Gabby. She’s the habit Nick just can’t shake. The one that got away and she won’t let him forget it. 

    Gabrielle Russell is frustrated. She’s been banging it out for years as a curvy girl trying to make her creative mark the exclusive world of New York fashion and she’s hit a brick wall both personally and professionally. Now stuck in a dead end job designing jersey pantsuits for wannabe mafia wives while dodging the advances of her boss’s son, she doesn’t know how to get out of the hole she’s dug for herself. At least she has a bit of peace in the small apartment she shares with her childhood friend and roommate, Steve. 

    Or she did until Nick Ross walked in. Mr. Perfection and her own devastation, the one that broke her heart and almost broke her spirit, and now here he’s back and looking for a place to camp out while he gets his life back on track. Well, she’s got news for him: She’s not the same girl she was all those years ago when just a look would send her heart stuttering. Okay, maybe she is, but now maybe it’s time the tables were turned on the unflappable Nick Ross.

    On Stage- Me at Lady Jane’s!

    Those who have followed me for a while on ye old blog know what a fan I am of Lady Jane’s Salon, the monthly romance reading series held here in New York and now branched out in satellites all over the US. Well, since its inception Lady Jane’s quickly became my monthly getaway where I got to meet up with friends who were also lovers of the romance genre and hear some of my favorite authors whom I have long admired read from their newest works.

    Well last night, and I still can’t get over it, it was my turn. Nervous doesn’t begin to express my feelings as I hit the Lady Jane’s stage since I’d been nervous for weeks and months leading up to the event. But looking out it was a pack house full of so many supportive friends, including my dear DH (we were enjoying our 24th anniversary last night too) and I went for it.

    20131007_195504

    And I survived. I even got a few laughs. My 8 minutes were up before I knew it. I said a few words, read from THROUGH THE LENS and was back by my dear’s side in no time. Finishing my drink. Whew! (here we are below with Ron Hogan who announced our anniversary).

    20131007_195349

    I can’t say thank you enough to all those snubbed their noses at Mother Nature and packed the house out ( and it was packed) and came to see Sara Jane Stone, Leslie Caroll, Jes Young and little old me! Thank you so much and thank you once again to Hope, Ron, Leanna and Maya for all the support and the continuous support of the romance genre.

    3rd Time’s a Charm

    In what seems almost unbelievable to me, yesterday afternoon I typed THE END, yet again, and then took the big, scary leap into the abyss and pressed send as I sent BOOK 3, my final book in my Creative Heart’s series (tentatively set for a January release), off to my editor at Crimson. In true Kwana form, as soon as I pressed send, I immediately wanted to find that magic button that said RETRACT, but guess what? There is none (why oh why doesn’t the internet have a 5 second rule? Imagine how many reckless mistakes could be avoided with just this one little button. How many eyeballs could be spared the runaway hot dogs). Oh well, it’s GONE now. And all I can do now is sit back and stew as I await the verdict on it. In the meantime I already have new ideas percolating so I guess the keyboard won’t have long to cool off as new characters are already whispering. No rest for the creative weary.

    story 2

    And in a huge bit of coolness check out what I got to hold in my hot little hands…yes, the print version of Book 2, SEDUCTION’S CANVAS! Please excuse me while I drool for awhile and turn into Smeagol from The Lord of The Rings and just stroke and put “My precious” on repeat. Talk about gorgeous. I have to say I’m loving it (and Jack is too) . What a fantastic job on this book and cover. And eek! I’ll be signing some of this and THROUGH THE LENS at Lady Jane’s Salon at my 1st reading on Monday October 7th. What a time to be had!  Check out the details here.

    Big Wheels Keep On Turnin’

    Happy Monday! Don’t go getting all excited about it all at once now. Hold yourselves together. Unbelievable, but we’ve already made it to the middle of the Summer. Suddenly I’m feeling the urge to pump the breaks and slow things down a bit. The heat has been steadily rising and so has the pressure of, ‘get in the Summer fun before the time is done’.
    Speaking of Summer fun… here is my big haul from #RWA13.

    rwa books 2

    Wild huh? Can someone tell me when and how will I get to all these books? And while figuring that out can they also pencil me in 3 more hours into each day? M’kay? Thanks.

    Also looking at the date I’m freaking a bit as I notice it’s now 7/29 which means there are 3 days left where you can get both THROUGH THE LENS (now re-edited for a smoother read, talk about great news!) & SEDUCTION’S CANVAS for the Super Low price of 1.99 over at Amazon.

    Don’t miss out and get them while you can! Who knew Seduction could be had for such a price? Whee!

    And here is a question I haven’t asked in a minute… what cha reading? Please let me know in the comments? Thanks.

     

    Have a great day!
