Cue the Commercial

(Me) “Okay, I’ll say right up front, this is an unapologetic promotion for the book I have releasing today. So, if you’re looking for some sage advice it’s probably not here. And I’m sure my more market savvy colleagues would cringe at the way I’m opening this blog post. Okay so scoff…”
(Cue the TV infomercial announcer) “BUT WAIT! There’s more. Stick around through the unabashed promotion and leave a comment for your chance to win a digital copy of BITTERSWEET!”

(Me) “That’s right. Here’s the deal… all you have to do is tell me what you believe makes for a really great romance. What is it that makes you pick up a book and buy it…or in the case of ebooks…what makes you click that “Buy Now” button? Is it the cover? The blurb? The excerpt? Genre?
“Do that, and I’ll enter your name in a drawing at the end of the debut week (12/11). Make sure I have a way to contact you, so I can send you your digital copy.”
(TV infomercial announcer) And, it doesn’t stop there…because Laura has a second…yes, a second book releasing on Wednesday. Come back then for an additional chance to win!”


  1. I love humor in a romance novel, gotta have a little suspense and mystery to kick it up a notch. Not all about intimacy in a relationship but pure heart to heart connection. I don't want to read about phycical attraction but more spirit and soul compassion. My draw to the click button can be as simple as the cover. It makes the first impression, gets my attention and might be what stirs my curiousity and impulse to pursue further. Blessings to you. I look forward to reading your book .

  2. Fairy tales make really good romances. Evil Queens, magic objects, H/H who have to fight for each other. Happily Ever Afters. What's not love.

  3. The cover catches my eye first, but it's the excerpt that makes me click or not. If the sneak peak brushes an emotion, I'm in.

  4. This book sounds right up my alley! Congratulations on your new release :)
