Didn't get your free copy?
I've received a couple of emails from people who say that they didn't get their Kindle Scout free copy even though they voted for my book. My suggestion is this -

Go to the Kindle Scout website.

https://kindlescout.amazon.com/

Check the top right corner to make sure you're logged in. If you aren't logged in, then log in (should be the same as your Amazon.com log-in).

Once you're logged in, on the top right corner there is a link that says "Your Nominations." Click on that. It will pop up a box, and at the bottom of that box there is a button that says "Past Nominations." Click on that.

My book should appear on that screen, and there should be a button underneath that says something like "get your free copy." Click on that, and it should take you to Amazon where you can get your free copy of "Royal Date!"

If you're still having trouble, you may want to contact Amazon's customer service and I know that they will help you.

I've been nominated for a Swoony!
Swoonys are a reader's choice award over on Goodreads. If you have a Goodreads account (and if you loved "Royal Date," which, let's be honest here, you loved more than Kat loves Battlestar Galactica, right? ;) ), you can go to this site:

Swoony Awards

and vote for my book. You may have to do a search or scroll looking for it. Right now I'm #21, I think.

You can also nominate me for a Whitney Award (this one's more labor intensive).

Whitney Awards

I don't think I've ever actually won a writing award. I've been nominated and finaled a few times, but never a win. I'm afraid I'll become Susan Lucci. (Daytime soap actress who was nominated for a Best Actress Daytime Emmy NINETEEN TIMES before she won. Can you even imagine how depressing it must have been every year to get dressed up and go to a ceremony feeling like you'd never, ever win?)

My website designer (AKA my husband) keeps promising he'll create comments on these blog posts sometime soon so that it isn't just me talking to myself. (Although, let's be honest, even with comments on here it will still probably just be me talking to myself. Which I'm surprisingly okay with.)

ROYAL DATE TO BE RELEASED MARCH 3
Exciting news! Amazon has decided to launch "Royal Date" early. They had originally told me that they were planning on releasing it late March/early April. Then I got a surprise phone call yesterday letting me know that they had decided to move the release up. It is currently available RIGHT NOW for pre-order at Amazon!

If you voted for "Royal Date" during the Kindle Scout process, then you should be receiving your FREE copy of the book this morning in your email! Keep an eye out for it!

Amazon did a press release this morning about the launch. It was pretty awesome being mentioned in an official Amazon press release!

If you get a chance to read it, I'd love for you to leave a review (good or bad) on Amazon and Goodreads.

Thanks again to everyone for all the support. I'm very excited to see where this all leads!

Here's the back copy for the book - does it make you want to read more?

This Cinderella didn’t plan on a prince . . .

Kat MacTaggart is a girl who has a plan for everything—including her holiday ski trip to Monterra with her best friend. Everything is going according to plan until she finds herself careening out of control down a mountainside and being rescued by a guy who looks like Superman’s hotter Italian cousin.

HRH Prince Nico is intrigued by the woman he saved on the slopes and her refusal to date him. He offers Kat a deal—let him show her his country and he’ll pay her to write articles that will help Monterra’s tourism industry. Kat agrees, but given her past and lingering distrust of men, she has one condition—absolutely no kissing.

Thanks to the claims of a jealous British noblewoman and the schemes of a meddling paparazzo, Kat’s rule doesn’t seem to be a problem at first. But the more Kat gets to know Nico and the people around him, the harder it is to remember her keep-your-distance plan. Should she stick to it or risk everything for a chance at happily ever after?

I WON!!!
Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who nominated my book and helped get it in front of Amazon's publishing imprints. They contacted me a couple of days ago to let me know that I had won! I'm in the process now of getting my manuscript ready and I will submit it to them. Once they go through it and make changes/edits, then we'll be publishing in the near future (hopefully).

I really am grateful for everyone's help. I know I'm a writer, but I just can't put into words what this all means to me.

Thank you.
