Ads on new sites!

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to share with you that I've increased some advertising in hopes the word gets out about my new novel! I've signed on with Eye On Romance and Manic Readers and my ads are going out with their newsletters so I'm hoping for more traffic to my sites and sales.

One can only hope, but it's the readers who make the author reach the top. I have confidence in my readers and in those who try me for the first time. Please share my site and my novel with your friends, so they tell their friends. An author needs to be able to hold the reader's attention and keep them turning pages. I hope, again, that I've done this for you.

Think of the books you've read. Are there some characters who refuse to leave your mind AFTER you're done reading? Do they linger, making you relive the novel so they stay alive in your mind? LOL I hope I've been able to create that with my characters. Let me know if that's happened. I'd love to hear about it.

Enjoy your summer, it's only getting started. Happy reading!

Never Surrender paperback IS coming!!

I know I haven't posted as often as I should for those who keep in touch. I'll do better!

I'm so excited and want to share with you the fact that Never Surrender has been uploaded to the printer and the cover is waiting their approval. As soon as the cover is approved, in the next few days, the book will be released for paperback! What an exciting day that'll be for me. I've waited years for this to happen and owe it to Mystic Moon Press for taking a chance on me. I'd like to show them that it WILL sell and their chance on me will pay off. For that to happen, I need your help and that of your friends who love to read. The paperback can be order from the bookstore at or go to my website and click on 'buy now' next to the cover of Never Surrender. Of course, you can still get it from Amazon, Fictionwise, and other sites out there.

The next manuscript to be sent to Mystic Moon Press will be an historical romance set in England with ships, dukes and pirates and of course, a strong heroine! You can also read more about this and my other manuscripts in progress on my website. Stop by, roam along the beach there or sit back in one of my chairs and enjoy my site for a few minutes. Please send it to your friends, join my reader club, subscribe to this blog so it arrives in your email each time I post. Check out my upcoming events. I'll be doing an author chat on June 20th and the 30th, each at different sites so check them out.

I so appreciate my readers. None of this would be possible if the readers didn't visit my sites. Thank you so much. Please enter my contest for a goodie bag filled with bookmarks, a Deanna Jewel t-shirt, other items from me and a copy of Never Surrender either in e-book or paperback.

I look forward to hearing from you, reading your posts here, in my guestbook on the website or in my email. Again, THANK YOU for reading!
