Once Upon a Wedding – COVER REVEAL

Wedding Novella Series - Book 1

Wedding Novella Series – Book 1

As posted today on Authors of Main Street’s Blog – Here is the cover for the first in my Wedding Novella Series, out this summer!


Welcome to my COVER REVEAL DAY!

Once Upon a Wedding will be available June 9th, as part of the newest boxed set by The Authors of Main Street, titled: Weddings on Main Street.

You are cordially invited to attend more than eleven weddings this summer, as told by the lovely writers who brought you the Best-Selling Christmas Anthology, Christmas on Main Street. The reception to our boxed set was beyond our imagination and it seemed only natural to get together again, this summer.

Eleven writers, with distinct voices and brand new tales all surrounding wedding season. Is there anything more romantic than a wedding? Whether you are getting married, in the wedding party, or a guest it’s hard not to get caught up in the magic of the day.

Unless, you are a single, late 20’s gal, who is plain tired of weddings and everyone asking her when it’s her turn. In Cassie Anderson’s case, the magic of the day wears off pretty quick. Granted, it could also be the horrid dresses taking up valuable space in her closet, a closet that wouldn’t even fit her own wedding dress, if she could find a man. 🙂

As Cassie’s friends from high school and college get married and pair up for life, she has high hopes for it being her turn – one day. Even when she does meet someone whom she can’t seem to shake, she fears it will never happen. Every time she sees Dan Simmons, who has gotten very hunky since high school, the spark and sheer magnetic pull between them is palpable – but their timing is always off, way off!

Luckily, Cassie has a best friend, Thad Carlmont, who is her constant companion and date to all of these events, so at least she doesn’t have to go stag. Even if Thad spends most of his time, as her date, trying to score other lonely wedding goers, he makes a better date than her bouquets.

Each time she attends a wedding where Dan is also a guest she wonders, if maybe this time, the timing will be just right!

Check it out on June 9th, and see what happens between Cassie, Dan and the much too handsome Thad.

I am thrilled to be a part of the Authors of Main Street and I know our new readers, and those who already enjoy our work, are going to love this new anthology. Cassie, Dan and Thad are jumping up and down waiting for their chance to meet you, this June 9th, and share the first book in their novella series.

All month-long, this blog is dedicated to cover reveals and sneak peeks, into the novellas that will make up, Weddings on Main Street. So, make sure to check back, ask questions, and get into the wedding spirit with us – all summer long.

New Year & New Stories

Exciting New Year News:

Due to the overwhelming welcome that Christmas on Main Street received, the Authors of Main Street are at it again – even more of us this time. 🙂 I am so excited about this new set of stories, I just know all of our readers are going to love these reads. We are all sharing our plots and character development and I am excited, as a future reader, to get my hands on this boxed set. I am feeling rejuvenated in the New Year and ready to write, excite and make readers feel hope, joy and LOVE!

Writing is such a solitary and often lonely craft, so when you can find a group of supportive and talented writers to share in the experience, as I have, it can only be labeled a blessing. I am thrilled to be working with them again and I can’t wait to see what you all think of the new set.

I wish I could give a teaser, but we have all committed to keeping the new set a secret and giving our blog and newsletter followers the first sneak peeks of the new set…due out around summer. If you want to get the scoop click on the link below and sign up for our newsletter.

Christmas on Main Street Boxed Set, Click for Amazon Preview


This is the time of year when everyone starts to think about being thankful and then they get scared that another year has passed by. Where does all this time go? But I digress, I am supposed to be thankful.

My son is by far the bright spot of every day and he is always the top of my list. Triton is 11 and in his first year of middle school. Between his grades, his attitude and his constant ability to make me smile I am forever in his debt for choosing me as his mother. He will forever be the best thing to happen to me, the best thing I ever do and my greatest prize in this life.

Professionally this year I am lucky enough to be a part of an exceptional group of Indie authors and eleven of us put out a Christmas Boxed Set that has been doing so well on Amazon and Barnes & Noble that it has turned most of us giddy. We have all ranked in the Top 100 Authors in at least two categories for the last week. The number goes up and down a lot by the day, but for me this has been such an amazing experience to see my name and photo in the TOP 100 of any author category. We have also hovered and sometimes gone below #50 of all paid books on Amazon, while keeping a rank of #1, #2 or #3 in three categories over the last week.

Needless to say it has been a great way to start the holiday season and it gives me something new to be thankful for, it takes a little pressure off my son for sure! LOL


Please check out my release What if…this Christmas on sale for 99 cents at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

You can also get a copy of this novella in the boxed set Christmas on Main Street Amazon and Barnes & Noble


Moving Along the Amazon Ranks….Talk about Exciting!!


The ladies at the Authors of Main Street are elated this week, as we watch our Christmas on Main Street Boxed Set rise (well technically fall) on the Best Sellers list at Amazon. For many of us this is giving us hope, after what most in the industry would agree has been a slow sales period since this summer.


As of my blog this morning here are our ranks:

Amazon         Best Sellers Rank: #144 Paid in Kindle Store         (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle         Store)        


The Boxed Set is now on sale for the next week, a treat for the holidays ahead. A treat and a bargain, only $0.99 for eleven great stories of varying length. We have several different genres, western, contemporary, inspirational, etc. It will make a great gift at this price for a reader in your life.

We are so grateful for our readers who have embraced the group as a whole, even if they were only aware of one or two of us to begin with. What an exciting time for an author with big dreams!
