Bittersweet Farm Biscotti Crisps

Jules is always making something delicious to nosh on, so she thought these chocolate and orange crisps would be very good with a cup of tea on a wintery day after the barn chores are done.

Fly Away With Me New Cover

I've been looking at covers for years, and the styles have changed.  They've become visually more complicated and designed, so I decided to upgrade  Fly Away With Me by trying a new-to-me Photoshop technique.

The great thing about digital is that you can change things again and again.  And I do!

Not Low Maintenance

No, I'm not forgetting Bittersweet Farm for even 1 minute.  I'm just catching up on some of the things I've neglected over the past year.  I'm talking to someone about doing a cover for one of my adult contemporary novels.  And then I reverted to the original cover for this adult contemporary

Falling in love is easy.  Making love work is hard, especially when there are two lawyers and a defamation of character lawsuit involved.

The Blood and Guts Hunt Breakfast puts the Miller sisters' new catering business on the Litchfield County society map. This event is where Viva Miller meets the attractive, successful attorney Joel Bernstein, who just days later becomes the legal pitbull for Viva's ex-, the vile David J. Resnick.

Yes, Viva lies during the deposition phase before the trial. Then there's the unpleasantness when David turns up dead and Viva is the last person to see him alive.  But, what the heck, no relationship is perfect.  Bigtime love is not low maintenance.

Not Low Maintenance

If you'd like a free copy, send me an email and I'll be glad to send one to you.

Bittersweet Farm "BF" Horseshoe Nail Necklace Giveaway

Here is the first neat giveaway for you.  It's a real horseshoe nail I had stamped with the initials BF because you are so totally a fan of Bittersweet Farm, right?

Leave a comment to enter.  You can tell us what you like about the series, the characters, the horses or you can just leave your name and email address.  You can tell us what you would like to happen to the characters in the future, or what you think will happen to them.

Unless you request it, I won't put you on the mailing list.  The mailing list is only to notify people when a book is being released, I don't have the energy to come up with content and funny pictures or recipes for horse cookies because I'm busy writing and goofing off.

The winner of this necklace will be chosen by random.org.

The contest will last 1 week.  Ignore the Rafflecopter thing.  I only put it there so you would have a countdown clock
