Dragons, Cops, and USA Today

It’s Release Day for Dragons!

DM-DragonsdForgive-750x1125Finally, Dragons Don’t Forgive is available. You will need to forgive me for this emotional story. Early feedback has been wonderful but everyone says they cried. I cried while writing so I guess we’re even. I’m working on book 4 and hoping to have it out in the next few months.

Here’s a friend’s message to me about Dragons Don’t Forgive

“I am nearing the end of the book and I am bawling!!! I’m in such a conundrum. I need to turn the page to find out what happens but I’m so scared of being heartbroken if what might happen happens…”

 It’s Release Day for “The Forever Team”

The Forever Team1Now don’t panic if you’re scratching your head. The Forever Team written as Suzie Ivy came out in the 10-Code Anthology back in January. I took the story and cleaned it up (language, sexual innuendo, i.e. typical cop stuff) to make it appropriate for age 10+ readers. It’s a short story about a female police detective who doesn’t get along with her fellow officers. She’s teamed up with a very special K9 because the dog can’t write complaints about her. I simply love this story and it’s the first of my books my grandchildren can read. It’s available for 99 cents as an ebook and $5.99 in paperback.

Romancing the Paranormal made the USA Today Best-Sellers List!

RtP came it at #49 which means it also made the print edition of U.S.A. Today. Because I live in a small town, I haven’t found a copy but I’m hopeful. It’s pretty cool seeing D’Elen McClain on the list and I made it last August as Holly S. Roberts. What a wild ride and it wouldn’t have happened without readers. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I also owe a huge thank you to the authors involved in this project. You are amazing women and I’m proud to be a part of this collection with you!

USA Today Bestseller “PLAY”

USA today play screenYesterday may have been one of my most exciting days as an author. My book Play written under my Holly S. Roberts pseudonym made the USA Today Best Seller List!

This is something most authors only dream about and I’ve been dreaming about it for years. Someone please pinch me because I don’t plan on waking up.

“Play” was special to me from conception. It’s the first time I used my husband for research. I live with the Wikipedia of football. From playing to coaching to gluing himself in front of the TV, the man has football on the brain. I am the true definition of a football widow which made him invaluable in writing Play.

We sat for countless hours in our hot tub discussing football… what if a player intentionally made a late tackle on the quarterback and another player retaliated? Would someone be thrown out of the game? Would there be an imposed monetary penalty? What would happen in this situation or that one. My DH was so helpful. I would love to say he didn’t laugh at me a time or two but that would be lying. He moaned (and not in the way you think) at a few of the situations I described.

So what changes when you make the USA Today Bestselling List? Actually, I have no idea. I do know I get to place a nice tag line on all my books:
