Hello, lovely readers!
I’m going to be taking this week off the blog…and will be migrating it to my website. So if you’re visiting right now, you may see a few hiccups as I get everything transferred. But after that, it should (I hope and pray!) all just go automatically there. Say a prayer for me, LOL.
Thanks for your patience!
Actually, I’m not just announcing totes, I’m announcing a whole cute little division. 😉 Bookish Tees and Totes will soon be a store on Etsy as well (once I get lovely photos taken) and for now directs to the T-shirt page on my website. Y’all have already been introduced to my Codebreakers T-shirts…I’ll be adding general bookish tees as well, not specific to my books, and–as the subject line suggests–TOTE BAGS!
Right now I have 6 bag designs–the 4 Codebreaker ones you’ve already seen on t-shirts, and two bookish ones, which read:
It’s Not That I Have TOO MANY BOOKS
It’s Just That I NEED MORE SHELVES
Saved the World / Fell in Love / Won the War / Beat the Bad Guy / Lived Happily Ever After
READ A BOOK
All of these tote bags are and will remain
(I do still have the Library card tote bag available as well, which is a higher priced item–I’m down to a couple of these in stock and will not be ordering me, so when they’re gone, they’re gone.)
Also, do note that t-shirts
are now all on the same 3 colors:
Raspberry, Aqua, and Banana
Okay, y’all, I am SO EXCITED about this one. =) We’ve been tossing around the idea of T-shirts forever but have never actually put it into reality. Last week, though, I decided it was high time I actually put some cotton behind my ideas. 😉 So I’m excited to announce the arrival of Codebreaker T-Shirts!
Here’s How It Works
Right now, they’re set up for pre-order in my store, with a release date of February 10. That date is rather randomly chosen and could shift either direction–the actual deciding factor of when a shirt will go into production is when that design reaches 10 orders (enough to justify buying the screen to print them from). But order now, and you won’t be charged until/unless the shirts are made!
There’s also a pre-order sale going on to encourage those initial 10 orders. 😉 Regular pricing will be $19.99 for XS-XL (2XL $20.99 and 3XL $21.99), but from now until February 10, prices start at $14.99!
Right now I’m only offering 1 shirt style–a V-neck, super-soft, short-sleeve fitted tee that’s 60% cotton and 40% polyester jersey. I have one of these already, and I can assure you that it’s a great shirt! Each design comes in 3 color choices, and I’m offering sizes from XS-3XL. (These are fitted, so they’re a bit snugger than a non-fitted shirt. If you like a looser fit, go up a size.)
I’m starting with my newest books, of course. So currently, the designs being offered are all #TheCodebreakers. Here’s what we have…
Because the question “What’s The Number of Love
?” actually has an answer. 😉
Available in red, purple, and indigo.
Pilot wings and the title our hero hides behind…
Available in olive, mint, and lavender
Our heroine says she doesn’t need a guard dog. Our hero’s reply? “Woof.”
Available in grey, yellow, and aqua
Based on the advice our hero got from his brother that he just can’t shake.
Available in turquoise, raspberry, and peach
Have an idea for another quote for a shirt, for these or another of my books?
It could very well end up on a future shirt. 😉
Coming soon: general bookish, reader-love designs!
Want to share your favorite design to encourage others to buy and push it into production?
Feel free to use any of these images!
I find myself still super-busy with release stuff…plus helping my mom, who just had back surgery last week. So this week on the blog, I’m going to be highlighting some of the fun offerings still waiting for you for the release of On Wings of Devotion!
Tea Party Book Club!
This is the LAST WEEK to sign up for the tea party book club to chat about On Wings of Devotion
! Packages will ship on Friday, so if you’ve been considering joining me, don’t wait too long! As of the writing of this, I have a few seats lefts both on Friday and Saturday.
Friday, January 24
7 pm EST / 6 pm CST / 5 pm MST / 4 pm PST
Saturday, January 25
1 pm EST / 12 pm CST / 11 am MST / 10 am PST
I’ve done 7 of these parties now, and let me just say that they’ve been SO MUCH FUN. There were a few hiccups in the early ones as I sorted everything out, LOL, but we’ve really got the hang of it now. 😉
I do also have a couple scholarships ready and waiting! People have been so very generous this month! So if you’d love to go but the funds just aren’t there right now, consider applying for one of those scholarships.
There’s also a bring-a-friend add-on, so if you and a sister/mother/daughter/friend have both read the book and want to come together (sharing a screen), you can add a second treat package for just the cost of the food. =)
Hope to see you there!
And coming next time, something really fun we’ve been working… T-SHIRTS!! More about that soon. =)
It’s January 7 — and that means it’s Release Day for book 2 in the Codebreakers series, On Wings of Devotion!

Behind the Scenes
I am so excited to get to introduce you to one of my favorite couples I’ve created. If you read The Number of Love
, then you already know Phillip Camden–and you had a glimpse of Arabelle in the hospital scenes too. These two have been with me for quite a few years. I first developed them for a pirate story set in Jamaica of the 1600s…which I wrote, oh, two whole chapters of. 😉 I later repurposed them for a Regency idea…which got a whole seven chapters long before I called it quits. But when I was brainstorming this series, I had a moment of “Aha! I can FINALLY use them!” And I found that Camden
made just as good a grounded pilot as he did a pirate. 😉
I’ve already had several early readers email me to say how much they love the interaction of these two characters, which of course makes my day. There’s something really special about a hero hurting so deeply and a heroine whose calling is to heal. Especially when you throw in an adventurer father, an office full of cryptographers, an admiral that history has likened to a real-life Sherlock Holmes, and a Swiss spy loyal to her German-Intelligence beau. I had so much fun writing this book, and I’m so excited to welcome it officially into the world!
Want a visual of my characters and their world? Check out my Pinterest board for the book!
(I do have a Graphics section on the board, with images you’re welcome to share on any social media, and of course I love re-pins!)
About the Book
Against Every Warning, She’s Drawn Ever Closer
to the Man Known as “Black Heart”
All of England thinks Major Phillip Camden a monster–a man who
deliberately caused the deaths of his squadron. But he would have
preferred to die that day with his men rather than be recruited to the
Admiralty’s codebreaking division. The threats he receives daily are no
great surprise and, in his opinion, well deserved.
As nurse Arabelle Denler observes the so-dubbed “Black Heart,” she
sees something far different: a hurting man desperate for mercy. And
when their families and paths twist together unexpectedly, she realizes
she has a role to play in his healing–and some of her own to do as well.
With Camden’s court-martial looming, an old acquaintance shows up,
intent on using him in a plot that sends the codebreakers of Room 40
into a frenzy. With their fragile hopes for the future in the cross
hairs, Arabelle and Camden must hold on to hope–and to each other–if
they want to survive.
Join Me Tonight!
Tonight I’ll be going live on Facebook, chatting about the book! I’ll share some fun behind-the-scenes, read an excerpt, I’ll be giving away TWO copies to commenters, answering your questions, and more! It’ll be at 7 EST, but if you can’t make it live, don’t worry! The giveaway will be open 24 hours, and you can catch it in my video archives on Facebook or watch on my website!

Tea Party Book Club
Of course this month’s Tea Party Book Club is going to be focused on On Wings of Devotion! I’m offering two dates to get us started and will add more as necessary, in a later month.
Friday, January 24, 7 p.m. EST / 6 CST / 5 MST / 4 PST
Saturday, January 25, 1 p.m. EST / 12 CST / 11 a.m. MST / 10 PST
What’s a Tea Party Book Club, you may ask?
It’s pretty simple–much like a regular book club, we’ll be chatting about the book, so it’ll assume you’ve read it already. But to make it extra fun, it’s also a tea party! I send you a package with loose-leaf tea and treats, including some bookish things like page flags and a pen (so you can mark your favorite parts, of course). At the given time, we all log in to Chime (online meeting software), enjoy our tea together, and talk about the book!
You can purchase the seat and the package for $25, opt to add a signed book, and even purchase a tea party starter kit that includes your pick of a vintage cup, a personal tea pot, a homemade tea cozy, and a spoon. There’s also an option to donate to the scholarship fund–and to apply for a scholarship.
Non-US? I can’t ship you a package, but you can purchase the seat and join us to talk about the book for a reduced price!
Want to share the experience with a friend who’d join you in person? This is perfect for mother/daughter duos or reader friends! Purchase one seat normally, then the bring-a-friend option as an add-on!
Want to book a private Tea Party Book Club for your in-person book club or Library group? I’m happy to put together group rates! Just shoot me an email at email@example.com to set it up!
Spots are already filling up, so act quickly!
And now, the part you’ve probably been waiting for. 😉 As always, I’ve put together two different giveaways–one that’s US only and one that is NON-US only.
