From our hearts to yours – Merry Christmas!

 

 

 

 

 

**This image is a photo of a treasured Christmas village my dad made from stain glass in his early retirement. Every year it decorates my dining room and reminds me of how lucky I’ve been to have had such a talented and gentle man as my father.

For me and my family, this is the season that we go all out, spend way too much money and have one heck of a lot of fun. It’s our time to say – the hell with everything – let’s celebrate. We’re all here and we’re all happy and healthy.

Only this year, there’s one of us who isn’t doing very well and that’s been making me feel so sad… until I called him today. Then my 93 year-old dad, who was taken to the hospital a week ago, cracked silly jokes, argued with me that he wasn’t being cheeky, he was just feeling so much better than he’d felt over the last few days when we’d begun to fear the worst.

WOW!! I can’t tell you the relief I felt. I wanted to jump up and down and yell hallelujah – Johnny’s back!!!  (That’s actually his name  🙂

So now – with a heart full of gladness and a spirit ready to enjoy the coming season – I want to wish you all the same happiness I feel.

In case we don’t tell you enough – the girls and I here at the Billboard – love and appreciate you, our readers and friends. We write our posts to entertain you and put out our books in box sets so you can enjoy our work at a reasonable price. Just like you, we all have families with ups and downs and good times and bad. We’re women with kind hearts who want you to know that we REALLY enjoy having you stop by and read our blogs. And when you leave a comment, it makes our day.

From our hearts to yours – have the best Christmas ever, surrounded by family and friends, love and warmth and… happiness.

May all your dreams come true in 2018!

Hugs,

Mimi

Happy Thanksgiving from your friends on the Billboard!! #mgtab

~Happy Thanksgiving ~

 

This year on the Authors’ Billboard, we have much to be thankful for.

When a group of 30 authors continuously work together, like and respect each other, that’s a truly beautiful thing and something to be proud of.

Over the last year, we’ve managed to support each other in an unprecedented manner, I mean when one of us asks for help, it’s forthcoming. Of course not by all – every time – but enough of the girls kick in so we know someone is always listening and… they care.

Our group, collectively, has put out a huge number of Box sets this year – please visit our Author’s book page on this website – and you’ll see what I mean. I’m particularly proud of our Christmas collections, and by the comments the readers have left on Amazon, they’re well received and enjoyed.

Many of the girls take their turn to write a blog post each month, to share with you special interests they have, giving you a glimpse into their lives, their hearts and their worlds. These posts are fun to read and I look forward to a new one being released most days.

We’ve also built a strong community newsletter – please sign on if you haven’t already done so. We try very hard to provide goodies every Friday that include free books and those on sale. We know how much people depend on authors to be generous and, in turn, we believe our readers pay us back by buying books when their favorite writer releases something new.

In today’s fast-paced, cutthroat world, it’s a lovely thing to be a part of such a warm and delightful gang of ladies who have realized that thirty hard-working souls can have a far longer reach than one solitary person trying to make her way alone.

So – I’m thankful! For the lovely ladies of the Billboard and the folks who support us.

I hope you all have a truly wonderful, family-filled, fun-filled, (and turkey-filled) Thanksgiving weekend.

Hugs,

Mimi                      

P.S. By the way…

We’re having a little shindig on our Facebook page – a Christmas Bash for whoever wants to join us. Believe me, we have a lot of fun at these parties and all the many authors involved have numerous, fantastic Giveaways for the folks who participate. (Eg: A beautiful new Kindle, two $25 Amazon Gift certificates, free paperbacks, etc, etc.) So…please go here and sign in that you’ll be joining us and we’ll look forward to seeing your on Nov 29th and/or 30th. Invite your friends, too 🙂

We found the nicest way to please our readers – Authors’ Billboard #mgtab

Authors are always looking for ways to please our readers and… new avenues to sell our books, especially our back list. Most of those older, yet still wonderful stories had their time in the limelight and then faded, which is a horrible shame.

So… the ladies at Authors’ Billboard have come up with a fabulous way to combine those two purposes that we think will delight our fans. We’ve formed groups of anywhere from 6 to 9 writers and started box collections.

***We decided to keep them exclusive to Amazon where each of these fabulous sets are priced at only 99 cents. And… because they are in the Kindle Unlimited program, those buyers will get them free.

First we separated them in genres like Historical Romance: Rebels, Rogues and Romantics 

Or Contemporary Romance: Unforgettable Romances, Sweet and Sassy and Kiss Me, Thrill me


 Or Romantic Suspense: Risky Encounters and Love on the Edge

Even Paranormal Romance: Mystic Lovers

And then we each chose work that would fit those sets. Because some of us have a lot of product, we were able to add our creations in more than one collection. For instance, I have written over 40 books and was happy to join in with several of these bundles. We have other prolific writers with the billboard who make my inventory look puny. Rebecca York and Carole Mortimer’s accomplishments put mine to shame – they’ve both been honored with RWA awards for their incredible achievements. It’s mind-blowing how many amazing stories have been conceived in the minds of these talented women?

As a group… our aim is to get this wonderful work out to as many people as possible. Make it affordable so everyone can enjoy these seasoned novels. And hopefully find new readers who like our writing and will come back for more.

Exciting News about a new website you need to see to BELIEVE! #mgtab

You know when you move to a new house and everything is different, new to you and kinda fun because it’s a change? Well… that’s how I feel about what I’ve recently been working on.

I finally had my website BELIEVE redone and it’s so much more functional and ahh…chic than the old set-up. In fact on my old blog, Twitter had closed my tweet button down and it was darn annoying. After a number of months trying everything both I and my extremely knowledgeable assistant, Barb Drozdowich, knew to do, we gave up and the new website went from being a “maybe someday” to becoming a reality.

Sometimes a girl’s just gotta stop banging her head on the keyboard. I swear, if you look close enough, you’ll see letters engraved in my wrinkles. And… I know, there’s a faint bluish tinge to the walls in my office :-)))

So come and visit, see the new banner reworked and check out my book’s page and find the freebies at the top. Please accept these gifts and know that I’m happy to share my novels with my friends.

Of course, these aren’t the only accomplishments I can claim. I’ve also written the first two installments of my new Mob Tracker Series, Sweet Retaliation Book #1 is now available in all stores and Book #2 Sweet Justice is also available everywhere on pre-order.
