Celebrate with us! ? 

Don’t forget to join in the celebrations at our launch party on Tuesday, October 16 and Wednesday, October 17! A couple of you contacted me, asking what a Facebook Party is, so in case it’s new to you too, let me explain. 

In a nutshell, it’s an online get together on a pre-arranged date and special page on Facebook. People who want to “attend” click the link beforehand to say they’re interested, then click to say they’re going. 

Then, during the party hours on the party day, you go to the link again and it’s “live.” People (in this case, me and the other Love, Christmas 2 authors, in assigned 20-minute slots) post in real time and you reply and respond to posts as you feel moved. The prizes, of which there are TONS, are usually won via random draws. You get your name entered based on easy to answer questions or small tasks. 🙂 Don’t be intimidated. These kinds of events are very fun and very easy! You’ll figure it out, super fast. Still in doubt? Just come! You won’t be sorry. 🙂 (And if you really hate it, LOL, you can duck out right away. :D) 

I’m starting the party off at 12:00 noon PST (3:0 p.m. EST) on Tuesday and really, really hope you’ll join in on the fun at the:  

Facebook Party Extravaganza! 

See you there! 

P.S. Can’t make the party during the “live” event hours? Come by any time Tuesday after 12:00 noon PST until Thursday 7:00 p.m. and scroll around, make comments, get entered in draws and have a blast.

I propose a CHALLENGE – with $100 Amazon gift certificate / or a Paypal payment as the prize.

As you know, we are trying to reach the USAT list with our new 99 cent Authors’ Billboard collection “Love, Christmas 2” and we need help in one area.

Of course it’s sales – but not just any sales. We need to sell as many books as possible to readers who support: B&N ~ Kobo ~ iBooks 

Therefore to encourage you, our readers, who buy books at those venues, if you reply with a link showing a purchase from any one of these 3 places, we will enter your name into the Giveaway. You can enter as many times as you have purchase slips. The draw will be picked on Oct 23rd.

The 26 hard-working authors in this wonderful Christmas bundle belong to The Authors’ Billboard, a group dedicated to making the lives of these professional women a little bit easier.

Because we all work together and help each other to reach as many folks as possible, our goals seem more attainable, and we’re a lot happier not having to walk this lonely writer’s road alone.

We’d love to have you join us on our website to keep track of Love, Christmas 2 and the authors who’ve participated in the collection. Since our dream is to make the USAT list, we need a lot of good karma from you – our supporters.

If you haven’t signed up for our weekly newsletter and would like to, here is the sign-up link.

Everyone here at the Billboard wishes you good times and the very best for this coming holiday season, ♥ ♥

Sweet or Hot? What Kind of Romance Do You Read? @AliciaStreet1 #mgtab

When it comes to reading romance, I love that there are so many different kinds to choose from. And once you’ve chosen a genre—contemporary, historical, or paranormal—you have more choices within that. One of those choices is about whether you want the bedroom door open or closed.

In sweet romance you will never see the characters go beyond kissing. In hot romance, you get steamy love scenes on the page. As an author I write both kinds, and as a reader I like having the option to choose according to my mood.

Valentine’s Day is coming and Authors’ Billboard is putting out some great boxed sets to celebrate it. I wrote THE SWEETHEART TEST as a sweet romance that will be featured in the SWEET AND SASSY VALENTINE bundle now available for pre-order.

My book, LOVERS IN TRAINING is a hot romance that will be part of A VALENTINE SHE’LL REMEMBER that is also now available for pre-order.

Both multi-author boxes have both sweet and hot romances with something to please every reader!

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.
