So Much Fun at #CalReadin! #CalDreamin

The organizers did an exceptional job of putting together an incredible and first-ever California Readin’ event. It featured 60 authors and more than 250 readers, and from 1:30 to 4:30 we had FUN. Yes, with all capitals! 🙂

I’m back today for the remainder of the California Dreamin’ — the writer conference portion of the event — and will be giving a talk about indie publishing with my pals Elena Dillon and Tracy Reed.

Wish us luck!

Here are some photos from the California Readin’ event and book-signing:

Here’s the reader table Jenn LeBlanc and I shared:




California Readin’ This Weekend! #CalReadin #CalDreamin #amreading

The Cal Readin’ reader appreciation event is only 4 days away, and I’m getting super excited!

The gifts for the readers at my table are all packed up and ready to go, and I just put the finishing touches on the prize I’m giving away. I have to admit, I was tempted to keep all these treats for myself!

If you are one of the lucky ones with a ticket, I can’t wait to see you there!

If you don’t — but you live in or around Orange County, Calif. — come check out the book-signing after the event. It runs from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m., it’s free and open to the public, and it’s a great way to meet the event’s 60 featured authors!

Hope to see you there!

THE GIRL ON THE VAUDEVILLE STAGE Gets Top Billing! #CalReadin #AmReading

Have you seen it yet? THE GIRL ON THE VAUDEVILLE STAGE received top-row billing in Barbara Vey’s blog post about the upcoming California Readin’ reader appreciation event! Whoo-hoo!

You can see it here:

I’ll be signing both books in THE DANCER CHRONICLES at the book-signing event that will take place directly after the reader appreciation event.

If you haven’t read THE GIRL ON THE VAUDEVILLE STAGE, here’s a bit more about it:

by DeAnna Cameron

The magic that happens onstage is only half the story. Go behind the red curtain, and follow Pepper’s wild vaudeville adventure…

New York City in 1907 is a wonderland of endless possibilities for anyone who dares to dream, and no one has bigger dreams than young Pepper MacClair, a struggling vaudeville chorus girl who craves the Broadway limelight.

When Pepper must choose between the love of her life and her beloved Chance Theatre, a run-down venue well past its prime and her home for as long as she can remember, she’ll discover real life doesn’t always go according to script.

She’s left heartbroken and betrayed. But as the larger world changes around her and she is pulled into the intrigues of the city’s elite, it is her last hope, not only to fulfill her dream, but to follow her heart.

THE GIRL ON THE VAUDEVILLE STAGE is a richly drawn historical tale that takes readers behind the scenes of the exuberant, exciting, and often eccentric world of early New York vaudeville and one woman’s romantic journey to find the life she craves and the love she deserves — with a little help from the legendary showman Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr.

Here’s a little more about the books:

SHIMMY FOR ME (Book 1: 25,000 words)

One passionate night. Two lost souls. A whole world of trouble…

Juggling two jobs to keep her belly dance studio afloat keeps Abby Anderson’s mind off her shattered love life—until a painful anniversary sends her into the arms of an anonymous stranger she plucks from the audience of her tribal belly dance show. No names, no strings, no romance. She tells herself it’s a harmless hookup.

Until he turns up at her day job . . .

Derek Collier, the sexy heir to the Collier media dynasty, just landed everything he’s always wanted: the publisher’s seat at the Orange County Herald. Except his first order of business is to sell the newspaper. Reeling from his family’s betrayal, his only comfort is the memory of that mysterious belly dancer and the perfect night they spent together.

He won’t rest until he finds her again.

She’ll lose everything if he does.

DANCE WITH ME (Book 2, 52,000 words)

Love means nothing … until it means everything

To ambitious belly dancer Melanie Drake, celebrity drummer Taz Roman is a self-absorbed playboy she prefers to avoid… until he makes her a tantalizing offer.

He needs someone to pose as his live-in girlfriend to get his meddling sister off his back. In exchange, he’ll coach her through the upcoming Belly Dance Divas’ audition.

But when Melanie’s fake feelings turn real and their secret backfires, she discovers Taz isn’t the man she thought he was. Will the deception destroy them both, or will she find the courage to fight for what she truly wants?

ANOTHER DANCE (Book 3, 10,000 words)

Life couldn’t be better for celebrity drummer Taz Roman, and it has everything to do with his new girlfriend, Melanie Drake. They’re in perfect sync—onstage and between the sheets.

He’s convinced love might finally be on his side. She’s not so sure. The sex is great, but the closer they get to embarking on their world tour—with all those adoring and beautiful fans who clamor for his attention—the more she wants to do what she’s always done and run.

Will a sexy night of passion be a final farewell, or can it finally bring them together for good?

Get a Tasty Treat — And Help a Great Cause

I LOVE to cook, and I’ve always wanted to create my own cookbook — but I’ve just done the next best thing. I teamed up with more than 20 authors to create LOVE KISSED COOKING: Recipes From Your Favorite Romance.

Inside, you’ll find 26 recipes for drinks and dishes featured in our books, including MARCO’S CHRISTMAS WISH COCKTAIL, which plays an important role in JINGLY BELLS. You’ll also get some tasty book excerpts that are sure to whet your reading appetite.

LOVE KISSED COOKING will be available for just a few months, so please grab it while you can. The price is only 99 pennies, and the best part is: All profits are going to the Salvation Army to help families in need.

I’m looking forward to creating the delicious dishes inside — as well as gifting it to my food-loving friends — and I hope you will too.

Happy cooking, mixing, baking, and reading!
