Christina’s Corner

Did you notice the new page I’ve added to the blog? “Christina’s Corner” is where you can find information about my official “street team” — and how to join the fun.

The street team is new. It was formed a few weeks ago, and checking in with my team members has already become a fun part of my day.  I’ve shared a few excerpts from my work-in-progress, got some great feedback and ideas, and one team member recently won a spot in the next book’s dedication.

All readers who enjoy my romance novels are invited to join the team.  Here’s what you can get:

  • Sneak Peeks at new stories before release date. As an “advance reader” you’ll be among the first to read and review each new book.
  • Book swag — bookmarks, trading cards, and other promotional items.
  • Members only contests for gift cards and more!
  • Exclusive games and prizes available only to team members.
  • Friendship, fun, and more in Christina’s Corner, a special Facebook group where you can chat with other readers, ask questions about stories I’m working on, and share your thoughts on many different topics.

 

Little Heart

I’d love to have you ‘in my corner”.

Let’s Party!

Just a quick reminder that tonight is the night! It’s time to celebrate the release this month of “No Regrets”, the fourth book of my “Sunset” series.  What’s it about?

Well, what do you do with a “bad boy” character in a romance series? Of all the characters in my fictional town of Sunset, Willie Morse is probably the least-liked.

So, I found him a lovely young woman to fall in love with. I also put him through a lot and made him struggle to prove he was worthy of Hattie’s affections.

I hope you enjoy reading this story as much as I enjoyed writing it, and I do hope you’ll join me tonight at the Facebook “Launch Party” event.

NO REGRETS – RELEASE PARTY

DID YOU KNOW: The phenomenon of the “mail-order bride” began with a woman named Eliza Farnham. A widowed mother in California during the Gold Rush era, she was appalled at the uncivilized qualities of the men around her. To remedy the situation, she placed ads in newspapers inviting young women to come west and marry. Although more than 200 women responded to her ads, only three actually made the trip. Later, the idea caught on and many “matrimonial newspapers” ran photographs and ads to help men find suitable wives.
