The Campbells Are Here!

I'm thrilled to announce that HIGHLAND WARRIOR, the first book in my new back-to-back trilogy is now in stores.  It's a big day in the bookstores with tons of great romances being released, so I hope you'll check it out.  I love hearing sightings, so if you are out-and-about and see it, let me know where.  

P.S. I'm being interviewed over at TGTBTU today for their very first DUCK CHAT so pop on over and say "hi."

A special Opportunity for Readers of my Blog!

I'm raring up for the release of HIGHLAND WARRIOR next Tuesday and want to give one of you an opportunity to be the "first on the block" to read it, LOL.  I'll pick one name from the comments on this blog between now and Wednesday the 22nd at midnight PST to receive a hot-off-the-presses signed copy of Highland Warrior. 

So here's what I'm wondering...

I was talking to one of my CPs the other day and we were trying to figure out what it is that draws readers to Scottish romance.  Is it the history?  The gorgeous setting?  The Alpha/warrior heroes?  Or something else?

I was thinking about some of my favorite Scottish authors and I realized I pick up different authors for different reasons.  One of my all time favorites is Kathleen Givens--I love her for the history.  But I also loved Karen Marie Moning's Highlander series and that is definitely because of the sexy, Alpha heroes.  

What Scottish authors do you read (if any) and what draws you to their stories?

That's what RT called us and I think it totally fits.  In case you missed it in my most recent website update, I'm on the cover of RT this month with my two critique partners Jami Alden and Bella Andre.  I'm often asked about critique groups and what makes them work, and the accompanying article gives a little insight into how we've done that.  Hope you'll look for it at Borders (I'm not sure if B&N still carries it?).  I was also thrilled that HIGHLAND WARRIOR received a TOP PICK!  

So this is the point where I start getting nervous excited about my book coming out. Of course, it feels like everyone and their mother has a new book coming out that day, LOL.  I suppose the good news is that people will be in the bookstores!  I'll never forget that my first book came out the same day as the last Harry Potter.  

I'll be making a b-line on the 27th for the new Susan Elizabeth Phillips.  What books are you guys looking forward to?
