January 2015

Happy New Year, dear friends! I hope you had a great start into 2015. I stayed at home and had cheese fondue (love it!), after having spent Christmas in Venice. That was a real treat, and my head is still filled with those images . . . which I’m of course putting to paper!

I plan to release my next romance novel this autumn. It will be part of another Christmas bundle because the one I participated in last October (Sweet Christmas Kisses), made it onto the USA Today bestselling list and stayed there for three weeks . . . which was a fantastic feeling! The bundle is still available now, and it keeps on selling, even though Christmas is over — but maybe that’s no wonder since you get 14 novels for the price of one . . . Here’s the link, in case you haven’t downloaded it yet and want to catch up: http://amzn.to/1CEhxBg

If you’ve already bought it and liked all the romances, then this offer might interest you as well: The Sweet Romance Reads group of authors (which is the group that has released the bundle) has a team of reviewers who get free novels in exchange for reviews. You always have six weeks to read and review the novel, and you can have up to three novels at the same time. This is the link to find out more and to sign up:

I also wanted to share two good deals with you:
This week, Gwen’s and my romantic comedy It’s Raining Men is on offer for only 0.99 US$! It’s about a magic umbrella that makes you fall in love, and with the rain we’re having, I think we really need it! If you haven’t downloaded it yet, now’s the time . . . http://amzn.to/1j1ae95

In January and February, I’m also offering a voucher via Smashwords (the e-book distributor), so you can download the first mystery in my series Temptation in Florence, Delayed Death, for free. The coupon code is FY29F – feel free to share this with every friend who likes a good mystery! Here’s the link to Smashwords: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/261146
I would be truly happy if you could review the novels you’ve liked on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo or any other platform. Reviews make a huge difference in the life of an author . . .

And last but not least, I’m already working on mystery #5. The Mantoni family will go on vacation, so the title of the novel is Seaside Death, but that’s all I’m willing to reveal at this point! I wanted to be quicker in writing this one, but back problems forced me away from my computer, and now I have to make sure I do plenty of gymnastics in between my writing bouts . . .

As always, I’d love to hear from you!

Best,

Beate
