AND CELEBRATE the release of you'll always have tara, the second novel in my Riches to romance series!


An attitude of gratitude.  That's what I am feeling.  Three years ago, I was up to my elbows in rejection letters.  Rejection letters from editors.  Rejection letters from agents.  Rejection letters from Colin Farrell (kidding, sorta).  Since then, I have published eight books and met Colin Farrell (not kidding).  My first published novel, Silence in the Mist, was a "wildly enthralling" (Blah Blah Blah...and Books) though widely unread historical romance set during the French Revolution.  Four chick lit novels, two anthologies, another chick lit novel...

...Now, I am days away from the publication of You'll Always Have Tara, my ninth published works.  


I am rocking a major attitude of gratitude -- for my agent, Ethan Ellenberg, my publisher, my editors, Esi Sogah and Helen Hardt, and, of course, YOU, my beloved readers.What better way to show my gratitude than giving back a little?  So, I am sponsoring a mega contest. 

I will be giving away FOURTEEN prizes--one per day for fourteen days!  Be sure to check back each day because the prizes will become more and more fabulous as the contest goes on--there's even swag from bestselling author Helen Hardt.  Enter one.  Enter all.  And don't forget to spread the love, mes amies, by sharing this contest with your friends.  

With much love and gratitude, 

leah marie
