Fast Forward - and a CONTEST!

My initial plan for the year was to release one book of my Spring River Valley series every month from January to December…but after releasing JILTED IN JANUARY [back in December actually] I started to think about how much I hate waiting for a new book in a series to come out.

After careful consideration, and because I’m in charge of my own release schedule – I released FIXED UP IN FEBRUARY and MIXED UP IN MARCH earlier this week, so people who enjoyed visiting  Spring River Valley don’t have to wait.

Because I also like sneak peeks and special giveaways, I’ve decided to give away TEN advance reading copies of AN AFFAIR IN APRIL – Book 4 in the series.

So from now until the ‘official’ release date of Book 4 [April 1], I’m going to give away a copy a week, one on every Friday starting on January 25th through March 29th.

Enter to win! To be entered in the weekly drawing to receive either a .pdf or a .mobi/.prc copy of AN AFFAIR IN APRIL, all you need to do is one of the following:

Tweet about any one of the Spring River Valley Books – use the hashtag #SpringRiverValley, or tweet to me at @ClariceWynter about one of the books or the series


If you’ve read one [or all] of the books and left an Amazon or Goodreads review – contact me and send me the link to the review [clarice @] [no spaces]


If you’ve blogged about any of the books or the series or reviewed any of them somewhere other than Amazon or Goodreads, contact me and send me the link to the post

I’ll pick one winner every week [enter once and you’re eligible to win on any one of the ten Fridays!]. I’ll announce the winner on Twitter and at my blog and at Killer Chicks and I’ll send you the format of your choice as listed above.

An Affair in April

Lifestyle reporter Evie Prentice decides the wisest move is to protect her heart when, while on assignment, she lands in the arms of sexy self-defense instructor Tanner Croft, a man with a reputation for charming all the ladies in town.

Tanner relishes the challenge of convincing the prickly journalist to take a chance on him, but when a public scandal gives Evie the opportunity to grab a front page headline, the connection they forged is threatened.

Will a question of trust cool their love affair just when things start to heat up in Spring River Valley?

Yep, I did it!

Just because I can.

Books 2 and 3 of the Spring River Valley series are now available!

You met Audrey Desmond in JILTED IN JANUARY- now you can read her story:

After a string of disappointing first dates, Audrey Desmond figures she has nothing to lose by letting the town matchmaker fix her up with the perfect guy.

Max Shannon isn’t looking for romance when his cousin Cassie ropes him into one of her matchmaking schemes as a stand-in for a last minute cancellation.

Fire and ice conspire to make their first date a disaster, but Max decides he can melt Audrey’s chilly exterior if she’ll give him a second chance. Together they discover a slow burn can ignite flames of passion even during the coldest month of the year.  

Remember Max's roomate, Jared?

Emerson Bartoli’s business trip to the New York City Ad Expo wasn’t supposed to include a sexy stranger in her hotel shower. But how can she complain when he offers to share the room after a mix-up leaves her no place to stay?

Jared Barton’s job is to land a global advertising account, not fall in love with his prospective client’s corporate image rep.

With their jobs and their hearts on the line, can they take a chance on each other and convince everyone that mixing business with pleasure just might be a winning combination?

Want even more Spring River Valley? Let me know!

Hashtag fabrication

I'm a tweeter. I admit it.

I've never been a big fan of social media, but I actually really like Twitter. It's like sound bites for people who read. I like making statements and then going away and coming back later and finding out if people responded to my statements.

I also enjoy making hastags. The other day I came up with two that I think I'll be using quite often, even if no one else does.

Join me, if you want to, in tweeting the following:

#whyIdeserveicecream  - Why I deserve ice cream - Have you been a good egg today? Done a good deed, or just refrained from losing your cool? You deserve ice cream. Tweet about it.


#whymondayssuck - Had a bad day at the beginning of a new week? Typical. Tweet about Why Mondays suck.

See you in the Twitter verse  @ClariceWynter.
