Hi Everybody,

Win a spa vacation to celebrate my upcoming novel, WALLFLOWER IN BLOOM!

I am beyond excited that one of my readers (and a friend!) will win a 3-day, 2-night spa weekend at the award-winning Lake Austin Spa Resort (Condé Nast Traveler #1 destination spa 2011, no less!), complete with airfare, meals, spa treatments, and a signed first edition copy of WALLFLOWER IN BLOOM.

You’ll be a guest at one of my reinvention workshops and hang out with me at the official book launch garden party.

And 10 runners up will receive a copy of WALLFLOWER IN BLOOM!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to the amazing Lake Austin Spa Resort and my fabulous new publisher, Touchstone, for your incredible generosity.

Just go to my Facebook author page ( to enter! If you don’t see the entry form when you get there, look for the tab on the left that says “Win a spa vacation!” If you’re not on Facebook, you can enter here.

Please spread the word to your family and friends - especially since it will up your chances if you tell them all they have to bring YOU if they win!

And even if you don’t win, I hope some of the rest of you will join us on June 1-3, too. It’s the perfect book club field trip or girlfriend getaway. The place is gorgeous! The food is amazing! The classes are so much fun! And you can come to the reinvention workshop and the official book launch garden party - and you’ll get a free signed copy of WALLFLOWER IN BLOOM, too!

And for those of you who can’t make it this time around, you’ll still get to take the trip vicariously with the WALLFLOWER IN BLOOM characters, because some key scenes are set there. I am so proud of this novel, and I can’t wait till June when you can all read it!!
Good luck, everybody! Talk to you soon!

I LOVED the film version of her book, Must Love Dogs and thus far the book reads JUST as well if not better.  Seems this is one of those adaptations that actually hit the mark. 

I don't know about you, but I'm off to add this new title to MY wish list.
Be sure to check out the book excerpt online at her website for a closer look behind the cover of this upcoming release...and by all means, enter the contest!  You never know, you just might be the lucky reader chosen to attend this amazing event.

*crosses fingers*

Until next time...happy reading!
