Hello All! I have a few announcements:
After two years of building a readership of over 900 subscribers to this WordPress blog (thank you!) I finally bit the bullet and built a website http://adeledowns.com/
I know I created my platforms backwards, since authors typically unveil their website first, but I like the freedom and instant communication that comes with blogging. My website allows me to do more with my book page and photography page, though, so the two sites will provide all the flexibility I need to keep in touch with my readers.
I hope you’ll stop by AdeleDowns.com, take a look around, and leave your feedback in the comments section here. I’d love to know what you think of the site.
Today is my birthday (October 6) and my dear husband bought me a professional grade printer so that I can create my own high quality promotional materials. I love postcards and bookmarks and will have lots of fun designing swag with my new toy. Stay tuned for giveaways!
Just a reminder that if you live in Delaware, or within driving distance, that Mariah Stewart, Judi Fennell, and I will be signing books at a cocktail party style book bash at Hockessin Book Shelf on Rt 41 in DE, Wednesday, October 7. There will be wine, appetizers…wine…lively book chat, and books galore.
Here are the details. Driving directions on Google and the Hockessin Book Shelf Facebook page. We hope to see you there!
The winners of the prizes from the INTO THE FLAMES new release book blast with My Family’s Heart Promotions will be announced later this week. Thank you for your wonderful support!

YOU Are Invited!
Join NYT best-selling author Mariah Stewart and best-selling, award-winning authors Adele Downs and Judi Fennell for a casual discussion about romance novels, a book signing, and refreshments at the Hockessin Book Shelf in Hockessin, Delaware on October 7, 2015. I have it on good authority there will be wine. And appetizers! Did I mention wine? And, of course, books offered for your reading pleasure.
Mariah Stewart will chat about her Chesapeake Diaries series, Judi Fennell will discuss her Manley Maids, and Adele Downs will offer her new contemporary romance Lip Service.
Please call the Hockessin Book Shelf to reserve your seat. There will also be tickets available at the door.
Mariah, Judi, and I hope to see you there!
It’s the last day of summer. If you’re like me, you hate to say good-bye.
Thanks for the beautiful memories, summer.
See you next year, summer. Can’t wait.
The consensus of book lovers who attended Contemporary Romance Night at Lady Jane’s Salon Philly was, “We had fun!”
Despite torrential rain with heavy downpours and street flooding, romance lovers turned out for an evening with authors Susan Scott Shelley, Judi Fennell, and Adele Downs at Main Point Books in Bryn Mawr, PA and gave us a warm welcome. Susan read from her book Rekindled, Adele read from Lip Service, and Judi read from What A Woman Wants. We sipped wine, nibbled chocolate, gave away prizes, and had lots of laughs despite the weather.
