Contemporary Romance Night at Lady Jane’s Salon Philly @LadyJanesPhilly


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.

Thank You Readers, Subscribers, Reviewers!

Over the holiday weekend, our family kicked-off the unofficial start to summer by celebrating our grandson’s first birthday, watching as he ran around the party room on toddler legs, wondering how the year flew by so fast.


The weekend brought other surprises for which I’m grateful. My fantasy romance novella HER IMMORTAL VIKING received hundreds of unexpected tweets from readers, reviewers, and other authors to spread the word about its feature appearance on the MFRW book blog. Many others tweeted about my new release LIP SERVICE. Thank you for your wonderful support.

The weekend also brought lots of new followers to this blog. Since the 2013 inception of Down To Earth Romance 817 people have subscribed. Thank you! I’d love to hear your comments about what I’m doing right, and would especially love your suggestions for future posts. What do you look for when you visit here? What more would you like to see? Don’t be shy. Tell me.

I wish you the best summer, ever.

Join Me-International Short Story Month! #shortreads @ShortStoryMonth

May 2015 is the third annual International Short Story Month, inspired by April’s National Poetry Month, which began in 1996. Short stories have made a huge comeback with the introduction of ebooks and e-readers and some claim we’re poised for another “short story golden age.”

Do you read and enjoy short stories? Personally, I love them. Short stories give us the opportunity to try an author’s work without a huge time commitment or financial investment. They’re also a great way to follow authors who write both shorts and novels. I happen to be one of those authors, and would love for you to try my books if you haven’t yet. My Lunchbox Romance short stories from Boroughs Publishing are KISSING HER COWBOY and its standalone sequel HER CHRISTMAS COWBOY; both with positive reviews and only .99/

I hope you’ll celebrate International Short Story Month with me. For more information visit:
