Merry Christmas!

It’s July and the heat index must be over 100. My daughter is sun burnt from our visit to the pool a couple days ago. My AC bill’s going to be sky high next month.

But the Christmas movies are coming out of storage and I’ll begin writing Christmas stories and doing Christmas shopping and celebrating Christmas in July.

The Romance Readers and Writers are having a big Christmas in July celebration and contest. In conjunction, I will be giving away a copy of my new book “So You Want To Marry Our Mom”, a sweet contemporary romance being published by Amber Quill Press. http://www.amberquillpress.com/

To win a copy, please leave a comment on my blog that you would like to be entered to win "So You Want To Marry Our Mom". To get additional entries, let me know you're a follower, retweet my contest on Twitter, or leave a reader review of one of my books on Amazon (and tell me of course so I can find it). I'll award an additional entry for each thing (as long as you let me know).

I'll award two pdf copies of the book July 31, 2010.

"So You Want To Marry Our Mom" by Elaine Hopper

Releases Tuesday July 6, 2010 at http://www.amberquillpress.com/

When erotic romance writer Jackie Duarte’s kids nominate her to be a television bachelorette on Perfect Mate and help to pick her next husband and their new father, her life becomes crazier than it’s already been. Now the whole world will meet her bratty ADHD/ODD twelve-year-old, perhaps learn of the penname she has fought so long to keep under wraps, and see her house on television...and she’s no Martha Stewart.

Worse yet, the ghost of her husband has long been talking off her ear but now he’s also giving her dating advice, telling her how to flirt and whom to marry. She has to be extra careful not to speak to him aloud while the cameras are rolling or risk being put into a straightjacket.

But worst of all, Doug Applebaum, her best friend and the younger man she had wanted to marry but gave up on, finally decides he loves her, after she’s legally committed to wed one of the bachelors on her show. What can Jackie do now? Go back on her commitment to the show, ignore the advice of her children and her deceased husband, or follow her heart straight into Doug’s waiting arms?

Genres: Romance / Contemporary Romance / Paranormal Romance Length: 95k words
