Reviews and Courting Trouble

So the thing about release day is it only lasts 24 hours. And then it is time to get back to work. Right now I am working on the deep edit of Courting Trouble:

The brilliant and amazing Kim Killion designed the cover. She truly is a genius.

I have a special spot in my heart for this book as it combines some of my favorite things: The Rocky Mountains, Romance, Law, Romance, Family, Romance...did I mention the Romance? I am excited for you to meet Tulsa McGrath the heroine--she is feisty and strong and emotionally confused--just like I like the women that I write! Cade Montgomery though isn't nearly as closed off as some of my heroes he is emotionally conflicted but for all the right reasons.

Set in Powder Springs Colorado a small town in the Rocky Mountains, the landscape, the town, and even the weather play big parts in this book. I stole one of Megan Crane's techniques and started a Pinterest board for the book.

Courting Trouble is set to release July 2012--wow that is really soon--guess I better get back to work. But before I do...

Can't Buy Me Love hit the top ten list at All Romance for Chick Lit sales! I'll take it! So exciting and all within the first weekend. Thank you!! I had no idea the amazing Jennifer Probst let me know and I was (and am) thrilled!!

Can't Buy Me Love got a fantastic review at In Love With Romance! Five out of Five stars. Let me just share my favorite part:

I loved, loved, loved this story. I live in L.A. so it was easier to relate to some of the real places mentioned (as I've been there). Aside from that, I work in the Corporate world, and so the way the story developed and the characters' interactions were too close to home for me. A lot of real life scenarios. This is now in my fave of faves bookshelf.

I am now looking forward to Maggie's next release.

Wow, thank you! So of course in honor of a this amazing review I am giving away a copy of Can't Buy Me Love. Leave a comment about your favorite book and you are entered to win!

Maggie - I haven't read your books - but from your introduction - you've made my list of books to buy. Women I want to share my reading time with must be strong and who isn't emotionally confused about something these days. I don't think any of us can go wrong with being feisty - regardless of age. Because I'm on the cusp of reading one of your novels, I'm sorry I can't list one of your books as a favorite of mine, to date. However, you are now on my Amazon 'to be ordered list.' I will add that I just finished reading The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey and will be blogging about it in the near future. It is a beautiful read. I'm glad I stopped in to read your blog.

I am in the same boat as Sheri - I have yet to read one of your books but that isn't on purpose. I will have to add it to my TBR pile which is overflowing onto the floor in my bedroom. AACK! So many great authors and not enough free time since I'm writing as well. But hey, I love the cover for Courting Trouble. Wow!

Thank you, Sherri and thank you Patricia! I am so pleased I've made your TBR piles--it is a great place to be. I should have added the disclaimer 'excluding any of my books' what are some of your favorite books. I've not read The Snow Child but now I have an addition to my TBR pile!

My favourite book, eh?
Hmmm that's a hard one. I guess 'Looking for Alaska' by John Green. Plainly put; this book is made of awesome! I heard some saying it's sad or depressing. I'd say beautiful is a more suitable word... I love the thoughtful way John writes in, and with the hilarious scenes added, this book is easily one of the best I've read.

Thank you for the giveaway!
