It’s My Birthday! Free Book Coming Soon

It’s My Birthday!

As difficult as it is for many of us to toot our own horns, today I’ll make a fabulous exception. Today is my birthday! I’m so grateful for the many blessings in my life, and it’s wonderful to see that the bold changes that I’ve made over the past few years are starting to take root. Despite the challenges and the HUGE learning curve that I still have to tackle, it’s been a blast (and one heck of a roller coaster ride) dedicating my creative energies to doing many of the things that I truly love. This includes writing sweet little love stories that take place where I live in California.

Free Book Coming Soon

Without you, all of this wouldn’t be possible. Even though we both know that I have a long way to grow, you still encourage me by following my blog, getting my sporadic newsletter (if you don’t, sign up here), and, of course, reading my books.

Today, as I think about all of the ways that I can celebrate my birthday and say Thank You, it occurred to me that I can offer a book to you that is ABSOLUTELY FREE. And so, I will do just that.

Here are a few things that I can tell you about the story:

1. This book will be absolutely FREE.

I’ll certainly make sure that my newsletter subscribers receive some of the first copies of this ebook (you know, as a token of my appreciation for loyalty and all that kind of goodness).

2. Of course, it will be a Holiday Heartbeats story.

By now, you know that my little engine that could – my Holiday Heartbeats sweet romance novella series – is my first darling BookBaby. Even if you don’t think you’re into the whole romance thing – give this one a try (or send it to someone you know would love it). You might be pleasantly surprised!

3. It Will Be A… (Wait For It) CHRISTMAS STORY!

Seriously, how could this even be a surprise? As much as I love His Epiphany, I haven’t quite gotten all of the deliciousness of Christmas out of my system. I hope that you haven’t, either. This freebie will definitely have a ton of the Christmas spirit – with a very Californian twist.

Stay Tuned

I know, I know – Halloween isn’t even here yet. Still, I always love having something positive to look forward to. I can’t wait to share more details with you as we get closer to Christmas and the Holiday Season. Stay tuned for more updates here on my blog. In the meantime, I’ll be eating cake.

 

Sending Love and Light to all of you!

Advance Readers Wanted! Luck of the Irish (Holiday Heartbeats #3)

Be the First to Read This Book!

Luck of the Irish (Holiday Heartbeats #3) is going live next month on August 8th. Based on advance reader’s reactions, it’s the best one yet in the series, and I can’t wait for YOU to read it. (Seriously – I really can’t wait for you to read it.)

That’s why I’m looking for up to 10 people to read Luck of the Irish before its release date in exchange for an honest rating/review.

luck-of-the-irish-holiday-heartbeats-atina-atwood
Luck of the Irish is available now for preorder.

Am I freaking out about this? You bet your bippie (whatever a “bippie” is, but I digress.) Still, I fell in love with this sweet love triangle that inspired a young woman (Nhu) to recognize and claim her worth and settle for nothing less. I hope that you’ll fall in love with her story, too. As with all stories in my Holiday Heartbeats series, this is a novella. Lately, I’ve wanted to expand their stories to novel-length, but this series is designed to be a quick, light, romantic read.

If you’re interested in becoming an Advance Reader, simply do the following:

* comment and retweet/repost on social media to get my attention

* be willing to leave an honest rating and/or review (please be kind!)

 

I look forward to sharing Nhu, Eoghan, and Jack’s story with you!

Sending Love and Light to all of you.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

This past weekend was where we all had a chance to celebrate being Irish – or we could just claim to be Irish for a day if desired. For whatever reason, St. Patrick’s Day is one of my Daddy’s favorite holidays (hey, I may be all grown up, but he’ll always be my Daddy <3). For precisely that reason, I wanted to really do something to make the holiday even more special to me. That’s how Luck of the Irish, the third story in my Holiday Heartbeats series, was born.

Luck of the Irish

Spoiler alert: my heroine is not Irish. Nhu is Vietnamese-American, and I have to extend a heartfelt thanks to one of my family members for helping me infuse authentic cultural insight while fleshing out her character. Please note: While Nhu’s ethnicity is clearly an integral part of who she is, know that there is no huge banner throughout the story that is demanding intense perusal and analysis of her life as a Vietnamese-American. When she first appeared in Love Games, she was Mari’s sassy best friend (don’t we just all want one of those?!). I couldn’t stop wondering what Nhu’s bar exam results were, and when I kept thinking about her, I realized that I was even more curious to find out who she is and what’s going on in her life.

It turns out that Nhu is a young woman of true grace and grit – and in Luck of the Irish, we find out that she’s also in quite a bind. Having a complicated relationship with one person is tough enough. Just imagine the headache (and possible heartache) of having to choose between two people pursuing you at the same time.

Don’t Let Love Define You

Still, what I love most about Nhu’s story is that it’s really about her self-discovery, reclaiming her power, and establishing autonomy in all things – including her love life. As a firm believer of HEA’s or HFN’s, I’m curious to see how this love triangle mess turns out because honestly, I can totally see Nhu running away from both pursuers in favor of just loving herself for a while.

Stay tuned for Luck of the Irish, available now for preorder now wherever ebooks are sold.

Sending Love and Light to all of you.
