15 days/15 reasons to buy it now!
Monday, October 13th, 2008

In only fifteen days, DOWN IN TEXAS, will hit the shelves. So, it’s my mission to make sure that you are all so pumped about the book that you a) beg your local bookstore to make sure they have a copy ordered for you, or b) pre-order the book so that it’s shipped as soon as it’s available.

And be warned, I’m going to make it irresistible for you to ignore my siren’s call. I love this book. I believe 100% you’re going to love it, too. But don’t take my word for it now. Let me seduce you for the next fifteen days.

Hmmm…where should I start?

So, is that cover hot enough to convince you? Okay, covers don’t really tell you how good a book is. They are more a measure of how well the art and marketing department targeted the market (you) for this sort of book.

But the cover is absolutely perfect. The three stories in this volume are all about cowboys—not just men who wear hats, but the ride ’em hard kind—horses and women, ya know. The pretty horse is a very obvious sexual innuendo. The leather strap he’s holding in his hand gives you a hint that there’s probably some kink in the story. Well, I wrote it after all, so that should be a given. I would have liked some hair on the chest, because every one of my cowboys is old enough and wouldn’t be caught dead waxing. But you can see all those lovely hills and valleys…

Maybe the cover’s not a good enough reason to buy, but it is good enough to make you pick it up off the shelf and take a look inside the pages or at least read the back cover copy. Stick around for the next fourteen days and I’ll give you plenty of peeks so that you know good and well what kind of ride you’ll get.

In the meantime, I’ll sweeten the pot to make sure you come back each day to read this blog. There will be several great prizes—books, beaded bookmarks made by Delilah’s Spawn (otherwise known as the “red-headed hellion”), custom beaded necklaces, and a gift card or two. But you have to visit, and you have to post here or wherever I tell you to go be eligible to win!

Hasta la vista!

    I usually don’t allow covers to have a say in my buying decision, but this one would be an exception. Because right off the bat I know this book is about cowboys. Cowboys do it for me!
