Hey, gang—welcome to the new website! I know it has been 5 months since I’ve had access to a site and have posted updates, but I’m excited to announce that the new site, new host, new program, new everything is now here! My designer and I are still working out a few bugs to get the program we’re using to adapt to what we want it to do, but I think, overall, it has a cleaner, easier to navigate look.
What do you think? I’ve heard back from some beta testers, but I’d love to hear directly from readers, too, as to what you like, don’t like, would like to see.
One of the major changes you’ll see is that I no longer host a monthly giveaway here on the website. The logistics of managing that through the site were really bogging things down. But, I am doing periodic giveaways on my Facebook author page . So stop by there and “like” me if you haven’t yet already. I’ll be running a big giveaway starting October 1st on my Facebook author page, celebrating the upcoming release of KANSAS CITY COUNTDOWN that will feature books from many different Harlequin lines and authors.
Plus, be sure to sign up for my digital newsletter, which launches later this fall. There will be some giveaways for newsletter subscribers, too. The newsletters will come out periodically. And, of course, you can send me your snail mail address through the “Contact Me” area on the “About Julie” page if you’d like to join my mailing list and receive an occasional postcard from me.
On the writing front, I just turned in another Intrigue manuscript, tentatively titled PROTECTION DETAIL. That’s the May-December romance featuring Detective Lieutentant Thomas Watson many of you have asked for. Thomas is the dad of the first three heroes in my The Precinct: Bachelors in Blue miniseries. In the meantime, look for Keir Watson’s story, KANSAS CITY COUNTDOWN, which releases Nov. 22nd, and NECESSARY ACTION, which comes out in the spring of 2017.
I’m just starting a new, standalone Intrigue featuring a military hero I think you all will love.
Writing is a family affair! Check out my hubby,
