Impromptu Contest

Yesterday was an odd day for me. I was extremely busy at the day job and in between I received an email that I’d be getting a new editor. I know this happens in this business all the time, but for me it’s the first time. I guess for two years I’ve been lucky. That’s not to say my new editor won’t be good. Because I’m sure she’ll rock. We’ve exchanged a few emails and are trying to get on the same page with my current contracted project.
The house surprisingly was quiet. DH goes into the office some Thursday’s. Youngest was in school and the other daughter with grandkids went out for the day. The dogs were even well behaved. Of course all hell broke loose at 5 when they all returned.
The DH returned with an early Valentine’s Day gift. A new deli shop opened not far from our house so he stopped in to see what they offered. He brought home dinner too! That was a plus. So what did he give me? A dozen chocolate covered strawberries. He knows how much I love them. Needless to say I had my dessert before dinner.
The girls made homemade pizza for themselves. Overall it turned out to be a good day. Such a good day I’m going to throw an impromptu contest.
Head over to my website. On my BOOKS page there are three books in the spotlight. Find Heat Waves read the blurb and comment here with the hero’s profession. One lucky commenter will win a copy of one of my back list books.

Winner will be announced on Monday!


  1. Chocolate covered strawberries! Wonderful! I am so glad that you had a great day. Your hero is a radio DJ.

  2. Must've been some day to inspire such a contest! Having known several DJs in my time, I can say that it's rare that the voice and the face sync up. That being the case, you've got one lucky heroine if she found such a disc jockey!

  3. Ty is a DJ. I'm glad that you have a good day.

    Happy Friday!

  4. Chocolate and Strawberries. Yum! He is a disc jockey. Looking at the cover, he is much better looking than the disc jockeies at our local radio station.

  5. Hi Amber
    Ty is a radio DJ
    love the blub :)

  6. Ah, Ty is a sexy DJ and the blurb is fab!

  7. I'm staying out of the contest, to keep the numbers in favor of your reader fans. We author fans will suffer on the sidelines. ;)

    Love ya, hon. Sounds like a fantastic day you had.

  8. We need some Heat Waves over in my neighborhood. So would you mind sending DJ Ty and his sexy voice this way?! Pretty please!

  9. I agree - most DJ's are NOT nice looking. I knew a bunch back in NY. They had sexy voices, but that was it.
    That's what prompted me to write Heat Waves. :)

    We need a Heat Wave here too Linda.

  10. Ty is a radio dj..
    Sounds like your day ended have an awesome family!!!

  11. I hope you and your new editor become a strong team, and you look back someday and say "How did I get along without her?"
    You so deserve the chocolate strawberries! They're one of my favorites.
    XXOO Kat

  22. Hi Amber! This week its been up and down with peace to chaos too! Hubby been teasing about this b'day of mine which I've been dreading but the day comes and its totally quiet in here! The day after came the candy and a card from my daughter and son who came to visit and it was hilarious. Now I got an idea to tease him back with! LOL. So its been chaos since and will be til July when he meets up to me at the same age, LOL!
