Stop by tomorrow to read guest blogger Brenda Novak’s post on author branding called, “What’s in a Brand?” Brenda writes contemporary romance and romantic suspense from her home in Sacramento, California. She’s the prolific writer of twenty-five books, the mother of five children, and a great friend and mentor to those who know her. Additionally, her annual online auction for Juvenile Diabetes Research has raised over $269,000 in the three years she's been holding it. Amazing feat!
Many of Brenda's books have been designated a Romantic Times “Top Pick” and have gone on to place in contests such as the National Reader’s Choice, the Bookseller’s Best, The Write Touch Reader’s Award, the Holt, the Award of Excellence, and the Beacon Award for Published Authors.
Brenda's latest work includes a trilogy set in a small town in Mississippi. DEAD SILENCE and DEAD GIVEAWAY are out. The third book in the trilogy, DEAD RIGHT, will be available August 1st.
An autographed copy of her latest contemporary "Coulda Been a Cowboy" will be raffled off on Sunday to one of our lucky commenters. "Coulda Been a Cowboy" is the story of a professional football player who suddenly finds himself saddled with an illegitimate baby, a public scandal involving that baby's mother, and a plain Jane nanny. He doesn't want any of the three--until he spends a few weeks with plain Dakota Brown and baby Brayden. Then he realizes that the embarrassing scandal has actually forced changes in his life that might bring him everything he's ever wanted.
Be sure to post your comment by Saturday night. The winner will be announced on Sunday, July 1.
