Jenny's New Book!

As many of you may or may not know, my wife Jenny is a writer. She has written many best selling business books over the years and also a terrific health book on diabetes. Well, after many years of writing novels for fun, she finally sold a three book series of historical romances to Avon a little over a year ago.

The first of those books, Lord Lightning, is now on bookstore shelves around the U.S.A. This is a big deal because the big publishing houses are not publishing very many new authors these days and this is something Jenny has always dreamed of doing. I'm so proud of her! :)

We're really curious about where Lord Lightning might be showing up, so I'm calling on all my web friends to help us out and let us know if Lord Lightning made it to the shelves in your town. To encourage you to participate Jenny has created a contest and will be offering prizes to randomly selected people who report their book spottings.

All you have to do to enter is snap a photo of Lord Lightning when you see it on a store shelf.



You'll find the web entry form where you can upload your spotting photo and a note about where you spotted Lord Lightning HERE

List of Spottings

You have your choice of prizes when you fill in the entry form. Choose an Advanced Reading Copy of Jenny's next novel or an Atwood Mini Rifle Knurl Lanslide.

We'll be drawing the winners on November 1, 2010.

The publisher tells us Lord Lightning was ordered by all the big chains and should be stocked in quite a few Walmarts, too. So that means Barnes and Noble, Borders and probably some other stores as well.

Don't let the lurid cover fool you. Though it is being marketed as a romance, with the traditional "clinch" cover, Lord Lightning is a well written, very well-researched, emotionally compelling story that people of both genders have found entertaining.

You can read an brief excerpt on Amazon HERE.
