Fairway To Heaven | It’s Pre-Order SALE Time!

FairWayToHeavenFinal-harlequin 200_200x315Sometimes you really should just go to bed, but before you go to bed you have a check of Amazon and ITunes and a little poke and putter around to see what’s happening with your books… I just did that, and discovered Fairway To Heaven is on sale, right now. It’s less than a dollar. 94 measly cents in Australia and with the exchange rate, something like 74 cents in the US.

I have no idea how long such a pre-order sale might last. And please do check before you click, just in case something has changed overnight :)

Here’s what some other authors and readers have said about Fairway.

“This was a don’t-put-down one for me.” Georgina Penney, author of Fly In Fly Out and Irrepressible You.

“I don’t read a lot in the romance genre, but love every word of this one.” Kylie Kaden, author of Losing Kate and Missing You.

“It would be years, decades even, since I read a romance novel and I don’t know why I chose to delve into this genre at this particular time, but I’m glad I did—it was pure escapism, and exactly what I needed on a Saturday afternoon.” Louise Allan, author & book lover.

“I loved reading this book! The strong and imperfect heroine and hero, who both have some serious issues to deal with. I even felt a heart string tug for the cheating ex.” Ryanne, Goodreads review.

What’s the book about?

When Jennifer Gates drives to Sea Breeze Golf Club to kick off date-night with her boyfriend, the last thing she expects is to find Golf-Pro Jack giving one of his lady students a private—and very personal—lesson in bunker-play.
Luckily for Jenn, her best friend gives her the keys to the Culhane family’s beach shack on the white-pepper shores of Western Australia’s Geographe Bay. Jenn hopes a weekend on the coast with her young son will give her the space she needs to rebuild her confidence after Jack’s betrayal.
But she’s not the only person seeking sanctuary by the sea. Brayden Culhane is there too, and Jenn can’t look at Brayden without remembering the tequila-flavoured kiss they shared on the shack steps years ago.
As long-buried feelings are rekindled, and a friendship is renewed, Jenn knows it is more than lazy summer days bringing her mojo back. Romantic sunsets, ice-cold beers and the odd round of golf can only go so far, because this time, trusting Brayden with her heart won’t be enough. Can Jenn learn to trust her body, too?

Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop

2015-ausdayHappy Australia Day to Aussies and ex-pat Aussies everywhere. Thanks for visiting me as part of this great book-blogging frenzy!
This year, Australia Day is a Monday and I’ll be enjoying a long weekend. I’ve had the last two weeks on leave from work and I’ve had in-laws visiting, which has been great fun for my two boys. They haven’t seen their grandparents for a while.
I’m hoping the weather is warm and my Australia Day might include a trip to the beach and hopefully, some writing!
I’ve been working feverishly on revisions for my fourth complete novel, called So Far Into You, and sent them back to my Escape Publishing editor last week. This means I’m now in that nail-biting “waiting” time (hate this stage), to see if she likes the way I’ve reworked it.
In April, I’ll have my previously self-pubbed, now picked up by Escape, coastal reunion romance called Fairway To Heaven coming out in e-book stores.You can read more about Fairway (including a Chapter 1 excerpt) if you visit the My Books tab on this site.
It’s been a busy year since I was part of Shelleyrae’s BookdOut blog in 2014. I hope the year ahead is a great one for you and your family.

To celebrate Australia Day, I’m offering every visitor who emails me at lilymalone@mail.com an e-copy of my novella The Goodbye Ride. (Sorry – Kindle only)

And for the chance to win something extra:

unrestraineda) If you like your romance a little steamy (okay, a lot steamy) I’ll gift an e-copy of Rhyll Biest’s Unrestrained. Rhyll is an Aussie author I love, and this was my favourite e-book of 2014 about Aussie girl Holly and German stonemason, Stein.

b) If you like your romance sensual, I’ll gift an e-copy of Perth author Jennie Jones’ new book, The House On The Bottom Of The Hill from Jennie’s bestselling Swallows’ Fall series set in a fictional small town in the snowy mountains.thatboth

UCODc) If you like your romance with a touch of suspense, I’ll gift an  e-copy of Perth author Juanita Kees ARRA nominated finalist, Under Cover Of Dark. Set in Perth, this is part of Juanita’s Tag Raiders series – showing Perth’s darker side.

Please tell me in the comments if you’re up for steamy, sensual or suspense, and why you’d enjoy the above book of your choice. I’ll contact the winners on Tuesday January 27.

What is your background with regard to writing?
I was a journalist and magazine editor for years, with a specialty in wine industry magazines. I think this is why I like writing about wine and vineyards.

Fairway to Heaven is my new book, it will be out in April 2015 with Escape Publishing. This is my ‘golf’ story that isn’t really about golf at all. It’s set in Geographe Bay (Busselton and Margaret River area in Western Australia). It is about a mother’s attempts to regain her sexual identity and her mojo after splitting up with the father of her young son. She runs into an old flame, and… magic happens.

What inspired this novel?
Many (many) discussions in playgrounds with other mothers about the physical and mental trials and tribulations we…

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,100 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

Cooking Christmas in the New House

I’m on holidays! I have three days off this week making a whole week off work with the public holidays. Yee-ha! I love being on holiday. I’m very good at being on holiday. Especially when there is cricket to watch, wine to drink and a comfy chair, beach or couch to relax on.
Bring it on!XmasAtLilys_FB_1
Christmas this year is our first one in the new house. My mum, sister and her family are all coming for Christmas lunch. There will be champagne, pork, ham and yummy salads and I’m making icecream cake. Because: icecream cake!
But it’s been a very strange lead-up to Christmas in Chez Malone. First: the entire family have been sick in the last week with colds and hubby this morning has seen the doc and his ‘man-flu’ has graduated to pneumonia! So he’s on penicillin to try to knock it on the head. We have been the house of snotty noses, high temperatures and barking coughs long into the night.
I did my Christmas shopping early and I thought I had it all under control, but then last night I was wrapping away and I have come to think that I’ve short-changed one son on his santa list compared with the other… so I’m not quite finished, I just have a little bit more to do.
Also, I need more wrapping paper. How smart are kids these days? I’ve been very careful to wrap the ‘Santa’ presents in different wrapping paper to those for the family…
I have two Secret Santa presents to buy for a Christmas Eve party near where I live.

For my mum, I bought two bookish presents: Thornwood House by Anna Romer and Still Alice by Lisa Genova. Hubs got the first two seasons of Breaking Bad which we’ve been meaning to watch for a long time and have never got around to.

As for me? I am getting a bike!
This is very exciting. It’s a loooonnnggg time since I’ve ridden a bike. I usually walk everywhere close, including to work, and for exercise. Now that my boys are bike riding without training wheels and can be reasonably reliably relied upon not to crash, I need something faster than feet to keep up with them. I hope the bike arrives before Christmas :)
It’s such an expensive time of year, Christmas. In all the commercialism, I plan to enjoy the holiday and the time with loved ones. I cannot believe the disasters that finished 2014: Sydney Seige, Cairns, Pakistan… all the terrorist hotspots in the world, Ebola, and ongoing atrocities – I think the world will breathe a sigh of relief to see 2014 disappear and may well hope for brightness in 2015. I wish I had confidence that the brightness will come… but everything is so incredibly F***ed Up… I don’t know which way peace lies.
Hopefully it’s inside everyone, somewhere, and responses like #IllRideWithYou might lead the way.
So for Christmas I wish you a happy time with your loved ones and friends, doing those things you love best. And for the new year I wish you peace and tolerance, and all the simple things.
