My pal, Claire Gem is here to tell us a little bit about April Fools’ Day and what is making this day so special for her! Read her post, and come join us on the fun a little later today! By the way, I already bought her book. I can’t wait to read it!
Fun Friday with Claire Gem!
Hmm…what could be fun about this particular Friday??? Fridays are always great, right? So what’s so special about—
NO, wait. I know. Three things. Three awesome, amazing things are happening today.
First, it’s April Fools’ Day. Okay, so who doesn’t have fun with that? I certainly did, 31 years ago, when I gave birth to a set of twin boys. Twins, I might add, that I didn’t know were coming in all their glorious multiplicity until a couple weeks before they made their grand entrance, stage south. So, Happy, Happy Birthday to Justin and Jesse, my double-the-fun young sons.
Second, it’s Release Day for my New Gothic romance, HEARTS UNLOCHED. And I set this date VERY intentionally. Here’s why:
The first scene of my book, where the sparks fly between Marco and Kate, takes place on April first at a racetrack where Kate’s horse is running. And, her horse’s name is April’s Here, because the mare was born on April first (and by the way, I actually rode a horse with that name and fame back in the day).
And Third, the most important reason I chose this date to release HEARTS UNLOCHED is because one of my sons—one of the April Fools’ twins I mentioned earlier—came up with the title. Which I LOVE. Thank you, Justin.
It’s providence, I tell you. What can come of this day that’s NOT completely good?
So please, join Erin, me, and 10 other talented authors as we kick off Launch Day for HEARTS UNLOCHED on Facebook today from 3-9 p.m. EST. There will be prizes and giveaways, lot of pics of really hot guys, and tons of fun! What better way to spend your Friday night—even if it is April Fools’ Day?
