There's nothing more important than the support of your fans but also the support of your fellow authors. I'm fortunate that I have a great group of author friends.
To "Share The Love", the Rafflecopter is set up to promote three wonderful authors. So, instead of Like'ing my Facebook page I've put the links for thiers. They are Best-Selling authors: Jennifer Conner, Joanne Jaytanie, and Darlene Panzera.
I'll also be giving away a pretty organza necklace.
And a eBook copy of my Valentine Story, "Be Mine". To two lucky winners. (US only please).
Corny has a unique psychic ability to communicate with animals, but can she come up with five days of perfect Valentines gifts for her tough-as-nails Seattle cop boyfriend.
Time is running out and Brutus—the horny Labrador, Molly—the hussy French Poodle, Hernando Lamberto—the prized Pekinese, Harry—the Penguin, Buddy the Butt Head—Iguana, and three raccoons all need Corny’s attention.
Can she pull it all together for the perfect Valentine’s Day celebration?
Okay, let me tell you a little about these four Best-selling authors I'm featuring. Let's start with the wonderful Jennifer Conner.
Jennifer Conner is a best-selling Northwest author who has forty short stories and books in print. She writes in Christmas Romance, Contemporary Romance, Paranormal Romance, Historical Romance, and Erotica.
She has hit Amazon's top fifty authors ranking and her books have been #1 in sales.
Her novel Shot in the Dark was a finalist in the Emerald City Opener, Cleveland, and Toronto RWA contests.
Jennifer is an Associate Publisher for the indie e-book publisher, Books to Go Now who resides in the Seattle area.
They pride themselves in helping new authors get their foot in the door with well-edited manuscripts, professional covers, and platforms uploads.
She live in a hundred year old house that she grew up in. Her semi-small town holds an interesting mix of resident hillbillies, yuppies and Navy Seals.
And of course Seattle, only a few miles away, is the birthplace of Starbucks so coffee is always on the check list. She blows glass beads with a blow torch, (which relieves a lot of stress and people don't bother you) and is a huge fan of musicals.

And of course the incredible International Best-Seller Chris Karlsen.
Chris Karlsen is a retired police detective. She spent twenty-five years in law enforcement with two different agencies. The daughter of a history professor and a voracious reader, she grew up with a love of hisotry and books.
An internationally published author, Chris has traveled extensively throughout Europe, the Near East, and North Africa satisfying her need to visit the places she read about. Having spent a great deal of time in England and Turkey, she has used her love of both places as settings for her books. "Heroes Live Forever," which is her debut book, is set in England as is the sequel, "Journey in Time."
Both are part of her "Knights in Time," series. Her third book, to be released in late 2011, "Golden Chariot," is set in Turkey and she is currently working on another set in Turkey, Paris and Cyprus. Published by Books to Go Now, her novels are available in digital, ebook, and Android App. "Heroes Live Forever," is available in paperback and "Journey in Time," will be made available in paperback in October, 2011 on her publisher's site.
A Chicago native, Chris has lived in Paris and Los Angeles and now resides in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and four rescue dogs. A city girl all her life, living in a small village on a bay was a interesting adjustment.
She'd never lived anywhere so quiet at night and traffic wasn't bumper to bumper 24/7. Some of Chris's favorite authors are: Michael Connolly, John Sandford, Joseph Wambaugh, Stephen Coonts, Bernard Cornwell, Julia Quinn, Julie Anne Long, Deanna Raybourne and Steve Berry.

Next in line to be featured, also very wonderful, is Joanne Jaytanie.
She and her husband live in a beautiful home that is located on the Kitsap Peninsula with a panoramic view of the Olympic Mountains. Just a ferry ride away from Seattle.
She has a Bachelors Degree in Business. Joanne spent a number of years in business administration, ten of which she and her husband owned their own forensic engineering firm.
The past twenty years she has trained and shown dogs, and is very involved in the dog world. Joanne is the President and AKC Delegate of her local All-Breed Dog Club.
She is a member of the Seattle Romance Writers Chapter, and was the 2012 President of RWA’s Peninsula Chapter.

Last, but not least, the wonderful Darlene Panzera.
Darlene Panzera writes sweet, fun-loving romance and is the winner of the "Make Your Dreams Come True Contest" sponsored by Avon Books, which led her novella, THE BET, to be published with Debbie Macomber's FAMILY AFFAIR.
The full length novel, re-titled, BET YOU'LL MARRY ME, released December 2012 and her upcoming series, THE CUPCAKE DIARIES, releases May 2013 with subtitles: Sweet on You, Recipe for Love, and Taste of Romance.
"I love writing stories that help inspire people to laugh, value relationships, and pursue their dreams."
Born and raised in New Jersey, Darlene is now a resident of the Pacific Northwest where she lives with her husband and three children.
When not writing she enjoys spending time with her family and her two horses, and loves camping, hiking, photography, and lazy days at the lake.
Darlene would love to hear from her readers. You can find her on Facebook or visit her website:
