Is Anna J. McIntyre in the house?

Alter EgoMy alter ego—Anna J. McIntyre—has been low key these days. It isn’t that I haven’t been writing. I have. But my focus the last two years has been on my Haunting Danielle series, written under my real name, Bobbi Holmes.

I thought it was time I revisit my Anna J. McIntyre page and make some updates—because there have been some changes.

For one thing, the books in my Unlocked Hearts series are no longer exclusive on Amazon. You can now buy the eBooks at iTunes, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and of course—Amazon. Go to my Unlocked Heart’s page and you’ll find links by each book for the various vendors.

Another change, the first book in the Unlocked Hearts series, Sundered Hearts, is now free.

I’ve also updated this site—making it easier for you to find books from The Coulson Series at your favorite eBook vendor: Amazon, iTunes, Kobo, Smashwords , or Barnes & Noble. You’ll find the links on The Coulson Series page.

Happy reading!

New Look for the Unlocked Hearts Series

UnlockedHearts_All4

Cover designer Elizabeth Mackey has given my Unlocked Hearts series a new look! I especially love the Sugar Rush cover with the London Bridge in the background. Sugar Rush takes place in my hometown, Lake Havasu City, Arizona, home of the London Bridge.

The eBook covers are still updating, so they aren’t all up. It will take a few weeks before the paperback versions are updated with the new covers.

Inside Haunting Danielle

SONY DSCI’ve created the fictitious seaside town of Fredrickport, Oregon for my new Haunting Danielle series. I try to set my stories in locales I’m familiar with. Our son lives in Portland, and during one of our last trips we took a drive along the coast, even stopping by the Astoria house used in Goonies to snap a few pictures. I thought the Oregon coast would be a perfect setting for Haunting Danielle.

In my Coulson Series, the fictitious town of Coulson was patterned after my hometown of Lake Havasu City, Arizona, even down to how it was founded. Sugar Rush was actually set in Lake Havasu City, and While Snowbound was inspired by a mountain community we once lived in, Wrightwood, California.

I’ve been working on the book’s blurb—or book description—for the first book in the series, and this is what I have so far:

If the old house doesn’t need too much renovation, Danielle Boatman intends to turn it into a Bed and Breakfast. Since she has never visited the property, she’s not sure what awaits her in Oregon. One thing she doesn’t expect to find is one of the house’s previous owners still in residence. After all, the man has been dead for almost ninety years—shouldn’t he have moved on by now?

Look for Sundered Hearts Tomorrow

If all goes as planned, tomorrow Sundered Hearts should be available at Smashwords, and hopefully by Friday (or sooner) it will be available at Amazon. It will probably take a little longer to show up on the other venues, such as Barnes & Noble, iTunes and Kobo.

Part of my Sensual Romance Series, Sundered Hearts is a complete, standalone story, yet it introduces a much younger Ella (While Snowbound), Lexi (Sugar Rush) and Kit (After Sundown).

I hope you enjoy the story.

Coming soon – Sundered Hearts

Last night I sent my newest book – Sundered Hearts – off to the editor. It took me a while to decided on a title for this one. I even appealed to some of my author friends for ideas. Friend and fellow author Carol Newsome suggested Sundered Hearts, which fit the story beautifully.  Thanks Carol!!

Look for Sundered Hearts in the near future.

About Sundered Hearts:

Susan Thomas thought she had it all—a home, a husband she loved, and children in her future—until everything came crashing down one rainy afternoon, exposing her perfect world as a lie.

Determined to move on with her life, Susan recklessly drags Brandon Carpenter from the bar and into her bed. When she doesn’t see him again, Susan fears she is repeating her same old mistakes.

Seeking refuge at Shipley Mountain, the last person Susan expects to run into is Brandon. He has his own reasons for being on the mountain. Brandon and Susan must put aside their misunderstandings. A child’s life is at stake.
