The last day to enter and BIG NEWS!!!!!

Erica here:

Today, dear friends, is the last day to enter the Homestead Brides Giveaway! 


And, because it's Friday, I'm going to share some super-cool news with you!

This summer, July 1st, to be exact, my novel The Cactus Creek Challenge releases. And here is the cover art:



Here's a little bit about the story:

Anything he can do, I can do better. At least that was what Cassie Bucknell thought before she pinned on Ben Wilder’s badge and took to patrolling the streets of Cactus Creek, Texas. Cassie has been in love with Ben since primer school, but Ben treats her like a little sister. When they are picked to swap jobs for a month as part of the annual Cactus Creek Challenge in their Texas hometown, the schoolhouse is thrown into an uproar, the jail becomes a temporary bank vault, and Cassie and Ben square off in a battle of wills that becomes a battle for their hearts.

I have to tell you, writing this book was a HOOT! There is a mischievous pair of twins that are so funny! I remember telling Jaime about this book when I was first starting to write it, and she paid me the extreme compliment of saying a few days later, she was hunting around her house for that book because it sounded like such fun to read.

And in other news:  In just three weeks, a prequel to The Cactus Creek Challenge releases. And...it's FREE!


The Legend of Obadiah Wilder: The Glorious Defeat of the Dickenson Gang will release on March 1st as a free ebook download. 


Obadiah Wilder is the father of the main character in Cactus Creek, and this is the story of the exploits that made him one of the most famous lawmen in Texas.



We're going to be doing some fun giveaways with both of these releases. I hope that you'll come back and take part. For now, there's still a few hours to enter the Homestead Brides Giveaway.

    1. Lucas is a good one! He's so tall, I always worry his feet will drag the ground when he climbs on his horse! And I love little Mark.
