Freebies, Gift Cards, Etc!

Dear Friends,

The New Year brings some wonderful new changes and exciting ventures on the horizons for me as a writer. I am super pleased and excited to announce the release of my new novel El Patron. If you love a good family saga with all of the drama, romance, grit and roller coaster of a ride that a good family saga provides, then this is one you won't want to miss.

My women's fiction Happy Hour has been out for a few months now and readers have been e-mailing me, letting me know they are loving it. Book clubs have been inviting me to come and talk about the book and drink wine with them. Sounds good to me!

For those of you who haven't picked up a Michaela Bancroft mystery (a.k.a. The Horse Lover's Mystery series) because you aren't a horse lover, well, that's okay. I think though, if you did read one of these mysteries, you would be pleasantly surprised as these mysteries ar not just for those of us who are passionate about the horse. If you haven't read about Michaela Bancroft and her crazy slew of friends (both of the two-legged and four-legged variety) you might want to give them a chance. For the first time these books are out in trade paperback and available on the amazon kindle at amazing prices (under three bucks).

I will be podcasting with Lori Gondelman from for paperbackswap coming up, look for my tweet and facebook page to announce the date, along with a guest spot on To follow me on Twitter, visit my page at winebookromance or find me on facebook under Michele Scott.

Also for A Toast to Murder is out in April, and is currently one of the Authorbuzz feature books of the month. It's the sixth Nikki Sands' Mystery and it's a lot of fun. I'll be at Mysterious Galaxy Book Store in San Diego on April 12th at 7:00 sharing the spotlight with Peter May who I am a fan of, so I'm excited to meet him!

Here's something all readers can get excited about! FREE STUFF! Look for freebies, gift certificates and more! Read all about your book club's opportunity to receive a $200.00 gift card to the book store of your choice, or an individual reader can win a $20.00 gift card.
