THE RED BIKINI Is Now Available for Preorder!

How exciting! THE RED BIKINI  is now available for preorder from Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com! What do preorders mean? That means if you purchase the paperback edition now, your book will be shipped so you’ll have it on launch day, July 1. Or, if you purchase the Kindle edition from Amazon, or the Nook edition from Barnes and Noble, it will download automatically to your Kindle bright and early on July 1. And the timing is perfect — it’s the kind of book that’s perfect for a leisurely Independence Day weekend! Here’s a weird fact: The story actually takes place that very week! I even have a scene where they’re eating at a restaurant that’s serving red, white and blue tortilla chips for Independence Day.  🙂  Here’s where you can preorder: The Red Bikini on Amazon or The Red Bikini on...

She asked me to touch base with her in July and she’d help me promote. So exciting! It’s amazing to hear from big authors you admire and have them say nice things about your little ol’ book. “Surreal” is really the word. …

Great Review of THE RED BIKINI! — From Susan Mallery

Yeah, I got a little fangurl about it, but New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery read THE RED BIKINI and sent my editor a great cover blurb! Squeeeeee! She called it “funny, heartwarming and plenty sexy” and said Fin is her new favorite hero. She asked if I wanted to do some promo with her in July when the book is out, and (after I picked myself up off the floor) I wrote back and said “Yes, of course!” So look for some fun “HOT SUMMER READS” promo from me and Susan Mallery this...

A Two-Book Contract!

Whoo-hoo!!!!!!! *cue confetti and champagne corks* My lovely agent Jill Marsal helped me sell my first book to Berkley-Penguin Publishing in a 2-book deal!  Berkley bought Fin and Giselle’s story, which will come out July 2014. Plus a follow-up book about Giselle’s younger sister Lia and her hero Evan, which will come out March 2015. I’m still peeling myself off the ceiling. … For now, I’ll be Snoopy-dancing around the living room. … Here’s the official announcement that ran in Publisher’s Marketplace today: July 31 – SOLD! Lauren Christopher’s MAKING WAVES [later renamed THE RED BIKINI], about a divorced mom from Indiana whose life has been all about sippy cups and playdates until she comes to California and gets pulled into the strange new world of sand and surf with a younger man, in a 2-book deal with...
