Happy Book Birthday to Rescue Me!!!

Hard to believe that five years ago today my first book, Rescue Me, was released. I have so many wonderful memories about this book. I still remember the incredible rush I felt at finishing a story that came straight from my heart. The email from my future agent telling me she enjoyed the book and wanted to talk. (Yes there were tears!) And the astounding feeling of selling Rescue Me, along with two other as yet unnamed books, to a publisher. (Yes there were more tears!)

The day Rescue Me was released, I had a terrible upper respiratory infection and stayed in bed most of the day coughing my head off. Even as sick as I was, I wouldn't change a thing about that day. It was so very fine. :)

Five years of being a published author has been a wonderful, mind-blowing journey. There have been joys, disappointments, regrets, and excitement beyond anything I'd ever imagined. Even though we've parted ways, I will always be grateful to my agent for taking on a newbie author who knew next to nothing about the business and my publisher for not only buying my first book, but subsequently publishing eight more in that series and two others of another series. Getting anywhere in this business is often a team effort and their support made all the difference.

To celebrate Rescue Me's birthday, I'm giving away five signed copies. If you've never read the first book in the Last Chance Rescue series, or if you've read it but would like a signed copy, or if you'd like to gift it to someone, comment on this blog with your name and email address so I can get in touch with you if you win. I'll announce the winners Wednesday, April 30.

DARE TO SURVIVE

The first adventure in this action-packed, romantic suspense trilogy features a beautiful operative for an elite rescue organization, dealing with a rugged new partner, a dangerous mission …and her own secret past.

A covert operative of Last Chance Rescue Enterprises (LCR), Eden St. Claire has made secrets her life’s work. Seven years ago, an evening of emotional vulnerability and pure pleasure almost destroyed her. Now Eden wears her beauty like a mask, concealing any hint of vulnerability or demons of her past.

A daring rescue of an innocent girl on a Greek island leads Eden to a new partner. Jordan Montgomery, new to LCR, has been looking for Eden—though he knows her by another name, from another time. But his search for her is overshadowed by a case that’s gone international. A powerful, ruthless, organized network is stealing women and children around the world—as a lover, a traitor, and a killer all wait for Eden’s next move.

Happy Anniversary Release Day for Rescue Me! I had no idea when I read the book and fell in love with Jordan, Noah did have his story yet, that this was your first published book!

I have looked for other books by you. It's incredible that you have only been published for five years! I'm not sucking up, I'm serious!

I was hooked with this book and had no idea Noah was on his way.

Thank you for many hours of reading and re-reading these great stories. I am certain that there will be many, many more.

Congratulations!!!

Now, I think you get to eat cake!

I picked up a copy of "Rescue Me" and wiped it out in a couple of hours and immediately went on the hunt for the rest of the series. I was able to find all of the books over the course of a week or so and completely devoured them! I live in a small apartment and I don't keep a lot of books, only my favorite authors - and I kept ALL of this series! Now that I have my Nook I have a ton of books on it but I still have all the paperback copies of this series. Can't wait for your.next release!

Oh my gosh!! 5 years? Well I am soo thankful that Rescue Me caught my eye while I was visiting Barnes and Noble and I took a chance on a new to me author. I have been reaping the benefits of that decision every day since. Christy you were the first author I ever reached out to and because of that, I still have friends that you brought into my life.
So Rescue Me was so much more than a fabulous book. Thank you for all you do!!
