Jacquie's writing experience with LOVE, CHRISTMAS - MOVIES YOU LOVE

1. What is your main objective in bundling your works with other authors?

For me, it’s a combination of building a strong backlist, connections with other authors, and a new readership. Box sets are a great way to find readers who may not have otherwise given my work a try.

2. What blogging, newsletter and social media promotions have you done to promote the LOVE, CHRISTMAS collection?

We’ve been busy bees! There had been two book promotion tours, blogging on our websites and The Authors’ Billboard site, a two day Facebook party filled with fun and giveaways, a free Holiday Cookbook , a tempting first chapter preview of our work, Twitter parties, Pinterest posts, and lots and lots of sharing!

3. Most authors require a large time commitment just in writing and editing a new book. Was this your first book set, a new book was required with a deadline?

I have been in many multi-author collections and had a good idea what to expect with this set. Yes, they are all-new, never before released stories. We had approximately three-four months to write and edit before our deadline.

4. When will you publish your writings outside the LOVE, CHRISTMAS collection? It’s been decided by the group that we will promote Love, Christmas 2 as exclusive until December 1st, at which time we will be able to publish our individual work.

Summer Lovin' - Wounded Hearts- Book 5
Mitch Taylor and Rebecca Sorenson share a secret.

Rebecca’s job as secretary of Cascade Elementary, the same school she attended as a child, is rewarding. She has a great group of friends, many of whom are married now. And if sometimes she wished it were her up there in that sparkling white dress…

Except, wait—she did get to wear bridal white. Granted, it was a slinky party dress and the justice of the peace was Elvis in a gold lame jacket, but still, the deed was done.

She’d tied the knot.

Mitch Taylor doesn’t do regrets. It would be a waste of energy bemoaning the mistakes he’d made in his life. The end of his promising football career taught him nothing in life was a guarantee.

Like love.

What were the chances two people from the same po-dunk town in Washington would end up together in a nightclub in Las Vegas? A few too many drinks later, a hasty ceremony performed by the king of rock ‘n’ roll, and they’d been hitched. The night that followed lived on in his dreams, but when he’d woken the next morning she was gone.

Can these two mismatched lovers find a way past their mistakes, or will they keep their lonely hearts forever guarded?
