Author Buzz & Free Books

After a delayed flight, an unexpected sleepover in the windy city, a mild sunburn, and eight days of pure bliss in sunny southern Florida, we're finally home! And no, there were no python sightings (but Aaron told me that pythons drop on their prey from the branches of trees and I did have a very hard time walking under trees the entire time we were there). Though I loved the pool, the hot tub, the beaches, the sun... I have to admit it feels good to find underwear in my drawer instead of the sandy bottom of my suitcase. Dorothy was right--there's no place like home.

Anyway, I have much to write about but I need to scour off the final remnants of potential swine flu germs (did I mention I HATE to fly?), and after that there is a bottle of Chenin Blanc calling my name. Well, not the whole bottle. ;) But, I couldn't let another day pass without saying hello, and extending a special welcome to any visitors who found their way here through the Author Buzz website. The Moment Between is one of the featured books on Author Buzz this week, and in celebration of the official release we're giving away five copies of the book! All you have to do is email me at with one reason why you'd like to win. Please write Giveaway in the subject line. Buena suerte!


  1. Welcome home, Nicole! I've heard so much about the pythons in Florida! Eeek! Those aren't snakes. They're prehistoric reptilian dinosaurs, in my opinion. No snake should be that big!!!

  2. Thanks, Kendall! It's great to be home. And I so agree with you--pythons are just wrong. The gated community where we stay boasts more than its share of alligators (one had just had babies and we had the *privilege* of seeing them all) and with the snake/alligator ratio out there I can't help feeling jittery from time to time. Ugh.

    Have a great week!

  3. i'm glad you are home safe and not eaten by pythons! :) when will you do the drawing for the free books?

  4. Hi Stacey! In answer to your question... Uh... Hmmm... Er, I don't know. How lame is that? The book is featured on Author Buzz all week this week, then I think I'm supposed to have the drawing after that. Tell you what, I'll find out and let you know!

    PS - Five more books are being given away on Goodreads. Just click to my homepage and follow the tab link below the photo of "The Moment Between." Two chances are better than one!

  5. ok i feel stupid - i went to goodreads and looked all over your page and couldn't find the other giveaway! poo.

    also, i'm no longer dying to know when the giveaway is - amazon finally released TMB on kindle (i've been checking everyday looking for it!) so i bought it and started reading it on my ipod last night!!!yay!!! so far, so good! although i'm confused about the two different storylines (i'm only like 15 pages into it...). can't wait to get entrenched in it!
