The Sugarplum Dreams Tour Continues . . .

For today's tour stop, both M.B. Feeney and myself visited with Jennifer Garcia:

A note from the authors of Sugarplum Dreams: Putting yourself out there for public consumption is not an easy thing to do. We really hope that you are enjoying the stories, but would love it if you could let us know by visiting Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, or whichever site you prefer that has the book listed to leave a small review. Feedback is the best compliment you can give an author so that they can grow and improve their writing. 

In addition, as something a little different and a lot of fun, Renaissance Romance Publishing would be thrilled if you'd take a snapshot of yourself reading Sugarplum Dreams (or any of the individual e-books if that's the route you went) and send it in so they can do a montage tribute to the readers!

With subject line: I read Sugarplum Dreams!

Author and blog tour host, Lisa Bilbrey, invited M.B. Feeney to stop by for a chat about Right Click, Love and what it feels like to be a new author:

My first stop on the blog tour . . .

"Come join us for a great 3 week tour with guest posts, reviews, author interviews, and an awesome giveaway! Sugarplum Dreams is the fourth book with four fantastic stories in the Candy Hearts Collection published by Renaissance Romance Publishing.

I am a huge fan of R.E Hargrave and am thrilled she is stopping by to chat with us. I had the privilege of interviewing her a while back in the fandom and she is just one of the nicest, wittiest, funniest people I have ever encountered. With her Texas charm, she had me hanging on her every word. I for one am really looking forward to the release of The Divine Trilogy and am so pleased she was able to share her first published story, Sugar & Spice with us as well as a guest post for the tour."

And last but not least . . .

A late night reunion on the beach, warm cookies fresh from the oven, the overwhelming world of online dating, and a one-night stand that changes of the lives of three people — Sugarplum Dreams, Book Four of the Candy Collection, wields a voyage of self-discovery, new beginnings, new loves, and admirable courage. 

All week long I've shared the individual novella covers leading up to today. Now wait no more . . .
Ladies and gentlemen, may I present the anthology cover:

Scheduled for release in paperback and ebook on December 11th, 2012.

Individual novellas will be available in ebook only.

Sugarplum Dreams in a word from our authors:

Lisa Bilbrey calls the collection: “Four amazing stories that will have you on the edge of your seat and begging for more.”

M.B. Feeney says, “Beaches, baking, blogs and babies — Sugarplum Dreams offers escapism for all romantics.”

R.E. Hargrave added, “Moonlit beaches, the London dating scene, broken eggs, and mistaken identity are the stepping stones to follow four distinct love stories that span months and years in Sugarplum Dreams, Book Four of the Candy Collection.”

Michele Richard said, “From beaches to bakeries, to babies, to dating blogs, this anthology has everything to fulfill those holiday romantic readers with delight!”

Sugarplum Dreams Cover Reveals Day Two ~

For day two, we have the honor of introducing an author with her publishing debut. Hailing from the other side of the pond, please welcome M.B. Feeney: 

Disheartened about not being able to find “Mr. Right” on the London dating scene, best friends Jodie Lynch and Louise Hewson create a blog to not only document their disastrous dates with the numerous “Mr. Wrongs” and “Mr. Okay-for-nows” but also to help those going through the same experiences and to see where they’re going wrong. How will they deal with everything the dating scene has to throw at them — planned or otherwise?

Sugarplum Dreams Cover Reveals Day One ~

Hello and good morning everyone!  As promised today kicks off the Sugarplum Dreams cover reveals. Up first we have an author who is no stranger to publishing and is actually one of the co-founders of RenRom.  Without further ado, may I present:

Riley Farris and Natalie Sloane were the best of friends who spent every summer together on the sandy beach of Mustang Island. Then, just when Riley’s getting set to spend another summer with Natalie, she disappears. As the years pass, he struggles to understand what happened to the girl he knew. Until, one night while walking on the beach, he stumbles upon a woman who is broken and lost.
