This week has been so great! So much good news to share...

First, I got my head-shots earlier this week. I'm so excited
about them. She did a fantastic job and if anyone's looking for a
photographer in the Huntsville area I can't recommend A Green Field
Photography enough.

Yesterday I found out that Caught Off Guard is a finalist in the National Readers Choice Awards in the Series Suspense category. I was absolutely
thrilled! I emailed everyone and posted on Twitter and tried to go about the rest of my day (but I'll admit it was hard to concentrate on anything).

Then, late last night I learned that What Might Have Been is also a finalist in the National Readers Choice Awards in the Contemporary Series category. I think I'm still in shock. :-) And so excited to be a double finalist!

Today life has to get back to normal. Spring Break is next week and the girls and I are going on vacation since Zilla can't take time away right now. I've never taken a vacation with just the girls so it should be interesting - and fun! We'll miss Zilla, but my mom is coming so we're going to turn it into a girl's trip. And I get to visit my Grandma! If only my ducks would take it upon themselves to get in a row things would be great.

I want to spread the joy so I'm giving away a signed set of all three books in my Island Nights Series. Comment for a chance to win!

And if you haven't joined my Fan Page come over and see some more head-shots (including a couple funny ones). I've just started a newsletter as well if you'd like to keep up with all my news (We all know me, so chances are you'll only get a handful of emails a year).

To double your chances of winning, I'm holding a contest on Pinterest. Repin the cover for Bring It On, Take It Down and/or Rub It In by April 30th for a chance to win a signed copy. I'll also give you an extra entry for each repin your pin gets. Right now your chances of winning are pretty darn good! :-)

Wow! Kira! Hair colour is gorgeous and how blue are your eyes!!!!!!!!!! Do you have contacts or are they natural??
Think you actually look younger in these pictures, absolutely fabulous!

Thanks, PJK!

I do wear contacts, Scarlet, but they're not colored so that's just my eyes (although I think the wonderfully talented photographer helped them along...) And I think you're my new favorite person for saying I look younger! :-)
