Happy Birthday, ONE SMALL FIB

Coffee for everyone! I'm celebrating the first birthday of ONE SMALL FIB being published! It's been an amazing 365 days! The nerves of having my first book out there have settled and I'm able to reflect lovingly on the journey.

From that first sale to today, I am grateful that readers have taken and continue to take a leap of faith in my writing. You all rock!!!

In February, One Small Fib was nominated as Book of The Month by Long and Short Reviews! Whew! A whirlwind of voting took place. While it didn't win, I was humbled that it stood proudly among some other great books. And again, thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who voted (and then re-voted after the technical snafu that dropped the first votes). I have to admit, that was one joyful, nerve-wracking weekend that I still smile about from time to time.

The news that One Small Fib had been chosen to be translated into Greek and sold in Greece made March an incredible month!!

The months following have been equally wonderful, with the release of four other books: Lucky Ducks, Kiss Me, The Gift of Gray, and Stay Close, Novac!

Regardless where my writing journey takes me, I will always have a special place in my heart for One Small Fib.

In lieu of cake, I'm giving away a copy of any one of my books to three lucky people -- (your choice of book since many of you have already read One Small Fib) All you have to do is leave a comment to be entered into the random drawing. Also, please leave your email address so I can notify you if you've won.

You can find my books at: www.janromes.com

Thanks to all of you again for making this heart-and-soul adventure a joyous one!!

Love,

Jan

  5. Wow, Jan, what a whirlwind is right! Congratulations on your debut novel's first anniversary and its subsequent successes. I'm thankful for having met you that day at RWA, and value our friendship via social media. Winning one of your books would be a boon, since I've had litle time for pleasure reading with all the writing going on here. :)
