Healing Notes Super Book Blast

 Today is the Super Book Blast for Maggie Jaimeson's Healing Notes, A Romantic Woman's fiction book available now from Windtree Press. There are lots of blogs participating, and I will post them at the end for you to visit and increase your chances to win her prizes. Maggie is giving an autographed cover flat to one randomly drawn commenter at each stop, and one lucky person on the tour will win a $25 GC to either Amazon or Barnes & Noble (winner's choice).

Cover Flat

Maggie Jaimeson writes romantic women’s fiction and romantic suspense with a near future twist. She describes herself as a wife, a step-mother, a sister, a daughter, a teacher and an IT administrator. By day she is “geek girl” – helping colleges to keep up with 21st century technology and provide distance learning options for students in rural areas. By night Maggie turns her thoughts to worlds she can control – worlds where bad guys get their comeuppance, women triumph over tragedy, and love can conquer all.

HEALING NOTES is the second book in the Sweetwater Canyon Series of four books.  The final two books will be available in 2013.

Healing Notes Blurb:

Forgiving yourself is the first step, but helping others forgive may be just too hard.

Rachel Cullen grew up in Scotland with a fiddle in her hand from the age of four. She couldn't imagine life as anything but a musician. When her husband brought her to America she was immediately embraced by the Celtic and Bluegrass communities. But after her divorce, Rachel's life is a mess.

A year of trying to prove to herself that she's woman enough for any man, and then a vicious rape while on tour with the band, leaves Rachel reeling. When she meets Noel Kershaw, an English teacher who is poetry in motion, she is definitely attracted. But he has a young child and he's suffering from his own divorce. The last thing Rachel needs in life is more baggage.

First, Rachel must reconcile who she is, what she wants, and how to get there. Maybe then she'll know how to be a part of the family she's always wanted.

Healing Notes Excerpt:

Claire crawled onto a stool on the other side of the island and smiled.  Neither of them talked for several minutes as they listened to the water in the pot heat.

“When I grow up, I’m going to play with Sweetwater Canyon all the time.”

“Are you sure you want to hang out with all us old folks?”

“You’re not all old. Well maybe a little old. But Kat isn’t old.”

Rachel smiled. “That’s true. She’s only seventeen.” And going on twenty-five it seemed sometimes.

“Oh, seventeen? That is old.” Claire put a finger to her lips and furrowed her brow. “How old do I have to be to play in the band all the time?”

“Probably at least eighteen.”

“But, you just said Kat—”

“Kat is different, because her mother plays in the band and can watch her all the time.”

“Well, you can watch me all the time. You can be my mother.”

Rachel gulped.

“Well, can’t you?”

“Can’t she what?” Noel walked in the room and lifted Claire off the chair in a big hug, swinging her around the room. “Can’t she what? She can do anything she wants.”

“See,” Claire leaned forward and looked at Rachel over Noel’s shoulder. “See, even Daddy thinks you can be my mother.”

“Whoa.” Noel set Claire back on the stool. “I’m not sure what I walked in on here.” He sent an accusing glance to Rachel. “You already have a mother, Claire.”

“I know. Not my real mother. My second mother. You know, like my friend, Megan. Her mommy and daddy got divorced and her daddy married a new mommy. So, Megan has two mommies now.  See?  Rachel can be my second mommy. Okay?”

Okay, this one sounds terrific, and I will post a review of it in a few weeks. I promise. Now, also as I promised earlier, here are the other blogs on the Super Book Blast. Thanks for visiting.

  1. Thank you, Nancy, for featuring my book on your blog. And thank you in advance for taking the time to review it and post your comments. I've been quite excited for this book to come out. The topic of rape and recovery is close to my heart and one that I think effects many more women than we even know.

    I'd love to hear from your readers what is next on the TBR pile and why they chose that book. As an author and a reader, I'm always interested in the thought process that goes into not only picking up a book but then actually choosing to read it among all the other options in the TBR pile.

  2. Sounds like a great read.


  3. This sounds like a great book! Loved the excerpt! As for what I'm reading now - I'm reading "A Bridge to Treachery" by Larry Crane - it's a thriller/suspense book that I'm reviewing and then for fun I'm going to read the new Jacquelyn Frank book "Forbidden". Thanks for the giveaway

  4. Thanks for stopping by Ingeborg and Maria!
    Maria, you've mentioned two authors I haven't heard about. I'll have to check them out. Thank you!

  5. Nice cover. Looking forward to Gena Showalter's newest book because her books are good.


  6. The Grand Prize winner of the $25 gift card is Tore923. Congratulations Tore!

    Because I've had such a great time meeting everyone on this tour, I have decided to award autographed cover flats (one per person) to anyone who has commented during the Book Blast tour. If you wish to have one, please send an email to maggie at maggiejaimeson dot com with the name you would like with the autograph, and your mailing address. They must be sent through the post. If you do not want your name endorsed, in addition to the autograph, then please say so.

    I promise, I will not sell your address to anyone or pepper your mailbox with flyers.
