Spring has sprung in Cleveland, Ohio. The days are getting longer and brighter, the birds are chirping in the trees, flowers are blooming everywhere and there’s a new book in town!
Check it out:
Everyone loves marketing whiz Charlie Solanger…except the woman he really wants.
PAINT, PROMOTIONS & PERFECTION
Creative genius Charlie Solanger has it all: good looks, money, intelligence, charm. And when he swoops in to save Reynolds Paint Company with a brilliant marketing campaign, he has all the ladies in the office vying for his attention. Everyone except math whiz Valerie Wilson.
Val’s not happy Charlie stole her promotion. Worse, his brand of flirtatious charm is reminiscent of her cheating ex-fiancé. So, how come she can’t get him out of her head? The more she challenges him, the more interested—and interesting—he becomes. What secrets is Charlie hiding, and who or what is behind the sudden mysterious drain on their company’s funds? The only way to find out is to join forces. Then it will be a battle of wills…and a triumph of hearts.

A note from the author
Charmed By Charlie was born out of a moment of pure frustration. I had been shopping my first novel, Mind Waves, around and dealing with rejection after rejection. Would I ever see the book published? Maybe I ought to write something new — something totally different, something witty and fun and lighthearted. My teenaged daughter and I were watching Gilmore Girl reruns at the time, so I thought why not something like this show with all the silly banter between characters?
I began to type and the first chapter rolled onto the page effortlessly. As the characters came to life, they drove the story line and nagged at me to keep writing. So I did. Soon I had finished ten chapters.
And then a wonderful thing happened. The Wild Rose Press offered a contract for Mind Waves. The long wait was over. My frustration eased. But still, I couldn’t stop writing Charmed By Charlie. The characters hounded me to tell their story.
Lucky for me, I did, because in a stroke of luck, Boroughs came calling. “Did I have anything to show them?”
I did. They signed Charlie on the spot.
I can’t wait for you to meet the whole cast of characters at Reynolds Paint Company. I hope you love them as much as I do!
P.S. I’m happy to say, I’m no longer frustrated.Check out the #coverreveal for #charmedbycharlie release day April 18 from @boroughspubgrp! Click To Tweet

The cover looks great! Can’t wait to read it…especially now that I know it was inspired somewhat by my beloved Gilmore Girls!
I have a special Gilmore Girls mug that I’ll be giving away at my first launch party in Hartville. I hope you can make it:)
