Holiday Happenings!

Four days until Christmas...have you finished your shopping yet? Remember, books are great gifts!

Witness Protection is doing well in ebook! Thank you to all who have read it. Feel free to offer up a review on Amazon or Goodreads. They love it on those pages when books get comments. If you haven't read it yet and are looking for a fun read full of action and a sexy cop with a little attitude check it out on Amazon or Breathless Press.

If you one of the many folks that have been holding out for the print version....It is NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER at Breathless Press (Print)  !!!!   I can't tell you how exciting this is! Release date is January 20th!

Follow this link for a summary of the story. It's heart warming and relatable: New Flirt

I have a new book in the works, due for release sometime in the early spring. I just received the amazing cover art and will be doing a cover art reveal just after the New Year. The artist did an amazing job and I can not wait for you all to see it! The title is Undercover in Six Inch Stilettos.

I would like to take a moment to wish you all the very best this holiday season.

Blog Tour

My first ever, official blog tour began yesterday. Thanks to the amazing marketing person at Breathless Press, my book Witness Protection will be featured on eleven different book review blogs this week. All stops and dates will be listed below with links in case you are interested in checking them out. Some of the blogs come with an over 18 warning, this is because they are romance based and blogger is very cautious.

A fellow author took the time this week to help me out with some amazing promo material. I am still so new at all of this, I didn't have a clue how to do it. Everyone I have met on this publishing journey has been absolutely amazing. The promos she put together use lines from the book and I think she did a great job capturing the essense of each one. Check them out and let me know what you think:

Each of these will show up on the internet over the next few days in different book groups in preparation for my Black Friday Release Day!

To say that I am excited is an understatement. :-)

Pre-orders are available at the following links:

In the Spotlight

Witness Protection is in the spotlight today on the blog of romance author JM Powers!

She is the amazing author of several books including Jewel of Ramstone, a delightful historical romance I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing last month. Check out her blog at:

JM Powers Romance

Remember, release day for the ebook of Witness Protection is Friday, November 28th-Black Friday! If you waiting for the paperback, January 20th is your day.

My publisher, Breathless Press (www.breathlesspress.com) offers something called "flirts"- short stories that are just long enough to read before bed (Ha! Bedtime Stories!) Last night I was looking for something quick to read so I picked up a copy of Spencer Dryden's "Love Above See Level" about your average, ordinary beach bum who falls in love with a six foot, seven inch tall woman.  have been meaning to read this one for a couple of weeks and I am so glad that I did. As a teenager I was always the tall girl- not THAT tall by any means- but I remember being the only one no one wanted to partner with during the dreaded square dancing unit in gym class so I found the story sort of relatable. I If you want to check it out, click here:   Love Above See Level
The cover art says it is erotica but if you are concerned, don't be. Other very popular books (you know which ones I mean!) are far more explicit than this one.                                                       

All flirts are $.99.

November Happenings

Thank you to those who already follow me on my other blog, Boys, Badges and Writer's Block. I love that blog and I will continue to visit it and add my two cents to the world whenever the mood strikes me.

This blog is sort of an addendum to that one. It is a place where I can post all the comings and goings of my books and other writing stuff such as blog tours and spotlights. This is an exciting time for me and I want to share it with all of you. My first book with my publisher, Breathless Press, is available for pre-order on www.breathlesspress.com and http://www.amazon.com. The official release dates are November 28, 2014 for ebook and January 20, 2015 for paperback. There are several blog spotlights and blog tour dates coming up over the next few weeks that I will be sharing here and on my Facebook page www.facebook.com/Authorcarolynlaroche.

I am also planning an online release party for the evening of November 28th. Stay tuned for more information- there are games, contests and giveaways already in the works.

This will also be the place that I share with you reviews of books I am reading, spotlights and reveals for up and coming new releases and invite other authors to share their work.

If you would like to following what's happening, please take a moment and sign up for email updates or add me to your google+/circles.

Today I would like to thank romance author Mia Epsilon for hosting me and Witness Protection on her blog. Check it out when you get a chance.


Thank you all for joining me here where mystery and romance come together.
