“There’s no place like home,” said Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, and I have to agree. Home is a place where people gather who love each other. A home is a house with a heart and soul.
When several friends and I began talking about putting together a digital box set of contemporary romance stories, we easily agreed on a title for the collection: Love Brings Us Home.
This collection has been in the works for months! We worked out the kinks early in the fall, created a cover and 3-D image, and formatted all seven romances into one file for Kindle, Kobo, iBooks, and Nook. The box set went up for pre-order in mid-October and released two days ago to plenty of fanfare!
Today is our Facebook Release Party. If you’re on Facebook, consider this your official invitation if you didn’t already receive one. You might wonder why you should come if you’ve already picked up Love Brings Us Home, and I have an answer for that!
