Diamond in the Rough: Scrapbookers’ Edition

Diamond-ScrapbookBoxes of books have begun to arrive at my office and it’s always special to open that box and hold that real book in my hand (okay, I admit it, I rub the covers and squeal a little every. single. time.). I have to say, I’m especially pleased with the way the special edition of Diamond in the Rough turned out.

Gina owns a scrapbook store and is living my dream. I created the store of my dreams and even let a friend of mine scrap there (my scrapbook convention co-hort has a character named after her in the book!). They have Friday night crops at Memories & More and the characters talk about projects they’re working on, so it was natural for me to include project instructions in the book as bonus content for my fellow scrapbookers and papercrafters. My favorite project included in the book is a gate album, made using the Zutter Bind-It-All. I’ve made a couple of them for special events in my life, so I wanted to share that with my readers.

If you enjoy crafting at all, make sure you get the special edition and check out the bonus content. By the way, there’s still time to enter the diamond stud earring giveaway. Email a confirmation of your book order to me at lori(at)lorilrobinett(dot)com and put “DIAMONDS” in the subject line. Every book order this week gets five entries into the drawing!

So, grab your copy of Diamond in the Rough today, and join Gina and the Friday night scrappers for a night of mystery and romance!

I’m pretty sure I’m out of my mind . . . but I am So. Freaking. Excited. about this book!!

Diamond in the Rough: Get it for yourself!

6One of my favorite ways to relax is to escape into a good book. There’s nothing like cracking open the pages of a book (or opening a new file on your Kindle) and meeting new characters. Curl up in your favorite chair, drink a cup of coffee, fall in love, solve a mystery, save a cat.

Diamond in the Rough is available in paperback now – right now! The Kindle version will be released Saturday . . . just 2 days away.

I+Love+You+Basket+EarringsBTW – look for me on your favorite book blogs tomorrow, and join me at the launch party on Facebook Saturday!

Get your copy now. Aidan (yeah, that’s him in the cover) is waiting for you. (pssst . . . don’t forget to send a copy of your order to me at lori(at)lorilrobinett.com to get your entries into the drawing for the earrings!).

Diamond in the Rough: Escape to Another World

http://www.amazon.com/Diamond-Rough-Book-Lori-Robinett-ebook/dp/B01D7X77GQWhen I was younger, I dreamed of owning my own horse ranch.

I had it all planned out. Literally. I drew plans.

The house would be huge, with lots of bedrooms, with bathrooms for every two rooms, so all my friends could come and visit. There would be a theater room and maybe even a bowling alley, and definitely a pool. But the house was secondary in my dream. First and foremost, it would be a horse ranch. There would be a barn for the broodmares, and a couple of smaller barns for the stallions. The paddocks would have alleyways between them to keep the horses from fighting. Oh, and there would be a huge riding arena. There’d be a race track. Or a show ring. You know, depending on what kind of horse farm I was dreaming about at the time.

As I’ve gotten older, I don’t draw plans for my dream places anymore . . .

I write stories about my dream places, and I totally escape into that world.

And that’s what I want to share with you. Life is full of work, laundry, dishes, broken washing machines and all that not-fun stuff. You work hard. Your day is full of all the things that need to get done. Take some time for you. Order your copy of Diamond in the Rough now, and curl up with it this weekend -escape to the Diamond J. Let Aidan entertain you (and, oh, wow, can he entertain . . . <wink, wink, nudge, nudge>).

I+Love+You+Basket+EarringsPssst . . . remember – send the confirmation of your preorder to get 5 entries into the drawing for a pair of certified diamond earrings, engraved with the words “I love you.” Email a copy of your order to me at lori(at)lorilrobinett.com to make sure your entries get registered.

Diamond in the Rough: Party and Giveaways and Prizes!!

Rough Blog GraphicAre you ready to escape to the Diamond J Ranch with me?

We’re only a week away from the launch of Diamond in the Rough. This is doubly exciting for me because I am launching the regular book (both as a paperback and an ebook) and a special bonus edition for scrapbookers (both as a paperback and an ebook). The ebooks are available for preorder now . . . and you have a great opportunity to get a fun book (total escapism) AND have a chance to win all sorts of fun things.

Every preorder is good for FIVE (count ’em – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5!!) chances to win a pair of gorgeous diamond earrings (all you have to do is send me a copy of your preorder – to lori(at)lorilrobinett.com), plus I’m giving away several goodies during the Facebook Party next weekend.

So, here’s what I need you to do:

  1. Order Diamond in the Rough (if you’d rather have the scrapbooking edition, you can get it HERE).
  2. Sign up for the Facebook Party HERE.

I’d also greatly appreciate it if you would help me spread the word. Diamond in the Rough is getting good reviews so far – if you like romance with a bit of suspense, you’ll love Rough. 🙂
