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. 🙂

 

The Ecstacy of The End

I finished the rough draft of Diamond in the Rough last week. This is the second in the Diamond J series, set in Missouri, featuring Aidan and Gina. If you haven’t read Denim & Diamonds yet, make sure you do before Rough comes out next year!

http://www.amazon.com/Denim-Diamonds-Lori-Robinett-ebook/dp/B00M8N210Y/It was incredibly exciting and fulfilling . . . an adrenaline fueled push to that last scene. I knew what had to happen, I just had to get there. I took two days off work and PUSHED myself. I wrote over 10,000 words in those two days. Once I got going, the words were flying from my fingers so fast. It was . . . awesome. And I don’t mean that in the overused way that it falls from our tongues these days. I mean it in the true sense of the word. I was in awe of the way the words flowed through my fingers and appeared on the screen, as if I did not actually play any part in the creation of them.

It gives me chills just to think about it.

Now, that manuscript is on the back burner. It needs to rest for a bit. I’m too close to it now. I’d never be able to see the flaws that I know exist, because in my mind, that manuscript is perfect as it is right this moment.

And, in a way, it is.

Simply because it exists.

So, for the month of November, I will escape into another Widow’s Web novel . . . The Danger Within. Sophie Kendrick will be chattering away in my head, as she goes on the run and tries to escape the clutches of Blake Chaney. First, I need to decide . . . will this happen in Maine, Colorado, or Missouri? What’s your vote? Reply to this post (or comment) and let me know where you want it set.

Oh, I can’t wait!
