Time for Some Hot Turks!

...and some SWEET prizes....

I will be "on tour" as we say for the next 2 weeks promoting my TURKISH DELIGHTS series....so, you Sweet 'N Sassy types get the first glimpse of the fun!

The Turkish Delights series began as 3 "1Night Stand" short stories for Decadent Publishing, about 3 siblings in one blended Turkish/American family.  Emre and Tarkan (twin young men) and their sister Lale (pronounced "Lah-ley") have been through a fair bit of trauma once you meet them. I felt their backstory compelling enough, and luckily so did Decadent so I wrote a prequel: The Diplomat's Daughter. Then, because there was a tempting, dangling plot string, I tied that up with the final novella: Flower Passage.

That was last year.

This year, Decadent has provided me with a couple of new fun opportunities to market this series "all in one."  The ebook bundle is available on Amazon, and is currently FREE to Kindle Prime members. Check back tomorrow though, as we have a surprise for non-KDP members for the week!  This amazing bundle of stories will be FREE TO EVERYONE beginning 2/25/13!  Truly a great way to get into a unique set of stories.

Also, if you are are a fan of the printed word, the entire series is available under one beautifully designed cover and frankly, this way, reads like a long, juicy novel.

I lived in Istanbul for a couple of years with my family. It is an incredible place. In the coming days you will find me visiting many cool blogs and reviews sites chatting about my years there, the adventures both good and bad, and various other tidbits about the Deniz family. IF you are paying attention, at the last stop on March 10 (www.decadentpublishing.blogspot.com) you can win:
1.  signed print copy of Turkish Delights
2. $50 from Amazon (which will allow you to obtain the rest my backslist...ya know you want it)
IF you answer 5 questions correctly, answers of which can be found back in the posts from the tour stops.

There is a bonus question which could net you your very own BEER WENCH TEE SHIRT from my brewery! 

If there is more than person who gets all the answers correct, I will choose a winner randomly from those.

This is gonna be fun guys! I'll have exclusive entire chapter excerpts scattered around in the posts as well!

series blurb:

A young American woman comes face to face with her destiny in Istanbul in the 1960's and an epic dynasty is born.  

When Vivian Kinkaid turns around in her college classroom and makes eye contact with a man who was once her forbidden childhood friend, her life is changed forever.

A sweeping saga of family, love, loss and recovery—The Turkish Delight series begins with a special sort of magic. Then  Madame Eve works her miracles for the Deniz family, but even she can’t overcome the harsh realities that force this Turkish/American family all to deal with tragedy when one of their own is ripped from their close-knit circle.

 “The Turks” opens with best-selling classic romance for the ages.  Then ends with a thrilling novella that brings all the players back together.  Set in Istanbul, Las Vegas, and Southern California, The Turkish Delights series has it all—heat, heart, intrigue and a deep, family connection that transcends all barriers.

I envy your ability to write a series. I'm really struggling with it myself. The concept sounds great! Good luck with the tour.
