Headline: Title for “Getting To Know Her” Adjusted…

So I had some issues with planning my book covers for the LOVE in the USA series. If you read a post I had written a while ago, then you’re aware that I’ve figured out how to write this series–and I’m not even sure if I explained it clear enough then. So here’s the extent of it…

The city love story titles like; A Martha’s Vineyard Love Story, A Manhattan Love Story and etc., will be reserved for introducing characters who fall in love for the first time. If we see the characters again as their story continues then the book will have a new title, along with the couples’ names and the book number. For instance; Still In Love With Her (Maggie & Vince, Book ONE). By the way, that’s the title of the next release after Getting To Know Her, which now has a new title. I have to change the title to coincide with Find Her, Keep Her.

And so…

drum roll…

Getting To Know Her: A Chicago Love Story is now Know Her, Love Her (Daisy & Belmont, Book ONE).

Happy 4th of July!

All best,

    Portland sounds truly interesting. I think I would LOVE that place, so I can’t wait until you write a book “there”.
    I don’t think you have anything to lose by asking these men questions…if anything I think you may gain ideas for a new character.
    By the way…. I adore gladiator sandals, I haven’t owned a pair for about 10 years now but when I find another good pair they will certainly be added to my wardrobe.

      LOL!!! Have you ever visited http://www.6pm.com they have loads of beautiful gladiators, also Piperlime.

      The lesson I’ve learned is to actually live in a city for a good two weeks to a month before I add it to the LOVE in the USA series. This is a TRUE contemporary romance series. Ummm… Chicago may not make it back into the lineup.

      Good luck on finding the perfect pair of glads! And now back to work I go!
