Shameless Self Promotion

posted by Maureen

My December Desire, BEYOND THE BOARDROOM is out on the shelves now, so I thought I’d blog about it for a little self promotion!

And speaking of promotion, (how’s THAT for a segue??) I took an online PR course not long ago, given by the Orange County Chapter of RWA. Our teacher was Louise Knott Ahearn and let me tell you, that woman is brilliant! Most writers are, like me, a little publicity challenged. We don’t tend to think of great marketing ideas or ways to get our books and our names out in front of people. In Louise’s online class though, we learned so much it was amazing! She’ll be giving that class again in 07, so if you get the chance to take it, do yourself a favor and sign up!

Anyway, back to BEYOND THE BOARDROOM...if I do say so myself, it’s a terrific story. Funny, sexy and fast paced, I think you’ll love it! Here’s a teaser...

Everything changed the night that executive assistant Rachel Adler indulged her fantasy and slept with her boss. Shane Elliott was better than any dream, but having gone to bed with the executive, Rachel knew she could no longer work with Shane.

Engaged in a battle to control his family's empire, Shane would not accept her notice. Rachel was his right-hand woman--he needed her. And after their incredible night together, he wanted her. The millionaire magazine scion had gotten everything he'd ever wanted. But could he get Rachel in his boardroom…and his bedroom?

I have it on my Christmas list. I will send dh and the boys out with that list clutched in their hands. I also have Susan and Christie's newest.

I am so sad that Susan's next installment in the Buchanans story isn't out until after Christmas.

Have a lovely day ladies!
