What a week!

MARRYING MARI was released in paperback, which is pretty exciting (e-version still available!).


Going to the recognition ceremony to receive the mentoring award from my school (including check). Giving a small speech (very small).


Going on a three-day weekend retreat with colleagues/friends where I hope to hammer out a new idea for a writing project… as well as enjoy some good girl-talk, some grilling, and a view of a lake…


Meeting a new colleague to discuss a shared project for our creative writing students.



Happy Publication Day!

Today is the day MARRYING MARI is published by Samhain in a paperback edition. Whoo-hoo!

Want the e-book? You can order here from Samhain/e-book, here from Amazon/Kindle and here from Barnes & Noble/Nook… the e-version is still available.

Gratitude, Week #34

This week I am so grateful for:

  1. Air-conditioning
  2. Editing documents on computers (instead of typewriters, the way I did in college!)
  3. Pinot noir
  4. My new smart phone
  5. My friends, former students, and colleagues who help me figure out new-fangled social media stuff for the benefit of my classes-to-be

We’re three days away from the start of the fall semester, and I wouldn’t be surviving without all of the above.


Responses to MARRYING MARI


With the paperback edition coming out from Samhain Publishing on September 3, I thought I’d post some of the comments I loved from the e-book reviews.

“I absolutely loved the way the three are introduced to each other…. The added twist of The Colony was a unique way to explain why [the two heroes] needed a third, and how it was acceptable. The imagination of the author on this point was awesome…. Once I started reading this book I couldn’t stop, and I’ve since re-read it twice, just to make sure I hadn’t missed anything! Brava to Ms. Snow for a fabulous page turning read, that I’ll be sure to re-read again, and again. I can’t wait til I pick up another book by her.” — Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

“MARRYING MARI is an interesting and fun read with unique characters and at times humorous situations… Ethan and Gabriel are very much their own men and being dictated to doesn’t sit well with either of them so I love that they get together with Mari who isn’t what their society deems `appropriate’….. Mari is one super cool chick who isn’t going to let anyone walk all over her…. MARRYING MARI is a book that brings about a riot of emotions along with sheer pleasure in how Ethan, Gabriel and Mari stand united in the face of so much opposition.” — Romance Junkies

“…the story really had some remarkable ups and downs which created a propelling plot line. This is a story I could see having a sequel, especially featuring some of the secondary characters and I would happily read it.” — Long and Short Reviews

You can pre-order from Samhain (with a discount) here, or Amazon here.
