book Tours, Readers

Diamond Heiress Blog Stop

Today’s stop on the blog tour will be right here on my blog. I wanted to take this oppotunity to give you all a brand new excerpt from Diamond Heiress and to play a little game.

I have to warn you that this game will be played both here and on my facebook page, so you will have to visit both to win. The prize – A free ebook or print copy of Diamond Heiress. Winner will be chosen at random from all who answer both questions correctly by 12:00am EST. Winner will be announced Sunday October 12th.

The first part of the game is to answer the following question:

Whose wedding do Nick and Brielle attend and which of my books do those two characters appear in? The second challenge will be on my facebook page.

Nick was holding Brielle close, swaying to the music. Their hearts seemed to be beating in unison.
“They look happy,” Brielle said as they watched Roberto and Cynthiana leave amidst well-wishers.
“With a love as deep and true as theirs that happiness will last.”
“Are you a romantic?” she teased with a glint in her eyes.
“Who me? Nah. Realist all the way, baby.”
She rested her head on his shoulder again, her mouth close to his ear, and whispered, “That sounded romantic to me.”
His heart began to race when her breath caressed his neck. She’d gotten so far under his skin it felt as if she were a part of him.


Diamond Heiress Blog Tour

The day I have been waiting for has finally arrived, Diamond Heiress was released yesterday. I began writing Diamond Heiress seven years ago when I became frustrated with being unable to find clean romance novels to read. All the novels I read contained a whole lot more than I wanted to read. Where had all the Victoria Holts gone? One day I decided, if I want to read a clean romance I should write it myself, there must be other people out there who feel as I do. So I sat down and began my writing journey. Since then I’ve written many stories, I have two other works published, but Diamond Heiress was my first baby so it holds a special place.

I hope everyone who reads it feels the same. Beginning yesterday, Diamond Heiress is on the road….a virtual road anyway, on its blog tour. Yesterday’s stop was at Nancy LaPonzina’ blog, you can read her post at Today’s stop is at Author Beth Barany’s blog, To find the stop of the day you can go to my facebook page,

The tour will include Author Interviews, excerpts, and something different… a character interview. I hope you can stop at one or more stops.


Yellow Pansies in a Blue Cobalt Jar

Talented author, Nancy LaPonzina releases her latest novel, Yellow Pansies in a Blue Cobalt Jar, on October 10th. Below is a small teaser… Enjoy!

Bibliotherapist, silver-haired Rhose Guerin uses books, movies, plays, and poetry in her private practice. An advanced professional credentialing program removes her from friends and family in North Carolina to study in Westport, Connecticut where she reconsiders her fading marriage; a daughter in a relationship crisis; a parent challenged by health issues; and the reappearance of an old love.
Long held family secrets and relationships are revealed that beg intervention as Rhose second-guesses decisions made in her past. Was the path she turned from, the better one to have taken? Can she satisfy her need to grow both professionally and personally in order to find acceptance and romance in a life of her own?
There are no novels to show her how. She must be the heroine of her own story as she appraises and makes peace with life decisions boomer generation women face.

The Test of Time – Cover Reveal

Hi, everyone! This is Nicole Zoltack. I’ve written
a bunch of romances, a lot in the speculative realm, and finally wrote a time
travel romance: THE TEST OF TIME. And I adore the cover. It’s beautiful. Wanna
see it? Sure you do!

I could not be happier with it. What do you think of it?

BLURB: Katia jumps at the chance to go to England with
her best friend after Rose ditches her deadbeat boyfriend. While walking
through the market, she spies a large mansion and recognizes the guy out front
as her high school friend Tony. Just as they start to reconnect, Katia passes
through times and lands in the arms of Lord Landon, who looks like Tony but
certainly doesn’t act like him.
Katia learns that this 1815 is different from the one in history books. Trapped
in a parallel world, Katia struggles to not fall for Landon but his charm
proves too much for her. Just when she is about to confess her love for him,
Katia travels through time yet again.
course of love never did run smooth and if Katia can’t figure out and master
the test of time, she’ll never see or friends again, or worse, never be
reunited with Landon.

So I’m sure you’re dying to know the release date
and luckily it’s not that far away! THE TEST OF TIME releases September 9th! Be
sure to grab it on the 9th!
