• A Happily Inc gift for you!
• Fool's Gold Coming to the Hallmark Channel
SECOND CHANCE GIRL has debuted at #6 on the New York Times bestsellers list for combined print and ebook fiction, and at #8 on the USA Today list, which tracks all books on a single list! I’m grateful for and humbled by how much you love my books. Thank you!
I've been thrilled with the reaction to Happily Inc, which one reader called "Fool's Gold south." I loved that, because I think this new series has everything readers loved about Fool's Gold—a quirky small town with a strong sense of community, lots of humor, a great group of girlfriends, and of course, passionate romance.
I have a very special gift for readers who read SECOND CHANCE GIRL before October 8 – an exclusive, unedited first draft of Ronan and Natalie's Happily Inc story, which won't be out until the second half of 2018! The book is tentatively titled WHY NOT TONIGHT. If you've already finished the book, click the link below. Otherwise, save this email if you plan to finish reading SECOND CHANCE GIRL by Sunday. You'll have to answer a question about SECOND CHANCE GIRL in order to claim the gift.
DON'T MISS THE FIRST THREE HAPPILY INC BOOKS!
Fool's Gold Coming to the Hallmark Channel!
Mark your calendar now—Marry Me at Christmas will debut on the Hallmark Channel on October 28 at 8 pm EST/PST. I'm so excited for us to watch Fool's Gold come to life! Hallmark does such charming, romantic Christmas movies. They're so excited about Marry Me at Christmas that they've made it the first movie to kick off their 2017 Countdown to Christmas season!
Here are some of the fun events and giveaways I have planned for you:
Watch Party, Times Two
On October 28, I'm going host two live watch parties for both the East Coast and the West Coast feed live at 8 pm EST (7 pm CST) and 8 pm PST. (Mountain time folks, please check your local listings to see what time the movie will air for you.) The watch parties will take place at Facebook.com/SusanMallery. We can chat back and forth during the movie. I'll comment live and reply to as many of your comments as I can. I'll give away some fun prizes while we watch. I hope you'll join me!
Marry Me at Christmas Ornament Giveaway
As we've done the past several years, my team has created a limited edition 2017 Fool's Gold brass Christmas ornament. This year, it features the beautiful cover of Marry Me at Christmas, recreated in brass. But even better, for the first time, this year's ornament includes colored enamel. It's my favorite ornament yet, and 150 readers will win. Watch for the contest announcement in my email of October 25.
Marry Me at Christmas Autograph Giveaway
While the cast and crew of Marry Me at Christmas were filming, I sent them three copies of the book to be signed by stars Trevor Donovan, Rachel Skarsten, Crystal Lowe, and Emily Tennant. I autographed the books, too, and I'll give them away in December to three lucky members of my mailing list. Make sure you read each of my newsletters thoroughly so you don't miss your chance.
READ IT BEFORE YOU SEE IT
Wish upon a Christmas star with New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery’s sparkling Fool’s Gold romance!
To bridal boutique owner Madeline Krug, organizing a Christmas wedding sounds like a joy—until she finds out she’ll be working closely with the gorgeous brother of the bride, movie star Jonny Blaze. How will a small-town girl like her keep from falling for the world’s sexiest guy? Especially with mistletoe lurking around every corner!
Jonny came to Fool’s Gold looking for normal, not for love. Happily-ever-after only happens in the movies. Still, nothing about this quirky town is quite what he expected, and “ordinary” Madeline is the most extraordinary woman he’s ever met. Refreshingly honest, disarmingly sweet. Achingly beautiful.
Planning the perfect wedding leads to candlelit dinners and strolls through snow-covered streets. And Madeline finds Jonny in real life even more captivating than her celebrity crush. But will the action star be brave enough to risk his heart and step into the role of a lifetime?
