A Note From Alexa Bourne

Hello! I hope you're having a GREAT time visiting Manic Readers! I know I'm a bit overwhelmed with all the fabulous information I'm finding.

If you're in the mood for a short story from a new-to-you author, consider my HER HIGHLAND CHAMPION. It's a romantic suspense novella set in the Highlands of Scotland. If you've read that, thank you! The 2nd book, FRACTURED PARADISE, just came out this week! And celebrate with me! My 3rd novella, SIMPLE TREASURES, a romantic suspense that takes place in Edinburgh during Hogmanay, will be coming to you in a few weeks! (I should also note that ALL 3 of my novellas are set in CONTEMPORARY UK!)

If you've found books here that you absolutely loved, please consider contacting the author with the news or writing a review somewhere. Hearing what we're doing right, what people like, makes our job easier and can be a MAJOR boost when we're having a bad day. (Yes, authors do get those too!)

Okay, I'm off to play a bit more on this site and then I MUST get back to writing! Take care and happy reading!
