Free Today: ECLIPSE LAKE by Mae Clair #RomanticMystery

Today is the final day to grab a FREE copy of ECLIPSE LAKE, a stand-alone full-length novel of old wounds, buried secrets, and sweet romance. Thank you to everyone who has already done so. I sincerely hope you enjoy the tale!

Book cover for Eclipse Lake by Mae Clair depicting a summer lake with rushes at sunsetBLURB FOR ECLIPSE LAKE:

Small towns hold the darkest secrets. 

Fifteen years after leaving his criminal past and estranged brother behind, widower Dane Carlisle returns to his hometown on the banks of sleepy Eclipse Lake. Now, a successful businessman, he has kept his troubled past a secret from most everyone, including his seventeen-year-old son.

But memories in small towns are bitter and long.

Ellie Sullivan, a nature photographer for a national magazine, has a habit of ping-ponging across the map. Her latest assignment leads her to Eclipse Lake where she becomes caught up in the enmity between Dane, his brother Jonah, and a vengeful town sheriff. When freshly-discovered skeletal remains are linked to an unsolved murder and Dane’s past, Ellie is left questioning her growing attraction for a man who harbors long-buried secrets.

I hope you enjoy ECLIPSE LAKE and ask only that when you’ve finished reading you’d leave an honest review on Amazon. Authors love hearing what readers enjoyed about our novels (even what didn’t work). It’s a favored reward :)

I’d also like to ask for your support in the release of my brand new Halloween-themed romantic suspense novel, MYTH AND MAGIC. There’s nothing like a little October spookiness for weaving a touch of mystery into your summer.  

Book Cover for MYTH AND MAGIC by Mae Clair depicting a brooding old home at nightBLURB FOR MYTH AND MAGIC:

AS CHILDREN THEY PLAYED GAMES OF MYTH AND MAGIC… 

Veronica Kent fell in love with Caith Breckwood when they were children. As a teenager, she was certain he was the man she was destined to marry. But a traumatic event from Caith’s past led him to fear a future together. He left Veronica, hoping to save her from a terrible fate. Twelve years later, Caith, now a P.I., is hired to investigate bizarre incidents at the secluded retreat Veronica manages. Returning to his hometown, Caith is forced to face his nightmares—and his feelings for the woman he’s always loved.

THEN ONE DAY THE MONSTERS BECAME REAL.
 
After the callous way Caith broke her heart, Veronica isn’t thrilled to see him again. But strange occurrences have taken a dangerous toll on business at Stone Willow Lodge. Forced to work together, Veronica discovers it isn’t ghostly apparitions that frighten her, but her passion for a man she has never forgotten. Or forgiven. Can two people with a tarnished past unearth a magical future?

MYTH AND MAGIC is available from these booksellers:
Amazon 

Barnes and Noble 
Kobo 
iTunes 
Google
Kensington Publishing

Purchase MYTH AND MAGIC and grab your copy of ECLIPSE LAKE for free. You get TWO full-length books of suspense, mystery and romance for under $4.00!  Either way I hope you will enjoy the free book. Both stories plus their characters hold special places in my heart.

I’d also like to thank the many friends who are helping me out by spreading the word about ECLIPSE LAKE and MYTH AND MAGIC on their blogs. To all of them, I send a HUGE THANK YOU.  If you’re looking for new authors and bloggers to follow, I know they would love to “meet” you. Today’s group is:

Book Tour: Eclipse Lake by Mae Clair #mystery #romance

Well, friends, my book tour for ECLIPSE LAKE is winding down to a close. Today is my second to last stop. You can find me visiting with Yeah Books, as I answer a few interview questions. Admit it…you’ve always wanted to know what my favorite movie is, and what superpower I’d love to have. :) The answers to those and other riveting questions can be discovered on today’s tour stop, so do hop over and say hello!

Eclipse Lake Book Tour Continues with Mae Clair

It’s Wednesday and it’s March, so that means another blog stop on my ECLIPSE LAKE blog tour. Today, I’m visiting Booklover Sue who devised a series of interview questions for me to answer. If you get a chance while you’re roaming around the blogopshere, drop over and say hello. I’d love to have you visit! :)

It’s another blog touring day for me as I hop over to Romance Novel Giveaways to share a post about character and place names. I don’t know about you, but naming characters is my favorite part of starting a new novel. I get seriously jazzed by the prospect! :)

Many times during blog tours, authors are asked to answer interview questions. I enjoy doing that, but I like it even better when I’m able to share a guest post. This one was a lot of fun to write.

Hop over to discover why I chose the names I did and what prompted the inspiration for each. As before, you’ll have another chance to enter my giveaway for a $20 gift card to Amazon or Barnes and Noble (winner’s choice). And, of course, I’d be happy to have you say hello as my ECLIPSE LAKE blog tour continues. :)

And I’m also at Just Romantic Suspense today. This is one I follow on a regular basis, a fabulous blog that showcases new releases in the mystery and suspense genre. If you haven’t checked it out before, you might want to give it a look-see and drop me a hello, while I’m hanging out there. Happy Wednesday!

Another Day on the Road, by Mae Clair

It’s another day on the road for me, as I visit the blog of my friend Carmen Stefanescu. Carmen is a talented lady who has the distinction of living in “Dracula’s Country,” otherwise known as Romania. She shares intriguing posts about her country’s folklore and history, as well as topics on writing. She’s always happy to feature other writers and is the author of SHADOWS OF THE PAST, an intriguing novel which blends parallel stories of history, and present day. I’m so glad I’ve connected with her.

Do drop over and say hello if you can. I’m talking about family dynamics and ECLIPSE LAKE, as I continue to take Dane, Ellie, Jesse, and Jonah, out and about. And while you’re visiting, consider signing up to follow Carmen’s blog. She always has something interesting to share!
