Starting a new year, sort of

For me, September always marks a transition. For huge chunks of my life, it meant back-to-school--first for myself, then for my sons. Although they’re grown now, the end of summer and the fading of my vegetable garden (some of it, anyway) still make this feel like a shift into a different mode.

September is a popular launch period in the tech world, too. The Kindle Fire 2 tablet is expected to be announced September 6; the iPhone 5 release date is rumored to be September 21. That is, unless I misread the Internet search results and that all happened last year.

So I feel quite comfortable with the September 4 release date of the 9th book in my Safe Harbor Medical miniseries from Harlequin American. That’s when The M.D.’s Secret Daughter will be hitting your bookstore or mailbox. By the way, you can see the whole Safe Harbor miniseries on my new Facebook page, JacquelineDiamondAuthor.

This week also marked another book launch for me. For years, as time and energy permitted, I’ve worked on a love story/science fiction thriller that spans two universes. It’s so different from anything else I’ve written, and from anything I’ve read, that I wasn’t sure people were ready for it.

 The popularity of the TV series Fringe changed my mind. The combination of suspense, wry humor, vivid characters and alternate universes really appeals to me. So I took one more swing through Out of Her Universe, which is the first book in a planned series.

This past week, I posted it on Amazon for Kindle ebook readers. Even if you don’t have a Kindle, you can download a free app for your computer, tablet or phone from Amazon and read it that way.  If you’re curious, please stop by my website and read the first chapter at Chapter One-Out of Her Universe.

To new beginnings and old friends!

I will definitely go check it out. I've been pretty happy with my Kindle Fire so I'll be curious to see what improvements they have made.
