All Kinds of Good News!

I have great news to share!

First, I’m thrilled to announce that THE PERFECT PLAY is a finalist in the RT BookReviews Reviewer’s Choice Awards for Best Erotic Romance and for Book of the Year. I’m so honored by these nominations. Thank you to RT BookReviews!!

Second, I’m so excited to announce that I just inked a deal with Berkley for a new three book contemporary romance series. Set in fictional Hope, Oklahoma, this will be a small town romance series, published in mass market. The first book will likely release in 2013. As soon as I have more details like back cover blurbs and covers, I’ll be sure to share.

And last but definitely not least, I received an amazing review for THE HEART OF A KILLER from the Happy Ever After blog at the USA Today. You can check it out here, but here’s a snippet:

Burton has penned a tense, polished murder mystery/thriller… What makes the novel even more enticing is its lovers reacquainted theme with an HEA that will warm your heart.

Thank you, Lea for such a wonderful review, and thank you to the Happy Ever After blog!

Oh and we had a 5.6 earthquake here on Saturday night. Freaky stuff. Now I spent 13 years in California, so the whole-lotta-shakin’-goin’-on thing is not new to me, but I definitely don’t expect it in OK. Guess I just can’t get away from it. (Note: This doesn’t exactly fall under ‘good news’…but it sure was news…heh).

That’s all my news for this Monday morning. Hope you all have a wonderful week!
