Girls' Weekend Away Series by Shana Gray and a Contest!

Hello readers!

I’m so happy to be visiting Lexi‘s blog again!  And this time we’re going to San Francisco. Have you ever been? I think it’s a beautiful city and would love to go back. I’ve been twice and one time when I was there, with my mom back in 1998, we had an earthquake. It was pretty intense, because I had been fearing having one months leading up to our trip. I studied geology in college, so I understand all the forces of the earth that happen below our feet.

For me it was a business trip, but for her she was a tagalong and got to do a whole lot of exploring while I was busy at the conference. I never knew what she was getting up to. She wasn’t afraid, and for a fiery 5’3” English lady, nothing stood in her way. She was 68 when we went. She’d go out and meet new people – perhaps that’s where that’s where I get it from :-) I remember her telling me she almost had a whole organic apple orchard lined up as a business for us. Sometimes she went a little bit overboard….like me LOL

The next time I went was for a writing conference and there were no earthquakes thank goodness.

Experiences from both of those trips are sprinkled into my newest release MEET ME IN SAN FRANCISCO. The second book in my Girls Weekend Away series which was released on September 25. I’m absolutely thrilled that the readers are loving it so far. It’s garnering many five star reviews and positive comments. The first book WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS was released July 24. And yes, Vegas is another place I have been to a few times.

The third book is coming out in December. And it is called THE NASHVILLE BET. A story about a country music singer and a big city girl. Maybe when you’re reading the previous two books you’ll be able to figure out which one of the best friends will be our heroine in the Nashville story. The fourth book, which will wrap up the series is titled A MATCH MADE IN MONACO. That’s where we head to a wonderfully exotic location for some nuptials, of course, I’m not going to tell you who’s getting married!

But one thing I will say is I am planning on having a series contest. The contest will close after the fourth book. All contest information will be in my newsletter, so if you haven’t signed up for it yet, I hope you do. You’ll also get a free download of my sexy book Hot Fusion. If you’d like to sign up, click HERE.

Here is a peek of all the covers from my UK publisher! 
Don’t you just love them? I get asked why I have two covers for each book, well, it’s because the world rights (except NA) are with my UK publisher Headline Eternal Romance and my North American publisher, Entangled Publishing creates covers for NA. It’s the best of both worlds!

Speaking of travel, it’s something that I love to do. There’s a big wide world out there and staying in one place without trying to see as much as possible seems such a shame to me. It’s taking me a while to be able to travel as much as I do and next month I’m heading off to Hong Kong and Bali.

I hope you follow my travel on my social media pages. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Bookbub, Goodreads I’ll be posting a whole lotta pictures to share with everybody. I’m traveling with a friend of mine. She used to work with me and was a police sergeant. She left a while ago to become an Ontario fire marshal. She’s one of three women fire marshals in Ontario and I think there’s an exciting story in there. So I’ll be picking her brain on our trip for a future book. The only thing that has me a little nervous is the recent earthquakes and tsunamis on the islands around Bali, and yes, there is a cranky volcano on Bali - Mount Agung - and she’s been smoking for the last little while. Fingers crossed Mother Nature decides to be kind to us when we’re there and not act up.

In the meantime, for all you pumpkin spice lovers, I hope you have a wonderful fall and enjoy the seasons as a shift from sultry summer too colourful fall. I’ll be back again in December and I look forward to speaking with you all then!
