Touchstone Series Romance Bookmarks Are Here!

I’m excited to bring out to my readers the new Touchstone series.

In this post, I share how you can get your own bookmarks. I’ll ship you 6 bookmarks for you and your friends to anywhere in the world.

All 5 current books are highlighted in the pretty bookmarks, the 2 Christmas ones on one side and the other 3 French-centric romances on the other.

Fun Fact: It wasn’t until I was putting this bookmark together that I realized my French-focused bookmarks all take place in France. That wasn’t a conscious plan! I’ve lived in France and Quebec, and am a bit of a Francophile.  Does it show?!

Here’s the list of the 5 books in the series. Click on each link to read excerpts of each book. The links go to pages on my site.

Beth Barany’s romance bookmarks for her Touchstone series

1. Touchstone of Love (Book 1)
2. A Christmas Fling (book 2)
3. Parisian Amour (Book #3)
4. A Labyrinth of Love and Roses (#4)
5. A Cupcake Christmas (#5)

If you’d like to get some bookmarks, you can contact me and be sure to send me your address. Yes, I ship internationally!

You can also get these bookmarks by signing up for my romance list here. You get the first book in my series too!

Enjoy!

  • Nuts to crack
  • Chocolate
  • Tangerines
  • Toys special to each child

As a young teen, I found Christmas to a perfect to to daydream about meeting that perfect someone.

Now as an adult, I loved to be with extended family, especially my young nephews, hugging my sweetie, enjoying the joy of Christmas and seeing the magic and joy it brings to the little ones.

Here’s hoping my new collection, Christmas Magic, will bring you joy for the holidays.

BOOK 1:

ABOUT A CHRISTMAS FLING

What if falling in love put the life you cherished in jeopardy?

Dahlia, a Santa’s Elf, has 21 days left before Christmas to create the best toy in the world without using magic or revealing her true identity. Stuck on how to complete the prototype, and working as a temp in San Francisco’s financial district with no time for love, will her Christmas fling get her unstuck, or will she turn her back on her beloved career for her heart?

Liam, an up-and-coming financial analyst, swore off women after getting dumped by the love of his life. He just found out his ex is going to the company Christmas party with his rival Michael Hendricks. Up for promotion against Hendricks, Liam has to win the favor of his boss. His best bet is to invite the vivacious secretary Dahlia to the party. Will Dahlia be a welcome distraction, or will she turn his life upside down?

ABOUT A CUPCAKE CHRISTMAS

What if you risked losing your baking legacy by cooking up a love truly special?

Florian MacMillian needs a final job to complete his baking resume—preferably a job where he’s unlikely to blow things up with his unruly magic—before returning to the North Pole and taking his rightful place as Master Baker to all the elves.
Kate Delore desperately needs help in her fast-growing cupcake business. Florian is a perfect fit, so she brings him on as baker. Florian is happily up to his elbows in batter, and Kate’s business is booming.
But when things heat up between them, Florian wonders if he should risk his legacy to cook up something truly special.

Authors, Donate Your Books for Girls to the City of Oakland’s Community Toy Drive 2016

logo-oak023180Every year I pick a charity to donate to, usually under the umbrella of my coaching business. This year, I’m supporting a local charity, the City of Oakland’s Community Toy Drive 2016, under the umbrella of my author self. 🙂

Specifically, I’m donating all three books (in print and signed) in my young adult adventure fantasy series — the Henrietta The Dragon Slayer series — to the Toy Drive.

And now I’m asking you to help by donating books especially for girls up to 12 years old.

I thought I’d mobilize my author and fan community and make sure that they had enough books this year. A friend told me that they didn’t have enough good books for girls last year. So this year I want to knock their socks off with great books for girls! Boys too, of course!

If you could spread the word via Facebook (links to the event page that’s easy to share) or this blog post, that’d would be great.

Let’s get down to specifics!

TWO WAYS TO HELP!

  1. Ship your young adult book — must be appropriate for ages up to 12 years old (not older, sorry) — to the Mayor’s office by December 23, 2016.

Mayor’s Community Toy Drive
c/o Al Lujan
1 Frank Ogawa Plaza Suite 123
Oakland CA 94612

 

2. And/or if you want to support my promotion efforts and the City of Oakland’s Annual Community Toy Drive, become a Patron of my efforts to get the Henrietta The Dragon Slayer series in the hands of as many reviewers as I can. I have reviewers all over the world.

For every new $10 donated between now and December 23, I will donate another Henrietta book to the Toy Drive.

Hope you can help our local toy drive or be inspired to start your own! Let me know what you decide in the comments below. And the children thank you!
