PS. Thanks to everyone who voted and helped me pick a romance to send to my Danish publisher to consider for translation. I decided to send them A CHRISTMAS FLING, since Christmas stories are quite popular in Denmark. Then the publisher asked for PARISIAN AMOUR. LOL I look forward to knowing which one she picks.

A Christmas Fling: A Magical Tale of Romance and Adventure by award-winning author Beth Barany

READER POLL! I want your opinion!

Which of my five romances should I send to my Danish publisher to translate?!

Yes, I have a Danish publisher and they are considering either Henrietta The Dragon Slayer or one of my romances.

I’ve sent them Henrietta to consider. Now I need to choose a romance for them to consider.

I want to send them the one that’s a reader favorite.

So instead of guessing, I thought I’d ask you!

To help me out, take this very short survey:

Click here to take a very short Google survey.

Simply rank the five romances in the order you like them best. I know — a hard choice! I love them all equally!

Or copy and paste this link:
https://goo.gl/forms/rq1EhLvH3Ggi1zrz2

As a thank you gift, I’m offering you an ebook copy of Touchstone of Love (Touchstone #1).

Please reply by Friday, June 30th, 9pm PT.

That is when I promised the publisher I’d send me the book to read during her summer vacation.

UPDATE: Replies are coming in! Aren’t these bar graphs pretty?!

 

PS. This same publisher is distributing all my fiction to subscription services around the world. More on that later!

Lovely reviews from Shabnam for Henrietta The Dragon + Henrietta and the Dragon Stone

Two lovely reviews from book reviewer Shabnam (Instagram + site) for Henrietta The Dragon Slayer + Henrietta and the Dragon Stone.

Here’s some highlights!

About Henrietta The Dragon Slayer (Book 1 of the series by the same name):

“This book kept me glued till the end and keep my heart beating fast. I totally am in love with the pairing of Franc and Henrietta cause why should I? It’s so exciting! Thanks to the author for introducing me to such a luscious, exciting, adventurous read. Can’t wait to dig into the next book.

For those who love kick ass female lead characters with great adventure and fights as also some romance to brighten up the mood, I totally recommend it.”

https://bookrevi.wordpress.com/2017/03/20/review-henrietta-the-dragon-slayer-the-five-kingdoms-1/

And…

“When we come across story books based on bravery, it is always a gallant, invincible, handsome man who is the leading character and the representative of strength and bravery. To come across ass kicking dragon slayer is very rare that also a woman!”

Lovely image of Henrietta The Dragon Slayer and Henrietta and the Dragon Stone (Book 1 and 2 in the Henrietta The Dragon Slayer series. (Image by bookrevi.com. Used by permission.)

About Henrietta and Dragon Stone (Book 2 of the Henrietta The Dragon Slayer series):

“In the book, one can see the constant fear Henrietta has to go through for the life of her loved ones. However, Henrietta is not a woman to back down and give up.”

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)

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