From Me to You ~ Are you in Milwaukee?

If you’re hanging in Milwaukee stop by the Hyatt on Killborn and grab some books! There is a book signing going on at 4:30 pm in the Atrium. Not sure how big it will be, but it has been fun so far!

I have only 3 books with me (multiple copies, though!)

 

Hope to see you there! I’ve got to run and head to more classes! Have a wonderful Saturday.

Beverly Ovalle ~ Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop March 15-28

Enjoy the hop! Every Blog Stop has a giveaway! Check out what everyone is offering!

As for me? I’m offering a signed book (US) or ebook (INT) of Willow’s Cry. Read below to see how to enter!

Alex is just a regular guy… who can hear the wind speak and the earth talk, not a bad thing for a Park Ranger if a bit unusual. His life is everything he desires. Until Mother Nature expresses her displeasure at his family’s threat to sell the land they had been charged to protect. Alex is left to try to stop the sale, finding a damsel in distress along the way who wraps herself around his heart.

Happy living in her tree, observing the world without joining in, Willow has yearned for Alex for years. Too shy to emerge, the little nymph is suddenly catapulted into Alex’s arms, her tree destroyed during a massive storm.

Mother Nature has a plan and she’ll do everything she can to force Alex’s family to continue their roles as guardians, even if it means sacrificing one she protects.

Available exclusively on Amazon and in Kindle Unlimited 

 

Obviously I like to write. But I’m a crafter too! Some of my hobbies are making Stained Glass, Sewing, Jewelry Making, plus I make most of my own SWAG. Bookmarks (the fancy ones, not the paper ones) are a fun project. I’m working on making necklaces for my next signing that have my book covers on them.

This month began with me becoming a full time writer! A dream come true. Why? I retired from my current career after 31 years. Just in case I don’t instantly hit the NYT list, I have my retirement to feed me and pay my bills, lol. Definitely a necessity!

 

So, what are your hobbies are where are you from? Enter a comment below to be entered to win! By the way, I’m in Wisconsin.

(I tried two different giveaway links but none of them seem to be working for me! So just leave a comment)

 

I’d also be happy if you followed me! Not a requirement, but it would be awesome!

A Sailor’s Delight

One night he doesn’t remember – One night she’ll never forget!

A Sailor’s Delight

Lee Santiago went from one mistake to the next. When a friend dies, exposing his mortality all too well Lee’s family steps in to force him to make something of himself. He can’t be a party boy all his life and if he wants to sign his life away, it will be on the dotted line. He doesn’t even have time to say goodbye. Anyway it was only a drunken one night stand.

Isabelle was always the good girl. Until that night. When the man she’d always worshiped finally noticed her. She couldn’t say no. She’s heartsick to find out he doesn’t remember it. Isabelle’s life crashes around her when the results are in. The truth comes out and she has nowhere to turn. She looks for Lee, but he’s gone.

Will he be man enough to step up and face the consequences when he learns the truth?

About the Author:

Beverly Ovalle dabbled with writing on and off for years when her best friend finally dared her to submit a story to a writing contest. Beverly decided she had nothing to lose and since she’d always wanted to be an author sent it in and agonized for months waiting to hear back. Contract in hand she has never looked back.

Beverly has been obsessed with dragons and romance since she was a young girl, collecting dragon books and reading everything she could find on them even down to the care of real life dragons. She’s always been slightly panicked that the world as we know it will end, so has prepped for it, haunting survivalist pages and prepper projects she felt she needed in the event SHTF.

An avid fan of all romance, Beverly’s goal is to share her love of the written word and write the hot and erotic romances that she enjoys. She writes what she loves to read and it was only a matter of time before her obsessions crept into her writing for her to share. She hopes you enjoy her tales as much as she loves writing them.

A Navy Veteran, Beverly has traveled around the world and the United States enabling her to bring her settings to life, meeting and marrying her husband of twenty nine years along the way for her own romance. Reading romances since the fourth grade she’s followed as the genre changed and spread into the vast cornucopia of romance offered today.

From Me to You

Another snowy Saturday here in Wisconsin! My second day after retiring. I’m going to try to accomplish one thing everyday that needs doing. Yesterday was cleaning the toilet and sink in the upstairs bathroom. LOL. So you can see that my goals aren’t lofty. Just necessary. Today, I’m babysitting but I’m going to work in the bathroom again. Cleaning up the stuff that has accumulated in there for years. I’m determined to de-hoard my house! Well, it may not be that bad, but it’s bad enough!

My daughter is in Madison taking the test for her LPN license! I’m praying she passes. I’m sure she will. She’s studied hard to pass everything. Next year she’ll be doing the same to get her RN. I’m so proud of my little girl.

This isn’t just a random picture of one of my books. The cover is actually my daughter almost four years ago. Just before she had my granddaughter.

Well now that I’ve done my little plug, lol, I’ll continue. Right now our life revolves around our girls. The D and GD if I start abbreviating. It’s not that we ignore our son. Not even. But, he lives in South Carolina. He recently was stationed there. We’re proud of our Marine, too!

Besides babysitting, I’ll be writing. Once the D is home, I’ll start back up on Finding Faith. I’m getting closer to the end. Then, I’ll go over the beta read my buddy Tamara Hoffa did for me before she passed. Then it’ll be heading off to my editor, Molly S Daniels. The cover will be worked on within the next few days. The artist JM Walker is unavailable for the next few days.

Then, the dreaded blurb! Though, I’ve been thinking about it. I actually have been reading a book about how to make your blurb. It really seems to help. I’ve been doing the exercises in the book and it is taking shape! So I have to read a book to finish my book lol.

I’m really trying to get at least three books done by May. If I have one done, I’ll be satisfied, but not exactly happy. One of them will be more of a novella. I’ve been almost done with it for years but had it just sitting there. Mind you, it still needs editing and a cover. But, I’ll finish one book at a time! The other is a children’s book. I’m still trying to find an appropriate title. Not to mention, I need to get an art program (I’ve been searching for the right one) to do the illustrations. I’ll be publishing my children’s books under a pen name to keep the kiddies from seeing my steamy side! They grow up too fast as it is.

Have a good weekend, and don’t forget to check for Sunday Sales tomorrow!

 

From Me to You on Today, my retirement day!

I can’t believe it’s finally here! I’m so excited! I have worked for the Government in different capacities since 1982. Yup, 1982. Today, 37 years later, I’m retiring. I spent 5 years in the Navy, almost 1 year working for the Navy as a Base Police Officer and 31 years in working for the United States Postal Service. Starting as a letter carrier and progressing to Postmaster for the final 16 years of my service.

I’ve enjoyed every one of the jobs I have done in the past 37 years. Some have been more interesting than others.

But today, today it is time to lay down my hat and say goodbye.

I’m hoping from here on out, my only job will be writer! And blogger! And Grandma!

So, short and sweet, I’m going to enjoy today, say goodbye and relax!

A fiery threesome—and true love

Dragons’ Mate

By Beverly Ovalle

Published: Boroughs Publishing Group

They had been searching for their mate, but when they find her she is traumatized and scared to be around strange men. They must get her to accept them before they reveal their true natures. Will their love be strong enough to break down her barriers? Could she truly be destined to love two dragons?

Today Annie’s dragons will shift and fulfill her every desire, which means a fiery threesome—and true love.

 

Excerpt:

They slowly stared her down, gold and green eyes unblinking. Grrr, dragons. Sometimes she could tell they thought they were boss.

Tine suddenly leapt up and licked her from head to toe. Ew. Brand followed suit and licked her too, evidently not to be outdone. Ugh. Now she was wet and sticky all over. Glaring at them, she stripped and dove into the pond. The sensation was decadent, the movement of the warm water caressing her hypersensitive body. Then the water swirled behind her and she recognized the dragons had followed her in.

“Get out!” she cried, surfacing. She did not want to share. The boys were the reason she needed to rinse off in the first place.

Of course they didn’t listen; they loved to play like this. Brand came up beneath her,

positioning himself so that Annie was straddling his snout, and he lifted her up out of the water atop his head. After the dream she’d had, her flesh was tingling and reactive, and she had a flash of panic. That supple dragonskin kindled heat better left unexplored, and she was just about to dismount when Tine leapt up and nudged her forward, tumbling her off and dumping her headfirst into the water. From the noises, she swore both dragons were laughing. Then she thought she heard, It is time.
